If anyone could enlighten me on this I would really appreciate it.
I know in CN things might be a bit different, considering that some people already have g17.5 weapons there I tend to doubt it, tho.
I mean, if you are tanky enough and play, lets say a barb or BM, they are still somewhat ok but thats also only due to the fact that most sins suck and cant properly CC.
Anyways, seeing sins one-skill killing people with cursed Jail, Elimination or even knife throw at that on selfbuffs (mostly AA/LA classes) is just getting out of hand. I experienced this myself on some of my chars and that has been dealt through a full josd sin...nothing too fancy in terms of damage potential and thats WITHOUT debuffs nor any kinda of Sparking used.
Those multihit-skills specifically disable your def-charms completely and you can pretty much say that a comparably geared sin can easily charm bypass any other LA/AA class if just the finally hit zerkcrits. Literally any single time. ONE FRIGGIN SKILL.
Now, you can go ahead and say that you can just buff up to increase your survivability and while that is true...you are going to have a hard time killing a sin if he does the same. Simply no other class cept for maybe Duskblades have enough CC/Speed/Damage to kill a maxbuffed sin especially if they are josd sharded. While tidal is up? Forget it. A 30 second frame through skills, apo, stealth+ulti and genie to kill a sin is just excruciating especially if its a good player then it becomes literally impossible. Sins however still deal enough damage to kill even the tankiest targets with an efficient use of CC and Debuffs.
While I know most people dont care for 1v1 I gotta say that this doesnt only affect 1v1 scenarios. Sins also have a massive upperhand in mass-PvP. When a single deity-sharded sin needs 6+ endgame people to get killed solely cause no CC can stop him from running away then, in all honesty, something is terribly wrong. I dare to imagine a 80 Def lvl g17.5 weapon with purify spell on a sin. Can't disarm, can't CC, can't debuff and if you do has a chance to break free with max speed on potentially 200+ def lvl and max buffs. There is only one word for that: Stupidity.
IS CN going to perform any kind of nerfing, that is neccessary since ages, in the recent future? NO! They will make sins even stronger. I can't stop shaking my head. Seriously.
Anyone please explain to me how they can break this class more and more. While our versions are different...they still have an equivalent power-creep. The devs can't really be that dumb to boost up different classes just because a majority of the players could be fighting max geared players with r8r gears. How can they disregard gear difference that much..in a game like this.
Well, I came to a point in which I won't consider 1v1ing sins anymore on all my chars cept my Barb. With the barb...the sin at least has to be somewhat good-ish to land a kill, even if he outgears me. Why would any other class bother? Getting randomly oneshot for no reason at all is no fun. No fun at all. However, I can imagine that being even worse for all those 1v1-only sins out there since the status sins are on atm takes out any challenge for them whatsoever. Poor sins. Good for all those pride-less players that just wanna get kills in at all cost.
I don't expect this post to change anything, just wanna hear about fellow players how they think about this sin-situation at this point of the game.
