    Fortuna: Hotfix 24.2.7 + 24.2.7.1

    So I've been thinking really hard about how we can make Titania better, and I've decided to reevaluate each ability and offer critique from there. I'm going to be putting emphasis on Tribute however, as I feel that's her weakest ability. Titania's 1 could be better, but it's serviceable Titania's 3 is good, considering her whole thing is to distract enemies and kill them. Titania's 4, aside from being Archwing, is also really nice. Properly moded Pixia can do insane amounts of damage. Melee needs a buff though. What does her 2 do for her? Nothing. You constantly have to get buffs from enemies, which is super energy expensive, and you have to remember which enemies give which buffs. Furthermore, picking up a buff doesn't just grant it to allies unless they're right next to you. So for the cost it takes to get 4 awful buffs... why can't it just be 1 really good buff that goes to allies? Maybe give each ally a damage buff, along with Titania but also give her an evasion buff for when she's using Razorwing? As an option, you could always steal the buffs from more enemies and increase the damage buff up to, let's say, 100%. Furthermore, tribute buffs should be vacuum-able. The fact you still have to hover right over a buff to get it is asinine, especially since we finally have vacuum for her when in Razorwing. As for other abilities that seem lacking and could use some help, I'd love to see possibly a "projectile" of sorts when casting Titania's 1, so we can better aim it at enemies. Her 3 should also function like Garuda's 2, meaning if I press the ability key over it, it'll kill/detonate the lantern. I also wish lanterns got a tether of sorts to the ground, so they stay in one place. Maybe ragdolling them around could do extra damage to enemies? Overall, I'm happy to see Titania finally getting buffs, but I can't help but feel like we need even more to really push her from mediocre to good, or maybe even great.

    Fortuna: Hotfix 24.2.6

    Still no revert/rebuff for Staticor primary shot's pitiful 2m blast radius. Can we *please* at least get 4m for it? It doesn't even have to be 8m like it used to be, just 4m is fine. ;-;
  3. -Mittens-

    Fortuna: Hotfix 24.2.4

    Yay. Now all you gotta do is make it actually have a blast radius again on the default fire! 2m blast radius is too small, 8m was probably too much... just give us 4m so Staticor stays fun/good ok?

    Nyx & Titania Dev Workshop

    I'm honestly not impressed. You guys are limiting yourselves here by refusing to try newer abilities. I understand the whole "if it ain't broke don't fix it" approach to old ability types, but for 2 of the worst frames in the game right now... they need proper reworks. So here's my issues with each of them: Nyx: 1) Mind Control still relies on bad AI. Just because they stay near you does not make the ability better, nor does being able to buff them make it any better. If anything, her 1 should be a buff to allies. Like, imagine a Nyx giving her "mental strength" to allies for a duration. I'd rather have an ability to buff allies than an ability to buff an unreliable controlled enemy. 2) Psychic Bolts has promise but really strongly relies on numbers. In my opinion, at around ~185% Power Strength, it should remove armor/shields by 100%. Otherwise, nothing to note here. 3) Chaos isn't getting any changes? Even though enemies can still go out of their way to attack you??? Missed opportunity. A really big shame. 4) Absorb needs to be scrapped entirely. Either that, or have Assimilate built-in and have the augment do something else. I think you should have something like the Moa precept that has an AOE that slows enemy bullets and such, and still offer her a good way to tank like Assimilate provides. Also this doesn't solve the issue of teammates griefing you and deleting all your energy with 2 Tigris shots. 😕 Passive) This could be good... if enemy accuracy didn't scale with level, and scale over 100%. I would think more about this one tbh. Titania: 1) No Spellbind changes..? Sure I guess. Maybe increase the cast speed? 2) Tribute is just... awful. There's nothing you can salvage here. Much like Nyx, it should just be a straight buff to your allies... only in this context, it should be ONE really good buff, not FOUR bad buffs. Your reliance on keeping this ability as similar as it is will ultimately kill this ability, and Titania will still be one of the worst frames. 😕 3) Lantern changes are good. Having a way to have multiple distractions for enemies, and a way to explode the lanterns is a really solid buff. I just hope the explosions deal good damage. 4) ...No Razorwing changes? As happy as I am that you guys are finally giving her vacuum in her razorwing, that doesn't just "cure" all the other issues. Much like with Nyx's proposed new passive, the evasion that's built-in does not work for enemies after a high enough level. Enemy accuracy can scale over 100%. Razorwing also needs a damage boost for the butterflies as well. Then there's the issue of needing to forma TWO weapons for one frame. Titania is the most forma-expensive frame in the game, because you not only have to forma her, you have to forma her weapons too since **Forma for SOME reason doesn't let you polarize the frame AND their exalted weapons.** That's more a general complaint for exalted frames, but for her it's twofold. Passive) I mean... it works? It does what it needs to do, so I can't really complain. Overall: I'm incredibly disappointed by what you've presented to us. I think you guys should slow down, and think more on the frames themselves and give them proper reworks with newer functioning abilities and not just rehashing what's already broken. I don't mean to be vile, but we've waited a long time for these reworks, may as well make them the best they can be yes?

    Chimera: Hotfix 23.10.3

    Please revert this. This was so much fun and really made the weapon feel super unique and cool. I don't think this was a fix, I think this was just you guys removing fun again. 😕

    Chimera: Hotfix 23.10.1

    Thanks for nerfing Zaws... It's not like I enjoyed having good range or anything... 😕
  8. -Mittens-

    Where is update 23.10.0?!

    Please just remove self damage entirely. It's such an awful mechanic and does nothing but make using certain weapons annoying.

    The Meaning of Mainline: Next Update ETA!

    Will we see the Gram Prime's combo counter 100% fixed with this mainline? Because I really love the sword but having to get 900 hits to hit 3x combo (and 4x being 27,000 hits) is insane and super annoying.
  10. Yay, no-rework-MR-fodder Prime is here! At least Rubico/Gram are great. 🙏

    [PC Update 23.5] Revenant Feedback Megathread

    Only it needs to be changed because it costs too much energy for damage that's easily topped by Mesa, who does more damage for less energy consumption. Saying it's good now is laughable. It's absolutely unacceptable to let these kinds of nerfs slide, and you saying "do not change" is telling DE "hey, let's make all good damage abilities bad". Revenant literally got Ember'd.

    [PC Update 23.5] Revenant Feedback Megathread

    Really unhappy with the nerf to Revenant's 4. Now it has the highest energy drain in the game and isn't worth casting. You basically need Arcane Energize to even get use of this ability, and requiring a ~3000 platinum arcane just to comfortably play a frame is absolutely unacceptable. It was fine before, so why nerf it? Furthermore, why buff his 1? Can he get a new 1 instead? Perhaps make his 3's dash the new 1 and give him a new 3 instead? I don't see the purpose of enthralling enemies, as it seems like just a waste of energy and time. Furthermore, his 2 feels like a really bad take on Iron Skin, and enemies at higher levels can melt through the stacks quickly. On top of that, with the 4 now being nerfed and basically useless, his 2 is inadvertently nerfed. His 3 costs way too much energy and you don't go far enough of a distance. I highly suggest swapping this ability's spot with the 1 and changing the current 1 to be something more synergized with his overall kit and theme. I'm incredibly upset that this nerfed happened, as it feels like it did not need to. Please, please look at Revenant again and make him great. Thank you.

    The Sacrifice: Hotfix 23.4.2

    Ugh, why would you nerf the T4 scaffold! I was enjoying this but these nerfs are hard and really unnecessary. Back to the 223 amp I guess 😕

    The Sacrifice: Update 23.3.0 + 23.3.0.1

    Really unhappy about these changes tbh. The best change is his passive and that's great. The 1 buff is weak at best and unreliable at worst. It just doesn't feel like enough damage. No buffs to Concuss or Shred grenades and Bounce and Trip Wire still exist and are useless. I would like to see something to replace trip wire/bounce. Maybe a deplorable turret? Furthermore, with the current meta being damage, I'd love to see his 3 get damage on it. Maybe combine it with 1 to make the net electrified? Same with 4, want more damage and perhaps synergy with his 1. Implement these changes and Vauban could be wonderful. This is definitely a step in the right direction, he just needs more to be great.

    The Sacrifice: Hotfix 23.0.4

    Really happy we have information on what's what now, but that should be turned ON by default in my opinion.
  16. Okay, so I have numerous concerns about this workshop. First of all, I strongly advise NOT making Titania's guns to secondary guns. I feel like they're fine as is being based off primary mods. If I'm honest, I would make them based off of shotgun mods in particular. Just personal preference. Next is Limbo, and while I want to be EXTREMELY HAPPY that us allies can use guns in rift, I can't... because once again you've hit us with this compromise crap. First of all, Limbo himself should still have the option to freeze his own guns. This is the only bearable way to do, say, the 3 head shots 1 aim glide riven challenge. Furthermore, if it is in solo play, then I feel like that's what most Limbos would want in solo play, the ability to freeze their own guns. Second, why is his duration getting nerfed? Once again, compromises. I don't agree with this at all because it honestly feels pointless. Like, it comes off as if we're not allowed to have our cake and eat it too. I will never understand why we have to settle for a nerf because of a QoL change, there should not be a single compromise unless it is absolutely necessary. Heck, you don't even have to give him the full 30 seconds back, give us 20 at the very lowest, not 15. I'm overall not very pleased with the direction Titania is going, and I really hope Limbo's duration doesn't get a nerf that bad and we still have the option to freeze our own guns as Limbo.

    Melee: Present and Future goals!

    Take out spinning meta? That's perfectly fine I guess, as it does get tiring after a while. Take out going through walls/objects, and combo from quick melee? Absolutely NOT. That is absolutely, 100% not okay in my book. Melee going through walls doesn't make sense, and I get that, but this is a game about ninjas in space operated by kids. Melee going through walls is the only bearable way to do things like medallion hunting for syndicates, unless you hate yourself and play box breaker Limbo. Then you're taking out combo from quick melee, which is just the absolute worst. Speaking for myself, I absolutely disdain heavy attacks. I want to go fast and still do good damage, and this will completely nerf every single melee in the whole game in one fell swoop. Like sure, you can buff the damage across all melees, but even with those balance passes, melee will still be nerfed on the whole. Also, I speak for those who spin2win in the sense that those people enjoy efficiency when killing. It's satisfying for them to spin or cast an ult and watch a whole room of dudes vanish. By focusing on heavy attacks and such you are also ruining enjoyment for a large portion of people who crave efficiency in their killing. I foresee this change making a lot of vets leave to be honest, because most of us just want to kill the things fast. Then there's channeling and blocking... I don't know a single person who uses either of these. Channeling used to be more present because Life Strike, but now we have Medi Ray and several really solid heal frames. I find myself only ever channeling for the effect and nothing else, because there's no reason to channel in any other circumstance. As for blocking... why? Why block the dude when I can go in there and kill him incredibly fast? Blocking is so... anti-synergetic with the rest of the game. It's slow, tedious, and nobody ever does it. I highly encourage y'all to please take this back to the drawing board. Because right now, this is looking worse than Damage 2.5 when that got announced. Please, keep melee fast, keep melee fun, but most important of all, keep it efficient. Thank you.

    Beasts of the Sanctuary: Hotfix 22.18.8

    Gotta be honest, Khora changes don't feel like enough :/ Like, her 1 does pretty good damage now, and her 2 is solid. I still only feel like her 3 is useful for healing and nothing else, and to be honest her 4 needs to just be scrapped at this point. My main issue with her is honestly her 4. It feels like a worse Vauban 3 (and that's saying a lot), has kind of mediocre range, and I feel like you need more duration than you would realistically want for just her 4. I know that for whatever reason y'all are against the Exalted Whip, and for a while I was too, but I'm kinda wishing that was still the original idea... Her 3 on the other hand, I just don't see the point in attack or protect. Cat/Dog AI is unreliable at best, and feels nonexistent at most. Like, why would I wanna send Venari out to attack or disarm an enemy when I can save the energy (because those modes will just get her killed faster) and use heal? Even then I still feel iffy on this ability. As for her 1 and 2, they work nicely and have good synergy. But I don't think those are enough to make Khora a frame worth picking in meta situations or even just for fun. I feel like a bunch of people are just gonna rank her and then never touch her again, and that's unfortunate considering just how long it took us to get her. Meanwhile Onslaught changes seem nice, but still no slight increase for Vandal part drop chance. 2-3% feels WAY too low, and 5% for all the parts would be much fairer. Furthermore I still think we should get 1 reward per zone so Zone 4 becomes the new C. As is, pub lobbies only go to 8 then stop because they only want 1 rotation. This would cut the farm time in half and make it less of a slog to go through. Overall, a mixed update, but mostly good rather than bad. Oh, and those focus changes are literally the best. Like, thank you so much. ADDENDUM: Oh and this stuff right here is one of the reasons I want Strangledome gone/taken out:
  20. Great post from you guys. THANK YOU so much for this. This is a much better way to do the bite-sized content thing. Much better than crippling efficiency! Yeah I can understand why it's taking so long. Appreciate the honesty on it taking a while! If I run anymore I'll be sure to post screen caps, assuming you guys want them in support or bug reports. While I haven't encountered these environmental hazards, I do appreciate the spice. Just going around with an Atterax can get taxing after a while, so I appreciate the efforts going towards this. Can't wait to hear more! I LOVE THIS CHANGE! Since I've been using the mode to work more on focus, as a Vet who usually runs Greater or Eidolon lenses on focus farming gear, I can greatly appreciate the increase.This also means there's more reason to keep playing for peeps since there's more focus to be gained. Once again, very understandable. Scaling in the game is busted everywhere, so I appreciate the acknowledgement. As for the undue stress, I feel like you guys handled this the best you could given the chaos of yesterday's hotfix. Can't wait for the changes to host migration and such! One last note though: Even with the efficiency changes and the enemy scaling, I still feel like we should get 1 reward per zone. I find in pub lobbies people don't want to stay long, so having a rotation per zone would further help that bite-sized ideal you guys have for this. This way, Zone 4 becomes the new rotation C. This will also help peeps who want to solo sometimes (like myself) be able to obtain the C rotation. Then, going past Zone 4 is for those who want to risk the efficiency drain and enemy levels. It would also be a wonderful way to entice even more people to keep playing, with a steady stream of rewards. Furthermore, I still feel like the Vandal parts in Elite need to be at least 5% drop chance instead of 2% and 3%. It's a simple 2-3 percent addition that will go a long way. You can keep the Captura scenes at 3% however, because those will always be welcomed additions. As is right now, the Vandals are really tedious to farm with the 2-zone-1-reward thing going on, and the drop chances of the parts really doesn't help that case. Also, and this might sound crazy, but I feel like Khora parts should come back to Elite's drop tables and some of the relics be removed. Like, keep the relics of the current Prime Access in there, but also let people have an option to farm Khora outside regular mode. The main reason I bring this up is for Vets who find the regular mode boring, like myself and some others I play with. This also lets us kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Overall wonderful post, love the snappy response to everything, and really looking forward to seeing what you guys do from here on out with Onslaught!

    Beasts of the Sanctuary: Hotfix 22.18.7

    @Cephalon_Morrigan I understand the anger and stuff, but stop witch hunting the devs. That's not cool.
  22. -Mittens-

    Beasts of the Sanctuary: Hotfix 22.18.7

    Okay. So. I realize what this has turned into. I'm still very upset about it, but I want to return here and offer some constructive criticism and not just an opinion. --Elite Onslaught-- The drop tables seem a bit cluttered now, but that is okay. I think you guys should increase the drop chances on the Vandal parts with less than 5% chance, to 5% chance. This way they do not seem impossible to obtain, or at the very least, won't take nearly as long. --Onslaught on the whole-- I think you guys should make the AABC rotations give 1 reward per zone. This way, people who solo can reach Zone 4 and still easily get that sweet C rotation drop. This will also entice people even more to play the game mode. I think you guys shouldn't have touched efficiency drain. 10x is way too much, 6x felt a bit much at the time but was still doable. Go back to 6x drain please. I realize this isn't meant to be like survival or defense where you go indefinitely, but a bunch of us Vets really enjoy this mode and want to go farther than Zone 8. --ADDITIONAL NOTES-- I see some dev witch hunting in here, you guys need to stop that. That's not okay. Hopefully DE understands why we are so upset and why we don't want to be censored, but this is not the way to win their affection. Don't witch hunt the devs. Knowing that this whole storm fiasco is my fault, I want to say this: I love this game. It's my favorite game to play, and I only want what's best for it. This is my way of saying that I would love to keep playing, and hopefully not get banned. I have given this game more of my time and money than I can comfortably admit on the forum, so I really don't want to see that go. Please address the Public Relations and understand that everybody who is angry, is angry because they care. With kind regards -Mittens- ADDENDUM: Also, stop being so vulgar with your messages. That only paints us as unreasonable and overly annoying. Thank you.
  23. I have a wonderful solution that everybody, including you peeps at DE will like. Just make it so each zone is a rotation. Zone 4 will be the new C. 1-A 2-A 3-B 4-C. Just do it that way. Then the level scaling doesn't even matter much. Furthermore, increasing the efficiency drain by almost double is a dumb move. I realize this isn't intended to be, like, normal endless missions. But that just means there's no real reason to play it much after you get what you want. I don't care so much about the scaling and stuff, just change how rewards are given and leave the efficiency drain alone. This whole TL;DR reads as "No fun allowed" with the proposed changes.

    Khora's Planned Changes

    This is definitely a step in the right direction, but there's some issues I have with it. Whipclaw: The damage AoE should be enlarged, so you don't straight up miss an enemy with it. Ensnare: This ability seems fine, but I feel like there should be some % of total damage from teammates and you spread across all the enemies ensnared. Venari: There should be a 4th option to revive Venari if you cannot rez her in time at the cost of some energy. Also, you mention Animal Instinct, but what about making the Hunter mods and their set bonus work on her? Strangledome: Honestly the only way I see this being good is if it were to act kinda like Frost's globe and protect people inside it. Furthermore, it should act like Zephyr's tornadoes and spread damage to all enemies inside. Also I feel like an increase in the base duration and making it at least 2x larger would make it better to use.
  25. Lol still no change to the reward amount or scaling rewards. The Harvester could really use a boost to 400 by default, with 50 kuva being added every rotation (5 minutes). As it is right now, it's not worth it for people who don't have boosters/cats, and it's barely worth it for those of us with boosters and cats. Heck, let's throw out an alternative: reduce the roll costs for rivens? EDIT: Can you also for the love of all that is holy make PLAGUE ZAW BPS REUSABLE? Along with the exclusive Arcane BPs? There is no reason for a limited time thing to not have reusable blueprints.
