I’ll explain it as clearly as possible so I won’t be misunderstood.
I’m the Outcast Engineer, using the 2h hammer, THP on stagger, with the piston power talent, I use a heavy attack on the CW and knock it down, it’s not dead, and yet I only gain 2THP. Is this a joke or is it broken?
I really feel I’ve been mislead by the talents descriptions if it’s working as intended.
-Engineers Resolve: “Staggering enemies with a melee attack grants temporary health. Health gained based on stagger strength.” Key words being “health gained on stagger strength”
-Piston Power: "Every 15 seconds Bardin gains a buff that grants immense Stagger to his next charged attack. "
If THP on stagger is gained based on stagger strength and piston power grants “an immense stagger” then why the hell is the THP return so poor? This talent has to be busted. From what I heard else where, THP is gained based on how many you stagger? But you gain nothing on kill or if someone staggers them first? What?! I was under the impression that strong stagger builds would grant you more THP when you stagger enemies, but it turns out that what you’re supposed to do is bring a shield and spam shove to gain THP by staggering as many enemies as you can? So it’s basically a weird/broken version of THP on cleave then?
Worst of all when I ask for details on how this talent actually works, and what it’s values are, no one actually knows. I never liked THP on stagger before, but now I just hate it, it sounds so stupid. I’d much rather have the choice between THP on kill or on cleave, I at least know how these talents work and they do work, they’re reliable.
