Sword and Bored: Ranged Class

My favorite classes to play are melee. I don’t know why, but I like to be in the middle of the fray, stabbing the boss with my sword or lightsaber or other pointy object. However, I know as well as any other player the pitfalls of playing a melee class. That just doesn’t stop me from advocating the melee-friendly boss fight.

Our best friend, Mo, is now learning the problems of being a melee class and leveling up around other players who can out-distance him. However, I think Mo might actually be getting used to how this game works now. Let’s check out this week’s comic…

Vexia  Sorry that you have to deal with the “rear on head with feather sticking out” now.  I am still surprised how many MMOs fail to adapt to prevent this…

Oleg Chebeneev  … the sarcasm is strong with this one.  *I’m assuming, because anything else would result in my palm pushing my brain past Russia at supersonic speed.*

I play ranged because I am slow …. So there is a chance in a dungeon the I will actually be standing where I am supposed … Rather than running uselessly up to the mob that has already been killed.

Who holds sword like that? Seriously, authors. You should watch “300”, “Gladiator” and other historically accurate movies to learn how swordfight works before you portrait them in “comic”. And that arrow angle on third screen. It cant stick like that from where archer is standing. And what the hell with centaur dying pose on third screen? Have you ever seen anyone die like that? Head raised high, arms straight down – Its frigging superman flying pose.
I spent 3 month to read Dostoyevski’s “War and Peace” and level my IQ from 143 to 144. After reading this S&B issue its back to 143 in just few seconds. THANKS

Bad memories…. I have ran into so many games where I get ninja’d by archers and instant-cast spells…. bad memories.

I’m sorry to say that for nearly a decade, I used my arrow-shooting powers in World of Warcraft for evil, not good. :P I used to utilize my pet tank and rapidfire tagging skills to great effect for me and no doubt frustration for others. But then I realized that was a thing that asshats do, and I don’t want to be one of those.
I’m fully reformed now, and the overwhelming majority of my characters are melee fighters (tanks, typically). I suffer the same kind of ninja tagging that I used to dish out at the hands of thoughtless casters and archers. I guess it’s MMO karmic backlash for me.

camelotcrusade  That… was hardly a GW2 invention, but yes, shared credit is generally better in themeparks.
