The drop pattern of a sword determines how attacks made with it are sent to the opponent.
Basics of attacks Edit
This is a basic recap of the material found at swordfight.
A strike is sent when a fused block is broken. The colors in the strike corespond to the colors in the drop pattern in the same column the strike is droped in. Breaking a 2x2 fused block with a red/red dirk (see pattern below) would send a 1x4 sword. If the sword fell in the leftmost column it would have the colors of red, blue, blue, blue (from bttom to top) while if it fell in the rightmost column it would be all yellow.
If the strike would form a sword that is taller than the drop pattern, the patteren would repeat. Sending a 2x10 strike with a dirk in the left most columns would have two red blocks at the bottom and the sixth row.
|Sprinkle pattern for stick and white/blue foil|
The bottom two rows of the attack are used for placement of sprinkles. If the bottom two rows are the same (such as the foil and the stick) the arrangement of the sprinkles sent to the other side will be the same.
If signficant amounts of sprinkles are sent as an attack, this pattern is repeated layer upon layer. The best sprinkle swords have the bottom two rows with disjoint colors such as the skull dagger.
Left/Right handed Edit
|Right (red/red)||Left (green/red)|
If the hilt of the sword (first color in the combination) is made with blue, green, or purple enamel the sword will be flipped.
