What are the actual odds that dexxers will ever be useful in PvP?

    Man I ran into Genocide a few months ago when he came back. Ran into him right outside ice dungeon. I didn't realize he was in mumble with us (lol). I attacked him and before I could finish stripping him he had hit me twice with a DP war fork and fucked my shit up. I had to take off at roughly 20% hp. I stunned him, loaded gheal, and went for cure pot but the cure failed to cure and I had to drop my heal cursor to cure again. By the time he was baring down on me again right before someone in mumble said we were on the same team.

    Long story short that shit was lethal. Add explo pots on top and it can be extremely deadly in a team fight, even with mages, so long as the dexxer is supported as Cynic said.

    And yes, Sandro regularly hit the field with us on Torin regardless of the situation. It was just a matter of what he felt like playing that day. But he and I used to roll people up and smoke them (me on a Mage and he on his dexxer) in lopsided fights not in our favor.

    ok you ridiculous contrarians

    dexers must be really good guys

    everyone go out and make a scribe macer and rule pvp

    forget about stun punches and para blows, mes doesn't know what he's talking about. It's all about dp and cool concussion hits.

    In my experience here, dexxers do what theyre supposed to do. They give a constant and consistent stream of damage until their weapon breaks.
    Thats what theyve always done. The problem with this is that you have to be standing next to someone to do this. Archery is borked so this is how it is.

    An axer or a fencer, or any dexxer is only good in a box where you can reliably touch someone over and over. On this shard theyre arent that many boxes. With mounts, recalling in quite literally a second, and PLENTY of room to maneuver in most areas of the game, it makes actually getting close to someone hard to do.

    You can make any weapon, even a dagger, do enough damage to kill in two hits, and people will STILL choose magery.

    Until archery is a competitive source of damage again, the ONLY other ranged attack in the game, magery, will be king. All competitive field templates will be based around magery.

    If daggers could kill in two hits I would never play a Mage again.

    lol, I spawned generations of scribe macers because I posted a 'volume' about it. Mes, take a fucking rest bro, you're super washed up at this point and have resorted to simply dreaming shit up that literally never happened.

    I've described the benefits of the scribe macer as a great CTF template. This is still accurate and if I gave a shit, I'd happily go run some more flags whilst packs of dexxers ting on my invuln armor to prove it, again.

    It's a glass cannon in the field but slightly stronger for the bonus reflect. Fun for a time with some big hits but really nothing to sync with, so obviously outmoded in this present build.


    Keep on keepin on though.

    Dexxers are a support class, you shouldn't expect to win with them in combat against real pvp templates.

    Nox Fencers are deadly when played correctly. So for you guys who say dexers are useless have no idea what your talking about.

    Considering I currently win with less the vast majority of the time, I'm not sure I understand how I'd somehow start losing with something superior to what currently exists.

    Im not saying that yould never get a kill, Im just saying that against competent and skilled opponents playing mages yould prolly have a negative KD ratio. The reason being because you have to be next to someone to kill them whereas the mage does not.

    Are you fucking retarded? You think I don't know how this works? You clearly have no concept of how pvp works on this game. What does a Mage have to do to cast a spell? Stop and load. Which means what? Every time a mage stops to cast something they risk getting hit, interrupted, and damaged. I could fuck up 99% of the mages on this server with my dexxer right now, and you're telling me with a dagger that could kill in two hits I would lose?

    It is legitimately mind blowing to me that there are always that large group of players, everywhere you go, who spout ridiculously inaccurate statements, that are completely baseless. Just because most people suck at certain aspects of pvp, does not mean the mechanics suck, or are broken. It just means you suck. Sorry if that offends you, but it's true. The actual players that are good know how this works and know what is effective. The sheer fact that you think mages just seemingly get to run and cast without ever getting hit by a dexxer is flat out bullshit. Stop commenting. You don't even know what you're saying. It's incredibly easy to stick to a Mage and swing away anytime they stop to cast a spell.

    I'm still trying wrap my head around the fact that I'm now arguing with someone who used this as a point.

    You have to be trolling. Please tell me you're just trolling and aren't actually serious? Please....
