Here's mine for AW, and here's for Raven..

Your AW build seems to be good..but as for solo play, I would like to get the cat..but dont know where to take 3 sp..maybe 1sp  from MP and 2sp from chakra illusion? is it worth?

But Chakra Illusion still serves as trigger of LOD EXi. If the reset of EXi upon hitting Chakra Illusion is removed, then yes, maxing this skill is no longer useful.

I didn't take cat because it's now light elemental, and only took level 1 attack % of the previous lvl 7 cat.

Open Edge(3) Rake(3) Rake Instant(3).
Only rake and rake EXi gives you 3 spoils. Open edge gives 1
Also Umbra can damage as much as your crowstorm so not using it every time is waste of dmg potential(IMO ofc)

Yes reset is removed but instead LoDEXi itself now has 3sec cd so maxing chakra illusion is still needed to spam

If this is true, then here's your answer aegis, LOD EXi should be better up most of the time than the light attribute cat.

Here's mine.

Ripper PVE 1 With 11 Rain Drop
Ripper PVE 2 Pure Fire
Ripper PVP

Raven PVE 1 With 11 Mortal Blow
Raven PVE 2 Pure Dark

PVE: Ripper & Raven
Before Awakening, I do have rain drop on my ripper, and mortal blow on my raven as I feel they lack of skills and need extra filler with 'OK' dmg
After Awakening, I dont know yet, whether to still have a mix build, or having a pure build

Input from you guys will be appreciated ^^ thanks

5 Second Awakening skill w/ 12k% and 17k% board dmg you need to focus on collecting more of bubbles and there are 7 skills that has it mortal blow ain't one. My opinion btw

Yeah, as the description says you have to stand in front of the boss for Shadow Focus to work. Or just move a little bit to the side to be a bit safer. But iirc I think I remember hitting Shadow Focus from the back. Maybe it was just me or I got the damages mixed up with other skills...(tense) Do check if using Shadow Focus from the back of the boss actually works though.

Shadow focus will hit even the the back of the boss in PVE(edit cuz Im stupid)

Well actually I just tested it and in result SF mostly did damage to the boss. A few times it rrly didnt but I guess it was cuz burn effect ended

Good Sir(s) noob here just a question read the news for tomorrow's update ASSASSIN AWAKENING skill balancing stated that LOD EX (INSTAN) when using CHAKRA ILLUSION be removed is it still viable to put it up to LVL10 (knowing that it was mainly to trigger  LOD instant) or just leave it at LVL1 spend it somewhere else? Thank you (http://forum.cherryc...atch-on-25-apr/)

still max. because LOD instant CD is changed to 2-3s, and your chakra illusion is more than 3s. so everytime u use chakra illusion, LOD instant will always available

Personally still trying to figure out to take Shadow Hand or not. Is the skill going be that high of a dps compared to the main fire skills?

Idk where I should take the sp from.

Shiftblow not so high dmg actually, but with ash instant and ulti, i guess it isn't too bad. Plus quick cd to be used when all other skills is on cd.

Well I could probably drop shiftblow to 15/19 (16 with +1 wep cost), and take the hp passive to max. But idk yet, if my hp is high enuf, I feel maxing out all fire skills is prefered then hp passive.

I definitely need 1 on the hp passive, since its 15% hp for only 1sp, but the rest is just 3% ea increment, 9% total if maxed. Good, but I prefer to deal a little extra dmg from other dps skills. I'll leave my health to tankers/healers hahaha.

I think shadow hand will be quite OP. 18/18 that 576% board dmg. With the awakened thats 900% of it means 576×9 = 5184% board dmg. I actually didn't know if that's the correct way to calculate or not, but after watching some utube vids, it seem pretty good dmg, so I assume my calculation there is about right.

Good point, but looking at the awakened counter attack, having illusion step for extra tumble (or extra duration to "blocked" an attack and trigger the awakened counter atk) will be nice

Edit: I actually not sure if illusion step will trigger counter atk awakened or not. I only assume for now that it is, bc I think I heard somewhere that it is, and the skill also seem related to "dodging"

Pure PVE ripper. Everything necessary is taken, best possible build IMO
Can take 3 SP from MP passive for awake passive but it is useless garbage

This is nice and all, geting everything you could POSSIBLY cast.

keyword there is possibly. I'm having trouble using everything. LOL

DPS is still on the low side since I'm on adjustment period, however overall I'd say its a great increase. 10/10 satisfied

btw, here's what I got after 2-man-ing RUDN 4man with a friend (im using shadow hand dmg plate)

Posted Image

upon further testing it seems like shadow hand dmg plate doesnt affect the skill's damage? can anyone else confirm?

I seem to have trouble fitting in Flame Drag into my rotation. It's slow, time consuming and only does average damage.
