Sentinel Chants

Post by Thorasta » Sun Nov 06, 2011 12:06 am

Can you have more than one sentinel chant going at the same time?

Sentinels have *massive* debuff abilities - but seeing as they are chants, I wonder if you can only use one at a time.

Chants can be stacked the same as bards do, but it's a lot of trains to be dumping. The int/spi one is worth is vs casters, but not a bunch of minos for obvious reasons. Sadly you will see the former more than the latter due to people being cowards.

Actually I thought only bards could stack chants... thats what made them unique

One chant breaks another so they will expire unless you keep recycling them...unless I missed something crucial.

The chants don't recycle on the casting of any other spell (including other chants). Alternating debuffs, mana drain, bombs, RC heal, they all break any chants, meaning the debuffs are essentially 30 seconds long (maybe 20, I only used the holy debuff and always recast before bombing, so I can't say for sure).

I think the idea originally was to have a full group of melee sentinels, with everyone running a different debuff chant, but it never panned out.

Yeah, a FG can be doable, TSCCC tried it for a little while and ran everybody over for about 2 or 3 weeks until it got predictable.

THe issue with Sentinel chants and chaining them compared to bards is that senti chants cost mana and you run oom quickly as opposed to bards which cast quicker and cost nothing. Same as sader.

But sents have an AOE mana drain which means if you are affecting someone with chants and losing mana doing it, you can have their mana on a non-hit roll aoe too.

On my GvG sents, I train the int/spi debuff.

This is only because it helps with priest harass, which I think the sentinel is pretty strong at.
You can run, but you'll die tired.
