I like playing with Hammers because it's not so bread and butter. Although high latency and lack of a comparable Triangle while in air is meh....

 

Sword also benifits from way faster recovery times after most moves...

 

If more people who played with Hammers actually stayed near the ring out areas on maps though I'm pretty sure people would be all up in arms Smiley Wink

the best way to use hammers is to use minatour hammer because after using L1 and square you can juggle people  like with the sword into a ring out combo, or you can use L1 triangle then grapple into another ring out combo, or just hold square wait for the right hit then bam ring out. pretty much swords have everything over hammers except hammers have many ring out moves varying throughout each hammer. whichever helps you fight the best

I use both...but prefer the Hammer when lag is low. It's beastly, though not combo-friendly much. It's more of a ringout/AoE weapon which can be fun if there's little or no lag...but AoE's not registering while the slow attacks get trumped by a late attacker can be annoying.

 

So...I''d say I prefer Ares' Hammer or Minotaur Hammer...but I have loads of fun with the Cerberus or Gladiator Swords as well Smiley Very Happy

 

I won''t use the Zeus Hammer cuz it feels cheap...same with Gladiator Hammer.

in my experience i find that a sword is better in a one on one confortation but if you find someone that knows how to use a hammer, you better have a **bleep** good tactics to get in close. i find the athena blade kinda hard to beat. i dont use because i favor the blade of zeus. i lose to the blade of athena alot though.

I seem to die more from skilled people with hammers than with swords.. maybe because I use a sword myself and I know their moves very well

I know swords and hammers this is why I'm good with hammer.
Like i said: I'm a beast

Once people know that I'm waiting for them in certain location they just avoid it hahah

They avoid it or keep comming cause they want a revenge. They usually bring hammer (sometimes I'm beeing ringed out)

I have been using the blade of zeus and it really powers up the elemental attacks and it even eletrifies your enemy i think

I have never been demolished by a sword user but have by many hammer users, I've tried to use swords and while I get 10+ kills with hammers(almost never any ringouts) I end up looking like a rock em.sock em robot with swords. PM suggested tactics as they are lost to me while I slaughter with hammers and spears with ease.
