Re: Critique on the current state from a veteran player.

The tradeoff, if executed skillfully, results in significantly increased damage and circumstances that can only be described as unfair when compared to ranged healers. However, you'd be aware of this if you had experience in small-scale PvP . It's worth noting that we typically don't match up range...

Re: Critique on the current state from a veteran player.

It's challenging to observe the turmoil unfolding due to your contribution to this forum post, Caduceus. Your understanding of balance appears to lack the depth of experience needed to fully grasp the intricacies of RoR, particularly in the context of small-scale PvP. Allow me to address this in th...

Re: Critique on the current state from a veteran player.

Here is the thing- they do, as someone having a zealot I can guarantee you that zealot with will converted to intel doesn't heals all that much. Its that RoR is a pvp game, so the tactic of having the tanks holding the agro while healers go full glass cannon heal just doesn't works- for some strang...

Re: Critique on the current state from a veteran player.

It's clear that scenarios/6v6 is a big part of the balance picture for the RoR devs, so obviously it should be part of the conversation. If your stance is that RvR should be the only consideration that's fine, but that's not the stance of the devs. Everything I said about healers in the scenario/6v6...

Re: Critique on the current state from a veteran player.

When talking about the tankiness of healers, I suppose we should specify whether we're talking about scenarios/6v6 or RvR/24v24. In large-scale fights, I would not argue healers are too tanky, since the damage potential there is way higher. But then again, positioning is the primary means of surviva...

Re: RvR & Evolving Battlefield Objectives

Everything begins and ends with proper rewards for what you want people to engage in. Unfortunately, for as long as I can remember these devs have had a negative reinforcement mindset. They seem more preoccupied by the pipedream of a system that cannot be abused than making the game fun and rewardin...

Re: Critique on the current state from a veteran player.

Imagine in the current state of the game (exremely fast ttk) saying healers are to strong. The need for a fast TTK is obvious - the protective safety net provided by healers and tanks is way too big, which means players have to circumvent it by killing things in the timespan of a CC/punt. The fact ...

Re: Critique on the current state from a veteran player.

Healers being too tanky is perhaps the single-most pervasive issue in RoR. At this point I'm almost certain it's simply a wrong-headed "design philosophy". The cause is obvious: willpower is a very weak stat and healers don't need to invest in it to get good heals. The result is healers ge...

Re: After the nerf/patch SM's how are you.........

- WoDS cooldown basically murdered SM 2H survivability. With the change to Heaven's Blade from resist buff to debuff (stacking so yay!), basically this was the last bit of extra survivability we had and now it is very easy to get past. One interrupt (and there are lots flying around) and buh bye. Y...
