Quick question: What is the timing on the headsplitter (?) combo after a parry. It goes Parry, grab then light attack and if done right, his shield does a flaming counter attack followed by a light stab. I can't seem to nail the whole combo on account of the timing.

You need to Parry an Attack and at nearly the same time use guardbreak to use your shiled... btw best follow up is a side heavy after this combo (if the enemy dont have his guard in the same direction)

Ahh nice, thank you. I noticed the grab had to be super fast afterwards, but I couldn't get the final part of the combo. However, since you're saying I should go for a side heavy, I can try it though I have to ask....wouldn't it be faster to do a Top heavy? You know...faster frames and all.

The shield bash combo includes a heavy that comes from the warlord's left side. If your opponent has his/her guard to the right, you may want to follow the bash with a GB and overhead heavy. I usually avoid the headsplitter leap/combo unless my opponent is exhausted and on the ground. It's too easy to parry.

Side heavy does more damage.
Right? Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.
