I read in KToS patch thread that in the future Hard Shield buff will disappear on (auto)swap and I’m a bit worried. I really like my Mata-Dopp-Pelt build, it feels great, it has AoE, 2h sword for single target (Zornhau/Zwerchhau combo x4) and it feels the tankiest out of all swordie builds I’ve tried while not losing out on dps.
But when the big nerf comes, what do I do?
Keep the current build, with the difference of dropping Sturtzhau and putting these points to DPE 10/Punish 3? This way I’ll lose the HS buff only when using the single target combo, and I can reapply it after.
The thing is:
My only AoE will be the bull.
Fencer will improve rapier damage, but I can kiss the block from the shield goodbye.
Epee Garde will also bring my def to the ground, unless I take Rodelero, wich will allow me to retain the def from shield, but I’m not much of a fan of this class.
PS does HS buff still work under EG? I doubt that but I just wanted to ask.
What to do?
