    To be fair the only thing AV did was give everyone every skill. That's not balance, thats just throwing shit at the wall and letting stick as it may.

    If more shit sticks to the wall it's more pieces for the newbies coming to select from. That's why.

    it didn't "work", the players just selected the few competent pieces of shit to work with.

    Not sure how adding in more viable choices for players is complicating it further.

    Combat has/had (dfo) an incredible amount of viable choices already

    Just because you can't toggle specializations for everything doesn't mean choices aren't there. And now by extension these specializations will likely be meta gear locked

    3 or 4 mages side by side might all look the same, but can each have very unqiue setups and playstyles

    Aggressive/ray+melee
    Passive/splash+kiting
    Statting/support
    Hybrid of each the above

    These are just 4 examples off the top of my head

    And if robes are viable you satisfy yet another group of people who want to be a mage wearing robes instead of a hybrid gear setup.

    I don't see the problem with that.

    indestructible give to much elemental defense( 7 points )....i hope you nerf it....please try 5 points in pts.
    robes need a magnitude bonus ( robes rank 100 8% bonus magnitude) and more elemental defense....make possible enchant robes...

    Keep in mind you need your melee weapon out to get the bonus, mages typically try to avoid casting in melee so it's not as good as it sounds.

    The new metal armors are veilron and neithal, so it should be weaker than infernal. Keep in mind you're losing 40% destroyer damage, that's worth a lot. You also lose all your advanced magic, it's expensive!

    How strong is the indestructible offensively though? I think it's normal for both the mage and the indestructible to deal significantly less damage.

    No bspikes helps destros FAR more than it hurts them.

    @Billy Lee I think the last time I landed a destro hit on someone was a fight against Disco like... over a year a go. No paperdoll lock means no remotely competent player is going to take a staff hit(I'm not saying bring back paperdoll.... I hated it. I AM saying that destro is usually worthless and mage killer tends to be the biggest reason we win now).

    I assume you're referring mostly to 1v1 though, in group play it's pretty common to get destroyer hits. I agree about magekiller, for sure. I also agree about your point on battlespikes but I know Gutz is referring to wof being tough to deal with and I agree.
