    Scripting is not needed for any class.

    Kay thanks, some things I read elsewhere gave me a bad impression I guess. So priest, sylvan, or shaman, not dw, psion, serp, or jester? Those seem like the other main aff classes, just not as good at hunting?

    It depends on your budget. Psion and Depthswalker are pretty bad no matter what, but honestly they're not so awful that you shouldn't pick them if your main focus isn't going to be bashing and you think either of them would be fun.

    Serpent isn't great with no artefacts. You're either sacrificing health or garrote speed when choosing between dexterity or constitution with your racial specialisation and trait selections. If you have 20,000 credits to drop purely on making a class good at bashing then Serpent is probably the best choice of any class in the game.

    Bard isn't on your list, but that's also an affliction class. Like Serpent, it's also fantastic if you can invest a lot of credits into it. However, unlike Serpent, you're only losing damage - not attack speed - if you pick constitution over strength, so it's much less of an issue to do so.

    Okay, I will most likely go with shaman or psion then, priest is a maybe. Thanks all.

    I wouldn't go Psion.
    No matter how artied you are, if bashing is on your list of things to do do not pick Psion.

    I can't imagine there are any classes right now that are worse than Psion at bashing.  Even fully-artied, my psion's bashing ability is less than my snb paladin's.

    Apostate is absolutely abysmal, if psion is even worse it's not worth playing.

    Apostate bashing isn't that bad. Deadeyes is pretty meh, but Decay is alright (same scaling as Warp iirc). Downside to apostate is needing quick-witted/diadem to bash well with, despite it using balance predominantly for combat.

    How does masochism work? Is it %health damage or Is it pretty much unnoticeable for fatties?

    I am a runewarden, and am 2h for now, but might switch after I get high enough level. I want a limb damage class that let’s me get to do combat without having to do a huge amount of math, not interested if I have to calculate different amounts for 4k, 4.1k, and 4.2k. Having some affs to play around with would be nice, but I want them to be an addition not a requirement, so I can flee and come back without losing much but hinder. So, what are the advantages/disadvantages of sticking with 2h, vs switching to dwc around level 85 or 90?
      
  • KeldahKeldah Member Posts: 4
    Not sure how to edit, but it is also worth mentioning I want at least some versatility and most likely will not be buying credits any time soon. Would consider sandb, but saw in an old post it’s limb damage sucks, so would require a lot more calculating I would do while being stabbed to death.

    1. 4 hits to break limb of all health, uncomplicated math, checked.
    2. affs to play around, checked.
    3. not be buying credits, checked.
    4. still keep your 2h, no switching needed.
    You just need to not stop at level 90.

    It's still definitely the worst one. Don't know if it's even viable.

    Can someone explain to me the difference between true blind and blackout? I know true blind helps you bypass totems and runes but is there any other differences?

    Blackout prevents you seeing a plethora of useful information, health, attacks (such as limb hits to throw off self-counts), have to DIAG to track your incoming afflictions.

    trueblind is blind, but things like wunjo don’t penetrate it, so you won’t see totems and anything thay requires you to be able to see. There are exceptions, but I don’t have a list on hand with that regard (afaik you can’t be transfixed by magi, but can be snapped by serpent? I haven’t personally tested either, and I’m not super reliable source!)

    Is there a way to "unphase" as mistral or is it a wait-it-out kind of thing?

    Yeah that is what I thought, does it act like a stronger verison of blackout where they wont see affs and limb damage as well?

    Trueblind is just blind without mindseye up.
