    Yes pls, this is the sort of stuff I love to see. Great for RP or just standing around looking cool. More stuff like this with weapons, or even with other stuff maybe, like holding a fireball or something.

    More stuff like this please :3

    Despite everyone Feedback on PTS Thread, they seem to be adamant about changing it
    I simple never gonna use Fair Game since in Boss fights its useless, even if I spend the majority of my time Soloing QWZ Dailies ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Absolutely useless trigger. Only helpful if you're soloing trash mobs. Useless on a team or on bosses.

    What in the world makes you think this is a good idea, Kais? You KNOW the whole membership loathes "on kill" procs. Another power hardly anyone's going to take except by mistake. You might as well have not bothered.

    Bit early yet for that. It's during anniversary event which isn't until September. Next annual event should be the Patriot one.

    Lately Defender's Training event tends to happen after a 2xXP week

    Kind of surprised that the archery utility mod hasn't yet been added to the scr/gcr vendor? You'd think it would be there to go along with the revamp. Or, failing that, that it would at least be re-released in a key pack.

    Where is the bleeds ( besides Caltrops) Forget arrows. when I prick a finger with a Thumb Tack I bleed. Get hit by 20 arrows. No bleeding. Are all arrow heads rubber tipped because a few Villains cried when they got hit by a flying stick?
  • jaazaniah1jaazaniah1 Posts: 4,704 Arc User
    You don't bleed from most bullets/shrapnel, many blades or from big heavy axes either.

    Wait a minute! Is this actually a Tribute to BERSERK? It all makes sense now 😢

    For anyone who is not aware the Creator of the most well known manga BERSERK, Kentaro Miura, passed away early this month, leaving his legacy behind

    Final Fantasy 14 players paid tribute to him while standing in lines of heroic poses while in dark armours similar to the one the protagonist wears and having campfires

    No no no no no you have crossed the line CO. Im not happy that the aesthetic on Storm of Arrows were changed to ordinary ol plain ol dry wooden arrows. Before I had it the hollow green like in my quiver. Please turn the power FX back to the old plamatic skin. My heart can't take this, I just can't look at it now.

    Also Snap Shot says combo but looks pretty static to me. Desperate Shot could look more flexible to. Rick and Morty anyone?

    As a player when big sweeping changes are made to hit a new target we players can make inferences of what you intend the set to do but we also are looking for ways it'll be 'meta' for freedoms.

    Things I like from this update:

    1) Standardized Debuff Length - love standardized things. Does this also mean the slot for debuffs is standardized (also for buff removal/Debuff removal a la Celestial Cleansing)

    2) Single Damage type debuffs. Forcing players to choose the Damage they want to be most used for offense is a good change that will allow for diverse resistances in enemy choice.

    3) Damage standardization overall. I'll trust the parsers to double check but it seems welcome.

    4) Archery feels like it belongs with the Technology Tree now. But it brings other parts of Tech into real doubt. I hope it still feels run and gun to be players even with some new stationary casts.

    - -

    Some missed opportunities that I hope are coming:

    1) Debuff and CC gameplay is still a Zero Sum mechanic. Allowing archers so many CC powers means ultimately all other CC players are currently going to have worse overall performance as past of a team. Additionally CC is not calculated in Open Missions (For those who like first place performance).

    2) INT as a stat has been pretty gutted since COs launch. It was once the "Pets Stat" but pet gameplay has Changed Drastically. I would like to see some of the newer mechanics like Charge Time and some of the older mechanics like Proximity to target for efficacy to really play in the final calculated build. I need to re-check maths but DoTs (Multi-Hit from other games) still does not calculate for all the hits but only the first.

    3) Threat values to all of these things is not really included. As CCer I've "FELT" much more targeted by NPCs but there's no way for me to verify that CC powers are now receiving more Threat per second. (Which I do think would be a good change). Players overall have no UI to watch their threat during combat.

    Some general questions about this first redesign framework

    1) Shouldn't Caltrops be a destructible pet like other Gadget pets? Maybe same with Healing Arrow? I mean if I'm Still Carrying around a Prototype Brain bomb with no clue what it's doing there besides making Particle mine look good. Or does this change note that pets overall are being moved to more of a device/trap gameplay (pets that aren't targetable or destructible)

    2) Is click activating self heals being standardized? Fair Game, BCR, and Endorphin Rush seem to get it but should we look for the other self-heal powers attached to forms and passive to change too (Looking Squarely at Medical Nanites.. aka the sentinel aura)

    3) Are 100ft Range powers going to have energy updates to standardize with what Telepathy and Archery can do with their high INT values? (Increased energy costs for longer range powers)

    Suggestion:. I Love the Weapon Display! What are the chances we make these AURAs and not devices?

    edited May 2021
    I thought I woudn't like the archery revamp but I tried it out and it's kinda fun, my only issues are the combo animations (which you said you will add and I'm excited for if they are proper), Explosive arrow being basically useless, and the fact that the rotation feels like a munitions copy cat.

    Something that would be fun is if the combo worked like Ranged Telekinesis, or like Reaper's Embrace where you apply effects like bleeds for a burst (with moderate damage ofc since ranged). maybe use explosive arrow for that, who knows.

    I did try finish him adv with focused shot and it was fun to have another route but it's not worth the effort/time lost doing the whole thing, or not as satisfying I guess. Maybe a FX or Sound change to the focused shot when it lands on enemies could help.

    Other than that it's pretty solid, desperation shot and the Medical Arrow rune heal are awesome.

    Focused shot stacking up like that is amazing and the damage is nice.

    Still not pleased about the physical debuffs but oh well.

    Side note: The weapon display is AMAZING <3

    please consider having this idle pose for other weapon types as well.

    I think it's pretty obvious that the iniquity change is eventually going to be intentional, it just keeps getting "accidentally" released on Live. I imagine it will happen for real once some other adjustments come to support as a whole.

    Uhhh... focused shot damage is super low. I don't remember if this got accidentally changed in one of the PTS patches (since to my memory, the damage was good), but right now on "perfect conditions" (not getting hit and already on 3 stacks) it's doing about same damage as/lower damage than Incinerate, Soul Beam, Rapid Shots(w/ adv), Assault Rifle, Two Gun mojo and such on.


    Unless I'm doing something wrong, this shouldn't be the case. Even if the buff didn't expire on getting hit, the damage is currently too low.

    Well, this kills a few of my builds. Once again, fixing something that isn't broken. I'm all for new powers in existing powersets, but this wasn't exactly an OP ability, it was mainly single target with a small AOE if something happened to be close. It was the perfect power for a character that just needed one ranged ability that was more of a "techno archer" than an archer; but once again, I'm losing something for no real reason other than the devs don't understand the value of an existing power. Well it is your game, I just hope you never succeed in "fixing" my desire to play.
