    magic riposte

    Post by exandroide on Tue May 01, 2012 2:50 am

    dunno if this has been mentioned/discussed, but i've recently discovered that you can parry an attack and "riposte" with sorcery. there's no special animation, but you still get the crit bonus.

    i tested on silver knights where a CSS did 703 damage normally, but 1072 after parrying. this is NG+++ish with bellowing dragoncrest and dusk crown with 50 int, so results may vary. also works with pyro, or at least combustion/great combustion, but not as spectacular as CSS.

    As far as I know this is fairly common knowledge. In fact, with the right setup and CSS or GC you can stack more damage that way than any other way in the game.

    WHAT?!?! Hell, I did not thought you can riposte with magic!

    This way would probably be easier to hit enemies with Lightning Spears... happy need to try when I get home in the evening.

    It hit's harder when combined with a dragon roar and bellowing dragoncrest ring combo.
