Gemini Jester School (Destiny)

I know you like Gemini Jesters, but I've never been able to make them work for me.

I'm not actually suggesting them for the purposes of helping out with your bounty (the "forget it" advice is probably for the best), but here's how I use them if you ever want to give them a try:

I make use of Gemini Jesters in 3 basic scenarios:
1. Harassment through walls - get close enough to the position the other team is holding, and constantly dodge. It will piss them off and make them unable to radar watch for a few moments, improving the chances that a push by you or your team will be successful.

2. While you are in a fight - dodge in the middle of a fight to disorient your opponent. This is pretty self-explanatory, but the nuances of it actually helping you turn the tables are the key. Doing it during a wide-open fight will probably not help, but doing it when you are playing ring-around-the-rosie or pop-a-shot opens your options for a sneaky move considerably.

3. While your ally is fighting an opponent - If you aren't in a position to team shoot, but are near enough, dodge to disorient the opponent. I actually find this to be the most effective use, as it will disorient the enemy while your ally can continue shooting as normal, very frequently winning the battle for your team, or at worst letting you clean up the opponent for a trade. A great way to stat pad as well.

Pair with bottom tree Nightstalker smoke bombs or Revenant Stasis with the "slow-on-dodge" ability for full-on dark side PvP builds. But it works for all subclasses so you can switch as needed for bounties or whatever. It's also more effective than you'd think in PvE if you are running top tree Arcstrider for a dodge-disorient-melee combo (but it might not be that competitive with Liar's Handshake).
