The FM is allways nerved or dont get any improvements like the other chars. As a FM you dont have a chance to be on top in the Tower. Why you guys dont change that? You can see the ranking in Mushin’s Tower. Makes no sence for me…thought FM is a DD…cant see that anymore. At the moment the FM is absolutly useless.

about time summs get nerfed. brain dead trigger happy lyns.
All is left is fms.

Summoner
Guest

wow they made summoner garbage

TDTD
Guest

That big nerf on summoner.. Wish i could change the class.

Blademaster is Shit
Guest

Blademaster bleibt ja genauso BESCHISSEN wie vorher im PVP das einzige was an der drecks Klasse geändert wird ist sein PVE verhalten, wie kann NCFail nur so behindert sein und diese klasse immer noch so scheiße lassen mit 1 escape skill während andere 3-4 haben hahahahah drecks klasse bleibt und wird immer scheiße bleiben, aber gib Assassin einen 300% DMG buff sowas brüchte Blademaster ja garnicht kann ja seine Skills alle 60 sec machen im vergleich zum assa oder anderen kmlassen jede sekunde

Ist er nicht ;)
Guest

Na klar^^ Und weil die Klasse ja sooo “beschissen” ist, ist sie gerade in der aktuellen Season (Tournament) in Korea Platz 1 geworden letzte Woche. 🙂 Und jetzt kommts: Der Gegner war Assa und hat jämmerlich verloren. PS: Jede Klasse hat nur 1 Escapeskill. Und als BM hast sogar noch einen zusätzlichen Escape (wenn du ihn denn skillst) um aus Grabs oder dergleichen zu kommen, nicht so wie andere Klassen. VIelleicht übst du einfach noch ein wenig, statt hier zu ragen wie so ein “Hatekiddie”, der keine Ahnung hat.

I see that have a lot to translate, will continue translating and bringing news?

what I’ve seen looks Summoner very badly or is just my impression?

Nowaki
Guest

Warlock
– Tier 3 Stage 1: cannot apply Stun combo

Stage 1 doesnt have any joint CC, stage 2 Does

Nowaki
Guest

Imprison (3) *

nattya

good changes, do not mind

ohhhhbeeee
Guest

I don’t see the justification for BDs to have an 18sec cd on their q/e when you look at other classes especially BMs. Thought for sure they’ll keep the reduced cd.

jonas
Guest

they never undid the changes, its still 12 seconds

ohhhhbeeee
Guest

oh he must not be done updating changes then since I only see the one change for BD right now.

captmactavit

SF is going to surpass FM on DPS term.

Torial
Guest

It seems that they are adding new HM skills, looking how they changed Warlock’s Tier 5 on Imprison, which is an HM skill we don’t have yet.

Tenah
Guest

What did i miss that where did u read that? and what is Soul Rush i dont get it.

Nowaki
Guest

Soul Rush is the new skill for Grabbed Enemies

Radeyz

Evade (SS)
– Tier 3 Stage 1: Escape from Frost Prison

I think this is supposed to be their escape on 2, not SS.

Guest
Guest

For summoners
Evade (SS)
– Tier 3 Stage 1: Escape from Frost Prison

are you sure its SS skill? for every other class it’s their respective TAB skill, but for summoners it’s a dash behind?
