best dps style have been tuned down but isn't dead.
Yes, yes it is. There is a reason in the german daoc wiki there is an EXTRA note on specs for the reaver, that with 1.91 people do not go 50 flex anymore cause levi sucks way to hard to justify those points. The style literally died.
Furthermore the lifetap got almost twice as powerful (and reaver has 2 of them), which is completely neglected here. Those lifetaps are there to counterbalance the massive damage reduction done by the levi nerf. Imagine ANY OTHER style being nerfed by over 30% in damage, how on earth can you call that "fine"?
If they nerf levi, ok, give me what the reaver got instead. Give me the more powerful lifetaps, give me RR5, give me the ML8 abilities. Give me Overcaps and ToA bonus for a way easier time achieving cap swing speed and increased levi damage. Give me celerity combo with Paladin. Where are those?
Reaver get a nerf from the future that was based on abilities we don't have on this server.
A class should not rely on a single style .
Leviathan still remain quite powerfull. Less than before, I agree but this style revamp brings back the level 44 wich is better
Please tell me how a 2 style side chain is ‘better’? Levi is still going to be the best way to pump out dps once a target is stunned or they present their back to you. Just face it, reducing the delve to 113 from 153 is a big big nerf for dps.
Reavers became over the top on live due to being able to template magic dmg/resist pierce, being able to debuff levi damage with legendary weapons and having access to one of the most powerful ML lines. None of this is available in Phoenix so the change is completely unwarranted. You can’t implement current ‘live’ styles without looking at the bigger picture as to why they were altered in the first place.
