It’s literally the underpowered version of the BW Volcanic Force talent, and yes i know you have to fully charge it, but still most people use the fully charged flamethrower/flamethrower staff to burn down entire hordes. Devs should remove the 30% more heat generation part of Drakkis Wrath so it can compete against the BW version it.
As for the drakefire pistols, i don’t think removing the 30% more heat generation will all of a sudden make them OP, it’ll just be another viable build.
Drakki Wrath is far from being a bad talent tbh. I can’t imagine running it over anything else when I’m playing Drakefire weapons. Despite the heat generation penalty, the power boost it gives is a huge contribution to the aoe nature of both Drakefire weapons - the pacemaking and control of Pistols, and control/horde-clear of Drakegun.
It’s basically mandatory for flamethrower, the 30% + Barrage is required to get it up to a damage level that lets you use it in bursts, which is essential to using flamer without hindering your team. It’s not that great a talent though, that’s the only build I use it for.
