Combos? Do we have combos? What is a combo?


54 posts in this topic

According to the Wizard class guide on Black Desert Foundry we have "complex combos"

Now this got me thinking, unless I've missed something severely, do we even have combos as the other classes has combos?

The only "combo" I can think of is Fireball -> Explosion -> Lightning -> Residual Lightning - Is this even a valid combo? Does this count as a combo?

What does BDO Foundry mean with complex combos?

Another question: Is there a damage boost for simply chaining skills together in a particular order? Or is a combo merely making use of the for example downed state with Fireball (enemy get knocked down) -> Lightning?

Oh we have a ton of combos. It doesn't take much research to find them, just try to look into them.

i mean depends on what they mean by combos i guess...i mean S + lmb for fire ball and such (basicly casting spells) might be what they mean.

Damn i forgot xD Well, here's some basic PvE combos. Chain Lightning+Lightning Storm+Thunderbolt+Lightning Residue is a really common one.

For 1v1 PvP we need to spam Freeze and then any lightning spell, would prefer Thunderbolt myself. And Healing Pharos, max lvl of that heals 90% HP back to you.

Those are few basic ones for you or something.

Thx, incidentally it's not actually a joke.  I'm lv 27 with lv 3 dagger stab right now.  You bet your ass when I'm 50 it'll be maxed and you'll see me going around shanking people.

The only combos I can think of would be moves that take advantage of status effects. Fireball causes knockdown and lightning is a down attack. Earths Response causes floating so we can follow up with.... oh wait, there isnt an air attack. Not really seeing too much in the way combos are referred to for other classes.

I've never found anything official, but from doing alot of dueling I know some spells roll off one another alot smoother than others for e.g Freeze > Residual > Multi arrow.

Don't overlook multi arrow, it's damage is medium but it's instant so you can capitalize on your burst with it in pvp.

Cool, lots of answers :)

A reply I got on reddit told me a secret combo is when you do certain skills in a "secret" chain and they get cast more quickly then not doing them on this secret chain. This I did not know but I can see some of you here saying this is the case as well.

"complex combos"

is the same as 

"combos"

Combinations.

Complex combos would mean more than one combo and in an nonstandard way.

There is no secret combo, the reddit person lied to you.

It is basically the dictionary definition of the terms, man, seriously.

We as wizards go around and just, lightning + residual - mostly...or we have these few spells we use, very often.

A complex combo is not this, it is a series of combos, IMO, that one would probably execute on bosses or PvP.

One that utilizes ALL your spells.

Example;

sages + meteor + teleport + lightning+residual + blizzard + healing aura/lighthouse + speedspell + other buffs.

This is a complex combo.

Actually there are secret combos. It's just that our definition of them is misunderstood. A secret combo is not some combination of skills that does something amazing we've never seen before. It's actually just combinations that cancel the animations of our moves so that we can cast quicker. Take for example the annoying animation to bring out your weapon before you can finally start casting. We can negate this in different ways such as teleporting, or Lightning. That's why the Lighting Chain Meteor combo is a secret combo, because used with Sage's Memory you are canceling the casting animation.

Well, the secret combos is what is commonly called animation canceling then :)

Good for us to use but I just feel it's bad coding myself, but they are nice so I have no issues with them.

After you have casted Meteor, you can cast Chain Lightning instantly. That's a secret combo :P

YES to skill cancelling animations, casting 2 spells at once and casting spells even when on cd,

Its not just the (order of) buttons you press but also the skill rank (not always max)

A SECRET is a SECRET until someone Blabs :D
