    I'm ok with Flux Bomb.
    Social Awkwardness needs to be changed/removed tho :p

    We can keep flux bomb if they get rid of hamstrung.

    Actually, if I'm honest, I think instead what ANET should do is restrict certain instabilities from spawning on certain maps, and/or with other instabilities.

    For example, Flux Bomb, Social Awkwardness and Last Laugh are a nasty combo, but it would be far nastier on Cliffside or Swampland than it would on Solid Ocean or Aetherblade.

    Normally I don't mind Last Laugh, but the other night on Swampland.....Oh Em Gee. I don't know if that's the first time I've seen Last Laugh on Swampland or just the first time I noticed it, but the trash was deadlier than the boss in the final fight.

    I think they should make certain instabilities affect the adds. So for instance if you have flux bomb, make it hurt the enemies as well as you. Make last laugh do a knockback on enemies (yes it make pulls more interesting). if you let instabilities also effect the enemies in some way it gets more interesting...and chaotic

    Did they change how flux bomb work? It was completely fine when i used to do fractals.

  • Grogba.6204Grogba.6204 Member ✭✭✭

    Thb I wish they would beef up CMs a bit and remove instabilities from them. It is not about the challenge but more about the wide variance of obnoxiousness.

  • thrag.9740thrag.9740 Member ✭✭✭

    Honestly I'd be happy to see all the instabilities go away. I think randomized content is a bad idea, it leads to unforeseen interactions and the instability system has been reworked so many times at this point that if it had never existed we would probably have a few more fractals in the game. I mean, just think about how after Anet put in the random daily fractals they realized they need to blacklist some of the combinations. It's clear Anet doesn't have a large enough testing team to handle all those combinations.

    Fun fact, this is actually what Anet promised us in the pre-hot era with the launch of hot. The change from t4 fractal system to f100 was suppose to be along with a revamped instability system where instabilities were specialized to the fractal. As was common in that era, Anet over promised (sometimes called a lie), and under delivered.

    Flux bomb can be bad when paired with other instabs and mechanics

    The other day on 100cm, I had the green circle, flux bomb, and a solar bloom. I was taking Social awkwardness damage from us trying to push the blooms in while in the green circle. We got through it fine, but I could see how this would obliterate less experienced players.

    This same combination of circumstances happened to me twice in me fight.

  • Press jump when flux about to go off in S.O. The flux will get disabled if it gets discharged mid air during the levitation, similar to T.O (using the special action key).

    There's already been a leak as to what all the new ones are on Reddit, most of them look like they now offer some sort of positive trade-off in addition to the negative effects for example "Frailty: Players are smaller and have 30% less health, but move 25% faster." It is a leak so take it with a grain of salt, but they seem legit.

    In my opinion quite a few of the new ones appear even more annoying then they used to be. :/

    I won't link the leak pic since i'm not sure about the forum rules on that sort of thing but it's on the front page of the gw2 reddit so it's not hard to find.

    I never had any issues with the instabilities. Some fun stuff, but there are rarely some correlations which suck. But in the end, you can burn down with enough dps and buffs.

    The boons one looks like it will be a real pain. Not a fan of it. Again, Anet really shouldn't create instabilities that penalize you for better play.

    The whole point of a social game is to play with the people you want to play with, not be forced to play with the people you don't.

    Not really. Some of those had been in file for quite a long time.
    Some are existing but modified and others are new.

    It's quite likely that these are real.

  • I like them, Seems fun to play. Last laugh Seems funny. They are not only annoying to deal with, but if dealt properly, they can award u nicely

    Social Awkwardness needs to be changed/removed tho :p

    Are you really though? Think closely. If you have to carry it out and miss both chrono wells because of this the next one will probably drop approx. 60 seconds later, because theres gonna be a mechanic in between preventing you from stacking ;)

    Have you read them? I especially like the new idea for SA. You can now roleplay as grawl in grawl fractal and push teammates down the cliff. Or roleplay as harpy and... cliffside... solid ocean... =)

    Also, I already checked, and not many skills with low cooldown stun long enough for this to be a thing... its just gonna be like current last laugh and nobody will bother with stunning first, because waste of dps.

    I know some exist, Still my statement stands its a fake image,
    Flux bomb affecting enemies? Dodge bird strike to troll? etc etc.

    I especially laughed at 'enemies explode if not stunned' Right in a game mode when breakbars pop every now ant them make us waste CC skills on trash mobs.

    Now imagine Amala with Vengence in Grenth form when someo AOEs all those jagger horros. Boonfest

    That's why it'll be tested by us - the players. Like always in the history of GW2. And when we'll experience a horrible combination of instabilities or an unlovely interaction between a fractal and an instability it'll need a forum or reddit post to have it changed alongside with a statement like this: "Oh yeah, that is maybe a little bit overtuned. (We already thought about that.)"
    In reality they are thrown out like free candy and will only be adjusted slowly afterwards.
    (Just my bet due to longterm experience.)

  • I'm hoping it's fake or "fan-made" too, some of the instabilities sounds awful.

  • Oh great! New handicaps for the same old stale, junk content. Surely this will make fractals fun again...

  • Deepcuts.9740Deepcuts.9740 Member ✭✭✭

    Whoever is in charge of fractals, specially those coming up with these weird "fun" ideas as instabilities, please take a long deserved holiday.
    The longer, the better.
    As a matter of fact, we'll contact you when it's time to come back. Read never

    Just seems like you're afraid of change to me.
    All of this is entirely possible given that instabilities are tied to specific levels. For example the updated Last Laugh all they have to do is make the mobs not instantly die but transition to a relatively small breakbar instead.

    Proper management of cc isnt hard, considering for the longest time 1 or so class could handle the cc just fine.

    Its still tho just an alternative, u can block/dodge/immune the explosion if yiu dont want to waste cc.

    Your statement should be "its prob fake" or "i think its fake" both sidez have about equal credibility at this point (considering anet has had leaks happen a number of times in the past.

    Social definitely needs to go.. this is no longer the berserker stack in a corner meta.. now we have aoes all over the place and add extra aoes from random attacks from instabilities... The least thing the group healer wants is to risk getting agony and have their heals severely ineffective.
