So at what point do you know you can hit Medusa without the auto block after you see “living strands”? I thought after she specials but not

    When the furies expire

    If she has 3 furies then you can only do one hit, more than that she'll auto block you.

    No, when 3 has 3 furies she is in Living Strands mode. Only way is to nullify one or all furies, get auto-blocked or wait it out. Also, parry-heavy works

    Be mindful she can still auto block when stunned

    She can't auto block heavies, otherwise nullify or wait out the furies

    aslong as she has more than 3.
    3,4,5 or 6 she can auto block.
    if she autoblocks she will lose 3 so can autoblock twice in succession if she has 6

    If you have Domino, a dash medium won’t get parried, so there’s that

    CAP IW sp1 wont be autoblocked.
    CAP IW (high sig better) + skill might get auto blocked but will instantly purify the stun making it no parry.

    So what is the consensus here. I need to wait for furies to disappear or get auto blocked when she is in living strands mode

    You don’t want to get auto blocked in war or arena because then you’ll most likely get parried (stunned). You want to wait out the fury buffs before you attack again. If you only evade her, chances are you’ll get cornered. Try to bait her heavy and respond with one of your own until the fury buffs expire. Try dueling a Medusa to get down the timing.

    Also projectile hits (hits that don’t make contact) will trigger auto block removing the furies but not stun you.

    Lots of YouTube content on this if you are more of a visual learner
  • I tend to find Mystic Champs can be a pretty good option against her; if you can Nullify, Stagger, or steal the Fury Buffs so she has less than 3, she can't auto-block. Champions with access True Strike or True Accuracy can shut down her auto-block too, so Killmonger, Heimdall, and even Night Thrasher can be useful there. They never see the skateboard coming!
