    The White Dragoon (Beta PvM)

    Hope some of you remember my Black Dragoon, I've been doing more Dragoon experimenting and came up with this idea.

    Named the White Dragoon for the skills he focuses on: Frenzy and Leap Attack. "Blinding speed" and such, plus white is a blinding color, similar to how the Black Dragoon is named for the aspect of fear.

    NOTE: This build has NOT been tested out yet, this is just an idea right now.

    Here's a preliminary skill distribution:

    20 Leap
    20 Leap Attack
    20 Frenzy
    20 Weapon Mastery (Any that can be double-weilded, since you use Frenzy)
    20 Frenzy synergy? Battle Orders? Berserk? OR second Weapon Mastery.

    Okay, though I really doubt it, the main purpose of this test is to see if Leap and Leap Attack's LEAPING SPEED is affected by Frenzy. If not, the actual attack most definitely will be.

    The idea here is based on three strategies:

    1. If only one mastery, hit with Frenzy to build up and then unleash Leap Attack once the attack speed is maxed.

    2. If two masteries, make one of them for a 2-hand weapon, and build up with Frenzy, switch to your 2-hander and THEN use Leap Attack.

    3. Or alternatively, you can do away with Leap Attack and put those into Frenzy synergies, leap into a crowd and Frenzy the **** out of them. But that wouldn't really be a Dragoon anymore, so this likely won't be the build.

    I'm going to go for sword mastery on my test Barb, even though Zerker axes get better damage. I'm pretty sure Colossus Blades get more range and comparable damage.

    Off to test!

    frenzy doesn't make leap/leap attack jump faster..

    and.. zerker actually has the same range as colossus blade

    ah but dual cb's look cooler. i personally went with the dual cb on my barb knowing that i would do less damage but it was simply because i wanted to look like i was actually carrying a weapon.

    i have a polearm leap attacker
    leap attack doesnt need any ias
    espicaly if u land it just right, there wont be an animation and u can move away immedatly
    bout a .5 sec delay, then the your attack connects
    if you're on the west coast ladder
    i can show you
