Miki.3862 Posted May 13, 2018 Share Posted May 13, 2018 Okay so, I get it - Weaver is the new kid on the block and most everyone aiming for Meta builds in content is running it but I have to say I genuinely hate the Weaver Staff DPS builds that are Meta for raids and such, they're really quite tedious and just don't feel fun at all.Now that's subjective so I'll get to the point, I've loved D/D Tempest since the launch of HoT both in PvE and PvP, it's fast and fun to play but also gives that good punch of damage to make it feel powerful enough to kill most anything solo if you can keep yourself up, which is half the fun of the build frankly.So I have to ask, why did this really trash-talked and hated build that is definitely effective in the hands of the right player get it's damage reduced by 10% with the Tempest Defense nerf? this feels so completely unnecessary and just a further push to kill off anybody playing a Tempest that's not a healer in PvP and just a kick in the teeth for those playing the same builds in PvE - 20% Damage against disabled foes is unacceptable but the ludicrously powerful abilities of the Firebrand are perfectly fine? Seriously?Shouldn't there be a focus on keeping other builds and weapons more viable for all aspects of the game? I'm aware true balance is not really possible and I don't expect as such but a nerf of any sort to D/D Tempest, which most serious players will laugh off stage, is just so strange to me.To clarify, I'm going to add that this is primarily a problem with PvP rather than PvE - and that yes, I am aware a Weaver can run it but it's a shame to see it nerfed in PvP as well as it'll likely effect Tempest builds harder than Weavers.(P.s I love playing Firebrand by the way but that doesn't change how massively str0g it is at a base)(PP.s Removed some shoddy theory and added some clarification) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
