    Default Beta Videos

    PvP

    Deathbagel/Gurg 26 Melee Riftblade - This guy is using an interesting melee build as opposed utilizing the kiting/ranged damage potential of the Riftblade. I personally think this guy is terrible and his video editing skills are lacking.

    Pureshadow 35 Champion/Riftblade/Warlord (Part 2) - Warfronts. This video is way easier to watch than the first one and the music is not too bad either. The burst DPS from Champion at that level is disgusting, seeing some of the 950+ hits (3 attack point combo).

    Evilcookiez/Oraen 17 Reaver (Narrated) - This guy with a funny accent is narrating his "survivability" build in a Warfront.

    PvE

    Seriously, who the fuck wants to watch somebody attack monsters (with the exception of some potentially challenging dungeon/raid bosses from a Warrior's perspective)?

    Share some of your favorite videos while we wait out the final ten days.

    Been playing with Pure the past few Betas and we put out some really sick numbers in Warfronts. We have been running a group of 3-4, my VK/Reaver/RB, his Champ/RB/WL and a bard friend of mine or cleric friend of his.

    I'm sure he'll be doing some more videos for the open Beta as he's done them for the past few Betas already. Looking forward to seeing how both our classes evolve at 42.

    I'm just not seeing it dakis, it may be just me but I do not think champions can burst as hard as a rift/VK combo can. A Rift/VK already sees regular hits for 900+ from discharge alone @ 30+, before any crits, and then elemental touch combined with earth burst, or air burst is also some obscene damage.

    As for AOE I think towards end level champs will dominate everyone, but for burst I'd still put my bet on VK/Rift, the souls have too much synergy, especially with the change to elemental touch proccing off spears ( which makes me think it's going to also proc off discharge, well hopefully. )

    I have not tried RB at 35 yet, but I'm curious to see how it pans out at 50. You never know what specs will come out of the woodwork and be ridiculous at 50. As far as I understand, from tier to tier it's an entirely different game in terms of balance (and abilities being used obviously).

    Yeah I hear you on that one, I'm just worried discharge just has too much synergy is all.

    I mean it's not a finisher, and it operates on a completely different charging mechanism ( pacts ) and it can get bonuses from pretty much anywhere, and it's rather easy to build up.

    Rift blade = 50% damage, champion = 24% VK = 10% ( though I think they changed the champion buff to phys only damage didn't they? ) and then if you time it you can get an extra 120% damage from enhanced burst if I read it right.

    Really warriors in general get so much crazy shit, I've been tempted to main one for awhile now, but rogue is equally as impressive to me.

    Discharge is nuts for dmg and yes 10 pacts is nothing to build up, I can pretty much just spam Discharge without even having to use pact conversion as long as points are in the proper parts of the tree.

    I was pure VK most of Beta 6 until the last day when the following night I ran into another Warrior that had a VK*ish* spec in Warfronts. I was in absolute awe of the damage he was putting out and wanted to know about his spec. I was putting out 100k+ in Warfront instances but he put that to shame doing stuff 180k-200k+ fairly easy.

    From what I gathered his spec was something like this: Soul Tree Calculator: Reaver (19) / Void Knight (17) / Riftblade (10) :: Rift: Planes of Telara :: ZAM

    Pretty sick burst damage with incredible AoE damage as well after I tested it out I was hitting 150k+ damage in a lot of Warfronts as well.

    I'm definitely going to test something like that out. I've only really used different combinations of Champion/Riftblade/Paragon/BM/Paladin for PvP. AoE damage in Warfronts might look great on the scoreboard, but unless you can synchronize them with other people (or just have everyone spamming AoEs), I would prefer a single target burst. Of course this all changes in organized group/guild PvP as opposed to the current Warfront PUGs.

    Oh I agree unless the AoE dmg is coordinated it's basically just parse/dmg output inflation to make a /flex of the epeen easier. I'm looking forward to seeing how Discharge scales at higher levels, I've heard people talking about rumors from Alpha that Discharge at 50 is less effective than it was in Beta with the cap of 35.

    Aquila are you sure he wasn't putting out insane damage numbers because of the glitch with VK's where they got a pact for every heal placed on them and thus could use empower + discharge with little to no downtime?

    I do know that was the main reason VK's were raping everybody last beta.

    I'm sure the glitch was part of it but I did notice a significant bump in damage once I switched to the VK/Reaver split vs my pure VK build after running a few Warfronts with him.

    Reaver basically is free AoE dmg with the use of Plague Bringer. I macro'd Plague Bringer to Necrotic Wounds and just laughed at the yellow number flying over the heads of everyone.
