Chaos Bolt hit You 135163

Rogue
I have 5600 Resil and they still hit me this hard? WTF! I can't hit anything that hard even if they were naked.
Take a chaos wave to the face. now THOSE kill you fast. Oh and don't forget DF frost bombs. Lol at this game.
I wonder why I even bother playing this toon anymore.
not when you're in a BG in a crowd fighting.

Adding gasoline to this kind of discussion always makes things better, right?
135k is a joke compared to some of the chaos bolts i have been hit with.
i'm also at 6,800 resill.
It's just frustrating that I love to PvP on my rogue, it's the reason I even play WoW and they are basically worthless right now.
5600 resil isnt alot
In BGs we now have to decide between shutting down the healer or shutting down the warlock.

I wasn't meant for these times.
Must be Rogues, because I got hit by two 100k incinerates back to back.. but hey i managed to interrupt the Chaos bolt.
Lol got hit today for a 130k frost bomb following 3 icelances which killed me. Later on I went to go kill a mop rare for novelty !@#$ and a holy pally hit me for a 40k holy shock.

smoke bomb


3 minute CD vs an ability that costs all his 'combo points'. k

Undying resolve you mad bro?

Point is, you can't stop every chaos bolt man. He's bound to get at least 1 off (even though you can deny quite a few).

My thought exactly. I'm over 6.8k resil and I get hit for over 200k by some chaos bolts.
Doesn't Chaos Bolt ignore defenses? Pretty sure that's it's gimmick. It's on a CD has a long cast time but ignores defenses.

Technically no cd, but it takes a bit of effort to get 3 embers. Pretty sure it doesn't ignore defenses though...you can cloak it.
I've hit people for 130k evis before...

NO TL;DR sorry!

My opinion my help you sir. I will tell you what I do duing that situation. I assume you are referring to a big brawl in mid field, maybe fighting over a flag or a brawl going down at a node.

As a hunter I am naturally going to be in the outter edges of the fight , firing into the melee, of course I usually see a caster or two doing the same thing. A big fight as you describe is chaos at best so you will have to change your play style up a bit and heres why.

As we are firing / casting in to the melee pile of players. There of course will be healers. All ranged instinctively will target them first or break our ranged dps up and target healers or squishy players OR players that are low armored.The ultimate goal is to have more dudes standing then they do.

Unless you are carrying the flag or have friends from a premade with you a rogue is NOT a high priority target to keep alive according to most healers IMHO. So if you are brawling in the mix and dont have a pocket healer, expect to get destroyed quickly.

This is where you change it up! When the fight breaks out observe the area. Look for outter circle victims. Let the heavier armored players get in the middle of the main brawl. Go for the perimeter players that are free casting. Even if you dont kill them for whatever reason, you will cause a clink in the gears and break their flow.
Didnt you make this thread on the warlock forums too?
