Destroyers are already a pita in arena with the reflect stun tab spam (which annoys me WAY more than any other skill they have), the vacuum slash (or) Jump to lauch face smash + lmb fiesta they currently enjoy. But however they still need to get passed all the Infinite Focus/stealth Summoners starting to show up. lvl 23 smn rank 1 on EU due to this.

...Spec 3 down the left side of Wingstorm and spec Dragoncall as it will always finish casting even if they stealth. When they stealth, use E to Vacuum them out if they are near you and Q stun with Thrall if they web you so you don't have to blow tab.

 

Destroyer is LITERALLY Warlock food. You can actually repulse their 1/2, or drop C at the start if they open with that. Block their Z pull if they run it and save your X for when they spin on you. If they red spin, chain and just trololol away. If they grab you, Thrall Q and break out of it without using your 2. If they V shield, use 3 to break it UNLESS they have Hongmoon Emberstomp, in which case use Tether Blade. Spec 2 into right side of Rupture and you can spec 3rd tree over on RMB to pierce their spin Parry. You really just don't know how to play against a Destroyer.

IYou should.

If game will be like Aion or Lineage 2 for kids i will, then you will play with other kids xD I will change game to Black Desert Online, or Last Ark when it will be off in EU. Game is boring if you must farm 4h+ the same daily, quests for gold and mats. I have my on live and dont like to waste it for doing the same like a bot :)

This game doesn't need you or me etc.It'll have a high player base for a long time simply due to great combat.
Just leave if you don't like the game,noone cares.

Great combat is nothink when there is no balance. All players who dont like farm, pvp stop at the profane or siren weapon. When i play the game in poh, bsh are almost 0 players. Game dont care about me and i dont care about the game. It is simple rule like in other games. :)

I don't know which server u play,i see lots of people in 24 mans at starfall.Maybe try a different channel or partying up.
And again you're free to leave if you think this game is not balanced and don'tlike grinding.
If you enjoy reaching end game content in 1-2 weeks and have nothing left to do,this is not the game for you.
Only flaws of this game currently are technical stuff which are fps and lags/delays .
