I have seen Players thinking that BH needs Inspired Shot (crit reset on melee kill) back, as it made his weaker range weapons viable on him.
I just learned, that a long time ago BH apparantly even had it as a passive trait.
It was removed because of its synergy with Prize Bounty. (Basically you never had to reload, as your on demand critshot didn’t consume ammo. So you could run Hunter on top of not worrying about ammo or reloading at all)
Personally I think FS partially removed the crit reset, because they added melee kill reload, where nearly the same problem would reappear again.
(On demand crit without having to reload. No infinite ammo, but you gain ammo again when you have none left)
I have been thinking of various ways how crit reset could be added again wothout running into that problem.
Besides rearranging half his talent, I have come up with only one solution:
1.) re-add Inspired Shot as a passive trait
2.a) Prize Bounty: Shots affected by Blessed Shots restore 5% ammunition.
(basically scrounger as a talent: 2 ammo for Crossbow/BoP and 3 ammo for RP/Volley Crossbow)
2.b) Prize Bounty: Shots affected by Blessed Shots consume no ammunition, but Inspired Shots can no longer reset the Cooldown of Blessed Shot.
3.) Melee kill reload gets reworked: „Inspired Shot no longer resets the Cooldown of Blessed shots, but instead reloads one ammunition on a Melee kill. Killing an elite while out of ammunition restores 20% of max ammunition.“
These three changes would give us back inspired shot, while preventing any abusive combos and leaving the rest of the skilltree intakt.
Otherwise I can only see the option that FS puts Melee kill reload, Inspired Shot, and Prize Bounty in the same row to get Inspired Shot back.
I sometimes post quite radical Ideas, so in addition to your comments I would like to do a poll this time for better feedback:
- I want Inspired Shot back as a talent
- I want Inspired Shot back as a passive trait with these changes (option 2a)
- I want Inspired Shot back as a passive trait with these changes (option 2b)
- I want Inspired Shot back, but disagree with these changes
- I don‘t want Inspired Shot back
- I don‘t care either way
