Ok so this is something I’ve never been to accurate on as far as DP’s go. I’m trying to get in habit of AA’ing with Gekiro instead of c.hp mantis and c.hk crane.
However I never really understood which one is the best to use. lk has the quickest startup, 5 frames but the hitbox is kind of lower, yet hk is 7 frames which is a lot less than I’m used to playing nothing but cammy and adon I could AA with their DP’s pretty well.
So I’m kind of torn between either choosing, quicker startup but low hitbox vs slower startup but high hitbox and more damage. And with only 4 frames of invincibility it seems hk will get a lot of trades in that 3 frames of inactivity.
Ok so I may have answered my own question, but I just sat in training mode for a second and it really feels like EX gekiro has a lot more invincibility than the frame data says because it was the only one I could do consistently without trading hits. Unless it was a far jump then lk seems to work best because of its weird low hitbox. But otherwise it seems like ex is the only way to go if I’m AA’ing with gekiro. Everything else seemed to trade 90% of the time.
I’d still like any tips if anyone has had better experiences with gekiro as an AA.
