They just have to find a new pet, so they can harass expers again
Yup. The only way a minstrel loses any fight, really, is by overcommitting, even with the pet changes.
By contrast, mentalist is one of the least successful solo classes on this server. It's really bizarre that Sek made that comparison in the context of soloing. Makes no sense at all.
A SM scared of Minstrel that claim most of his kills by lurking within 50 feets of dock/bridge range applying the MOC 5/Purge engagement rule has an opinion.
Yes i may have encountered your SM once but i probably didn't have SOS up.
There are players that are driven by fear, most of the time unfounded, willing to engage only when given a royal flush while other are doing the best they can with a simple pair.
DAOC is a great competitive videogame yet most of your comments are delusional.
You are complaining about a class because it has last speed ? You would kill any yellow farmer if given the opportunity, do not be an hypocrite ( if only you could move out of CK range).
You are complaining about a class because it has SOS ? Let's talk about vanish, MOC and so many more RAs then.
Red pet ? they deal way less damage than epic yellowish mobs. In fact Minstrel is probably the less powerful class over the rank, its RAS are so limited that originally you were often relying on rank to charm better pets.
Solo related class ? Given your admiration to SOS since you judge a class by its ability to survive i would say that Minstrel on phoenix is outclassed by Skald, Shaman, Necro, Thane, Champion, Assassin's classes and most MOC caster related classes.
I do prefer being outnumbered on open fray while being given a chance to success or fail trying, this is my dope. Yes you can defeat a 4-5+ players with a minstrel if they come 1by1 even more as duo/trio but only because you are granted with average CC and damage facing casual players, you would do the same if not better on bard/ment, skald/sham or healer and several more combinations.
Most players just log on to join a zerg rather than attempting to duo/trio/small and play accordingly to the ongoing action.
It's common to see 2-3 BG of 80 players out and no solo up to fg action through the entire NF therefore most of the community do not truly know how to deal with x or y class when playing out of BG safety, not aware they were capable of being as good as anyone else.
Trust your class, improve with it, take some risk and have fun, this is DAOC.
