Oh WW has a slightly change. Now if you using SK/AP when Air current < 50, your AC Skill (like BK) will not change to Yellow.

Dont know if anyone notice but the CK skill introduction said press normal atk button before the upper kick but i couldnt see anything happens.

HurriDance: i think u r not lagging. temp needs 30 AC to activate AC skill(HD for example) while WW needs 50 AC instead. u may try tumble before AC >=30.

Yes, i noticed that too before, but got same results as you. It might just be a translation error.

No, twinny (tho we are not anymore LOL (:D) ) was referring to AC PS (Punch Smash), which requires 50 ACs unlike AC HD, (Hurricane Dance) and AC SV (Spiral Vortex) which only requires 30ACs to trigger.

I am having the same problem when playing my tempest LOL. I think I got so used on playing my main Windwalker that i cannot utilize (and appreciate) Tempest well. (T.T)

well, my inventory will appreciate your genesis necklace if that's the case (:&gt;)  (i am still here by that time though (:D) (peace) )

Whoa. Really? (oo)

Which Tempest's like that too. (tense)
Like doing pvp, I tumble to evade attack and, sees that my HD is off-cd before hand, presses the hot key for it... stops for a while, checks for whatever's wrong.
OH, RIGHT. I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH BUBBLES. (T.T)

I haven't done any nest yet after the patch. So sorry I can't confirm this too.
However, I had a troublesome run yesterday on DB. That academic floor is destructive T-T

Hi there!

Which is stronger?
This dependent on gears. However as per experienced raiders, Windwalker has a greater DPS potential than Tempest.


Which is fun to play and easy to play?
This is subjective. Personally, I enjoy playing Windwalker than Tempest because:
  • Windwalkers are more mobile aerial than Tempests
  • I honestly am not able to utilize Tempest gameplay well(maybe because I am used to WW gameplay)
Originally, back when I started playing DN, I really was going for Tempests because I love  binding shot (the animation and the skill.) However, what made me chose Windwalker is that on the selection room, I had a hard time hitting Hurricane dance, hence I became a full blooded Windwalker since then. So I guess, Windwalker is much easier to paly.

How to get air current in tempest.
Air Current (AC) is a passive skill, Tempests generates 2 AC per second. By using Hurricane Uppercut, you will get 1 AC per hit (CMIIW)


Why is air current is important?
It is important because:
  • AC allow you to use core skills more than once.
  • AC Skills amplify damage, dealing more damage.
  • With wind of recovery, max AC can heal you.
Hope I answered your queries, have a nice day ^^

So acros coming back from dead ...

I am sorry to post it here but i am just curious , but regarding DPS PvE wise , how Acrobat current cap fare vs Barbarian current cap ?

As far as i can remember Acrobats used to hide in colloseum , because they superior choice for PvP due to excellent air time during showtime (i believe?) . I remember chasing them is painfully hard , tough times ...

At Black Dragon era , PvE Acros are buff slave , the movement speed one , to make turtles drag their feet faster ...

Honestly when i go IDN-4Man with an acro (a tempest i believe , that use moving tornado) i am shocked that they can shift their gear faster than Barbarian , but somehow they need to keep attacking . Maybe i should roll as one since Acros becoming interesting ...

yes they are coming back to dead, but because many of awk coming the acro position isnt on very top anymore. yeah beacuse archer is a netral class only sh have elemental. the pure elemental job have more advantage than netral job because they have elemental buff/etc. even you choose to use ejc, your elemental can't be higher than basic elemental job.

the good thing acro is she fast and quick when casting, also have a lot evasion in pve.
+ww burst is good too, she can destroy barrier very quickly.

if acro have fd buff she will be beast. (:&gt;)

bring back the old air curent system (mad) . is harder to use in pvp now

As per experienced raiders, Acros are on Rank B for DPS potential [link]

If that was a Tempest, they do not have much bursts as Windwalkers do. In such way, they are consistent DPS. Hence Tempests needs to consistently hit attacks to maximize DPS. (This is not that difficult as Tempests can utilize their iframes for this).

Acrobat is a fun and exciting class, for me that is. You might get a little shaky at first, but it will get fun and exciting when you get to learn and love it.

Have fun! :>

Welp , it just i have certain rules to pick class ...

I will always pick melee class over ranged class , so i always thought that archers aren't my thing . But here in DN they have melee archers , so i want to forgive that old time when i almost broke my keyboard chasing after Windwalkers just to land a swing ...

And to tell you the truth my late 5 minute wife have similar face stature and hairstyle with ponytail styled Archer so , i am willing to play her ... i mean Archer class in this case maybe a Windwalker since many said Tempest is the easier one to play ...
