Cool Guy Dont like asborb? i hate drain!

hey guys. u have to understand the only thing light side has against the dark is absorb. it has to be powerful enought to keep the balance. i remeber a poll early where "which side are you". a lot of ppl voted dark. so if absorb gets any weaker then the light side doesnt stand a chance.

n00b1,"but u have heal and can live forever" ---> yeah but heal cant work unless u have 1/2 ur force meter charged up. a skilled sith should be able to keep draining and then lighting. then drain.......

n00b2,"but u have mindtrick" ----> yeah but level 3 mindtrick can be counter by level 1 seeing. big deal, light jedis have to waste an extar 6~7 force points.

n00b3,"but u have protect" ------> yeah but protect needs half the meter and is powerless against drain.

sith lord1,"stick with the dark side. with drain, we cant lose"

sith lord2,"yeah even if u dont have drain, use the force to listen if he has absorb on, and wait until he's drained out himself."

sith lord3,"drain is good, because absorb cant absorb it."



hey. how ya doin?

i agree that absorb isn't overpowerd and that drain can be a pain sometimes....but this isn't that hard to counter.........

absorb is powerfull, but sithlord2 is relying on the fact that they won't use it effectively....if everybody used it effectively i'd understand why people say it's overpowered.......but nobody does, just me and a couple others

Actually drain is better...

I can prevent saber throws, you can't.

so, it isn't that hard to dodge a saber throw, and if you aren't swinging like a mad man (or woman) you won't have a problem with saber throw

besides, light side can stop push/pull + backstab/sweep spammers (yes drain can but not as easily)

absorb gets a FULL force pool from not even a second of grip, take 5, maybe 10 damage, get a full force pool, good deal, you can use heal to heal it back and you still have half a force pool left


personally i think both sides are fairly well balanced, thats why i use both force sides

Thumbs up I eat cheese for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

At level 3, absorb absorbs even level 3 drain. A saber can block saber throw quite easily. 'Nuff said.

if you use force against someone who is light and you are dark and they are using absorb and your getting mad cause thats all they do, a good hint of advice is to learn to master the lightsaber so when they use absorb you unleash a full on assult with your saber then they sh!t their pants.

ahhhh well...
but anyway...how about absorb taking in force powers instead of converting damage to force. And to prevent the absorber from getting too little unlike now when you can get full force easily when absorbing, make absorb last....even longer !! ahh noooo, not longer...it's long enough.
..ahh whatever...maybe someone will complain that seeing needs to be switched on to avoid snipes.
or maybe complain that u can't die during dark rage... saying how unrealistic ! in star wars if u can't die u could suicide attack everyone and then run away to recover.

lalalallaa...
i hate being a sith probe
