    Great magic barrier

    Post by javarush214 on Sun Jan 29, 2012 7:45 am

    I dont know if this topic has been created many times but forgive me if it was.

    Anyways I notice that more people seems to use great magic barrier now a days, apparently the description in the spell said it was used to increase defense against magic, but whenever i attack with my moonlight GS, or my lucerne, my damage is greatly reduced, backstabs go down from 800+ to 70, normal attacks that connect does only like 20-60?(not really sure)

    i usually just wait till my enemy's GMB wears off until i attack again...
    not that im b******* out but for me it seems a little imbalanced since iron flesh makes your physical defense go up, but your mag defense is still the same and your movement speed is reduced heavily.

    any thoughts on this?

    it only lasts a min, dont quote me on that though but most buffs last a min, just wait it out, as for iron flesh its so easy to bs them to death cause theyre so slow, before the patch you barely took any damge if you had iron flesh.

    Moonlight greatsword is all magic damage. If your lucerne is anything but regular, raw, lightning or fire it is also mainly magic damage, which is why your hits aren't hitting as hard. I switch to my +5 Lightning weapon of choice when someone casts it.

    The Moonlight Greatsword is 100% magical damage, which is probably why it isn't doing much.

    most spell caster/magic builds either wont let you cast it, or run away until it wears off.

    moonlight gs is pure magic damage. gmb blocks like 90% of all magic damage.

    no point really attacking them if they use this spell and you do pure magic damage, as it will most definatly trade and he will do far more damage than your attack.

    so once more and more people use it, people will learn to simply wait it out.

    although it must have more than 1 charge? not sure. when it wears off just stick close and punish.

    This is reason number one why I use Sunlight Blade instead of the other buffs. Adding Lightning to a +15 > all other buffs.

    GMB has two charges, I like when someone casts it because they think they are invincible to my onslaught of magic damage. What I do is dodge-dodge-dodge and throw dung when I can. As soon as it wears off he gets a soul spear to the face and more often than not is expecting GMB to help them eat it.
