I will agree with them being slower and that the kill conditions are more telegraphed. That said, though, the telegraph doesn't help any since there isn't a realistic curing option at any point versus either of the classes, imo.
Don't twist my words to push an agenda. I got beaten because I wasn't careful and likely would've been beaten again if I was less careful, Likewise, the serpent I was fighting had no excuse for dying, because my setups were 100% escapable.
I'm not sure how much you can spam vodun bind, but if the writhe time is just ropes, that's not really a huge breather, unless the shaman really really knows the occultist's balance and is able to match up with it well
You can't hangedman twice in a row, so I'm not sure I buy that one.
Clumsiness was toned down quite a lot, recently. When I tested the DWC change, the miss rate hovered at around 12% vs. an 11-dex, trans avo, unmounted target, in 250 attacks (125 DSLs).
I don't think it's as big of an issue as you think, though I'm not sure why we went with a solution that only helps people with swiftmount. Seems odd.
It's not an issue specific to one strategy, is the trouble. All shikudo paths need affliction pressure, and this is a heavy nerf to the pressure you can output in one of your core forms for every strategy.In shikudo, different afflictions are tied to abilities that can only target certain limbs, unlike other classes. If there's only a 50% chance of hitting the arms due to a random arm parry, then there's a 50% chance of losing hits whenever the monk wants to use half of rain's small affliction pool. Being dynamic can't fix that.
What was the classleads with tattoos all about? I don't understand that one at all.
