Last patch there were like no FMs once you got past 1800 so I dealt with it. Now they’re fucking everywhere just at BNS Gold. I’ve been using almost the same spec as summoners and trying to PvE them down but even then it feels like it’s not working at all. I know to vary up my Decoy timings so they can’t abuse that, but every time I hit into them they freeze themselves, or if I hit them OR decoy them I get frozen.
Dude I just stepped into the arena after they fucked up all my current set talents and i noticed they changed a bunch of stuff I can’t even make a dent in players who are 45 (I can cc chain them but the damage isnt adding up when i fight them im still only hitting them for about 50 – 100 with weapon fully repaired) honestly i thought they were supposed to even out stats? and i have that issue with force masters early on. I wait to follow up when going stealthed at first so i can try to avoid being frozen but its just STUPID how fast they can pull that off. I’ve done all my timing and i just have nothing but trouble. I get cc locked moment mine ends and it becomes an unending cc train to them. I fucking hate what they did
FMs were always the counter class to sin if played well – they are even more annoying than summoners and i’m absolutely serious now.
I hit Blade & Soul Gold yesterday with 12 wins and 2 looses and 1 of those looses was against a FM.
I played good against him overall but still i lost the 3rd round because the kit of a FM is just very, very annoying against sins.
1 frost stack alone disables your most important opener (tab switch – infiltrate) and it is much to easy to get it on you.
I’m trying some different builds now and maybe i’m planing to go for the “hit and run” technique against them because playing aggressive just won’t work out against them (especially because they have 2 escapes).
