Thing what I don't understand is, why the hell would you go DD as a cleric? I mean clerics are mostly used as supports, and I think that's how they are meant to be used, just look at their skills. If you want to DD, why don't you simply play wizard, veno, mystic or psy as magic characters?
They want to try something different and metal mages do hurt
I think it's a viable option for solo pk and 1v1s, it brings a new aspect to the class and their skills are pretty cool/different to other classes. People choose to be a DD cleric simply because it suits the way they would like to play a magic dd class, just as some feel suited to psy or veno etc. Or sometimes they want to go DD mode when they're usually support and they'd rather stay on their cleric than be on a different class. Since you get violet dance, which removes a lot of healing skills and changes its dynamic, it's almost like a different class entirely, and gives that class that always has to support a means of being different and actually killing something. But in mass, I have no idea why people think DD clerics > Support clerics.
As DD ( if you know how to play it ) in my opinion best one is ep and exactly that's why, it have a lot of support skills which gives them a lot defense, also if you know how to make your combos even clerics can 2shot ppl. c: It's up to everyone how they want to play their classes.
Yes, but..Pur magic Clerics > support build Clerics = different gearsDD or Support Clerics = different gameplay ( can't be compared )Support build on cleric look like a lack of skills for me.I understand people go HA/vit/str build to support, it help and it requiere less skills/rapidity/attention.But pur magic cleric when you play it well can tank more than support build type clerics, better heals and can AA in small PK. However pur magic cleric rely more on their skills than on a broken build.Veno and Mystic and Psychic and Wiz are from far alot better than Clerics as DD and even in 1v1 Veno and Mystic are alot better than clerics. It's like compare pur str barb and cata barb damage.PS: opinion for this server.

With all respect to your cleric skills, but Ana much more tanky as you are. Unless you think she are more pro and could tank without HA?
With all respect she went for def stuff, from what I know LeiZo is DD ep so he went for atk. If I'd have def +2 neck, belt and 2 rings then yea maybe my ep could tank as much as hers or maybe more.
It's just than support build is alot more easy to play and requiere alot less skills and knowledge.
