With Sienna’s dagger, it’s obvious that the 2nd charged attack is the primary anti-armor function. Right now, it’s a bit awkward to use it for this purpose as you have to use the first charged attack, which is very much cleave focused and not great against armor, in order to get to it. To smooth out gameplay and add another combo, I propose making dagger work similarly to Sienna’s mace. For those who don’t know, Sienna’s mace has a heavy chain that starts with an overhead before turning into side-swings until you stop attacking. You can, however, use the block attack (or light attacks, though I’m not including those in this suggestion) to bypass the overhead swing and get into the cleave combo faster. I think this would work well if applied to dagger, where chaining its push attack into its charged attack would skip the first charged attack and proceed directly to the second one.
Just an idea that I had while playing with dagger that I think would make it feel better in general. All thoughts appreciated!
