What are your thoughts on Boiling point?

I find this a little odd considering we can get fury from just about anywhere and especially when elixir B can permanently maintain fury anyway if you are really going for alchemy self-buffing.

Regardless, there's kinda a problem with self buffing in the game atm considering such traits become the equivilent of taking nothing once you are in a group.

 

The only way I could see it working very well was with juggernaught but then juggernaught does not trigger it on cooldown so you would need the scrapper trait for might to keep it going.

I mean maybe if they just made this where lesser elixir B was but with the might trigger and then it could also trigger purity of purpose but then they would need to figure out something else for the first minor trait.

It may be prudent to expand the boon system, possibly splitting it into major and minor boons to fix this problem, major applying to yourself and minor applying in an area as an example, thus allowing self-boon builds to exist in a party environment properly.

My main issue with this addition is losing our massive self-sustain trait Emergency Elixir.

I find that what they've been removing is any trait that is passively activating without any input from the player. They got rid of Automated Medic Response activating your heal at 25% and now Emergency Elixir, replacing them with traits require you to press a button or do an action.

I think its a good idea. I only wish they would replace them with actually good traits that don't overlap in functionality with other things.

I'm gonna add Reactive Leanses to this. It used to automatically stunbreak+Resistance when you got stunned/blinded. Now it activates on healing skill use, which is fine, I guess...

They recently changed emergency elixir to procc off of elite use so it wasn't passive anymore.

I'm trying to figure out what kind of build would be running this, some kind of flamethrower scrapper maybe?

My build runs this. pure damage/spike build. Utilizes full elixirs.

Just to re-iterate, this trait doesn't seem to correctly sync with juggernaught, which by the timers should provide it every 3 seconds but doesn't (juggernaught also fails to maintain relic of the herald.

It's really bad. It makes A.E.D. much, much worse, and it makes no sense why a gadget focused trait makes the gadget heal worse. I just dislike the whole "activate-on-heal" thing they have going. The "activate-on-elite" thing is less annoying, but still bad.

Edit: On topic, I really like Boiling Point. Along with the other buffs to the Alchemy traitline, Boiling Point makes it more viable to replace Explosives with Alchemy. It gives us more build flexibility, which is always a good thing. The only thing I would change is either reduce the internal CD or increase the duration. 3 second ICD and 4 second duration would make it on par with Short Fuse.

I like the way it is. (only the internal cooldown refreshing is a bit strange, its 1 sec miss out, so not a big deal.) Hopefully they dont break it apart. Finally, I could return to my 'ol flamethrower build + alchemy. Since Rifle gradually nerfed, i peaked back to something more resiliant with stability in my way. The mecha is huge friend for this trip.

'So please Anet dont delete/rework this trait.'
