The old thread was a travesty, so yeah this is the new one. Be sure to tag me to ensure I see combos!

xx means cancel into for some of the combos. if you need clarification just ask the person.
As a Basic Rule for combos:

ESCRIMA:
COMBO STARTERxxDF2 F/B+3 J2 (or j3 if b3 connects, possible but strict timing that requires a small forward input after DF+2) COMBO STRINGxxSPECIAL

into the numerical notation this for example becomes:
113xxdf2 f3 j3 f213xx4xxstaffspin

STAFF:
COMBO STARTERxxB+3 J2 J2 1xxDB3/BF3

so in the numerical notation this is now:
1f1xxMBdb2 b3 j2 j2 1xxdb3

Basic Midscreen Combos:
ESCRIMA
f213xxdf2 f3 f2 f213xx4xxdb3
f213xxdf2 f3 forward dash 113xxdb2 (hold for a bit to create ground spark oki)

b2 3xxdf2~from here you have two options:
j3 wingdings for direct damage and create space

or b2xxdb2 to create the ground spark oki
other options to do the ground spark oki after the b2 3xxdf2:
forward dash 113xxdb2 (hold for a bit)


STAFF
1f1xxMBdb2 b3 j2 j2 1xxdb3/bf3
2 b3 j2 j2 1xxdb3/bf3

of an air to air j1/j2/j3:
1xxMB db2 b3 bf3

BACKGROUND BOUNCE CANCEL COMBOS
ESCRIMA:
113 f2xxinteractable b3 j3xx slight delay)db1
F213/113/d12xxdf2 j2 3xxinteractable b3 j22 nj3xxdb1

CORNER COMBOS
ESCRIMA:
b2 113 112xxdf2 113
b2 d12 112 f213xxdf2 113


STAFF:
2 2 1 1 1 D2xxMB db2 D2xxdb3
2 2 1 1 1f1xxMB db2 (if the opponent does not wakeup attack the second part of the ground spark will hit, either leaving you at +frames if they block or a full combo if they get hit)

Options after DB2 MB

Optimal(?):

Nj 2, B3, J2, J2, 1 xx (DB3/BF3)

Nj 2, B3, J2, 3, 1 xx (DB3/BF3)

Others:

B3, J2, J2 1 xx (DB3/BF3)

Meterless BNB's in escrima usually look like this:

Starter

113 F213 D12 etc ~Escrima Fury F3 J3 F213~4~Staff Spin

113 = 30%

D12 = 29%

F213 = 33%

I prefer F213 MB Efury, B3, J3, land Efury, b2 xx Ground Spark.

37%, plus another 8% if they get hit by the Ground Spark.
The one I posted does 36% and its low execution do to the lack of j3 land escrima.

So for any other NW noobs out there... This could be a good choice.

j2, 2, B3, UB2, 3, D2, 4, df2, d2, df2, 113 (41%)

Do your J3 late and buffer escrima fury while in the air. Less execution all around, since there's less moves.

Buffering EF is how my first combo above works as well, apologies for not answering sooner.

Truth, justice and the American way.
is MB b3 and f3 good for combos? how much damage would we be eeking out by doing

f213 x4xdb2 MB j2 b3MB j2 j2 1 db3

I'm about to fall asleep. Is why I ask.

lol ok so i was toying around with the corner and came up "i think? someone might have already discovered this " a cool looking combo... its not pratical but looks cool and it has the mix up ending with a total of 41% 1 bar

J2 (into the corner crossing up your opponent) MB flipkick , J3 ( hit him low to the ground ) and then just do 1,1,2. 3 times in sequence... it looks really cool to just do 3 in a row, you can switch the last 1,1,2 for a 1,1,3 just cause of the set up afterwards... but yeah its not that pratical in my opinion but looks cool and its flashy XD... obviously theres a lot more optimized stuff to do instead of this

Can one of you guys give me any tips on landing B3 in this combo?

F213xxDF2-B3

I know I'm suppose to step slightly forward before the b3, but Idk when exactly to step forward.

hmmm your not supposed to do B3 on raw DF2 aka Escrima Fury... if you want a B3 combo you have to MB the Escrima fury from there its pretty easy the juggle gives you plenty of time to do it...

But the B3 can hit, cause I landed it a few times, I just don't know the proper timing for it, and I just wanna learn it for some good meterless damage

its very very specific i know it can land, but honestly there are better ways to get your damage and even set ups afterwards than that complicated B3
