    avoiding dying to a blademaster is much easier than avoiding death vs a monk/apostate/serpent. Blademasters do have a lot of leeway for error, but literally the only issue i have against blademasters is the ridiculous WP drain.

    Limb counting as blademaster compared to monk/dragon/forestal is p. difficult if you are fighting someone who is smart, as is getting them down.

    Have to disagree with you there. No matter how good your system is or how much passive healing you have or how much you touch shield it wont make a difference against a standard and easily repeatable and quick double leg to prone setup from a blademaster which is not momentum based to achieve its goal. Also unlike monks they have a guaranteed dismount and prone ability as striking doesnt miss, coupled with the fact that your truefavour/runes/armour/tumble behind icewall wont stop their ability to stack up bleeding to required levels thanks to evade/leap etc. Big difference unless you are implying the burst lock by apostate/serpent which is rather easily stopped by paying attention and touching shield/curseward/lucky rebounding forcing them to restart or just by switching a priority or having a good curing system.

    Carmain is worst case, having Robes of Magi, high mana pool, and Gravehands to prevent the leap high/brokenstar or instant chase.

    The other 90% gets helplessly smeared.

    I guess so. I find it easier to survive against mizik than i do against agathon or lothiac. I hate fighting magi or monk.

    are you still apo?  What's hard about non-Ashuran monks?

    or did you trade in arties?

    Slightly artied and fairly mediocre BM kill me easier than omni-artied and highly skilled ashuran monk.

    I'd say I'm probably doing something wrong tho.

    or it's that 250ms handicap. The impale spam change did help quite a bit.

    Can someone please explain to me the relative merit of PommelStrike vs ImpaleSlash? It's one of those things I still can't get my head around; sorry, I know it's BM 101...

    What do you mean by PommelStrike vs ImpaleSlash? I thought they served different purposes, not to mention ImpaleSlash requires the target to be impaled anyway.
  • SylvanceSylvance Posts: 1,477Member ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand Achaean
    Yep, brainfail. Let me try again:

    Pommel is very nice for 1 v 1 setups whilst balancslash can be very useful in group combat. I also think balanceslash does more damage and can be infused while pommel stuns and does less damage. I know me and mizik whored balanceslashon someone and it worked a treat. Pommel can be used to gain the upper hand on herb balance for some interesting advantages.

    @eld if I dont have wings, hermit, universe, astralform, blackwind or puppet travel or earrings, its very hard to run from a bladmaster who knows what they are doing
