Actually Epoch can be maazing for Sinnocence: when he heals, his ALL Reduces. At a certain point (-140 or 160) you can save up to 6 or 9 momentums and use laser slice and punch for a -45 ALL into a 5 turn stun (technically 4 which is easily still better than SWoT) and then bombard him with Combos, Guns and DoTs which do a lot btw until he dies off. I don’t think Pierce would be useful here, however, as he heals back to full HP anyway so the heal must be a 100% or something. In any case you give him a -20 All each heal and by the time he reaches a stunnable point, you’d already have given him a “-HOLY THAT’S A LOT” All resist so he would heal phenomenally despite your efforts. Pierce is such an eye candy skill though
Also I’d like to mention how combo’s an amazing upgrade to DW’s Double/Triple/Sextuple move by compressing all in one, this giving rise to more skill slots. Love this class.
Also, no, Shift’s extra turn stuff’s not broken in the powerhouse sense. The class doesn’t have a reliable (as in, on usage of move) shield (for more than a turn) or a HoT effect, so this is the class’s way of getting to that point. Building up to that without dying requires knowing your opponent—you should know if Boost or Hex is required and when to use Ultra which is based on the bosses, and when you do get to 9/12 momentum, you should know how to judiciously ise the class to stay alive and kick ass at the same time. The CDs on the class were made extraordinarily large (being at 11 for Boost and 14-19 for Hex) for this specific reason (so in 6 turns of extra turns and up to 7 to 10 turns of extra turns will you be able to use Boost/Hex or Ultras respectively), or else you’d have a better heal than PDL does. It teaches you how to use pets (and in some cases guests) to their best potential (except Baby Dragon, everyone knew how to use that). I actually grew to understand why the regular Boosts/Hexes were made so weak (except defense).
Also, this thing helped me beat up the Unraveler with comparative ease and way less luck than SW or even DmK. It’s a beast. (Though, I still had to try a bunch to get the rotations right.
