Been playing on US, only 24 though. They are very nice solo on the BG's.

If a stealther pops u, u just fire the cambers and run like hell, face him and LT him = dead :D

So Locks are very OP.

U will be happy to meet a BD imo, when the first 50 locks begins to turn up.

let's start with the insults right away, why not!

reavers were nothing pre-toa, sure they could slam and levi (which is crap dmg on 100% resist) but that's about it.. the chants are okish, but not worth dropping a merc or anything else for

since toa/nf you get the bombs, banelord interrupts, twf (godly ra).. thats the only reasons reavers get groups :p and still, id take a merc over reaver anyday

with the fotm 43/30 (I think) spec they get 3 chambers.
2 lowest ones can take base 179DD and 225DD LT or a nasty DoT (or a spreadheal I think?)
highest one can take a bolt instead.

theres a 2 sec delay between firing em off, so I can't see how they can 1 shot a tank, maybe if they had IP down and no resist buffs over the 6 secs...

They will excell in solo vs solo or smallgrp vs smallgrp or solo etc - dont think they will be anything special in fullgrp vs fullgrp or zergs really (except giving mid some much needed range in sieges), not after the 30% delve nerf in 1.75 anyway.
Mythic has never made any secret that they dont care one bit about solo vs solo balance, think they have even stated they try to balance for realm vs realm.

Sure, damage isnt one of the classes strong points, I'd say that consistent 400+ dmg is not too shabby for a hybrid, however the class isnt designed to do damage, its a 1 trick pony in terms of melee most of the time, only because there is or rather 'was' so much utility.

since toa/nf you get the bombs, banelord interrupts, twf (godly ra).. thats the only reasons reavers get groups :p and still, id take a merc over reaver anyday
Since SI, reaver has had 4 interupts, all cycle through and are back up every 6s, thats an interupt every 2s or more. Perma interupt if stuck to a caster, pre-NF groups like FC using reavers against hib groups.. they count get a cast off. However, due to the scale of popularity the reaver had back then, this utility wasnt seen much. The reavers has had its utility since day one, its just not been realised by groups becuase the class simply isnt popular enough, and its a shame cos nowadays this still isnt realised, as its clouded with hype over TWF.

if the interrupts were 700 (?) radius like banelord spells then they would be really useful, but currently they aren't really.. only targets you will interrupt with them are the target you're actually hitting

it was nice vs boxed up mages, but that doesn't really exist anymore.. i don't think since NF release anyone ever thought of reaver chant interrupts as smt to watch out for

and 400 dmg constant how? levi hits for 100-150 dmg on 50% resist, and 1handed dmg is a joke.. infact i always wondered why reavers hit SO soft with their flex weapons, its like only 150 with levi on a mage

anyways, your dd chant still interrupts, and you still have banelord tools :p

Well I do anyways, 99 str/dex,dex2,str2,AT,ABS+Battler debuff.

I two shot mages all the time, you saying they only have 300 hits or something? ;p Also resists may not always be up on all my targets, but thats your problem ;p

I need everything I can get my hands on ;p

its technically not even possible to 2 shoot a mage as a reaver, unless its blue or something :p

and you cant say that you'll hit for 400 when 1h damage cap isn't even 400+ without banespike, if i use banespike, rr5 ra and battler charge on my champ ill hit for 1k dmg also but thats not the average dmg ~~

VF, its the proc mate, its a level 50 spell, go figure.
you can't rely on a positional style for all your damage, and against people with 50% spirit resist (or what dmg type is it?) your proc won't hit hard in the first place.. think it does 150-200 or something?

You load 2 into each chamber, and then you nuke with uninteruptable primer (2 sec non-fixed casttime, 35-40% powercost) while you release chambers.

Unbuffed? Maybe buffsheared but certainly not unbuffed at all, I don't think I really ever come into contact with soloers nowadays, pretty much all the people I land that damage on is high rr mages, its probably because resists are down or something, which again isnt my problem, and soon the proc will be hitting even harder.. damage is scaled between target resists and WS of the person landing the proc...

Mail mythic and request more utility for reavers.. the only 'anytime' we have uses 25% endurance, low damage and procs a useless str/con debuff that's aoe and breaks mezz.. Half the time I'm using ASP anyways.

As I said, its not in my interests to deal damage, but rather interupt.

If you play a reaver do deal damage, I suggest you roll a merc or something, cos dmg aint what a reaver is about.

most tanks have a taunt as their anytime, so nothing special there :p and also, if id want an interrupter, id take a theurg :p

merc for damage, shrug :p i really dont see the good thing about reaver, offensive slamming rocks for albs but you can get a pala for that really
