Katar was my favorite PvP class. I also was interested in solo dungeons by katar. But after 90 PvP and Level 60 mastery came, EVERYTHING CHANGED! In PvE... just look at my PvE guide. And half dps set is not suitable for 90 pvp. Fortunately, many tips of Katar are still can be used in PvP. I don't quite want to call this a guide, cuz I don't want to introduce too much basic knowledge of Katar. And the people who want to play Katar pvp, must play pve to lv up.
Only one tips for New pvp players: In 30s, Only can be stunned 1 times! So do not use stun if you don't have to.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Katar:
High Hp. High critdmg. High general dmg reduction. High slay line. Have a good stun skill. A healing skill with 2.4s cd.
Long gcd. Buffs and debuffs require a long time. The high slay line is base on buffs and debuffs.
Glove= Inner strength cd-10% Very Important cd from 3s to 2.4s
Belt= Holy Note (Bard) cd-10% Very Important cd from 15s to 12s
All -2/crtdmg 6%
Weapon Thunderous stone, reroll to -2%
Just normal PvP set.
Points: same to others
I clicked a Combo with tachi for connection.
Method: change sub to Tachi and click it, then change sub to bard.
All purple dps sets.
Trophy: Stone+heart. When we have 20% atk spd 95 gold, let heart retire.
Weapon element: Not important, Most of your dmg is violet. Dark, Lightning is a little bit better.
EIdo: 24%dmg/25% atk spd, 8%dmg/60% critdmg.
Mount: All stat 20%， All resist 20%, Critdmg 40%
1. The most important for Katar: jump cast 2 skills
The duration of jump is 0.9s. Some skills' gcd is lower than it. So, it is possible to use 2 skill in the air. I will post a video for an example below.
Blitz gcd is 0.6s
Jump+0.1s+Blitz+0.6s + other skills
Practice this skill, it helps u do more dmg in the duration of stun.
2. 0.1s Frantic Lotus
Use the jump cast 2 skills
Frantic Lotus + Lotus Strike, for one more red point.
Eg. Jump, Blitz, Lotus Strike + Jump, 0.1s Frantic Lotus, Lotus Strike.
3. Keep Katar's skill dmg 36%+:
Inner strength will cost both red and blue points, each+6% katar skill dmg. So max:36%
Same to Lotus Strike: mas: 36%
Theoretically, the max can be 72% when both max.
But 36% ~54% is more possible in reality.
There are totally 4 buffs, max stack for each is 3. So, each max stack is 18%
Cost one point can refresh the duration time for whole stack.
Eg. I have 2 blue point buff from Inner strength. Then, I use Inner Strength to cost one more blue point. Now, 3 stacks of this buff, and the duration time is refreshed.
Use this skill to keep 36%+ katar dmg skill dmg.
4. Inner Strength + Holy Note +Inner Strength.
For emergency healing.
5. Debuff of Frantic Lotus
You don't have to keep press it. After the target has one stack, you can use other skills and hits to stack it.
Test it again, no, you have to press it to stack. Other hit can only stack dmg dealt to boss...
6. Highest burst
When you have 36%+ Katar skill dmg, the target has 10 stack of Frantic Lotus, and 3 stacks Dot.
(Jump, Blitz, Lotus Strike) + (Jump, 0.1s Frantic Lotus)+ (Jump, Blitz, Lotus Strike)
7. Practice combos in the bot-right corner of Candeo Mash
Like what I show in the video below.
Jump Cast 2 skills: False&Success.
The 1st time is showing the false one, you can see the atk is after the gcd of 2nd skill.
The 2nd time is showing the right one, the atk is appear during the 2nd skill.
