Shortsword only Kuno?

15 posts in this topic

Posted

I like kuno's shortsword/kunai gameplay, but hate the awakening. Is it possible to be a good kuno without using the chakram+awakening skills or would I be gimping myself?

Definitely would be gimping yourself, you need the damage from the awakening weapon to do most of the zones in Valencia. Also not using your awakening weapon in pvp at all will be an instant loss for you, we are already pretty weak compared to other classes as is so not using the chakram is a big no no. However they are releasing a 2nd awakening for original weapons sometime in the future so the shortword might be viable again later on. 9_9

Non awakening weapon doesn't have enough damage. If you like the shortsword gameplay you may like Ninja's awakening more.

You might not know, but apparently PA plans to awaken/rebalance mainhands aswell, because how awakening weapons are superior right now. This wont happen for some time, but its something :D

I know, that wasn't the point of my statement. Nearly every class uses both weapon sets for some kind of utility purposes, just not as a main damage dealer at all.

What level are you? At 58 with 193/187/231 I find my awakening deal MUCH more dmg then any of my SS skills in all situation, the multipliers are just higher then any of our SS skills. Plz just tell me what skill you use to out performe your Chakram with your SS it might help me out.

You definitely put yourself at a disadvantage by not using your awakening weapon, but it's certainly possible to make it with just a SS. I personally use my SS more than my chakram, simply because my attack/evasion speed is faster with SS.

Did you rank all your awkaening skills? Shortsword shouldn't be equal  until the second awakenin

Preawakening was never good, not even amongst the other preawakening. After we got the awakening, our pre-awakening got nerfed. so yeah, just staying as a short sword kuno is a no no.

They will do a second round of buffs to all pre awakenings making them more viable, but thats a long way off.

As someone who prospered on kuno before we got our awakening vs all the other already awakened classes(and the ONLY reason I prospered was because I super outgeared everyone I fought), it'd deffinitely possible but I really would NOT recommend it since you're losing more than half of your dps by choosing not to use the chakram, not to mention all the cc's iframes and blocks that come built into all the awakening skills. If you hate the awakening that much, I would really recommend that you just switch classes entirely, since not using the awakening puts you at a severe disadvantage, with any class.

 

TL;DR  You'd be SUPER gimping yourself
