Re: [Swordmaster] Builds, hints and tips.

Ah didnt catch that before, thanks. Who are you from Fusion btw? Thought all their SMs were peter and Cythe? We have 4 active SMs: Skepta, Cythe, Eiger and myself (Nirneath). All are RR55+. Personally, I run the following: Gear: 5pc Merc, 3pc BL. Will in 2pc Domi when I have it. Full Domi + BL is B...

Re: [Swordmaster] Builds, hints and tips.

Ok so I tested quick escape, sudden shift does break it. Playing with block a little more it is indeed comparable to parry but like stated also defense from ranged and magic making it a better investment overall. tactics do stack The next question of interest would then be: can a SnB SM do decent e...

Re: [Swordmaster] Builds, hints and tips.

I haven't quite looked at the new formulas in detail, but even if there is a difference in effectiveness between +10% Parry and +10% Block, one would imagine that the difference would be fairly marginal. If you want to min/max in a melee context, that marginal difference would matter, but as we all ...

Re: Population

Fast enough? We have all time in the world ... I guess it depends on what the objectives are of the Devs. If you look at RoR as a personal development journey where you want a Live server to tinker with, then you do. If you want a viable and healthy population, then it's already "tick tock" it seem...

Re: Population

All i can say about losing population is: boredom. -Lack of endgame is biggest cancer of this game and RoR suffering from it. Well I would agree, but let's not forget that half of the game, if not more, is not yet present. I really believe once every single dungeon in the game, every PvE instance, ...

Re: Gear disparity: Anything to be done?

TBH, as a lowbie tank you should just grind Ruin (which is easy to get) and go defensive SnB until you're better geared up. A R32 tank in Ruin can do very well, it's not so easy for lowbie DPS or Healers though.

Re: Population

when you realize you're never going to take it (unless you play 12hrs a day for an entire month) many either quit directly or play for fun for a while and then quit shorty after. You make it sound like playing for fun is the slightest evil of two not enjoyable options. When gear is your sole motiva...

Re: Population

At the end of the day, the Devs have been the creator of their own downfall there. If you make scenarios fun and engaging, then it doesn't matter as much if you lose. After all, you win some, you lose some. But if you introduce Asian style grinds for gear and players are looking at 1,500+ medals fo...

Re: Population

Remove solo queing for sc's completely. The mindset this creates is toxic. Tie sc's back to the campaign. Only allow full groups of 6 to que. This will encourage player's to try to form a group and gets player's communicating with each other which is a good thing. Soloer's / lonewolf's have ORvR. O...
