The in-game help mentions a technique called "special move canceling":
Lastly, take advantage of special move canceling! This is an advanced technique with which you can cut short the duration of certain moves, effectively becoming faster than usual. For example, try performing an evasive roll immediately after landing an attack, or while drinking a health tonic, and notice how the duration of those moves is cut short. Use this technique to create devastating attack combinations while staying out of harm's way!
Sounds cool! So this mentions these two combinations:
- Defensive roll immediately after landing an attack
- Defensive roll while drinking a health tonic
But it hints that there are more possible combinations that can lead to making some moves shorter. What are those combinations?
