Condi damage needs buff

shortbow or torch or dagger need to be more reliable - either longer condition duration or bigger bleed count on some attacks in the chain (dagger)
I'd further appreciate if bleeding did more damage through the trait hidden barbs (damage increase by 50 % not only 33%). Also 33% hit chance on crit for bleeding (sharpened edges) is just too weak for a trait, also make it 50%.

    This guy ^ yes.

    Especially that sharpened edges change!

    A big problem is ranger has relatively poor reapplication for condi dmg that really does dmg. Condi clear has had a big power creep with many skills curing condis that didn't before or curing more condis than before or both... things like "shake It off", signet of midnight traited, jaunt, etc. These skills simply didn't exist before like they do now.

    I can burn your dodges and finally land that split blade for 5 bleeds... but can't cover it anymore, especially with axe 3 condi durations nerfed. I can throw bonfire down and you can laugh at it because burning got reworked and torch didn't get touched.

  • Yeah you could also give us more cover conditions, like add cripple to sharpened edge if u wanna leave it at 33 %

    Condi damage in general needs to be buffed, outside of a few raid bosses it's globally "bad" in pve.

  • Ok just don't buff it in pvp. We dont need a return of the condi meta lol.

    As opposed to huge power burst everywhere + scourge still hanging in there?

    Ranger front/back requirements to achieve not totally awful condi damage needs to go. MH dagger needs to be faster. Shortbow in general needs so, so much love, it's just...bad. Seriously spam the AA on a golem for a bit and compare the dmg to any power build.
