Warrior class – A dying breed.
Playing a warrior has its shares of problems, a leveled up one to 18 since I purchased Orbus a month ago and now I see why it’s the least class played. Especially with yesterday’s patch, I am leaving this class and picking something else. One less tank in the world of Orbus.
The warrior class needs some serious love, no wonder I do not see any tanks in the game, who wants to play this class? Here are some of the issues you will encounter trying to level a warrior:
Hitboxes: hey sometimes they will be on the floor (vulpes), sometimes they will be 6 feet above you (stag/moose), but sure enough if the mob isn’t exactly your size, you will miss them most of the time.
Combos: They don’t always land, sometimes its lag, sometimes it’s the game, sometimes it’s the wonky mechanics. This makes leveling extremely frustrating. My ranger can kill enemies that are out of his league, my warrior can barely kill stuff his own level.
Sword rush: the most garbage skill this game has to offer. Maybe you will rush 5 feet past the mob, maybe you will rush on top of him, making it so you have to take 3 steps back, losing time and probably dying in the process. Maybe you will get lucky and actually land it front of the mob….Just to have it run off to a different direction like you were attacking it from somewhere else……
PVP: a great post was already made by Wayne_S about all the issues: PvP in Orbus needs some love. (Thoughts after 150 hours and level 20 as a Warrior)
Shield Bash: Hey lets have this ability go off for no reason after a sword rush! yay!
Last night a group wanted to do the desert world boss, about 20+ players. There was only one tank and he was having internet issues so he disconnected, what happened next? Nothing the whole group waited 45 minutes to try and get a new tank but none were available, we disbanded…
If no one wants to play a warrior then that is bad for everyone. I really enjoy the warrior class as it’s the most physically demanding one, but you have to undo all the changes from yesterday’s patch for starters and seriously put some love into the issues brought forward.
EDIT: After yesterday’s patch(1/31/2018),Riley fixed the upswing and balanced the speed + strength swings, thank you Riley!!
