Earth Overload is OP and needs nerf.

Due to recent threads about daggerstorms and rampages packing too much and apparently no counterplay I thought Id shed light on another skill..

Earth Overload...
This skill packs way too much, it has:

  • Cripple
  • Immobilize
  • direct damage
  • bleed stacks
  • summons dust storm
  • applies magnetic aura
  • applies stability
  • applies protection
  • removes conditions
  • applies regen
  • applies vigor
  • applies swiftness
  • applies fury
  • increases crit damage
  • heals the user
  • breaks stun
  • blast finisher

Obviously in light of daggerstorm and rampage threads and various comments, this one skill must be broken too right?

😲

Not to brag, but I put together a puzzle in 4 days and the box said 2-4 years.

    Oh should point out that its a playful stab at our community complaining about mundane kitten instead of Swiss delivery and other things that are actually important.

    What's the thing thieves say to defend broken stuff? "Yes, it is broken but we're so weak we need this skill to stay broken".
    Also lul at thieves pretending to be in a worse spot than ele.

    The degenerate

    No, this only works if you show a cropped screenshot of the skill you complain about dealing more than 5k damage.

    Bite me.

    Nah, thats a childish reaction to me pointing out how overloaded daggerstorm. All he could say "dodge block reflect invul".
    Anet should return PoF release state back and tell everyone "just dodge it,block invul"

    Now it only they had a trait giving them a whopping 17% rng to use skill again so we could also throw the ability to constantly spam it twice off one cooldown at will,along with our ability to infinitely skill spam due to having infinite ini and to top it off the infinite stealth and tele that thieves can do disregarding resource cost as seems to be said by most non thief players to try and defend their case that thiefs op lmao

    I don’t notice a big impact of ele since scrap is back so there is always a 1v1 class in your team to counter the ele. I would love to see some work on staff support if ele was ever to be looked at.

    They should get attack chains and faster auto attacks. Other skills are mostly fine imo.

    Careful what you wish for, Anet might think you are serious and thus not restrain themselves, and once again give eles the boot treatment.

    After seeing what they did to thief last patch I wouldn't honestly put it past the balance team to give more un deserved nerfs to ele's

  • Jski.6180Jski.6180 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Well they for sure though fire overload was op as the fire aura on it realy fire aura over all is not counting as an aura cutting its effect as a class by a lot. Week and counting at this point an no word.

    See ELE forms and you will get my views.

    Earth overload is the least of most peoples worries in terms of balance

    They'll get round to nerfing that, first they have to nerf MH dagger after the OP changes to it
