Before writing thread, I super enjoyed to use MnS & HnS.
Before BBB, MnS & HnS has 3 kinds of light attacks which have high stagger cleave and is good for clearing horde and berserkers by using combo (push attack -> L2 - > L3 repeat). With this combo, without attack speed option and getting damage from enemies, player can handle horde and berserkers easily. It works and it still good and power in BBB too.
And those are not good at killing AR type but have combo to kill it (push attack -> H1 -> H2). But it can damage and kill AR type with super stagger. Also with this combo it can handle lots of elites. Because H1 is shield bash and have super stagger power.
After BBB patch 4.
Light attack 3 now has single target armour piercing damage profile. Same as push attack.
Push attack now chains into light attack 3.
For AR piercing dmg, dev added it to 3rd light attack and changed chain attack order.
In my opinion, this makes player who is using MnS & HnS get more in dangerous than before.
No more (push attack -> L2 -> L3 repeat) combo is not allowed. After BBB patch 4, this combo is replaced with (push attack -> L3) combo. So, this patch removes good advantage of one of MnS & HnS for handling horde and berserkers.
No more (push attack -> H1 -> H2) combo also is not allowed. After BBB patch 4, this combo is replaced with (push attack -> H2) combo.
So my question is, is it nerf MnS & HnS to low pick-rate ? Or buff MnS & HnS to get more pick-rate ?
I’m so wondering, why MnS & HnS has to be almost same attack motion as Sword and Shield. Before BBB patch 4, MnS & HnS has different charming point. For now, I don’t know why I should use this weapon.
