    Fortuna: Hotfix 24.2.7 + 24.2.7.1

    Fix for this sometime would be amazing! It shouldn't be too hard to fix, right? It totally gimps the feel of the weapon!

    Astilla FX Seriously Weakened

    As you can see here, the Astilla's FX have been broken for months, since possibly before the release of Fortuna (although I think it happened sometime during Fortuna's release). It used to (appear) to fire a large, bright slug, but as the glowing FX are broken the underpinning projectiles are visible, and it looks as if it fires piddly little lines that shatter into an undue amount of glass. Looks really bad.

    Revenant is the Worst Frame in the Game

    Except neither is true, because Zephyr is fun and unique and Vauban has a niche, because he has the most powerful CC in the game. I was pointing out base stats in my post because I wanted to give numbers that people could INFER what they would be like with proper strength. 15 attacks is a tiny amount compared to that which you would normally sustain throughout the lifespan of an ability like Shatter Shield or Splinter Storm or any of the other tanking abilities. His 3's percentage damage is 8%, which means it will always be S#&$ no matter what level of enemy, unless you hit a thrall with it, and thralls are already harmless to you anyway so you'd be better off shooting them. I understand exactly how Revenant is supposed to be played. Of the synergies that Revenant has, almost none of them really do anything except for a scant few which offer some benefit; he has a lot of utterly pointless synergies, like the overshield pickups or the ability to grant charges of mesmer skin to allies. Sorry, a charge. One charge. Just because you think I am wrong does not mean I do not know how the frame is supposed to be played. The problem is that in almost all cases except for extremely high level play you would be better off playing any other frame, and his abilities are poorly designed and uninteresting even if you didn't care about his power level. Stop condescending to me.

    Revenant is the Worst Frame in the Game

    The idea that I don't want to like Revenant is silly. Khora, a frame often considered subpar, is one of my absolute favorites, and I love other frames often overlooked like Zephyr and Atlas. Revenant has uses. You can play him and you'll be fine. The reason I'm so vehement in not liking him is because I hate the way DE went about his design. They just stuffed his kit full of meaningless synergies, barely thought about how they could make his abilities fresh, barely cared about his balancing, made his 4 an uninteractive kill-all button, and then just dropped him like a rock. I want Revenant to be redesigned and made stronger and better, which is why I made this post. I like Garuda, even when she does things other frames can do, because she presents a unique mixture of abilities with fun animations and their own caveats. Revenant really doesn't. Everything he does genuinely feels like a retread of another frame's ability or plain, utilitarian stuff, and I think it's really sad, because we could have had something much more interesting than Revenant is. I don't even care about power that much, but I made those arguments for the people who do; the main reason I rag on his 4 so much is not JUST because it doesn't deal as much damage as Peacemakers can, but because it doesn't deal as much damage as Peacemakers can while also being an unoriginal, uninteractive ability. If it brought something new to the table, even if it wasn't as strong, I would be much more inclined to like it. I don't hate Revenant. I hate how little thought, effort and care went into making him.

    Immortality is not that impressive when other frames already do that (Valkyr, Rhino...) Stun enemies that hit you is okay, sure, I guess. Not great, though. Other frames can stun enemies without relying on them shooting you first, after all. And for his 3... yeah, I'm sure you'll get lots of use out of that, when the energy cost of the combo in question is far out of proportion to its usefulness in anything below 150+ level play. For the rest of us who aren't exclusively playing Mot all the time, that ability is mostly pointless. Unless you mean his 4, in which case, just use Mesa's regulators, they're better in almost every way except omnidirectionality. Ember is worse, yeah. I'll cede that. Revenant's the second worst, sorry for my indiscretion. :)

    Revenant is the Worst Frame in the Game

    For his 1: You can also disrupt a hoard by killing enemies. Shrug. It barely disrupts, too; 7 enemies is not that many in a hoard gamemode, unless you're constantly killing the thralls but ONLY just enough to keep them rolling, which is only going to happen in solo. 13 charges is still not very much. Reave is pointless. You can get pretty much as much healing with things like Magus Elevate or Life Strike, etc for free or near free. Things I mentioned in the post. The heal you get is not at all worth the cost. As for his 4, my point is that if you want the kind of damage he can deal, you bring Mesa instead. If you want the trash clearing, you bring Equinox or someone else. I'll cede that Ember is probably worse than Revenant at this point, but Revenant is still really bad. Nothing you said really justifies any of his abilities.

    I was stating base stats, unaffected by build. 15 is still a tiny amount of charges.

    Revenant is the Worst Frame in the Game

    I mean, you know that's a silly thing to say, but I will cede that Equinox is better for quick trash clearing on lower level missions.

    Revenant is the Worst Frame in the Game

    To the bit about the "what do you consider fun", that's not what I meant. I said "those of us that like to have fun, dynamic frames", which was all one word. Revenant basically has one, static use. And also, this is feedback where people give their opinions, and not everything I say is going to be fact; it is my strong opinion that Revenant's design is absolutely horrible because all of his abilities are just a reskin, better or worse that they may be, of other frames' abilities, and for the most part he serves in two very tiny roles and for everyone else he offers absolutely nothing new.

    Revenant is the Worst Frame in the Game

    Kind of. I agree that her 4 is a touch lackluster compared to Snowglobe, although I'd argue it has some unique benefits of its own. Gara's 3 is totally pointless, but her 2 is exceptionally strong and unique because it can be used to reduce damage to objectives by 90%, even rooted ones like Cryopods, which not even Nezha's Safeguard augment can do. This alone gives her a noticeable niche where she works well, and her 1 is just kind of fun tbh.

    Revenant is the Worst Frame in the Game

    Ember: Good at trash clearing in low level missions. One more use than Revenant has. Wukong: Best survivability in the game. Still one more use than Revenant has. Khora: Can heal defense objectives and has plenty of good CC. Still one more use than Revenant has. As for the tidal surge thing: Both turn you into an invulnerable mass of energy/water and send you flying forward through enemies. All frames are bound to have some similarity, but not have every single ability just be the same ability that another frame has with a reskin. Look at Garuda; all 4 of her abilities are unique to her, with different physicality and behavior from other frames. Now look at Revenant; not one of his abilities isn't something a different frame does, just with tweaked effects.

    Revenant is the Worst Frame in the Game

    So to start. Her 1 is, sure, another ability like that, but it's unique in the way it's deployed and fun to use even still. Those abilities are some of the most fun in my opinion and as long as each one is different, it's fine. Her 2... yeah, okay, fair, I wasn't thinking about that one. 3 is true, but having an additional companion ontop of one you already have that has some unique features is definitely unique to Khora. And 4, because it actually deals damage that can kill lower-end enemies and you can quickly kill lots of enemies by whipclawing those who are attached to it; bastille doesn't deal damage. You are absolutely wrong about both of the things you just said. I said Mesa's Shatter Shield WITH THE STAGGER SHIELD AUGMENT, which does stagger enemies, just not for as long as Mesmer Skin does. Besides just being a pure invulnerability ability, Mesmer Skin is just a straight copy of another ability's augmented concept. As for the other thing, Inaros' sandstorm deals immense damage when built correctly and can blend level 100+ Grineer in no time while also CCing them. As for your second point, you still ignored what I was saying, which is that Ember's damage is much more passive, energy efficient, and better at trash clearing because she doesn't have to nearly immobilize herself and repeatedly switch in and out of her ability, making it good for consistent, passive damage. She fills a different niche than Revenant does; you take Ember on low-level missions to kill lots of enemies fast, something that she does better than most frames. You could take Revenant to do damage to high level enemies... or you could take Mesa, who does what he does better in practically every way. Reave cannot be used for vertical movement to reorient a Dansing Revenant, so that doesn't fix the problem of not being able to hit enemies that are above him; what DOES fix that problem is Mesa's ability... to aim upwards. So no, that doesn't really address my complaint. Oh, and Reave is energy-intensive and adds more cost ontop of the already expensive Danse Macabre. Great. As for your closing complaint: part of my issue with 'worst frame in the game' doesn't come from his actual ability in combat, but from the fact that all of his abilities are boring. He's just a badly designed frame. All the frames you mentioned are much more unique, cohesive and fun than Revenant is, and all of them still have niches where they work. Wukong has some of the best solo survivability in the game, Hydroid has Pilfering Swarm and some pretty all-around good CC capabilities, and Atlas has Petrify, which is one of the most powerful CC abilities in the game, along with pretty strong survivability and tons and tons of damage; he's just a fairly well-rounded frame with fun and unique abilities. As for Revenant's infinite scaling: you're right! I'm sure the 0.00001% of players who ever even see level 200 enemies will appreciate that ability! You know, given that with anything below that it would be more effective to just shoot the thralls one by one rather than to spend all that energy to reave them, since for as long as they're enthralled they're already no threat to you! For the rest of us that do anything other than ridiculous Mot survival runs and etc., and like to have fun, dynamic frames that actually have abilities we will ever need to use, well... that's unsatisfactory.

    Vauban has bar-none the best CC in the game. He's absolutely awfully designed, but he still stands slightly above Revenant in that he is actually good at at least one thing.
  14. Glyphicality

    Revenant is the Worst Frame in the Game

    Err... sure, it switches elements and has higher base damage, but it also requires line of sight, drains vastly more energy and is thus less sustainable, and also, y'know, cancels out any DPS that might be attained by Revenant's weapons, since he cannot use weapons during this ability. Also, it can't hit enemies above him, either, and he has to cancel it any time he wants to get around reasonably. The two abilities aren't even comparable, because they apply to two different niches. Ember's is for good, strong, passive damage that can be amped up with Accelerant, and Revenant's is for massive burst damage. Ember's ability is unrivaled in that class, where no other frame can attain nearly the level of passive damage and CC that she gets out of WoF (especially with Firequake), but Revenant is topped by at least Mesa in what he does. Here's the thing: Yeah, Ember's abilities aren't very good besides WoF and Accelerant for buffing WoF. But the reason she's better than Revenant is because WoF gives her a niche where she works. There's a reason she's brought to missions that need lots of trash clearing, because no other frame can do it as good as her, and her Firequake amps that up even further by practically stunlocking enemies in a pretty big radius, AND her damage is much more sustainable, even if it is lower than Revenant's (which of course it is because those two abilities aren't meant to do the same thing). Ember is poorly designed too, but at least she works for something well. She does bring something to the table that no other frame does. Revenant doesn't. At all.

    Revenant is the Worst Frame in the Game

    You mean that frame who's really good for trash clearing and still kills decently high (70-80) level enemies pretty fast? That one? The one with a specific niche where she works well, rather than Revenant who has absolutely nothing he's particularly good at? Nah. Revenant is worse, I'm sorry.
