Gameplay tips and progression

This build is a PvP based build meant to be played defensively while waiting for the opportune moment to strike. It is designed to wear your opponents stamina down (and possibly yours due to blocking/dodging) and then give you the advantage for the next engagement due to massive stam regen. The next attack will be yours since you possess the ability to strike extremely quickly multiple times; thus strike locking your opponent and preventing attacks or dodges. The bleed effect causes your opponent to have to attempt to engage you giving you the upper hand since that sort of playstyle favors higher stam/stam regen. If you can master this build and learn to control the battle; you should see a gradual increase in the amount of kills you dish out while in Black Phantom Form.

Note: Ending your strike rotation with a back step strike (which is performed by pushing the left thumbstick forward and pressing R1 at the same time) allows you to disengage w/o allowing your opponent to retaliate with an attack of his/her own and also to regenerate your stamina for your next move.

Note: It is important to remember to activate your Warding ability before your first engagement. If you happens to improperly time a dodge or a parry; that extra dmg reduc can be the difference of life and death.
