I dunno Marauder DPS can be really good, I've seen maras top charts in cities (at stage 2 end before champ phase), I have also seen White Lion at the top of the Meters, same for mSH. They all can be really good aoe dps.Illuminati wrote: ↑Wed Jun 24, 2020 5:05 pmmSH = AoE DPSjvlosky wrote: ↑Wed Jun 24, 2020 4:51 pmMost classes have a 'mirror'. But....
There is a 4 way psuedo mirror between Shadow warrior > Squig Herder > White Lion > Marauder
White Lion and Marauder are supposed to fill the same roles, but have different mechanics
Squig Herder and White Lion are supposed to be kinda of the same mechanics wise because of the pet.
Shadow Warrior and Marauder are supposed to be similar Mechanics wise with the stances.
Shadow Warrior and Squig Herder are supposed to fill the same role.
You can see there is something wack here because mSH can fill the role of a melee with the same effectiveness of a White Lion, and Destro gets another melee in the form of mSH for city comps. Where as SW has no melee aoe and will probably soon be worse than Squig Herder in ranged as well.
rSH = Utility
Mar = Utility
aSW = Burst
rSW = Utility
WL = Burst/AoE/Utility
The team may need to consider dethroning King WL and giving some of that love to other classes. Theoretically, every DPS class should have a Utility, AoE, and ST Burst spec. Every dps class should be like a WL with viability in every role.
The only outlier is I have never seen a aSW be top dmg at the end of stage 2 nor a ranged SW nor Ranged SH.
mSH = AoE DPS | Utility as well and sustain in the form of Tastes like Stuntie and Indegestion.
rSH = Utility
Mar = Utility | As well as AOE DPS and probably the best Morale Drain in the game.
aSW = Single Target Burst* in a game where with how heals work, isnt super effective. With how heals are in this game the meta is heavy AOE pressure. Probably best class for Ranked SC tho.
rSW = Utility and some AOE dmg utility and a weak morale drain. Other classes do the same thing but better.
WL = Burst/AoE
Fixed that for you
Main outliers being ranged SH and SW in general for city viability. When it comes to oRVR composition can matter, but more often than not just having more numbers is the deciding factor.
