  • I think nightfall was a double edged sword. It brought a lot of really good and bad aspects to the game. I agree that actual rune crafting could use a fix or two but the rune trees itself brought some awesome aspects to the game. The fact that you can tap into another tree even if it just more skill effect is such an…
  • I agree 100% prots are soo beast.
  • Of first off Defense doesn't just go by itself. Defense only migates base damage which is only 1/3 of the fight in PvP. You need high defense to counter the base attack, high resist to counter the elemental attack, and high crit dodge/crit defense to counter the peak damage. Having all three balanced will migate most…
  • With 1500 base defense it will scale well past 1800 almost 1900 (which is quite a bit of defense) and 30% of that towards your heavy hitters AND your retal aura makes quite the difference. A lot more of a difference than 20% to your attack. When it comes to taking out priests in the arena it's all about timing. The second…
  • 1. Considering later down the line entrench takes 30% of your defense and uses any amount of defense increase would help. This is def useful. 2. If you arena a lot you will find that edge sins are what most sins usually go. It's a very useful to have IF YOU PLAN ON DOING ARENA which is what i said. 3. Having that extra 15…
  • Oh and lets not forget that our mass taunt also reduces acc by 90 so if your partied with a dark vamp that is high eva builds that just makes them even better. So on top of attacking, debuffing, and damage reduction..we can also be good support. Not to mention that our RP heals giving us a second wind and Entrench makes…
  • Actually not at all. If you are in a 3v3 situation with a good team than you don't need to ignored. With high resist and a good crowd control fighting along with you and of course a healer a prot will do just fine arena. I'm on the storm server and i got against sins, wars, and dark vamps all the time who are really nicely…
  • Ok I see a lot of things wrong with this builds. I don't mean to be an **** about it but there are some fine points you are missing here. I will state it all as clearly as I can. First off, Source of Recovery is no where near as good as code of taunt considering the amount of hp you get back doesn't put into account the hp…
  • Actually i have never cash shopped and I bring down just about every class in arena. I'm an attack based prot with the trev set 9/12 with all lvl 3 gems. (rage, sol, blood) I put money into crit dodge, masteries, and resist. I have a 2300+ 3v3 score and 2k+ 6v6 score and i get the most kills out of my team. So I don't…
  • yet I continue to get runs AND go to pvp when I want? I don't get complaints. I wouldn't call that useless.
  • Hard smash gets down to a 1 sec CD and you have to throw it in inbetween the cool downs of CS, EP, and Upheavel. It's a great filler and with that diamond talent it starts to hit really hard. The talent maxes out at 10% more bonus dmg and 100% masteries counted as dmg. That makes it a hard hitting skill that you can spam…
  • Defense is not useless at all. Defense with a mix of crit dodge is actually a really deadly combo. i peak at almost 1900 defense on my prot and it def does make a difference. For anyone who is saying that they can ' tank' simply cause they can take hits doesn't understand tanking. Tanking is not about taking hits, it's…
  • Just wanted to add my opinion as a marble protector. As annoying as it is to duel water bards they aren't that OP. If they aren't pure EVA based than all you have to do is time your moves. While regular stuns don't work the racial stun for prots still works i believe. Most bards are insanely squishy and they go down fast.…
  • Yea i altered my rotation a bit to mess around with the cast times. I use my threat because it reduces dmg and eva. So throwing hard smash in more (if your marble with the some diamond you have that talent that increases it dmg by a lot) so that is spammable every 1st and 3rd skill in the rotation. That along with retal…
  • And yes Hulk, i see you all the time. =P Just sayin..this is Fakie. XD
  • But your forgetting about earth pen 2 which is one of the hardest hitting skills in the game. I am still rocking 70 gear and i am sure with 75+ gear i will have around the same attack or more and i have take people down. Just today i was doing 6v6 and was taking down a party who had lvl 2 wings. Just goes to show that the…
  • oh yea don't forget about the party speed buff, stuns, disarms for pvp, and aoe slows which get really dirty later on. Yea we don't bring shiit to the party. -.-
  • A self heal? Are you serious? Prots don't need the self heal at all. With the defense buff, healing aura (which helps the entire party A LOT), and retal aura if need be (for mobs and pvp) the prots bring a lot to the party. They bring stablilty to the party which no other class can do that. If you go attack based they even…
  • You my friend are a ****ing boss.
  • I have talked to plenty of priest who say that healing a prot is way easier. With the damage reduction and the healing aura it just makes life easier for them. They don't have to concentrate as hard. The reason warriors are built with so much hp is because they lack damage reduction and the high defense. I'm sorry but an…
  • I am a 76 prot and i would love to see someone in this game out tank me. Just because a class can simply take hits and dish out DPS doesn't make them a tank. Prots have a really good defense buff, with retal aura and healing aura (helping to effect party in beneficial ways), and the damage reduction (making us easier to…
  • Once you get retal aura that all changes. Retal aura is like a consistent DoT and it hurts in pvp. Earth Pen 2 does A LOT of damage. You don't need the quick dps. I've hit 11 or 12k on players just with EP2. You just have to know how to gear and play your class.
  • Why should there be compensation for something that was extra to begin with? If your gonna quit because there isn't an easy way to level than so be it. Leave! End game is supposed to be slow and hard to get. Your supposed to actually achieve it. They make it so easy to level right now that it's crazy. Too many people are…
  • Actually if you go attack based marble your attack is epic. Go with earth attack and regular attack. It actually helps you hold aggro on top of your attack being awesome for your clase. Prots get a majority of their damage from base damage so you need that up. The bonus aggro also comes from damage so it's a win:win.
  • Ok, i have this argument all the time. Prots are one of the most OP classes in this game if played and geared right. You actually have to to go attack based if you want to go hold good aggro in this game with a prot. Even as marble. I am a 74 prot with a gem set up of rage, blood, and sol. I concentrate on earth attack,…
  • LMAO you my friend are dumb. Prots are on the most OP classes in the game. I'm an attack based marble and I **** **** up pvp and pve.
  • the diamond and granite prots got buffed up but how many granite and diamonds do you really see? At least on the storm server they are mostly marble and the marble prots got nerfed too...so i don't see the problem..
  • I took my time with this game. I got my prot to 57 and stopped rushing with it. I take my time to enjoy every aspect of the game AND work on all the jobs that come with the characters. I play in the Storm server and the server really only seems to die between 5am-11am and than it get populated again. I agree that FR and EC…
  • Botany is actually very useful because it helps you in creating pots. Taming got useless after a while and to answer your question on weapon smith/armor smith. Weapon smith is pretty easy to level up. Armor smith is a bit harder considering it takes so many points. All you have to do is farm LH and Welkin for gear to break…
