IIRC, slayer hit a massive nerf on the last few patches.. to the point you rarely see someone playing slayer.. even one of the known slayer player " flowroro " switch to a new class...
im coming back to the game with fresh account, and wanting to main slayer..
What are the slayer playstyle?
do we have any "lock" combos..
Are we on par- with other dps classes?
Are we wanted in 3's? GvG? BG?
im not shur if this answer your questions but, its good that the slayers are geting nerf there stuns are insane thos brawlers n slayer are the 2 class i get scared to 1v1 in pvp cs
We are in a decent spot atm. Not as strong as the 3 new classes but if you know what you are doing you can get good results. You just have to really know your class and the match ups. You can do well in all 4 battle grounds. The typical "styles" are stagger locking, kd combining and trying to stun lock. Our stuns are our weak spot actually because their duration is rng and compared to other classes they are short. Overall it's like the other vanilla classes, you have to really know the class to get great results.
If ur gonna learn to slayer pvp be prepared to get ur [filtered] handed to you by everyone till you either outskill or outgear them
Probably the best way to answer this is, which class you're fighting? At times your best option is to stagger/stunlock. The other option is to do straight dps and burst someone down with evis measure combo.
The basic combo is 1st auto attack, fury strike, stunning backhand, dash, run to their back, startle kick, overpower, heart thrust, eviserate, overand, Measure slice. If you land this it's about 90-100k damage in full tensus with all crits. [Maybe more depending on how well you crit, have etchings, or crystals idk man]
One way to throw healers off in 3's is to lock them down, kd them, or stagger them before heals, kaias, or cleanse. Always backstab sleeps. My advice for throwing healers off is to distant blade them near start, put them in combat so they are a little less mobile.
