View Full Version : A better alternative to reducing Harm Touch damage...

<p>Dear Developer <a href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/user/profile.m?user_id=242118" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Aeralik</a>,</p><p>In this player's opinion a better alternative to reducing the damage of a Shadow Knight's class defining ability (Harm Touch) is to do any or all of the following:</p><p>1.) Increase timer to 30 minutes.</p><p>2.) Make timer only countdown while online.</p><p>As I understand the issue, the biggest complaint against HT is that a SK can nearly kill any player then log off and wait 15 minutes till the cooldown expires.  Afterwhich the SK rinse and repeats for instant and safe fame.  I believe that this situation is ridiciulous and I agree it needs to be corrected.  </p><p>However, I do not believe that nerfing the damage is the way to correct this problem.  Harm Touch has been and should remain a class defining ability of a SK, both in PvP and PvE.  In comparison to other classes this ability does give an edge to a SK, but only once every 15 minutes.  In between the cooldown, the class can is arguably much less likely suited for PvP much like another crusader. </p><p>In the end I will still continue to play a SK, but I think my alternative is both fair and just for all involved.  </p>

<p>ok im a SK STOP WHINNING. Harm touch was nerfed by a lot of damage, because it deserved the nerf. What is the sense of having an ability at lvl 20 that can one hit people i nyour lvl range ? even if they put it on a 24 hour timer it still doesn't make any sense. </p><p>PT at lvl 70 was nerfed too but only by 1k damage. Though in return other classes got nerfed, and resisted got nerfed. This means we can last longer now against scouts, and alsomeans we can alot more of our utilities such as dispoil that is always resisted, tap viens that is always resisted, our dots, ect. Just keep it quiet or they wll nerf us.</p>
