in woe you are either a perfect glass cannon or a perfect demihuman tank. you cant be excellent in both fields. a glass cannon backed with a tank. if the tank dies, glass cannon will follow.
also, playing a robot is not about how we whine about our limitation, but learn to overcome our limitation.
- front/backslide will leave neutral barrier behind, but if you take one step, the barrier will come back to you. then learn how to frontslide and step to make your barrier always at your side.
- SD range reduced to 5x5 when using neutral barrier. no worry, 5x5 aoe is still a good range. just learn to move your robot next to chars that in top priority to be blasted. you can also use cast time gear on top of dex boots for insta-SD. insta-SD will cut reaction time of people to hide or kill you.
- about the time of using SD wisely, of course recaller wants that blast to be used in really perfect situation, coz 5 mins is long time to be wasted, and you cant expect a perfect situation happens right when your SD is in cooldown. i sometimes wiped entire guild using SD just after they recalled, that's one of perfect situation example. if you want to spam SD, just make several 175 robots just like acolyte.
- when in SD cooldown, you can be a troll by spamming ice launcher under string, or spreading status effect using 4 slotted maces. or help killing using axe boomerang with +9 bellum guillotine.
at the end of the day. again, the term "OP or strong" is about how we play the class and maximize the class true potential. Gods and MVPs are just addons to make people perform better, without them people can still be a good and strong WoE player if they play their class properly.
Oh, one more thing, WoE is all about team work. some people will able to cover your weakness while you play as their strength. So please, dont be selfish and solo WoE. strongest individual has no value on zero teamwork.
