    In this video I am using my usual bearach set and yes the latency is a little high
    I could have probably fine tuned my killing better I have found doing rageful swing for a quick single click is a lot better.
    So bear in mind the latency, bear in mind the unpracticed clicking but just watch that bear health go down xD
    much higher damage is ofc very possible and the speed from the buffs used already got some of it now with 17% pet and the normal 2 hour buff am looking to get more speed after full moon and ofc someday when I land 45% gloves (about 9 months from now)

    I am sorry, but how much you tried to convince yourself, DK Bearach set is subpar compared to the mighty Herald set.

    Herald set is and have been the ultimate pinata buster for a very long time
    The thing is how the bear set works, rageful swing happens at 1.25 of your base 90% of the time
    Bloody wild swing happens at 0.8 of your base all the time with its bleed
    Bearach set is not stronger than q7 the reason is the smash speed from q7 is unbeatable
    But in maps it is stronger, it clears faster, smashes from the bear set bonus happens at 300% of your base and you are able to do 300% base smashes all the time not, if you perhaps land a hit with something, its generally guaranteed
    To compete with the herald set you will need 3.6 attack speed.
    Anyways the bear set is capable of bigger smashes on pinks and reds ever since the unique lines have been implemented.
    With the new mighty Sargon set coming, and if it has 50% increased damage, well then combined with the dragan set, it will still not beat q7, but it will be the OP'est farming setup there is.

    Excuse me friend, can you tell me more about this sargon set that you are talking, because i live in a cave and i dont know about this (if you know ofc) for example what parts will have, what bonuses and so on.

    Wish I knew for sure but its merely mere speculation <- from me but founded with the release notes on r217 that mighty shadow portals has been added.
    Also in this thread of mine
    You will see the offensive set"I created", however there is a torso shoulders and helm, with new stats and taking the "mighty" part into the equation there is a slight possibility that this is what the mighty sargon set will give.
    That % is based on the fact that back in the day the mighty witch seeker set gave 50% increased max dmg
    Who wants max dmg when you can have damage?
    Also I read I think in the forum that there was speculation about sargon returning on instagram

    Just a note; they were not added but rather they were updated. Just like all the others that have not been used for a while. DDH passes were discontinued but the others were left in the game.

    So there is plenty of room for speculation about future events and gear. :)

    p.s. I still have some of all those including Sargon (except the mighty ones... maybe on an alt acct I have not checked for a while.)
    Hello. My name is Mikey and I am a hoarder :D

    As long as I am still able to get the dragan set, I am happy :D

    Agreed. I do like the prospect of bringing back updated sets from the other old events as well. If nothing else both Sargon and essence sets look cool :cool:

    Regarding the Bear set, it is still one of my favorite sets for other DKs to use. :D

    The Bear set synergizes well with the BWS group support skill, and increases the damage output of any DK in the group with the Bear set user. When I'm in group with someone using the bear set, I appreciate their sacrifice of soloing prowess in support of making my damage even more insane. :p:D:p

    Perhaps. But, who wants to use two weapons? One for maps and one for the Boss?
    I like if we had a choice, I would have preferred not only Bear weapon would have been a good alternative.
    I prefer to have even more choices. In a game like this, I would have liked to see about 10 different choices, choices for 2-hander versus 1-hander DPS build. Choices between swords, maces and axes.
    But someone at BigPoint decided it is easier to balance classes, if they provided a single cookie-cutter build. So easy to balance right?
    They can't even seem to balance this single build, so, I don't know what to say about additional possible weapons/builds.

    In fact it could have been better anyways.

    With way more possibilities, it could have been harder to compare and thus at least impossible to prove unbalanced :D :D :D

    Its not about using 2 or even 3 weapons
    Its about having choices like spellweavers have, they can use any of the 3 big sets and be good.
    1 in 3000 rangers use q4 set or only weapon crafted
    1 in even less use bloodrune weapon crafted
    Am not counting the noobs in these stats.
    dks more or less the same as rangers in ratio.
    The only mec I have ever seen with q4 set is Paavel, and he is so loud and robust he mostly gets banned on groups and forums xD
    He also has a communication problem since his main language is not english so he has trouble expressing himself.
    But he stated that with his tesla turrets he can clear maps faster than any q7 wielding mec.
    In general I believe that most players are misguided about the q4 set as an option at all.
    All damage players think to themselves they want to be the ultimate pinata buster.
    I tested the desert beetle with my dk on agathon the other night and it took me a mere 3 seconds to take him down.
    Bear in mind I was alone on the map, so no hp boosts to the beetle from other players etc.
    We are all well aware that for top end game players the need for a tank has been eliminated totally
    Anyways what I am trying to point out is that the q4 set for any class is the ultimate support damage set.
    Think about it I heal players 21% hp per crit per second and am still able to do 300% base damage smashes
    Mecs have huge tesla turrets, thus shielding players in a bigger effect area and damaging foes.
    Rangers makes huge groups of mobs bleed and wheneve a damage only player comes along half the hp is gone already.
    Mages are able to leave hordes eletrocuted and able to do huge elemental damage to most bosses too.
    Support damage all the way.
    Its like @_Baragain_ stated, q4 is a much more synergistic kind of set.

    Not sure about the others, but since stunning was removed and FS damage was increased I am using lightning almost only on bosses...
