    A quick way to intimidate an opponent

    Post by Shkar on Mon May 07, 2012 1:28 am

    Well, intimidate may not be the right term, but for whatever reason if you use Hidden Weapon on a Notched Whip it leaves a very cool particle trail (Almost like it is covered in golden light) when you swing it. It remains invisible (and a difficult weapon to use), but I got a couple messages when I used this tactic a few times.

    If you don't quite like that particle effect, using a fire resin on it will result in no change to the model until you actually swing it, at which point it bursts into flames.

    Although probably useless, you never know when something surprising like this could throw someone off their game happy

    I suppose you could, although you will probably make them curious how you do it.

    If someone out there could get a video of the hidden weapon particle effect, by all means place it. It is a very cool effect, and so far as I know that is the only place in the game the effect occurs (no idea if it works with a regular whip).

    That being said, I had someone ask what weapon I used when I used the Hidden Weapon + Notched Whip combo. They didn't respond when I simply replied with "Pendant" sad

    It works for any other weapon when you open chests or doors while they are invisible, but not when you swing it

    best way to intimidate your opponent is to parry their very first swing. then they know you are a badass

    My personal favorite way to intimidate someone. Show you know their weapons. See a spear user, just move left or right during his wild r1's. See a greatsword? nonchalantly step back as he swings, then slap him in the face with some magic.

    I've made so many gankers 2nd guess themselves just by dodging their hits without rolling, and then slapping them around. It's worse when you have the same or similar weapon and you own them with it.

    Use backstep instead of roll.

    Only use backstep instead of roll.
