Weapons That Have Stomp

 

 

Notes & Information

  • In PvP, this is a very risky, but sometimes effective strategy. Gaining poise just as your opponent is coming in for a combo can allow you to blow through and uppercut them, but whether you take more damage than you deal is context dependent. Although the pop-up gives you a knock-down, it may be difficult to capitalise off this with more damage, especially as the Stomp + strong attack usually consumes almost all your stamina. It's also a relatively easy tactic to roll-dodge, and some opponents will be able to disrupt your attack even with the poise bonus.
  • Stomp's main use is to allow you to blow through an opponent's initial attack and do an uppercut riposte that will almost always pop the opponent high into the air and knock them down. In PvE, this is very useful against Silver Knights and Black Knights - sometimes you'll dodge their attack entirely, as a bonus. Also, you will almost always be able to follow up with more attacks on their wakeup.

  • Using this skill will make the Unkindled take a large step forward and crouch low. While this is happening, using a strong attack will cause you to perform a powerful swing attack that usually breaks guard. You will also gain a large amount of poise while this is happening, making it difficult (but not impossible) to disrupt your attack. You can also follow up the stomp with normal attacks but this offers no unique advantage.

  • Different weapons use up different amounts of Focus for follow-up enhanced attacks. Refer to exact values in-game at weapon screen.
