Hello and welcome to another for honor breakdown video, today we’re gonna be looking at the Nobushi hero Class. The nobushi belongs to the samurai, and is officially my worst nightmare I can’t win against this class You are also able to play but not customise the nobushi from the start, if you wish to customise it will cost steel to unlock. Classed as a hybrid hero, it focuses on long range attacks and is able to retreat rapidly. Time to check out the nobushi feats. Every hero has four tiers of feats available to them, each tier has 3 abilities that can either be passive or activated by the directional pad. You will have to forgive if some of the icons display incorrectly, beta is beta after all. Remember that feats unlock in tiers, once a tier is fully unlocked you move on to the next. The first tier of feats has 3 passives The first feat is Iron lungs, allowing you to sprint even when you’ve run out of stamina, perfect for escaping. The 2nd feat is Speed revive, allowing you to revive fallen teammates faster.
The 3rd and final feat in tier 1 is Body Count, a passive that allows you to gain health and stamina when your hero kills AI soldiers. The second tier of feats has 2 active and 1 passive ability The 1st feat is arrow strike, allowing you to call down Arial strike for moderate damage over an area. The 2nd feat is smoke bomb, allowing you to throw a smoke bomb in an area that causes opponents to be enable to use guard lock. The 3rd and final feat in tier 2 is revenge attacks, this passively causes your attacks to fill the revenge meter. The third tier of feats has 3 active abilities. The 1st feat is Blissful rest, whilst active this rapidly restores you to full health. The 2nd feat is Long bow, allowing you to fire an arrow from a long bow for moderate damage, this can be used to kill fleeing targets or low health enemies at a distance. The 3rd and final feat in tier 3 is Sharpen blade, whilst active this causes attacks to place a damage over time debuff on the enemy. The 4th and final tier of feats has 3 active abilities.
The 1st feat is stalwart banner, this causes your hero to place a banner that allows nearby allies to continuously regenerate health. The 2nd feat is arrow storm, allowing you to call in an aerial attack that deals medium damage in multiple small areas. The 3rd and final feat is Fire trap, allows you to place a trap that explodes on activation causing the area to set on fire. Time to check out the nobushi hero specific traits. Renown and revenge mode appear to be available to all classes. Way of the shark causes extra damage when hitting someone effected by a bleed Hidden stance, on startup has a dodge property, basic attacks can be cancelled into the hidden stance and can also be followed up by attacks, kicks or dodges. More on this in a moment. Cancel attack recover allows attacks to be followed up by hidden stance, vipers retreat or a kick.
Kicks can also be followed up with a hidden stance or cobra strike. Light attack combo causes the third chained light attack to be a guaranteed hit if the 2nd attack landed. Side slashes hits the opposite direction of the dodge and can be followed up with a hidden stance, vipers retreat, kick or dodge. Zone attacks can be cancelled after its first attack by pressing B These will make more sense with the examples so lets check them out. The nobushi it’s a zoner character and focuses on keeping its distance whilst constantly annoying attackers. Seriously, you have no idea…. The nobushi has 3 attack chains Poke the nest, 3 light attacks in a row Hiss and bite, a light attack followed by a heavy attack And Death rattle, two heavy attacks in a row When surrounded press light and heavy attack to perform a zone attack Whilst sprinting press light attack to perform the slithering thrust, this attack inflicts a bleed Whilst sprinting press heavy attack to perform the coiling slash Move backwards and press light attack to maintain distance and inflict bleed Press x after a light or heavy attack to kick When guard locked, dodge and press light attack to perform the cobra strike, this also inflicts bleed When guard locked, dodge to the side and press heavy attack to execute the sidewinder form Hold down the right stick to didge and go into hidden stance, this hides your guard direction from the opponent Dodge after blocking to maintain distance Remember that your attacks can cause extra damage if the enemy has a bleed on them, try keep a bleed up at all times Using a Light attack after knocking an enemy backwards also inflicts bleed and creates distance.
You can attack from the hidden stance mode with any second attack of a chain Don’t forget to Surprise your enemies with a kick to the face The nobushi is unable to block during hidden stance, but can still dodge You can cancel the startup of any basic attacks into the hidden stance mode You can also cancel the recovery of your attacks into the hidden stance Or if you’d prefer, you can cancel the recovery of you attacks into kicks Additionally you can cancel the recovery of your attacks into a vipers retreat causing a bleed and creating some distance You can also cancel into hidden stance from kicks Or cancel from a kick into the cobra strike We’re not done yet, you can cancel the recovery of a cobra trike or vipers retreat into hidden stances too Or cancel from cobra strikes or vipers retreats into dodges Or cancel into my channel for more for honor videos, see you on the battle field!.
