Stuff You Wish Other Classes Knew About You
« on: January 18, 2012, 06:51:50 PM »
Since I started with my JC-Shadow tank, I thought the "knock stuff away from you" move was great: take less damage, right?

Except now I'm playing my JK-Sentinel dps, and realizing, oh wait, every few minutes, we build up enough resources to enable Cheat Mode, which lets us attack two mobs at the same time for a short time.

I don't know much about smugglers and I don't know crap about troopers, so if there's stuff that other people do that cramps your style, please drop a note here.  :)

That is spec dependant. Each tree uses a different stance which leads to different benefits when you pop Zen. As a Watchmen (the spec I recommend for...everything) you use Juyo Form and Centering builds up within a single rotation and can be used to make DoTs be instant crits...which heal you for 2% of your health per crit.

The knockback was annoying for me too.  With so many mobs in this game ranged, knocking them out of a cluster means most AoE doesn't work.
