    Mages are not a problem at all while fighting them... as an ebonsong 10k gs with t3 hiram epic bow and only t2 crit damage gems... i do have 102% crit chance base without our 20% skill so I always crit. even if people have stacked resilience... The real issue is still mele which could be helped by going stone arrow possibly but i haven't tried it. I don't need steady aiming to 3 hit mages. I also use the gale version of charged bolt. stalkers + backdrop + concussive arrow + blazing arrow + charged bolt + endless arrow if they're even still alive by then...

    coming up trickster will be the new meta anyways then we can all be mages...
    hmm..

    Songcraft is broken and already scheduled for nerfs in kr, so dont pat yourself on the back too hard over critting a 300%(being generous here, i know yall songers can do more) concussive zeal proc. Dont lie to archers lacking gear and saying mages arent a problem. You just have the gear to make it seem so. I could sit here and say I've beaten 11k reapers and spellsingers too, as a now 9.1k shadehunter, but that doesnt mean its as ez as 123 unless youre fighting the worst mages in this game. And backdrop concussive? Come on bro, who doesnt use that combo? It's not "Can we kill mages?" its "How easily can a mage kill us?" Backdrop> lightning firebolt. Gg. As an ebonsong, you already lack any hard cc, you're all dmg, so the moment a singer/reaper gets a stun or freeze on you, 80% of the time its lightning meteor flame barrier maybe godwhip for fun, and you guessed it, backdrop > lightning flamebolt for 25 shots of 1k-3k dmg each.

    Now if you're making minse meat out of mages like you say you are (granted, im looking at this in a more 1v1 situation) list the names of some of the mages on the current rankings (top 50 of all servers if you may) and I'll reach out to them, and see what it is they feel defeats them, when facing you.

    I just find it funny that I find Melee the absolute easiest classes to fight against, archers second, and mages the most difficult, when they know how to cc you and spam lightning flamebolts, because thats all a T7 leg+ mage needs to do to win a fight in this crit meta. How is a mage ez, yet a melee hard, when you can hit them atleast 2 times before they get near you, with mages often using a shield in 1v1s, giving them more defense than leather and only a 10-15% dmg loss, excluding crits?

    Why are you using gale charged, if not to perma kite melee with songcraft?? If you cant kite melee with songcraft and galebolt, you definitely need all the dmg you can get out of basic or even flame charged bolt.

    Edit: resilience is being buffed to fix its current affect not actually applying the way it should. Resilience is basically a dummy stat, with the illusion of actually helping, because currently it has a chance to not work at all, soon to be changed to a 150% reduction at minimum (wooh), so killing res stacked players is almost like killing players with no gems at all.

    Secondly, whats your character name, if you dont mind me stalking you on the leader boards?

    Forgive me Bunny, after a discussion in another thread, I came to realize it's really not as hard as I made it out to be. I apologize, to you and anyone else that took my argument to heart.
