Been playing The Unspoken a lot, and it's great fun... Most of the time.
Lately I've noticed that Im consistently losing against people with Blackjack class, and being Kinetist, I feel like I just don't have the tools to deal with Blackjack. The problems I have, are as follows:
1. I feel that Blackjack's knives are far superior to all other basic attacks (albeit bit harder to aim). It's freely aimable and goes in straight line, making it easy to fire from behind cover or between gaps in clocktower, for example. It flies at high speed, making it almost impossible to block in close range fights, and it's impossible to reflect back on opponent.
2. The cloak. Hands down the best shield. As it's the only one that can't be straight out broken with spear or one boosted spell (except for fireworks). The further I've played, the more I've felt that this is the only worthwhile shield to use, as it at least forces dispelling censor, whereas two others can just be Forge speared.
3. Disc of Blades is just too fast, both in travel time and casting time. It can basically be fired instantly (after teleport for example) for half damage, with no chance of dodge or shooting it down happening. Also, it's notoriously easy to aim when compared to the Kinetist's Debris shot.
So that's the end of my rant about blackjack. Furthermore I feel that Artifact stacking shouldn't be allowed. It just feels frustrating playing against someone with 3 x Ctulhu's Grasp or the like.
