It seems to loop counter attacks, causing my spearman to die whenenver I use the shortspears. Its like there is a counterattack that does no damage whenever the spearguy takes damage, and it just causes a loop until the spearman misses on one of his imaginary "counters. So it goes, spearman attack, take damage from candle cloak, fake counter (doing nothing), take damage from candle cloak, fake counter, take damage from candlecloak... etc. etc.
Thought this should be mentioned!
