I agree with this conclusion, because I think the classes are balanced as regards damage avoidance. It's not like one is better than the other. I play them both.Stick with nightblade I think.
That's what many people say. I think it's debatable. Yes, sorc healing is problematic. You IMO have to go beyond Vigor, Crit Surge and Dark Deal for a comfortable / survivable build, e.g. you IMO have to use Rally, resto staff, Draining Shot, Mara's Balm or something else as well.For one thing nightblades are just in a better spot than sorcerer's period at the moment and that goes beyond what you're asking but it still should be relevant that they have better healing and damage than sorc.
That's IMO a red herring so long as you mix Streak with dodge rolls, Major Expedition and Dark Deal. In other words, use a bow back bar or main a bow. It goes exceedingly well with stamsorc. Dodge rolling and Streak both have increasing costs. Alternate between the two and the problem is solved.More to your point... Streak has an increasing cost penalty for casting back to back and cloak does not.
How did you get to be 15m away, huh? Was it Shadow Image? I'll give you that, but that requires foresight. You have to like that playstyle. Streak is easier to use.Any ranged attacks or gap closers can still hit a streaking sorc (the defensive morph ball of lightning got nerfed to only absorb 1 projectile I believe.) It is better to not be seen than to be seen but 15m away.
So ... you actually play both classes?and use shadow image or whatever it's called for sneaky teleportation tactics... It's as good as it gets for avoiding damage I do believe.
Stamsorc is very fun to play, but simply different to nightblade. I'd summarize these classes as follows:I love damage mitigation as opposed to surviving after taking damage so I main a stamblade, loads of fun and annoying to play against in pvp. Is the stamsorc even more annoying and harder to hit given its mobility and streak? Or should I just stick with the stamblade.
