Thornwolf.9721 Posted August 16, 2022 Share Posted August 16, 2022 Hey there, I'm sure ya'll remember me or those of you who do are likely rolling their eyes and going "Well I thought we finally got rid of him". But After an extended break from the game (Since the launch of EoD) I've come back because I honestly missed my rev. That being said I've kind of played other games and found that what it was I was missing is no longer here on the class really; Or at least the class I recall is not here and I think having read many of the threads here ... we're all kind of feeling it? I've seen people who are adamantly sure the game is fine, all of us who have issues are bad and clearly know nothing about our class of choice... now singing the tune many of those I used to play with and myself were singing? So rather then flaming anyone I kind of want us, the revenant community or what is left of it to come together and just put the things we miss into a feedback thread. (Note this is not just for, hey this would've been cool but is more for aspects of the class pieces we've lost.) As the author of the post I'll start and give some of mine. I miss empty vessel. When this thing was in the game we were still hard to pin down; We became one of the best melee characters in the game because we could dive into a team fight and still maintain momentum. It felt cool and we felt empowered by the legends we were channeling; As if the mists surging through us removed anything keeping us locked in place which was nice because honestly a ton of the legends even now kind of suck. (I've never really been a condi rev, power was always my jam.) I miss staff, the way staff used to be. The weapon feels bad and has only seemingly grown to feel worse which is not the best feeling. Especially when it is pivotal in anything non-renegade related for our defensive weapon. I miss hammer. Whatever this hunk of metal on a stick is... it feels bad. Despite not really playing condi rev, I do miss old mallyx and his immunity to condition damage/redistribution of said condition damage. I feel like it was unique and overtime he has just kind of lost what made him cool. And finally... I miss the original version of sword off-hand which had a block, and teleport/pull which came with the original variation of revenant. I loved teleporting in and striking someone; Only to yoink them through the mists and finish them. Or blocking a huge burst only to turn around and strike them with shackling wave. I miss the duelist feeling of power revenant.. now we feel like a discount warrior/thief but with the tricks of neither. I know people will likely disagree; Which is fine. It's impossible for human beings to really agree on anything but these are the bits that I Feel helped contribute to the state rev is in now and why it doesn't feel nearly as impactful or fun. I miss it's gameplay; I love the class. But I feel like it's a shell of it's former self and I Feel that the class overall has suffered a ton since PoF because of both ren and now vin so many un-nessacary changes have been made. The sigil swap proc was removed due to vin, and many many more changes were made because of ren (We lost empty vessel due to ren, as it had been left in the game all the way up until its minor tweaks began which made it what it is. But it itself wasn't affected.. only herald and core suffered the loss.) paired with condition removal that is limited in a condi-dominated game, and costly defensive utilities and weapon skills utilizing a resource that arena-net seems to lack the faintest understanding of... we're in a situation where they don't play or understand the class. It makes it hard to be excited for the future, or for any change they make due to knowing full well it won't be tested and it won't be made for ":fun" and rather because revenant isn't and likely will never be one of the "beloved baby classes". Post your thoughts below, and thank you fellow mist-walkers for coming to talk with me. As well reading my thoughts. ~ May your steps be relentless. 9 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
