Swords Can't Perform Frontal Finishers

Recommended Posts

I mainly do Inaros, and I found out I can't perform any frontal finishers with my Krohkur after blinding my humanoid enemies with my 1.
Which led me to test it out with my broken war, and I still get the same results: Unable to perform Frontal Finishers toward blinded enemies.
 

This was more then a month ago. I put up a thread and the Art/Animation section but it never got fixed.

Even after several fixes and patches this has not yet been fixed.
Now I've found out that Excalibur's Exalted Blade can't perform frontal finishers as well! (And all this time I thought that weapon was a Nikana type)

I think the problem originates from the new finisher animations that were given to the sword weapons at June.
Which after a short while this bug started to occur and losing the newer animations as well.

I know that the sword category is not popular, but can we get a fix soon?
An already unpopular set of weapons getting excluded from a whole feature of move sets makes it even worse.
If not, at least do it for the sake of poster boy.

 

My worst fear is that this fix will have to come with Melee 3.0, which at this point I'm quite sure it won't come this year nor in the early 2020s.

This is still not fixed. I think a bug that alters the performance of an ENTIRE CLASS OF WEAPONS WOULD HAVE A TAD MORE PRIORITY THEN OTHER BUGS.

Fellow Inaros player here, just got into using the Krokhur myself and just noticed this as well. Definitely a pain. Please FIX!

It just goes to show how rampant the Whip/Pole Arm Meta is....

But that's not really an excuse.... surely someone at DE must have hit radial blind with the Skana only for the Finisher to fail.... or are they all Meme Striking with The Atterax/Kripath Too ?

If they used Excalibur Umbra it would have been a lot more easier to notice since this affects Excalibur's Exalted Blade as well.

Either that or their just spamming E while using his Exalted Blade

I didn't know this suddenly affected Exhalted Blade too.... I was doing Frontal Finishers with it last month. Haven't played umbra since.

Until this bug happened I always thought his Exhalted Blade was a Nikana. Turned out it was a sword lol.

I thought it was neither....

Unlike Valkyr's Claws, Exhalted Blade (and Baruuk's Desert Wind) doesn't behave like the rest of the weapons of The Same type....

Well for this bug, it seems to be affected as well.

I'm just hoping they won't say "we'll fix it when melee 3.0 comes out"
Cuz at this point I'm not sure if Melee 3.0 will be fully rolled out even at the end of 2020.

It will be here.....just as soon as they give us that universal vacuum.

Just noticed this with Crimson Dervish today. Thought I was doing something wrong. Glad to see it probably was all me. Sad to see another ignored bug. There's another glaring visual bug with the Zaw Nikana that has gone unfixed for more than a year. I'm respectfully disappointed, DE.

While I acknowledge the fact that DE has noticed this, I decided to keep posting it so other people can know as well.

Also act as a reminder.

 

In short, Swords still cannot preform frontal finishers. This includes exhaulted weapons such as Excalibur's Exhaulted blade.
