    Doesn't the DoT change affect envenom DoTs? :mad:

    Maeloch Part of the furniture

    It's not useless, dots have been broken for ages. You can seriously annoy a zerg of solo casters with that double strength aoe dot imo. It's a step in right direction, better than the OP swings from one extreme to the other in some patchs.

    Mana eldie spec nuke was slow, so was animist bombers. Dunno if the bombers needed love, pretty strong as they were imo, but can see why they did it...it's v hard to get the jump on anythign with travel time nm slow cast speed also.

    Small changes and fixes, minor patch but certainly no shitty one. Anmist pretty strong open field class, with this plus changes from 1.88 (?).
  11. Nate

    Nate FH is my second home

    Didn't they get rid of all bomber pets and make them normal nukes?
  12. Maeloch

    Maeloch Part of the furniture

    Nah they did that on the root bombers and prolly some of the other ones that never get used.....afaik...unless I remember patchnotes very wrong.

    Roo Stercogburn Resident Freddy

    Lovely dot changes for bonedancers. My own BD will really benefit from that.

    As an aside, I can't help but think the dot changes have been heavily influenced by dot changes that appeared several patches ago in WoW in a similar way.

    Nice cave shammy stuff.

    Animists are still quite useless if you ask me, about every other class in hibernia is a better caster. When bombers are heading for you you can just kite in the opposite direction and spread out the damage and call for heals not allowing the animist to stack lifetaps on you instead. Vs people that have a clue on an animist you wont be able to drop a thing without assist, very powerful against idiots though.

    They need to fix the bombers so that they go faster so that people cant kite them so easily and i might respec my ani away from pve.

    As for the zerk rr5 i dont know why they didnt make it group or somthing, maulers got 25% all damage absorb for group that goes into there power but i guess the OP sheet is for new classes :p

    Bony Army dot shit might be a laugh on the bd with high mom wp and wm :p pwn with pets and ae dot :p maybe duo with cave shammy...... maybe when they cluster though :p not enough to farm on cluster atm!
  17. Ctuchik

    Ctuchik Resident Freddy

    then they would be insta cast ;)

    THAT i'd love hehe xD

    kinda miss not being able to do 12k damage with DoT's only in DaoC :)

    sigh i miss my warlock.... think i'l resub WoW for a month and go keel me some over confident warriors :)

    Maeloch Part of the furniture

    With the root be changed from a bomber to regular castable one (next patch afaik) should allow stacking up of bombers on targets much easier...although obvious a root might flag up bombers inc.

    There's plenty supply of idiots vs the bomber train to make it pretty strong, it's not that often you get peeps kiting them off even vs good grp. Mebbe cos peeps don't face them much, I dunno.

    Not trying to make out animist is greatest caster, no ones gonna start kicking eldies out of grps, but perfectly solid caster and changes make it bit more playable. ofc if running 100% with grps opted to 11 you prolly wouldn't have one.

    Very nice changes.

    For Shaman, Bd and Heretic :)

    Animist has always been a viable tool, and i think they are still very viable, even more now.

    An animist with capped speed can drop out 5 bombers before one hits, with 225 dd delve. and instantly start spamming baseline Energy dmg lifetap (you'll hit with 4-5 nukes while those 5 bombers hit the target, if that's not insane dps burts, then i dont know what is.

    For a kiting group, turrets are awesome backline interrupts. As is tanglers in the backfield with support.

    Animist dosent need PR either to DPS. as bombers count as pets, wich still do full damage at RS.

    Animist and valewalker are imo the 2 most underplayed group classes, but as maeloch says they could never replace a lighteld, because of the lightelds insanely high group utility.
  24. They got fixed Python now to rule the world :).
  25. Clueless as always.
  26. kirennia

    kirennia Part of the furniture

    Really hope heretic changes don't go out as they are :( After 10seconds, a heretic will actually outdeal a caster in damage. With the first nuke being now double the damage, surely spamming it, although power heavy would give huge damage implications as well? Am just picturing a spell of 300 delve or so, then add to our AF, banelord etc... Nightmareish class if it doesn't get changed. Way over the top in that area.
  27. Dakkath

    Reavers have been crying out for a python change for ages as the style was a POS...

    Well, it's been changed, and it's still a POS, go figure...
  28. Ctuchik

    Ctuchik Resident Freddy

    and after 10 seconds the heretic would surely be OOM, or very close to it.

    comparing hit by hit heretics may have better damage at the very end of their focus dot, but i doubt they would have more damage over a set period of time then a list caster. and most definatly(sp?) not better burst DPS. it takes a fair while for a heretic to get any really big numbers on those focuses.
  29. kirennia

    kirennia Part of the furniture

    With the way it is at the moment with 1.5sec set time between pulses, as well as the initial 2x damage on the first nuke, the damage will be pretty damn high for a 1000AF, 2500hp, sheild wearing, style using hybrid.

    You're still going to be looking at 350-400ish on the first tick, then increasing 50% every 1.5seconds is a huge amount of damage for a class which is harder to kill then a merc. :eek:

    The only consillation to other casters is that the 'Look at me!' carrots of doom are still there so the tic will always be targetted early ;)
