Is it fine for me as an ele to get struck by a backstab that's almost 2.5-3 times my hp while having nothing to do in terms of even reacting to it? Where is even the skill included into that? Stealth and POP, wow. Fantastic!
I got 1 shot by a thief for a number that even the tankiest ele can't withstand and it was the highest this time.
Can't we have a trait or a passive utility skill that ignores 1 lethal blow. What's the point of having a combat system when there is literally no interaction. How am I supposed to react to a thief that's invisible all the time and the only time I see them is in downed state, that is if there was even a downstate after the follow up.
This happened a few times to me, but this shouldn't be fine. Even MS can't hit like that and it got demolished while there is a frame for the opponent to counter it.
The point of the post is to either split that skill's damage and nerf it in WvW or give us any passive defense to allow the player to even know what's going on. If none of these could be introduced then give us some damage buffs to match this meta were the first to land one hit is the one to kill.
Pull the strings. Watch them dance.
