Or you can fight against Spirit in which case it'll *always* be an EA.


Oops. I probably shouldn't have pointed that out to you guys.

Oh, that's so very true. Also, it's not terrible against pyros, so the only real bad matchup is against melee, and only if it's played after 70%... I think it could be worth it.

Well, now that I have the stats to use Blades of Malice, and after a few tries with them, I can say I'm disappointed with this charm. The fact that it's split damage killed all my expectations. You need the penetration to go against armor, not ward, since most of your damage is melee. I actually had this thought when I first saw the charm, but I said I won't comment anything until I tried them, and there it is.

Now I wonder, considering it's the twinblade with highest requirements at this moment, and at this point of the game with all those hits dealing 70+ damage, is really that OP to have a 50 melee charm with 100% Penetration???

Now discuss

---------------------------------------------------------------

The second part of my thread goes for a minor change in a class charm to make it useful in 1vs1 situations. I'm talking about Flash Bomb. While it is good on some group situations, it's completely unuseful in 1vs1 (as most of Assassin charms). Now, if we change a little Flash Bomb like this:

Flash Bomb

(Target all allies)
Vanish
(Target enemy with lowest HP)
15 melee
Bane 20 Melee (40% P) during 3 turns

Now we have some kind of Firebrand (weaker, but better in some parties). I don't think it's really a game changer, but helpful.

Now discuss

PD: Yeah today is my "whinning and complaining" day xD

To all the Vet Assassins out there...

Is Cripple worth it?

To HellMaster's points:

I can actually only comment to point 2, since I can't use the Blades of Malice at my level.

I'm actually using Flash Bomb in 1on1 Coliseum to varying degrees of success... that being on the amount of EA in use by the opponent. I've seen my Flash Bomb hit for 6 actions (3 EA + 3 normal) to devastating effect...

The additional direct melee damage would be welcome, IMHO.
Assassins need any damage they can have...

I love Cripple and it's better since it got buffed a bit a while back.  Plus...it's combo counterpart is strong and if one of your teammates can run it there's no reason not to have it on deck to make the combo.

It's not great for DPS, but it's definitely a good charm to have in your collection.

If you can use Rockslide to trigger the combo, then use it. If not, you can add it, but it won't be a key charm in your gear. In general, people laugh at that -26 at this point of the game. It got buffed, but it doesn't still cause too much trouble to your enemy imo.

Lez / Nip,

Is there anyway to hijack the 1st post? I'm more than willing to update the charm list, but Dagan has quit already, I believe...  ???

There's not a lot of drama in the class discussion forum.  You could give select representatives of the classes that need it modship over just this forum I guess so they could edit thread posts like this one's OP.

Though there's probably not TOO much valuable discussion in this thread that couldn't be copied and recreated in a new thread I suppose.
