How SH surviving WH?

Post#1 » Mon Dec 07, 2020 9:52 am

Litte question... Somone got an idea, what a SH can do vs the WH?

Problem: Squigarmor + Hornet Squig (but rSH) but a solo WH kills my instant in stun (i think he had +80rr).
Survival tips and tactics for the travel?

What tactics would you recommend for traveling, that you survive at least a few seconds vs a high rr WH? What tacitcs, when you transport boxes?

I don't expect to win (as rSH), but to survive around a few seconds for help or to flee

i know, BS is worse but i got fun. When you have a bether BS Build: You're Welcome :)

Get more health to survive the damage in kd, if you survive the stun, get some range and stabilise, you hold pretty much all the advantages. As long as you keep distance.

If they don't lead with the knockdown as the very first attack out of stealth, be quick on the disarm button, or use it preemptively if you're pretty certain when they will pop. You can't activate it while you're knocked down, but if you preload it before the knockdown, it will still go off on your pets attack, and you can tell your pet to attack while knocked.

Utilise squig armour. if you know they're coming, but can't see them, just sit in it, it increases your wounds and armour so will help mitigate some of the damage that will be coming and give you more of a chance to survive the KD.

On another note, I know you said you enjoy it, but that is just an awful SH build.

what tacitcslots you use for traveling? I plan to switch these specifically for traveling.
Whazat Behind You? / RUN AWAY / Sneaky Git / Da Smell don't bother Me ?

what kind of BS build would you recommend?
RoR.builders - Squig Herder?

Doesn't squig armor get stronger by increasing bouncing? if not, QS makes more sense?

Against wh's, QS is far better yer, but as you're only rr4x, you're pretty much dead either way if they're geared/good.

The problem with QS is that it's very unforgiving given the short range now, this is only magnified by the fact you're rr4x with less than 6k wounds unless you slot talis. So until you're a bit higher, it probably would be better for you to just play some sort of BS spec with gas squig from the max distance you can get. Your damage will be terrible, but at least you'll spend more time alive than dead. Until you get some levels/gear, you just have to accept that if a reasonable wh in gear gets the drop on you alone, you're more than likely going to die.

Travel with your Basic Squig out. 2sec KD plus guard will help you through the stun. Eat and swap to the squig of your choice after the KD wears off.

Also make sure to have 2 health pots plus the absorb pot to survive BaLs final tick and any absolutions he might be able to land on you before you can separate. Also beware of them using the charge stealth to try to close the gap after you peel.

Really easy actually.

If you are mSH you will never lose to a solo WH.

If you're rSH you need to be a bit more "prepared". And by prepared i mean just make sure your finger is always hovering over disarm. If the second you see / notice / feel damage of any kind. just smash disarm. after that the rest is pure ez mode. slow / self punt, dump 8k dmg, collect renown, walk away.

honestly life as an SH is so easy as to be a joke but you will figure it out. you can dump on WH np once you figure out what you're doing.
