So I'm playing a warrior and I kind of like it so don't take it that I'm somehow complaining. I'm just asking, if there are any tricks for better survival since certain type of mobs are a problem. Some come alone, some come in groups, but I have to be extremely careful or plainly run away and hope to heal just a bit to be able to attack a few times and hopefully kill.
Is there anything I can do against mobs that stun? I can pick some stability skill, but often this is not a real solution since picking it causes me to lose some other skill. Not to mention, if these mobs come with a group. I get knocked on the ground or stand still there unable to do anything for perhaps even 1-3secs. If mob is alone I can in most cases just wait for it to go away, but if there are more than one mob those 1-3 seconds might cause me to lose most of my hp. Not to mention, if its longer stun I might not be able to do anything and go from full hp to zero.
What about mobs that do aoe? For example some big veterans or champion fights? Sometimes it is not possible to see, if there is even any cast animation to indicate its coming. Often during big fights I see ranged spamming stuff at safe range while I dodge around and throw in attacks.
What about mobs that deal loads of damage in short time at melee range. As an example I can say some pirates in certain areas have "fast attack". If I dont see them start it, I might go from 100% hp to under 50% in moments and that is only if there is just one.
Now these are just examples. Are these just something melee just have to deal with or is there something I can do about it? Is it perhaps no different for ranged? I sometimes try to shoot, but that hardly optimal.
Any help or tricks are appreciated! You can also tell I just suck, if that is the truth.
