Warclaw Lance vs Aegis

Virdo.1540Virdo.1540 Member ✭✭✭✭

We know its pretty crappy if you are trying to unmount someone, and its getting blocked by its passive Aegis-Generation.

So how about making it unblockable? An easy fix. Its not doing much damage, so it only will have impact on the Aegis-Mounts.

  • While I support the idea, I think it's unlikely to happen. We've had the same issue with passive Last Stand preventing gliding warriors from being shot down for years. At least with gliding guardians, you just had to hit them once with a regular shot to remove Aegis before shooting them down.

    DH buddy of mine last night didnt realize his aegis protects him from the first lance lol. We tested it vs another (enemy) and he then found out

    Will the Aegis stay after getting hit by the lance?
    Seems kinda silly that this would give an unfair advantage vs. Guardians if it breaks the Aegis.

    What unfair advantage? It's supposed to block one attack, but the attack is unlockable. I don't see any problem.

    One shotting with maul has existed since the launch of warclaw

    if its unblockable it wont trigger aegis, because its not being blocked.

    Heralds doesnt have their active facets too, while being on the mount. So why let the guards have their aegis?

    Good idea, but I suspect it'll take Anet aegis to implement this change.

    edit- Yes, I know its pronounced e-jiz, just enjoy the crappy wordplay...

    Actually either pronunciation works:

    You're good at what you do, Cal. If only you had the power to delete the mount from the game entirely :)

    Im glad we making one class nerfed instead of fixing balancing problems. You little snow flakes are genius. Can we have 3 wash rooms instead of two? What of someone wasn't comfortable being xx or xy?

  • Jugglemonkey.8741Jugglemonkey.8741 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Given dura runes proc boons when hit while mounted, it might be worth seeing whether earth runes give you the magnetic aura when hit too. Unblockable lance would fix both problems tho, thanks to Cal for letting us know that's in the works :)

    Thats an absolutely ridiculous statement just for the sake of being ridiculous. This is a fix to something that should not be occuring - ie getting boons on a mount that interfere with mount vs mount combat and give one class specifically a massive advantage that no one else gets. It literally is a balance problem. Calling people snowflakes is highly ironic. Imagine if thieves could stealth when dodging on a mount, or the mesmer got clones? It would be the same thing.

    I mean yeah the eagis shouldnt be there on the mount in the first place...rune/good effects still uphold with the change to unblockable

    It should reset as soon as a player re-mounts.
