Can anybody explain to me what Shadow Axe is supposed to be used for?
If I’m following up st. MP, it seems like going into cr. MP and then cancelling into something will always be safer and offer more damage than Shadow Axe. They both combo now on hit, so it’s not a matter of combo vs. frame trap. When exactly would Shadow Axe be a better choice? Does it allow comboing from a greater distance ( like, from hitting the tip of the st. MP or something ), or maybe some kind of air combo that cr. MP would whiff on?
Thanks for any insight.
