View Full Version : Coercer isn't fun anymore

<DIV>Level 42 Coercer here and im sick of casting my spells every three minutes.  Usually I put refresh on me, maintank, and healer, and then if anyone gets low i'll cast it on them.  Put annoying demeanor and empathic link on tank as well (not sure if empathic link even works).   After tank gets those two i'll cast haste.  Add it all together and thats 6 spells with 3 minute timers.  Casting an average of 1 spell every 30 seconds soley on maintaining individual buffs.  It's driving me nuts.  Don't see why the cast cost of spells can't be more but last longer and make it so I can only have 4 breeze out at a single time.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>An average encounter goes like this: mez an extra mob if it has an an arrow, dot, dot, nuke, nuke, random maintenance spell, rinse, repeat.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I chose Coercer mostly for beguile.   I can cast it on a mob, and it will get hit by another mob's barrage and go down to red life and then immediately come after me.   Or I can cast it, it will break instantly and it will come after me.  Or I can cast it, somehow it sticks, but the mob just kind of sits there, not attacking the target i want to.  A better name for this spell would have been "taunt."</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>No loot for mages.  I had the same staff since when i was lvl 20 to lvl 41.  The new dagger and symbol i use is barely better than that staff by a small amount of int and wis.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>SOE if you want to learn how to make this class better, take a look at the clerics of the bane from icewind dale 2.  Amazing class as far as Coercer archtype goes.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I'm not sure if I'm naturally getting sick of this game, or if the game is really this boring.   My subscrip ends on the 10th and it won't be renewed untill summer.  Hopefully the game will be matured by then.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>So what does SOE do in the last patch?  Instead of fixing the issues at hand, they NERF soloing even more.  Those of you able to solo green group mobs prior to the patch.... you better try again.  Per SOE, that was a bug.   Well Hello, how about at least COMMENTING on Coercer spells and tell us if they are bugged or work as intended.  3 min Breeze?  Still nothing done.   As the previous poster said and I have already done...... cancel until the game is fixed. Dont fool yourselves. </DIV>

<DIV>hiya all</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>i tend to agree with alot that im reading here issues around mezz, breeze and the lack of the 'Coercability' we get. people say don't judge this class by eq1 standards and i agree we shouldn't but i would say this class is abit of a non enterty. but i wonder if the game can hold up long term, EQ1 i was on for 5 years this game seems a little dull after 5 months. so maybe its not the class thats the issue?!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Feydream</DIV>
