I don’t know if someone already said something about that (i read a part of all topics but they are a tone of theme so sorry if it was already said) but the Dwarf class Slayer got a pretty huge change between the beta and the release. I just unlocked it hence my reaction time.
The Slayer as in the beta had those feats and quirks: No ranged weapon, Fast recharging active skill, and a very interesting passive witch was: When you hit an enemy you gain a stack of [i don’t remember the exact name] “fury” to the maximum of 3. For each you gained a boost of attack speed. It was great because you could use your active competence to jump into a horde of enemies and then time your dodge right and begin to kill a lot of small enemies. On boss it was not bad either even if less effective because of the comparatively low damage of melee attacks. You would be downed quite a few time in veteran but you could play it. in champ you would need serious stuff and a good team (as … always i guess) but it was playable. But Now… The “Fury” is a damage buff, or if you don’t hit fast with a no ranged weapon character well… You are just useless. The tiny minions will just hit between you’r first a second strike or second and third and will interrupt you ,opening you to a swarm of hit, then the dodge is not very helpful because you simply can’t evade 30 rats at the same time. So you have to block, but you can’t block much making your active ability a retreat one not an attack one anymore. And here you have it: the slayer is just no more useful. Why take this when you can have a tank that don’t take damage every 20 sec that have fat stamina and even if lower damage, still ranged weapons. It’s sad because its the main reason i bought the second one. I loved the first but grinding was not fun in the first. When playing the beta, seeing the slayer [Gortrek being my favorite character in warhammer (he’s a slayer)] i was very excited about this… at last a fun way to slaughter your way… But then i got the slayer today … and … i’m sad. I don’t know if the slayer was “too powerful” in the beta or what but i wonder if other player feel the same way than i do: disappointed.
Sorry for the long post and have a nice day.
