View Full Version : Luck Blade waste of time ?

12-07-2004, 07:44 AM
i got my luck blade last night. but on trying to use i was told i need be in sneak . but i was in walk lightly but this is not sneak and it would not work .seems a lvl 21 attack can only be used with sneak a lvl 5 spell. as a lot of you will know any high lvl creatures can see through sneak at lvl 21 it a waste of time trying to use it. so come on derv let us use it with walk lightly other wise luck blade is a waste of space.also i did use luckblade in a grp but it would only let me use it onece this could be due to combat breaking sneak so again it a waste of time

You can use it in Walk Lightly...its a good skill to open with while solo'ing if you have adept 1, its just an upgrade to your old backstab.Theres a way to break combat in a group, I forgot how, but yeah its not the most usefull skill in a group.

it's not a waste of time at all..in fact it's a great ability in groups if used properly. hit sneak (or walk lightly)..use luck blade...when it refreshes...hit sneak again (while still in melee)...when the yellow song loading bar is almost at the end...hit 2 (or whatever your hotkey for melee is) to take off attack...and you will sneak ..then use luckblade again...rinse and repeat and it adds up to a lot of damage. it takes a little practice to get the timing down, but it rocks once you've got it. you lose very little melee time while using this method. =) hope this helps!Cantante<p>Message Edited by KeyserHecubus on <span class=date_text>12-07-2004</span> <span class=time_text>01:13 AM</span>

not quite sure what you just said....but if you're worried about combat breaking walk lightly or sneak....that's the point...you don't have to "break" it until the last second. you turn combat off at the last second when sneak/walk lightly is still loading in the song bar then you land your luck blade.

<DIV> <DIV>Lvl 23 troubadour here.  My highest opening hit with Luck Blade so far is 238.  Definitely not a waste of time. :smileywink:</DIV></DIV>

<DIV>Does it also cause the mob to fall down like the level 5? My group mates like that. I don't do as much damage as our predator, and I shouldn't, because he's backstabing, and I'm ambushing, but I notice that even though I don't do as much damage as him, I cause the mob to fall for one round. Does Luuck Blade do this as well?</DIV>

<DIV>so far I cant get walk lightly to engage once combat has started.  the timer goes up but even if I dont have attack on it dosent put me into stealth if I'v taken a hostile action during the encounter.  Now sneak, that I can and do use multipul times during the fight depending on how long the fight lasts.  I basicly consider it a special attack with a 4 second cast (3 for the stealth + another 1 for my hidden attack to fire).  I work it in between all the other stuff I end up doing during a fight.</DIV>

<DIV>I just use it in group or for an opening move when soloing.  depends on the group but its not a total waste of time.</DIV>

I always use it as an opening move before the tank pulls the mob or when soloing. It is a great attack, and i've hit for well over 200 with it at level 22. You cant walk lightly after combat has started, so it is an opening move only.

<DIV>Only thing iwth Luck blade...is that dmg is very inconsistent...Im lvl 23 and I have hitted for more than 200...but a lot of 90sh too...so I guess the name is very appropiate for this art...cause you gotta be lucky to whack em good.</DIV>

I have had some random hits with it also, but it consistantly out damages my other melee attacks. I had an Adept 1 before i even got the ability, so i am not sure of the damage at the apprentice levels.

I just dinged 21 and only got the charm spell. Do we get it at 60%???or am i bugged???

<DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Luck blade is useful, my highest is 265 and that's with a one handed weapon which is what I use. Lvl 25</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>To be honest though, I rarely use it. Why bother when you can pull and sink 3 arrows into a target for over 300+ damage.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>
