Oozo Strikes Back 8


This is another entertainment style vid. I've indicated the HP of my opponents just to give an idea of what their gear level is. HP is definitely not a good way to judge skill, however.

I start this movie off with a couple of losses because people need to understand that I am a mature and level-headed PvPer. I won't publicly trash talk or demean people I kill or beat in PvP. I'd like to expect the same from others, but I know I can't. I lose fights against good players. It happens. Sometimes I am outgeared. Sometimes my crucial cooldowns aren't up. Sometimes I lose because of a class disadvantage (like mercenaries when fighting me, for example). Sometimes I just flat-out get outplayed. I expect that most players experience the same.

I've chosen (with a few exceptions) to go with "nail-biter" types of fights in this movie with very close outcomes. Most of the people in this movie are well-geared or at least have better overal gear than myself. My gear is a mixture of centurion and champion gear. I do not have biochem, however I will pop consumables here and there.

When I set out to make a movie, I typically have one of two goals in mind. And, that is either to educate or entertain.

Hope you enjoy.

"jump left to LOS sniper/gunslinger"

loved that.

Ballin vid man, just a quick question i see you have gut (i think) how is your spec during this footage if you would be so kind to share it that would be great.

Edit: I actually found your build on your blog, i might give this build a try atm i am full assault, just not sure if i wanna let go off that retardedly hard hitting HiB yet ;3

Ps: i m french so sorry for my bad english tryed my to do my best .

As title say i m bored to see you playing well but your spe make u lost some fight u should have won .
Also wont be scare off maurauder anymore . u can beat all spe in 1vs1 even 1vs2 .
Only thing is hard to finish healer cause lack spike dmg but anyway vanguard cant kill healer iff they play well .

here it is :

some key point in gear :

U should use combat teck for 0.5 second aoe stun and 15% crit shock strike.

U should have around 800 spell dmg 25% crit and close as possible 100% crit dmg bonus .

D'ont forget u can use pve module and sophistication in pvp gear to reach the cap .
( i m aslo trying play with tank pvp gear for the 5% dmg bonus with all mod and sophitication swaped , still sorking on it )

Why it s far better than your's (or even the almost 3 buttons assault one .)

You gonna play with ion cell give you 50% mitigation vs 25% in your spe . ( mean 25% less damage taken ...)

You can guard someone and that s vanguard job , that also more team pvp oriented .

One the key point that everyone miss on that spe is pusle generator work with : grenade (full stack give your same dmg as plastique assault !!! ) mortar voley ( full stack hit for 3.5-4K crit each hit ). when u use those u wont destack the generator only canon will .
Somortar voley + aoe stun + canon pulse can rip whole team .

Ion pulse hit for 2.5-3K crit .
(So u understand first thing u have to do is getting 5 ion pusle hit before try kill someone )

You have fire strike and shoke strike for one ammo for around 6K dmg .

Great tanking ability 50% base mitigation u add 25 %from your reactive shield and 20% while stuned .

This is team spe iff you can't live without snare u can remove the 9% aim in neural and ion overload .( u gonna loose approx 100 dmg normal hit and 300 on crit , few crit % too )

Only lack buster on this spe u don t have hight burst cause all your ability will hit for close 3.5K crit , and u are kinda close combat but with hold the line and your mitigation it s easy to get in .

Just give it good try won t gonna get back to hybrid spe .
Not talking about free to play assault one cause hybrid and tactics spe require more skill and combat knowlege to be played right .

Ah i love your video and your blog keep going

Hey, good post. This build or something similar to it is something I've considered. I love the 20% dmg reduction when stunned and I really want to test out the damage boosted plasma aoe.

The build you posted will probably be my next project for doing more group oriented videos (guarding a healer). No way I'm going to play a build without Hold the Line. It's too damn good!

I would dearly miss setting people on fire with just hammer shot though. Oh, and the utility of Inc. grenade. It's a main reason I play my build. I'd really miss it for keeping people off of doors and nodes in warzones.

The build you posted should be better for Huttball and World PvP though, IMO.

edit: After looking at it a bit more, I think it needs the snare skills from Ion Cell so I might go with something more like the following.

But, it depends. As you mentioned, I would lose damage. If I had someone in group with me to keep people snared then dmg might be the way to go.

Hi mate,

Really like your vids, keep up the good work. I especially like the way your edit your videos with the zoom and slow motion effects etc.. I was wondering if you could tell me which video editing software you use please?
I have just started making a few vids myself and am looking for the right software, thanks in advance
