    Dude.. any healing class is a counter to DR..
    so be it Argent/ Paladin / inquisitor and so on...
    i main Templar so i play Paladin off spec with my healing gear, and DR is the target i kill the easiest.

    As long as you can cancel their 15sec CD burst, you have the open field to take them down.. you just have to absorb their first hit because they will hit you first.. Hence why people think DR is OP...
    It's always been the first one to strike to have a huge advantage in AA.

    i can understand each build type having its own little specialty, but for those not doing the big raid stuff, but just trade packing, gearing up and day to day quests, are they to be made to be just absolutely terrible. And if that is the case, what would you recommend to the newer player coming up as a mage. get armor, a shield and carry an axe! or we will always be a quick easy kill for anyone who specs DR, which is alot of people now.

    You should be running a shield if you're a mage vs DRs. There's no other arguement. Sure you may get to free cast a single arc lightning and one shot someone, but then you're a mark.

    I recommend 4pc anthalons with 3 obsidian fillers. An obsidian shield, flute and weapon are also beneficial at the right tiers.

    Jesus this thread *facepalm*

    Yea Dark Runner is so clearly amazing that's why it's the best open world raid v raid class in the game for doing damage.. NOT lol. Revenant, Skullknight, Spellsinger, Abolisher are all far more valuable RvR classes.

    Oh yea Dark Runner is so clearly amazing that's why it's the best 1v1 arena class in the game... NOT lol. Paladin and Argent >>>>>> pretty much anything else.

    Witchcraft Nerfs:
    1. Mudhand cast time (even with passive that used to make it instant)
    2. Reduced Damage of fiend, reduced time for fiend, longer delay for fiend to be recast.

    Defense Nerfs:
    1. Redoubt seems only to stop push, can now be tripped by DR with redoubt up.
    2. Shrug it off from auromancy does not give the same bonus to revitalizing cheer, the self heal is nerfed.
    3. Toughen is a joke, it no longer generates any metal to speak of
    4. Cheer got the nerf with reduced metal in toughen, and the lesser boost from shrug

    Basically the ability for the dream breaker to heal quick got a serious nerf. Dream breaker was an OP counter to DR. Now it is pure trash.
    lol this guy plays/played a witchraft + defense class, one of the cheesiest things you could ever do in arena, then makes a thread about DR's being overpowered. Irony too strong.

    60% of people are morons. I don't think the population of DR is even that much, let's pretend it's the most popular class in the game though. Well that's because

    A. It's fun
    B. It's versatile
    C. Most importantly... It is by far the biggest "gear gap" closer class in the game

    It is not the best class. Go tell anyone who's ever done serious raid v raid content that they should all spec darkrunner "cuz it's teh most op"

Mobility is their key to survival, deny them that and they are seating ducks.
    Sitting ducks? They have some of the highest mitigation skills in the game. Bondbreaker -50% physical damage and shrug -50% magic damage. They have the most mobility, close to the highest burst damage in the game, and have amazing defensive abilities. They are the best class in the game.

    They aren't the main reason that raid v raids fights are won.

    Wasn't this thread started because someone believes they are the BEST class in the game and are the main reason any fight is won?
    They are not the best class and it has been proven there are so many different counters to DRs in open world, arena, and raid v raid.

    You don't get it, not everything in this game takes place in a 50v50 raid. And XL has been nerfing the classes that counter Dark Runners since at least 1.7.
    Truth:


    Trion and XL games hates everything I say because its the truth and stings like fire.
    Exposing the weaknesses in your circuit would send most to react in a way to fix the chain.
    Instead we get to see an awkward teen afraid of its flaws hiding them under the rug.

    He also doesn't realize the change to throw dagger in 2.9 made darkrunners even better at raid vs raid. You heard it here, raid vs raid will NEED darkrunners for GCD debuffing in order to win. Throw dagger right now is an instant summon wraith.
