Hi there !
I think I can say I’m a V1 Vet with my 200+ hours played. Mainly with Sienna & Conflagration Staff.
Beam and Bolt never were my thing.
That said, I’d like to give some feedback to help it become a little more uselfull and “competitive”.
I’ll focus on Conflag for now, but I believe there is more to say about the overall perk/boon/trait/whatever enhancement customization.
In V1, we had 3 “traits” on our weapons. Which helped me A LOT with the Conflag, as I could improve its strong points. Those strong points are weak before traits applied.
Conflag misses 2 things from V1 :
-Knockback. It was an awesome tool… for people like me. See, I am terrible bad at aim. What I’m good at is “gain time & plan stuffs”. I thought about it a lot, I’m not playing games like those people that can aim awesomely well. I don’t headshot because I just can’t aim good, despite I’m 33yo and tried all I could in various videogames. I just can’t. This is about some mindset of some sort ^^.
On the other hand, I always thrived in those desperate situations where you HAD to steal time for you and your team, swarmed with rats, elits and an Ogre. While they slain the most part, you give them time to.
V1 allowed me that.
Not all people/players are the same, will play the same, bear that in mind
My 2nd point is : Conflag charged attack had a wilder range. Not that much, but it made a difference. In V2, I often chargeAtk and see rats&northmen caugh in the explosion acting like nothing happened. It DOES explode on their heads, they should feel something, right ?
If you agree or not, thanks for the replies
