Depending on which Behemoths you have faced so far, you can craft different strikers that each has their unique effects and perks. Exclusive to these new weapons, Mantras mechanics allows you to perform three different combo moves.

Since they don't last forever, you need to constantly charge them up by keep hitting your target and then unleash a powerful Surge attack on unsuspecting creatures to pass through and damage them or reposition yourself in a fight.
