Hero evade bugged?

I seem to be having trouble using the style on my Hero that comes after evade. Now, I've played both a Merc and a Friar on Albion so I know how evade and follow up styles work, but whenever I use it on my Hero it tells me it did not perform perfectly, although uses the graphic and performs the style.

Can anyone shed any light? Is it bugged possibly?

Could not let ypu as never used it since heros evade once in a blue moon

It is one of the best combos but never get used pointless having that combo on any quickbar

But hey what do i know i am only a 50th hero was spear now LW

No I use a spear, and as I said previously I've had other characters with evade and never had a problem with styles with them.

Works for me.

This is the spear spec level 4 style, "entrap" - right?

spear hits just a bit slower than friar/merc.

you also evade less, so take logs/screenie of it not working, or get some skillsss ;<

you have to use your evade/parry style before the player/mob swings again at you, if your attack (evade/parry style) comes after his next attack you will fail to do the style

Yes yes yes, read my post - I know how it *should* work - it's just not!

Maybes it will fix as I get higher in level..

I'm also on evade I, but it's not uncommon to evade 1 or 2 times during a combat session.

Seems the original topic got lost. I'm not talking about the times you evade, I'm talking about the fact that the style you use after evade doesn't work..

get some screens. I'm not saying you're a liar, but it's very unlikely that ur style was correct but shown as incorrect. :)

The hinder styles are one of the regular gripes from the blademaster TL. Seems that even if they do work, the effect is broken as soon as you hit the enemy again... which can be 0.000001 seconds later if you're a dual wielder :)

Now if they actually worked, I'd find quickbar space for them. I'm getting too old and fat to be chasing all these albs around...

Here we go..

I think I've figured out the problem. I'll post the screenies anyways and see what you guys think, and then you'll prolly call me a n00b :)

I evaded, I hit the style, but the mob hit me before I got the style in..

evade_2.jpg


It doesn't even have to hit me, just try and hit and it cancels my style..

evade_3.jpg


Grrr Hero's are so slow.. same thing..

evade_4.jpg


By complete fluke (and prolly cos I had time too!) I managed to cancel the Hunter's Spear and replace it with Entrap and hey presto!

In conclusion, I was using the slowest weapon available, and I now got myself a new faster player crafted one and am kicking ass once more :)

Yep, the opening for a style lasts until the enemy's next attack... and you have to make your attack in the opening not just hit the button.

which is why classes who rely on reaction styles tend to opt for faster weapons, so you get inside the opponent's attack cycle... and why trying reaction styles with big, slow weapons is an exercise in frustration - they're nice if you can fluke one, but you can't count on them the way a good BM counts on parry and evade styles.

Btw, about the hindered/slowed effect. I think it has been confirmed that they delve the effect, but it does not actually slow someone down :/
