Yeah that’s definitely true. It’s just double shotted which annoys me, it’s so broken. It can melt bosses in seconds, and the same people who use it are the ones complaining the game’s bosses are “too easy”.
Zealot applying his bonus power to ranged attacks on the other hand (while it doesn’t make much sense) is only useful to reach some breakpoints. I don’t mind if they remove this effect, but it’s definitely not what’s breaking the balance of the game atm.
EDIT: Strenght potions increasing ranged damage doesn’t make much sense either (well, maybe for bows)
