Why do high level zerkers use Beastly Wind Slash?


8 posts in this topic

Posted

I've been playing zerker since launch, and recently came back into the game. I have started watching high level zerkers in awakening pvp to try and get a feel for how to use the awakening. I've noticed two major things.

 

1. I have noticed that the basic play style of zerker hasn't changed much since the awakening got released besides the awakening just allowing you to make more opportunities to start your grab chain.

2. I have also noticed that after every grab they use BWS.

The first change I am actually very happy with since I love the core play style of the class. However the second change confuses me a lot. When I played zerker before taking a break I found that the best combo to use in between grabs in a grab combo was Undertaker>Dual FD>FS(Using Flow: Final Strike)>Next grab. However I have not seen any zerker in any of the videos that I have watched use this combo and I can't figure out the reason why.

BWS deals more dmg then FD-FS combo , when you are lvl 59 you can use 2xBlasting it deals same dmg as BWS or even more when you have higher AP + crit buff it deals unreal dmg. Also join zerk discord lots of zerkers there since discord was made zerk forum kinda died

Personally its a good mid combo attack, i mainly use it during pvp for the buff since it gives me +5 on pvp and +5 accuracy for like 10 secs. Also when its maxed out it does a decent amount of damage. It also chains wells with the other grabs. i also find that FD takes too long for me, its less convenient in my eyes.

So overall its a pretty handy skill.

(it can also knockdown if you can hit it right)

1st: Since you said you took a break...there was a change to BWS. 
2nd: FD x2 is poop cause the accuracy is terrible and the timing can be difficult in bad server conditions.
3rd: C > blasting x2 has been chosen as combo of choice for some time now. Try it out!

BWS you will max regardless.  I still believe fd+fs deals more damage maxed out especially with triple dot, but it is very sp heavy and tough to skill up until you have over 1500 sp.  If you have the skill points to do FD+FS on your first grab, set your dots and get ap buff, then bws on 2nd grab, that should be ideal.  But like I said you are looking at over 1500 sp.

I only use BWS after a grab since im in axe stance anwyay and they are on the ground so might as well deal dmg without weapon swapping.

 

my blasting dmg seems to be kinda weak though, not sure if its because my zarka is broken right now or if im noobing something up along the way

Atm BWS is part of combo.

So: E, SPACE, BWS, C, Sludgefest or Grab, Space ecc ecc

BWS at the end of undertaker give you a faster next grab or is a faster weapon swap.

Atm i'm without guild so at lvl 60 i need to contest a lot of spots and i need also to learn fast how to crush opponents (=

FD and BWS have accuracy problems. If you aren't in a decent spot with axes (tri/tet Kzarka + bhegs + other crap) I really feel that you will have problems landing FD BWS for "full damage".

Zio, best advice would maybe watch farming zerkers and hope they get into fights on stream. otherwise you are going to have to learn by trial of fire.
