I was originally going to post this on with my cleric avatar but seems the forum avatars are broken again probably due to 2 the new classes. Now we have to wait out the longest wait for our sage/demon skills, aeu/morai/aeu/primal skill books, rrr9 gear, nw r9 ring. You know what they say, the longer the wait the more better the outcome (hopefully)? b:thanks
For the meantime I am doing all my dailies in morai and primal to get that surplus of spirit from reaching boundaries as well as the primal passives. So far already reached Astral Sky 1 and level 7/7/1 passives learned thanks to UCH. Still the biggest change will have to be our skillbooks.
There is a skill which gives 400 chi over 20 seconds that only has 90 seconds cool-down! Imagine a situation where you disconnected or entered an instance that took away all your chi, well now you can ramp up as fast as a 5 APS sin auto-attacking (combine with skill spamming for an easy 25 or 30 chi gain per second).
I know other players maybe be just trying the class out for fun which I what I did at first. But then I found a huge passion for playing this class and now I plan to make this toon my new main and hopefully surpass my lv 105/105/101 rrr9+10 cleric that I farmed all last year. Even with just rr9 weapon I have to say this class already has awesome aspects. If I can reach the same base magic damage with my stormbringer I can see so much ease this toon will have. I can just run and one shot mobs left and right without the need for a stop and a lag delay to start channeling a skill in one place.
In pvp it gets even better, your target running away? Chase down and hit them still while moving. Your target closing in? Run backwards and hit them still while safely keeping a good distance. People might assume this is easy to do but controlling the camera angle, wasd keys, and hotkeys are all necessary to make the jump from a good Storm to an excellent Storm. On the ground it is fairly simple, but once you talk about aerial combat it goes from 2D to 3D. In UCH I practiced to even orbit about targets in every direction (which can **** off healers lol).
Unfortunately in most PVE instances we am taught to stand still so other melee classes don't have to chase moving mobs or bosses. Heck, I was even told to NOT use Avatar of the Storm because it "lagged" their computer... despite it dealing huge damage to bosses which allowed me to aggro over full rrr9s with just my unfinished rr9. Too bad it won't count once we PVP. I can already see endless tears and rage like "Stupid noob, stay still and fight!" But the funny truth is that is how we fight best. b:chuckle
Previous PWI mechanics told us moving and attacking could not happen simultaneously but now that tradition is broken. Sins, Barbs, BMs are probably going to be among the worse victims of stormbringers in the future since they have to deal with Purify Proc (if rrr9) as well as Reaper Form and Electrostatic Discharge. b:cute
