    So I don't really get the riposte animations for swords and such with hornet ring. You stab them, then fall down? And why does the falling down part do most of the damage?

    They have the same animation across various weapons to save space/time. When using a great sword and a great hammer with hornets and parrying the last hit is like a head lopping, but with a club it's like your just bashing their face with part of the handle.

    I know but with rapiers/daggers/straight swords etc. it doesn't make much sense.

    hmmm are you parrying enemies on PVE?

    because im pretty sure some animations change for PVP i don't think the hornet's ring changes anything at all

    It changes the animations for any critical hit on human opponent.

    I think the OP's point is the hornet ringed riposte animation looks weird.

    I have to agree with him, I can't keep a straight face when I do it with Grant...

    Also I just noticed no one really answered you second question, I think it's because most of the damage comes at the end of the animation, hence the more damage when they get knocked down.

    I guess it does look pretty silly. Oh well, just don't use the ring then. Who wants to win pvp matches in one backstab anyway? That is hardly fun or sporting. silly

    If you mean EliteKnight and I, no. It's just a coincidence that we both have a version of Cecil.

    Played with the ring some two nights ago, I still wonder why they did some of the animations. I know it may not be possibly but I would like to see them give at least each weapon type it's own special animation with and without the ring.
