    Its the same as the battlerage clowns during 2.0+, nobody wants to admit their primary skillset is powerful. Battlerages mobility got balanced, lowering the skillgap for most Archers. There's no real point moaning about it tho, meta shifts about the balance.
    I'm not an Archer
    I do have a Shield
    I do not have Redout
    I have 5.2K Toughness
    I laugh at Mages and Archers and run from my life from Melee.

    Why?

    I'm a cloth user.


    Archers are not overpowered. Archers are still underpowered. If I'm in the open world and I have to get jumped by one class? I want it to be an Archer.

    If you have 5.2k toughness and you run away from melees, then you're doing something wrong :lul:

    Resil> toughness in this and the next few patches friend. If you get crit you are going to die regardless with how many steroids activate when BR crits, or someone pops zeal.

    Which brings up the point that melee and mages have waaaaaay higher crit rate than archers because their crit stats scale far better than agi does with ranged crit rate (why melee crit scales better with agi than ranged is anyone's guess.) Without intensity up you're looking at like upper 30's MAYBE 40% on a geared archer while mages and melee exceed that by a pretty freaking large margin. So if you truly want to take no damage from archers, stack resilience.

    Yeah let me tell you even with 5.2k Toughness and 4.4 Resilience, if you get caught with a Lightning Tigerstrike, a standard BR combo and closed on with a Wave Precision Strike, your life is going to be in a world of hurt.

    It's the new "git gud" skill combo that literally oneshots squishes even at 7k+ gs. There's definitely a reason they are looking to rework BR.

BR mobility is far from balanced, unless you speak of the changes in 4.0, in which case I have to admit, archery looks strong as hell in that patch, but RIGHT NOW, not even close.
    As per the thread maker, I'm talking about the 4.0 changes. Archery will be in a nice place mainly due to the other balance changes.

    Im just confused on your comment about us talking like Drs, in our current state, is all, because we very much have very easy counters that actually erase our "Delete button" from such players that use those items, while both mage and br avoid them entirely through backstab or magic dmg in general.
