PvP Week 5 - The Game Write-ups As usual I will try to write up each night's games as we go. Any contributions in the form of videos, screenshots or anecdotes is gratefully received. PvP Week 5 - Thursday The Players Pris, a WW/Trap Assassin - maxicek Sapphire, an ES Fire sorc - Pyrohemia OddBlob, a Bone Necro - Pyrohemia FluffyKitten, a BvC - Pyrohemia BearChest, a fuzzydodger Amazon - Pyrohemia Tifa, a WW/Trap Assassin - frozzzen Faithless, a Liberator - frozzzen Stratos, a Wind Druid - frozzzen ???, a lightning sorc - frozzzen Leda, a ES Orb sorc - Darkoooo I was hosting, so only one character for me. I have re-specced my original WW/Trap assassin, Pris, to take advantage of Enigma, so I thought I would give her a try. This was the first time I have played PvP since PvP Week 3, back in the summer last year. I started out very much in PvM mode - too much trapping, not enough MB - but the fingers gradually started to remember what to do throughout the evening. Pyro's fire sorc is a tough opponent and dominated most of the rounds when she was played. With 200FCR and a strong ES she was difficult for me to get close to to WW, and the traps were only tickling I think. Similar characters are always difficult to duel and frozzzen definitely came out on top of the Hybrid vs Hybrid battle. All the lightning everywhere makes it very difficult to judge whose traps are whose. Pyro went through a phase of character build selection ADD and tried a number of characters. Necros often struggle against Hybrids, because of the poor FHR, and against two he didn't like that choice. The fuzzydodger was an interesting build, but one of the cases where the guide overstates the builds effectiveness IMO. (*cough* Kodiak *cough*). FluffyKitten, a 7K life BvC Juggernaut, was much more effective. Pyro and frozzzen even had two simultaneous KOs in a row. Pyro was getting confused by the desync, so changed back to Sapphire in the end. frozzzen had a brief try with Faithless (great name), a new Liberator. I find getting the keys down for a Liberator even more difficult than a Ghost as you have to change skills on both RMB and LMB. I think he had similar issues, so didn't play the liberator for long. Darkooo made a welcome return to The Blood Moor with his ES Orb sorc, Leda. She performed well against the other characters, but had one big problem - she couldn't dent Sapphire's ES. We split into teams for a bit, Pris and Leda vs Stratos and Sapphire. Darkooo and I managed to run them close a few times, but Sapphire was always the problem. All in all a good nights duelling. I hope to see more people on The Moor over the weekend. Come on people, 1.13 rune drops and re-specs have removed two of the biggest excuses for not trying PvP, come and have a go.
