    Whip questions.

    Post by Henkyona on Wed Feb 29, 2012 3:33 am

    So how effective are the notched whip, and normal whip in pvp.

    I watched a video on youtube and the guy was rocking the notched whip, and was kicking some serious a**, I noticed that you can't parry the whips, so I was wanting to know if anyone has exp with it.

    The videos got me interested in them.

    When I do my King J screwing around, I've found a Whip is best in the offhand. You can parry with it, and it can make for some harassment. It just doesn't do much damage, as well you can't backstab with a whip, which I think would be awesome if you could just have an animation of throttling a person with it. It's pretty weak, but possible to PvP with one.

    Well I meant that people can't parry the whips, not you can't parry with them.

    I know, I was just saying that you can parry with it in your off hand, that is all I meant by saying you should use it in your offhand. The R2 takes so long it really isn't worth it.

    So elemental off hand would be great to surprise people who like to parry, it can help build up bleed if you use a bleed weapon in right hand and have a good range, so you can finish off wounded targets and it can parry. I think I will try using it

    I'd say that's a good advantage being the only weapon you can't parry, buffed out, that weapon could be very effective...I will give it a try soon.

    Ok....it looks like I'm gonna have to be the guy. Someone needs to make a Devo build with one of these. I'm thinking Shadow chest and legs with maybe one of the sorcerer hats.

    Ive been rocking the whip on and off for a while now, and its extremely fun and rewarding in pvp. Right now ive got a crystal whip +4, crystal notched whip +4 and whip+15. Ive noticed when u buff it, the buff doesnt show up until u swing the whip, which can be very dececptive. Me and my friend had a few whips only duels last night and ive never had more fun with pvp in my life. Seriously, i think it might be one of the only times i got beat and died laughing!

    Btw at 40 dex crystal whip +4 does 388. Whip +15 is prob 375.

    U cant Riposte or Backstab with the Whip. Which makes sense since in the descriptions it states "not intended for battle".

    Notched whip FTW.
    I got a toon with dual claws + notched whip.

    The whip saved me a lot of times.

    the only problem i see with the whips is that for a whip is has the worst reach in the game, that alone makes not wanna use it, ive used it for parrying only.
