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.
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!
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.
