Dark Cannon is a great combo starter for Cecil; it's saved my ass many times. Especially the DC>Shadow Lance Combo, though it requires swiftness. It can be dodged, but with precise timing, it can be used well. Nevertheless, it's powerful than the DC>Valiant Blow combo IMO.

I've been testing the DC > Shadow Lance combo and the only time it failed was when I was purposely delaying the timing to see when the Shadow Lance couldn't connect.
Currently, after a successful ground block I use this combo with great results.
I seem to get a 50% hit rate with it online, so I dunno.
Requires testing. That I'd rather get someone else to do because I have loooots of other testing I need to do.
I don't mean to be a jerk slayer, but it doesn't require any testing, this combo has been known forever (refer to Ghurdich's Cecil guide) and works easily, you can even just spam shadow lance as DC is finishing up. Just so people know.
