Several questions re Grand Cross

Recommended Posts

> How is this affected by the server-exclusive MATK computation?

> How does this skill behave when used by a bow-type Stalker?

> How does this skill fare in this revo-classic server?

> Would there be changes/reversions on how this skill works? Should/Would this skill be made great [again]?

1.) MATK buff should just be a straight buff, not sure how much it affects it. i believe the formula is about equal, but STR/ATK seems to be slightly more favored than INT/MATK probably because of the 0.5% weapon attack in renewal stats for STR.

 

2.) it should behave the same? remember grand cross is NOT buffed by card % dmg so it doesnt matter what type of cards (say archer skeleton on a bow) would do. A bow would probably be bad due to its lower attack and less than ideal size mods. (even tho they are decent compared to say a dagger)

3.) Grand Cross is about the same as it was in classic, but because everything else is better now, its kind of fallen behind its holy cross counterpart. While its not the ideal build, it can still be a fun situational build if you are built specifically for it. and it can still do good damage.

4.) they've talked about it in length before the server launch and i think it was about 70/30 that it should not be buffed. its weaker, but it doesn't necessarily need a buff to be viable. I think people should remember that not everything has to be "meta" to be viable. If you go all out and specifically build for most abilities that aren't total garbage (and grand cross isnt) it will do work.

Thanks for the insightful answers! Although I have some additional questions:

> With the fixed cast-time of skills disabled in this server, could a cast-time lower than 1.5 sec be achieved?

> Would this skill be viable for PvP/WoE?

I would say its kind of impractical for PVP/WoE personally as you will deal more damage to yourself then you will to the enemy with all the reductions players get. its main strength is AOE farming specific types of mobs weak to holy like Undead/Shadow type.

 

As for lower than 1.5 seconds I cannot tell you exactly but I recall having a pretty decent cast time without investing a ton of dex into it on the last revo server I played on. Considering the build gets a lot of int its likely you'll get some dex for early leveling as well and that helps with cast time. I can't promise the exact cast time but if you are worried about it being slow as molasses i wouldn't worry about it. In Revo its much easier to get good cast times without investing in a boat load of dex. especially if you invest in int. (int gives cast time in renewal mechanics)

You will not be able to achieve instant cast but you don't need it.
