It’s actually the other way around. CoM+Vanish was a huge DPS boost to shade and it completely trivialized the game since you could remain in a quasi-permanent invis state. Granted I haven’t played shade at all since the latest patch, but I imagine there’s a reason why the change was made and why she got more or less community-banned from events for that specific build.
Is it really a shaft when he gets guaranteed crits that insta-kill on headshots? Ever seen a WHC do the window-wiper maneuver with the rapier in front of a skaven patrol and they all just flop dead?
Which is trivial to do. You can just chuck projectiles at the sky when needed. And it’s not like you can’t vent if you absolutely have to cast at something. Once you crank the difficulty high enough and you are always surrounded by enemies, you’ll always have a pool of temp health to use as mana.
Not really.Her most aggressive build relies on stacking crit chance and attack speed via her dash, her dodges and push-attacks which are highly convenient on plenty of her weapons. This adds up to much more killing power than wraith walk with invis or bleed, which are her other dash options. I don’t know why you’d choose the latter outside of memery, when the former can solve all of your problems in this game in a comfortable way.
In the previous post I didn’t mention huntsman simply because I forgot as I don’t play him at all anymore. But iirc he can also boost his crit chance dramatically through headshots. Obviously Merc & Zealot have their own talents which guarantee crits, and while they may look underwhelming on paper, I’ve seen them put to use in very creative ways. Had a Helborg’s Tutelage Merc with a bretsword and a bb get to almost 100K damage in a twins run once.
Not all of the above are necessarily overpowered, but my point remains that crits are a fundamental aspect of the game and some careers have a significantly easier time than others to gain access to them. I don’t see Doomsight as a problem in and of itself. I just think it should be capped so it doesn’t rocket to infinity while the elf is sleeping.
