That rare Adamantoise linkstrike is rare

It was asked in a comment but I’m going to reply to it here:

  • If possible, can you get an epic shot(s) of the Bros when they do the link strike? Like when they teleport to the top of the mountain, when Noctis points his sword, when they all jump off, and when theyโ€™re just about to hit the turtle.

I’ve tried to do this before, because I think it’d be awesome to Ansel, too, but the thing is, it’s quite rare to get the block chance against Adamantoise. You can stand and run around near/under his head for an hour and never get it to happen. I have no idea if there’s some special trick to it, but I think it simply has a rare chance to proc – a special easter-egg type thing. Even harder/more rare than that one block/parry against iron giant’s where Noct will run up the demon’s sword edge.

So one day it might happen in the first 5 minutes by sheer luck…but most of the time it just isn’t going to occur. While the big turtle doesn’t do much damage against high level bro’s, standing under its chin for hours gets pretty dull. And to get a lot of shots from it I’d have to try to make it proc more than once. >.>

I’ll keep trying now and then. Maybe I’ll get lucky at some point.
