View Full Version : Sympathetic Anguish PvP?

10-21-2014, 08:42 PM
Idk if i should have started this at the pvp section, but this regards an op skill so i started it here. besides, the op section has been catching dust these days.
I do know that the jump effect and all that from the symp ang skill does not work in pvp. but i see that a lot of ppl use it in pvp, and its still seems to be a major skill almost all twinks use.
I also do know that this skill provides a significant, huge damage at a crit.
This is all I know. What else is so special about this skill in pvp?

Im nub thx.

It's ok, I use it on my 21 and 50, but then again, I just use it because no one else does :|

The jump effect does work in PvP however, the percentage for it to happen is fairly low (I've seen it happen before). It does have a higher critical rate similar to Mind Wrack and similar damage rate, however the only thing that really makes it different from using Mind Wrack is the skill regeneration time. Being much slower than Mind Wrack, I wouldn't recommend it unless you are using a high damage build. Using a skill with slow down time can be easily replaced by a skill that can regenerate faster for similar damage output.

Example 1: (This is just an example and do not reflect actual gameplay.)
Anguish used once: 13 Damage unless critical which would be about 41.
Mind Wrack: 13 Damage + Faster regeneration for another 13 Damage= 26

In this scenario, Whether Anguish gets a critical hit or not, Mind Wrack would be more viable. If Mind Wrack get's a critical hit, It would already surpass Anguish for damage output.

Example 2:
Anguish: 13 damage unless critical hit which would be 41.
Flame: 7 damage for 5 seconds + faster regeneration for another DoT= 70 Damage not including possible critical hits.

Overall, Anguish can be easily replaced, however it is still a good option for twinks and endgamers. In my opinion, it is not the best option for twinking. Happy twinking! ^^

Anguish is for kiting because it's a fast skill like mind wrack. Yeah as rei said mind wrack has faster
Regen time so u can use it again sooner than anguish. And neural shock is slow and heavy, so it's kinda common to be used for walling in twink or bullrush.
