Witch or Wizard after awakening?

69 posts in this topic

Posted

I was searching for information as to which one (Witch or Wizard) will be more worth it to play after awakening but couldn't really find any good information. Initially I went for Witch because honestly who wants to play as an old fart but if the awakening makes it more worth to play I wouldn't mind leveling a Wizard, especially since they will get a new younger face+body option so I could endure a couple of months as an old fart until then. I would very much appreciate any info regarding this, thank you!

I like the mobility of both of the classes for awakening, and it really depends on the elements you like.

So neither is stronger in any aspect just different elements?

I can't say for sure, but the wizard will be able to use golems (fire and water ones). It looks really cool and fun to play:

Witch and wizard are both equal in terms of damage.  The skills all do the same damage for the most part but one is fire and water the other lightening and earth.

The big difference is that wizard is more frontal AOE based and has a grab.

Witch is more 360 damage with a block.

Also the witch's poison pool draws enemies in whereas the lava pool does not.

Personally I think witch is better for pve grind, and moments where a block is really a game changer.  I have seen awakened wizards duel alot and they rarely get the grab off.  Especially against other grab classes.

Old fart it is then I guess, thanks. It could be worse, for example if wizards looked like female giants...now that would be something else. At least now I can tell my opponents who I defeat that they cannot even handle an old fart like me. B|

it's a fact. Even PA admitted this and significantly buffed witch's awakening to try to fix this. wizard is still stronger but it's less distorted now. A lot of Korean Witches were very upset with this too.

hmmm from what I have seen they look fairly even.  Guess we will have to see ourselves instead of relying on videos.

but don't expect any of them to be a true challenge vs. a good war,ranger or sorc; equal geared/equal skilled..

that doesn't look like equal skilled+equal geared ;):P 

;)

Thing is you cant really judge the video you have no idea how many times the witch int's him or anything.  But I bet you anything that warrior is geared.

he engages a frontal shield with sprint instead of jumpSpin: jumpspin breaks SA and fron Shield, so its the obvious engagement skill vs. a witch.

he also doesn't use block in between the skills to avoid getting CC'ed and bursted.

he also doesnt disengage, and he misses a LOT of his chasing, even though there is no dodge or tele to prevent the hit (something you see a good war maybe miss 1 in every 10-15th time they do it.).

he doesn't utilize any long CC combo's, or combo into CC after kd.

etcetc.

in short the war kind of sucks. both properly got high gear, but even when the war sucks i expect that the witch has vastly higher AP+DP (mostly on AP, since he does 80% of the wars HP in dmg in ONE skill, which should be closer to 30-40% tops).

 

but i am sure a Good witch will beat an average/bad war. but good vs. good equal AP+DP, i doubt the witch will stand much chance of ever winning, at best the witch can hope for a draw (when the war is low enough on HP and sprints off into the sunset to regen hp :P )

 

edit: lastly the war goes EZ which is generally a good sign of an bad player used to being gear carried.

I guess against a good warrior Wizard would be more viable then, IF the grapple lands

Are you kiddng? This is our time! Wizards finally get to be young and summon killer whirlpools out of thin air.

Witch is a dirty tramp with long spell casts and nothing particularly cool. I'm also mad at them for getting lightning because water/lightning would've been amazing and I love lightning spells.

Don't care though because young wizards! I've been waiting since the game launched for this.

Just from the video,

The witch has way more buff bars then the warrior who isn't even using alchemy stones it looks like.

A warrior that can't even clean 1 combo a witch is definitely not giving it his all, probably casual duel vs try hard...for video purposes.

Againist a mage you can't one shot, and then letting them teleport away to heal, you don't need a video to see the bias.

 

In any event there's no bad awakenings, just some that are slightly overtuned.

FYI, if you look at the health bars the witch is potting and the warrior is not...very try hard infront of the camera here.
