Its funny, I have learned so much since I have been PvPing on SA, and the other server, but I still suck at hally cycling. Its totally RNG+RNG and that is not good. Hitting with melee is RNG, however my hally cycles are RNG as well, so when the two come together its just not good
That is the main weapon, the main source of damage, the main mechanic, the halberd. Yet even tabbing out to not mess up my cycle while getting a Gheal off I still struggle vs anyone good at hally cycling. I mean and I don't use invis, teleport and or especially do not run as nearly as much vs another tank mage 1v1. No matter what weapons they are using, I will never invis or teleport vs another tank mage in the field unless they invis or teleport first these days. That goes for reactive armor as well.
Vs what id consider a stocked dexxer, yea I am going to use invis and teleport.
However, I feel like running again in PvP. I mean some think I still run too much, but if someone watched my videos from a month ago
. Its like night and day difference on the running gameplay. I won't even off screen another tank mage in a 1v1 now, generally speaking. However I am so bad at hally cycling I will likely lose to you if you are good at it if I don't run.
