Is Sword of Zeus a little op?

21 replies 338 views Edited Apr 29, 2013

Yesterday, I was playing with a bunch of Zeus players using lv25 swords, and I found it a little ridiculous. If you are cornered around the wall, there is absolutely no escape. You will bounce off the wall, and the attack is unblockable.

 

L1-Triangle is supposed to be predictable(just like any other weapon; yes, sword of hades is predictable), but I just see square button spammers with this sword a lot. It's attack speed is extremely fast, and the damage output is really crazy.

 

One solution would be to tone down the damage for L1-triangle. How long you are able to use that attack is fairly reasonable.

 

Any thoughts on this?

Its turns out like a small version of rage mode IMO..Like shouting out 'dont neglect Zeus players!!'

 

But it is OK since it doest last long..

I wouldn't say Sword of Zeus is OP, it's just the combo with Armour of Hercules and Reckoning of Zeus is dumb:

You're tanky, got cheap spells, nearly everything you do silences, so your opponent can't cast or use items, and then the Sword gives you unblockable attacks also... MASSIVE pubstomper, but annoying to play against even for experienced players I think.

Its very easy to counter...when you see them activate it don't run...the initial charge up slash is unblockable...but if you get in his face before he swings again you can parry him EASILY...i main zeus so i know this. don't run away from him jump over the initial activation slash and then parry. works everytime. because they WILL spam square as soon as they can.

and if he doesn't activate it in front of you and you see him running straight at you. Run straight at him and then parry as fast as you can. but to make sure it works imagine he only has the range of his blade and not the blast. so you have to be close as you would if you wanted to parry him before he activated the special move. I hope i explained that well enough lol

Jump+circle when he is running at you. Then triangle square square grapple. Then run away until the special is gone.

Hades teleport hammer works well. But only thing that is a little OP about the sword is its wave hits you even when jumping so be aware of that.
