It has this pin-point accurate push-stab that deals tremendous AP damage and you can keep it indefinitely on hold, has great mobility, good cleave and lets you just mow through infantry. Oh and push-stab is also great and has higher crit chance to boot.
The only thing it doesn’t thrash are the bosses, but guess what - I just shoot them with longbow for good and safe damage.
So I absolutely love it.
? saltz can just pick himself some headshot trait for his ranged weapon then he can shoot as freely as kerillian no
No. Unless you land headshots all the time, and even then every miss means -1 ammo you are not likely to get back, and HS that you land is just 0 ammo lost/gained unless you get 2 during a horde, and for such crap ammo sustain you’re losing +25% power from hunter. IMO not worth it.
The only way he truely gets ammo sustain is with scrounger indeed. And that’s fun, but it limits his overal output.
Kerilian with longbow can just go hunter/barrage and still have this awesome ammo regen - and she can also get ammo on ult if one really likes to spam.
Keris ult can mow down a few berserkers at a time too, but yeah, I like BH’s better, but once again - she can just shoot as much as she wants, each longbow arrow having good damage and cleave and up her damage with traits. Saltz can never have both. Yes, he can hit harder with single shots, but that’s it. He absolutely can’t match Keri’s overal output.
Kerilian doesn’t win in 1 shot vs 1 shot competition. But she absolutely wins in a longer timeframe. Oh and she can self-heal herself back to 50%, just in case. And gets HP on cleave, which synergizes with 2h sword so damn GOOD.
EDIT: the thing is, I can’t, for the love of Sigmar, be more effective than other classes as BH, I’m simply “on par” in good case scenario. As Kerilian? I’ve never played this class (maybe when I was at below 100 hours I made a few veteran runs?), on my 2nd attempt decided to go legend and finished a run with really good results.
