So, Witch has Air/Lightning and Earth, which could be classed as CC/Damage.

And Wizard has Fire/Water/Ice, which could be classed as Damage/Healing/CC. I'm really curious how the FX for Wizard will look like, as fire is usually done pretty meh in some other games. I hope it also has some more "magic" feel to it, same with Ice/Water attacks; and I really hope we get actual water.

I wish Awakenings were on par with normal weapons skills for damage ( or boost normal weapon skills) so that either play style was acceptable for end game.

If awakened skills did the same damage as normal witch skills but had less range then no one would use them. I think it is balanced like this:

-- If you want to risk getting in close(r) or someone closes the gap on you, use awakened skills.

-- If you want to play it safe and stay at range, use existing skills at the cost of less damage.

There also seems to be a fun synergy shown in the video where you freeze around you while using the staff and then switch to awakening to blow up what you just froze. Currently we have to get in close to use the 360 degree freeze but have no good followup.

When I first saw the awakening I was hyped but now I am confused.Even if skills are instacast there is a small animation going on,we gonna get armor or frontal blocks or its gonna be a cast interrupt fest again? Since most classes are cast interrupting us easily ,now on close range its gonna get even harder to finish the skill.we gonna learn how it works as long as its out on korea.

yer, however it is not long range either and the 8 max mob aggro makes the slow cast aoe's less effective for farm.

i am also dissapointed that it didnt seem to have any support or defensive abilities.

besides that AWESOME

Except the "summons" aggro mobs as well, as I pointed out already on the first page.

Pple so upset witch awakening is melee- mid range. They suddenly forgot what happened during every other awakening. I'm happy they gave us melee ranged kit, means I stand a chance now. All I can hope for is that we got a block.... Or whatever a wizard/witch would use to block.

^ this! anyhow the transfer between orbs and staff is seamless if you want to move far away drop a meteor and a couple ranged spells then move in switch to orb it just adds so many possibilities to play the class!

I guess the biggest problem with witch / wiz atm is small scale PvP. Besides chain lightning, it can be a little difficult to connect with a projectile when someone's running circles around you. Point blank aoes do solve that, but after watching the video a few times and getting over the initial hype and looking past the flashiness, I'm disappointed that it feels a bit one dimensional. I mean, all it really adds is close range aoes? Meh.

I appreciate and already acknowledged the significance of damage spells we don't have to aim at an I-framing sorc or what have you. What I was getting at is that I would like to see additional things, more than just nukes.

 

I may have been a bit hasty in my comment since we haven't seen the exact details of each of the skills, and there may be a couple that weren't showcased. Apparently one of the skills debuffs enemy movement, cast and attack speed. That's the sort of support skills beyond just a few more explosions that I would like to see.

 

Just a couple more days and we shall know more!

Looks like the summons are mid-rage casting proxies.  You summon, mobs go after golem and cast AOE blast thru golem to blast everything around it instead of you. Might be a good fake out move for PvP if it works that way.

They showcase the video a few days before the patch. The patch is tomorrow from 06:00 - 10:00 (UTC +9).
