Thread: Official: MSTRIKE and BERSERK Updated!

    Default Official: MSTRIKE and BERSERK Updated!

    MSTRIKE has been updated so you can set a default attack type. Use MSTRIKE SET DEFAULT {type} where type is one of ATTACK, JAB, PUNCH, GRAPPLE, or KICK. You can override the default type by specifying it during MSTRIKE, i.e., MSTRIKE JAB will still use JAB even if you set your default to PUNCH. See MSTRIKE HELP for more information.

    Additionally, BERSERK has been updated to use the Unarmed Combat System (UCS) if MSTRIKE DEFAULT is set to a UCS attack. The berserker's rage prevents the clarity required to fully utilize UCS so the user will only PUNCH and KICK and will tier up randomly. UCS BERSERK went through several test iterations and settled on this implementation to keep balance in line.

    Jabs and grapple were too OP in combination with BERSERK???

    I would guess they went with punch/kick to increase the base damage. If you had jab/grapple mixed in but didn't auto-select the correct attack to tier up, it would be sort of meh.

    Actually if the RT is a flat 5 secs. this is kinda meh. You’re better off just standard MSTRIKing with UCS since Tier-ups are more controlled and not a random mess. You could in theory never tier up berserking.
    The berserk impact will be for stuns, binds, webs etc. and then actually doing some damage versus AS punching

    Really nice QoL improvement for anyone that mstrikes with UAC. I hated wasting a mstrike or getting caught up/stunned while typing out mstr jab vs mstr.

    This will also keep you from hitting critters to no affect with a bare hand (non-UAC) when you come off a stun empty handed before berserk wears off. A little less worrying about what the risks are of berserking out of say, a 3 round stun with an empty hand.

    I don't use Lich. If you want to do business with me, contact me via PM, IG, or on AIM. Or maybe use smoke signals. Don't like it, get off of my lawn.

    probably, actually. mstrike uac is real, real good. at cap 3x pf and 1213 being able to do them constantly is really, really good. essentially getting that but at level 15 with no other real skills required would be uh....strong.

    The default setting is a very welcome change. That should fix the issue where if you try to UAC mstrike something 10 levels or more over you, it won't forever jab and never be able to tier up. If they implemented it properly, that is. So...yeah that probably isn't fixed. It'll be a welcome change if it is.

    You can get berserk well before 15 with CMans.

    and that would be very powerful 10 hours for that warrior before they could get real berserk and get their cman points back
