Last night I have carried out some testings, and found that the same mechanism might apply to the Lances of Ares and Zeus as well. The Lance of Ares, though, will blow the opponent away with its L1+triangle so some modifications are needed. The Lance of Zeus works quite well, since its L+triangle stuns an opponent anyway and so saves one step of midair circle; and with ele buffed, one can substitute many steps with a buzzing annoying ball . . . 

 

So maybe it's the death vortex of all Lances except Hades?


And THAT is why I'm a Lance Man......till Gauntlets hit anyway. It doesn't work on Hades cause L1+T doesn't stun them or launch rather it simply knocks them back (plus it grounds you)

This is why I hate the stupid training gladiator. I had the first half of the combo down when I first tested the lance but couldn't extract much else after the L1 Tri (gladiator never gets slowed/burned/marked etc) so ditched the weapon and never took it into battle.

Thanks for this thread though, I probably never would have come back to the lance without it... and it whoops some serious arse.

Yes the same concept can be applied to the lances of other gods as well. I've gotten the Lance of Hades to launch mid combo with it's L1+H  before, but am having trouble faithfully recreating the scenario. I wanted to wait till I confirmed this tech with all lances before I said any more about the subject. Whenever possible I still use Jumping O for the extra damage into guaranteed launcher.

Are you not entertained!

Yeah it's funny how the training dummy reacts to certain attacks differently than a live opponent. Yet another reason to test evrything out in an actual battle.

The only issue with this weapon is the extremely low PP. And the slow cooldown.

But it's indeed a nice combo.

Poseidon4ever, stop mentioning how you found the combo first when you didnt share them. It just makes you look shallow and arrogant.

^raw doesnt care. and he knows that i disagree with the combo being shared Smiley Happy we have our own opinions. I did find it first, but raw deserves credit for posting it. I never would have done so.

Did you just say "raw knows me well enough unlike you, troll harder"? I don't care if you are an arrogant person as an individual or not. What I'm saying is that your statements clearly make you seem full of yourself.
"I did find it first, but raw deserves credit for posting it."? I don't care if you found the combo first or not. I'm just saying that your statements are vain. Just like this one. You just have to mention that you found the combo first.
Very cool.
