    Unexpected Counter to Spears?

    Post by Seignar on Mon Sep 17, 2012 8:50 pm

    Shields. The "Pierce Shield" to be precise. It has B scaling for DEX which can be about 350 AR in the end and it i a thrusting type weapon, so it goes with Leo Ring. Now, you might say why would I say the Pierce Shield is a counter?

    For one, when wielded in Right Hand and 2H, its Light Attack, and more importantly, its dash attack have auto Block Frames. The push also has start up block frames. I think this is key to being able to attack a spear user since they'll need to cross your guard first. If you don't like Pierce you can use the Spiked Shield for the bleed.

    Also, even if you miss your attack, you can quickly 2H block which has added stability. The 2H Strong Attack of other shields also have auto-block frames for like 30 frames.

    Just though we should discuss this. It is a pretty safe weapon to use in general because of the block frames.

    bows are the best counter imo, you can always get close and parry but sometimes lag can make parrying spear a pain in the ***.

    Aye, bows are the safest counter. The shield idea is worth looking into though.

    I will say I just had hell of alot of fun fisticuffing everyone with a barbed shield on my left hand and a pierce shield on my right. Though the DMs probably didn't like it.
