    Default Finally it hit me, the reason behind Tempest!

    You know, Rift population is slowly degrading. Pvp is ... eee.. it is what it is.

    So Trion had this brilliant idea: lets make a soul even a handicapped person can play! And make it so easy you can play it with 2 buttons. Or 1.

    What drew me to this conclusion? A backpedalling tempest who was nr 1 damage done in steppes. Surely if you backpedal you have some kind of a syndrome.

    I have nothing against handicapped people and Id say let them have their fun too, but really, this is going to far, I didnt think Trion would fall this low.

    Trion, stop making money on handicapped people!

    Someone's mad that they got killed by someone who uses the "S" key.

    Doubt Tempest was made with PvP in mind or directly because of it. It was probably made just to broaden the warrior calling to have something they can write off as a passable real ranged soul. I look deep into things but, I think you are looking too deep on a tangent.

    I'm not highly bothered by tempest but it can be brutal when playing my cleric. I have to be aware one is attacking me if I want to live and not be blind sided into death. It's very powerful but they also go down like any other DPS, it's the heals behind that will make it rough or not. But that goes for any competent DPS, perhaps DPS executed in such an easy way it takes little competency to spike high, is a glimpse into what the game would be like if so many other souls were utilized fully in performance.

    I don't care if they tone it down or leave it, I'd rather have a tempest on me than a NB. You guys whine too much, I was always told I don't mind DPS because I play one. Been maining a cleric basically for a while now and still feel the same. Yeah, you guys whine~

    It was probably me; I backpedal all the time. I also bunny hop so it mesmerizes people. I think its because of how high I can jump.

    Random buttons ftw

    Not sure what you are talking about. Back on topic, this spec is OP. Also, Immunity Timers on CC really piss me off. In addition, buff Pyro.

    Tempest is not OP. If anything, it needs to be buffed with more survivability.

    if you haven't yet seen entire teams backpedal in whitefall, you've been playing blind.


    the single most effective strategy in that match (and most other maps) is simply to charge straight down the other teams throat. doesn't matter what class or spec you are. if your team pushes, the other team panics and runs away.

    Maybe one day you'll post something that isn't utter unoriginal, tryhard ****.

    But I doubt it.

    Exactly. LOL in fact, i have to be careful when I swap from my warrior to my mage on the same night because i will totally forget the first couple of times in WF's and while i might not just charge in - I will definitely get my spacing screwed up until i die once or twice and remember i'm wearing cloth instead of plate.

    This is one of my favorite tactics on Bard. I have about 36k hp in my Bard spec and of course run speed, so I charge down the middle spamming Cadence and CoR and run right through the advancing team. Pop temps and run for cover with a few in tow and now the front is full of holes. If there is anyone good, they can get the team on track again but if its all scrubs, the confusion turns an otherwise fair match in to a steamroll.
