99% of all wizards & witches, maybe even 99% of the entire player base has been playing incorrectly by not “gemming” appropriately. For the past ~2 years (on & off due to blowing up gear) I’ve been winning against most classes I fight against even if I was at soft cap & they were the same or more geared. The way I’ve been able to win so many fights is by stacking as much resistance as possible. Even if you max out at 60% resist for PvP, the opponent usually has two ignore resist 10% gems which brings you below 60%. So I stack 100%, then I’m basically being guaranteed to have the max 60% while fighting. The game has largely been, the first to get CC’d dies. I have not been soft cap for the last few months due to blowing up my gear ~6 months ago; just started trying to get it back. I still deleted 5 guys at soft cap or slightly below around Christmas in a 5v1. But lately I’ve been on Arsha fighting much more geared players & while it’s taking time to “get the feel” again, I’m now also having trouble with the Forward F “buff”. Even though I don’t have full soft cap again yet, It feels like my traditional build method of stacking resistance is becomes less effective when fighting pen players. There are some optimizations for stacking even more resistance is but I don’t know if it’s worth it has anyone seen something in the patch notes maybe I missed something with regards to resistances being diminished or more skills with 100% chance to stun knock down etc. ?
