So don't kill me clerics...I love you all! b:cute I'm just curious because it's REALLY, REALLY bugging me! b:cry
So I was super happy when I first got bramble 'cause hey there's a buff I can use on my buddies right? And I randomly buffed people I ran into, until a high level cleric in my faction told me that brambling a cleric is about the worst thing I could have done because it lowers their already low defense (gotta love those squishies though).
Do anyone (you) know why? Because the skill descript on bramble only says that it "Returns __ % of melee damage to attackers. Lasts 10 minutes." Doesn't mention anything about affecting defense, whether increasing (a big myth-a duh read the skill description) or decreasing it (?another myth? not in the description?)
Is it because of some cleric buff? (veno's my main and I've never played cleric) But if it was one of those, wouldn't the same apply to ALL other class characters after they recieve the cleric buffs?
If it's not some cleric buff then is it something unique about the clerics themselves? But if it has to do with their gear...well aren't other character's squishy? I'm a LA veno but a lot are arcane so they're pretty squishy too...
