    Using Shockwave

    Hi, I’m a play for fun person. I have accounts in Eternim: one each for mages, warriors and bounty hunters.
    warriors is the one I’m newest to, and although I enjoy Fury style, I’ve just started looking at Defender style warrior. However, I have one big problem; I just don’t get or understand Shockwave .... I’m obviously not doing I right as my percentage of damage is normally at around 2 or 3%, (trial level 90, 2 to 3 minutes) whereas when I look at other player stats when they are available, they all seem to be 30 to 40 percent ...
    if I go with shockwave, what is the best way to use it?

    Don't use shockwave with Defender set. Shockwave matches up with warlord set. Are you mixing up SW - Shield Warrior with SW - shockwave ?

      Thanks for replying .. the leaderboards aren’t up at the moment so I can’t check, but yes, maybe I misunderstood .. probably explains why I’m not doing much with it ...
      mind you, I’ve played Warlord before and never thought of using Shockwave with that style of character ..
      however fact remains, I still cant use shockwave effectively ...
      maybe I’ll use leap instead
      thanks

      Leap and shockwave is a good mix. Check out the pinned guide in warrior barracks.

        Thanks, by the sound of it Turgeon, I need to herd my opponents into a larger ‘mob’ sheepdog style to get more people with the shockwave ...
        im guessing a little additional fire damage is helpful too ..
        I’ll keep grinding and practising and experimenting

          Parrying with warlord set triggers a mini whirlwind which holds the mob together. Leap lvl 10 is also needed so that moving around doesn't split the mob.

        First thing first, you need shockwave level 10. The effect at level 10 allows damage over time effects to greatly increase the damage your shockwaves do. You will also need vamparic blades for the grievous wounds effect. Grievous wounds applies a 6 second dot for 15% of the damage from your critical hits.

        Shockwave is fueled by 3 things:
        -Rending slash dot
        -Leap dot
        -grievous wounds dot

              Yea its about 80% of mine. Make sure you get fire damage on your trinkets, belt, bracers. And shockwave bracers. Damage will sky rocket
