I went through most of the combo's with the Guardian's Weapons. A thing you need to understand about this game. You have combo fields and combo starters which are usually just skill attacks. And you have combo finishers which usually cancel skill attacks. This system is very similar to Street Fighter in how strong attacks cancel weaker ones. What I'm going to do through the course of this video is show you how to link things together.
First thing I’ll put out there is this game has attacks called linkers. Most traditional linkers in this game cancel attacks. Guardian only has one of those attacks and it’s called Judges Intervention. No matter what you’re doing in Guardian JI can cancel it. And cause 3 second burning dot damage. The dot damage duration is your time to pull out another move. The way the counter in this game works is you have a second to do continued attacks. Auto attacks usually don’t keep a combo going on a slow weapon. So knowledge of what can cancel is key to getting the big damage achievements.
Another Linker you have is Virtue of Justice. It can also be done off CD anytime it’s ready. It applies a 5 second visible blue flame. To you and people around that all counts in your damage combo. Note that the 5 seconds is a great way to pill on attacks. And throw out things that are linkers that don’t cancel and take time. Take for instance purging flames and symbol of wrath. The only cancel auto attack and in the case of PF it takes a little time to come out. But once it’s out while the target is burning from VOJ. This all continues the combo and gives you more time to call out things. Like the flame dogs or the ethereal dog pet from the collector’s edition. Also note that both these pets place a burn as well. In some cases after all yours are long gone.
Where you go from there is all up to you. I have it to the point now from practicing so many different combos. And trying to see what works in what situation. I can do it on command now it took a lot of imagination and practice. For sure you have plenty of other combo’s out there. But if I tried to show you every little thing this is a 2 hour video. I’ll pass on talking for two hours and hope you enjoy this later.
