  1. Just got this bad boy the other day after solo farming BoS and FM for skill books. It's super fun to use, and there's a lot of pew pew -- although I still would prefer the stumble bomb version since I mostly PvP. What I found out though was that this and the other version inflict short range AoE damage! I'll update the guide to add these little details and some personal screenshots.
  2. I'm glad the guide could help a fellow cipher boi! Those stats are still something I'm working out myself, and I will update the guide the moment I get the relevant information. All I can say for now is there is greater emphasis on crit spell than raw magical attack. Just found this out a couple days ago, too! I'll add it as well as the fact it decreases Magical Attack by 200.
  3. So after a million years, I've updated the guide with more content and information relevant to the recent patch. I also cleaned it up a bit and added some new images and sections explaining the new features. Hope you enjoy!
  4. If only we could directly tell that to NC. I haven't done it since it was changed. It seems to take a lot more time that it used to. Indeed, I used to main cleric but wanted to try something unique and I never turned back Especially in Besh it's a balaur slayer. I love it! On a new note. Here are the skill changes for ATs as found on the EU server! https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vSA1iFWjaXdiosTAoJeRIh9WTPbJluQ-zpStLjRI-dCHgw_NyKmAfCYnHxy9fr7wip5w552zm6qOQI0/pub
  5. 6.0 info

    I've seen skill changes for every class except AT. Can anyone get a hold of them? If not, can you tell me where?
  6. Right? I mean candy stats are too good to pass up in PvP. Besides, when you're out in the town you can just roll around outside of your bastion. But I think the bastion is a defining quality for ATs. Sure it draws attention away from the pilot, but get a cool cipher skin along with a character skin and you'll always look good.
  7. Thread Updated! Version 2.0 Fixed some errors. Completed PvP class encounter sub-guides. Added a meme! Added information based on 5.8 changes. Will add new polls soon! I'm always open to feedback and criticism. Have fun aetherteching!
  8. Indeed it does. It may be hard to see sometimes because since it's a charge skill, you can use a lot of other skills together within the time it would have taken to charge to do about the same amount of damage. The AoE effect is the main perk of this skill since it acts as a beam. So it's great for handling lots of balaur, like adds or clusters in besh; that's where it really shines.
  9. Solo pvp?

    I love solo PvP. If I'm ever in a group, I'm usually with my gunner friend or cleric friend (who just got into open world recently), but i'm usually on my own. I personally think it's a much better way of evaluating and developing your own skill (without the need for heals or babysitting). You are right though, it's extremely hard to find 1v1s in open world. The most popular solo pvpers are classes than can heal themselves like a songweaver or chanter and sins/rangers because they can pick their fights while in stealth.
  10. Thread Updated! Fixed some errors. Added PvE information. Added Gladiator, Templar, Assassin, Ranger, Chanter and Cleric fighting tips!
  11. I'm teetering on whether or not this is a bad thing. I did notice an incline in the amount of ATs I've see online which does make me happy. Looks like the previous quote guessed correctly haha. Some good information here. 1. You may want to retest this, because I've tried it on sorcs before and after your claim and it has worked. I don't know yet if this effects the archdaeva version, but the normal version is indeed breakable. 2. The gear setups I gave were based on a small budget, knowledge stones are always nice, but I mainly encourage people to get magic boost until they're swimming in kinah. 3. Yes, I did change this with the update a while back. Silence has to be the #1 pick, since mainly every classes' utility skills can be silenced. Clerics and Songweavers can be incredibly pesky to bury. 4. Already? We literally just got it though. But as someone said above it would be nice if this would at least be a legacy skin, perhaps obtainable through aertherforging? 5. I agree. But for lower level ATs I would recommend using essence (as opposed to socketing) to obtain a steady amount of magical accuracy to even hit most archdaeva mobs. As their gear gets better they can remove it entirely. My MA with full harvesters is just about 2.8 (with bastion mount) which is suitable for any instance. Also those are some pretty impressive stats! However, I believe if you're going to share your stats that you do so without buffs.
  12. Thread Updated! Changed some of the layout. Fixed some errors. Expanded on PvE and PvP tips. Added section to provide tips versus other classes which I will finish soon! Added information Archdaeva information. Added new polls.
  13. You need to make a balance with your MP management otherwise your DPS is going to be punished because you're either focusing too hard on damaging skills or too much on losing MP. Socket Aether recharge and learn to work siphoning stab into your rotation. Sure it might not do that much damage, but you'll maintain a sustained level of MP while using your stability thrusters and battery. Keeping your mp from running out in the first place prevents hiccups in your rotation. Furthermore, Aethertechs aren't sorcs or assassins; you're not going to be dropping nukes or weaving -- you need focus on using your buffs, maximizing your attack speed and using Kinetic whenever it's off cool down. There was a rotation I used back in IS and some Arch Instances which easily pushed me to either top or second DPS. I haven't PvE'd in a while, but I'll give you my 0 cooldown rotation once my computer is up and running again for me to test.
