Sir Daniel is in dire need of a buff

15 replies 325 views Edited Dec 27, 2012

Is it just me or isSir Daniel  by far the worst character in the game at the moment. He is one of the slowest and clumsiest characters in the game with moves that don't do a lot of damage. (which kinda makes sense since he's a walking skeleton). His lvl one super is almost impossible to hit. 

 

Maybe it's just me. Maybe I just suck as him. Anyone else feel like Daniel is under powered?

Nope.

I've seen some absolutely fantastic Dan players. His shield gains so much AP, and if played right he can truly dominate a match.

He has underpowered supers, but ridiculously good normals. That being said some of the better Dans I've faced used his supers as incredibly effective anti-airs.



EDIT: Oh yeah and his shield is godly. So is his axe actually. Spam the **bleep** out of that axe.

Welcome to the forums!

Sir Dan is a very deliberate character. He actually has a High AP gain but is slow moving. You cannot afford to throw out your normal moves, you will be punished easily by quicker characters. You have to learn to play him.

In general instead of trying to throw out his combos, try these:

1. Always have your shield out (Neutral Circle).

2. Use Forward + Triangle for armored shield charge (don't throw it out when you're out of range, it can very easily be punished if it whiffs)

3. Use his green hand that runs on the ground, THEN follow up with the combo, the green hand will leave the opponent stunned opening up combo opportunities. Use his Axe boomerang a lot, it will hit players on the way back! Throw it out and roll backwards can catch many new players off guard even after they block the first hit.

4. His level 1 is difficult to land but not impossible. You can do a combo (square, up square + up triangle (the lightning bow) ) and then try to land a super. This is NOT a confirmed kill, the opponent can still air dodge out of it (down + L1) but it can work at times. Sometimes you can make his level 1 it work if you are under them (very situational).

His level 2 works best only if you are directly under them, the homing doesn't work too well and is rather slow.

He gains a lot of AP, and I've seen some good Sir Dan players, but he is NOT a top tier character in any of the game modes (1v1, FFA or 2v2).

Dan and Nariko are one in the same, really. They both have really good movesets and a really mediocre Super set. However, to Dan's credit any of his Supers can be used well. Nariko's Super set almost forces a lvl3 in 1v1, which really kills her for that gametype.

All he needs is buffs to his supers. His level 1 needs a bigger radius, just needs to cover a wider area, it's current radius is very thin and precise. 2 is fine, 3 needs to last a bit longer so that it's viable for 6 kills.

Ideally the lvl3 can get six, but it requires perfection on Dan's part, just like most of the other god mode lvl3s.  Kratos's lvl3 rarely gets more than three nowadays, so Dan's is fine IMO.

Actually his level 3 is bugged. If a player knows how to, he can stay in the area and never die. Until it's patched, his level 3 is worthless to anyone who knows how to nullify it.

Oh yeah, forgot about that.  I heard about it but never cared to look into it.  In that case, add an asterisk to my previous comment :smileylol:

ive never lost when playing as sir daniel, he is crazy good. You know you can aim his lvl 1 and his level 2 kills people standing above you/shoots out pixies. Along with the sweet specials, hes got crazy good combos to kill people, you can do the square combo and finish it with up-spuare, then use your special, or you can ust the hammer then the electric arrow and keep them in the air, and when they are falling just use your special in an upward direction on them. And hes a really good partner to be, if your teamate is getting rocked, just sheild charge them, and if your partner wants to use a special, just use the skull/hand to stun them
