So I had previously agreed that this sword was a garbage weapon but I don't so much anymore. It is meant for a high Physical Power, I believe, with an added Elemental power to boot.
Okay, so the stagger effect after a L1+triangle ain't always reliable for a followup grapple, but the power it has with the right loadout is amazing...that and the L1+square special makes for some INTERESTING combos...
It is, in my opinion, the hardest weapon to use in this demo but OH SO satisfying and LETHAL if used correctly. I am still working on my combos and timing with it but it is an okay weapon.
That being said, I find myself scoring MUCH better with the other swords, having an easier time in combat and more overall success with all of them. I gotta think there is more to the Ares sword than meets the eye though...L1+square combos don't do quite enough damage and are unreliable at best...
Aw hell it's just fun to use.
Ooh I was beasting with that CerBerus blade for awhile...that thing is fun to use!
Ares Blade is still hit and miss for me. But still getting better...them combos. Ever wanna challenge yourself, go with Ares' sword!
