    VC PVE stuff - Powerful or Empowered Flame Sword?

    Hi~ I've been thinking:

    Powerful vs Empowered for Flame Sword?

    I picked Empowered but then I thought Powerful being better at tanking some patterns in pve....

    Any thoughts?

    What ImmortalSage said. Increased CD isn't exactly desired and you shouldn't ever be looking to tank as VC anyway (that may form a bad habit and screw you over when it comes to Heroics).

    Sorry for being late. Imo Powerful was never worth it, when unlocking "Victory Survival Strategy" as VC you could Flame Sword on the air, like >90% the cases of how ppl using it. Using it on the air would increase dmg, quicker and safer, so you don't need to tank. Moreover VC path having many skills with lengthy i-frames duration and quite low cd time like Deadly Raid, Revolver Cannon, Hellfire... which would make better "tanking" option, imo, tho beware of Overheat recoil dmg.

    Also Trans VC having Flame Sword: Flurry, which is basically Flame Sword but with lengthier animation and full super armor.

    Yeah~being running VC very smoothly~Overheat feels fine with how fast I can kill things.

    The only weird issue is that VC lacks bypassing stuff other than Shadow Step, kind-of feels weird when I want to dodge some stuff.

    You mean to go to other side of the monster? Just ZZZ > X(X) to go from left side to right side, or ZZZ < X(X) to go from right side to left side.
