Any tips on bullet management?
> Always make sure you keep a close eye on how many bullets you have left at any given time
> Try and use your bullets defensively more than offensively; limiting your bullet usage to protecting you while you recharge your Orgia gauge or to shut down approaches as opposed to full screen attacks
> Opt for combos that use less or no bullets where possible
> Use 2B as your go-to when using bullets; it covers a large area, recovers quickly and only consumes eight bullets which makes it really useful for a lot of things
As long as you don't go all out spamming attacks that consume bullets all the time, you should hardly ever run out of bullets.
Are there any practical uses for Athena's Ds? It seems to me like a horrible counter. Most of them have terrible start up and recovery, and even if the counter gets triggered, you can react and block it. She just sits there for too long and ends up getting hit anyways.
And I think I've seen attacks go straight through it even when it's active as well and go on and hit Aigis and/or Athena. =(
Same question for 2C.

D's are supposed to be used as a defensive mechanism to buy time for your Orgia bar to refill
I've been trying to fit 5D into my offensive game plan a bit, it'd be great for putting out on oki and to cover air to ground pokes except for the part where Athena gets owned if the poke hits you along with the guard point.
You can still put it out to advance with against people trying to zone you out a bit, but don't rely solely on it.

I've also seen some Aigis players do 5D or 2D as okizeme, in case the opp does something.
You can set up j2D during j2B and get more frame advantage in some combos. During block strings outside of Orgia mode, 5C>2D is pretty safe.
You can also set 2D or j.2D off of sweep and sweep -> 22B respectively. If the opponent has an uppercut type furious action it'll get eaten up by Athena and they'll get punished by the spear, otherwise you can just continue pressure
