    Advice for defeating long spears

    Post by jjshowal on Wed May 30, 2012 11:41 am

    So I have been getting a lot more wins than ever before PvPing and it's a ton of fun once you get your build up to where you can see a lot of improvement. I am usually able to do pretty well against most of my opponents, but the one weapon type I always struggle against are spears, specifically the DSS. There are some people that really know how to use it, not that I think it has a high learning curve, but they make it almost impossible for me to get through. Any advice on this? I've tried using weapons with a long reach to counteract it without any success.

    get close to them and either parry or bs them, it can be hard since lag really helps them A LOT but its doable.

    Getting close will usually make it a lot harder for them to hit you. and keeping a GC in your pocket to counteract their turtling helps, too. They'll usually have to switch tactics and do something like two hand to try to REALLY keep their distance. At this point, I usually unlock, roll behind them, and coming out swinging. For better or for worse haha!

    i use spears alot, best way to counter them is to tank a hit and imediately parry nearly everyplayer will see the first hit connect and will follow up,

    TWOP. Demolish and laugh. My solution. Good roll pokers with spears are otherwise immune to anything anyone else can do so stop the rolling.

    A timed wog or force will stun them out of the roll spree too, bs them or close the distance while they're stuck there.

    Brace for incoming hatemail.
