Trying to make Lightning Dash Work
« on: 02 June 2019, 14:22:45 »
so i just read lightning dash had been reworked.. i still wonder why it's not in the changelog.. anyways

Spoiler for Hiden:



this was this character.. so this was played as a caster.. always xmax x3 from lvl 1

just start of legendary.. atlantis map in both normal and epic not yet completed.. that's with +4 all skills and 80% CDR

not perfect though.. awful low OA and attack speed.. but with 80% CDR, it's phantom strike abuse clobberin' time.. that's me and my permanent doppelganger.. so kill speed should be fine? maybe

dream image is weird.. to make the most of it, you need +4 and 80% CDR.. but it likes to attack with weapon so you need to equip a good weapon too or else it's damage is weak.. that's kinda hard to do except with a staff.. meh that's too corny.. or with str and dex only but focusing on CDR, but it's not for this character

will i continue playing it like this or do i switch back to caster? i don't know yet.. this is melee + caster anyway.. if i continue this way i spend my 14 unused stat points and all succeeding stat points on dex for higher OA.. if i switch back to full caster, everything goes to int

advantage of lightning dash over psionic touch? lightning dash only cost 6 skill points.. psionic touch requires awful lot of skill points.. i just learned a hybrid melee prophet requires an awful lot of skill points.. i don't even have lightning bolt and i still haven't maxed storm nimbus tree

maybe another time i'll try to create a hybrid melee oracle.. if i find myself enjoying playing again
i are TQ titans
i are many people

I just tried the new lightning dash, at level 8 you get 26% change of +200% total damage which is not bad at all! with 80% CDR it has 0.2 seconds cool down (which is faster than the fastest attack speed, which means you use it every single time).

I like the changes done to the dash, i'm still not sure it's a level 40 ultimate though!

Hmm I think  a good candidate is a spear using sage. Dex/int, there is some interesting new dex based gear with Atlantis. spear for the highest base damage. I guess you could go clubs as well and then go paladin or something, it's just I think sage will stack neatly when you throw in the 50% damage converted to elemental head and chest item. There might not be that many places to spend points in hunting though, there is the option of the spear dance thing now, otoh as a paladin could still go for a spear build as lightning strike is CDR dependent. Or go for the new atlantix axe for damage conversion.

If you don't go that route I'd say warfare is the way to go, you still benefit from the 200% total damage, which is very nice, but it means you won't be using onslaught which is one of the better lmb options. Still it would allow you to get standard, horns, and with strength stacking I think the damage would be decent.

I'll make some accomplished heroes and mess around with it. Usually if I can get it to sort of work on one of those chars it will do well fully geared out.

I think a good use is to spread Electrical Burn around.  Just zip around from one group to the next and let them burn.  Not sure how well this would work on legendary though.

an alternative is using it as a one point wonder skill.. this is a clip i recorded from before 2.7 (v2.6)

actually i found another use of lightning dash.. if you bind it to RMB (not LMB), you don't need a target for it to dash.. you can click on the ground and it will dash.. but the catch is, you only dash if you use a ranged weapon.. i haven't tried with a staff but it works with bows and thrown weapons.. also, because it only works with ranged weapons, the dashing distance is limited

i haven't touched 2.7 yet so i don't know if there have been changes

the uses i see are:

1) one point wonder

2) hybrid

3) staff (meh)

I havenít bought Atlantis yet but this ability is one of the most exciting ones to look forward to. I think a Thane with lightning dash might be super fun.
