Thief - terrible at evading?

15 October 2012 - 06:45 AM

I'm really not sure what the issue is, and if this is solely a thief thing (seems that way for me)
but thieves are just terrible at dodging.

I use the Champion Giant event in Nageling as the "testing dummy", I've done it a multitude of times my Warrior, Ranger and Thief, I always take him on in melee dodging the stomps.

Thief seems to be the only one that has problems with successfully dodging the stomps. Often times the dodge animation is being executed and I'm being hit regardless, something I've never experienced with my Warrior or Ranger.

Death Blossom is another attack that seems to suffer evade wise, as it seems to have some terrible wind-up latency problems. Often I know something is about to hit me and i use DB before the attack happens to evade it, but DB can take up to half a second to fire off sometimes making me take the blow to the face.

Anyone else experiencing such problems with the thief?

Elementalist dungeon viability

Being the extremely slow leveller that I am, I've only just managed to get to lv30 and ran my first AC story mode. Having no experience from BWE's.

Needles to say the entire group was getting owned left and right. We managed to do but I've racked up at least 15 deaths. The others, probably around the same amount.

My biggest gripe was the insane damage everyone was receiving and the insanely low healing we had. Getting focused usually meant being downed in a short time span after all my "oh crap" abilities were on cooldown. It didn't seem like there was any logical way to going around this.

So what are you fellow Elementalists doing in order to survive? This time I went scepter/dagger as we had another Elementalist in the group that was using a staff, thought I'd use my blasts to do some nice AoE healing, sadly he probably used a water combo field once or twice during the entire run. We also had 2 thieves that didn't use the pistol 5 skill the entire run, but seeing how blinds are only 10% effective on bosses that wouldn't help us much there. Would greatly help on trash tho, that was a problem as well >_>

I'm honestly lost. Help?

Edit: Just noticed I've posted this in the general PvE instead of Elementalist subsection, if a mod would move this I'd appreciate it.

So, apparently downed state counts as death? Is this working as intended? Been downed once and rallied successfully, after that incident the bar stopped moving. Sad panda.

With Off-hand light

Hey there,

Pretty new to thief, but one thing I've noticed is the fact that the 3rd skill depends on your main-hand and off-hand weapon combination.

One thing that really bugs me is the fact that when not using a weapon in your off-hand you also get a distinct ability. Now, I may just be clueless but isn't that a bad trade-off? Or are those skills just sooooo good that it's totally worth missing out on two abilities for them?

Anyone running with just a main-hand weapon around? Is it viable at all?
