Water arena advantage

Mon Dec 04, 2017 6:42 pm
Light in arena is much harder now. First off the skills for water are the best of any element. The shield lasts 6 seconds regardless. Cyclone goes on forever in arena bot. Ice staglamites hits 100% . Light shield can disappear after a few hits. Most of all immortal justice is the weakest leg belt there is. In fact many other belts perform alot better. Immortal justice hits about 33% of the time and usually only gets 1 hit. So more often than not it does zero dmg. Light against water has no bonus because of these skill off sets. Maybe if immortal was to perform like a real leg item that skill offset could be averted. Other elements you can definitely see the elemental advantage. Please respond thank you

Hi Brikim there are a few tricks you can use against the standard water opponent (stags,frost shield, cyclone and swords). The first is drop the light shield for ten strikes on ranged sets it can penetrate cyclone and frost shield, combined with do3 weapon will be effective. Also you can attack through cyclone with a melee weapon (works best with haste belt). I also find justice not especially effective but it's passive qualities are useful with a ranged stun weapon ( frost shield won't stop stun). Avoiding stags is a matter of good timing of roll or light dash bracer. 
Hope this helps 👍

Don't drop the IJ near to colosus with actived shields while u raid buddy 😉
As guys above said, you need to learn a bit. Btw, yes that skills combo as mentioned by polgara is really annoying. It is equipped on 99% of water opponents, at THAT IS BORING

10 strikes in arena will almost always disable your opponents dodge

Light is now one of the weekest since none of the skill got chritical and GL nerfed dodge to make it useless.
Maybe we should wait untill skill T7 and expect additional better traitsfor light skills. Probably in 2019:D

Dodge is something that should not be missed, sets with lower than 30% dodge are realy weak in arena and in SH raids  A combination of dodge and chrit c/d is perfect + HPH(must). 
A w set with 100%chrit. c/d dies faster than one with 50% dodge.

Nothing has changed - use DOT and run. You will win every right.
