Disclaimer: This is more of a rant, than an attempt to nerf the samurai. First of all, don't get me wrong.. I have a necro/samurai/pally. It really rocks. I have tons of fun playing it because it's overpowered. However, a lot of samurai concepts bother me because it is not intuitively pleasing to my senses. Here's some examples: 1) A Samurai with a 2 handed sword parries better than a pure defensive fighter with a shield. 2) A Samurai gets to parry energy bolts and dragon fireballs with a 2 handed sword. A fighter with a shield.. can't. 3) A samurai gets LUCK! From honoring his opponents? Wtf? 4) A samurai gets additional damage from honoring his opponents and landing perfect blows after one another. This i like! However, combined with vampiric embrace and life leech weapons, this means that this is the BEST possible DEFENSE available to all fighters. It's not the offense that gets me irked. I like the offense.. It's very samurai-ish to deal lots of fatal blows. It's the best defense part that doesn't make much sense. As i said, this is more of a rant. Not an attempt to nerf things that are fun. Though, if i had one change to make, i would make it so fighter-shields can parry MUCH better than samurais.
