I've seen what this ranged skill the buffalos have, and I must say..............they did a somewhat okay job. PVM wise, this new skill will be a whole new eaperience for Gladiators. training would be alot more interesting this way. However, I question on how this skill would work PVP/GVG wise. I mean, as far as what I have seen, the only way to kill an opponent is with your skills, and your skills (the non-passive skills) alone most of the time. I could see how this would work with the skill Beserk, but having no control while in Beserk can be a risky decision. Regardless, relying on melee tactics alone isn't much of a good idea considering many players having the famous defensive skills that are hard to crack through. As for the Piercing Wave skill being ranged too, I realy don't see many buffs now relying on that skill. Its all Gale Strike FTL(for-the-luck) in PVP/GVG. This skill also questions whether buffalos should rely on those DX skills anymore.
This is a intersting twist however. I just feel worrisome that Ntreev rarely gives Pure job skills as often as they give Hybrid skills.
If anyone can find a vid of this skill into action, I would like to make my calculations about it. (Don't forget, I'm a very careful and calculative strategian).
