You guys make a good point, how about: D=4-7   C=8-11   B=12-14  A=15-17 S=18-20?  It allows more lower class weapons to fit into D and C while B to S allows for minor flaws to affect its position.


I'll cosign that legend.

I'll hold off on scoring...preliminarily, I think it'd end up with the same stats that I gave Lance of Ares though. It DOES have some combo potential...but that's about it lol

 

You're right though...if forced to use both weapons, I'd dread the Hermes Spear a bit more.

 

I do have one question about that bad boy, though...does the "haste" it casts increase attack speed too? If it does, it is MUCH more useful than I previously thought. I haven't used it since the game first released and didn't have a good grasp on what attack speeds were back then so I'm not sure.

If you're referring to Relic of Determination combos, then all weapons have 100% combos lol

 

Unless I'm a complete idiot, I don't think ANY Lance of Ares combos are 100%...you can't link the L1+/\ unless lag is present, and can't link L1+[] period...

another good one is jump circle, launch, sq (let it hit twice), l1 triangle, jump circle, launch, l1 sq, jump sq, grapple

 

you can extend it with a block cancel

 

jump circle, launch, sq (hit once then l1 circle), launch, sq (hit twice), l1 triangle, jump circle, launch l1 sq, jump sq, grapple

Yeah, again ONLY if lag is present. I tried that combo and had MENIAL success with it (read: rare). The L1+/\ almost NEVER connected. As a matter of fact, I don't recall being able to follow the [] [] after the Launch, /\, [] [] with anything other than a grapple or another [] press. When lag is REALLY bad, you can sometimes squeeze in a L1+[] but it immediately forced iframes, as did any other move at that point in the combo.

 

You're used to a Lance of Poseidon which has that slow effect that allows alot of followup :smileytongue:

nope :smileytongue: on the contrary, you cannot have ANY lag present or it ruins the timing. sovereign taught it to me XD

 

their combos are nearly the same....LoP just has better extension. you may be timing the l1 tri too late....it almost always works if done at a precise window :smileytongue:
