    Escaping Grabs

    Post by BleuNoir on Fri Dec 21, 2012 2:15 pm

    Video proof of mine:



    You can escape some enemy grabs or reduce the damage done by mashing L1 AND THEN R1 in order, or whatever the parallel buttons are on other platforms.


    Heres the list of enemies:

    Cancel damage completely:

    Nito’s grab,
    Centipede Demon grab,
    Lost Izalith Octopus (Chaos Eater) grab and eat attack.

    Reduce damage:


    Ent grab attack,
    Blighttown infested ghoul grab attack,
    Mimic grab (either in combat or when you try to open chest)
    Depth slime grab attack,
    Demon Ruins Rockworm grab,
    Giant Clam grab (but will still break equipment,)
    Forest cat grab,
    Harpy grab,
    Gaping Dragon grab.

    I just tested this on the plant thingies in darkroot and I was able to reduce the damage by about half.

    Me too, but that's cause I panic and button mashing it works in most other games. Didn't realize it actually worked. I always assumed mimics were always fatal so I never bothered with them.

    I'd never known this. I just got good enough to avoid the grabs. This would have saved me quite a few deaths.

    Yep, already knew this. for a good long while. However, good job finding out a complete list. I knew you could cancel Nito entirely, but I didn't know you could do any others 100%.

    Never knew this, I wish it would work with Gwyn and the Iron Golem's grab attack.

    I've been able to totally negate the damage for the Gaping Dragon's grab several times, so it's possible.

    Och, I'll edit that then. I edited all of the wiki to include the information I had.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Mash the attack button? Shouldn't it be the same on all systems?
