Designed for east of movement in the field, this gunblade recharges the ATB gauge each time an enemy is attacked.
The Axis Blade is a very interesting weapon that has some special uses. It's not very strong statistically, but its two abilities are quite powerful. Later in the game you can synthesize ATB Rate with it, which is basically a constant mini-Haste. But the Attack: ATB Charge ability can be extremely effective in the right situations. Having Lightning Blitz large groups of enemies with the Axis Blade, for instance, will cause her ATB bar to fill very quickly, allowing almost constant attacks.
