R/K 70-elite

What exactly is the 70-elite for R/K? I only can find it described as "Your Strike of Punishment doesn't require a shield", but without having the elite I already can use the skill without shield...

DISCLAIMER: i do not play r/k. just looked at the skills using an addon. hopefully some1 can come by with screenies/explanation of the actual skills.






what my addon says. i'd take it with a grain of salt though.


from what i see, instead of just making the target unable to attack(pre-elite strike of punishment), it stuns them.

Yeah got same answer ingame, thanks Cike :)

Now I'm wondering if I'll get the elite. As far as I know, stuns don't work on bosses. The disabling to carry out physical attacks does seem to work on them.

Several patches ago, strike of punishment skill of knight-only required a shield. That is the reason the "initial" description of teh elite was it wasnt requiring shield.

After some patches, skill was changed and didnt require a shiled for anyone. That time the elite got changed to adding a stun effect on skill.

The disabling effect of original skill (is like a "physical silence") works normally on mobs and pvp. It doesnt work on bosses .. ofc . However: with the elite swapped to a stun-effect, u can use it as an "interrupt" to bosses. Its same as all stun skills that although do not stun bosses, they r used as interrupts to stop certain casts. Not to mention that in pvp the skill simply rules.

Hope it helps

Yes 70 elite is ... "Crap" a stun that can only be removed by level 50 pvp gloves...

As long as the stun at least has some benefit in pve it's ok for me, already much better than the 60-70 elites for p/r lol

at least it doesn't break the combo like r/p...or is functionally useless since day 1 like s/d...

while they are not class-defining, they are in no way bad...

Oh that's a bit of a shame. I'll have to settle for a nice PVP skill then I guess :)

if the stun doesnt work on bosses as interrupt, i would suggest u make a bug report for that. reason is that it IS a bug since all stuns/knockdowns in game work as interrupts too afaik, apart from the standard interrupt-only-skills (eg silence, throat attack etc).
Few names: charge, shock, shock strike, rune overload (ch/w), white hit (r/m when opportunity on), blasting cyclone, shout, sou trauma, and rest i may have forgotten
