4.3.2: Combos -Lord Exar Kun - Feb 28 06:36am
Yellow has a wide variation of combos. There are two different combos:

-Swing combos
You can combine many moves, such as: left-swing, diagonal swing, forward-swing. You can combine these in various ways. Right and Left can be combined as well. You can chain 5 swings in a row (without specials). For example:

Left diagonal swing, right diagonal swing, forward swing.
Left, left diagonal swing, forward.

These moves can be very devastating in duels when performed correctly. Although, other people will say combos alone aren’t worth anything. TIMING is what’s important.

Advanced: Try combining these moves yourself. There are many, many combinations. However the trick of a combo is not only to do it, but to do it correctly. Slashing at the air instead of slicing your opponent will gain you nothing. It is all about timing, when to do what swing. Horizontal swings generally have a longer range, forward swings do the most damage but have a lower range plus it is harder to get a hit. Diagonal Swings are a combination of the two others.

-Spin combos
Spin combos are combos (as the name says) which make you spin around with your saber pointed outwards. Examples of spin combos:

Double spin: Forward+left, at the end of swing add backwards and release forward. (this requires a lot of practice to get it right).

Single spin: sideswing (left), at the end of swing add backwards.

These are the two basic spin combos. There are also easier ways to make a spin combo:

Left diagonal swing, then just release forward, but keep the rest pushed. This makes you perform a single spin, but in an easier way.

Advanced: You can also make a double spin by combining the easy way with the first described way:

Left diagonal swing, release forward, at the end of the spin, add backwards. You'll now make the first spin a lot faster.

You can do theese spins in the air as well by doing a tiny hop right before the spin. But it’s a chapter for itself and will be covered later.

Note from the editor: Many duelers advise you to not use any spins as they leave you quite open. Why do an attack when your saber is ¾ of the time away from your enemy?

Left Scissor, Right Scissor, Left Scissor, Right Scissor, Left Scissor, Right Scissor, etc.

To do scissors: - : (Easy Way)

Hold attack and walk.

Then press strafe left, and when you are halfway through the left scissor, press strafe right and you'll do a right scissor afterwards.

You can do that as many times as you wish. I.E:

Left Scissor, Right Scissor, Left Scissor, Right Scissor, Left Scissor, Right Scissor, etc.

After you have mastered this move, you may wish to ask another member to show you how to perform the Buzzsaw.

The force is within every cell of your body. All you have to do is realise it's there and harness its true power.

Ur, I think that comment belongs in the staff saber combo section. Maybe someone could move it?
Just a suggestion. :)
A wizard did it.

if playing JA, a great little move with a double bladed saber is to strafe left/right and spin your charecter with your mouse whilst attacking. The result is a sideways stab (after a spin which as said before can leave you vunerable) that usually goes past the best defences!
Size matters is how you wave your saber that counts
