I've been playing a TR for 10 months on PS4, pretty much since the game came out. I'm at 3550 and there is a double RP weekend next week. The entire time I've been playing this game I struggle with getting 1-shot by things. It's horrible, I couldn't even do Orcus until I was 2900 because whenever he raised his arms his AOE would 1-shot me.
Now that I've passed that, I'm getting the same problem with MSVA. If I can make it past the first phase army then I hold my own on the dps charts, but the mobs just murder me most of the time and then I'm defeated. I've been reading the forums here a lot and people seem to be using deflect and lifesteal but I don't know how that even works.
Lifesteal is useless if you are at 100% or at 0% life. Deflect is the same thing, you only have a % chance to survive any given hit. Why does it sound like no one else has a problem with getting defeated in the first 10 seconds of a bossfight? I've tried using impossible to catch, but even that doesn't always save me because of it's glitchiness.
