    Default The abused by bosses melee cry corner.

    Hello.
    I play a BM/Champ warrior and I just wanted a place where all the, by the game hated, melee could come to cry.
    Sometimes the ******** this game throws at us is redicolous. Front cleave, back cleaves, "I turn around to cast a fireball at the ranged folks and instant cleave after each one sitll turned to you huahuehue", "hey guy
    have some of my aoe slowing plus instant cast AoE that kills you in 2 second", Players: "Just watch out for the X, Y and the Z.. Oh and the O as well" continued by "omfg why it die so slow!???".

    Hey you downed a boss? Omg! And it droped DPS plate!?!? holy **** yes! Wait, what's that? It has a lower amount of Endurance then you green chest? AWESOME! At least it has more armor against the magical attacks and the boss critcleaves, charge, punts, bashes, smashes, melee aoe, melee kil ability...

    EDIT: I forgot about my pet! **** yeah pet classes! BAMM IT'S D:E.A.D! DEAD, well I'll jsut resummon it, brb 10 sec..

    (PS: I just needed to vent and get called bad by ranged players..)

    Shouldn't you be wearing leather? Dexterity and phys crit is all that matters.

    As for bosses, you ever try and attack from the side? This game isn't a side scroller with only 2 directions to attack from.

    I agree. Melee gets screwed bad in Rift. 75% of the bosses are very melee unfriendly.
    AoEs, PBAoE, cleaves, anti-melee shields, fear, DoTs, bombs, etc. Life of a melee player is tough.

    Scarn is the most melee unfriendly fight in the game. Double lash (unless it was fixed can hit you when you on his side near his head.

    Boss #5 in IT is the one that pisses me off the most as melee. Hey, I'mma do a 3k 360 cleave that disarms you, followed by a 2k 360 chain hit, followed by slowing you, better hope your healer cleanses that slow LOL.

    I'm sure you've done that for yourself... not.

    I have decent gear, a good spec, and average around 800. Those with 1200 dps are in full raid gear with epic 2handers.

    Also, if warrior single target DPS gets nerfed to be equivalent to rogue or mage single target DPS there will be no reason to ever use warrior DPS for anything, ever, as this game is so melee unfriendly.

    So you use your bad gear as an argument for pulling bad DPS?

    QQ more all of you. You can play melee just fine in almost every single fight in this game.

    Melee is horrible at the moment in boss encounters, yeah DPS is good but we die a fair bit.

    Suppose there will be more tanks in LFD though! /weak smile
