i've seen lots of other people use the helix halberd & mastadon halberd powerstance combo, but it won't let me activate powerstance with those weapons, regardless of which is left or right... i had 50str/50dex and i thought powerstance requirements were 1.5x each, so it should have been working... but it wasn't so i added 2str just to make it 2x each and still it's not working... just uses the left-handed wep 2h instead of powerstance when i try. why's it doing this? was this powerstance combo removed from the game or something???

They patched out the ability to PS the helix with anything but itself I believe a few patches ago and also slowed down its PS poke animation.

You can still powerstance Rapiers with Helix, and Daggers, though I have no idea why you would want to aside from the Parry... in which case you would be better off with 2 rapiers for speed.

It was a s*** scrub tactic anyway. Don't go down that road.
