    Here's a fun thing to do with the Havel's Shield instead of using it to guard. You see R1 spammers, use Havel's L2 special buff. You have now become a goddamn TANK. All melee deflects.

    ...Dead angling wrath of god? I haven't met a WoG spammer yet, but wouldn't blocking it with Havel's shield be good enough o.o
    If the opponent you are facing turns around (so that you are facing their back) and casts wrath of the gods. It acts like they are behind your back, and it can not be blocked.

    So if you imagine the >>> is the direction they are facing when they cast it, and the straight line is your shield...
    X >>> |X = blocked.
    <<< X |X = not blocked.

    Are you on X-box? It's easier to show you rather then explain it.



    Why not carry a weapon with some good range, predict the timing, and just swat/poke them?

    The tank I'm reviewing is forced to slow walk. That means that I'll just run up and use WoG's on my faithful fighter and nuke them for far more damage then a single poke will do to me.

    I dunno then, if they can't swat you with a 2H UGS or something the only thing I can think of is to block or partial-parry it, but you're saying that the game is basically glitched in that you can "dead angle" someone while turning away from them because it technically counts you as being behind them, when you're not.

    Maybe it's just not a viable build against glitchy things.

    Of course.
    I personally find the fact that WoTG can dead angle to be stupid. I keep hoping they will patch it, but they never do.

    Haven't had anyone Dead angle me with WoG yet. Guess I'll just keep hoping my luck lasts.
