    No. Just buff everything else and increase the drop rate of weapons that have the unavoidable damage buff.

    I'd just like to know how long reflect can be held up. I can block all their reflects, but I'd like to know when to pour on the dps. Btw, impale isn't reflected. While they are reflecting I can impale them to about half then stealth and repeat.

    It depends on their magic regen, on my DK I can have reflect up for literally hours. Magic regen is so high it only costs about 10 next time I cast it.

    On the other hand, I'm not a LA magicka build so I usually have to drink a tripot to cast more than 3 in a row.

    Again this returns to light armor being the real issue, scales on MA/HA DKs is not unfair.

    My NB is not a LA magicka build either, and i have 1800 magicka (along with 2500+ stamina, and ~3200 HP)

    If i had reflect, i could cast it 5 times in a row without a potion.

    To deny that DK is that easy to play is just absurd. I stopped playing my DK because I got sick of people saying I am just doing FoTW. Which in fact I was doing an entirely different build than what people are using and it was literally stand there easy. Still is. Do I think DK need some more adjustments? Oh yea. When one DK can jump up on a keep where there are EASILY 30 people healing, sieging, and attacking the people knocking on the keeps wall, and lands there and does not die with everyone attacking him....yea something is wrong lol

    So out of 30 people there were no DKs that could "easy mode face roll" this other DK? Interesting. You should roll a DK and try to dragon leap into a group of Alacrity or No Mercy. I think it would change your opinion of those 30 players.

    30 people could not kill a DK? Yeah, there really is something wrong and it is not the DK. It only takes 1 person to kill a DK, not 30. There is no excuse for 30 people not being able to kill a DK. None.

    Sure, if it was the only Magicka skill you were casting, but green dragon blood and talons cost magicka, too.

    Its not like this spell is the only thing using this resource when a DK is in combat, be realistic.

    Hi all, just popping in to let you know that we do have plans to adjust Reflective Scales in Update 6. Currently, you can reflect an infinite number of projectiles per cast; we will be setting a maximum number of projectiles that the ability can reflect per cast, the maximum being four. We look forward to hearing your feedback on this once it's available to test on the PTS.

    Thanks for the update Gina. I might not personally agree with the change, but thanks for the heads up anyway.

    Two immediate reactions:

    1.) PVE - Meh

    2.) AvA - ONLY FOUR? At least six so you encourage zerg balls at the same rate as your other skills.
    Power level to CP160 in a week:
    Where is the end game? You just played it.
    Why don't I have 300+ skill points? Because you skipped content along the way.
    Where is new content? Sigh.

    Guys, please remember that many of our abilities are getting reworked for Update 6, so please give this a try on the PTS once it's available to see how it feels with all the other changes. Thanks!

    When are you fixing lethal arrow? There's nothing more i'd like to see than DK's about to experience the pain the rest of us feel, But PLEASE this need fixed immediately before you go nerfing stuff.

    I made my DK in headstart and leveled up, like an idiot, in heavy armor, eschewing the use of most magicka abilities. Since that time, I've learned about the power of our class based abilities, and as I grew to use them, I've seen nerf after nerf to the DK. If only I could go back in time and jump on the cloth wearing, claw spamming, standard dropping, bat clouding bandwagon and reap the glory of pre nerf DK!

    If only! Oh well - the class is still decent.

    4 projectiles is way too little for such an expensive spell.

    P.S. I dont play dk. I play sorc.

    then as a sorc you would know all about expensive spells with no pay out.......because I sure do and I play sorc
