on several ocassions i've run into a good hammer user who dominates/frustrates me.
first, they're good players who move & defend very well. but the frustrating part is their hammer attacks always land first and i rarely get away without an L2.
i've tried all the hammers and never feel like i'm the one dishing it out like that.
Try Ares, with the Gladiator Hammer or the Champion hammer...Those babies are the law of hammers,
lots of nice combos there.
Even more if you use the object (i dont remember the name) wich gives you Atk Speed.
Well, I know you all are experienced, and are still baffled by this. I'm gonna go out back, and I expect to swing a sludge hammer quicker than a pole.
That would be "sledge" hammer, my friend.
Nothing in this game makes sense as far as the speed of attacks that simply should just not be so fast, especially hammers.
