I've seen a r8r seeker lose to a duel(not 1v1) with lvl 143 wizard with starting gear and 140 weapon 3 times(three freaking times). Idk if that seeker is realllyyyy bad but...From that day on I lost interest to my seeker.
Too much to read .... i don't like seekers, only use it for full ws.
I'd like to know everyone's opinion on Seekers, and why nobody seems to play them. Consider the followingPositives:1) GoF on a caster class that usually has a decent crit rate2) A reusable gapcloser3) Instant status immunity at the press of a button4) Instant channeling through the status immunity5) Stun. Reusable. And a long-range "You're not moving" button6) AoE. And not weak AoE. Enough AoE to drop 2-3 targets in about 2-3 seconds if you're lucky and it's done right.7) Weapon removal. 8 ) Defense shredding9) Mixed damage. Target got high MDef? Physical skill. High PDef? Metal combo.10) Instant purify that also transfers debuffs to target11) Buff that can't be Purged (Weapon buffs)12) AoE Metal defense shred (Which works well with other Seekers, EAs, and any EPs that want to be a metal mage)13) For PvE purposes (Not that it matters) they have a 10 MINUTE long debuff that increases all skill damage done to target by 50%, making BHs incredibly easy12) Easy to level with, easy to farm with.13) Can see through stealth14) Transposition can be used to dismount barbs from catapults, or to pull people into base turret, or into your squad, or out of the air. This doesn't risk your positioning as you can just Voidstep back to them15) Last Stand, recover a ton of HP, remove all negative status effects, and become immune to stuns and slows? HELL. YES.16) 30 free defense levels. 35 if you're Sage.Negatives1) That instant purify can't be used while silenced or stunned2) Most people build tanky and don't deal terrifying amounts of damage. 3) If you want to build pure damage, you're squish. 4) Sacrificial Slash rarely comes up for sale on World Chat, you need it to deal any real damage, and it's easily the most expensive Morai skill for some reason5) No AoE CC like Nova6) Atk/Def level runes override the buffs that they give7) Easily killed once stunned, at least in my experience8 ) Window of weakness while casting/channeling Quid Pro Quo. If stunned or silenced before QPQ can go off, force AD or they dieSo, I'd like more input from people on what makes them either better or worse than other classes. What could be improved about them to make them more playable, as they seem to be the least popular class at present? Are there any more points to add to this list?If you wish to comment that they're bad, please give a reason. If you wish to comment that they're OP, please also say why. I know at least one person is just going to say "Seekers are shit, play another class." That's not what this thread is for. I want to discuss WHY you think that they are that way, or WHY you think that they are good. Tl;dr: Just give a reason for your opinion. Please.
There's a Tl;dr for a reason.
1. A seeker is NOT a caster class11. Rune > Seekerbuff13. Why shouldnt it matter since you are playing on a PVE SERVERthe 2nd time13. Pots > Detectionbuff 14. If u really need to use that "glitch" you suck16. just OP2. These ppl are noobs3. Not really6. Yeah... 7. Not reallySeekers arent played much cause ppl dont really know how to play them at least thats my oppinion... thank you
I don't know what your fucking purpose is, but let me answer you:1) Please, do me a favor and stop. Considering psychics and mages, with around 35-45% critical hit rate, plus a 30+attack level sphere or magic sword, and then DPH assassins and barbarians (which deal 500% more damage than a DPH seeker), you failed at this point.2) Can you explain what this shall mean?3) The chance is lower than a sage assassin's tidal (only 50%), and lasts 6 seconds. Can't be considered OP.4) What the fuck is this supposed to mean compared to instant mages and archers?5) Are you saying seeker has enough CC skills? The #1 joke of the fucking millennium, good one.6) Can you teach me how to drop 2-3 targets with an AoE?7) Oh, c'mon, 20% chance to apply whenever I use glowing blade and IF Arme Nier lands successfully. Lasts 6 seconds. Seriously dude?8 ) Em?!9) This makes sense, wow, for once. Congratulations.10) It has a fucking cooldown, which everyone camps 24/7 till it's wasted.11) They are useless, and everyone has runes. It's not an advantage. What are you on about?12) Leveling is easy, but not farming. And for your information, leveling is not an issue nowadays.13) To single target. And seekers are useless compared to an assassin, in PvE.14) There's a chance to fail Transposition, and you don't want to waste your 90 seconds CD Voidstep.15) Last stand has 3 minutes CD.16) The only thing that keeps seekers alive.Your points are invalid. Seekers are underpowered (not broken), they need some major boost in numbers. And, considering the disparity between the reality and your post, you utterly failed.
Seek my favorite class and i am cutest epw seeker
I believe you were the first triple int seeker in server \o/ 1v1?
