Fafnir vs SW armor/dagger and some other questions Hi everyone, I know this is a question that has been posted a lot in the past, but I couldn't find a conclusive answer since they were outdated/split 50-50. Anyway, I'm f2p and am wondering whether I should buy a SW dagger and transpose my Damascus onto it. I know that the main argument for getting the SW is the atk speed, but I heard that shads already hit the soft cap w/ the Damascus. If I don't have MPE pots, then does the Faster atk speed from the SW even mean anything? My other question(s) are about my armor/transposing. Currently, I have 4 set CRA and Empress equips for everything else. Since I can't afford Tyrants, it'd be most optimal for me to get SW armor to replace the Empress ar
Shadowers Don't Need to be Funded Clean equipment wouldn't be erroneous to use as a Shadower since if you have too high of attack you can't lure mobs as efficiently as you would if you are weaker, here's the evidence:
inner ability so on last weeks maplehood where they gave the IA circulators, my shad got "increases damage increases +20% when attacking Boss Monster" (idk why its worded that why) on 1st line for legendary IA. i don't know much on IA, do i keep that? what are the best lines for shad? thanks :)
Why is Chief Bandit now a tanking class w/o REG. sb? The regular savage blow is gone so at least i get to mob at blowfishes at aqua road in second job to lvl fast, but shadowers used Savage blow in their moving chain combo of attacks well into 4th job in maple history. Also, the bandit class is broken since the flashjump should only be activated when you double jump but it gets activated when you hold down the arrow keys attack and get hit by a monster, making your design for attack really messed up. Don't you think Nexon should fix the flashjump problem at least?
Do Shadowers benefit from decent SI? Got 2 nodes and was wondering if you guys recommend using it or not! Also - SI > CO or CO > SI?
Am Shadower, switching to NL worth it? Just curious, how much are decent claws? Also will my nodes for my Skill nodes for Shadower be deleted if I switch? One last question: IS IT WORTH IT?
Smokescreen I know it blocks drain and 1hitko Ark. What else does smokescreen stop or block. I have tested it a few times, but still unsure what it exactly stops.
Boomerang Step combos? I remember it used to be ideal to use Boomerang Step (yes, STEP) and another ability instead of just simply spamming Boomerang Step. Is that still a thing or is spamming the correct way now? Also, in terms of 1v1 DPS, would doing BStep -> Assassinate -> BStep -> Assassinate be the correct rotation or simply spamming Assassinate?
How to use Meso Explosion effectively? With the current meso explosion, I have had trouble using it to its fullest, due to the delays/pause between moves with it. How do people use it effectively?
The learning curve of the game is the main factor Since a mapler learns that the button on the keyboard lets them replace the attack keys with what feels more comfortable, I enjoy playing a shadower since I can chain assault on ctrl, savage blow on shift, and the upward, poppy movement of band of thieves on z. If you try this combo on a demon avenger, your keys would get stuck when you use the sweeping move, you literally would be stuck to the floor when you attack very often, and the savage blow would be the fastest attack that is faster slightly when tested in comparison to the sweeping move of the avenger. If this was not the case that the learning curve of the game is what attracts myself to play the game, there are plenty of other mmor
Is the new ME clunky for you? So with the most recent patch update, ME now has a much quicker cast time. In addition, you'll only be able to drop 15 mesos max with pickpocket. The idea of this is to weave in ME between your skills (BS or Assassinate). But when I tried to do it, it seems difficult to weave ME between skills because if I try to do it quickly, I'll end up casting ME twice in a row. If I try to do it slowly, I'm losing out on damage because my BS or Assassinate would then be slower. Do you guys feel the same? Should I just practice more to get more accustomed to the timing of the skills? You can't macro ME to BS/Assassinate either, so that option is out the window.
Should we change our hyper skill set-up? So with the new ME revamp I'm kind of confused in what is better now. Should we put a point into any of the meso explosion stuff and sacrifice maybe like +20% boss damage from nate or bstep's +20% damage? (I'm at 280% boss not including the hyper's +20%. I also do not cap 100% of the time with nate on pdr bosses like Gollux) ME is a secondary attack now so it makes sense to upgrade it over, say, bstep?
Question on Assassinate Skill I have a question regarding the skill assassinate. At max Level, assassinate does 635% damage on the initial cast, and 710% on the final cast The description says: Damage increases by 154% in dark sight Damage increases by 150% when body count is 3 Also advanced darksight have a 5% final damage The question is how dark sight and max body count affects assassinate damage, whether it is multiplied through or added, also I'm pretty sure after assassinate damage is increased, then the 5% final damage goes into play
Playing effectively So I made a Shadower recently in Reboot after a long hiatus and have a couple questions 1. I ended up NOT maxing Midnight Carnival, did I mess up? 2. Is there a certain combo that you guys use to make your damage output more effective? For example I noticed that with Shadower Instinct on, you can stack up to 3 body counts if you attack 3 times, which I assume makes your other attacks stronger, and it resets after I use Assassinate. So I've been doing 3 BS -> Assassinate usually. 3. How useful is Meso Explosion and Dark Flare? I remember awhile back ME didn't have a cooldown, so I'm wondering if its even that effective anymore. Thats all for now, thank you for your inputs!
Crit Chance on Shadower Should I build crit chance? I just feel like with Prime Critical there's no need for me to actually build it. What's your opinion?
KMS Shadower Videos Hey guys, anyone know good channels for kms shadower videos? I'm really falling in love with shadower lately (big numbers <3), and I want to see some videos of them bossing/ training etc. Many of the videos on youtube have titles in Korean, does anyone know the Korean characters for "shadower"? Thanks! #shadowerpride
