Improving skills, tips?



  • I took advice and tried to apply them. I think I did alot better this time around. I do have a question though. I watched one of Shara’s vids and uses a delayed strike alot. I cannot seem to do this for the life of me. Is it drag right, then left? I dunno. Help please. In the mean time tell me where I need to improve.

  • Hey there,
    this was our very first video, exclusively for the flamberge, you’ll see it explained there.

    You have to drag to the right and have the enemy at around 10-11 o’ clock. To bring your enemy out of the parry-timing do a different strike-drag to force faster contact and then a slow one again, you’re almost guaranteed to land a hit.

    Also I recommend never starting with the vanguard jump-attack. It does no additional damage and on top of that it leaves you very vulnearable when missing. So you’re basically better of just slashing or going for a stab. (You can stab now while sprinting as Vanguard, the patch helped alot.)

  • Hey Shara!

    Thanks for the input. Watching the video I think I see where I was doing it wrong. I was dragging right then bringing my reticule back onto my opponent. I will try this and see if I can implement it in the next video, and fix my mike (TOO LOUD!). As for charging, I noticed the lack of damage in later battles and found out about the overhead, but not the slash, So I will give it a go. As for the charge will it be better implemented or is it bonedry useless at the moment? Again thanks for the input. I loved the Zweihander in Dark Souls and endeavored to be the best with it even against parry builds so I plan to do the same here ;)

    See you on the Battlefield sometime o7



  • So Shara are you going to make a video titled “How to Kill Jack Baldy”?

    I can’t really, he’s US East and I’m European, so the ping makes this literally impossible. But I’d love to fight him with even pings.

    i kind of giggled at that…



  • Who?



  • I am pretty sure the vanguard rush attack does extra damage, i’ve seen a table of dmg/weapon and it included a sprint attack, and i think it’s the vanguard attack, not a jumping attack.

    Correct me if i’m wrong. xD

    EDIT: Here’s the link i mentioned https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc … TZnc#gid=1
    The Sprint Attack is the vanguard ability, I think xD



  • Setting your sensitivity higher really helps. So you have more control when you’re swinging

    You are wrong.
    I was specifically talking about the flamberge sprint attack, which does the same damage as a regular slash, so there’s no point using it when running with a flamberge.



  • Hey Shara can you do a in depth tutorial on how to sword and board? I am having a tough time with it. Specifically on the Knight. The shorter reach, coupled with the timing of the shield is causing me problems. I have gotten over 100 kills using the sword and shield with the knight, but I don’t feel as powerful using it, when compared to my Vanguard 2 hander.
