Re: Hero CS spec input

50 cs 50 shield 6 blade rest parry...

but u need to switch shield / cs in battle and the 6 blade just for the taunt...
And 50 shield because of 50 shield style 10 sec stun and high def penalty. Oh and ofc when u want to stun a target 50 cs basespec give cap weaponskill while 42 give less.

Up to you
A: i want this because Z have it to and i have it not
B: You have it
A: Yeah, but i have not the same
B: yeah, but this variance is because of Y
A: Yeah, but ... but... <silence>
So annoying. Problem is, A change hourwise randomly...

Re: Hero CS spec input

I think that you cannot go wrong with 50 cs and 42 shield.

I don't see a good reason to go to 50 shield.

How ever much blades/pierce and parry is up to you to fit your play style.

I'm not a big fan of parry. I mean how many times will you have a spear out between swings? Most will swing and swap out for shield immediately for max defense between swings or to go slam something else.

So I'm in favor of 39slash, 42shield, 50cs and 6 parry.

I’m not a big fan of swapping between every swing, personally I think it’s bad design allowing it with no penalties.
But wouldn’t you want high parry rate for cs reactionaries ?

Sure, if that's how you want to play.

I think the core spec should be 50cs and 42shield and spec slash/pierce + parry on how you want to play.

I get a shield out as soon as I can so the parry styles in cs are not critical to me.

sometimes, it's better to have a root that last 10s and give space to your mage than nothing.

I'd agree, but in every instance of a tank being rooted and snare immune I've ever experienced, the end result is the tank being bitched at for "not doing your job."

Re: Hero CS spec input

CS line is far better after changes coming up, I’d like to get option of slash spear though, same as hunters have option.

It’s a shame no other hib class has the cs choice.
