Nariko is a GODESS, I need advices...

18 replies 218 views Edited Jan 30, 2013

So I started to use nariko a couple days ago and I discovered that she is capable of a LOT of nasty things, in a good way

but i'm looking for advices, as I did with sackboy (thanks to everyone)

 

Which are her bravest combos?

I always start with neutral circle and follow with up triangle blah blah, and sometimes I even try down circle, but it's very unsafe so I don't use it very often...

 

how the heck should I use her supers?

I think we all know that nariko's lvl1 and lvl2 are not the best in the game, but i've found that her lvl1 is not that crappy, used properly, but her lvl 2 is giving me a lot of trouble... specially in open stages

 

otherwise, should I spam any move of her? should I use her projectiles?

Omg I thought so many dirty things,first since you said "nasty" and I thought you said breastest combos. On the other hand,you should dfinitely use her projectiles,I wouldn't rely on her level 2 too much,but if you plan on using it stay on the corner corner of the map,at most you should be able to get 2 kills with it,I'd just save for level 3 in my opinion. Sorry don't know much about her,basically just the well basics.

Her air up square is definitely a go to for when a crowd wants to gang up on you, can even combo into up square on ground to air neutral circle if you are the right hieght above ground. Her up circle is really good has great durability good to use against drake and sackboy as it passes through barrels and cake. Also usable as a hit confirm to level 1.

isn't that kill confirm like VERY hard to execute? and I didn't know that her up circle passes through the barrels and the cake, it's good to know it! i'm going to use it more then

How the hell do you quote??
Ok, i'll basically copy/paste from my SRK post so bear with me. It's pretty long.

"She's definitely a weird one. Nariko is not as top tier as I thought she was going to be. Super Bot definitely gimped her. Shame on Omar for giving me false hope. When he said "She's my favorite character at the moment" I was expecting MUCH better...Oh well, i'm a character loyalist having 3 stars in every chapter of Heavenly Sword.But I digress, her ap gain comes from her combos and in FFA they last too long and most of the time will get interrupted. My play style with her in FFA is actually a mix of zoning AND comboing. I apply the same factors to 1v1 with less emphasis on j.u3 unless the opponent whiffs. Her main tools for offense are j.u3( because u3 is unsafe af) j.d2, u2 and j.u1.

The Basics: (u3/j.u3)
This is your life and primary AP gainer. You will be using this move more often than not. 20ap per hit and can hit up to two times but you HAVE to short hop it (I'll abbreviate Short Hop as SH from now on). Double jumping into j.u3 is ok but why wait to land back down when you can just SH it? By the time you throw the disc when you SH you'll be back on the ground and ready to throw another one. You can combo up to two hits whether it's the same person or it bounces off to another and hits them. In 5-8 hits you'll have lvl1. Another good use for this move is to make a throw mix up. If your SH disc hits an opponent and leaves him in the fallen back(abb. FB) state you can wait for the opponent to recover and throw him. If done correctly, the opponent WILL NOT have enough time to stop the throw, they may be able to tech it if they;re good at teching throws, but they will definitely get grabbed. If you're close enough and you SH j.u3 and it whiffs you still have a little time to throw while they're in block stun. This is perfect for 1v1 situations,(can also happen in FFA/ those brief moments when the four of you pair off and fight) This move can be spammed and can effectively zone out other characters but the start up can leave you vulnerable to combos/supers (Cole's/Dan's...etc)/Sly's counter so make sure no one's close enough to punish when you toss it. If your SH j.u3 confirms and you're spaced correctly (you have A LOT of time to run up and combo while the opponent is FB so you can do that as well) you can also confirm into lvl1/lvl2. This is not as impractical as it seems. Everyone whiffs you just have to wait for that unsafe move/whiff to happen and punish it, HARD. More viable in FFA then 1v1 but i've done it countless times in 1v1 as well.

Reunion( d2/j.d2)
Another one of Nariko's best moves is j.d2 . It's a"get over here" type move and it's pretty good but not so much d2. I forget how much AP it gains but it's a good start up for most of the combos you'll be using in FFA and 1v1. It has good range and the air version is practically safe (to combo starters and most supers, not upward supers like Dan's/ Cole's,,,etc) If used low enough, you can grab an opponent and link into j.d1 for a quick combo gaining you a lvl1. Like j.u3 if you;re quick AND low enough you can go for a throw mix-up while they're FB. I also like to use this move to interrupt and punish lvl1's just like j.u3. But this has less start up time and can interrupt at higher heights.

Aerial Moment: (u3)
Her best anti-air. You don't have to sit there and take that aerial attack. this move has a lot of range and can combo into a quick 70+AP combo. Might be able to AP burst but i'm not near my PS3 atm to check. Sometimes will trade with certain attacks( Kratos's j.d1) if not timed perfectly. It's not that safe so try not to use this when others are scheming for super confirms.

Unfurled Sky a.k.a "the Interrupter" tm: (j.u1)\
As the name states, this move is good for aerial crowd control and interrupting aerial combos. Has pretty good range and is fairly safe to combos depending on how high up yo are. Can be use in a nice corner combo."

Also, don't rely on lvl 3 on every stage if you're playing FFA. Honestly, most stages will only net you 3 kills which, in my opinion, is negative. Focus more on her KC for level one. Scout for a good opportunity and shoot. Check out my "Good nariko Players?" Thread for more info.

No, it's not "complex" but when you quick reply 99.9876% of the time you wouldn't know how to do it.

well press reply instead of quick reply, and thanks for the info, I know about her lvl 3 not being very reliable on big stages, but in small stages I get something between 5 and 8 kills, so it's something to think about
