Beastlord + Round Kick

    Playing a BL on the TLPs and hit 65 to be graced with Round Kick. Never played a monk before so wasn't sure what to expect. I presumed, however, that it would be better than Kick.

    I think I presumed wrong. Even maxed on skill, Kick does WAY more damage than Round Kick. I'm struggling to find a reason to use it.

    I asked some monks - their response was basically "*shrug* been using flying kick forever"

    So now I ask here. Is there something special about Round Kick to warrant its existence? Doesn't even have a unique animation (at least on Vah Shir).

    Ok.. that's level 115? I'm asking at 65 when it is just a shared timer alternative to Kick.

    You should get the first AA rank of Feral Swipe at 65

    If you auto skill roundhouse it will automatically trigger feral swipe. If you don't have any AA in feral swipe then you should stick with kick until you do.

    Kick > Roundhouse
    Roundhouse+Feral Swipe > Kick

    Round kick + feral swipe doesn't beat regular kick for a while on TLP. I assume it's an oversight on the damage scaling for feral swipe when they gave us round kick. I bug reported it at the time on the old system but it never got noticed.

    I forget exactly when, but I think it started parsing better around TBS or SoF. It picks up significantly later. At 100 now feral swipe does more DPS than my DoTs with burns running.

    If you want to get it changed, run some controlled parses and post it on the bug forum. This might result in a nerf to Kick for TLP however.

    Looks like that is with Gates. Mangler isn't there yet. July I believe.
