Do not fill this in!== Polishing and Improving == As you grow competent in duels against intermediate players, you'll still be thinking about how else you can improve and start to take on top players. There's always room for polish. # Combine slow and fast primal attacks from different pillars to toast your opponent's hand shield a moment ahead of landing slower heavy damage. Learn how to hide extra primals in the reflected primals and time it correctly for extra damage. # Study how to land damage after breaking a hand shield, how to break the shield reliably, and how to efficiently use ember attacks for both breaking shields and landing damage. Watch for opportunities to break the shield just ahead of landing artifact damage or other heavies. # Discover or design combo attacks, and learn to keep up the pressure from primals even while your other attacks are taking effect. # Refine your aim and speed control on primals. # Refine your hand shield understanding for every combination of classes and attacks. # Work on center-blocking practically all primals damage and reduce the incidental damage you get picking up embers or casting ember spells. Eliminate those moments of openings. # Use gaps in time to prepare quick shields (that you might not use) and ember spells (that you might not use) when they are appropriate to the battle in progress. Know how to cancel a casting and switch directions and when to do so. Use the time to do something useful. # Make sure you know how to deal with both left-handed and right-handed players. The patterns differ a bit. # Check out past tournament videos and recent streams to discover more techniques, combos, and things you didn't realize were possible. Note when the video was published as the game might be played on an older version and then see how those same players changed tactics or choices at later times and may have gotten better or worse. # Start to identify what combos produce guaranteed damage that your opponent can't instantly squirm out of. # Know when you're leaving yourself open to attacks. Notice when your attention gets too involved in your attack pattern and makes you miss a cue that you're going to need to defend. Don't let your confidence make you blind to what's actually happening.
