Seismic Slash- PvP

Postby Thë_Täxmän_Cän » Wed Aug 06, 2014 11:32 am

Guys... Id like to know why seismic slash is sooooo irrelevant at higher levels. I have an accuracy enchant but still I may hit seismic slash once in every 10 matches. No other attack is as inaccurate as SS. Several times ill use SS when the opponent isnt blocking or using a defensive buff and I get nothing. Its to the point where im willing to just take SS out of my talent tree at this level... am I doing something wrong here?

Seismic has the same chance of hitting as any other attack. The only reason it's so noticeable is because it's such a huge game changer when it lands. My SW, for example, has 12% block, 56% dodge. So seismic only has a 32% chance of landing when I don't defend, and a 2% chance of landing if I do defend. But any melee attack has the same % of landing.

What is the chance for Smoke Bomb to land, in general matches?

Precisely. I can defend and be 100% confident it won't. I cant say that about any other kb.

Seismic isn't broken and comparing it smoke bomb in this debate is pointless. Smoke exists because without it a SW couldn't do enough damage to remain competitive.

DW Sticky bomb answerd the "non competative" remark.

Doesnt work like that....


If u have 12% block and 56% dodge that means:
A jc to land his seismic need to overcome ur block and dodge.

So basically: he has 88% chance to overcome your block and 44% chance to overcome your dodge. But he need to overcome both. So he has 88% x 44% = 38,72% chance to success his attack when you dont defend.

And when you defend. Block is +20 and dodge + 10. That become a 32 % block and 66% dodge. So 68% chance to overcome the block and 34% to overcome the dodge. So he has 68% x 34%= 23,12% to success his attack....
