Dude if you just tap rmb with a shield when facehuging someone, it has the effect of a feint and cost 0 (ZERO) stamina. Test yourself, its super effective and its scarry as fuck lol, try on your friends they will love it.
Since you said you are new to the game, I belive its valid to say to you that just like normal feint, you gotta use this tecnic when you got the fight momentum. Don’t feint someone who is going to attack you because you will A) take a hit to the face B) feint and parry and thus r-ape your stamina (sometimes you can make your opponent feint to parry, but you cant use this everytime imo). If your opponent is on defensive and you are really close to him, tap rmb for the win!
But you should try to play vanguard more, its the only true medieval man class in the game fyi, you will love the polehammer against knights and 1 shoting maas/archers with the zweihander. Also its good for you to learn drags, b0ckswings, cftp and all these shit. Not that you can’t learn with other classes, its just that vanguard is the only true medieval man class in the game, rest is for pansies
That’s is good tip for whole gameplay but i like knights more, i like shield game dont know why but that’s me. I will try to play with him but im not sure i will be good like on knight. :)
