Halberd advice

Post  LRVG on Tue Mar 11, 2008 5:13 pm

Quick question, does anyone have any tips for an aspiring halberdeer? I like the thing, but I can't get the nuances of it down. Any advice? And which is better, the stronger swings on aggy, or the stronger stab on mason?

Left click is best for halberd. Also you probably noticed it has a diagonal swing. It really does register its hits diagonally. So aim your halberd so the target's head, you want to kill, is in its path. Usually you'll kill an archer and footman in one hit in the head with a halberd if pulled off correctly. Also the reach for the halberd is the same as a knight's claymore. So either strike first or evade/block his hit then strike. The moment you strike, back away and avoid the player's attack because since you move and swing slow, its best to play it safe.

Keep practicing otherwise.

Things to keep in mind while you practice: The halberd should kill a knight in two swings, if it doesn't, your not hitting the head and that should become your main focus. The halberd should kill archers and footman in one. Headshots are 3X damage, don't bother swinging if your not swinging for the head. I find aiming for the top 2 inches of the enemies skull is the most effective, as that way i am not as likely to hit the shoulders or chest when i swing.

Could someone give me some updated advice for 1.1 halberd? Theres a noticeable delay between swings and blocks now, and anything with full health just walks all over me. Any tips?

Really? I thought it was fine. Keep practicing until you know for sure the max distance your swing will reach. So you always get first strike. I always use the horz/diagonal swing. Right after the swing, instead of backtracking or turning around to run. Instead i run sideways and around them hopefully towards their back. Halberds you run faster strafing so i suggest using that as a backdrop maneuver. Always stay on your toes and be aggressive with the halberd. It's very powerful and enjoys decapitating :]
