    Right. And I'm telling you the reason dexxers don't appear as good is because most people don't know how to play them. That doesn't mean they're broken. It just means that it is more difficult to play them efficiently. However, for those that do understand how to play them, they absolutely can be stronger than even the best mages. The problem is, everyone expects to just be able to walk up and freely unload lethal damage at very little skill requirement. Considering a Mage has to understand efficient combos, and manage mana conservation, the trade off is being able to land consistent, guaranteed damage. Yes, dexxers rely on a dice roll, but their damage supply is endless and has extreme potential in the right hands. My entire point, is that if a dexxer builds and stocks properly, there is a very efficient way of negating a mages offense while dishing out lethal damage. I'm not sure what you all expect.. For even the most adept of players to be able to effortlessly run into a seasoned Mage and dirtnap him/her solely based off high damage output..at the cost of what? Attack/follow? Like I said, yes, they absolutely can be very effective in the right hands, but you can't expect to rework the class and allow even the most novice of users compete with the the most elite mages. Of course mages will have an advantage when roaming in packs due to high burst damage, coordinated attacks, but that doesn't mean that dexxers aren't effective and don't have a place on the field.

    One thing to keep in mind is the scale of the battles that happened on production servers. My group would rally in glow and it would easily be 20-30 people dropping gates onto our enemy guild houses. I think at these size pvp fights with a good mix of dexxers and having greater build diversity in general was a good thing.

    It's because we're terrified of taking an ebolt to the spine from you on a mage.

    Yeah that may be true. Pax did die to these guys at least once during our fights though. I wouldn't classify these guys as easy pvp targets at all either.
