REFLECTIVE SCALES NEEDS NERF

Spells & Ranged Attacks... May as well reflect ballista fire while we are at it! Remove melee reflect, or spells. FFS the entire EP population is a DK Vamp with bows in one hand and a Impulse spamming Destro staff in the other.

Reflecting spells and ranged, some melee, and for 6-8 seconds, is a little much.

I am surprised the entire population isn't running a DK+Vamp+Bow+Destro...

Impulse +devouring swarm +reflective scales = rinse and repeat

Snipe +Reflective Scales +Poison Arrow, poison arrow, poison arrow...

Oh, and reflecting Ultimates? Do tell...

    I don't think it needs to be nerfed into the group but I do feel the skill needs some looking at and tweaks.
    There should defiantly be some skills in the game which are not reflectable as well. Personally I find it silly that ultimates can be reflected, they're meant to be ultimate.

    Yep reflecting meteor as hilarious as it is, is kinda stupid

    It doesn't reflect melee so no idea what you're on about there.

    It only reflects for 4 seconds not 6-8. You have two weapon bars, if your build is all range then you have given your self a weakness. Why is it so hard for people to change bar and stop spamming your lethal arrows and crystal fragments at a guy that is quite obviously flapping his big wings?

    You cannot or will not adapt therefor something needs nerfing.

    By Melee I mean bows and destro attacks, sorry about that

    As a spell using sorc pretty common build I'm freaking useless against a reflect spamming DK. I shouldn't have to swap my build out or completely ignore DKs every time I come across one. Fights are awfully long stalemates where all I can do is vel curse or mages fury to not reflect back at myself pretty boring and pretty impossible scales walks over sorcs with staves.

    I'd wait until lethal arrow debuff is fixed. Also, even though it lasts 4 seconds, can it be spammed faster? If so, I'd like a cool down on it.

    Reflect does not need to be nerfed. I believe every class has abilities that don't reflect.

    Okay here is a notice or some information I recently remembered is effective. If you have a Templar in your group have them cast Unstable Core (Eclipse morph) on the DK. When they reflect an attack, it will be sent right back and usually by the time it's sent back to the DK their Reflect has ended.

    With that said though I hope that the Reflective Scale spammers realize that DKs are a great class and if you use the other class abilities then you'll experience a whole new way of fighting for DKs and won't be seen as a caveman who can just hit one button.

    If noone shoots on your reflect you just waste magicka (332 Magicka per Scale cast) and run out of resources.

    I don't think there is any DK who spams reflect. It lasts for 4 seconds and deals no damage. Why should someone spam it?
    And a projectile can be reflected not more than 2 times, so it doesn't matter if their reflect is still up, use Unstable Core and everything will hit them.

    With lag it's impossible to tell when those wings start flapping. Last night I shot someone three times immediately after he flapped (bloodlust), and all three landed. Later, after watching my mark carefully and seeing no wings at all, I shot three times and all three came back to me, and then the wings showed up.

    On another note, it's pretty *** that it reflects meteor. That's not a projectile. A projectile is something that is propelled forward. A meteor is not propelled; it is pulled.

Fights are awfully long stalemates where all I can do is vel curse or mages fury to not reflect back at myself pretty boring and pretty impossible scales walks over sorcs with staves.

    There are some certain spec sorcs out there that wreck my reflect spamming DK. If you shouldn't have to swap certain skills out to counter me, why must i as a melee character swap certain skills out to counter you? I never wanted to play range, that's why i picked a DK at release as they seemed the best class for my melee character. Yet 90% Cyrodiil is range.

    Why is it okay for anyone to spam lethal arrow or crystal fragments but it's not okay for me to spam reflect? You have two bars, make use of them both.

    Please enlighten me on said builds that aren't melee? It's fair enough to roll a sorc and not want to pick up a melee weapon full stop.

    When you see 1/2 DKs charging a 20 man zerg and sustaining well off mainly reflect its a sad sight.

    I just don't enjoy being completely locked out of a fight with no possible in, I'm more than fine with counter-classes but at least make it a fight?

    cast crushing shock relfect, cast shards reflect, cast vel curse wait 4 seconds for 500 damage, cast mage fury do 200dmg prior to execute, light/heavy destro staff attack reflect. The only things that don't get sent back at you from class skills; Tier 1 pet summon, Vel curse, Mages fury, Daedric mines. What do you suggest death of 1000 cuts in a consta caltropped area? its unrealistic and unfair.

    my second bar consists of streak (lol block) immovable and heals/purge.

    Pretty common build that you can be in a fight with a scale spamming DK (let's face it thats 90% of you) a not get one hit off due to reflect.

    let's see 2600 Magicka pool, 2600 + 100 magicka every 2 seconds which gives another 1600 magicka over 32 seconds.

    With no warlock or sybian you are looking at 50 seconds of constant reflect of all projectiles.

    Did you guys not see the recent patch notes?
    Elder Scrolls Online Patch 1.5.7

    Dragonknight (Draconic Power)

    Reflective Scales: This ability no longer reflects melee abilities and only reflects projectiles. We also reduced the duration from 6-8 seconds down to 4 seconds.


    Good Job OP... You got it nerfed.. Happy?!

    Wait, they put that in 1.0's patch notes too! This wouldn't be the first time this has happened. . . :neutral_face:
