Yes, i have read every single thread about this on this forum, reddit, and the internet. I spend more time reading about how to get these basic things to work than playing the actual game
my combat stats are beteen 13-15 just from the constant training with bernard
i cannot get combos to work. 99% of the time they perfect block the first attack (whether its bernard or a poacher). 1%of the time it connects (usually randomly, because feinting doesnt work at all, and is always perfect blocked or dodged, why wouldn’t it be? weapon direction doesnt matter). Then after that, 99% of the time the 2nd attack in my combo is perfect blocked again. Or the combo simply doesnt work. Scarmaker is supposed to be the simplest one according to what ive read but it seems completely broken and doesnt activate, like all the other combos. I cannot even imagine trying a complicated combo in a big battle. blocking and moving around and trying to get a quick random stab or slash while tanking what you can on your armor is all you can do.
what was the point of putting this stuff in the game if it doesnt work?
im trying. i’ve spent about 10 real life hours trying to get the scarmaker on various enemies and i think it worked once. my stats are very high as above. everything i read about this on the internet, most people either say this stuff is broken, or they just dont bother at all and do simple slashing/ master strikes/ archery
