    Am able to Feint with a leafblade without Ninjitsu or Bushido... However it appears to do nothing.

    Is this normal?

    It's a damage reducer, I believe, so you wouldn't necessarily notice.....Sure seems to have at least some effect for me. I like it. Not flashy, though. Quietly effective.

    Definitely seems to be working as intended; the Leafblade's been in the game awhile now!

    Feint renowned wyvern. It's pretty obvious when it works

    Doesn't mean something hasn't changed

    I have; I still often can't quite tell when it's working versus when I'm just lucky. Or both. Same on a Samurai with a Samurai weapon that has it (Daisho I think?) or non-Samurai with Leafblade.

    True, but if something's changed I haven't heard anyone else mention it yet.

    Try it against a riktor and if it works the EQ hits for 10-18 instead of 40-60. Leafblade would be the better weapon I think with the AI but either should work.

    Agreed
    It's should be clear as day when it works and when it does not.
    Fight a hostile who hits hard and you should see a clear damage reduction like above
    Not sure what luck has do with with whether feint works or not.

    I have Bushido and to me Feint appears to do nothing. Others swear by it but for me it's absolustely worthless. I do no notice a difference whatsoever.

    I'm wondering if there is some remote possibility it's not working in the EC Client?

    What client do you use Galen?

    I think it's a bushido/ninjitsu based special. Greater effectiveness with greater skill. Not sure if having both does anything for it though. I've never put it into an intense test or anything.

    If you look in the specials book (on your paperdoll the purple one, bottom right) You'll see it says it requires the bushido or ninja skill to work.
    So you can use it but it wont do anything unless you have the skills.

  11. At 120 Bushido or Ninjitsu it reduces all damage done to you by half for 6 seconds.

    You think I don't want a 50% Damage reduction? You think I haven't tested it out many many times on different monsters?

    It's worthless or it's broken. I do no notice a different whatsoever in terms of damage intake when spamming Feint. I've faired far better with a Radiant Scimitar on 160's than I do with a Daisho spamming feint.

    That's why I'm asking if there a small chance it's not working in the EC Client because others boast about how great it is but from my extensive testing I don't notice any benefit from using it.

    Obviously the OP is having questions about it as well which is why I chimed in and am curious to know what client he's playing on and if there is any chance it could be broken in the EC client.

    Gjohnson5,

    What weapon and client are you using when trying to feint?
