    Worst Weapon Attack

    Post by callipygias on Thu May 17, 2012 3:06 am

    I wanted to see if the Pike's ridiculous weight was somehow justified so I +15'd one up with my main character. What the hell is with that dash attack? It's completely ridiculous. Ran me straight off a cliff first time I tried it.

    Every single move that is ridiculously slow and is only there to see your enemies go flying, which admittedly, is fun.

    Seriously? I thought it was mostly worthless and never bothered with it, I'm most certainly going to get one now to play with tomorrow :affraid:

    It is kind of fun trying to use the stupid attack effectively. Kind of a mini-challenge.

    wear a boar helm while using the dash move and voila, mecha boar cosplay. mostly you just use the attack to close distance on an enemy thats around 30 character legnths away if your being practical.

    Forgive me if I'm wrong, but aren't you guarding for that entire dashing attack? In PvP it hits about 5 times.

    I love the reminiscing, incidentally the powerful red eyed spear knight in 1-1 was the first mob to kill me in Demon's souls silly

    It has 3 hits at least, I know. If someone got hit by that attack in pvp it needs to be on a wall-of-shame somewhere. Maybe they were drinking heavily. Even most engine enemies can get around it after the first hit. I'll keep trying, maybe it's a fantastic move that I'm just not yet using properly.

    Heavy Armor + backstep = nearly no animation for warning. I've used it for several PvP kills. I've considered making a build built around this, but I'm unsure if the charge blocks at the same time, and no longer have my pike wielder.

    Then put me and several others on the wall of shame. That attack hits like a truck, stunning you if you have anything less then 40 poise, and once you're stunned it doesn't let go. The wall of shame should be for people that had enough poise to not get hit.

    i admit the attack isnt something you use often, but it is still good at least better then a few other r2s i can think of. perfect time to utilize it would be in the sewers/depths or some other tight hallway.

    i used to think the bkgs 2h r2 was sadly slow... not so much any more since i've gotten it off and one shotted some pvp opponents in the depths... its hard to tell if the user is changing where their aiming the attack so you can use it to bait and punish a bs.
