Channelers are boring. Unless its a glass mage elf with a lightning debuff spire. Pretty poor tactics, but fun.

I agree about them being kinda boring. Only exception being at massive bane on a mage getting lots of killshots.

They lack anything class defining except for boring bolts and the 3 dmg lines, which is not worth noting because they are all covered by SoS and the secondary effects are nothing to write home about.

I would give each of the bolts an additional effect. A 5 second root on cold, another dot on fire that stacks with everything and a powerblock on lightning. Would probably have to lock out the other 2 once one is trained.

totally disagree. Channies can be hella fun to play if you know how. Triple fire dot with irieki with -50 fire resist. Ice/mana dot and two fire dots with shade with -50 fire and -50 ice resist. Takes time to cast all the spells but if you are able to, targets will drop quick! And they have two damage shields plus the mage shielding. Can be awesome grp toons for large or small scale. You can even go healer channy and have even more grp support(although I prefer mage). But ya, I dont see anything boring about this toon once your in combat.

Anyway, im torn between shade or irieki for my fav race. They both have HoTs. Shade=no blind(good for hitting high def) Irieki=dual wield(extra atr plus stylebane)

Couldn't agree more buddy, Whoever says channys are boring they just dont know how to play them.

Healer channies are kinda ineffective. Pretty sure they have poor stances and low atr, so not great offensive capabilities, and since they only get Archetype heals (BM and PoM) they're not even all that useful as healers. Only time you'd really see one used is in a true stealth spec, because they're the only healers that can go invisible.

Healer channies do ok. The block and heals come in useful and they nuke at least as hard as any other healer tbh. I'm just not a fan of healers in general.

You can say something as many times as you like. You can even believe what you're saying. Doesn't make it true.

I could make a list of why shades aren't even top 3 for channies, but anyone worth explaining it to already knows.

I could make a list too, but then I'd have to admit that my favorite race is suboptimal. IT'S STILL TRUE TO ME DAMMIT.

Elf AM channie with 68 con. Surviving on it takes real skill especially when playing solo. You can easily hit 22-2300 atr in O-stance.
