Most underrated Seeker skill?

I thought to make a thread for every class and ask you folks...

Which is the most underrated skill amongst your class? The kind of skill, that other players of your class dont really seem to appreciate, at least not most of them, but you've found a nice use for it.

You could also mention why you personally like this skill and why others do not favor it so much. Both PvE and PvP scenarios are welcomed.

    Archangels.

    'Cause in PVE that crit boost ish so effin nice, as well as they do nice damage and don't really die that easily as some think they do. Very well used spark.

    Bloodthirsty blitz is underrated a lot in what i see on my server. In pvp, its a decent aoe that deal moderate damage ( or high with a zerk) in a aoe, nice when surrounded and it heal you for a flat 20%, wish is 5,4k to me when im full buff. For pve, it will tear off aggro from who has it and give it to me, even if the person outDD me decently, and ill end up holding it for a bit. Quite good to catch a group of mobs or to tank a boss that goes on a rampage or something along ( fsp last boss Frenzy for example)

    I would have to say Soul Shatter. I've lost count on how many squads I've been on with other seekers that never cast it on a boss even when I say I will cast it first or second (once the first wears off)

    It makes things a lot easier with glass cannons that can whomp the hell out of a boss when sparked

    Parchblade dance , it has gnarly potential dudes it's overlooked because the proc rate is low, and that would still hold true cept the new skills like wind blade and glow blade on a Spam the proc shows up quite a bit since u are spamming for results of 3 stances instead of just 1 meaning that a person can rapidly inflict status effects on somebody, see I kept the old parchblade and use wind blade and glow blade while using heartseeker to proc the immoblize, it will pick either skill parch or immoblize and depending on what I hit the person with I'll rush them and stun with parch or back up and kite until glow let's me knock weapon outta their hands switch to soul to debuff, before they get their weapon back, then void step back to parch to use wind to over write soul sever def lvs and weapon switch sac slash , fortify qpq., rewinding gesture , frenzy, blade ion affinty ,and it's generally over by then, if not before that the PARCH has been helping deal with tidal sin or barb lock when I splash some occult ice in the combo it's not a insane like the new skills everybody else got but it's so old school nobody really expects somebody to break it out and then work.

    I'd have to say Archangels of Justice/Angels of Justice

    A lot of people don't seem to use them that much (atleast on RT they seem almost none existent save for mine) even though they're fairly strong and have some useful debuffs, also the upgrade to archangels changes the spark from 2 sparks to only 1 meaning it's possible to triple spark, summon them ( then use white tea/genie chi skill) and edge blur/vortex

    Some mega powered combos with them, and they can mostly solo mobs. Best part is the aoe skill that can stun and does magic damage...Can cause so much chaos in pvp b:laugh

    Even the lv80 version are pretty powerful, if not atleast good for defense or agroing mobs away in a pinch

    I'll go with bloodthirsty.

    It creates a massive amount of aggro, heals you, and is a ranged aoe. For the chi cost, its worth it.

    Most seekers who have it underestimate it sadly.

    Anything that isn't Vortex or Auto-Attack. Especially the debuffs. Most seekers don't debuff.

    b:surrender Problem is demon seeker on DW barely exist and i can only count 1 that can do remotely anything. Beside that, they do not use their demon bonus correctly at all

    The one issue I have with demon unfetter is that if i'm stunned, I can't use it to purify the stun.

    As for the most underrated skills, I'd go with the stances that aren't soulsever, I see it used more than any other stance and it's typically never actually activated because people go straight into vortex.

    thats why primal skills have the stance merge, to make it easier for seeker to kick themself into using them XD

    Blade Affinity - At least on my server only a handful out of many seekers realize its terrifying power.
    Ion Spike - That reduction in resistance is great! Its good to get in the habit of switching out of Soulsever so the proc chance is better (no stance is best).
    Sacrificial Slash+Quid Pro Quo - If you don't have them I highly recommend them, especially the primal versions which will save you a lot of time.

    Most of the skills in this post I agree with as well, except for soul shatter which is used all the time even when there are no Earth and Fire skill users around.

    I feel like Parchedblade Dance is underrated. The stance from it is pretty nice and being able to stun groups of mobs is always fun and helps out.

    I personally think Devour is a really nice skill, Barbs don't use it much because of the chi cost but It's not too much when you chain it up in a nice combo. I mean it lowers the attack lvl, the physical defense by a lot, also draws aggro, so it's like a flesh ream that uses 15 more chi, but gives the opponent some awesome debuffs.

    on pve, soul shatter and mind shatter, while on pvp... is a hard one, im really dated, but back in the day it was the angels, they are great on pve too, but on pvp gives a stun, then a crit boost i think is an amazing skill underrated by its chi consuption mainly

    Pvp wise I gotta say Parchedblade... sure it can be a pain when it doesn't proc but then it becomes awesome when it does, especially in NW. Catch a bunch of those people chasing the flag into your aoe stun and they're practically dead :>.

    Definitely.

    And I've been saying it since Genesis release and I'll keep saying it: Edged Blur would make for an awesome aggro tool if it generated enmity.

    I'd have to underrated skills in pvp would be the shatters and Blitz.
    Obviously the shatters don't -work- in pvp, but they do give you a nice 30 chi, and then 20 chi every 15 seconds. Primal version is 25 chi every 15 seconds for a low cast time.
    And like previously stated, Blitz heals 20% hp, can be a hell of a life saver in plenty of situations, and even knock of some squishies with a zerk crit.

    why would you use shatters on people for chi when the cast time is not that fast and youd get same amount of chi by just spamming the 3 basic skills. Like, using them is just wasting time to gain chi where you can get same amoutn while doing damage and having better chance at killing.

    b:surrender theres a reason those thing are for pve only, and using them for chi is just wasted time in a fight

    Yup, this one. If you are PvE in a squad, Edged Blur bangs out damage while you are ensuring the debuffs are constantly up on the boss (Northern Sky Waltz . . . .).
