Play Dark Omens on cataclysm with a slayer. I dare you, I double dare you, I double DOGGY dare you. Seriously though, It’s one thing to read suggestions and hear what everyone’s frustrated with. It’s another thing entirely to experience it for yourself. I think Dark Omens w/ slayer would give you an idea of how unbalanced the game is right now.
Few problems with Dark Omens (and legend + in general)
Class imbalance. I could write an entire page on this but i’ll keep it short. Zealot outperforms Slayer at everything, Footknight is only good for banner breaking on higher difficulties. BH and Huntsman see no play in QP (not familiar with these classes, won’t comment on why). Temp health on kill is the only option for temp health unless you’re going a niche stagger build (2h hammer or shield). Certain classes do everything well (Shade w/ hagbane, Zealot w/ anything) whereas others do one thing well and suck at everything else (slayer).
Beastmen deal too much damage. High damage on it’s own isn’t a big problem. When combined with fast attacks, insane range, and stagger resistance well… it’s a pretty big problem.
Banners, banners, banners… and more banners. Banners on their own are fine. One banner and a horde isn’t that bad. Two banners, a horde, and literally any special spawns (they spawn in groups) is unfair. The strategy for dealing with banners is to either run to a better location, or charge in and break it ASAP. If you can’t do either of those you’re forced to fight a super tanky beastman horde. As if they weren’t bad enough already.
I know, I know. There are videos of people soloing cataclysm with bots, I understand even with all these problems it’s still “doable.” However, the average legend player isn’t that skilled. The majority of players aren’t that skilled, and a large portion of the game feels more like a chore than a fun experience. So devs, not the people who talk to the devs, but the devs themselves. I implore you to play Dark Omens w/ slayer on cata. If you can’t complete cata, try legend. Then try it again with Zealot. That should sum up the overall problems with the game right now.
