How do I deal with the persuers spell?

#11laserbearsPosted 2/8/2013 12:25:08 AM
I used the Strong Magic Shield spell with a spear for awhile. I'm about a 3/10 at PvP but just about the only players I regularly could put up a fight against were Dark Bead/Pursuers spammers. Many opponents seemed to be unfamiliar with the spell and simply kept blasting away, not realizing that it had 0 effect on my stamina.

If there is enough room, you can unlock from your opponent and just run/walk away and they will not catch up to you. This is only if the caster doesn't move towards you after he casts, or you'll just be giving him a free backstab.

1. Trigger the Pursuers
2. Strafe backwards a little bit.
3. Move towards them.
4. Roll through it.
5. Tada!

don't midroll.
pursuers is the biggest thing in the game that makes midroll unviable.
even with strong magic shield the amount of time the stagger on their shield pins you in place is long enough for your opponent to get the backstab if they're going for it.
spamming roll backwards at fastroll is a pretty basic 100% counter to pursuers.

Pursuers is super easy to dodge unless you're caught in a Tranquil Walk of Peace. I love to meet mages since they're so easy to kill.

You can easily roll through Pursuers even with mid-roll. See here:

lag plays a factor in timing (ive been nailed while it was several feet in front of me) but usually rolling through it towards the caster makes it disappear right away.. however you need to be paying attention to if the caster is charging up his dark bead or something because rolling right into that face 2 face is.. bad. but yeah, its easy to dodge unless lag, and it seems rolling towards it makes it go away. (i guess it hits the ground as it tries to loop around to follow you?)

lucky_sharm19, and if the caster was running in for the backstab the midroller wouldn't have got up without taking it
