Guardian sword combo


Recommended Posts

The Guardian sword combo looks very undeveloped. In the modern gaming era like Devil May Cry 4. The sword swings are very neat very cool. Alright I am not expecting the guardian to perform some sommersaults and front flips, but hey at least make it more polished then just poke stab and swing?

Maybe just turn the energy blade effects back on? Guardian sword used to have what was probably the most striking autoattack sequence in the game at release, but it got toned down due to general complaints about particle effects such that apart from the cone in the final part of the chain, it got reduced down to a generic blue trail. If firebrand axe can generate an entire second axe, I don't see why sword can't have its energy blades.

The animation in the mace is similar to the human, but in the last hit of the aa with sword instead of a linear thrust paralel to the ground the norn lands a 45º stab aiming to the grounbd, which looks weird. In terms of animations male norn isn't the best choice for a Guardian...

Sounds like an animation that would make sense with most thrusts due to the assumption that the norn has a height advantage, but yeah, it's a bit odd with the final guardian sword chain skill...

With or without special effects, the Guardian Sword fights can be more imaginative. Since it is a game and a fantasy none the less.
Check this out https://fb.watch/49JpCvgtMi/ The sword fights are marvelous...The guardian seem to be limited to the notion of a heavy sword or armour thus dull, predictable movements? Then perhaps he can focus on defensive swings with some effects and defensive condis? Any how please make the fight scenes more exciting for fans and gamers, especially for this class....

@DKRathalos.9625 said:Btw related to the sword, what is the sword advantage over scepter? Like build for power guardian will involved GS and then Sword or Scepter with Focus. Can someone maybe guide me through the strength and weakness Sword vs Scepter?

An AA that hits? Projectile Defense. Fury access.

The Sword symbol is also a teleport skill for closing the gap, and the last sword skill is a channeled projectile block.Scepter on the other hand has one of the worst AAs in the game, one of the best symbols a guardian could ask for, and a ranged immobilize.

They are actually good complements to each other.

@DKRathalos.9625 said:Hypothetical question then could sword produce slightly more dps than scepter? Also many build suggest scepter is that because to allow guardian have some ranged?Because if we go Sword/Focus and GS means moe melee than ranged.

Depends on game mode and hit boxes. Any target with a large hitbox will take more damage from scepter. Against a foe that won't stand in a symbol and dodges the immobilize, you'll be better off with sword.

Hoo that's why they mostly recommend scepter in fractal huh since most bosses doesn't really move.

A lot of animations could use an overhaul. I think way the characters bend their upper body on some animations is mostly what makes them look so weird.For some animations they go at a 90 degree angle. That never looks good (because it's actually a bad idea to that).To be fair though, I think sword guardian AA is one of the better ones.
