    Which would do more damage in pvp? -Resolved-

    Post by XachAttack on Mon Apr 01, 2013 11:16 pm

    I'm kinda stuck between using Black Flame or Great Combustion.

    Black Flame has the immense poise breaking ability, but it does split damage (Fire/Phys). While Great Combustion just does Fire damage.

    Or, should I just use both? My 2nd attunement slot changes so often because I can't decide what to put in it.

    From testing I've seen it appears Black Flame wins on all fronts. Though attuning both cant hurt.

    When I've been hit by it, great combustion deals more damage-especially through shields. Black flame is just great for knocking shields away. I think Black Flame is better as a shield-breaker or in supplement to another weapon/spell, whereas great combustion is better as a standalone.

    I guess both will have to do. Thanks guys o/.

    EDIT: On second thought, I think I'll post a seperate topic about this tomorrow. I dislike having two of basically the same thing like that lol. I've GOT to figure this damn slot out.

    Great combustion does do more damage through shields, but that doesn't stop the fact that black flame breaks through them(and stuns them, allowing a follow up black flame)

    Black Flame is also a poise beast.

    Black Flame often does more damage on lightly armored foes. Anyone wearing tanking gear, however, takes far more damage from Great Combustion, as their superior physical AR cuts into Black Flame's damage.

    Black Flame if you have an alternate weapon/spell that you'll depend on for most damage.
    Great Combustion if that's what you are mainly relying on.

    Black Flame breaks 60 Poise, so it will stagger all those 53 Poise builds that think they're safe. Yes, they can tank GC and GS hit, but not BF, so it's a great way to stagger them and stop bs attempts.
    It also blasts away shields, so it's good to use against turtles. Don't look at the damage it does to them through their shield, it drains a LOT of their STamina when they block BF, so just use it two, max three times and their shield is gone.
    The damage is lower on BF, but you can make that up with a quick R1 after the stagger. Anyway, BF is for Poise and Guard breaking, not for damage.

    The damage doesn't seem to differ too much for me, but I like the poise break Black Flame has, so I'll go with that.

    Alright, I've decided to use Black Flame o/. We can consider this closed now. Off to that new topic!
