Improve the weapon’s performance

Doubles as a dodge move

Hunting Edge is another silkbind attack that allows the hunter to charge at the enemy. When the enemy is struck, the hunter can follow up with a Charged Slash or Charged Plunging Thrust while airborne. When facing an enemy that relies on ranged attacks, Hunting Edge can also be used to move out of an incoming projectile while punishing the enemy with an upward attack.
