I've tried all the classes during the beta but didn't really spend some time studying their underwater skills. Out of curiosity, which profession do you think is the best when it comes to underwater fighting? (Utility skills not included)
I like the warriors set, and I don't use utilities as I get a bonus in stats for not using them, so that works for me, hunter isn't so good and elementalist is really bad but still at low level so maybe that'l change.
I use the harpoon gun and run or swim around in circles as the warriors healing is terrible. I don't like underwater fighting but some times you have no choice and for me the warrior is way ahead of any other profession.
A lot of skills don't work underwater so for some classes like an engineer you'r really screwed if you use your turrets a lot:) but to be honest, I'm more annoyed that my huhters elite skills don't work underwater, no quick kills in the depths for me:(
Engineer can use Rifle Turret and Rocket Turret underwater, but honestly Grenade Kit more than makes up for anything they may lack in other areas.
Elixir gun too works well underwater, the poison spray and the noxious cloud thing (3 and 4 I think) I usually have that and the grenades. Elixirs are unfortunate underwater, good for you, but the F key elixir abilities you can't aim, just have to throw it forward and it explodes a few seconds later, hard to effect other players with them, unless there is something I don't know about using elixirs underwater.
IMO? This is a post on a message board, is that not obvious? Trolls are my entertainment. [PSN/XBL: AAAFate]
