It has been more than a month since the Kage was modified (FINALLY) so I decided to open this topic in order to have opinions about the class (whether in PvP or PvE) what you would like as possible improvements / nerf.
For those who are late/new:
The rework of the Kage was done during the v40 patch (released on December 6, 2018)
It is a hybrid class (except for the water stance which is only magical ) a little special because once you have selected a stance, all your damage will have the same element (like the annihilator with the bullets)
The different stances
This class wants to be unique because of its design and its way of playing.
Factor to be taken into account: "Elemental Resistance vs PDPS skills is now capped at 50%.
This change only affects classes that can change their elemental damage (Annihilator and Kage). Their damage vs 70 resistance will limited to 50 just like if someone had 70 pierce." - Jordan, Patch v40

My opinion about the class:
I haven't played it enough (mainly in pvp, I started building this class on a whim ) to give a clear opinion on it, however I really appreciate it, I expected a more classic physical DPS (with short and medium range skills).I also have the feeling that it's not THE new class that will end up top kill at each TW, causing monstrous damage (or I need to review my equipment because it's not crazy)
In terms of stances, in terms of teamplay, the water stance is probably the best (disarmament, reduced g-heal, magic attack buff, reduction of ice resistance and move speed etc etc.) in addition to a Time Manipulator / Conjurer.
The stance fire is also not bad, the major part of the skills are magical but the p-dmg skills are double / triple hit. I'll see it with a DK or a Mecha Ares (or both)
Nature stance should be playable (not all players think of filling their nature resistances in addition to the brand system allowing to obtain side effects (stun, damage in addition, silence).
Lightning stance seems to me to be the annoying stance, various tp, stun, a triple atk buff that can be fun with the double atk buff of the zumi.
So, what's your opinion/suggestion ?
