Shang Tsung
04/23/2003 10:58 AM EDT
Ok, I have only recently bought MK:DA (only recently bought a GC with Metroid Prime, Zelda and MK:DA ;) ). I've been having fun so far, mainly just doing konquest to learn all the characters. Shang Tsung has been my favorite character in every MK (I barely played 4, so I didnt really miss him there). I still love him in this one.

Now my question is, does anyone have some good strats for him? I've been reading through the sticky high level gameplay post, but it's extremely long and there doesnt seem to be a search funcion on these boards, so it's very hard to find all the info. I've seen some great FAQs for other characters, and learned a great deal just from reading general tips. I would still appreciate it if anyone has some good info on Shang Tsung tho.

Things like what good combo's are, what exactly it means he has high priority (I *think* it means that he can easily get hits in before the enemy). So far I've been messing with the juggle mentioned in the high tier gameplay post. (3,3,2,2~1,1,1,SS) I havent been able to find many useful combo's in the snake style, and it doesnt seem to have a popup attack. :/

Last question, does Shang Tsung have any mix up combo's that change between high and low attacks to get through blocking? (Something I've also seen mentioned before)

I'm sorry if these are stupid "newbie" questions or have already been asked a million times before. I would greatly appreciate any info.

Yah, there's some stuff in the "High Level Gameplay" thread. Funny, how there needs to be a thread named that grin. Anywho, shang is all about ss cancel. Konqrr has a vid that he made to demonstrate it. I could tell you to just look in another thread to find info on it, but a monkey can do it; sooooo.....to ss cancel simply side step, block, side step, blcok, ect. In snake, btw. Nothing more than a semi quick rythm. In the high level forum, just do a word search - ctrl+f - for shang on each page Peace and love ya'll.
