Since PhantomX, who posted quite a few Lancer's pictures up, likes Rider, I'm going in extra depthl ^^
Quick to initiate. Good to begin a pressured attack.
Even faster than normal A, though it's range is shorter. Low attack.
Can hit those who're dodging, but it's not recommended to use this move since it's range is too ridiculasly short.
Slow. Use it when trying to break opponent's guard.
Slides forward a bit while kicking. Useful if you want to shorten the distance between you and your opponent.
Jump and kick.
Side kick. Usually used in a combo due to the slow movement.
Slash twice with her 'nail'. Can even hit those who are dodging.
Jump kick. Slow.
Kick and send opponent upwards. The beginning of rider's aireal combo.
dash forward and kick. Does not have recovery even when blocked. Use this move as a follow up after a guard break.
Jump forward and kick. Does not have recovery even when blocked, though no combo involving this move is found.
Dash forward and kick upwards. costs 1 mana.
Jump up and throws opponent onto ground with legs. Range increases as it goes down the list. Last one costs 1 mana.
Throws out chain to grab and swing opponent around. Very long ranged. Great move to use. Careful at close range as recovery time is long(for a fast character like rider, it is very long)
Breaker Gorgon. Slows down opponent movement.
Blood Fort Andromeda. Recovers your health while draining your opponents.
Bellerophon. Unblockable. Though a lot of Rider's combo depends on mana so it's rare that her mana stocks up that much.
Speed is Rider's greatest advantage. As the fastest character in the game Rider can always charge forward, unleash a couple hits and combo and leave the scene before it gets too sticky. Use the A button more often as Rider. A good Rider user can attack a guarding character non-stop until their guard guage is drained unless they're facing Archer.
Expert's commnets: Be mentally prepared when using Rider. Because most of her moves lack damage along with her low hp, a single mistake might result in a universal come back for your opponent.
A couple demonstrations of Caster's combo in action has been uploaded. look for rider 1.rar and rider 2.rar from the link provided at the end of this post
next up: Caster

I'll take a break here today.
