One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important
Naisar said:@Cynlael Wow, that was peculiarly aggressive. I imagine that yes, if you pour enough credits into willpower regen Sylvan becomes much better. However, other classes could be spending those credits on things like blademaster bands, or fire pendants, or sip rings. Get my drift? And what's this about thornrend? It's a 3 second equilibrium attack, and has been I think forever. Quick-witted takes it to 2.7 seconds. You're going to see some variance because Achaea's not super precise about these things, but the average is definitely going to be sitting near to 2.7. In fact, I just ran out on my Sylvan alt (jackass) and got an average of 2.711 seconds equilibrium loss across 30 thornrends. Furthermore, a Sylvan's bashing power doesn't scale well into the late levels compared to other classes because thornrend is slow and a single attack. Crits are the deciding factor in high-level bashing, and those scale with speed & number of attacks.
Party right, party hard,
Sing and dance, perfect bard.
Buy a new rapier, get nerfed some more.
Getting Dragon is a state of mind. (Also, he was 26 when he was Jester level 93 and he hunted all the damn time, so it took him longer than if he was a Monk, say. Much less about the class than your mindset though imo)
Make wwk not target head, always hit and dismount, and then make rhk targeted at head (parry head), increase accuracy and keep paralysis.
I know about the handaxe tactics. It was pretty powerful then too but, again not widespread as not all monks wanted to or were able to shell out for that extra mile. It's just now that monks get it from the start we're seeing it enough to take note of how powerful it is. I'd agree that no class should really require learning weaponry to make use of it's given skills, however.. there should be more to it than just licking your keyboard and waiting to bbt or axk. Maybe I'm not seeing something here but, I don't really see any viable defense against this. I can't parry or dodge to offset the prep, and I can't reset my own limbs. I can shield but, i'm only delaying it then. It's like you really can't do anything to counter their prep which for me is the biggest issue.
