    Default Knuckle Knight- am I going to be royally screwed by lag?

    There's usually half a second between pressing the button and the character reacting. I've mostly come to terms with this- I've adapted my running, grabbing and jumping timing to make it a non-issue for moving around the field.

    However, I'm still sometimes having trouble when the monsters move behind me, and I have to turn in order to hit them and with the lag by the time I get around, it's already behind me again. It hasn't caused any deaths so far, but I'm just concerned that my limited target focused, combo-driven melee knuckler is going to be really screwed over by that movement hesitation..

    Same.. I just took up a knuckle knight I found that exact same problem.

    And the accuracy on almost all attacks really sucks. I've become accustomed to not missing on my dag th .__.

    Hmm, I'd prefer not to start again.. I'm hoping the bolt skill will help somewhat, and fortunately our defense is good enough that they can withstand the issue.

    Otherwise *sigh* what classes would be good for a laggy environment? A rain(lol)bowman? Spearman?

    Ohhh. I see what you mean. Which skill tree are you moving through? If it's beam focused then you should try herding a monster(s) to a wall or corner, then start your combo. I have that problem as a Xbow with most of the "hoppy" enemies.

    Is there not a way to have a hybrid kick/beam knuckle user? D:

    Of course there is! You can take both skill tree's but your passives will take some pain until the later levels. As of now I'm both skill tree's and it works beautifully.

    To be honest, I only found a couple of minutes ago that there's actually places to put skill points other than your attack skills, so I'm definitely no expert..

    I have put points into the kick, but I think I'm gonna go with the beam from now. A hybrid would be nice, but I haven't done the math to see how it would all work out. Fortunately the punch line kind of vetos itself, so that should free up some points?

    Anyway, I checked the website and according to the poll, 90% of users have a ping higher than 800ms so I'm feeling slightly more confident about it being addressed.

    Even so..the builds reccomended as a knuckle that I suggest are either kick/beam hybrid with passive's past 40. Or just plain ol' one tree. That issue has been a problem since CB unfortunately..I've learned not to turn when they get behind you, and instead just duck/block till they attack and slide to your front again.

    What would the 'one tree' entail? Just bolt or kick and higher passives?
