The non-jousting dailies aren't too bad as far as dailies go. The jousting dailies at the Citadel can be done in a group, so that makes them a bit easier. But the one-on-one jousting ones really do suck.When I first attempted the jousting daily, it infuriated me to the point of logging out of the game. I was just SO pissed-off that I had to take a break. Seriously.However, with experimentation, I have found a technique for the jousting that does seem to work about 90% of the time....1) before you start the joust, build up your shield to 32) talk to the guy to start the jousting and immediately start spamming your charge button3) as soon as you charge your opponent, move until your are right on top of him, and switch to spamming your lance4) when he tries to get away from you, start spamming your shield breaker until it launches, then IMMEDIATELY run toward him so that he doesn't charge you5) stack on him again and resume the lance spam6) look at the cooldown counter on your shields and refresh if necessary7) goto 4 until doneThe basic idea is to try to out damage him in melee range. The only way to do this is to get that first charge out of the gate before he has his shields up, then nail him with the occasional shield breaker. As long as you always have his health slightly lower than yours and you always keep your three shields up, you can just trade lance blows in melee range until he dies. When you get a successful shield breaker, you'll be able to get in a few melee blows that do more damage to him before he gets his shield back up.The shield breaker launch is tricky because you have to hit it then immediately run towards him so that he doesn't charge you back. You can't wait to see if it hits him. By then, it's too late and he'll charge. About 50% of the time, I hit the button and run, but it doesn't launch. I'm guessing it's lag.This technique is boring as hell, but it almost always works. The only time it fails is if because of lag, he manages to get a few charges in on you or you forget to refresh your shields....Krickhttp://www.tankadin.com
