Yasai.3549 Posted July 4, 2019 Share Posted July 4, 2019 I love Revenant's weapons but I do not exactly feel like certain playstyles tied to certain weapons are a good idea, especially for player build versatility.As of now: Sword is for powerStaff is a mix of support, CC and good chip damageAxe is a Condition focused offhand with decent Power scalingMace is a purely Condition based mainhandHammer is for ranged Power.Ignoring Elite spec weapons, these options are pretty limited regarding build diversity and loadout, which I think isn't healthy for Revenant.I would like to suggest Trait tweaks in the same focus as "Herald of Sorrow" trait which heavily alters how a skill functions.I think the best place to apply these Trait changes are in Retribution and Corruption, to aid in the targeted Traitlines as well.Replenishing DespairCurrently : Incoming conditions provide you a small amount of healing. (useful if Conditions don't do easily 10 times the damage healed)Suggested change : Heal a small amount when inflicting Conditions. (1 second ICD)Allows Axe to be wielded in Mainhand.Mainhand Axe skills : Axe 1 will be an attack chain which inflicts Bleed on first hit, Burning on second hit, and both on third hitAxe 2 will be a forward momentum attack with 450 range. It will hit 5 times and inflict Bleeding. Leap FinisherAxe 3 will be a telegraphed chop with cast time of 1 second. It will deal damage in 170 AoE and inflict a heavy Burn. Spiritual ReckoningCurrently : Gain retaliation when you use an elite skill. (holy cow why is this designed like that)Suggested change : Gain Retaliation when inflicting Weakness.Allows Mace to be wielded in offhand.Offhand Mace skills : Mace 4 will be a projectile which stuns the enemy and inflicts weakness. (Power scaling) Mace 5 will be a Parry skill.On cast, will block attacks for 2 seconds.If a hit has been Blocked during this duration, the player can cast the flip skill to knockback enemies in 200 range, dealing damage.Thanks for reading this far, I hope this stirs up the imagination of Rev players who, like me, would like to see more weapon options and combos on Revenant.
