While the BBB was an amazing “initiative” to shake things up, I am a bit worried that it’s goals might not be achieved.
A lot of weapon still have a lot of core issues. Those issues might not show on Legend difficulty, but they immediately become apparent on Cataclysm.
Those issues mainly being lack of AP or twisted/subpar movesets.
For example, lets take the elven spear. A fine weapon for Legend. The fact that 2/3 light attacks hit off-mark is extremely frustrating and reeks of… Unwillingness to examine the deeper issues with said weapon. Turning the dmg revert into a baidaid fix.
Same goes for some other weapons that got gutted (Billhook/Xsword/DD), except on the exact careers they were getting abused on. Making those weapons effectively “meh” on the other careers.
I understand Darktide is draining a lot of resources (which was the only reasonable explanation for the slow trickle of content for VT2), but it saddens me to see so little when so much could be done.
This beta could have been the occasion to go wild with tweaks! Alass…
