The crowncrates will be a goldsink for some people. Good for ZOS, bad for players.
wow so the scrubs who cant run maelstrom bitch and moan enough to get guaranteed drops in maelstrom, then super scrubs that cant even run it bitch and moan about not being allowed in trial groups cus they suck ass and their dps sucks so they nerf maelstrom daggar axe? wtf is that all about?? so the only thing they could look forward to getting when they are good enough to get these weapons is gonna be so nerfed its not gonna be worth using… fucking scrubs man. this is wrong. maybe increase stam costs? or something like that, but just straight take damage away from a super hard to get grind item that an individual is responsible for getting is just stupid. is zos gonna keep nerfing everything till the best in slot gear is bubble wrap and a wet pool noodle.
IDK why people scream Nerf on everything its getting ridiculous on every game and the developers actually do it why not worry about stuff not doing enough damage and bring stuff up to par or adjust a few things that are overly OP but the Truth people need to get their game up instead of crying Nerf on everything not everybody is gonna be a great Dps maybe try heal or tank or accept the fact your not very good but complain for Zos to baby you and continue to ruin games.
They’re really fun to play. I have 2 maxed characters of every class, both stam and mag. Mag dks have insane aoe damage. For pve I run 5 pc julianos, skoria, and willpower. I haven’t seen anyone clear trash mobs faster. They can be somewhat hard to sustain so they’re really potion dependent especially if you’re playing in a trial for time. single target dps is where they struggle in my experience. Forming an efficient rotation can be difficult compared to other classes. They’re without a doubt a dot build which is uncommon for competitive mag dps builds. For pvp, you’re going to usually be focusing more on dk skills to self heal and your dots to slowly burn down the enemy so usually its a battle of surviving an opponents burst and then taking control e.g. surviving a nb’s ambush and draining a mag sorc’s stam through talons so he cant shield stack. just my experience.
It was going to have to be one or the other Magi buff or a Maelstrom nerf, the weapons were OP. As you said they will still be best in slot. The crown crates… I mean what the hell can you say? I hope ZOS makes a ton of money on them so they can develop more content. I wont be buying them though.
I would have preferred more spell damage for magi classes. How many casters do you know running around with 3K spell damage? Weapon damage? its normally 3K on the low end. The issue beyond maelstrom is the fact one of the weapons gives you major brutality, you cant get major sorcery from a weapon buff. So you get a maelstrom two hand with rally procing its major DPS that has no equivelent magi side.
