Tricky Aion 2 @ Youtube
This is the second movie in the Tricky Aion series
This is in no way a cry for recognizion PvP-wise, clearly the Signet Silence rotation that I use doesn't require much skill.
I was tired of seeing every Assassin cry about how our class sucks in PvP, which is the sole reason I started PvPing. I had thought about the possibility of a stunlock rotation with Signet Silence for some time, so I wasted some stigma shards and went to Inggison, however it wasn't a waste after all.
There's about 3 minutes of actual PvP in this movie, the rest is lecturing by our kind 'not so stupid anymore' Assassin. After that we take a look at the horrible Elyos-/Asmo-lagspikes that occur because of the lovely CryEngine which clearly isn't made/optimized for a MMO.
Answers from later in this thread:
First when I changed stigmabuild to the Signet Silence tree, I had Aethertwisting instead of Oath of Accuracy, however I soon found out that it didn't work with my base 1095 magical accuracy. Some of the fights in Tricky1 are without Oath, but with that low Magical Accuracy it would often be resisted on Chain or Cloth users.
I replaced Aethertwisting with Oath after a week or so. With Oath there has been no problems in terms of 'natural' resistance. There has only been one time where Signet Silence was naturally resisted, and it was on a magic resist cleric who I don't recall the name of.
Other than that there has been ZERO cases where Signet Silence was resisted(With Oath of Accuracy).
The toughest Magic Resist Cleric I've fought was Mattack in Tricky1, at that time he had about 2.1k Magic Resist. The fight is here @ youtube (without sound ATM, since it got raped) or @ Megavideo if you manually scroll to 25:25.
"But that's just one single Magic resistance cleric where you got lucky!, else you could have shown lots more MR cleric fights! " - It's actually not so easy to find decent fights, so no I haven't fought lots of MR clerics who're geared as Mattack is. When I engage against an enemy player with the intention that the fight is for Tricky Aion he first of all has got to have good gear. It's only one or two people in Tricky1 who have equal or lower quality gear than what I was wearing. Those fights were chosen because I found them entertaining. In Tricky2 they're wearing much better gear.
There's for example Oak the Chanter (Clip). In that fight I did a perfect Stunlock. I think he was wearing Fenris.
And also Loewang the spiritmaster (Clip). He was in full 30e
Next is the enemy HP. If I stalk a guy who isn't on full HP I often wait till he regains it somehow. It wouldn't make much difference, since I have quite some time to kill my enemy in the Stunlock, it's mostly to avoid the "but you killed people on low HP!!!" statement.
I'm fully aware that the biggest doubt against Signet Silence is the whole Magical Accuracy problem, The Stupid Assassin even says it in Tricky1 after watching the Signet silence PvP video - "And Signet Silence far from lands in every battle because of Magical Accuracy!"
But no I didn't fight hundreds of fights to pick out the ones where Signet Silence wasn't resisted, I fought those fights to pick out the best and most enjoyable ones IMO
