I think the fire sword could use some love. But before i make my suggestion on how to change it, i first wanna talk about sienna in general.
When i first saw her three careers with all their passive and active abilitys, i thougt the battle wizard will be ranged focused, the pyromancer a mix between range and melee with focus on elites and unchained a melee monster. But in my opinion as it is right now, all three careers play best when focusing on range (Pyromancer the most because of high crit chance). I was quite disappointed when i played unchained the first time. I didn’t really play her much different then the other two careers. She is more porefull in melee. She is insane tanky and the damage buff on high overcharge is noticable to. Still i mainly use her ranged maybe because of her melee weapon options.
My suggestion on the fire sword should change that.
I think i would be nice if the fire sword would deal more damage the more overcharge you have. On max overcharge (when the bar is red) it should deal a lot of damage even against armored enemys.
Additionaly it should get an alternative attack like the pistol shot on rapier, that creats overcharge. This way you could stay in melee with constantly high overcharge by using the alternative attack from time to time. Downsight would of course be that you are only a few hits away from exploding. This way unchained would change from a tanky ranged/melee career to a melee glasscanon just by using fire sword. I personally would really enjoy the high risk high reward gameplay. Other sienna classes couldn’t use that mechanic as good because of the debuff they get, if they are at high overcharge.
Please share with me your opinions.
