Lan Deathrider.5910 Posted September 10, 2021 Share Posted September 10, 2021 (edited) @Cal Cohen.2358/ @Cal Cohen.3527, good morning. Seriously, what is up with some of these miniscule modifiers man. It feels like at times warrior has to hunt around for a decent modifier where as some classes can stack multiple +25% damage modifiers and turn a 1.36 scaling modifier skill into a +10k damage skill on a 4s CD (you know who you are *glares*). Now there is also a disconnect here between PvP and WvW with one particular trait, but for the most part you need to step up the damage modifiers (3%->5%, 7%->10%). Problem: Modifiers that are too tiny relative to what warrior needs and relative to current balance Solution: Peak Performance: 3% -> 5%, bonus buff: 7%->10% Warrior's Sprint: 3% -> 5% Burst Mastery: 7%-> 10% (PvE as well here) Leg Specialist: 7% -> 10% Cull the Weak: 7% ->10% PvP only: Warrior's Cunning: Damage versus high HP foes 7% -> 10%, Damage versus foes with Barrier: 10% -> 20%, see discussion below before any freak outs. I really hope you didn't spit out your Vos. Discussion: A large number of warriors feel like that damage is lacking at the moment on our end relative to what other classes are able to put out. Part of that I believe is from damage modifiers that are too low within the traitlines, specifically Peak Performance and Warrior's Sprint. Some also believe that Bursts are too low damage for how telegraphed they are. The first 5 changes above address all those needs. You also note that 4 of those effectively remove the PvE and Competitive mode splits. Those aren't needed everywhere, and indeed there are traits and skills without splits. In these cases these 4 traits in this current meta should not be as low as they are.Now, about that Warrior's Cunning change. There is a problem in PvP with certain specs overloading barrier on themselves and any ally within range. Indeed the PvP forums are filled with calls to nerf that particular spec into the ground. The problem really is that there is no real counter to it. This is the natural counter to it, but only if you let it be. With the current numbers on the trait it cannot effectively counter said spec. Even with the WvW values I sometimes have trouble getting through all the barrier said spec can put out there (to be 100% fair I was on rifle, but I was using Volley and KS and still not depleting the barrier). Coupled with the above recommended changes Warriors of any spec that take Tactics will be able to help their team take down the barrier spamming can.cer spec, you'll solve a balance problem without have to nerf that problem spec. The numbers I suggested also are nowhere near the PvE or WvW values. That said if this buff is inefficient in countering said barrier spamming can.cer spec, then it may be a good idea to buff the numbers a little higher before resulting in nerfing that spec.
