Kinda want to know how other people are handling the class. I got addicted to Knuckes after figuring them out in the PvP mode, and I am trying to get used to Dual Sabers for weapon variety reasons. That said I’m finding them... awkward? Defiantly slower paced. In light of that I thought I’d ask around about how people feel about what they like to use and why. I know the usual answers “Daggers do good boss damage and fly, Knuckles do good boss damage and scoot, Dual Sabers do ok at everything but are good at mobs”, but those kind of answers I find lack the essence of what it feels like to play the weapons. I’d like to hear from people about what they love about the weapons they use, like how maneuverable they may be or what they allow a player to do that others can’t, or how their DPS feels compared to other stuff.
For instance: why I like my knuckles. They go out fast, are responsive, and have a PA selection to cover just about everything besides hordes of flying things. The movement PA is nice, and the damage output rewards you for good play. I don’t have to fumble around with more than 2 pallets and can use a controller compared to stuff like Techer or Force, that force mouse and keyboard for access to the subpallete. They feel really good when mobbing or against a boss which has some downtime to get PA rotations in. They feel not so good against something like Magatsu where you have to manage vertical and horizontal distance at the same time. The ground pound PA used for mobbing (look I’m terrible at names), and the one where you punch a few times with guard/i frames are a lot of fun. Coming from Techter Knuckles Fighter it feels a lot like wand smacks on speed, which I like, and it’s far enough away from what I feared it would be, which is rhythm PA rotation monster like Gunner, where you can’t take a break in the battle to think.
