    Switching weapons to escape stunlock?

    I remember seeing a video where a guy switched a weapon to escape stunlock. Can anyone confirm this?

    Yes. The timing needs to be impeccable but you can do it. I have done it by accident and haven't recreated it on purpose.

    Works for me from time to time.

    I always have my Pyro as my second weapon and I have had about 35/65 success switching to it and escaping stunlock.

    Confirmed, but it's only necessary on rare occassions. Most of the time, you're better off trying to roll out or parry.

    Confirm x4. It works, but only needed if its a greatsword class, since other's you can roll out of. Hate MLGSs Mages that can cast one-hit-ko spells aren't supposed to be able to stunlock that far away, or poke that far away with a butterfly horn either.

    You can also swap your LH weapons too. This will help you keep your RH weapon buff.

    This move was really helpful in DeS when the dual kat would pushlock you.

    You cant weapon switch out of a MLGS stunlock? i've never been able to, but it is still possible right? Even at 72 poise the first hit staggers me, it's ******** Prostration

    You just can't roll out, that's all. It's ridiculous.
