HOW TO BURST? The 4.3 patch brought accolades - generous goodies given for various accomplishments. In the Combat section, there are tallies for bursts, throw breaks, taunts, outtakes, and intercepts. Within less than a week, most of them are filled 100/100, except for bursts, frozen at 0/100. Is the counter bugged? Am I doing something wrong? Turns out there is a proper way to burst! POP QUIZ What is a recognizable way to burst? A) Burst away from the enemy. It is like a taunt, right? B) Include a burst in a combo. Air juggle and before they land, smack 'em with a burst. C) Let the enemy hit you and before they can launch you from the ground, burst to interrupt their combo D) Burst after a blockbuster to stack debuffs Answer: C Accolades only accept bursts used in a defensive action, specifically a ground combo (you can't burst in the air!). Even if they apply hex or armor break or whatever, when you use it as a part of an attack, it won't count unless you are stopping them from hitting you. Burst Rules (as of now) Bursts only work on any non-blockbuster attack on the ground. So get out there and get punched in the face! Counter to common sense, intentionally get hit so you can then burst. It is the only way to fill that burst score. Any bursting tips to add?
