    I understand people want elite content to be challenging, but if the only way to make an elite alert "challenging" is stun the crap out of it, I'd rather not even have an elite alert.

    Even with a tank throwing immunities last boss is a pain. All it does is make people prefer certain dps powers over others because some have very vulnerable or fragile AMs. Use other mechanics to amp up the difficulty. Some stuns are OK but at the magnitude like in PZE, or even DPE, is over doing it.

    What he's trying to say here is, give Celestial the 3 second buffer ;)


    Jk bud I'd have you dps PZe anytime, regardless of the OP stuns nerfing your combo dmg.

    Agreed. They could make the boss block more, or call in some inconvenient minions to disrupt us and stuff. Or at lest make THEM vulnerable to stuns as well, so we could all engage in a huge CC war. Nah, jk on the last one.

    (Btw, people, if you ever need to fight IRL, as a martial artist who highly relies on stunning and dazing his oponents, this strategy makes a huge load of sense. Do not try that at home).

    While we're at it, please put CR restrictions on CC abilities.

    I shouldn't be knocked out of the sky by a level 5 Wag... well, ever really, but certainly not at CR 160. It's just not very "super".

    I think it's fine, really emphasizes teamwork. Although I do agree Celestial needs to be looked at like I've been saying since the dawn of man.
  6. Backseid Devoted Player

    How do stuns promote teamwork?

    You're good. It would have been bought up anyway by someone else lol.
  11. Scar-Red Nova Dedicated Player

    Because someone has to lunge the guy to get you out of it.
  12. Backseid Devoted Player

    Oh nice. I woulda never thought of that.

    Although, the chances of that ever actually happening is almost never. Lol. I mean, when do you ever notice someone else is stunned?

    Unless you're just talking about very specific boss fights?

  13. Scar-Red Nova Dedicated Player're a competent player? I don't understand what you're asking. Everyone should be aware of what happens around them.

    No surprise. Players want easy boss fights.
    No stuns, no one shots.
    Just pew pew, pick up object to disable shield and then back to pew pew :oops:

    Skill points and CR will never teach players how to be aware of whats happening around them. :rolleyes:
    Usually the tank or I, the troll is tasked with lunging the Elite Kryptonian Soldier as he is stunning a random party member.
    Smart players should save orbitals for the adds, one orbital can pretty much do some decent damage on most of them.
    Zod is a little hard to read but if he hits a non-tank role they should pop a soda, breakout and block cuz his attack encases and does a few ticks of damage.
  15. Fatal Star 10000 Post Club

    Or just block when he gets out of his lazor, cause 75℅ of the time after that he'll go into his encasement lunge. It's also a good idea for the healer to time their group shield with his one shot to soften the blow in case they forget to block.

    Too bad none of this really has anything to do with the actual point of the post though. Just someone showing how "leet" they are.
  16. Menelaos Dedicated Player

    Sounds like a "YOU" problem.

  17. IIThe QuestionII Loyal Player a perfect multiverse :(

    My god the stuns in the elite alert is are soooo annoying . Its like every 5 seconds you are being stunned then Zod lunges you and you die. I think they can come up with better mechanics than that ,,,,,

    Every player that tells you to open your eyes and give a **** about your teammates isn't arrogant. This should really go without saying if you ask me. Let me know if I'm misunderstanding you.
