Perspective from a new player I guess.
Mage - Good dps but squishy, so on par with most mages in well most games.
Archer - Same as the above though feels more mobile than the mage.
Knight - Brokenly amazing cause I can smashface my way through anything with Healing Strike.
Runaway - Squishy and lacking damage, tends to burn mana at a rate equal to a Mage channel (Inferno or Death Grip) maybe even faster with some skill combos.
To focus on Runaway as per the topic...
Dancing Blade - Is good for high kite situations as you can toss em and run the other way then bring em back, killing weaker mobs.
Pyrotechnics - Meshes moderately well with Mosh Pit as you channel for 6s and Most Pit stuns for 5s but with Mosh Pit throwing mobs every which way you might not hit your intended target and its damage is a bit lackluster for standing still so long. Standing still so long allows the ranged mobs to kick your face in so its not viable mid-game ish with Zekes in a lot of castles.
Push - As stated in other posts, one of the best (if not best) skill currently.
Headbang - Eh, I havnt really used it as I cant seem to get loot so im even squishier than others so smashing my own shields or hp into the ground seems...masochistic.
Spin Spin Sugar - Lacking in damage but good for some small mobility and CC.
Sirens Stun - >_> Seriously? Line? What about..Cone?
Shred - You go from a 2-3hit wonder to a 1hit wonder and all the while you wonder who thought up this piece of trash. Remove shield eat, make it cone, make it travel faster. And if those dont make this skill not suck so bad no one uses it, try upping its lackluster damage too.
Rebel Yell - Handy as all hell, maybe some more shielding to improve the characters generalized lack of surviving?
Most Pit - Besides it tossing mobs in random ass directions (do you know what a mosh pit is? O_o) its not a bad skill. Maybe make it either A: Keep mobs in their positions upon use or B: Drag everything closer (kinda like mage skill...umm alt-tabbing...Vortex Rift) though maybe not nearly as well stacked (even if mosh pits by definition are tightly packed)/
Teen Spirit - Only good for trash mob castles or if you can blow up Dr Skull's friendly little chain gang quick.
Mean Pinball - Used it in ONE dungeon (saw this skill in video and was like "Ooohhh that looks awesome!).....probably the largest letdown of all her skills. Damage? Subpar. Mobility tool? Eeehh yeah you can move around kinda quickly but....you end up in worse situations than you might be trying to get out of. Honestly all I remember from its short lived life on my skillbar.
Im not even going to try and sound like I know what im talking about here except to say..
Mana? Whats that? Where can I get that?
Living? What? Nooo fool im a rockstar, gotta die young!
I like everything except the near flat chest. Now im not saying she needs breasts the size of Texas or anything but maybe some ever so slightly noticable just so someone looking at your monitor can tell its female without hearing the voice and saying "Either thats a chick or that dude got his nuts crushed at an early age".
Iunno what the basic is as I got the Skin/FX in the pack but I like it :D
Honestly she isnt OMGWTF terrible. Shes somewhere between "Grrr, gonna go play my " and "Useless Emo rocker b!@#$!" And with the whole "incoming mob balance patch which may or may not make Knight not so OP" I just look at my Runaway and go "You are so screwed."
Also for anyone reading who has not played...For the 10-14 stetch people say shes horrid in...Example!
I beat Durrr with my lvl13 Mage (12 Knight/Archer/Runaway). Went to the next region and noticed the lvl15 maps were rather easy so grinded there. Big Bow Wow wasnt really an issue for anyone. Staremastery wasnt really an issue either. Team Skull for one reason or another was a bit harsh on my Runaway. At 13 my Archer/Mage/Knight were easily farming The Barn (lvl17 npc castle) while my Runaway would walk in and go "...ow." and either A: fall over or B: run a potion IV drip until depletion or death. Even at 14 shes still having issues and thats probably because of the lack of gear I get for her.
