o I spent a greater part of the day trying to practice executing brokenstar in Sanya (I only picked Sanya cause I was fighting another blademaster, and it was his level 3 band against my level 1, I figured it would be the better option to slow him down.) Since this will also help me do this sort of thing when I have to go in Mir to survive monks or knights damage.
anyways here is me attempted to quad break him. I follow it up with an impale and then impaleslash, and as you can see I only get a very few amount of blade twists and I have my level 1 band equiped. (sorry for no time stamps I didn't have them at the time
and then here is him doing it: http://pastebin.com/xTR8RRec
- he manages to get me to 1000 bleed, in Sanya with no band at all. (Also SVO is not curing my legs right which let him get an extra twist in and I don't know HOW to fix that) in my attempt I only got him to 400 bleed..
So I am very confused as to what I am personally doing wrong during my execution that means I can't do this with a level 1 band, compared to his which let him do it unbanded..and if I need to I can go and get logs of me doing it with time stamps now. (I removed grip from my attacks, I have a fish sigil, I don't even know why I was using grip.)

It's not the arties that were making that not work. An impaleslash and two bladetwists isn't going to be enough for a brokenstar on basically anyone. Torso damage is definitely a good idea. Personally, I've never seen all that much difference from prepping with focus affs, but I'm also a newb, so maybe I just didn't notice or something.
Yeah, that's why I added the bit about adding a check for balance before sending it, which you said you didn't know how to do. Anyway, see how just triggering it off impale works out, and if you need help setting up something more complex later, feel free to hit me up.
