Hi everyone, I recently posted my overall opinion on the game, which was pretty good overall. I’m not going to do all the classes in the game, but I have a serious problem with the void knight.
To talk about the VK let’s evoke before the sentinel, the starting class and the other specializations, the forge guard and the paladin.
The Sentinel is really nice as a starting class, it has really cool attacks (warpath probably the most played spell in the game, only the real ones know)
So nothing to report on this side, rather a good job.
We will quickly go to the forge guard, probably the least playful specialization, there are many subjects talking about these problems including the talent tree that I clearly find below.
The paladin is without a doubt the strongest specialization and by far, it will help a lot, the consept is good, the talent tree is good, everything is good on this specialization, except of course on the most farted annimation of the game, judgment … pity change his devs, this area so small and ugly, and the attack 0 charisma, judgment his should be heavy. In short, we had to say judgment is horrible but the paladin is good.
Now let’s talk about VK, I see a lot of problems with this character.
In my imagination and not that, the vk is a Paladin corrupted by the void, and I image it with a big two-handed weapon. As a matter of fact, it is represented when choosing its specialization. He could also be played with a shield. Let us pass already on the lack of power of the weapons with two hands compared to having two weapons, its everyone knows it. Having twice as many bonus damage affixes to two weapons and also benefited from a better attack speed what good is taking a real sword of a man.
Starting from there already the VK has an obvious problem between what it should be and what it is … It should be an enormous nag who destroys everything thanks to the power of the void and destroys all life leaving only the void behind him.
So why is 80% of VK spells for mage? Where are the big sword blows, the devastating blows. He just doesn’t have any attacks in the cac.
I know we have to talk about it Erasing strike the most useless attack in the game or almost, The annimation is cool contrary to judgment, but simply unplayable, costs too much mana, very little damage increase in the tree, and totally zero against elites or bosses. Force to play with volatile reversal, to try to make its viable, its limit the problem of the mana, but not of are useless against an elite or boss.
And let’s come to the second problem of VK beyond that none of the other spells are used to hit the enemy. You can’t use attacks from other branches, even the Sentinel’s. Why can’t we change the physical attacks and void damage. Its should be normal. This character apart from his slammed attack does no void damage, so makes his talent tree much ineffective. What can the% damage of void be used for, none of your attacks scale on the void ?
So some attacks are convertible but not the good ones, or at least they should all be. Smite is good, but again I’m not a magician I have a big barbarian sword. So good why not, but warpath, vengeance, rive ext …
Without these attacks the Sentinel is either unplayable or bad. he becomes a VK who does not hit the void but in physics, so all are talent trees that give% void damage are useless or not much, in short a nice mess. It takes several things for the void knight to be a true void knight, to be able to convert 100% of the sentinel’s attacks into void damage, to be added another attack to the branch that taps on the void, but pity not yet a throwing ball or invisible rift, a real skill to slice enemies and mow down life, and in addition to review Erasing strike, the devs must disliked the attack because it made it unplayable, he had to say, "Come on we do a super classy attack with a name that sends but a disgusting annimation. " thus was born judgment, after he creates are to oppose “come we make an attack with an annimation which sends, a description which sells the dream, but it will be slammed like never” thus born erasing strike.
