I know that feel... as a wizard. I don't know what the other classes can do against sorcerers. I don't last 4 seconds alive unless they miss their varetyr spear or I anticipate it and use my ice wall.
I guess that classes with higher defenses or stuns could do it better.
Anyway, the game may not be designed for 1 vs 1.
I can't do much as a warrior. I am almost full Colosseum gear, +7 Colosseum, Great Sword, 8khp unbuffed. Won Colosseum 10 times (which sets me in the rank of people that are good with their Warrior).
I have good skills as a PvPer, but even with all my gear and knowledge, they are almost impossible to beat. Even if they are undergeared.
Let say they Freeze me to start their combo, I use Endure for a 40% damage reduction. Survive the couple burst with 2.5-3k missing hp and I didn't even start.
Get near, Bowling Bash, Bash, Bash, Stun, Aura Strike, Aura Strike.
Now they are up again, they use Deluge or something to outheal all the damage I got in. They freeze me again.
I use Parrying to push my parry at 70%, eat another 2-3k dmg combo.
I use battle leap for second and last stun I'll be able to pull out before dieing, Bowling Bash, Bash, Bash until I get 100 Hatred. Tension Relax to heal myself. continue to hit until their Heal or Freeze is back up.
Then I die.
Cause their cooldown are ridiculously low. They have a stun every 30 seconds, can freeze you or slow down your movement speed at about the same rate. Their heal is incredibly strong.
as a Tank warrior I have:
90sec Stun. 70Sec battle leap. 120 second self-heal.
So no matter what happen, unless they miss a freeze or you luckily crit them with a Rage Strike, you lose the fight because they regain their abilites much faster.
It's what make them Overpowered. It's not normal that, for example in Colo, you must have 2-3 player to take one down.
