That's a bit narrow.  'IF' you survived that pike critical, you would be in a better position to parry in the future as you may have learned some valuable lessons.


Sorta like the Germans learning the tank game, they took a bit of a hit from Allied tanks in WWI, but they employed the lessons w/ WWII tanks, not other WWI tanks (and there was a WORLD of difference between tanks in those 30 years).


My best,

I'd imagine that you'd need to have the corresponding skill! For example, if you get criticalled by a pikeman, but you only know how to use a sword, the experience won't mean much to you - from a learning perspective, that is.

*nods* That is certainly a worthwhile extension that follows the
"ingrained in memory" principle.
