  1. Destroyer Legendary Soul Badges

    First question is, will you be able to do VT? If yes, then the sky is really the limit. If you cant, then you have more limited options since atleast for shadow, your playstyle is quite different. Earth not so much since its progression is linear. Earth Badges ~> Primal Force is nearly a must. It gives you 3 seconds of wrath with directly helps skyrift. Shadow ~> Both Magnum and Blue Moon are really good, i play earth so as for what is better of the 2, i cant really say. As for damage.....this is always a toss up. Personally id say play what you feel like, as of now, the damage difference between 2 excellent players is nearly null. Its more about what gear you have vs what gear they have. Also what buffs you get, since Shadow scales better with SB then earth. But earth has a flatter dps curve all around. Soon they are making some changes which is helping Earth be rid of its movement impairment and slowing down shadow slightly.
  2. Good idea, bad design. Pvp is fine, open world pvp is fun. Trying to get something that takes 18 seconds to do, while not dying, is impossible. It doesnt matter if people have however many kills are needed to get to the title, they will simply do kills just for giggles. Move the pvp to a different area, and let people spin w/o being harrassed.
  3. Untradeable Event Outfits Not Eligible For Transfer

    Temptation was re-released later on as an account bound item. Pistachio Dream i dont think was ever re-released, but honestly, i dont see the reason why you need to have outfits on specific chars. The likely hood that you are going to wear them is little to none.
  4. whats with the stupid time limit on dungeons.

    This isnt about elitism nor is about unfair programing (ill leave ToI out of this) its about setting a bar and making you jump over it. The point of the time limits is to make you better, not give you the ability to derp around in it all day till it dies to a 200tick of a bleed. And honestly, if you are getting timed out on naksun, you might wanna consider playing a different game. Or spend more time in F12 and actually learn what you are doing with your class, since you are possibly missing a huge part of what you need to do for a rotation.
  5. Earth or Shadow?

    A friend of mine is a shadow des and im an earth des. Both of us have high VT gear, his is higher due to having luck in a rancor drop (my group has only seen one and a ton of barbs) And we both do comparable damage. He has tried earth, but found it hard to use since the lack of mobility + damage affected him since he has been shadow since it became really popular in BT. He did say that the VT shadow gear really messes up your rotation since you lose pulse effect when using the VT badge. And having to re-learn how to manage your execute cd is a challenge but once you do learn it, its not much different thing normal. Now, on the topic of weapons. Both Earth and Shadow will use the raid path weapon. Reliable sources in a few discords that i go to have stated that KR is shifting their dps spread to suit raid path weapons over non-raid path. With the highest weapons leaning nearly 30% in favor of raid path. Their reason is...can you raid and are not cheap ~~> Do big damage.....you cant raid ~~> lose about 30-40%. This does include Earth Des and Haesin weapons. They finally saw that there was no reason for a few classes (mostly just single specs) to go with a totally different weapon to do their maximum potential. The hard part is, on paper, alot of times those non-raid weapons will show to be higher, but the overall scaling will be lower.
  6. Top dps in now and next?

    From what ive have seen: Fire Gunner Lighting Sin Wind KFM Fire FM Lighting BD Fire BM Ice WL Shadow Des Wind Summ Ice SF These class/Spec Combos are insane in the first 10-15 seconds of a fight (during SB) After that from personal experince (not complete due to lack of raiding with some specs) Fire Gunner Everyone else Due to the burst that fire gunner is pushing out, their damage range is not even compairable to everyone else. With enough gear, anyone can top the board, but if you are partied with a Fire gunner with avg BT gear and maybe a piece or 2 of VT gear, you arent even comming close. Good example, i play Earth Des, friend plays Fire gunner, i am running 5/3 VT/BT 2/3 Earring 3/3 Ring, Ancestral Fusion, VT badge Raven 9 and stage 4 awakened cosmic (2 stages from true)....They are running BT shields, 10 ring, 9 earring, Aransu 4, and hongmoon true soul, everything else is pre VT stuff, and from the start of the fight till the end i cant even catch them. So TLDR Fire Gunner OP, Shadow Gunner is decent, but There should be some kind of way to equal stuff out.
  7. Gunner in 6v6

    if you are trying to put this towrds a MOBA then an ADC doesnt have an option to just run away endlessly with immunity skills. Being able to drop anyone that isnt in an immunity in 2 seconds while being immune yourself is busted. As soon as that immunity is over, they just run away, usually with 2-3 kills in their pocket.
  8. air combos in pvp

    But here is the problem with WL air combo, you cant leave it once it starts. The damage is higher then anything another class can pull while you have the option to escape.
  9. ToI

    The NPCs are moving, they are programed to do everything possible to slow you down, so if it is possible, they will do it. They will even ignore a "global cooldown" to do it. I just find it funny that they are going to ban players for editing files to lower this number, but allow their AI to do the exact same thing. Then yet, when you throw ticket after ticket after ticket to support, and their replay is always "use the forums, the dev team reads them". When myself and a handful of others have posted over and over how much of a pain ToI is and how it is impossible for some players to actually do it. Playing against a zero ping opponet is impossible. I understand the lower cd part, but having the ability to do multiple skills in the same instance is utter bull. For instance, SF casts FM stance rmb, i am using ram (des 2) while the graphic is leaving his hand, before i make contact with him, he stance swapped and used q/e. I play SF as well, and i know that is impossible to stance swap and use a dodge skill in the same instance. But its possible if you are the AI and are programmed to cheat players out of time simply because "thats just how it is". And yes i do understand that getting floor 100 is possible and many players have achieved this. But if you look, its not consisant. Honstly i think the game should take a snap shot of your ping apon entering the room and thats what the AI is allow to use. Becuase face it, 150ms ping vs 0ms ping is far from fair.
  10. ToI

    Their skills do have a CD but it is reduced the higher you go. For example a Sin used a CD on me which was 18 seconds on paper but in game it was 6 seconds faster then it should have been but did not get a reset. They have stated before that ToI AI does have shorter CDs the higher you go up on the floors but the main issue i have is the perdiction and avoiding abilities while having 0 ping, you have to remember that the AI is based off the server, and your commands have to hit the server before they do anything, so when you imput a command, the AI already knows what it is. The only way to "fix" this is to delay the reaction time of the AI, but even then, with ping fluxuations you would still be way behind what the AI is possible of. Not only that, they have perfect timing on abilities because everything is all 1's and 0's for them, they dont have a thought process, we do. But as it has been proven, every class can reach floor 100, what seperates people is gear.
  11. Top dps in now and next?

    What the post above me stated, Currently fire gunner is broken beyond fairness. Their burst is far to high to be considered inline with anything. And ill have a small smile on my face when its nerfed to oblivian and people cry that they cant just hit tab and kill everything in 3 seconds.
  12. Leaving Early

    ok, and when a person with great gear and alot of experince is being punished by having to carry deadweight players through a what should be a 10min instance for 20-30mins, it makes sense that they leave. Im only short on a few items from being completely maxed, and unless its a EL or IF run, i feel like 85-90% of all the damage is comming from me, and only during hardmodes do i see that maybe 1 other person is doing about what im doing, and i leave runs all the time. Mostly due to i personally am just getting tired of having to carry people. Few examples - DT, ill clear the first area and be waiting at the boss and some person that are bale/seraph 8/9 still havent loaded in yet. Shogun Lament - Ill be waiting at the first door and people are killing all the trash just so they can complete a pointless daily that gives little to nothing. As soon as we get past twins, they take forever just to get the quest while im standing a the mini boss waiting to kill it. Twin birds - 3-4 people will stand AFK while all the mini-boss people spawn thinking they are special and do not need to do anything since it dies quickly. Ive said this alot before, if you want to be carried, atleast participate, dont just stand there. Naryu Foundry - I can run and kill everything up to the fire wall before lavabiter while people are running with stuff chasing them out of windwalk speed because they got hit and dont stop and kill the 1 mob thats chasing them, wasting the whole groups time becuase they dont want to do anything other then run. NS - tons of people take 5-10mins just to get to the first boss, which is un-needed. Then while doing first boss they decide that attacking the chaining adds helps and drag them who knows where because they are "helping". Once you get into EL and IF usually people have a bit more of a brain and actually know what they are doing. Sometimes its really sloppy other times it is not.
  13. To all the low ap players in F8

    Only came in to share my recent experince of an Asura run while doing F8 LFP. I am a hm14 1072ap Des. Everyone in my party minus 1 was below hm8. In which im completely fine with. I can solo the instance quite easily, and i do not have a problem carrying people, since i do it all the time. What i do have a problem with is when people decide that since im already doing all the damage, they can just AFK parts since im already doing all the work. That is a no go. Im not there specifically to carry you, your friends or anyone else. I expect you to participate in all parts. The reason why i say this is right after the 2nd boss, we got to the mini bosses before birds, killed the first batch, killed the 2nd, and noticed something. Everyone other then me was standing near the dragon blood post waiting for me to kill everything. If it was a bunch of friends im in discord with, i wouldnt mind, but when you are a group of randoms, that is disappointing. So i decided i was going to AFK as well, and you wanna know what happened? Nothing. We stood there, all 6 of us for a good 5mins before 1 person decided that they were going to do something, and it was the 2nd lowest AP in the group. After that, 2 people died, and they finally moved to the birds, in which another 2 people died. Then i decided it was time to just get it over with. TLDR just becuase you get a hp AP person in your group, doesnt mean you can just float and not do anything. Participate in the instance and get it done quicker. Then everyone is happy.
  14. Des vs BD

    Twice I have said that....simply because the ones that are making the arguments never post anything other then comments....no parses...no screens...nothing. As I said when comparing des to bd it is the same as apples to oranges. Having 2 abilities that function the same does not make them the same class. BD pve damage is slightly higher but not by an amazing amount. Certainly not 1.5x what a Des can put out as you claim. As for pvp a bd friend of mine, who btw is a top 30 all areas, says that des is stronger. Which does go against what I had said but I do more pve then anything. Thus if you have a stable connection and like pvp des would be the best choice, if pave is your main the go bd.....just remember that things change often and only those that prowl the kr forums really know what is going on.
  15. Des vs BD

    Shouldnt make personal attacks on the fourms, thats getting off topic. And ontop of that you are compairing apples to oranges. And looking back at your last posts, they are angry retorts to other posts, nothing constructive. IF you want to make a choice between the 2, play through the story on both. Pick the one you liked. Asking for opinions is like asking someone to squeeze the trigger on a loaded gun.
