    Default Death resist > Cab

    Just made a death resist / valor sigil and put on death resist trinket etc. and cabalist become aoe fluffers that dont really hurt nearly as bad.

    Might want to do that if you're having problems with them.

    I love your creative way of telling others to L2P.

    So what you're saying is... every time we fight X class we switch to X sigil? Kind of hard to do when already in combat.

    Why not keep it on all the time? It has valor + death resists + the typical stats you would have. I just bought the death resists essences from the inscribed npcs and mixed with valor, put on the +20 sigil etc. and it's just overall more helpful.

    If you're NOT having a problem with cabs then dont worry about it. Was just offering it as a suggestion and what I've done that I've noticed helping.

    Or people can just complain about cabs...

    Obviously the #1 used element in PvP, by quite a ways. You should be running at least 2 death epic essences in your PvP sigil, the ones with stats you would use anyway. Slightly more optimal stats is not worth taking essences from an inferior element.

    I assume focus counters it tho.

    How much does this really help when they have focus? When Pyros were running wild i stacked full fire res but not once did i see a resist in lvl 50 pvp. To what degree it reduced their damage i can't say.

    Obviously but when 4 in a row summoned me right back over... and over... and over... and over... thats when I said ok time to see how much resists helps this and made the sigil. And if you think I'm one of those people too stupid to move out.. you've obviously never been in a warfront with me.

    maybe you guys just never read what focus does and what the actual resists do. Focus just increases chance to hit. Resists help you straight up resist a spell AND resists the amount of damage you take. So, let them have all the focus they have, you will still be able to mitigate the damage.

    I seriously totally agree with OP.

    But expecting people to realize the school of a spell and then to actually have to work to gain mitigation against that school (especially since it repeatedly kills you) is beyond the scope of most players' graspability.

    You can thank WoW for this trend. Remember at the start of Arena when Warlock dominated and they basically said "Stack Shadow Resist... duh!" Well, people did that, and then suddenly The Warlocks' own advice was all of a sudden overpowerd because they deemed it more expedient to whine in the forums and remove switching gear in Arena rather than actually invest in +spell penetration to counteract the implementation of their own advice.

    More nuanced stats such as +resist are often lost on the general population and, sometimes Devs, of MMORPGs such as this. Once Cabalists mash their buttons and see a wave of "Resist. Resist. Resist." on their screen, they'll whine and complain about people actually doing what you recommended, instead of taking the initiative and adjusting.

    Focus reduces resist but did not reduce the dmg reduction cause by resistance.
    so if you compare resistance and Valor , valor work better.
