Riding the Wind

16 posts in this topic

Posted

hey is anyone using this skill? I was messing around and testing all skills, but when you pick "Riding the wind" (double jump) I didnt find a way to spam shotgun anymore. could only use it after a wotw one time, then if you press LMB you continue with the double jump skill... its really cool but kinda useless? someone found a way to use it without making shotgun non spammable?

This statement is correct. You can use the riding the wind effect if you take Extreme Evasive Shot and do not take Riding the Wind.

You can't hold space anymore to spam shotgun if you take riding the wind.

You need to time and press it at the right time, then you won't jump around like a clown :D

I reseted the skill instantly.

In the skill description is says that "Riding the Wind" should activate when you use SPACE and A or D while in the AIR. It should not activate when you press SPACE on the ground. I feel like riding the wind interfering with shotgun must be some kind of unintended glitch. 

From a design standpoint, why would they make a skill as fun as "Riding the Wind"  which adds so much mobility and goes so well with the theme of rangers, only to make it unusable because no one in their right mind would give up the most effective way to activate shotgun. 

the skills interfere with each other. This should be fixed :D

There is more than just one way to cast a skill.

You can transition from Evasion Shot into Riding the Wind. Since the side step after each U/SP:CW is Evasion Shot, you simply use one of the ways to cast Riding the Wind.

You can also still hold down spacebar to cast U/SP:CW, just need to tap WASD then.

the problem is that we DO NOT want to cast riding the wind, we want to cast shotgun. Riding the wind Directly overtakes the command. If you press space and A or D u will use riding the wind regardless of you being in the air or not. 

Can u see how this is rather annoying? No wonder no one even uses this, for such a cool skill that gives us so much mobility no one recommends it. 

If only they changed it so that it only activate when you are airborne like it says in the skill description then i would 100% take this skill

No, I can't. You can use U/SP:CW regardless of Riding the Wind easily, I'm having RtW skilled ever since and it never bothered me once.

Riding the Wind is not used often as the stamina consumption is too high, it offers no iframes, we can't use it to get past player hitboxes and the only skills we can chain it into are Evasive Shot jump (which consumes even more stamina) and the arrow volley that got its damage reduced. And for mobility sake I rather use Blasting Gust cancel to move forwards/backwards.

Climbing invisible walls with it and other bullshittery things I shouldn't be doing.

Pretty sure riding the wind lets you jump twice, against EES's 1 jump after EES itself. (not 100% sure though)

Either I'm right or not, I wouldn't want it, jumping takes too much stamina.

you can cast it while  having riding the wind, but to do so you would have to let go your directional keys. Doing that after EVERY SINGLE  SHOTGUN -.- i needlessly troublesome. 

Also u can cast riding the wind from call of the  sky....and you can  cast the jump portion of ultimate evasion out of RTW so basically 

Call of the  sky > Ride the Wind > Ultimate Evasion Jump. 

and if you  have the Flow skill that lets  you do EES while in the  air you can  do 

Call of the  sky > Ride the wind > UE jump > aerial EES for even more airtime 

i can go from end to end of the  heidel arena without touching the  ground. 

Am sorry but that is -----ing amazing :P

And how is your stamina?

Honestly i haven't really done strict tests so i cant tell you exactly how much stamina it all consumes. 

However. you can initiate the call of the sky by pressing space after charging kick, since charging kick W+F doesn't consume stamina or mana you can kind of economize. 

if the stamina spent is between 400~600 then its  fine considering how much ground you cover. 

However, i feel like it shouldn't  matter anyway. Riding the Wind or doing double and triple jumps in general feel completely visceral. Like one of those HELL YEAH moments. It is a shame that maybe 1% of archers use this.

Should consume ~830 ( 250 CfS, 200 RtW and ~380 from Evasive Shot jump) stamina after those 3 skills, though I'm not sure how you chain RtW after CfS.
