Hey folks, maybe someone could enlighten me on what I’m doing wrong and tell me how I’m expected to be able to do combat in this game.
I have a sword skill of 15. I have a warfare skill of 14. I have a strength of 17 in the wilds. I am using Herod’s Sword longsword. Yet, every single time I try to begin a combo strike the enemy always COUNTER ATTACKS on the first attack. Meaning, offense is utterly completely histerically out of the question. I try either the longsword technique from starting low to the left (then stab stab) or mid to the left (then low right, stab.)
fighting defensively against one opponent because its literally impossible to get through anyone’s guard (if I attack they will just master stroke me and bash my face in) is the only option in the game. However since I first beat the game on release (and they revamped combat to include enemies whose guard is literally impossible to get past) multiple opponents now attack at once from all directions. Meaning, if I don’t take opponents out quickly I am a dead man. But again, it’s literally impossible to get past the guard of the opponents and the only chance to win a fight is now master stroking enemies to death so…
Does anyone have a recommended mod to fix this? Is there some great combat technique that I’m missing because combo strikes no longer work. They only work when your opponent doesn’t parry or master stroke you and now they parry/master stroke EVERY SINGLE ATTACK… This is the first game I’ve bought that patches have slowly made the game unplayable. I’m not sure if I’ll buy warhorse’s second game at this rate.
