Weapon Master/Sword God general class discussion.
Have at it folks.
This is one class that I'm surprisingly good with. I love it to death, which is why I'm maining one again like I did before. :p
It feels SO GOOD to be playing this class again. Love stance skills.
I'm not a fan of the stance skills. But I get by just fine without them, so I don't think they are a necessity. :p
Winz Az is the new god wm.
Liberation of every weapon type at +0 and steamrolls true ancients to hell and back.
Start explaining some core Blademaster changes made after our version got canned.
I see backstep beams and lots of crazy new stuff and I don't know what it all is.
I'll make a list once I get home.
Basically more rebalancing happened once WM got second awakening. These two pages on dfcentral have most of the major stuff: http://dfcentral.com/2013/01/16/dnf-season-3-act-3/3/ http://dfcentral.com/2013/01/16/dnf-season-3-act-3/5/
Looked at some old bookmarks and I found my PvP builds before DFO closed in 2013. Hopefully these can help anyone new to the class or at least give them some insight.
My final build
Wow, I would love to see that dude's build. Considering he left CC, RDS and WWS so low I'm guessing he's maxed his stance skills? And level 8 SST wat
Edit: Ohhh, he post it on that youtube page
Maxed stance skills Now I want to see how he spent his TP.
Really curious how he doesn't use wm's 85 skill at all. (It takes up a shitton of sp but the hold is at least 2x as long as wm's 1st awakening active).
If he maxes stance skills, i'd say its safe to assume he dumped alot of TP into them. I think he's using the C2 Deadly Precision set (judging by how fast he can switch weapons).
I don't even want to think about how fast he would clear with an upgraded weapon
Dis guy maxed Unlimited Blade Works? smh not grtest, still Reyak.
In kDNF, first awakening actives are upgraded every 5 levels at no sp cost.
What?! How do you not have enough SP to just max everything then? I mean, in DFO if I just put 1 level into the stance skills and left the crappy skills at prereqs I could already max every skill, so how does he not just max everything?
There's more skills. And more levels for each current skill as well.
WM's have way too many skills...
Also maxing all the 2nd awakening skills (I don't know if people do that on WM's, I can't tell you how good they are because the text is in chingchong) costs a large amount of points.
Also also 1st awakening passive skills have their cost increased from 30->45.
Also also also most attack skills lose their rank cap, which is usually 30, and can continue to be ranked up all the way to the character level cap.
Another interesting thing about that guy is that he doesn't have the cancel for CC and WWS. He has RDS so low and only uses it as utility to change his position quickly. This is a very interesting playstyle that just goes to show how unique our class is. He also has a high level ashe, but doesn't use it very often. Maybe he frequently changes his build..? Man, I'd love to be able to do that..
Considering Neople is handling the game now, chances for free resets with the skill tree have gone up, which I miss more than expected. I keep forgetting you have to go to GSD for skills.
One of the very good future changes, everyone gets all their cancels for free.
Rather they got rid of the cancel skills and anything that had one can just be cancelled into naturally.
This also means one doesn't need rank 5 of a skill to cancel into them because of damn pre-req's.
Very nice change for every class.
