    Go Dark Knight or Wizard instead. Life of a Sorc is full of pain and suffering.

    Skill itself is called Night Crow but nobody calls it that. Second hop (they alternate if you spam) is... Storming Crow I think? It has tiny damage effect on cast with CC in it. Back in the ol' days when most classes couldn't just endlessly chain superarmors you could actually play to get a knockdown using Storming Crow.

    Hm, I did misremember how the spell worked then.

    Principle of the matter then? Eh. Skill does not seem very useful even if it worked properly. In the time it takes to shit out the spell (if I remember correctly), with no SA or block, any class will be on your ass and halfway into invasive colonoscopy.

    I'm not sure what you're expecting at this point - an actual fix? If so, I have a bridge to sell you!
    Better not stir their ire or they're gonna "adjust" Violation so it's no longer frontal block at all... or remove superarmor from Judgement. Or make Dark Flame frontal block only work off-cooldown.
    Edit: Oh, look, they did nerf damage on Dark Flame after all, just read Korean patch notes! See what you get for making waves? /s

    Well we have K:D ratio data from Korea (the only region that matters).
    Problem is they want to buff everyone instead of nerfing witchards... so yeah. If you think that's not exactly smart, you're not the only one. Not only will it take ages, so many things can go wrong.

    If you're trying to get into PVP... work towards TRI weapons and DUO armor as a priority. DUO that Scythe first of all, and slap an Ultimate Weapon Reform stone on it. Always try to have 5 cast speed and 5 crit if you can help it. Replace Taritas shoes with Talis or Zereth (much more useful bouses), or get full Grunil instead (although I think Agerian is pretty ok). Level to 59, this is kinda important because of ways the game treats level differences, it will also help with your skillpoints. For accessories, dump the Whales, get DUO Red Coral Earrings instead (Accuracy matters). Tree Spirit belt is a much cheaper alternative to Basis at low gearscores. For rings, you can get Valencia questline rewards (7AP + some HP) but try to get DUO Marks of Shadow. For Necklace, you might consider DUO Shultz or PRI Seraph instead of that Ogre Ring.
    Can't help you much with skills, I've been playing Sorc for a long time now and I never really had to consider their allocation (always had enough for what I wanted).

    I wish they considered loss aversion when designing enhancement system instead.

    Sorry, sarcasm translates poorly into text.
    And fun thing is that as far as I know they ain't gonna nerf DK or Wizards, are they? They gonna try and buff everyone else which will take AGES and carries insane risks of completely botching the job in a variety of fascinating ways.
    Maybe I should just quit playing.

    That sounds balanced.

  11. Zathel added a post in a topic New Player trying to pick class   

    Sorcs are seen as powerful thanks to efforts of a small group of players who've eaten their teeth mastering the class to exploit incredible skill ceiling it has to be almost as good as moderately skilled members of other classes. There's a lot of (decently skilled) Warriors and Wizards that go all "oh Sorc so OP" because they can actually get beaten 50% of the time by someone who's twice as good as them.

    Stinger into awakening swap into Violation (cancel into downward stab with leftclick) into Turn-Back Slash into Dead Hunt should kill anything you need killing and keep you topped up on mana and hp.

  13. Zathel added a post in a topic You need to change node days and some siege mechanics.   

    What I would love is for sieges not being glued to Saturdays. I'm as hardcore as I can be while holding a full-time job but my meager scraps of social life take up my Saturday evenings. Having, say, every second siege on a different day (Friday? Sunday?) would help a lot of people who are in similar situation to me. That or have the start time vary (one week at 8pm CET, one at 4pm CET for example).

    So now you actually have to watch your block meter instead of mindlessly turtling? Boo------ing-hoo. I hope warriors got the same treatment.

     Call me a crazy dreamer but I actually have a slimmer of hope they'll do that with the second awakening they promised.
