    DL Fight using RDM/BLU

    Im just wondering if anyone has fought DL using RDM/BLUs who use chainspell "Head Butt"?
    Would this work? I'm wondering if a more appropriate strategy would be using RDM pairs of chainspellers one using /drk and one using /blu to stun DL while you zerg him?

    I've no experience with Blu but part of the reason RDM/DRK only gets partial Stun resists on DL is the fact that we have a native Dark Magic skill.

    I suspect that if you went /BLU you'd get more resists seeing how it would be capped at lv37 Skill.

    Well, The RDM/BLU would have to have some good acc gear. No use if it doesnt land. Then you have the entire problem of having it actually stun. Only around 60-70% chance when /blu I think.
    It would probably be better to just go /drk

    i dont really know much about BLU but wouldnt CS + Headbutt knock him all over hell and cause melees to miss WSs due to DL being out of range alot?

    RDM/DRK Dark magic skill > RDM/BLU Blue magic skill

    DUH, ITS OBVIOUS. Headbutt has a much lower cooldown then stun, so when rdms chainspell it becomes vastly superior to normal stuns. AND, it adds damage AND costs less mp!

    The reason I ask is I'm unsure about Blu and thought maybe "Headbutt" stunned 100% of the time. With /drk I know that DL resists stuns and thats why typically you work in RDM/DRK teams so that you have a lower probability of DL wiping the party.

    Nope, you need acc and BLU skill. If you just ask in /ls I couldve told you that XD

    I can't even stun EP over 50% of the time as /blu with a buttload of ACC gear. I think they nerfed it a while ago.

    It used to work.

    did test. one of our late LS members who is no longer with us tested the excat thoery with blu as a SJ. The results were as predicted. The skill level is just too poor to make it as reliable and you are better off /drk to stun

    and yes it used to work, they nerfed it very quickly

    still works pretty reliably for blu main though :D

    Accuracy will determine if the spell Head Butt hits him for damage. Blue magic skill is what determines the added effect on all the spells, which stun is on Head Butt. I don't see how it could be more reliable based on a capped 37 skill.
