Clip showing how narrow some of the hardest hitting SS abilities are.

This is the first one I just finished and uploaded, so working on the 2nd one where I use a different spec. I use Phase Shift and will have a few clips using Spatial Shift, the really cool thing about the Spellslinger is it has a lot more options in terms of utility skills than other classes. And I think it will have a slightly higher skill cap than other classes because of how their innate works, Spell Surge.

2nd video is up, longer clips to show off how defensive SS can be with the right LAS. Also scroll down to see me explaining a few clips and my thoughts on some of the SS abilities.

Spec is something like this in most of the clips.

DISCLAIMER - This is all based off of sub 50(max level) PvP so all this can change at max level in full PvP gear.

 

SIDEBAR - shoutout to the Carbine dev that made the animation of the spellslinger pulling out their guns then flipping and clicking them when you pop Spell Surge out of combat(maybe even in combat). Always gives me that "oh shit its on feeling", nicely done. You can see it at the 8:06 mark in the 2nd video.

I was very sad when you missed that third Assassinate on the Esper. Good grief does that skill hit hard at that level, though.

It's automatically unlocked once you get a Teir 2 AMP in the Assault line. You can find at least one of those T2 Amps on your reputation vendor in the first major village - you need to be 'Popular' with that faction, which should happen pretty easily from normal questing.

Watching the video now. Will edit in thoughts in a bit.

Edit: Cool video - I enjoyed that rematch with the warrior in the tunnels. Good to see how powerful SS can be with the right tool and the freedom to unload the burst. Do you have any comments or reccomendations on your builds for PvP or other abilities or AMPS? I'm looking forward to levelling up to 25 and seing some more variety this coming weekend. Cheers!

Uploading PvP highlights 2 now, this one is a bit longer with longer clips. I really wanted to show off how good Phase Shift can be and have a feeling it may get nerfed. It may be one of the most underrated skills in the game and the T4 is amazing. So I included longer clips with me getting attacked more than the 1st one. A clip with my LAS and the final BG scoreboard.

 

And I also have some early clips of Spatial Shift which is a cool move but the cooldown is a bit long. The last clip of the Spatial Shift LAS you see me use it for 2 reasons. To stop a charge shot and close the gap towards the low HP player but he/she still got a way at the end.

Shoutout to badwar, I think that was his name but he destroyed me in the tunnel. If I get shit on a 1v1 fight I have no problem uploading it. I just want to show people that the SS can get destroyed if they miss a few key ability or under estimate their opponent. Oh I just saw the clip again and that "rematch" was actually a different Warrior kinda shows the difference in player skill. One just destroys me and the other one barely touches me.

 

To the suggestions It really depends on the player and whatever skills they feel comfortable using. I looked at the AMP tree but at level 26ish you don't have enough amp points to make any solid builds and a lot of the new beta players don't have enough platinum or rep to buy the good amps. So my advice would be get up to Assassinate(this is one of the must have SS skills in PvE and PvP), cooldown reduction, and crit chance. 

 

I think Phase Shift is better than Void Slip, for me it lets me play a lot more aggressive in the 2nd clip you see me with low health and still charging people at the beginning. After a while people just stopped attacking me because they knew it was a waste of time. With that said I may grab Void Slip just to chase down other SS.

 

Spatial Shift is really cool but I wish the cooldown was a little shorter maybe 30secs.

 

True Shot does good damage if you can land all 3 but it is really hard to aim in PvP and I would say only worth using once you hit a Flash Freeze. The SS that can land this ability consistently will shine in PvP.

 

Flash Freeze seems like a must have for PvP, it allows you to line up some big burst with Spell Surged Assassinate or True Shot.

 

Phase Shift great skill, being able to predict when people will throw out a stun takes your gameplay to the next level. Vs a lot of the SS you see me pop it right before they gate. Half the time they missed the gate anyway but it was up. SS also don't have a baseline CC break so mastering when to use IA will be necessary.

 

Ignite seems really lack luster.

 

Charged Shot, love it in PvE and PvP will most likely always be on my LAS. The T4 and Spell Surge makes this one of the coolest abilities in the game.

 

I love Wild Barrage, great damage and good to SS especially in PvP

 

Chill is ok but doesn't seem needed in BGs maybe at higher level

 

Flame Burst seems really lack luster, I actually had more fun with my SS once I dropped it

 

Haven't unlocked Arcane Missile but it doesn't look that great.

 

I see a lot of SS doing hybrid builds by grabbing a heal or Runes of Protection both can work but I think its better to focus on pure damage than assuming you will have to heal to win a win. Normally by the time you start spamming heals its already too late. If I do a hybrid I would grab Runes of Protection to help my teammates more.

CCs cannot be deflected! Also, Phase Shift can be used whilst you are stunned... but I'm just nit picking here. I enjoyed the video a lot, those double assassinate crits were just too good. Nice to see a variety of footage i.e. different LAS, varying types of fights and even a death. Some moments with nice kiting and good skill usage. :)

Thanks and glad you enjoy the video. I didn't know you could use Phase Shift while CC so that is good to know. And I wasn't talking about deflecting a CC but blocking it with the Interrupt Armor. I guess I will test tomorrow but do you know if you can use it while casting? I know some abilities work like that.

Phase Shift gives you Interrupt Armor though.

Apologies, jumped the gun. Would help if I processed the whole sentence, you even said it at the end of it, lol, my bad! It's a common misconception so it was a knee-jerk reaction post. Sorry!

I don't think you can use it mid-cast. Don't quote me on that though, Can be used mid-cast. I never try to use it mid cast as I rarely use it preemptively. The only time I find myself using it preemptively is when I know someones about to die and I don't want to get my heals interrupted or I'm getting trained by a group of people, but typically I'll use it reactively to prevent chain CC and it's less risky (people wont wait out the buff). I'll admit the argument goes both ways, especially when you speak from a 1v1 perspective, but the way I see it is that people always immediately throw out their damage after they successfully landing a CC and you want to make sure you have the buff throughout the whole duration. I'm a healer so I typically don't find myself in 1v1s... except when I'm being bad.

Some nice numbers - I thought I was watching something much higher level to start with!

 

I guess there's a pretty good chance of Assassination getting a hefty whack by the nerfbat before too long so I'd enjoy that one while it lasts lol.

I plan on recording some more PvP footage with different specs, seeing the same spec over and over again seems fairly pointless. Gonna try a Rapid Fire/True Shot spec, hopefully I land True Shot so I don't look terrible. Then probably a magic spec with Ignite to see how that ability works.

That could be pretty cool.  I'm thinking hard about trying out a RF/dash spec...won't be this weekend unless I power level another SS though as I'm hoping to be trying out the EU servers finally (except they aren't up this weekend, doh!).

Man, they messed up somewhere between True Shot and Assassinate that's for sure.  I think True Shot is the one that should be instant with the shorter cooldown.

 

Not a dig at you man, you play great.  I'd like to be able to make a build that didn't include Assassinate though and based on this I'd just be totally gimping myself.  Who seriously wouldn't take this?

 

I wonder if the real problem is the rest of the skills aren't quite up to scratch though.  I feel like I have almost zero single-target damage at level 19 and wouldn't be able to beat any other class 1v1.

Yeah the cast and how narrow True Shot is doesn't add up for the dmg it does. I don't see myself using True Shot in PvP much unless it gets adjusted. The telegraph is actually smaller than Assassinate. This weekend was the first time I actually got to play my SS for a while, last week was only 3 matches before the weekend was over. It kinda sucks for the best burst dmg its Spell Surge Assassinate.

 

With that said don't judge SS too much off of that raw footage, I honestly hated the spec. My only dmg/burst was True Shot to Assassinate. I don't mind the gameplay but once that combo is done I'm pretty much waiting for the CD to come back to finish someone off. Pretty sure I'm be rocking T8 Assassinate, I can see myself just constantly spamming it at level 50 but without Spell Surge the damage above 30% is pretty bad but decent.

 

Also don't forget we don't have full Tier points, magic missile, full amps would add a lot of dmg. And open up some more options like a Magic DPS one. Being able to get a T8, which is costly but may change a lot of things. I actually liked a T4 QD spec the damage was nice and was amazing for chasing people down.

You're right about Flame Burst btw - dunno what that's supposed to do but it's a longer cd, narrower telegraph "skill shot" which does less damage than Dual Fire (at least for me), which also heals.

 

I'm kinda concerned that the goto spec will be something with T8 Charged Shot and T8 Assassinate.  It's looking pretty likely.  I guess T4 Phase Shift (can't wait to try that one out), Void Slip, Gate and Flash Freeze. QD T4 for speed and CD reduction.  Man, that's going to be nasty.
