    Default So I jumped this mage earlier..

    ..And here's how it went down. Being the nub I am I open with silence, as he is slightly off his pad I cross my fingers for it to go through - it does not. So the mage nukes down whoever he's already targetting, turns around, throws a fireball in my face, stuns me, and launches another two to finish me off. He took me down in approximately 8 seconds or less and there's nothing I could have done to prevent this. (The Baneful Touch was supposed to be a scourge but I've been tinkering with keybinds lately, so, yeah.) In the end he spammed his wonderful macro going: "Why do you even try."

    And to be honest I have no idea.

    Now I'm not one to complain so instead I'll ask for advice - how do you go by killing these guys, is there even a way?

    (And here's a bad screenshot of what happened, no combat chat as that didn't cross my mind at the time. And yeah, the mage had Mega Damage but I'd have been three hit either way, so that don't matter.) http://img835.imageshack.us/i/20110326194522.jpg/

    currently you cant kill him =/
    if you want to be a good rogue you should know how to choose your target:
    mages? a big no no!
    cleric? not a chance man!
    warrior? are you ****ing kidding me?
    rogues? yea they are noobs you will have no problem with them.

    seriously i think that rogue is only good at killing other rogues(well everyone is good at that =/ )

    Sounds like you totally ****ed up and used tactics that were ineffective as your opening game plan.

    Explain why this is a failure of the calling and not of you?

    I'm assuming it was a Pyromancer, so I'll tell you how I killed one.

    Open with para strike, waited for him to blink, hovered my finger around my own blink, as soon as he was gone i found him and blinked over. Stun, backstab backstab backstab - >Impale. He rooted him and ran off, waited for him to start casting, wait until its almost done, interrupt. Root broke so I started running at him, he rooted me again, so I waited AGAIN for him to start casting, waited as long as I could through his cast then BAM! Blinding powder. Keep in mind my bleeds are running their course and ticking away his hp. I knew blinding powder wouldn't last long so I waited for root to drop then slip away. Opened with jagged strike and then puncture then he stunned me. Bleeds killed him.


    Complicated enough for ya?

    Hi there. I'd like for you to point out what could have been done differently on my part, and just for the record, a) running away or b) hiding in a corner are not valid options.

    And from a pure theoretical point of view, let's say I had opened with a 20% damage increase - how do you reckon this fight would have turned out then.

    My point being, whether I had executed every ****ing bit flawlessly the endgame would have been the same.

    Actually, we'd rather you discuss your failure at reading comprehension.
    The OP stated twice that he used bad tactics, and wants to learn some GOOD ones.
    So tell him what the good ones are.

    Actually, I was just pointing out how imbalanced GoS is. I'm not holding my breath for any knowledge on how counter it, as there is none.

    thats why u need slip away nothing wrong with running away at a fail attemp lol. If u are into melee u need to use all ur dots so stealth open with jappgged strike and puncture and put points into physical truma they will just die from dots while u hit ur slip away stun her from stealth(paralizing strike) if needed.

    OP, you may want to try posting your build so that people can actually respond with useful information on good tactics.
