How does destroyer "avoid" damage?

Recommended Posts

Truce   

other classes have more iframes and/or block/parry they can use to mitigate damage, i.e. q/e iframes, iframe on skills such as assassin's c, or infinite 0 cost bm block/kfm parry. 

 

I'm pretty new to destroyer, and I was wondering what is destroyer supposed to do, in absence of the damage mitigation methods mentioned above, to avoid damage?

 

Thanks

 

edit: sorry I meant for pve

I use Hurricane a lot do dodge and resist some damage, skilled it can have increased movement speed, 400% defense, damage reduction or even parry.

You C also gives you Iframe and you have your SS like every other class and the shield which is meh ish cause its breakable atm till we get the hongmoon skill later.

Yeah my big problem with the C is that unlike many other I-frames it's SO OBVIOUS. you are literally swinging your axe around in the most obvious way ever.

Spin to win, For damage immunity, you have your back-step "SS",  "C" and the "E", but the spin move on "Tab" is your best friend, it absurdly reduces damage taken, has CC immunity and is spammable (i don't know if this is the right word).
With the middle three on blue spin(400% defense and -25% on first hit), on Hae Mujin "Meteor" attack, one hit can easily give 14k damage, when i'm spinning i gives around 1k.
This is my tips for PVE, for PVP i'm really bad and my ping is 280, so nothing to add.
OBS: spin don't work on Blackwyrm roars.

Destroyers have a lot of iframes if needed. They have typhoon, blitz, ram, swinging strike, fury, SS, power slam and your tab will parry on your first spin for .5 secs.

Yeah but be careful because a lot of those have high cooldowns.

C button skill has nice, since if in pve or pvp they resist you can knock them in the air and pile drive them. If you have fast reaction when kfm ss just press c haven't tested yet cause of my timing.

Yea, but most skills can be dodged with tab parry and you can spec Stone Shield to be up every 24 secs. The iframes are for special purposes. Rotate c q e 1 2 ss. Destroyers can tank Blavkwyrm. That's probably the best way to learn your iframes.
