I'm pretty sure that she's just saying that she gets all wrongfooted every time she switches profession and that she's split across so many classes that she's not really comfortable with most of them.
"On the battlefield I am a god. I love war. The steel, the smell, the corpses. I wish there were more. On the first day I drove the Northmen back alone at the ford. Alone! On the second I carried the bridge! Me! Yesterday I climbed the Heroes! I love war! I… I wish it wasn’t over."
I mean. It kind of has to wait for classleads or the revamp, because kaistrike is the only thing allowing monks to kill competent people one v one (and barely, at that).
Not much sympathy for that particular case, you basically sat there for going on 15 seconds before deciding to tumble (at which point, tumbling was a death sentence even if you'd fixed your legs).
Noone is defending kaistrike. You're advocating making the ability that allows monk to be playable in a solo setting not fulfill said necessary function. I'm saying that's something that needs to wait for a classlead, because the implications for the class as a whole are non trivial and the last thing am needs at the present is another toothless limb damage profession.
As for the brazier statement, tumble at any point in that chain before the incendiary fired would've saved you. Feel free to do the math if you don't believe me.
Tumbling doesn't save you as there is more than enough time to brazier and reapplying kaistrike, and being hit with one kai cripple/kaistrike or prone/stun, kaistrike immediately removes the ability to do anything to stop kai-strike. Keep defending something worse than vodun mangle.
To be honest, I don't have one, because I frankly don't think the monk classes current paradigm is workable in imperian's combat model. There is very little ground between "I can definitely kill this person" and "I can't kill this person". You'd need to alter the bal times quite substantially on monk to make it work without kaistrike, and arguably it'd leave it in an even more miserable position than it currently is.
Iluv said:And Vodun also required illwill which can't be pre-charged.
Do you believe in magick? With demons too.
