Devastate is a skill available in Dragon's Dogma.


"Extends a chain of one-handed sword slashes across a broader range."

An advanced version of Hack, generally more effectively when facing multiple foes.

A series of up to four mostly horizontal strikes in a wide arc. The fourth needs some recovery time.


  • Requires a living foe or destructible object to be hit in order to perform the next strike in the combo chain.
  • Press [Light Attack], -pause-, [Light attack] repeatedly to perform.
    • When executed correctly, the second swing is in the same direction as the first swing, with the Arisen spinning to bring the weapon around.
    • When executed incorrectly, the second swing will be a cross-swing in the opposite direction.
