Up rock incoming, ETA 5 minutes
Dude I've been having that happen to me a lot and I thought it was a random glitch but it seems you are right. When you cancel into Soul Vessal you get the heal even if the jar isn't out. It wasn't always like this, right?Hi!
I "discovered" (at least never saw it) something labbing last week Spellmaster variation.
If you use the soul vessel (DB2) in a combo, you just heal instead of releasing the vessel.
I don't think it's very useful, coz the recovery is very long, but I think it's interesting....
It doesn't seem to be very useful, although you can probably get a safe heal in most matchups by ending a KB combo with something like 1, 1, 4~DB2 for around 200 damage and a 40 hp heal. Or since you can't get any good damage from an U2, you could do the same and get 130 damage with a 40 hp heal. It leaves you minus enough that some characters will have an easy punish but it could be usable.
I wonder if it's just a bug though.
