    Another persuers dodging tip.

    Post by XachAttack on Tue Nov 20, 2012 6:14 pm

    I know there's a buncha these, but I just tried something really simple multiple times and it worked every time.

    Simply roll either left or right twice, then roll in the opposite direction once, keep an eye out for Dark Bead so if you see it then roll again. The timing for the rolls is when they're between you and the caster, in the middle.

    This was done with mid-roll, so I can't promise the same results with any of the other speeds.

    I can confirm that this works. It's a great way to screw up it's tracking since it is relatively slow. Did it with fast and fat roll.

    Awesome, that's great to hear!

    I'm pretty glad someone actually responded too, it's been saying that people kept viewing it but the lack of responses made me worry it actually wasn't as effective as I thought it was.

    This is a great tip, I'll definitely have to test it out myself.

    I have a hard time visualizing how this works. Could you explain in more detail?

    I can try..

    Let's see, so you see the Persuers active over the caster, floatin' up there. Then you get in range of the spell for it to begin chasing you.

    Walk backwards a bit until the spell is between you and the caster then roll either left or right side twice, like roll left twice for example, then roll to the opposite side once. Then boom, you should be safe.

    I'm not the best at explaining stuff, so that's the best I can come up with, I hope it helped.

    The basic idea is that you want to bait the Pursuers. When it get close enough, you roll to one side to attract it then immediately flipping to the opposite direction to throw off its tracking. Hopefully, this explanation is simple enough. I immediately knew what you were talking about because that's the kind of strategy i would come up with too.

    Do you do the rolls while locked on to the caster, or unlocked? Does it matter?

    I've been dodging pursuers like this for a while now, and it works very well. Lag sometimes ruins it though. I do it locked on to the caster, but i don't think it matters. I-frames take the hit and pursuers vanish.

    Yeah, same as Fin, I did it locked on.

    I've been using an over complicated version of this for mid roll dodging a while now, glad to hear there's a simpler approach. I'll be using this from now on.

    I have an even better way. After it fires roll forward. It goes over you and doesn't hit. I think it disappears after you roll under it, but I don't really know because I can't see behind me. I just know it never hits me.

    All you need is one roll, not three.

    Also, this was using fast roll.

    Does this work with DWGR roll as well (rolling into it or rolling side side then opposite side), factoring in the increased distance?

    I don't see why it wouldn't, when even Fat roll worked.

    Imagine a fat man rolling away from Pursuers like a potato. I bet my opponent's jaw dropped. xD
