    That's what the miracle is supposed to do.
    (WoG too)

    If you never tried, you should, it's pretty funny and nobody expect that.

    its just something that unless you more or less specifically go for it, you won't do it very often

    Its very useful too, a few of my spells were deflectted by somebody before. But nobody wants a knockoff WoG though... lol

    Ever tried using it while you have homing soul mass up (on your own character)? It causes the masses to expand outward and then contract. It's pretty funny, but it has no obvious gameplay use.

    its a lot easier to dodge spells than risk reflecting them with force, specially with lag.

    lol
    Sometimes I see people running or dodging to avoid a spoul spear and getting hit due to lag, if they had the reflex to use force or WoG then they'll stop complain about the spell.

    Though, it needs good reflexes and some skills, I guess that's why it's underrated. Shrug

    The risks are the same, you can roll and still get hit if there's lag.
    Now, what is the most effective ?

    Rolling and taking no damage or using WoG close enough to the mage to send him back his spell (add the WoG damages) ?

    Like everything, you just need to practice.

    if youre too close you wont have time to use wog to refelct the spells unless you guess hes gonna use css, ive only been hit with laggy css twice, thats why i never get close to casters unless im attacking, it works for me every time so i do it.

    You have the time to cast WoG before the CSS hits you, it takes time to cast it + the speel is not very fast.
    Actually I never tried on CSS while being very close so I suppose, I'll try on the next mage I see.

    But, being too far away from a CSS caster is one of the less clever things to do, that's where you're the most vulnerable, I usually roll towards them so I go underneath the spell (You need to be pretty very close though) and hit the guy.

    i use a dgm and dgh so i cant be close to them because theyre slow i run the risk of getting backstabbed, i hit and run, thats what i do and rarely do i lose to mages, the times ive lost against them is when the lag was so bad that i couldnt even see the spells, theyre usually dead with one hit, maybe two.

    Emit force actually can do it better if you fire it back down the line of spell attack. I actually had someone do this to me as I was casting a fireball; the fireball bounced off and then I also got hit by the incoming force sphere. Well played sir

    I tried this but with lag, it can be quite difficult

    It's too risky, but I can confirm that at least WoG (don't know about Force) can deflect CRYSTAL SOUL SPEARS!

    What I don't know, if that you just deflect them, or after you deflect them, if they hit someone, it will hurt¿?

    Oh and one tip for miracle users, if you are close to a mage, and he casts Homing Soul Mass (or crystal version), a quick cast of Force or WoG will push their balls away, even if they didn't fire against you yet. It's a good way to counter them from close range before they try to reach you.
