  1. LeWaffles added a post in a topic I made some educational PvP videos to help out my fellow rangers who might be struggling on how to use our moves defensively.   

    Very well put together video, and SUPER helpful.
    Now ima need you to hold my hand and do one for every single class, especially ninja and DK.

    Also replace cold blade with Protected Area.
    Do these things, and ranger will be balanced.

  3. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Zodiac Sign and RNG (and more)   

    Without making possibly hundreds of thousands of enhancing attempts on a set item at a set enhancement level with a set amount of failstacks with a set amount of luck at a set time of the day ingame with a set amount of people all typing "Ameno" at precisely the moment you press the enhance button, and make sure that each of these variables are precisely the same each of those hundreds of thousands of times, it is impossible to determine if a set pattern repeats. Too many variables to change/limit to prove it myself, id rather just read up on Wikipedia how RNG in crypto devices work and see how it pertains to here and realize that TRUE RNG does not exist in this game. Is it good enough to fit the needs of this game? yeah, I think so =)
    I get whatcha mean though. I Just wanted to talk too.

  4. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Complete Evasive Explosion Shot question   

    It doesn't happen super often, and youre right its probably due to the lag or desync, but generally if they cc me while im supposedly in the middle of the animation it looks like im laying on the ground but the ground is a foot above everybody's heads.

  5. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Ranger is broken, in a bad way.   

    Ranger isn't that bad. Ill compile a list of popular complaints against ranger, and what I think about it. Some might have a different opinion, but obviously my opinion is the only important one.
    1) With the awakening weapon released, bow is no longer used, ruining what we thought was going to be a primarily ranged class... This is partly true. PvE is done 99% with awakening weapon, and PvP is usually mostly done with awakening weapon. However, youll notice that the ones saying they cant use Bow in PvP are average-slightly better than average rangers, and the excellent ones still use it a decent amount of the time.
    2) Mana pot usage and durability consumption... This is 100% a problem. Mana pot chugging even with double extraction crystals in mainhand, I don't think another class is as mana-pot heavy as us. Durability is also horrible, youll run out incredibly quickly grinding. It basically requires you to brand your awakening weapon and offhand if you want to grind for more than half an hour without going back to town.
    3) Lack of super armor/ I-frames compared to other classes... Im not 100% sure how I feel about this. Lately as I fight DKs more often, I find that I-frame on pretty much every movement a class makes is VERY good, and VERY difficult to beat. I wish ranger's frontal block was a little bit better, or I-frames on certain actions were either added or extended, but keep in mind we have excellent mobility and arguably the best grab in the game (besides probably zerker). Not every class can have everything good. I think ranger would be OP if we got a spammable I-frame or a very very good super-armor.
    4) Nothing is as good as wiz/witch/DK... In group PvP, which is what matters, this is pretty much at least halfway accurate. In a game where cc and aoe burst are the most important factors, rangers are mid tier. Many node wars revolve around a zerk or valk or 2 or 4 going in, CCing people, and wizards and witches blowing stuff up and casting protected area. THIS IS THE MOST DOMINANT TACTIC. And rangers don't really fit in it. We can dart around and assassinate high value enemies, but almost any top tier guild will tell you that they would rather have a wiz/wit/war/zerk over ranger assuming equal gear and equal skill. Are we useless? Nah. Are we da bestest in the game? Na.
    Overall rangers have better than decent farming, at the cost of convenience WHILE farming (mana and durability), and their PvP is good in small groups and very situationally good in large groups.

    Mmmm. Maybe youre talking about Descending current?
    You stand in one spot and shoot a bunch of arrows into the air and they come down on the mobs?

    I think youre talking about Will of the wind. Hold D+F or A+F.
    Highly recommend double extraction crystal to spam this move, otherwise youre gonna want to just shotgun everything.

  8. LeWaffles added a post in a topic fix Valencia drop rates or...   

    I think that's just wrong. Even without M2 trading for the coins, pirates is better I think. Not trying to be rude, maybe im just missing something, but the only places I can think of in Valencia that compare to pirates would be gahaz if you can steamroll the shadows, or jail that I haven't been to but heard it isn't as good.
    If you guys know something I don't (which is possible) then ok, but afaik pirates is still considered best exp/money per hour, even with the PvP that will inevitably happen.

  9. LeWaffles added a topic in Ranger   

    Ranger VS DK
    Im curious what you guys find the 1v1 matchup favorability to be?
    Ive gone against a large amount of various DKs by now. Some of them are geared better than me, some of them are just plain better than me at the game. But even the ones that are a good 30 GS lower than me and/or a level below, or not quite optimal with their moveset are able to beat me more often than I would like. It seems to me that ranger just might have a bad MU against them, or maybe I just don't know how to play the MU yet.
    Any get good tips or ideas you guys have for beating them? I mainly struggle against their I-frames, and if I miss a grab I generally lose. Upon landing a grab successfully I can win, its getting to the point where they are KD that I struggle with. DK ranged KD> Ranger ranged KD imo, and the large amount of I-frames make it difficult to grab them.

  10. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Complete Evasive Explosion Shot question   

    I agree. EES I-frame is the most consistent imo, even if its like the least spammable.
    Is anybody noticing CFtS I-frame is kinda unreliable though?

  11. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Complete Evasive Explosion Shot question   

    While I don't know the answer, perhaps I can comfort you with the knowledge that after level 50 or so, you will pretty much rarely use EES. Its bread and butter up to that point, but after that primary farming from 51-56 is WotW--> Shotgun spam. But I think melenium is right, not sure, but I think so.

  12. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Ranger need a buff   

    Perhaps my definition of super-armor is different than yours, but what skills exactly give us super armor? I cant think of any. I thought they were all frontal block only.

  13. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Fail stacks a fail since last update   

    I have personally noticed nothing bad/bugged about the system. My reblath is just as RNG-ey as before, I can still get to 18-20 FS about 50% of the time.
    Green gear seems slightly better than before. Slightly.
    This is over roughly 220mil spent on enhancing, obviously not all of it was spent on reblath, and green gear, maybe 40mil was spent on mem frags, the rest spent on blackstones and a few concentrated when my supply ran out.
    Now that I think about it, my sample size info is useless, just wanted to show that while I don't have specific numbers, it is a large pool of data and I didn't notice any negative trends.

    Aaaand I want each of them to last 4 weeks and give me boss gear.

  15. LeWaffles added a post in a topic Workers not "working"   

    I resolve this by going to character selection screen and coming back in, but the real question is does the worker keep working and it just SHOWS 0s or do they in fact stop working and you lose out on that income until you catch it?
