Yeah. I love D2 for PvE, but the PvP is really not hot in my book. Too many abilities not working well when they should, some working too well. Meh.


You know about the Leap Attack bug right?

Yeah i know but thats nor problem i guess, encountered it only once through my normal dificulty questing.

If leap is alowed here then heck leaper is perfect for pvp :D Leap them and push them as much as you like and then winish of with leap atack it could be real stress for casters coz leap covers all sreen :D And leap atack have bigest ed% bonus of all barb skills ;) Although it's kind of dificult to use it in pvm not talkink about pvp :rolleyes:

Leap attack barb aren't good at PvP. If you can't HOKO them, you're dead meat when land.

Leap attack is a pretty weak PvP skill, at least if you're somewhat serious about PvP (think of LA as a really high %ED normal attack). It might be fun to mess around with your friends using a high level leap and the 1.5 screen stun radius, but other than that I don't think a leaper would be viable for PvP. Someone might say "it's not always about winning, it's about having fun" etc., but it's hard to have fun when you lose 11 duels out of 10 with a leaper against a ww barb or smiter.

Can you actually hit anything with leap pvp? The flight time is way to long to actually expect anyone to still be there when you land.

Basically the leaper would have to run right up next to his target and then do a very short leap attack, which is why I think of it as normal attack. If you're that close though, there's no reason not to use whirlwind or even conc/zerk, all of which are better skills than leap attack.

Strijdje had a leaper with his botd GP, he could ohko my pally but... it took him about 1 minute and only when I stood still not doing anything. The damage is great, but landing the hit is too hard.
Leap on the other hand is a really neat pvp skill. Stunning and knocking back while moving towards OR away from your foe...
IIRC the pvp penalty for LA is just the same as every other skill, 17% (or 1/6 if you take the easy route).

That would be quite hard to control, no? Especially with long range weapon/lag/slight desync, too close and you'll be making a normal attack instead.
