Tornado Juggling Guide
By Aicho and 1 collaborators
In this guide I'll explain tornado juggling, which can only be performed with Saracen and Bear. These characters turn juggling into more of an art due to the beautiful complexity of it. This form of juggling makes Saracen and Bear two of the most efficient killers in the game.
Before We Get Started...
NEVER USE YOUR TORNADO WHEN YOU'RE NOT IN THE AIR UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING. Contrary to popular belief, the tornado can be blocked or broken. (If it wasn't then it would be WAY too OP)

Having the magic jump unlocked is useful when juggling mediumweight enemies, but it's not required.

This is pretty much the most devastating form of juggling when you know how to use it right.

Hey look, I can see Dorothy's house from here!
Lightweight Enemies
Repeat X X Y Y, X Y, Tornado, X X Y Y, X Y, Tornado, and so on

Mediumweight Enemies
Repeat Magic Jump, X Y Y, X Y, Tornado, until the enemy falls to the ground
Use this combo in PvP to make everyone fear you.

Heavyweight Enemies
While this isn't a form of juggling, it still makes Saracen and Bear extremely OP against heavy enemies, and it still involves your tornado. Walk up to a heavy enemy, press Y Y, then enter your tornado and keep moving in that direction. The enemy will be rapidly damaged 1-2 times per second until you reach the edge of the screen.
Mentionable Mentionings That Should be Mentioned and Stuff About Things
Saracen and Bear's tornado damage is strength based. That means you can level your magic up, but keep using the tornado for juggling and not have to worry about killing your XP accumulation. (Just don't add skill points to strength)

Saracen has a different magic projectile than Bear. Saracen's can be used to launch enemies in the air, and if you know how to levitate, you can solo any level on insane mode that has light enemies (efficiently) without ever touching the ground by XYY juggling them with the slow fall and launching more victims up with your projectile. If you're having difficulty visualising this, then you can always add me as a friend and I'd love to demonstrate.
I can see fagola city from here. Hey look, there's Elliots house! AAAHHH!!! ~Brandon, Elliot Goes to School

I should also point out that this is rapidly damaging to bosses. It's roughly along the same lines as Dark Pillars.

This is the secret to happiness in life

If you think strength is a good thing, THEN I DEFINITELY DIDN'T FARM WITH STRENGTH TO GET THIS XP.

Derp, lel.

For anyoen who is going to try this, it requires you to know how to juggle and have a lot of hours in the game. You cant be someone who is still having trouble with juggling and attempt this.

If you still look at this guide n such. How do I know when I preform a correctly executed juggle? Will they get trapped in the tornado longer or what?

Hey, thanks for the guide! Now that I've gotten semi-decent at juggling (again, thanks to your juggling guide), I can't wait to learn this new technique and use these characters to their full potential. I never level up strength until I'm close to 99 anyway, but I never would've guessed that the tornadoes are strength-based; very useful information.

Are we still talking about ninja? because he has a lot of positive sides to him. Aside from that you're not making a whole lot of sense right now.

I mean, positive sides
Aicho  [author] Apr 11, 2017 @ 4:29am 
what are pulses?

Uuuh... So, can you please answer the last my question: Why do Behemoth add this character, if he have no pluses?
Aicho  [author] Apr 10, 2017 @ 12:28pm 
first of all that question couldn't be more irrelevant to the guide, secondly, you can't do that with ninja

How to make a Ninja's log on PC? Like in the level "Pirate Ship": You hit him, he use the log and punch your face back!
