Some information for Shikudo monks. I'm no expert. Probably a typo or two.

Changing between forms and being able to do an off-balance "free" transition at certain kata counts is pretty essential. As is not overusing a form and hitting the kata count that makes you "stumble". If you don't know your max kata count just test it, otherwise its probably 13. I kind of think it scales to something, maybe dex. Someone can correct me.

Tykonos ------> Willow
    Unlimited Kata, Flat Damage Resist
Willow -------> Rain
    Arrow Catch, Faster Balance
Rain ---------> Tykonos, Oak
    Double Your Max Kata Count, Increasing Kata Count Increases Damage
Oak ----------> Willow, Gaital
    Flat Damage Increase
Gaital -------> Rain, Maelstrom
    Avoids Parry lol
Maelstrom ----> Oak
    Attacks build Kai, Increasing Kai Increases Damage Resistance, Crescent InstaKill


Abilities bypass rebounding. Can be suffixed with LIGHT. Not an exhaustive list of AB SHIKUDO.
