I know that Central and Duelist stated that Jade is fading from PvP. I think they are both absolutely incorrect, I think Jade has hit an all time high in PvP. At level 100,, on my lower rank and high rank, I am seeing more and more jades. I am packing three shrike now, and am thinking of adding more. I just battled a Balance Jade, at 76% resist, a Death at 81% resist. I don't know how many I battled Friday night, but this is getting crazy.
I watched some battles, and picked out the warlords, and I noted at least 50% of the PvP players were Jades.
Plus in the Que there are no 3v3 and 4v4, Jade has destroyed that.
All I can say is, KI could lose a little money and drop the Jade line, to really improve the game. Or just pick Jade against Jade when matching. Improving the game should be a concern, not how many Crowns players spend on Jade.
I guess I'm just tried of the amount of time it takes fighting a Jade..... complaint done.
I pack 2 Shrikes Jadezillas and it should be able to cut down the resist. There's been talk of a very successful death pvp build on Duelist which uses full jade gear and juju spam to lock down shrike. Mass blades, traps and OHKO. I recently fought a Balance who did the same thing but instead of juju, they balance dispelled me! SERIOUSLY. It's not a cheat or anything hut dispels really should be banned because dispel spam is baloney. Anyway more on topic, I agree the jade should be banned.
Bit late on thread but guys, Jade is a cool way to play, different strategy and no impossible to beat. I play with Jade on my lvl 100 Wizard, and I do amazing hits of 10k+ Find a way to defeat resist, play with shadows, that is why they are there for. Jade with Shadows ftw
Jade is ruining pvp in my opinion. All they do if jade gear + pet with resist to immune to a school and spam dispels/weakness, Just a cheat way to win imo.
Its honestly not hard to win when you're a life jade with 75%-immune to some schools, All you do is spam plague and dispels. And heal everytime you get hit with 100 damage
In a few years at this rate, Everyone will be immune to every school.
Well, as long as they don't have immunity, I'm fine with it. There are low level jades too, do you know how annoying that is? Yet, I still got to commander with my level 51 Death with 0 resist. It just takes a little strategy and piercing. nothing big to worry about here in my opinion. . .
Jade gear and school specific immunity is why shrike is used, enough said. Jade gear has been popular again due to shrike in that people think jade gear will help them counter shrike but soon learn fast to combine them. Piercing is what it's all about and so as soon as I realized this I created my pet to have piercing instead of resists, so jade up everyone because there is something else I discovered to that gets me win after win after win with jade shrikers.
