Help with CGR rotation

edited April 29 in General Discussion
I've attached a clip on one of many fights I've tried after newly acquiring cgr from poolies event, I watched a few yt vids and read about its rotations and tried many but mostly the damage isn't a crit and does very low damage as shown in the video.

Would be glad if anyone threw some light on proper cgr rotation for BGs and average act 7 and 8 battles and mistakes made in the duel.

    i use in BG and mid fight
    Parry heavy , Mllll , powergain , Mllllm , sp2 ,
    again whole combo of MLLLL if he not dead relic into MLLLM , dead

    also
    u will be at 5 judgments so after sp2 if u use MLLLL again power gain before relic use

    if u use heavy before Powergain so Aptitude buff will help to gain more power. so when u do MLLLM combo for vigilance u will be at 2 bars of power.
    also don't use dex before sp2
    use parry or double parry
    use thor relic will help more and easy access to judgments.

    Error you made in your vid:
    Went sp3 without using the aptitude, it had expired.
    You dexed meaning no precision during your sp2.
    Your fight is immune to armor break, where most of CGR damage comes from.

    In a BG type of health pool just start with parry heavy for aptitude. Then MLLLL for power gain, then MLLLM straight into sp2. All without dexing before that sp2.

    ah, the sp3 was accidental tbh, im still learning cgr so I gained too much power and wanted to sp2 there, goofy gameplay from my side, ill practice him a bit before taking him in main roster, thanks

    Whatever @Priyabrata said, and after your sp2, Parry 5 hits + relic and another 5 hit opponent is cooked

    no .. the aptitide buff has no effect on the powergain. use the heavy right before the sp2 to increase the dmg

    Actually it does. CGR gains 20% buff duration for each judgement on the opponent. If you do the power gain as the first judgement, you don't get the added duration, so you will have less power

    Gotta get those re-parries going my guy.
    They're extremely helpful for the no dex short fight rotation. Although with CGR's damage a lot of medium range fights are just short for him lol

    welp, i'm facing the main issue, I keep dexing attacks, everytime opponent charges heavies or dashes at me, I just always end up dexing somehow :sweat_smile: kinda annoying honestly, its just been such a old habit that I almost always end up dexing everytime opponent interacts..

    Happened to everyone when they first pulled him man. It's a learning curve and a very helpful one at that, take the time.

    Just hold block. You'll get used to it.

    When you start fights, do Heavy, MLLLL, MLLLM Sp2.

    He is immune to armour break which is where most of the damage comes from

    Hey there, @SlayerOfGods! Thanks for dropping by with your expert advice, but you know me, I like to spice things up a bit! How about I start fights by doing a pirouette followed by a cartwheel, then maybe a backflip just for fun, and THEN hit 'em with the Heavy, MLLLL, MLLLM Sp2? Gotta keep 'em on their toes! But hey, always appreciate the tips, especially from someone who slays gods for breakfast!
