    You Dutchies are all the same..... Chaos Blade with Black flame is about as cheap as it gets.




    j/k the only way not to get hate-mail is to stand there and die.

    Black Flame is great to stagger anyone with less than 60 Poise. Most builds, mine included rock around 53 Poise, so they can tank a 2H R1 from a Greatsword. Black Flame staggers these builds, while Great Combustion doesn't, so it's great to stop their bs attempts, or use it to chain with another attack while they're stunned.

    BF is also great against turtles, because it does huge damage to your Stamina if you block it.

    I'm pretty sure you'll get hatemail for that as well. lol!

    "cheap" is often code for "I can't beat the tactic you're using because I suck."

    Not so much here, but definitely in normal play.

    I knew what you were referring to, I just chose to ignore it because I was still basking in the glory of my victory.
    My victories in PvP are quite the rarity so I treasure each and every one, even if it means spamming BF+GC...

    And for the complete picture, it was you who wanted to move our little get together to LI, with no room to move or evade, and I had to do something to not get smashed to death by that horrible weapon you were wielding...

    You deserved every victory, especially the ones where I hesitated to stunlock you to death or when I decided to run right into your pyroglove hand silly

    black flames fine, if people haven't figured out the new poise break required to ignore it its their own fault, pyro katana style is a tried and true method and thus if they can't counter an older technique like that thye are pretty far behind in the pvp arms race.

    A question I've had for a while... What's the big difference between BF and GC?

    ^BF is to break guards and poise. You use it against turtles or to stagger people. GC is just for damage (it also staggers, but to a much lesser degree, so only consider BF if that's your goal).

    I'd give an in-depth explanation of why BF is not cheap, and when it could be slightly cheap, but I'm pretty sure we all feel the same way about the spell here so I'll save you all the wall of text! BF is not cheap.

    Because everyone that I've ever seen with BF just constantly runs at me and spams it regardless of what setup I have.

    Of course I just roll out of the way or what have you, but its still annoying.

    Black Flame = 60 poise damage

    Great Combustion = 40 poise damage

    @Generic:

    People using a spell improperly shouldn't annoy you! If they want to waste their casts, that's their problem... Meanwhile, BF is a great spell since it fills a niche: breaking guards. I absolutely love that spell because of that, because I HATE fighting turtles--so boring, get that shield out of here!

    @Animaaal: I think its guard breaking is much more than 1.5x that of GC, though. That's what I mainly use the spell for, blowing people's shields away.

    Oh for sure. I just didn't see the poise damage posted. If it was posted earlier I apologize. Some people don't realize it is all.
