in Evie
There seems to be a lot more scythies than staffies on the server. Which of these did you choose to main, and why? =0
I think scythe is a lot more forgiving, there really isn't much to complain when you have been given one of the best dodges in the game and mana shield^^
Not to mention that it's also one of the best looking weapons in the game :^) (except for karok's toy whale pillar ofc O3O)

    Scythe is more lag friendly. Double blink gives generous room for error. +10 points for scythe
    It doesn't help that focus is glitched and rage conductor gets canceled in lag. - 40 points for staff.
    Existing glitch boosting Scythe DPS by a long shot. +50 points.

    Chose scythe cause Evie was brand new and when I saw her snap to kill white tyrant with mark of death in her vid I thought that was the tightest jazz I've ever seen in my damn life.

    HONESTLY!!!!! This was the entire reason i even started playing. Scythe was and is still one of the most visually appealing classes in the game. Scythe 4 lyf!!

    I started as Staff. As I have progressed with Evie and maxed my staff skills and some very useful commons I've gone into my scythe tree and started looking back on the darker days of the support class. Scythie and Staffie are both so close to my heart. And ^^^ Okatsu that is some OG stuff right there, word.

    I started out with staff, decided to try out scythe about 2 years later. I haven't looked back at staff since then. Idk, I just liked scythe. Threading enemies together, marking them for death, then controlling their demise with a snap of the finger. I just liked the darker concept. I wouldn't mind trying staff again, but it's changed so much since then, I literally don't know how to use it LOL. Maybe one day I'll give staff a try again, but...live by the scythe, die by the scythe!

    P.S. super quick way to gain sp with mobs. Spirit bind, then sacrifice and watch your sp bar fill up in the snap of a finger ;)

    Started as a Staffie in 2013 and I've always been a Staffie.
    Reason? I'm always a mage user in every other MMO so why not~
    I mean... her playstyle fits me perfectly. I just like the idea of quickly deciding what spell is optional to pewpew at the moment and keeping track of corona/regen cooldowns for support and stuffs... unlike Scythie when you have a simple rotation of smashes more or less

    I like staff because 3 years latter I still can find more efficient spell rotations after tinkering a bit

    Scythe, because I prefer Melee gameplay. Also, picking Evie overall because she's the only one having two different and complete playstyle with her two weapons. (meanwhile Lann and Fiona, ugh. Kai as well isn't that appealing..)

    Vella can be considered too, but the gameplay is kind of... "too easy" so idk :/

    Scythe because I prefer Melee play-style over stationery.

    Honestly, the visuals of having a small-sized sexy girl skirt around the battlefield while wielding an impossibly large scythe and using it with such finesse and speed is what sold me onto the idea. I also like fast-paced melee combat >.>

    Staff because how else are you going to sear the flesh off your enemies and char their bones.

    Staff if I'm having trouble with a battle, boss has a break off, and raids. Scythe if the battle is easy.
