After playing this hero for a bit, I just can’t help but feel certain talents are out of place on some careers, and just lock you in to a certain play style, which limits my personal enjoyment.
Personally, I think the Lingering and Famished Flames synergy was fantastic and a lot of fun, unfortunately those days will not return, but that doesn’t mean Sienna shouldn’t get a bit of an upgrade.
- Unchained: Give her the talents THP on Kill, Smiter, and include Wildfire’s attributes to Living Bomb as basekit, and instead rework Wildfire to apply Famished Flames. I’m not suggesting you take Famished Flames off BW, I mean we take the effect, the bonus to 150% burn damage, and apply it to Wildfire, meaning, an increase to burn damage for the duration of Living Bomb, and possibly double the duration burning of targets.
Reason is that Unchained is a powerful melee class with an somewhat underwhelming ult that is mostly used as an emergency vent. My hope is that with these changes, Living Bomb on it’s own will be more than just an emergency vent, and with the new Wildfire talent, Unchained is granted an offensive talent.
Pyro: Give her Assassin, THP on crit/headshot
She is the Sienna’s most crit focused career, and it’s surprising to me she does not have these talents available to her. For comparison the Shade has Khaine’s Thirst, Black Vigour, Smiter, and Assassin to choose from, and I believe the Pyro should have the same options, even if she may not necessarily need it, I think it would be complimentary to her career that is designed around crits, and for that reason, should have it.
Battle Wizard: Make Volcanic Force a passive on BW
BW has great T2 choices, it’s true, but she lacks the DPS of Pyro and toughness of Unchained.
Tranquility is a nice passive to have, but it isn’t as interesting as Pyro’s critical mass, or Unchained’s Unstable Strength. Tranquility should be the talent and Volcanic Force be the passive.
Also, lingering flames needs a rework, it was great on famished flames but that combo is no longer possible, so it just seems “meh” now.
P.S Slightly off subject here, but should a Fatshark dev reads this, any chance we could get a young Sienna skin? I’d buy that.
Edit: For any late readers, there have been a lot of edits inspired by the feedback and criticisms from the comments, so what you’re reading is very different to the first draft.
