Flauvious.6195 Posted October 19, 2017 Share Posted October 19, 2017 I've been trying to make a sw/sw power rev build work for a bit now, and it's been a struggle. Sword 4 cost 20 energy, 10 for initial and 10 for the following strike, second cast should be free to fall in line with energy costs of other stronger weapons. With mace/axe condi build, mace 2 and 3 are 5 energy, axe 4 and 5 are both 10. Sword 2 and 3 are 5 and a whopping 15, and sword 4 and 5 are 20 and 15. This is crazy considering all the mace axe skills are ranged and easier to land. Hammer 2 and 3 are also 5, with 4 and 5 being 10 and 15. Coupled with the fact that assassin skills are the most costly, and you have no resistance, condi cleanse, or meaningful healing, I don't understand why sword skills have to be so expensive. Offhand sword is basically a pvp only weapon and it even sucks at that. I feel like a good place to start would be removing the cost of the second cast on sword 4. It feels so clunky when you press it for an emergency block, and then you sit their blocking like a chump spamming your 4 key while nothing happens because you dont have 10 energy. Also increasing the speed of the inital little hop on sword 3. You go from this fast moving whirl of blades to a slow motion little jump and spin in the air before initiating sword 3. So many times have I died mid hop. All you have are your evades and block to survive, which is fine, it makes for an exciting high risk reward gameplay, but the reward just doesn't seem to match the risk. I run a hammer as my second weapon, intended just to be there to deal with necros sitting on points and to still deal damage while my health is to low to go in melee. My success in games seems to be directly correlated to how much time I spend sitting back throwing hammers vs trying to put fools to the sword. Why would I burn a 35 energy engage, another 15 energy sword skill and a few autos before dying when I can just switch to glint, turn on furry, and hurl hammers from the saftey of 1200 range? Hell, If someone comes near me I can switch to assassin and actually use the 30 energy disengage because hammer skills costs nothing. By the time each skill ends you've already regened the energy spent on it lol. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
