    Curse/jinx was the change that made shaman bashing top tier, you can stop mulling over if it's good or not, we tested the numbers on denizens to grab the comparison. The last great hunt results also speak for themself, we didn't need to spend nearly as long at it as Sarathai.

    i return you to Shikudo monk, imagine a stick fight image here.

    You know someone's trolling when they list Shaman as being one of the best, and above Bard/DWC at that.


    Shikudo is most definitely not above Bard.
    Shaman has a good enough crit rate... damage of the attack doesnt matter. Its all about speed of the hit. Doch has optimal crit rate, so i believe it. 

    Im still looking for mayan figurine arms!! Paying too much for em if anyone has em (random sales plug)

    This Ashwood staff is OP. If you strike the ground it prones/stuns the entire planet.

    Shaman is top 5, artied, min-maxed out, DPS wise. In fact, Shaman ranked #2, Serpent ranks #1. Shikudo is now #3, followed by DWC, then Bard. Again, this is artied out and considering only DPS.

    Haven't tried out Shaman or Shikudo, but DWC is not better than Bard. Your testing is flawed.
  • AileaAilea Member Posts: 134 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    In terms of hunting... Shikudo is a bit better than Tekura overall, particularly if you use Tykonos-Willow-Rain-Oak-Willow. In a chain formation and have flowed your attacks well. Your kata chains are rather important to scale up the damage even against denizens. These attacks also go nice with the battlerage abilities. I have also noticed that the Willow and Oak stances will take more damage than Rain and Tykonos when hunting. I still want to continue to test a bit to see any other variations. 

    BTW: Definitely bard is still better than Tekura/Shikudo. (Also DWC)

    I know hunting. Bard > Monk.

    If this was the case, then swiftcurse hunting would be better than everything in Achaea.

    Hint: It's not. 

    Shaman isn't top 5. Shaman isn't better than Bard or DWC. Shikudo also is not better than either of those two.

    Ryzeth can you post numbers from your testing please? Dochitha tests using a very specific method that enables very high accuracy, using full sets of level 3 artefacts.

    It seems like you don't test things and just go by feel, and don't have access to full level 3 arties.

    I'd be interested in hearing about what this very specific method that enables very high accuracy is.

    This. 

    Where are Sena style numbers? It all seems very anecdotal to me with general "artied out" as a base line.

    I've got a lvl 3 sword and pendant, hunting in lesser feels like I'm slicing through warm butter most of the time, it's awesome, yet it's not mentioned in the top 5.

    Actual data please.

    Im absolutely loving Shikudo monk. I believe it is really making me push myself as an Achaean. I always shy'd away from monk due to the "complexity" of it. But, i decided it was time take it on, plus I always played a stick monk in DnD so this was a good opprotunity do play it in achaea as well.

    Are you saying Shikudo is -less- complex than Tekura?
  • ArmaliArmali Member, Secret Squirrel Posts: 1,326 ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand Achaean
    Well, at the moment, some of the damage at the higher end is ridiculous so it could be? You're damaging AND you're hindering!
  • DochithaDochitha Member Posts: 1,415 @ - Epic Achaean
    I am more interested in matchups vs shikudo. How it could handle other classes..
    telepathy and kaido are already solid. Interested to fight more classes once I get it down a bit more. It is quite complicated.

    Placing one foot on the chest of Laniara to hold her in place, you drive your staff down with all your strength into her weakened throat. The gurgling death rattle is the only sound to herald her death as she gives a single great convulsion beneath your heel, then falls still.
    You have slain Laniara.
    Defeated, Laniara is cast out of the Arena.

    You submit the idea #5231

    'Shikudo, Frontkick, any chance we could get an insertion as to which side is targeted in the strike? ^You lash out with a straight kick at the ???? shoulder of (\w+)\.$'
