Can we just take a minute to appreciate the massive buff to grind speed for the Valk

59 posts in this topic

Jesus Christ its so much faster, the damage modifiers on the awakened skills is a massive jump in terms of pve. our mobility is awesome compare to what it was. and our utility kit for pve is pretty good, that aoe pull is so good.

 

I haven't even gotten my pve rotation down exact, but I can already notice a massive increase in clear speed.

I can dash up to a few different packs and use the aoe pull (S+F) to pull them into a pile and dash into them and just RMB burn them into the ground within a second and be off to the next pack

 

anyone that's having problems with PVE rotations, so far I found that

S+F>W+F>W+RMB>space>S+LMBx2 is looking pretty promising, and will normally clear most mobs out right now outside Valencia elites

 

anyone have any other combos for pve grinding?

Anytime you start to feel your combo slow down or lag off, you can hit space bar to speed yourself back up. Sometimes I like to start with S+F then W+F, S+E (celestial spear), Spacebar, W+Rmb. Other times i also find myself doing the same one you listed

I use +pve ap on w+rmb so I try to squeeze it in early on so the rest of the rotation is benfiting from the buff, but I rarely find mobs surviving past it

I will try this evening @pirates, my average was 2k bandanas x session when levelling up to 58 - before getting bored and logging an alt to gather/craft, meanwhile: I parked the +13 blue - waiting for some Artisan Memory Fueling piece - and switched to a more consistent DUO greenie.

If someone is selling a +15 or better dandy, send me a line ;)

We were lied to. They always said Valk was bad. Koreans never played valk because it's bad. Then when it comes to NA. It's -----ing so good. >.>. Lesson learned never trust those Koreans.

its been out a day, our gear thresholds are no where near KR's. we were 1v1 kings pre +20, and look how that turned out. give it a while for the meta to stabilize and we'll see where we stand. I can tell you this though the skill cap for our class just through the roof

Yeah, wait until every other class has their awakenings, then we can compare lol.

Also... anyone feel like we are more tanky / can block more damage when holding awakening shield up?

tbh I sat in arena all day yesterday and couldn't really tell :x. This could also be due to the fact that I was just bum-rushing everyone though and spamming all the skills xD;;;

Awakened Valkyrie was never bad.

It's simply the morons on NA/EU that never played it and kept whining and meme'ing about the class being worthless.

I was grinding Sausans using non-awakening skills (still not comfortable with my awakened skills and I didn't even pick anything besides 1-2 skills) I get jumped by a Valkyrie using awakened skills; started to fight back using CS/SoJ and what have you while she was using awakening skills mostly. There was no chance, she ended up running away several times. No chance. But then again I'm a noob so I have no clue what was going on; maybe she was a horrible player.

Well I went into pvp spamming the buttons as a taster and got a few kills but wrecked 80% of the time due to not knowing wtf I was doing with it, I just wanted to use it!

Also, I dont care about the damage, we just look so leet jumping into 30 people.

So probably going to take my first crack @ PvE tonight. Anyone have any tips on what skills I should try using / what skill add-ons I should take? (I have a 1day cliff guide thingy from who knows where)

im low lvl (57), still need more lvls with awkening skills, but i didnt find S+LMB usefull, maybe im doing something wrong, but just span RMB looks better to me... i notice that no one is using the F... it bring more 20 AP for 10 secs, the problem  igot with that skill is that is explode and split the pack of monsters... i still didnt find when to use Verdict (Shift+RMB) to...

I was thinking the s+lmb would be more of a PvP thing. It does really dumb amounts of damage on targets that are downed, that being said most PvE monsters that can be knocked down are normally suuuuuuuper squish so they die easily more or less with other skills. Was thinking either the man leap of justice into holding RMB or shift+lmb>holding RMB would be decent in PvE.

Ive been having a hell of a time with spacebar (promptness), alot of times ill just jump in the air instead. The timing is very exact.

The more you do it, the better you'll get at the timing, but it's amazing once you get it down. I'd practice by hitting S+Shift then space and keep doing that movement to practice the timing

Andross I will name my firstborn after you if you update your awesome guide with the awakening skills and combos (and maybe gear)

I'll have it done in a few days, i'm still trying to gear up :^)
