Today i'm gonna post 1 Screenie to explain my choice of choosing the BeastMaster as my class.
However, i gotta tell you faithful readers that my entries in the next few days might lack in content as i have major exams from 20th to 23rd of August. Wish me luck and hope i breeze thru. (:
This topic is something i wanted to cover earlier on when i made that contest regarding my class and specialty. People often ask me, "Hey Cool, how come you keep using the beastmaster? arent you sick and tired of it?"
Well, like they say. A picture speaks a thousand words, a screenie holds a million pixels. (i added that myself lol) So with this picture i end my entry. Thank you for reading.
Summoners, experts of calling loyal animals during the heat of battle to aid their master. Almost 1 out of 3 players have a summoner of their own i can bet with you that. Reason being, they are one of the BEST if not arguably the BEST character to hunt with.
Summoners dont do the dirty work themselves, they let their minions do it. Wiping blood or goo off your blade? Never. HAHA. They are usually seen holding a shield and a low level Skill Mastery item, eg, Guardian Shield with 30 SM +6 Throwing Axe. They have superb defence and could hunt without the help of a healer if you're good enough.
Stats placed primarily in intelligence will increase the attacks of your summons and perhaps some str (which can be resetted) to wear your armor or weaps. Add in a few hundred of con if you're feeling vulnerable. But 100% intelligence Summoners exist too.
Elementalists, or elemental BM as they are called are similar in many ways to that of a summoner. They too, use summons to PK and hunt, however their summons will very likely be weaker than that of a summoner's.
Reason being, they are made more for PK and doesn't want to be a waiting duck like a summoner. They want to fight alongside their loyal summons but still behave like a master, they stay further back.
Elementalists have ranged attacks and they are very strong and durable in battle. Not to mention that look f*cking COOOLLLLL with the nice spear and all. not forgetting their 8th skill is AoE (finally ffs) and looks awesome.
Able to hunt, PK, and tank at the same time, jack of all trades, master of none, but totally my style. This was my style in Supreme Destiny.
Shapeshifters or Morphers as they are known, are warriors that are very versatile and could accomodate the battle they face. Before the recent patch, BM Nature was sh*t and suck a$$. Now they are much improved, but only if you use a shield and have last skill (boo not much difference, i use bhopals)
With the new patch, shielders + a throwing weap gain incredible amount of defence! With the 8th skill, you will have AD (absorb damage) options and could even return damage to attackers! (not sure if it really works)
Yes, they too can call on their summons. But their summons are mostly to distract, or to defend the beastmaster from attacks. Condors are useless bird brains and only sh*t around on opponent's head you might say, but they are excellent distractions. Try clicking on a BM who has a bunch of condors hovering around him, most likely you would hit the poor condor instead.
But to those condors, dont worry you died with honour and i love you still. <3
Wait, its not over we still have one last point. Beastmasters have the most resistance! Using werebear or titan will give you huge resistances, if youre using a shield +9 you gain more resistance and finish it off with a White Parade Horse, youre a natural tanker. Now, which other class has more resistance?
Like what MSTR-FOEMA has answered correctly, yes, im a BM Nature in WYD. But when i turn god im gonna go Hunter, so i'd be a hunter with cool armors and skin if you get what im saying haha.
Alright, thats really the end for today. Hope it issnt too short. might get shorter over the next few days. really needa spend more time doing last minute revisions. haha.
its time for me to hit the books. Speaking of books, stick around for tomorrow's entry!
Your Royal Coolness,
p/s. keep the comments flowing guys. thank you! :)
p/p/s. the 1st screenie was the Knowns taking over s3, i didnt ask him to, but thank you anyway for choosing all BMs as your merchants. haha.
