Maul Swing Attack Interruption



  • Is the maul attacks supposed to be interrupted by simple blade damage for balance reasons or is this just an overlooked combat mechanic? You’d imagine that if i swing a maul, its going to keep on going no matter what happens to the user attacking with it.

    All of the two hander attacks are easily interrupted by a dagger, why?!This tactic of interrupting 2 handed weapons with a small attack weapon is astoundingly effective as MAA. Especially since every two hander for the Knight, other than the swords, are slow as hell for heavy headed weapons.

    This is the main factor that drives the whole “Swing spam = You win” and “Fists beat all two handed weapons” arguments.



  • It does go on swinging passed some point when it’s too late to stop it.
    If you get hit earlier, it will stop.



  • Hehe I would say maul should never be interrupted or parried/blocked and one shot everything, but my opinion on this matter is extremely biased.



  • You can only be flinched when you’re readying your weapon, not when it’s actually being swung.

    At least you have the honesty to point it out.
