Does anyone know what the hammer attack where you hold square does? I know for the sword you dash back and charge forward, but with the hammer you just wave it around and it doesn't even do any damage, as far as I can tell.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It adds a "on next attack" property based on the specific hammer. So any basic attack (square, in air square, even triangle / air triangle) will cause a mini explosion in addition to the normal attack.
Some launch, others apply elemental damage damage over times, or negative status affects like silence.
I was just about to make a thread about this.
Yeah, every time I try to hold square for my hammer, it just swings right through my enemy and doesn't seem to phase them at all.
I've noticed the elemental damage on the next attack, and it's awesome, but it would be nice if the initial square hold attack did something.
Another point on hammers: the barbarian hammer's L1 + triangle summons souls the first time, but then it opens up 3 more L1 + triangle attacks, yes? I'm still confused how it works
