    Admittedly it's early in the morning, but I'm not seeing how prioritising mending over restoration gets you standing faster, especially if they're using epteth with the leg breaks.
  • ArmaliArmali Posts: 833Member, Secret Squirrel ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    The important thing here is that heartseed takes so long to kill that they need to time it on a resto application. It doesn't matter if you apply mending after the first resto finishes because they need to wait until the second resto to heartseed in the first place. If they heartseed on the mending, you just cure it trivially.

    Ok, so you two were talking about two different - but related - things. Your comment made no sense in the context of "how to stand up in time to shield to avoid heartseed into torso break" (i.e. Ryzeth's post), but makes perfect sense in the context of "how to avoid heartseed".
  • ArmaliArmali Posts: 833Member, Secret Squirrel ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    It applies to both. Ryzeth's calculation assumes that you need an additional mending application before you can stand, which means the Sylvan can break you while prone. I'm saying, no, you don't need to, you can take care of the excess mending application before restoring the other leg, so that when it finishes, you can stand immediately.

    Do I need to add epseth envenoming to my thornrend alias as well? As if prone tracking wasn't enough! (I actually do already have prone tracking, as shown very prettily on my prompt)

    It lets you stand faster relative to the heartseed since the heartseed comes after resto no matter what.

    Leg break/apply
    Leg break
    Apply mending
    Apply resto
    Heartseed
    Apply mending/stand (before torso break)

    Vs Ryzeth's


    Leg break/apply
    Leg break
    Apply resto
    Heartseed
    Apply mending (still one crippled leg)
    Torso break before stand

    So my implication was correct. That's all we need to gather from the past page. Not that this is new, pretty there's a thread with the same conclusion from like 2 years featuring Ernam. Long may he rest.

    Parry comes from the french verb "parer", which means to block.

    Very nice colors on the prompt. Which system you are using, or bespoke?

    I really dig your prompt and highlights too, though my those timestamps are distracting.

    As curious as Dochitha here :)

    I got an edited version of wundersys that's like 8 months out of date... Been working through all the classleads to bring it properly up to date. Also further edited it a ton to match what I want/like.

    Learn to fight in dragon. I'd never go up against a skilled, artied DWB in lesser. Even if you could pressure them from getting eight mo., unless you're super tanky they could go for a low momentum mangle lock.

    If you HAVE to fight in lesser, I'd probably stick with degen to maximize hinder from clumsiness/weariness/paralysis. Stick clumsiness/weariness, timeloop-degen for para/loop until one sticks, then curare leach or loop leach until you get the shadow. Swap back to degen at this point, use HI if you have it to time a mutilate.

    Doesn't even require a skilled dwb if they can mangle like that, unless you can block them from getting 3 momentum at any point.

    I'm still annoyed my classlead on that got approved and then never went anywhere.

    That's what happens when a fully level 3 artied person goes up against an unartied low health person. Not the most fun thing, but it's a damage class - you're gonna have a bad time if you're lower level/con against massively artied people geared for strength.

    5.2k health died in 7 hits.

    Dont feel bad, 7.2k health I die in 8-9.

    I think the break > mangle on next whirl has to go. It's way too much prone time for a class that already has the most guaranteed kill sequence in the game.

    Low health, kek. The guy got mangled in 4 hits with over 5k health. That's obscene.

    I got dragon since then. I still have no defensive artefacts though, besides a SoA now.

    All specced into con, to try to survive silliness like this, but to no avail :dissapointed:

    You need to step up your max health bug exploit game.

    Does gem of negation still cure all states of limb damage including prior to the limb break itself? Asking for a friend
  • AtalkezAtalkez Posts: 4,045Member, Secret Squirrel @@ - Legendary Achaean
    I don't believe so, but unsure. Could have abused reflect to force his first hit to miss, which would have let you stand before the mangle came in.

    DWB is probably hard to balance, the lack of hinder (which gets you destroyed by a majority of momentum classes if you get poor rng) is compensated for by the playstyle being skewed heavily towards fast breaks and damage, which destroys non-artied people harder than most classes otherwise would.

    I mean, if you were to place the two extremes against each other - a heavily artied occie with auto-follow vs an artied DWB, I think the occie would win 80% of the time because of clumsiness/lethargy/hierophant hecate speed/DWB momentum necessity but if the occie wasn't artied, it's a different story. It's a P2W problem

    Could all of DWB use a rework? It was my least favourite during the design process and after release it's the most uninspired and least creative/interesting Knight Spec imo. Maybe back to the drawing board

    Apostate VS Runewarden
    Very long fight with him constantly running around and seemingly me unable to stop him from mount jumping over runewarden stone walls into runes over and over and over again as my stack progressed. Any tips on how to combat this? Thanks
