If i see a GLB feint thrusts towards me i'll just spam because theres no way i could possibly take enough damage from it that wouldnt be made up with a succesful hit from my swings.

That's cool and all, but not everyone reacts this way.

That big hunk of iron is unbalanced 88 speed and heavy, the scenario where a thrust could be a reliable option is so limited

So you agree its an attack with limited use, yes? Well, limited =/= useless, so I don't quite see how removing it would be considered anything other than a nerf.

Well, then i would say you have a very optimistic view on it, but not a very realistic one. A human is bound to make mistakes, and i dont see it ever outweighing those mistakes in terms of usefulness.

We might not agree on all points, but I understand your point of view.

Agree to disagree. Can definitely agree that some of this comes down to individual play style, though.

Feints in general aren't as useful against aggressive players. But when someone "spams" when I'm feinting a stab, I just cancel it into a block; the glance is only a potential problem if you release the animation far enough or if you're not positioned correctly.

GLA was one of my primary weapons back when Aus was active, but I would have hated it without the stab, even though I rarely actually released a stab on someone. Like Jona said, it's great for feint patterns, and with polearms it morphs into the right swing so well.

GLA has 4 more speed, isnt unbalanced and has a blunt thrust, thats quite the difference if you ask me. Still confused as to why you feint with slow polearms, but i get your point and in the end it comes down to opinions in a very offtopic discussion.

I'm sorry I missed this thread - Hot Chick with a Sword has one of these, so yes, buff it. Buff me and nerf everyone else.
