The full question is, what is the best or coolest weapon combo that you got, seen or usually can get when fighting? For example, the classic Straight Sword R1, R1 and the R2 for roll catch. Obvious examples of certain halberds and a lot of new weapons allow for some crazy combos.

One really cool one is the Valorheart has an R1,R1, Jump Attack and then Weapon Art R1. It works like half the time, it is pretty insane, of course it leaves you with very little stamina but still awesome.

Either way, sound off in the comments to be featured in my video filled with your answers! Please be clear and concise with your answers as I will be using them. ENJOY THE WOMBO COMBOS!

Anything that mixes throwing knife in with the melee combo. [insert SURPRISE MOTHERF%#&@! meme here]

Also love axe/Hammer charged R2 with warcry weapon art.

A few rolls with Milkring to keep them guessing. Then Chaos Blade WA dash into R2 dive attack as they try to get away.

Edit- I don't think this the best or coolest. Just what works the best for keeping people off guard with that build.
It's funny watching people try to parry a dive attack.
Hilarious when they keep doing it.

claw
weapon art=>L1=>R2=>reverse backstep=>L1
Watch on youtube.com


also something many people ignore is that you can cancel many weapon arts with a forward R2...
with the old wolf sword it does this: https://youtu.be/w32lJmdTZho?t=53s

I never tire of watching the 3-hit hornet riposte on the dragonslayer axe. Just looks good & mean, and isn't absurd like the scythe riposte.
I can see it in your eyes. If you didn't invade, didn't pillage, whatever would you do?

I personally think those huge weapon riposte combos are one of the most ridiculous things in the game.
But to each his own.

@Nahztek-Shadowpath @Nunkuruji
those are not combos.
the term combo in fighting games refers to a chain of inputs that flow seamlessly into each other so that they eventually all connect with the opponent. But each moves requires a specific input.
while I agree the hornet riposte animation on ultras is cool (has been since DkS although some riposte where better in DkS2) this does not qualifies as a combo.
unless I over interpreted the OP of course but I do not think so. and if so, the term used is inaccurate therefore misleading.

It's a combo in the term of being a combination. Which I agree is a bad way to describe it in terms of videogame jargon since their is no actual combination of action for the player to perform.

But semantically, it's still a combo.
Not that I'm arguing the point. I agree with your post.
