God.2708 Posted March 24, 2021 Share Posted March 24, 2021 @Cal Cohen.2358 Now there's plenty to be said about Purity of Purpose, but I'm simply going to make a (hopefully) succinct argument about something that is easily and quickly changed (I think) with low boat rocking impact but fair effects.Purity of Purpose converts chill into alacrity.Purity of Purpose converts immobilize into resistance.Resistance and Edit: Alacrity are both corrupted into chill.This cycle, combined with firebrands pulsing resistance fields, the occasional tempest trying to stay relevant with the frost auras they put out, and the inadvertent chill that comes with playing necro, herald, or weaver means scrappers can get their party up to a 20% uptime on alacrity (generally it sits more between 10-15%). This is quite silly for a boon that is both powerful, and not suppose to be available to scrappers.Edit: For comparisons in standard WvW zerging, a good party will have ~80% protection uptime, ~20% resistance uptime, and ~50% vigor uptime.I would advocate for changing it as a simple, easy hotfix nerf to purity of purpose that doesn't have smiters boon ICD nerfs with (probable) complex coding requirements.This makes support tempests modestly more viable as they are no longer buffing enemies that are using scrappers instead.This strengthens support chronos and renegades, both of which are on the cusp of usability as being a source of a rare boon.This weakens the niche scrappers have strangleholded without damaging their 'Purity of Purpose' support role they've carved out.This has no harmful side effects for roaming.If it is cross mode, I'm pretty sure it has zero impact on PvE and PvP.I feel this is a fair request that is approximately at the level of attention WvW is currently being given.
