Partizan has options superior to Sword. Using
Slide EndScythe with Avenger in many situations beats out Spiral Edge or anything Sword can actually do. Similarly you can setup full PP bar Stab Javelin avenger on some attacks where Sword could only setup a single counter. It's just lagging behind in overall use and Fatal Tornado is fairly useless.
Even WL brings some new things to Sword as it can instantly click Avenger on a couple of PAs without charging and get more damage out of it than either of guard/step/uncharged PA options. The 10% bonus shuts a lot of cross class uses of weapons for the purpose of single target DPS since it's super competitive from meta perspective, but bringing weapons for AoE is still fair game.
Yeah I'm not buyin' any of that for Partizan...I've tested the thing out seven ways from Sunday, it's just way easier to spam the Sword things because things die quickly all the same and Spinny move has better mobility than Slide End, and for bosses on downs nothing beats Anime Cleave.
Wirelance is trash (except for the gap closer), and I'm gonna need to see some demonstrations if anyone wants to claim it isn't.
Yeah, no. Objectively wrong.
Sometimes I feel most of the playerbase doesn't understand the game and are just doing whatever and then make threads and complaints like these.
Ok buddy, nice "objective" data you got there to back up your point lol
