      I use this just for pure satisfaction of seeing enemies fly upwards and smashing on the ground. It can even slightly stagger crucible knights which usually are resistant to any sort of flinches.

        Pretty great with the pumpkin helmet. The low stance makes it easy for the helmet to absorb the attack on top of the stamp damage reduction.

          Works really well with Zwei. Send an opponent flying and then charging the R2, which a long poke. Will catch them as they come back up.
          Also this AoW is literal staggercity.

            This may be the most powerful skill for colossal weapons in PvE, or maybe just one of the most powerful skills on anything that can use it. I've tested the poise damage it does extensively, and the combos that open up with that.
            For example, against a Shunning Ground Omen, you can open with a stamp, which is almost guaranteed to connect because of hyper armor, then take a step or two forward and charge an R2. The R2 will catch them on wake up and stance break them immediately. After the riposte, start charging an R2 immediately, and you'll catch them on wake up again, stunning them for a charged R2 follow up, and another break/riposte. This combo can be cycled infinitely against just about any humanoid enemy. Tested with a Golem Halberd.
            Another fun note, is the poise damage on this skill is independent from the weapon type. I ran up to a troll with a warpick, and got a stance break in two stamps. Most skills are like this.

              I just found out: if you press heavy attack too fast, you wont get the damage + poise reduction, fromsoft please fix

                This skill has been my secret weapon while using heavy weapons. The L2 invulns you for a few frames and the follow-up R2 staggers almost everything.
