I've picked this up for a change and I'm finding the weapon art combos aren't working. R1>L1>R1 people can block the last R1 if they have a shield, R1>L1>R2 can be rolled out of before the last part of the R2. The latter combo being nerfed seems well known, but everyone seems to think R1>L1>R1 still works, but it doesn't.
I was maining this yesterday as an Aldritch Faithfull (lvl40 +7) and I couldn't get up the ladder at the water reserve without being summoned first. Game is not dead.
