While testing various timings and attacks for Does Leixia's weapon clash get through instead of bouncing back? I've found that not all attacks that occur at the same time will clash. This is obvious when I think about it, but it has me wondering - what triggers a weapon clash?

Do the two attacks have to be the same alignment (low, mid, high)? Do they need to be the same type of attack (i.e. will an A clash a B, or a A+B clash a B+K)? How does attack damage factor in? What makes a character "reel" after a weapon clash, instead of continuing an attack?

  • On a side note: I remember from older soul calibur games that the vertical slash would always beat out the horizontal slash in a weapon clash. I'm not sure if that's still the same. – Maxx Feb 20 '12 at 17:11
