Poll: Most unreadable Riposte



  • @Kreittis:

    Where’s the billhook?

    You can at maximum have only 10 options but actually i never thought about the billhock as noone ever uses it



  • where is the brandistock?

    the fork is definitely the hardest IMO. you have to try and discern between the lighting fast upper stab riposte, or the swing riposte which barely has any animation. The LMB does not give you enough to react to such a subtle animation.

    plenty of people use the billhook but I don’t see how that’s hard to block. all the other options on the poll just require good reaction time.



  • @Kreittis:

    billhook. . . plz go away.
    I hate you for even mentioning that despicable weapon.



  • 1. Morning star stab wins EASY

    2. Spear slash

    3. shortsword facehug stab = GG

    QS is cancer but i haven’t seen it many times in action.

    I agree with the MS stab, that shit is wacky.
    QS is just downright broken, the amount of weird things you can get away with is crazy. The lookdown OH is old-GS level fucked, and the reverse stabs are mental, not to mention it hits waaaay sooner than the animation implies.
    Surprised no ones mentioned the LS yet, stab ripostes have a tendency to hit really early these days. Never used to have a problem with them, does my head in haha. At least with the SoW you know its coming in stupidly fast, LS though you can see winding up but then out of nowhere you eat a stab.

    Might just be me though.

    I feel your pain bro, low fps makes stab ripostes a nightmare. People said about the billhook, its one of the most fucked up stab ripostes imo, bonus points if you are playing with less then 30 fps when you face someone with it.

    LS riposte stabs AND overheads. Sometimes the overhead goes crazy and lands instantly, i’ve done it many times. On my end it looks like it skips the windup and release animation. It only happens at facehug range, and the timing has to be perfect to pull it off. Very random but broken.

    Recently i’ve been having issues with the billhook, the ripostes come out much later than expected.



  • Poleaxe stab riposte rustles my jimmies but I always expect it now so not that bad.

    For some reason, regular, unaccelerated swings from the zwei and LS screw my day over 60% of the time every time. Also stabs from the zwei flatten out weirdly and I can never tell they are in my mouth.



  • Poleaxe, the others are fast but the poleaxe is the one that seems least consistent with it’s animation



  • @Ready:

    I’ve never had trouble blocking the axe stabs.



  • Many people do have issues with the poleaxe stab ripostes. No idea why. Poleaxe is my go to weapon for knight I use it a lot and yeah some people just don’t parry at all with poleaxe stab ripostes when I expect them to. I don’t have any issues with it but hey I use it tons so I would be used to it.

    Because Poleaxe has an idle stab animation. If you expect it, it’ll be easier to parry though.



  • I think it’s just a matter of getting used to the difference in animation from that and idle, you see the character slightly bring back the shoulders more than in idle. I really hate riposte stabs with polearms at facehug range.



  • @INerevar:

    its not that idle imo, you drop it like 30cm and after that you thrust it forward. the 30cm drop is the indicator of the strike.



  • How is Claymore not the clear winner alongside Qstaff? Toss in a little more than 70 ping, and every single riposte desyncs ffs.



  • Claymore isn’t that good tbh, the ROH ripostes are basically unreadable, but that’s it. I still want it buffed to how it was before the major nerf it got (with slight modifications).

    Claymore with lag is a nightmare full stop, not just ripostes. You just have to anticipate. Everybody that uses it is basically a wanker.



  • stronger weapons such as polehammer or maul are worse with lag than claymore tbh.



  • @Xylvion:

    Extreme lag maybe, but a little lag is all it takes to make the claymore troublesome.

    Claymore ROH Riposte lol
