Flinching From Blows
Why is it that if I impale a guy and while I pull back for another swing he can sprint in an spam at me even though a split second ago a sword was in his chest?
You only interrupt an attack if you hit the enemy in the windup phase of their attack. If that’s the case you could do a follow up yourself and if it isn’t the case you can keep attacking if you have the faster weapon (or if you are out of reach of the enemy weapon). If however the enemy has a faster weapon and you are in reach be safe and parry first before attacking again (unless the windup of your weapon is short enough that you can get an attack going before taking the hit thus trading blows).
