Would it be possible to finish vet Trials without using animation cancelling?

Would it be possible to deal enough DPS on time (to bosses that have this mechanic) if we had to wait for heavy and light attacks to fully complete the animation, wait for every skill to finish too and also wait to weapon-swap?

What do you think guys?

Thank you.

    There are a few builds which use a heavy attack between each ability and it really isn't much animation cancelling besides weapon swap cancelling

    I saw some guy do an arena naked with one skill slotted - and wasn't doing any animation cancelling. So, I would say: Definitely yes.

    Yeah I think you can. Builds that use a lot of heavy attacks are kinda almost doing it.

    But why would you? Just weave attacks, combat feels more fluent and fun that way too.

    What exactly are you worried about? "Animation cancelling" is just a scary term for "non-clunky combat". Besides, the vast majority of skills you use won't be "cancelled", but will play their full animations.

    The dps difference between weaving light attacks and not that it will make a lot of difference to the ability to complete content. It's just going to be a bit slower.

    If you can complete vMA without animation cancelling you can do any vet-content as well (To directly answer OP´s question= yes you can)


    Take a look at this (not my video)
