  1. FM worthless in Battlegrounds?

    Well first of all, you need to have decent gear, regardless of class. PVP soulshields: 5x Elder + 3 Challanger should be fine, fuse them to reach at least 2k crit def, rest into piercing and crit. Mystic badge: Fire - Skyrift, Ice - Pulse Soul Badge - I prefer red one for frost armor extra 20% healing, really helping t stay alive. My build: Some times i switch phantom grip to shadowgrasp, and frost burst to ice coil , depends on classes in the enemy team. For BM block spam, and BD spin spam you can use frost tornado/phantom grip/heathwave whatever is availabe atm. In my opinion FM is very good at 6vs6, most of matches i end up with highest dps among both teams, even if there are better geared players.
  2. Please Nerf Blade Dancers in Arena

    @FrozenB FM's are so good, that there was not a single one in EU regional championships, and none of 3 teams with FM from NA regional championship passed through. So maybe 1vs1?, lets look at the current EU ranking and how this most played class perform: 351 SUM's in gold or above 337 BD's in gold or above 282 BM's in gold or above 277 KFM's in gold or above 274 SIN's in gold or above 262 WL's in gold or above 238 DES in gold or above 182 FM's in gold or above 152 SF's in gold or above Yep, FM's are so op right now so they are almost outnumbered by least played class in ranking, while being most played class. You can be very good as an FM, like i think 3-4 ppl keeping class ranking top with alts, but it is one of the hardest class to master, on the other hand BD is one of the easiest and most forgiveable one, with ton of defensive skills to cover their mistakes, and easy high damge combos, plenty of CC's and utility. (I've played FM, WL, BD and SUM to your information)
  3. Top Classes / Bottom Classes

    As a matter of fact there was 3 teams in NA with FM in the group, none of them passed through though. You can check it here:
  4. @Karurosuda nice post, maybe you have also some tips for summoners? It's a hardest matchup for me when i play WL, and still don't have any good idea how to deal with them.
  5. Please Nerf Blade Dancers in Arena

    Agree, you don't really need a skill to reach gold as BD, and they are in almost every team on tournaments for some reason. They was op even before skill revamp, and then they've got defence/deflect penetration soaring falcon with full focus regen and KD in one skill (18s cd) plus ability to use Maelstorm with deflect spin.
  6. Current WL ToI spec

    I started to play with my alt WL (~800 AP now), i have few questions about ToI: 1. Shadow is far much better than Ice there? 2. Which badge should i use? 3. Should i go for 5 Challanger/3 Sparring or rather 5 MSP/3 Challanger? 4. Can someone post builds for each classes (for current skill patch)? I only found outdated ones. 5. Any tips&tricks, ways to"fool" bots mechanics for certain opponents? I will be very gratefull for any answers or usefull links
  7. Question on Chi Bomb/ Multi-Blaze badge

    It's not multiple blaze, it is shadowgrasp effect from VT mystic badge: Each successful cast of [fire 4] Shadowgrasp grant Hellfire. Hellfire will deal bonus Additional Fire Damage equal to 8500% of AP in an AoE over 5 seconds. Burning Warpath will ignore Block and Deflect.
  8. FM crying

    Fm is very good on PvE, skill revamp and new gear made it even better dps monster. In PvP it was trash tier since max level went to 50 after constant nerfing while boosting others, of course there are few players with godlike ping and skill who can "squeeze" the limits out of it, but it is still overall worst performance along all classes when we consider how many FM's actually play. Chloroform, best FM EU, yesterday was ranked #34 for example. FMs are second from the bottom when it comes to number of players in rank gold or above, there are only few less Soul Fighters, but we all know how many SF there are on servers. But there are some really good balance changes before us, we just need to wait till they come to EU/NA. So don't give up, let the fire and ice be with You :)
  9. Want balance ?

    Most funny thing i've read here today :) Here you have number of player in gold rank or above in 1vs1 form EU + (highest place in all ranking) SUM 815 (1) BD 727 (8) SIN 631 (9) WL 548 (3) BM 545 (19) KFM 452 (22) DES 392 (5) FM 257 (34) SF 226 (65) Those are facts. And FM is most played class atm, finally devs realize how deep low in pvp tiers FM are, and there will be upcoming FM buffs, as well as sin&wl nerfs for example. Second funny thing. Even WLs agree they are op atm. I have wl in my 3vs3 pt and he agree too, as well as someone in this thread. Upcoming nerfs for WL are proving it.
  10. Force Master in 2k17

    Force Master was good at max lvl 45 times, but after this NC$oft renamed class into Nerf Master, and it became trash tier in pvp, and stay like this. There was always less force masters in gold or above rank in 1vs1 than any other class, even if FM is probably most played class, at least on EU, but i think NA is similar. There is a small light at the end of the tunnel, and i mean those changes from KR: April 27, 2017 Backstep M3 Cooldown decreased to 12 sec from 36 sec Cooldown set to 36 sec when used while inflicted by stun, daze, knockdown, unconscious Blaze Step, Frost Step Cooldown decreased to 12 sec from 16 sec Force Blast Cooldown decreased to 24 sec from 36 sec May 11, 2017 Impact HM M1 Added 'Penetrates deflect' Hope we will get them ASAP, cause they need to make equal skills before World Championship with all regions.
  11. Weapon upgrade beyond Baleful 10

    Upgrade to stage 12 baleful. Then straight to raven stage 3 (cheaper way than baleful 10 -> raven 1, 2, 3) If you don't make any BT at the time don't worry, just collect mats and gold for uprade, then just buy a spot in raid for Raven Kings Energy or join a clan which is making BT raids.
  12. i just leave it here... Numbers of each class in current EU top 100 BD 17 (highest rank 9) Destro 14 (highest rank 2) WL 14 (highest rank 7) SIN 14 (highest rank 19) Sum 13 (highest rank 1) BM 9 (highest rank 10) KFM 8 (highest rank 11) SF 6 (highest rank 35) FM 5 (highest rank 44) Also remember about population of each class, (less played SFs, KFMs, destros, and most played FMs, Summoners and WL's)
  13. Mushin F19

    It's easy. I start from the right side with heathwave to KD them both, then firestorm on gunner for aerial, C, V, RMB, LMB + Dual Dragons on both. Now the gunner jump back so i just Q or E through BM and start normal pve rotation RMB, LMB, 2 while still moving around gunner with A. BM will spam "snake-move aproach", just ignore and finish gunner as soon as possible. If you dont stop you should avoid gunner AoE and kill him fast. So in short words, kite BM around gunner, kill gunner, kill BM. Of course higher dps = easier it will be.
  14. Frost build on new skill system

    @Zedonia My ingame name is different, i'm only FM on the opposite side (on this screen), i've made slightly less dmg than You but i don't have raven and crit soul yet, only balefull stage 8 and stage 7 soul :) Overall Your team had 100 more AP than our, and better gear, but obviously not everybody there was good at pvp, and you couldn't carry whole pt, its not bronze. Have a nice day :)
  15. Frost build on new skill system

    Well ice build was something good if You wanted to try something else than "left right 2", but now, when fire build will be boosted AF, and when You have to choose element and spend thousands of gold on the elemental acc from BT, farm ToI and peaches for soul&mystic badge, there is really no room for frost build imho, unless you are ok with staying behind. BTW @Zedonia gf yesterday :p
