Sword World Weapon Combo

13 replies 354 views Edited Apr 3, 2013

Why am I unable to block this? People just slice you up and you die with no way to stop it. It's complete stunlocking.

Unfortunately (or fortunately if you're the one using it) it requires someone to interrupt the person doing it, that or item use.  Some people just survive it, which is rare but happens.

 

Depending on the mode, it's hard to really pull it off without being interrupted by someone else.  I've had to deal with it less than usual stunlocks or combo juggling, both of which I find more annoying.

I just spawned right into my area, went through the Hyperion Gate and someone picked up a sword and killed me instantly at full health. I don't even see how they had time to charge the sword to begin with.

Instadeath is abnormal, very abnormal.  It should definitely take a bit of time to hack and slash and hack until their health is gone.  Sounds like you received another gift from the god of lag or he's a super hacker.

Once I max my Ares level I'll probably move onto the story. I only have a few levels and all Gods will be at 30. I don't see these glitches being fixed any time soon along with the exploits and everything else crazy with this game.

 

I figure I'll save myself some frustration although the story may have a whole new batch of What the Eff.

They need to decrease the amount of damage done when thrown, it just destroys Ares or Zeus with one toss. I know you can dodge it but even when I time it right I still get ripped apart by it.

Yeah, a few days ago some guy got me with the sword on Bog of the Forgotten. You know that elevated part to the right of the spear, but to the left of the Gorgon control area? There's a little square area I got cornered in and this guy did a never-ending combo that took me from full health to death. Sucks. lol.

If you hold Circle with the world weapon sword you will continuously slice your opponent in place. Usually does full life if you catch them in it.

The sword targeting is very flawed as well. You pretty much have to be in a perfect straight line for the throw to connect.

 

It is a swift killer against Ares and Zeus simply for their abysmal defense.

Urgh I saw a guy catch 3 people out doing the hold-circle combo, incredibly strong and no-one could do anything about it :/
