Vs Blade Dancer


Recommended Posts

I'm going to try and get passed my mild annoyance and ask what do you do against a BD spamming that spinning (Parry I think?) move.
As an assassin I've tried stunning, guard break, knock-up, ect. yet I keep getting beat out.

Can someone explain what the move does / reads and what the heck you're supposed to do against it.

Hi there, I'm an assassin too. Generally you'll want to wait and time your openers between those spins. If they have a high amount of chi, it's very unlikely you'll pull an lmb stun off so get that thought out of your mind.


From stealth, you can wait for 1.5~ seconds and open with a 3, it'll stun. If they're not facing you, you can restealth with a 1 and if not just blow your tab for an easy stealth. Don't rmb+f combo because they have a way out 90% of the time. Immediately lbm stun for an air combo and wait out the full 4 second web. Bomb it and 1 for a restealth, and from there it's rinse repeat. Watch/wait for cooldowns and use your escapes properly. These aren't the only things you need to know, but it's the basics. 


Always put your stealth x on them before you open. If the above opener fails (and you're talented into it) you can shadowstep for a daze and air combo anyways. It's all cut and run against melee as a sin. 


If you have any more questions, I'd be glad to answer them.
