… When compared to Kerillian? I mean Javellin/Moonfire Bow does everything Sienna does but better and it does not even matter much which Kerillian career we’re talking.
I’m not salty at all, I still enjoy playing Sienna it just feel like she is a bit of a joke when compared to her elf friend.
For example I just had a run as a Volcanic Bolt Battle Wizard and we had a Hand Maiden with us with a Moonfire Bow. Before I had a chance to charge my fire spear she had already killed whichever special/elite I was aiming for.
Another example had me running as Unchained again with Bolt. We had a SotT with Javelins… I hardly got to hit anything at all with the Bolt staff…
Her overcharge mechanic just seems as an outdated design in my opinion. It was ment to be a way to balance her not having to use ammunition, but there are so many ways of getting around that issue now. Sienna just seems overly weak when compared to the other heroes. I mean, at high overcharge she is slowed (unless you play Unchained) and she takes damage when venting. Compare that to the Moonfire Bow…
Her whole schtick was to be THE ranged hero because of not having to deal with ammunition and as such her melee weapons also seem weak across the board unless you go Famished Battle Wizard with the Fire Sword.
Like I said, I am not salty and this is not based on one or two games. I have about 450 hours in VT2, I am no expert, but with me starting to dip my toes in cataclysm diff I just find Sienna useless.
