    I don't understand your complaint. You said everyone who plays Q7 is a spammer, then silverseas said, Nope, I don't spam. Then, you said, Well you should be spamming, that's the goal. It seems to me that your advice to silverseas is this: If you want the game to be harder, use less good sets/equipment/etc. This totally misses the point of silverseas's post.

    The main point is that the game does not favor skill, does not have depth, and is not as fun as it once was. The devs tried to add an elemental affinity system, but it is mostly pointless. That is, it needs a lot more work in order to actually affect gameplay.

    The game is dying little by little and they don't do anything to improve it, on the contrary they are ruining it, the last events in these months have left me with a bad taste of what's coming.

    I keep playing because I hope other similar games will come in my Spanish language. :)

    No, you misunderstand. The point of the thread is me sharing why I am still playing the game. It is not, "why am I still playing the game?" That is, this thread is declarative, not interrogative. If you were going along with the thread, you would have posted why you still play, not critique other people's play styles and preferences.

    Unfortunately, it is you who does not understand. Look, a SW has 100 mana by default. If I strip off every piece of gear except the Q7 set, there is no way I can spam
    You know why? Because meteor costs 50 mana to cast, FS another 50 (refunds depending on how many targets hit). After maybe 2-3 FS, I would have no mana left. So if casting a skill 2-3 times in a row counts as spamming, you're playing the wrong game. Probably should go for a game where one hit = one kill.

    The reason mages can "spam" skills is because they have either Q8 to reduce the mana cost or else Q1 to increase their base mana pool. So maybe redirect your hate towards our torsos, not Q7. :p

    In any case, SW is not nearly as burst-y in terms of damage as say... a ranger with EA. We are not nearly as tanky as a DK is, therefore we cannot really serve the function of a tank. Nor do we have turrets that do all the work for us like a dwarf. Therefore, SWs rely on this so called "spamming" for DPS.

    It's clear to me you haven't seen a highly skilled SW using Q7 playing, or you wouldn't be saying what you say. There is so much more that can be done than just "meteor and spam FS" as you say.

    You also mentioned elemental affinity in your first post. Like I have detailed in a post in another thread, even a Q7 set user should be switching to Lightning Strike for some bosses. If the Q7 SWs you have played with are not aware of that, then they are noobs/lazy, but that is the fault of the player, not the set.

    It's alright dude. This is how some people derive their enjoyment. I would post the meme I posted the other day about people who constantly trashtalk the game and are still playing, but the mods would just edit it out again. :D
