if you use the longbow and shot, then it takes considerable more time to switch to your melee weapon compaired to other ranged weapons/characters->careers.
with every other ranged setup you can just disengage, swap to your ranged and shot at a special and go back to melee to block the coming swings.
it is seldom possible with huntsman+longbow.
whenever any mob finds it’s way to you to engage melee, you cannot shot at a special without taking dmg.
even if you bash, dodge away, switch to ranged, shot the special, swap right back to melee and hold block… you just dont get up the block fast enough. i also tried with different melee weapons and maximum possible attackspeed -> ergo faster block animation afaik.
i understand ranged careers to be special handlers. i enjoy huntsman with longbow in general, but apart from any other ranged career and ranged weapon, i am not able to fullfill that role properly, if any mob makes his way to me.
so i would like you to revisit the swap speed for the huntsman longbow and consider to improve the time needed to “panic block”.
thx for reading.
