no WD balance in AC2

  • #1
    anyone else a bit upset how much more difficult it is for us WDs to do AC2 on MP10? we can't escape any elites, and we get blocked by endless demons... i was just doing some runs, and i do a decent amount of damage, have a decent amount of survivabilty, but everything is right on my heels at all times... i can't block demons with demons, for instance, being able to teleport, or whirlwind through groups of guys and still killing them as i run along, or tempest rushing through hordes of dudes.... vaulting through guys and running faster than them on the way out... all we can do is spirit walk...... until our voodoo place holder gets hit once and.... then we get hit with 45 spears or fireballs. dead. i'm liking my WD less and less as the days go on... am i really gonna have to roll a barb to enjoy this game? does anyone else try MP10 AC2?? anyone else feel the same way? am i overreacting?

    With your damage and life, I'm not sure you'd have any more fun with any other char on MP10, regardless of the area you play in. While your point about limited movement abilities compared to other classes is true and you might struggle recreating a leveling approach other classes use, playing in another area (and probably MP level until certain gear requirements are met) could be far more enjoyable. After all you already are at paragon level 91; those last 27% mf and gf should not matter that much. And AC2 is not exactly the best area for drops anyway; runs like KD2 or CotA yield far better results if trash farming is what you want to do.

    That might actually be a solution :D But as with all things mentioned in a developer's blog, the chances of this happening are moderate ~ vague and a thing of the distant future ;)

    Wizards don't have it much easier. Teleport is a complete waste of an ability and has a cool down. But yeah, I think that it should have been clear that TR and WW were going to be used extensively as farming became more efficient and I really think they should have make something comparable for WD and Wiz (and to a certain extent DH because flip is basically a wasted ability too, but at least it can be used repeatedly and actually has a secondary effect).

    i play both Wiz & WD and i hv to say my wiz can use Teleport more often than my WD uses Spirit Walk on higher mp. Why? Critical Mass passive allows cooldown of Teleport (easier to achieve with spamming wicked wind) plus Oculus source my wiz using hv 4 sec Tele reduction, whereas my WD needs to kill (which we all know its harder to do on higher mp) to get cooldown from Grave Injustice Passive .. not to mention no WD mojo with reduction to Spirit Walk.

    well, i can handle most trash in MP10, which is why i'm trying to kill it to level, because i simply can't take playing lower MPs anymore... i'd rather die and get a little frustrated than casting 1 spell over and over and running through everything in MP0... Demon665, i did some keep 2 today, it works pretty well, however my ability to get passed elites is slim, so i have to just kill them. i do, however, spend alot of time in there... and then i decided, screw it, i'll do AC2 as well, since elites were going fairly easily, but like i said, just taking a few extra minutes. works out well.

    to this, i agree... however, i don't seem to have any bit of luck, i've spent upwards for 15-20 mil trying to craft an amulet alone, along with a bunch of wasted gold (which i don't have, btw) to make a new set of shoulders and gloves. in theory, yes, this lack of DPS is making it harder, but not everyone buys gold / items for RL cash, hawks the AH for 6 hours a day, or simply is lucky enough to find ANYTHING to sell on the AH... but thanks for your input!

    Ur gear is pathetic and only reason ur not taking ages is cause of the massive dps boost wds get (yeah yeah I know other classes have other shit to make up for it) so don't whint about mp10 when ur gear is more suited for mp4

    It has already been stated that my gear is sub par, and I've already stated my case as to why my gear is where it is. As far as I'm concerned, I'm doing fairly well for myself considering my lack of finding things to sell, and playing the auction house. Your comment about my gear being suited for MP4 made me laugh... thanks for that... I'm able to handle MP7 and 8 with ease. Furthermore, this isn't a thread about my gear not quite being there for MP10, it's a thread about the lack of ability for a WD to travel around the map without being blocked like other classes. It would do you some good to read, sir.

    Don't listen too much to the trolls in this thread. I hear what you are saying, regardless of your gear and everything else everyone is bitching about in this thread. You should, however, be able to get a pretty good DPS upgrade without spending too much dough. I'm talking about your Skorn mostly. Add me if you like some help with gear. Maybe I have some stuff in my stash I can give you.
