Ghost players. I need your help regarding The Hood synergy.

SDPSDP Posts: 1,593 ★★★
I play her a ton, but outside of some crazy powergain stuff in Variant1 and some obvious matchups for tanking L3s, I never use The Hood synergy.

It was time for some ROL testing and such, and wanted to see how far I could get with her without items. Of course, I figured I’d need Hood for this. Here’s the deal,

I can’t seem to avoid Recoil from my own specials more than like 1/10 times. It seems you have about a millisecond to phase before it initiates. Often it seems it has kicked in before she’s even landed. Which means a phase is impossible.

Excuse my ignorance on this, but I always viewed this as a viable HP saver. It is extremely useful and easy to pull off for tanking L3s (which is insanely powerful), but is it actually reliable for avoiding Recoil?

I’m sure I just need to practice the timing. The window seems extremely tight. Any help?

    I think that it’s self inflicted ergo Hood doesn’t effect it? I really don’t know

    Can someone explain to me what that hood synergy actually do because I’m pretty confused when I see it
  • It is reliable for avoiding recoil, however, it’s a very nuanced thing that could be compared to hitting an all crit sp2 with ghost without the wasp synergy. Possible, but hard. I expect it’s just something that gets better with practice.

    You take no damage while phasing

    Well don’t you already take no damage or do you mean like direct damage

    I think once you're solid at it, you can probably avoid the recoil around 75% of the time, if you're really focused on it certainly more. I'm probably around 50% unless i'm really paying attention to it, but that's after months of ghost play and her being my main war attacker for a few seasons

    Just dex back as soon as she lands on the ground. Timing is fairly simple to nail, practice needed for sure. And yes it is very reliable for avoiding recoil.

    Means take no damage even for SP3

    I was testing sp1 a ton. That may have had something to do with it.

    Thanks, guys

    You can’t do it with SP1 since you can’t phase after. But you can reliably phase the recoil on SP2. I can do it 8-9/10 times.
