Seriously, since we know the Awa is not very far away and that will change mechanics a lot, can I just button mash for now in PVE?

Better yet, if I were to button mash, or use some control over said button mashing what skills will STILL be valuable post AWA?

Thanks! I dont have enough time to keep adapting, so I figure I just tinker for now and get ore serious after awa is out. But a head start won't hurt ^_^

mostly using F,  F,  Space,  L + RMB or S + LMB right now

Just like for any class if you want to be bad just smash buttons, if you want to improve try to learn how to combo, you don't loose anything when awk comes out you only get more.

that's a pretty solid pve rotation though, I pretty much do the same one I just throw a shift+f and shift+q in there every once in while

So far my process is,
Herd Mobs
Obsidian Ashes,
Wheel of fortune,
Scarring Slash spam as I circle the herd. When Obsidian and Wheel of fortune come off CD, they get used on second wave aggro, repeat until everything is dead.
Kamasylvia Slash can replace Scarring but the Kamasylvia Slash doesn't create mobility. It's a good one off as it will KD mobs but Scarring seems to be my bread and butter.

I feel like a noob, what is this "Awa"? A mechanics change? Does anyone have a link to more information? It sounds great, especially if it is focused on the combat.

Sorry, its the Awakening skills/weapons we get at 56.  So once we get the magic bracelet, you have a lot of mid ranged attacks to use. And people say you only use a couple of sword skills at that point.  At least for PVE.

I basically just stand still and shift space until all the mobs are right there. Shift e, shift f, shift q, the keybind only explosion skill and shift f again. Or anything in there until they are dead. 

Dk is pretty awesome for grinding large groups TONS of aoe.

I almost don't even use the sword skills

Mostly I've been using Sudden Attack into Up+F, F, F, Space, Shift+RMB, Shift+F, maybe toss in a Shift+LMB and Shift+Q(if i need mana) and occasionally use the nuke for huge mobs. There's a lot of potential for dark knight, but I'm not even sure I'm using her properly I haven't really found much of a use for E(the mark) but we'll learn as we go. I just feel like I'm mashing button like too much without really knowing what's happening. xD

I'm confused too. Can somebody write down the best PVE combos, with skill names too, and explain it like I'm 5 years old

A tip. Don't use shift F when mobs are down (after down RMB) because you won't use the floating + air attack.

After down RMB I would use shift LMB (down attack + mark effect).

F F Space > Shift F > S+LMB > Lunacy of vedir > Shift Q > Shift F > Shift LMB if shit is not dead by then.

I just use the hell out of F.

W+F, hold F for all the F'n goodness, then shift+F, most things are dead except for strong/elite mobs by then.

Could throw in a spacebar here and there.  I don't want to get any rotation into muscle memory just yet, since it'll all change with awakened weapons.

hold F and W+F thats all you really need... throw in the occasional down+LMB

every other skill is just extra

thanks all, i got some practice this morning.

Added Lunacy of Vedir and Corrupt ground to the main rotation. Experimenting with some other skills suggested too. Mobs are dying a bit too fast to worry about getting to fancy just yet.  Too bad Vedirs Dogma is useless, it seemed like a neat idea.

My pve combo is normally Shift + E, W + F, FF(for the as increase), Shift + F, then either Shift + Q (Especially if your mp or hp is low and you have it maxed) or the 100 percent skill in order to get down attack damage from Shift + F. By that time Shift + F should be up again if needed. 

So far in pvp i noticed that the engage is similar but if you do knock them down you want to go right into either a combo with many down attacks ( 100 percent ect ) Or you can try to Shift + Left, Shift + F just for pure damage potential. In pvp we seem to dip in lay down damage dip out then re~engage (using w f or our invis to finish them off.)

I would still go about practicing pvp combos in pve so grinding is not a total waste of time. Especially so you get a feel for mana management that way when we do get awakening you will have a better feel for what the non awaken skills you use will consume should you need to use them vs particular classes.

From what i understand the skills you keep in awaken are:

Shift Q, W +F, Shift F, Shift Left, Dashes, And the pvp skills to the right side of the skill tree.... Though im still not totally sure since i never really see people using them in pvp after awaken in videos....

Hope this essay was some sort of helpful =.="

thanks, especially the "skills you keep in awaken" thats perfect. 

I normally practice PVP skills in PVE. however ive learned that over time you dont even use a lot stuff, so it was a waste of limited time. It was different when we played non-awakened for several months. But if its only a month or two, rather focus on what sticks around.

Thanks

Even if you dont "always use them" I find its good to get the muscle memory especially on skills that you use more for utility purposes that could help versus specific classes. [ shift q for stun, w f for mobility and float/ kd] regardless of how "good" awakening is/ will be on its own.

So, many of you seem to think we are getting awakening soon, i havent heard this, the last thing i recall hearing was it may be 3 months after class release (though that couldve been KR), but you all seem sure its coming soonTM.  So where you all heard this? And when is it scheduled for?

Ive been using; W+F, F F, Sp+F, Sh+F, Sh+RMB, Sh+Q, Sh+LMB, S+LMB, S+RMB, and using Lunacy of Vedir (hotbar only) when Black Spirit Rage was at 100%, using E periodically if marks are applied but Sh+Q is on cooldown

Cant remember if thats the exact order i use them in, i tend to not use my Down Attacks or Air attacks if the mob  are already on their arses, im currently still at 49.9 and farming skillpoints.  Im doing this at Sausans, which is immense fun, cant be PK'd cant be KB'd, i dont try to get in peoples ways in fact im staying around the edges and out of the way, but its still fun to watch them come running over to kill me then realising they cant, and of course if they then get rude etc i DO make sure i get in their way or farm "their" mobs. Im killing mobs quicker than some of these guys and im at 10-7ap 258dp

I hadnt planned to play DK, or i'd have gotten some gear ready, but its fun and now im not sure if to stick with it or not

I think they gave a certain period of time for when kamasylvia would be released [ middle to end of march ] and the awakening comes with the release of kamasylvia. Or at least I believe that is where the time frame is coming from.
