    BTW instant overhead j.A xx v-slasher works. Input as qcf~u/f+A,hcb+P.

    How do you do her lvl 2 V-Slasher? the v-slasher needs to be done in the air but the CC is on on the ground.

    I suppose you would do the ground shortcut: qcf~uf~hcb+P DM. I'll need to test it.

    You could also juggle the opp in the air and probably just do it then.

    isn't it funny that capcom put a mechanic called focus into a game designed for people with ADD

    sugarboy at CX says if you want to do a level 2 V-Slasher during a CC, you just need to input the standard motion qcf,hcb+P and Leona will do a short hop back before doing the DM. No need to jump for yourself.

    !

    N+B, D+B, D+A, U+C.

    N+B hits low(mind games yay!! xD), and U+C turns into moon slasher. Decent fast combo.
    Upon your enemy's wake up, if timed correctly, the opponent MUST either block, Back+CD, or eat it.
    Great with low/high/grab mix-ups.:smokin:

    Man I wish I would have read through this thread more carefully before playing yesterday. I couldn't figure out the Grand Saber dash. It was like... run... ok, where's the attack? I played against a fireball spamming Robert and the fake out would have really taken his game apart.

    OK based on those scans that got posted up, Leona's best CC goes something like this:

    6B, Moon Slasher x3 (!), V-Slasher

    Enjoy.

    was able to practice this at the KoFXII tounrie/party. noticed that the moon slasher have to be the A version cause the C version will end the CC mode. Couldnt connect the V-Slasher though. Maybe you have to TK it?

    That's only for the instant DM after the CC (you know, the one with the gold flash). I'm pretty sure if you wanna do it at the end of a CC combo you will need to jump into it thus TK motion is the way to go.

    Tried out more Leona today.

    Leona's fwd+C is actually really good!

    If you hit them with that move and you end up close, you can hit them with a combo since they are stunned for a second and it counts as a combo :tup:

    So it was something like this
    f+C, cr.C, f+B, qcb+C or Super

    Leona's super motion qcf, hcb ub+P is really good as an anti air from the ground :bgrin:

    Leona is a really solid character in XII, her jump attacks aren't as great like they used to be in the past KOF's, but she is still pretty awesome.

    well if she can't be as good going in high, maybe sneaking in low.

    her triple moonslice CC setup looks fun since it's easy to finish with the super.

    Are you SURE you comboed d+C after f+C?

    I know you can combo f+C from her b,f+A move.

    I would like to learn Leona this time.

    I only have KOFXI at the moment and she's not in that one....so yeah.....

    jumping D, standing A, standing C (or forward C?), Grand Saber?

    That's Jump D -> C -> CD -> grand saber

    will her super still work if you just stop at back instead of up/back? I have trouble with up angled motions.

    which is why I prefer HD Remix Cammy's hooligan special over classic ST/SFIV Cammy's hooligan.

    If I can't get Leona's super to work when I want, I might not be able to use her in my team if the up/back motion is too strict or I can't get register that final position of the motion.

    No way. Her V-Slasher DM is and always has been an AIR DM.

    The Upback press is just an extra trick of the trade, though. You still have all of the rest of Leona's usual skills to work with, the the ability to combo into DM from c.C->f+a. Didn't someone also mention you can combo into DM from A quick Hop A?

    In the corner: Jump C, C, CD xx B.Baltic Launcher, CD xx C.Moon Slasher. 405 damage o_O.

    I'm not really a KOF player, but it seems like Moon Slasher has a sweet-spot. If you don't get it (and I haven't been able to do it since I noticed the sweet spot existed, lol), it'll do 378 damage.

    Off a CC in corner:
    lp Moon Slasher(x3), hp Moon Slasher(x2) 605 Damage
    You have to input the lp Slashers as quickly as possible or the first hp Slasher doesn't bounce them high enough to combo after.
    You can also Super after the first hp Slasher.

    The one I do is lp Moon Slasher (x4), CD xx lp Moon Slasher.
    Getting the CD to combo after the last Moon Slash is pretty hard, same goes for getting the Moon Slash after it.

    Has any1 found any shenanigans with back run? Besides back run to immediate slash.

    I still haven't gotten 605 damage off that combo...but if you do

    lp moon slasher x2, hp moon slasher, cd, hp moonslasher it does like 515 or something.. (im guessing you meant 505 and not 605

    or if you finish with super instead of cd hp moon slasher it does like 565...

    Midscreen the best I can find is

    CC f+b xx qcb+hp, f+b, f+b Hp slasher (360ish, or super 460ish)

    there is a trick to f+b cancel int qcb+hp you need to make sure you actually do the f+B immediately with none of the auto run inbetween so it actually retains its ability to cancel as if you had canceled into it...

    CC lp moon, hp moon, lp moon, hp moon, hp moon

    633 damage >.>

    outside corner I was doing
    lp moon, f.C, lp. moon, run s.C, hp moon, hp moon for like 460 ish damage?
  • FullMetalRossFullMetalRoss That Hurt! Liar... Joined: Posts: 3,860 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    wow really on that first one, tight, Im totally going to try that out tomorrow moon slasher cc does soooo much..


    using f.c is a really good idea I should try that though instead of run c hp moon you might be able to do running x-caliber *obviously you'd run jump* then hp moon for a bit more damage.

    x-calibur tends to gimp the damage and end the CC...which since there's a bit of recovery on it, I don' think you can get a moon slasher off after

    what I WANT to work is
    lp moon, f.C, lp moon, grand saber, moon slasher, moon slasher...but they seem to land too soon for the grand saber :(

    also, I forgot to add the last moon slasher in my "anywhere" combo...just edited it in

    Midscreen I've gotten CC, LP Moon Slasher, f+C, HP Moon Slasher, f+C, super to work. Don't remember the damage though, and I'm not in a position to test it again right now. I wanna say it was like 537 dmg.

    I'm a little unsure about ending with moon slasher in the corner.
    Can't they roll right afterwords? If so I'm looking for a safer ender. Even if neither has frame advantage, I would hate to lose anti-wakeup options.

    i've got a quick noobie question about leona's CC combos.

    when you're doing her special moves, do you need to charge? i've tried just doing :d::u: + punch for moon slashers, but i always wind up dropping the opponent after the first moon slasher.

    if you don't need to charge, then i guess it's my timing.

    Her Moon Slasher and Blue Ball have different charge times. Like, Moon Slasher is count to 1. While Blue Ball is about 4. I'm not sure about her G Saber.

    I like how its easier to combo into Moon Slasher now, it was a bitch on the old KOF's for me to combo into her Moon Slasher!

    It still feels like she lost her awesome as hell HyperHop Jump Attack Pressure in this game!

    right when she nails her flip kick, u better be hitting the next button already have done the motion. Practice makes perfect.

    Also keep in mind u can't do the flip kick standalone, u have to combo into it. like from Standing C
