To be a bit impartial here, they already buffed burning to 30% on rings two months back if I am not mistaken. Apart from that, they seem to just be elevating all the debuff perk duration modifiers (to include poisoning) to 30%. You can still get ~80% burn duration increase from Burning, Fire Staff’s Kindle, and the 250 Intelligence Threshold, that is if all of those perks are working in tandem correctly.
There still is room for improvement of course when it comes to Meteor Shower, Pillar of Fire like you said in another thread, and doing away with the windup on Burnout. Thwarting Strikes at least does not feel like a complete waste for FS now that Incinerate gets grit and Mortal Power might really make FS a good sustained DPS weapon. The backstab removal on Flamethrower and Incinerate are understandably tough to adapt to.
This.^ once the stagger is removed from pen shot bow is done, I don’t think they can challenge good mages anymore. and if they slightly reduced the rate of fire on the bow, fire mage is bis. But even with the stagger remove from pen shot is enough, won’t stop me now.
You are Probably just bad with firestaff then. One bow isn’t even that big of a deal unless they run rapier, to flèche away and go back to pew pew, but now it will be even easier to run them down with no pen shot stagger. Probably just a git gud case for you. Firestaff does huge damage. Your delusional to think otherwise. One fireball hits for 3-4k when I crit. And it’s up every 5 seconds with full refreshing and heavy hit cdr. Bow players are only hard to fight when there are multiple shooting you at the same time.
People always say that to disregard what we’re saying. I’m good with firestaff and still think it’s lame. It’s why it’s not what I primarily use.
There’s only 3 viable options in firestaff abilities and one of them has a huge windup.
Fireball hits for 4k when you crit. Maybe in your “test” against dummies with no Resilient.
I like how your name checks out.
Personal attacks against me dont give you any credibility.
Even less your aggressive desperate attempt to have the Bow remain OP and the widely considered bad FS as it is - by claiming that you used the latter.
Fun fact: the Spear is a godly secondary by skilled light armour bow players that know to time their abilities
I’m not sitting here trying keep bow being Op? I’m saying it will be significantly easier to kill them since they lose their stagger on pen shot and poison arrow is getting big nerf as well. There are barely any bows in wars still. Just a few cracked bow players , it’s just an issue in opr because there are literally 10 of them in each team. Fire staff doesn’t under perform, if you think it does your just not playing right. Simple as that full stop.
