Post by Skootir » Fri Jul 13, 2012 4:04 pm

Depends on the enemy.

Van Gelfs? Chainsaw zombies? Flying Mechs? Lycans? Delimb and OT. Repeated single X strikes (x... x... x...), XXYY, counter x, 360 Y, etc. are all very good delimbers.

Walking Mechs? Flying Swallow spam. 3-4 FS usually kills one.

Hoverbots? Flying Swallow to stop them, then XXYY or Piercing Mountain (careful, don't get stuck in an animation when they die; that explosion hurts like hell).

Worms? Piercing Mountain or XYXXXX oughta work.

Red Dragons? Honestly best off charging UTs on them.


That's all I can think of, off the top of my head. Don't know of any particular Flails guide, but hopefully a few others will have some ideas for you. The Flails rock, I love the speed and delimbing power. :smile:

:sunnyd:


PS - For swarms of human enemies, 360 Y and XXYY will get you tons of delimbs. The counter X is also very good vs. aggressive mobs trying to lock you up in melee. You can use 360 Y on-landing similar to the DS, so... XY XXXB on-landing 360 Y, for example.

Maybe it goes without saying, but once you get him delimbed you hit him with an OT (press Y right next to a delimbed enemy).

Do horse stance while holding controller and Bruce Lee shrieks. Always helps me play better.

Oh, sorry you wanted HELPFUL advice. Whoopsie! :shock:

What MG said. Good post, sir! :beers:

I'd add that save as much resources as you can for Dagra Dai, 'cause he's gonna suck.

Oh, for Red Dragons I tried wind path, XXYY. It might work, but you have to make sure your first hits connect and stun them, otherwise you're gonna get hit.
Well, I'd stick with charging UTs if you're doing ToVs - much more reliable.

If I understand it correctly, Skootir is doing this run on Acolyte and it is only his 2nd or 3rd runthrough. He is taking on quite the challenge in that case. :surprise:

How is it going, Skootir? Pay special attention to anything Ylva tells you...she is the Weapons Master :ninjacool: around here.
