    Default Flamespear > Range Classes

    Got to test Warrior, Champion/Riftblade. Got Flamespear (ranged attack) and went into Warfront, could not believe that no one stands a chance, healers get ***** and whats funny Rogues MM/Ranger who are ranged attackers get ***** by a 2hander warrior spaming Flamespear!

    I don't get it, what am I missing?

    It's called imbalanced.

    This is why I switched from my 32 MM / ranger to try out a warrior. a lvl 30 war spamming flamespear + with thier snare and bull rush, Armor and HP. Totally dominated always. even when the warrior got close to Melee me, all he did was use flamespear.

    Flamespear > rogue ranged users

    Dont worry, in the next patch warriors get totally nerfed

    From the next patch notes:

    * Flamespear: No longer has a damage over time component and had its damage values updated.



    So no more flamespear spamming riftblades, now you actually have to use other skillz in your rotation to dish out good dps.

    Only, damage altered could mean direct damage altered upwards to make up for the DoT. Along iwth the fact that freeze armour literally ****s any melee, cast that and walk backwards spamming off your forks and you still win without trying.

    If they increased the damage it would say:

    * Flamespear: No longer has a damage over time component and had its damage updated acordingly.

    But is says:

    * Flamespear: No longer has a damage over time component and had its damage values updated.

    Im pretty sure the dmg also got a nerf

    Nah I agree with cyber, the wording on that is still fairly ambiguous as to whether they are compensating for the removal of the dot OR rather a flat nerf to its overall damage. If they are just removing the dot component while buffing the frontload damage then we will still have the exact same problem, i.e. riftblades spamming flamespear....One can only hope that its simply a nerf overall, and not a minor adjustment.

    Default QQ won

    No thats def a nerf since cry babies that don't really know how to play the class won another battle. The fact that with a decent weapon searing strike will come out ahead skipped everyones atention (aka omg I'm leveling and a I can't kite/snare a warrior) and that people still haven't really been too organized about how to focus/kite/dispell.

    Riftblade is so easy to do insane damage with, much more than mages, so it's pretty much to be expected.

    I did so insane damage by using 2-3 abilities, compared to my inquisitor where I have to use about 7-8 just to do damage and then it's way below my lolblade.

    Inq? 7-8 abilitys?!
    Apply dots - spam bolt of justice - whait for proc - drop depravity.
    At lv 31 add circle of oblivion as a channel.
    Nothing new and boring - 4 ability caster class.
    Where are other 4 you used may i ask?
    Of cource i can make a suggestion you used snare-excommunication and buff-nerf of death damage.
    But if you use RB as spam-spear class - don`t think so.

    I might actually have made an understatement before. I think it's closer to 9 or 10 for maximum DPS potentiel. I am not including things like knockback, slows, etc

    Every game has a 1 button spammer class. But only bads will use only 1 button and they will be beaten easily.
