    It only 1shots you if you're standing right in front of them, which makes it you're fualt if it happens. Grab a spear, bow or some magic of your own and out distance them. Roll bs the crap out of them. Vow of silence and great magic barrier will both shut them down if you can get the time to cast. There are plenty of ways around the new magic.

    Yeah, lag sucks, but lag always sucks. Whining doesn't help.

    This reminds me alot like weight loss, there are the people who want to change, put in the payments of sweat, hard work and due dillegence, and create the change they want. And then there are the others who surround them self with people tell them it's ok and it's societies fault and talk them out of wanting to change and to adapt.

    Yes lag sucks but it will always suck so adapt.

    Agree with what this man said

    People who cry about Dark magic are the same people who cry about BS
    and because they never accept BS as a legit mechanic in the game
    They can't punish magic user
    seriously............ if you can't roll BS, then you are hopeless against dark bead

    Dark Bead doesn't give you easy kill with low stat investment
    With no Dex, it has a cast time of about forever
    and unless you take full hit at 0 distance.........it doesn't OHKO

    And people talk about lagging.......
    I only met those lagging mage maybe 1 every 10 mage I encounter
    Lets admit it, when you take full hit from dark bead
    you were actually running into a mage when he is not in recovery frame of any action

    IMO, Dark magic is not even powerful in 1 on 1 PVP situation......
    Dark magic casters are very predictable and easy to roll BS
    just look at the SL 100 leadboard as evidence
    You don't see many if any Dark magic caster in higher ranking
    it is because such tactic can be easily counter and are not effective at all against good player

    WOTG on the other hand are different story
    iWOTG user who knows how to pivot cancel are extremely hard to counter
    if u attemp to roll BS them, it becomes a 50/50 guessing game

    (imo) a better use of the casts is to interrupt roll poke sprees or to stun someone out of a bs attempt or sloppy attack.

    LOL. Nice gif. That used to tick me off, but now it just makes me laugh (especially if they are wearing the MoC - that just fits so perfectly).

    Indeed, almost everyone I've faced decides that the best way to fight a mages is to run up to them and start smacking away... things rarely go well for them.

    That's actually the best way. Or would you instead try to beat a mage from a distance? Get a little close to him and wait for him to cast, then roll-BS. Rinse and Repeat.
