I'd like to fight a few ones, being a Tempest myself (in Holywood btw) and I just noticed they've gotten few lately.

Just wondering why... And if you want to pvp with me just pm GrassBlade

note* Holywood !! >__<

Without IF I can still pwn a few classes though. Adapt, adapt.. @.@

If you want PM me in-game too, my Tempest is Diathedia xD

I know iframe nerfs hurt, but I'm not so sure why they'll be gone because of 2 skills.

Sorry for mu unthinking posts.. I'm kinda semi-pvping right now lol

because of the IF removal

because the nerf on the lvl 55 skill (1% per level? really? are the developers on crack or something?)

because hurricane dance, given its extreme difficulty in usage compared to RS also got nerfed long ago



don't even wonder why they went windwalker, that job hardly got any major nerf at all---i mean RS just beside someone and then run away (oo;) you'd win eventually

lol... well tactics WWs use on me don't work around 2/3 and 4/5 most of the time.. xD

and even in PvE there are a few Tempests. Mostly WWs around.

Binding Shot EX + DSK EX ftw anyway but still...

feel lonely as Tempest -__-

few mins ago I waited and whenever any class come in, they come out instantly. My rank isn't even that high yet =__=

Well, except for Kali class, I don't think I don't have any difficulty, unless the enemy is a good SM/BM pilot.

Whoever Woth is here, I definitely wanna Vs with you again

1% chance of Evade is too much nerf for me even though I'm a WW user. They should give it at least a 5%.

Tips? Let the arrowz from KnS EX hit your enemy. Unlike the stereotypes there that you only need the flipping part, it's just no, NOPE NOPE not really. Arrowz from KnS EX are not a hindrance to your combos. Even I, as a WW, utilize those arrowz on my non-EX KnS. (:])

I still liek idol Tempest Superleg, so pro sir. (love)

Common insight (tense)

1. Iframe removal (in general)
2. Nerf on Evade passive (1%) - should I remove this in my build already? (mad)  (pvp wise)
3. DSK CD (10 sec) -> tho can be too OP (clap)
4. Tempests got even harder to master as compared to WW. Rising Storm (got iframe too) + EagleDiveEX (wide AoE, mini Spiral Edge? LOL + very long Spiral Kick Iframe = OP) LOL. not to mention showtime buff (sob)
5. Damage Nerf

Anyways, not all tempest can adapt to the changes, especially non hardcore gamers. Will consume a lot of effort and practice.

Despite all these, Tempest are still so OP (clap)
Long live ! (hat)

I've seen a few tempests around, but I haven't battled with the too famous ones yet xD

Still, there's a lot of WW in the colo..

ED EX sure got a good AoE and SA break btw (which breaks almost whatever skill I cast besides Tumble...) and when it's lagging it's so unfavorable since I can't time the tumble properly. The moment I tumble I also come flying too lol

The problem with the new Windwalkers now is that in the hands of a not-so-good user, all they'll be doing is kite and spam ED EX/Rising Storm and try to get some skills  chained, if not, well they kite again and repeat. For against WW's like those, just make sure to tumble the ED's and UT out of RS and you'll be fine, since most likely they have no clue on how to combo using anything other than ED, RS and 32's. And don't kite too, chase the heck out of them after ED's out.

As the case for Tempest, it really does feel unfavorable, especially for the learning ones. But it's not like it got nerfed to the point of being underpowered. Even with the nerfs, a single BS EX>DSK EX>ED can take chunks of HP off other people, you just need to make sure those hit and not desperately cast them. Extremely good ones will show you that they can pawn people with ease, and that's obviously with extreme mastery. While in the other hand, a w3walker will be happy spamming those ED EX and kite the rest of the game.

A little something to consider though, be reminded of how Tempest eclipses WW's in PvE. WW's little edge in PvP is just something to balance both classes. Either way, you should have picked a class because you like it, not because it's OP.

I thought Tempest is the one for PvP (oo) well, with her ulti like that..
Even without the IF I still see Tempests bullying another class, so.. I don't think they're weak at all. Depends on the pilot.
