Skill doing low damage for a Katar-exclusive skill + 1-range skill.

 

At the moment, the skill is pretty much unusable for a GX because:

 

1. You CAN'T use a Shield when using this skill

 

2. You're open to vulnerability since the skill is a 1-range skill

 

Damage comparison:

 

Without buffs = 4k to 4.5k x 8 = 32k to 36k damage

 

With EDP = 8k to 8.6k x 8 = 64k to 68.8k damage

 

With EDP + Enchant Poison + Venom Impress debuff = 11k to 13k x 8 = 88k to 104k damage

 

Considering that the skill is Katar-exclusive, the skill is doing a damage on par with Cross Impact WHICH can be used with any weapon. A probable 20% boost or an additional cast range of 2 for the skill would suffice.

Ya, SB build is very used in the server right?. I suggest the range because ranged jobs have the advantage most of the time, and SB need katar and get closer to the enemy to be used. Its not the same as BB of RK, they are more tanky and they use weapon + shield + charge atk. Add 3 cell is only a little help for that build.

GX are supposed to do massive dmg to compensate for their softness. Adding range to sb isnt a solution

If SB will get +3 range, katar has natural 1 cell range...equip auto-sb headgear + range lower = profit? Haha.

Off Topic:
Sorry but we are talking about SB (Sonic Blow) here not SBK(Soul Breaker which is called Soul Destroyer now)

Back to Topic:
FYI, Sonic Blow is not spammable...it can be casted twice but will have cooldown to be able to cast again...So it is not a threat at all...compare to others that have really long range skills and spammable.

(I hope allow us to use SB even not using katar ^__^) thanks...

why not make eweap Ripclaw 1 handed ( like bows ) with restriction that it cant wear another weapon on the left hand so that GX can wear shield only for the left hand.

 

PS: for my english just woke up  :th_heh:

If you dont want to cast sonic blow, then there's cross impact. :) if you want to really sonic blow with other weapons, use punk beanie, it even hits harder than casting since it uses around lv35 sonic blow.

As for the 1hand katar, its temptingly nice to have but you kinda lose the essence of high burst damage glass canon. Plus, edp + cranial + rolling cutter may be OP.

I think the damage increase is good enough already for this skill, since I only suggested a range buff since the damage was doing low damage at the time. The increase damage helps with the fact that it's extremely risky for a GX to get in close range just to hit this skill + only limited to one weapon.

Sonic bloewshoud have deadly damage

I just tested
using sonicblow skil with katar : autocast sb from punk headgear
Damage result 1: 4.4
With the same weapon and equip

I think sonic blow skill should be buff up
I suggest 2.5x from now
To encourage gx to use this skill
Coz its fragile when using katar
Also for grimtooth

This topic is about sonic blow not about assassins wearing shield, please stick to the topic.

 

The skill should be doing pretty deadly damage now considering it can be spammed. Punk beanie no longer deals lvl 60+ Sonic Blow, it deals level 13 Sonic Blow now.

Did dry runs on the skill for a few weeks and came out to the conclusion that the skill is still doing low damage despite the advantages of having a Level 4 Ripclaw. Is it possible to buff the skill's damage significantly as at the moment, GS are currently out-damaging Katar GX classes. Thanks!

Please check after the next server reboot and provide appropriate screenshots of the tests.
