Thread: combat Maneuver advice

    Ah, scale. Okay, well that's a 5% evade per rank. Again I am totally biased towards evading over CMOV/CMAN, and while I think it would hold up in a court of math, I have never pressed those charges. I would think you would get higher effective defense per CMAN point in evade vs CMOV. At least I would drop CMOV 5 to get the second rank of evade (2ds vs 5% evade).

    UAC mstirkes are pretty sweet. free jab, upping from jab to punch/kick/grapple at your control, performs the weakness attacks automatically mid-mstirke, and quick RT. I don't understand the math of UAC (probably as I have not looked) but on paper the punch/kick/grapple mastery's look pretty sexy for adding merderosity.

    Why ranged? Or why open UAC, and not ambush UAC?

    Honestly, without stealth, I see no reason to learn anything but punch or kick mastery first, if you are using UAC. ESPECIALLY open UAC, since the masteries will increase your tier up chance.

    It's a great cman. That being said, it's not on my list for a number of reasons, top of the list being I like to have control of my stamina expenditure.

    Not sure about stuns, but I know you can toggle it in RT.

    In that case, with shadow mastery up I would vanish, how's that cost comparison?

    I never used Shadow Mastery, and was responding to Ososis' comment but it also wouldn't activate if bound, webbed or other immobilizations.

    From the wiki though, it would compare in stamina cost as mobility being cheaper usually, unless hitting the 25 stamina cap with alot of rt remaining when it fires.

    MOBILITY cost:

    Cost Base 5, plus 1 per remaining RT, 25 Max

    SMASTERY cost:

    Cost 20 (60 if used during cooldown period)
