Eir Combo Guide [Under Construction]
11/25~A little bit on shifting~Some Tips and Tricks
11/26~Adding some stuff on AAS~Bit about skills
11/30~Added a simple combo
12/6~A bit on simple combos, and FMB stuff
Combos, combos, combos. I am making this guide because I don’t see one in the forum. That’s pretty much it.
A~ Normal Attack
S~ Pentagon Light
SPACE~ Down Attack
Double Tap Any Direction~ Dash [I will use >> ^^ \/\/ or << to show which way]
No Skills Combos:
A--- One whack.
A-A--- Two whacks.
A-A-A--- Three whacks.
A-A-A-A--- Four whacks, and the last one hits the enemy into the air.
A-A-A-A-A--- Five whacks, and the second to last one hits the enemy into the air, and the last one hits it again.
A-S--- Two whacks, with the second one hitting the enemy high into the air.
A-A-S--- Three whacks, with the last one hitting the enemy into the air not as high as A-S.
A-A-A-S--- Four whacks, and the last one hits the enemy far away, but not into the air.
A-A-A-A-S--- Almost the same as A-A-A-A-A, or perhaps the same.
Dash in any direction-A-S--- Two hits, and the second one hits the enemy far away.
[Those are all the combos that end with the enemy flying (as far as I know), but with no skills]
There are many way in which you can combine these, but I will not tell you them mainly because I am super lazy. Plus, you’ll never learn if you never do, huh =D?
Here’s the longest one I put together:
A-A-S-A-A-A-A-A(or S)-dash the way you are going-A-S
Lets get a bit more fun!
S-Space--- Okay, I lied. This isn't a beam combo, but it makes you step back very quickly, but still face forward.
S-S-A--- A pinkish-white beam flies out and hit the enemy into the air. Very useful in PVP if your enemy has 0 HP and is moving around.
S-S-S-A--- Pretty much the same as S-S-A, but, as far a I know, it’s slower and doesn’t go as far. Need to do more experimenting.
S-S-S-S-A--- A dark purple beam that hits the enemy and stuns them, making them unable to move for a few seconds.
S-S-S-S-S--- The flashiest one. You hit the enemy around four times [correct me if I am wrong, I am still a low level] which knocks them back a lot.
These beam combos are fairly useful, and you may be using them quite a bit. Especially the S-S-A. The S-S-A is psychologically a good weapon. Before I was an Eir, I played a Sieg and got SO freaking annoyed at that. I think she got like 150 damage on me... and when I got pissed she basically just comboed my butt so bad, it wasn't even funny. AND she was like 2 levels behind me...or maybe because I just suck! =D
Now, lets get into the skill combos.
Over here I will provide the combos the knights at the Practice Arena show you.
Required Level Combo
Two A-S-A-Dash-A-S-Moon Pieces
Five A-S-A-A-A-A-S-Dash-A-Holy Shout
Nine A-S-A-A-Full Moon Bullet [FMB}
Thirteen A-S-FMB-Holy Shout-Tears of Goddess [ToG]-Moon Pieces
Thirty A-S-Moonlight Chain-FMB-ToG-Moon Pieces
Forty-Three A-S-A-Dash-A-S-Moon Bind
Forty-Eight A-A-A-A-S-Dash-A-S-Holy Shout-ToG-Sacred Wave
Forty-Eight A-S-A-A-A-A-S-Dash-A-S-Holy Shout-ToG-Sacred Wave
[That’s about it. You’d better thank me for that. It took FOREVER. These are basic combos that work well, but you may make even better ones once you get used to the game]
Now, lets go on to self made combos:
This is one of the main features of Lunia! Self made combos.
A very basic way to combo is the Holy Shout-ToG combo. It requires only a little skill, if not, none at all.
A basic one for it:
It does moderately good damage, and you'll probably use this quite a bit for low level PvP. If you want even more damage, I'm not absolutely sure, but I think you can add in Moon Pieces at the end.
On to Skills:
This skill isn't so good as a comboing thing, because when used for a combo, it's used for a finisher and it hits at most 2 times, which isn't so much.
Great skill, but keep it at level 1. It's basically a 'Hand of Earth' for Dainn, except much flashier looking =D. You can combo Tears of Goddess after it and deal somewhat massive damage. You can also continue with Dash-A-S and continue your combo for even more massive damage!
Full Moon Bullet (FMB):
You shoot this big blob of purple to hit your enemy and make hit fly back a fair amount. Great skill, good for some combos, and a nice damage dealer. I suggest 1, 2 or max.
Tears of Goddess:
Very cool. It sprays out pieces of ice onto the enemy. Pretty powerful. Definitely add some points into this .
Will add more as I level up.
Lets go into the more advanced part of comboing~
You may be wondering: ‘What in the world is “shifting?”’ It’s the move in which you move when you are attacking. For example, I am hitting the enemy to the right, and I ‘SHIFT’ and move it down.
To start, when shifting, ALWAYS use numpad. Numpad will help you work wonders compared to arrow keys. Shifting is extremely useful when you hit a wall in PvP, and you want to continue the combo without having to wall attack.
Now, lets get down to it!
To shift, you have to dash first. The dash has to be extremely short, so that takes a 'little' practice. I will you the numbers on the numpad to simulate dashing.
This is Perpendicular Shifting. This is how you do it. If you are facing 6, then you can double tap 9 and then continue attacking 2. That is one way. You can also, if you are facing 6, double tap 3 and then continue attacking 8. That is the basic shifting. If you master this, you can work incredible combos.
Another type of shifting is Diagonal Shifting, which is a little more challenging. Let's simulate you are facing 6. You get the enemy into the air, then quickly double tap 8 and continue attacking toward 3. Or the other way by double tapping 2 and then attacking 9.
A basic combo for shifting is just:
That's pretty much all I know about shifting. I'll add more when I get more pro =D.
Ok, on to the 'much' debated thing on whether to use AAS or AS.
AS is used very easily for shifting, as I have already said. However, some people say that you are able to AAS for shifting, but I still can't do it because I am a noob.
Another debate is the pause after the S in AS. You can dash cancel this. Easy enough to do.
Tips and Tricks:
~Numpad is the best way to move around your character, no matter what class. You will be able to dash diagonally to help your shifting a lot, and even in stage, dashing diagonally helps.
~Don’t panic. This is a large problem for a lot of people. When they start comboing someone, they get nervous and stop their combo and run away. Just keep doing it!
~Practice. I suggest you first try these combos out on the practice field, then make some up, then spar in the campfire, then PvP! You'll be very successful if you just consistently PRACTICE.
~Focus all your items on Vitality. I know, I know, this is just opinion, but Eir is so LOW on it. Undertaker stuff is pricey, but full of hp. For beginner lvls [1-3x] I suggest you just fortify some hats, pants, and boots so you can get SOME Vitality.
I only allow people from MyLunia to use this, but email me at ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ to ask if you can host this guide.
