You will not need to use spoiler tags for off-topic posts, including borderline content, memes, macros, etc. Reputation System You will not use the reputation system in a way that shows bias towards specific members. Repeat Offenders We will no longer be using the warning point system. Instead, temporary bans will be issued to repeat offenders. The decision to ban and the length of the ban will be at the moderators’ discretion. Ban Appeals If you feel you were wrongly banned or that you have changed your ways, you can email me through the Dojo’s contact system (found on my profile underneath “Contact Information”). Your appeal will be discussed by the Dojo staff members before a decision is made.

After playing it for a while I wouldnt say its OP. Yes the AOE dmg is great and I can just pull large amounts of mobs and kill them with ease (Crit Build + Health on Crit ftw). Destroyers can do the same and even easier btw. (Cant be stunned, knockdowned and so on while whirlwhinding, Lyn BM can be CC'ed, only blocks attacks in the first 0.5sec of the whirlwhind, maybe that changes once I can skill more points into it)
But lets consider what actually matters here, Endgame. And I would definitly say that the Class will not be OP in any manner there.
You are a Support DPS class, it is an addition to the Destroyer in PvE. Tanking might be possible but for sure more challenging then with the normal Blademaster. You also do not posses the Single Target Damage a true Blademaster has, at least not as far as I can tell right now.
You can solo Bosses as a Lyn BM without a problem (not that it would be any hard at all with a true BM), the biggest plusoint is the fact that you have 2 Knockdown skills, so you can break through the CC imunity of Bosses and Force choke them afterwards, that is especially great to interrupt Bossattacks that you would otherwise not be able to block or avoid.

But overall, the class is definitly not OP!

I just don't like the fact they can get past the CC immunity. That was put there to encourage group play and just the fact they can do this and FORCE CHOKE BOSSES seems ridiculous. If an actual force master can't pull that off then neither should they.

I think you mean Destroyer, not FM.

They are there to support your squad, they're a lot of "fun" to play because they're much faster paced than most of the other classes.

Bosses don't have immunity to anything, you need to use 2 of a type of status skill to effect them.

i.e. 2 Knockdowns, which the Lyn BM has.

2 Interrupts, 2 knockbacks, etc are needed.

Personally as a regular BM, I have the ability to make bosses "kneel", if you put a couple of classes in a squad like this the dungeons will be much safer/smoother since you can cancel the big nukes the boss has.

My only concern is that "safer/smoother" can quickly mean "ignorable" if it's not done right. I just don't want it to get to the point where a boss's mechanics are ignorable. Edited by spencerBAXLEY

What I mean is if an actual Force master does not have the ability to force choke bosses then neither should the Lyn Blade master, whose only force master properly is the choke itself. Just seems stupid and unfair. Giving this class so many perks.

I'm fairly sure FM's can ice root bosses (someone should correct me if I'm wrong) like summoners can root bosses. Which means there's no need for them to have a force choke.


People really need to relax and perhaps accept that each class has a different purpose. If anyone was going to be disappointed it should be Destroyers, as it feels like the Lyn BM fills a very similar role. Edited by Taekyu

Freezing and rooting a boss is not the same as force choking a boss. Force choking bosses stops attacks all together. Freezing and rooting them doesn't stop their attacks, it stops movement.

While that is true. Freezing/Rooting a boss can have quite a similar effect. The tank can just go behind the boss and he wont be able to turn around resulting in not attacking for the duration of the root/freeze.

Valid points, but my point is the boss can still attack, while force choke stops this all together. I just feel if a wanna be force user such as a lyn blade master can use force choke on a boss, then an ACTUAL force master should get the same perks. In fact I feel it would make more sense that force masters have to ability to force choke bosses but lyn blade masters can only force choke mobs.

Well I cant agree on that tbh.
While you point that an actual force master's choke should be as strong as the Lyn BM's choke, a forcemaster is pure and btw. highest PvE DPS class, together with KFM.
A Lyn BM is a support DPS, just like the Destroyer, and their force choke works just like the destroyers grapple (holding up bosses). You can skill that all attacks on a grappled target restores 2 Chi enabling all other classes spam their skills like crazy. A Lyn BM will not be on par with the FM DPS so I don't see any problem with them being able to do it and the Force Master not.

Well when you explain it like that I guess I can see your point. Force masters damage output is relatively high. Does anyone know if they are treating it as it's own class? Or can Lyns choose Blade master?

Lyn BM is a new Class and Lyns can only choose that, not the "normal" BM. They have a different skill set, some skills work different and are counted as a new class.

Oh well then I do not consider it a new class. They did what I was hoping they would do. Allow Lyns to be blade masters but just have specific skill sets do to race.

just because it is an AOE doesn't limit its uses to groups of mobs only. it can easily apply to single targets.

[color="#FF0000"]You are a Support DPS class[/color], it is an addition to the Destroyer in PvE. Tanking might be possible but for sure more challenging then with the normal Blademaster. You also do not posses the Single Target Damage a true Blademaster has, at least not as far as I can tell right now.[/quote]

people can categorize as much as they want...... it does not change the contents of the package NCSoft has given us --> decent DPS with good AOEs and good mobility. right now i see them with all the best advantages of blademasters and destroyers, without so much of teh weaknesses. can KFMs/blademasters hit hard? yes. can they hit moving/kiting targets with their hard hits? no. can destroyers hit moving targets easily? yes. what cripples assassins? Destroyer spin. can Lyn blades take destroyers well? well a destroyers' main enemy is tripping skills, lyn blades have 2 of those, so yea. do blademasters BURN through battle energy? yes. whats their fix? parry, which all melee classes can [color="#FF0000"]capitalize (BIG TIME)[/color] on, and also requires the blade to stand still. Lyn blades just take a new approach by scrapping parry altogether, using a fighting style that does not depend on parry for energy. categorize as much as you need, in PVP i can easily imagine lyn blades dominating every melee class 1 vs 1, with range classes being their biggest weakness.

You can solo Bosses as a Lyn BM without a problem (not that it would be any hard at all with a true BM), the biggest plusoint is the fact that you have 2 Knockdown skills, so you can break through the CC imunity of Bosses and Force choke them afterwards, that is especially great to interrupt Bossattacks that you would otherwise not be able to block or avoid.

But overall, the class is definitly not OP!

PVE huh? mobs and bosses are not quite famous for being[color="#FF0000"] intelligent and unpredictable.[/color] if i can read its attack patterns and know which of my skills can handle that i can take a boss in my own autopilot mode. PVP, human players are different.

While these are some interesting points, this is a thread for videos about the LBM, not a debate over how OP they are or aren't :/'' I think this is getting pretty off-topic and I keep thinking someone posted new videos when it's just more debating. Edited by Vile Samael
