Someone powerful says, "We're going to have to delete you."
I do not mean to resurrect this thread but I am truly struggling with my class. Currently it feels like Carnifex are at an impasse, we are just not fast enough to outpace peoples curing and not versatile enough to get any joy from combat. As someone with no cash to invest in a new class, I am unfortunately stuck fighting with a limited arsenal of abilities. In general, Carnifex are crap and 2/3 of my guild do not even use the class.
At this point in time I have great curing thanks to tripwire (Kaeus is great with his updates etc) yet the offensive area is redundant for me. I do my best to afflict, I use my mire hound to add afflictions and use a (damage: 123 Penetration: 120 Speed: 177 as a dextrous player), but at 2.44secs for two venoms, it is not viable as people merely keep rebound/shield up so it is impossible to gain speed or stick afflictions. At points, I might get lucky and will hit 2.0secs for a round then its start again at 2.4 due to rebounding.
Therefore, I want to know what can be done to improve the class, what can I do in terms of tactics taking in to account the lack of skills we have. I have tested all my stuff and have just hit a wall now and its depressing.
Some of the tactics I have use include using venom stacks such as: paralysis, clumsiness, stupidity, weariness, limpveins, asthma, slickness, belonephobia, etc etc etc on undead and the equivalent for living venoms. Or starting with paralyisis, stupidity followed by limb venoms etc! For a little while I added in soul poison but it slows up the offence for a full round and you need to restart again to add in afflictions
I use soul rust and charging on weapon users to lessen the damage and keep them from fleeing, so I can keep up the afflictions, however soul rust in general does nothing except drop 30-50 damage!
I have screwed around with hammers but they are slow, and do not gather soul (I think at best I have gained 4 soul in a fight), and in general they are extremely limited outside a leyline situation.
So this is me asking you toptiers to tell me what you would do with the class as it is please, thanks.
