GG vs Palm Strike

Bringing back a much-hated conversation.


  • Cripple on demand with the beginning of your chain, keep them crippled throughout the chain.
  • Can mini-spike between spikes with DW
  • Has an IAS/IMS with little disadvantage


  • Cripple every 4 seconds with some damage thrown in
  • Cheap, rechargable, spammable elite with crip
  • Fast recharging spike
  • Has a variety of IASs to choose from, including Flail, Flurry, and Frenzy.
  • Pressures in between with Palm Strike~>Death Blossom
  • Can mini-spike between spikes, and can still pressure with PS~>DB.
  • PS isnt blockable, nor is it an ench that can be removed.


  • Ench removal, all too common everywhere.
  • Blocks
  • Standard anti-sin, like blind, etc


  • Blocks, to a limit. Can still spam with PS/DB and hope damage goes through.
  • Blind also limits the PS sin, but it can keep an enemy crippled by spamming PS, which, as a touch skill, is unaffected by blind iirc.

The only advantage of Grenth's Grasp over this is that it can keep the opponent crippled throughout the chain, which is also possible on the PS spiker if you use PS/DB at the end of the spike.

Compare this to the previously mentioned Eviscerate vs Primal Axe/ WE Axe; the latter pump huge damage, evis pumps damage and utility. Evis does certain things better to be able to warrant its own build page; Grenth's Grasp does not. Jebuspachi-1-1.jpgMcPachirisu 22:39, 15 January 2009 (EST)

Well you've convinced at least me this should be archived. But I still have a feeling it'll see use again after Palm Strike's recharge is eventually nerfed. - Ins420sig420 11:47, 16 January 2009 (EST)

yea, we may see GG used again if Palm Strike gets a recharge nerf or something...or if they take out the crippled part.--IkimonoNeeds more ParagonMonk-Paragon-icon 01:20, 17 January 2009 (EST)

Life Sheath fucks Palm Strike sins over, shut the fuck up imo. - Miserysig (talk) 19:14, 30 January 2009 (EST)
I still don't see Life Sheath too often tbh...--IkimonoNeeds more ParagonMonk-Paragon-icon 21:05, 30 January 2009 (EST)
Life sheath fucks over PS when used by a good monk. Its only really seen in RA and low-level PvP, where high-end PvP cant spare the elite. And ench removal counters GG, ench removal is way more common. :/ Jebuspachi-1-1.jpgMcPachirisu 22:18, 30 January 2009 (EST)
i find GG assassins slightly more annoying as a ranger as most PS assassins tend to have pressed 1 (or whatever location their PS is on their skill bar) while they run towards me. this allows me to just wait and shoot out everyone's favorite dshot and render the guy pretty much useless for a few seconds. maybe thats just because i dont see too many GG assassins though... ƃuoן sı Escape ʇɐɔƃuoן 19:29, 2 February 2009 (EST)
