No to the people who keep saying using striking and shindo only for kills is viable. Just no.@Iocun Also phoenix is awful because it strips your defenses as wells so if any blademaster ever uses it, their basically dead anyways as they have to put up all their defenses again in middle of battle. Phoneix also requires some decent amount of shin, and how quickly shin depletes over time makes it pretty much useless.
Regarding people being dumb about what I said where Shindo/striking concerned:Did you miss the part where I said HR3s? Most don't have focus. Also, the bigger point was that saying "Blademasters don't have offensive tactics besides limb-breaks, impale, blade-twist and broken star." is flat out ignorant. Learn how to use striking and shindo please. They are not useless.And what is this, "Blademasters have no utility."I wonder if some of the people posting even play.edit: standard svo can be beaten by shindo/striking alone.
Agravain said:That it worked on a novice using a stock Svo who used zero defensive maneuvers isn't a good estimate of how effective something is. Using striking alone really isn't viable. In a similar way that randomly starting deathstrike isn't.
I once killed Nyudas with an unprepped heartseed. Heartseed is literally all I did, no other attacks. That doesn't make that a viable tactic. Anybody who is saying that something being accomplished once against a clueless person makes it a possible combat strategy for real fights can kindly stop posting in the combat section.

I'm pretty sure some Ashuran Blademaster was requiring and testing HR3+'s on their ability to combat using only Striking. Totally viable. I have seen BMs finish fights with nothing but Striking/Shindo.
Dorn beat Svo (against a blademaster lacking focus) with Striking and Void. It can be done.Doesn't that hint at offensive potential greater than impale/blade-twist?
