I guess you suffer same issue of skewed perception. Finest example of game imbalance and how funnily one can put it(not seeing it as imbalance of course), can be found in one of the posts above - "classes fluctuate based on inner levels".

Just because you need Goose and other supplementary skills such as certain inner, skills from other schools etc. to actually stand a chance against classes who needs those not, does not make the game balanced by any means - in fact that is what makes it broken.

I agree, goose is a given, everyone needs it.

 

But i only have my Emeis abilities, and i beat ppl with multiple sets and inners on a regular basis.

Pros like Zyden or Saki usually beat me using only their class abilities, like long style boxing or kicks. No need for flying horse when they outplay me.  Those who needs it, i usually beat em anyway. 

 

If you have trouble fighting ppl with lots of abilities, you need to practice moar!

That part about goose is true, but the rest is bullshit.

i don't think you duel often.

And regardless of the inner used, it's usually the same ppl on top

I have read the little descriptions of them.  Can any one put some infor up about the schools and give me an idea what I might want to play.

Thanks in advnace.

Well.. you can find indepth info on the skills, and there's even ingame NPCs as part of the newbie questline that explain each school & show you their skills. For a basic rundown, though: (this is mostly PvP oriented, as all schools do fine in PvE, but the game has open world, FFA pvp)

Shaolin: (palm,kicks,staff) AoE support & control - One of the weaker schools in the game atm

Wudang: (sword,sword, dual-sword) Kind of a hybrid between long range magic attacks (chi) and defense. One of the tankier classes in the game. They have some pretty strong skills, but somewhat limited AoE. They eventually can proc chi shields that absorb dmg and have limited internal damage (mostly direct damage attacks). - A fairly strong / balanced class, though atm they have a rough start as they are easily kiteable by other schools (specifically tang, & royal guards). One of the most popular schools atm.

Emei: (daggers, palm) AoE support & internal dmg - One of the weaker schools in the game atm

Beggar's Sect: (stick,palm,stick) AoE direct damage - One of the weaker schools in the game atm

Tangmen: (dagger, darts) Very strong long-range damage. Specializes in ranged assassinations, both internal & external damage. (direct and damage over time). One of the strongest PvP classes atm, fairly popular.

Scholar's: (sword, kick, dual-sword) Very strong AoE direct damage. One of the hardest hitting external attack schools in the game currently. Limited internal damage and almost entirely close-range. Fairly popular.

Wanderer's Valley: (dual-sword, fist / kicks) This is one of the more unique schools. Highly offense oriented, specializes in internal injuries and debuffs. Has lots of attacks that poison yourself to deal damage to your enemies & life leech. Tricky school to master, but extremely deadly when played well. One of the least played schools in the game, and has the highest skill-cap out of all the schools (imho). Focuses on ganking & unloading as much damage on your opponent before running out of energy (and then hopefully running away).

Royal Guard's: (sword, claws, chains) This is THE MOST overpowered class in the game. It's also the most popular alongside Wudang & Scholar schools. Focuses on heavy melee damage, with ranged attacks (claws / chains) that can also pull your opponent to you. The pulls also do pretty crazy amounts of damage if not blocked. Their only real downside is you can overwhelm them in melee if you are a scholar or high-lvl Wudang.

- Hope that helps

Almost everything here is wrong. I specially loled at emeis being weak( world champions) and Rg being strong (weakest school by a large margin)

Think of something witty and pretend that I typed it in this spot :)

From the horses mouth.  Enjoy.

People like YOU are the reason I am playing RG. I thought RG was gonna be awesome in PvP and that was a big fat lie.

RG might be OP in PvE content, but PvE content isn't the meat of the game and they are probably only OP to new players. 

So to any undecided if u want to kick butt in PvP, probably take emei or tangman IMO, just because tangman can range extremely well.

RG can seem OP with the chain to those who are not used to fighting them.  However, against skilled players the chain almost becomes useless becuase it's so easy to read when the attacks and block breakers are going to happen.  However, if you switch to your single blade or fist set during the fight, you will throw off a lot of players.  A lot of RGs seem to use the chain as a crutch and don't bother to really learn the strenghts of the other two basic sets.  BTW, the single blade rage can do up to 4 times the amount of damage that the chain rager can do.  The fist set charge attack that works on knocked down opponents does twice the amount of damage of teh chain rage and is on a 3 second cool down.  Not to mention the fist set has two different moves that can do knockdowns which one of them is also a blockbreaker.  This is assuming those skills are leveled to equal levels.

RG isn't as gimp as you think it is in PVP.  It's just against skilled players you have to work a little harder.  Just try working with all of the sets.  I'm not really saying you only use chain, but I have a feeling that you probably do.
