skystorm.9280 Posted April 15, 2018 Share Posted April 15, 2018 I feel like if Bear stance got a ~5 second cool down it would help a lot due to the ever increasing presence and application of condi meta that has been around for years now. I keep looking at this skill and really only find its use when zerging and running it with LotP. If it were to have a shorter CD, combine that with Leader of the Pack, then it really allows you not only take care of condi's at a respectable rate but also have your heal itself readily available earlier as well. I disagree when people argue saying 'well then it would have the same CD as a Survival Troll Unguent and be arguably better,' however I find that there should be a very strong and fearful thing about going up against a Soulbeast; you have the immortal Firebrands with their hundreds of tomes, the very tanky and powerful, boon-ripping Spellbreakers with their full-counter, the very scary condi-chucking Scourges with barrier and shades, the hard hitting holosmith's both at range and melee going in holomode, mirages....., and the one shot elusive Deadeyes with that ominous mark hanging above your head. The heals current purpose is to deal with Condition damage and some might say well if you want it to always be up to deal with condi's then that's a little OP - the heal does do a good job with condi's at keeping me alive but when dealing with power builds it really falls short with a 25 second heal.It would be nice to have a very powerful heal or rather some trait that really makes the enemy player go "oh snap!" As of the release of Soulbeast I cant really say that there is anything that makes it really outstanding in the field of WvW - while it is a decent roamer it does not shine in any one particular mode if anything only making it a better version of LB core ranger with unblockable 4 seconds and a tiny bit of boost to damage. These are just my two cents that I felt like sharing - I may be wrong about Bear Stance, but I definetly want to see something outstanding happen to Soulbeast. I hope most feel the same way and are not content with how it currently is. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
