  1. Man, this comment did NOT age well.
  2. Such as? I'm curious as to what sort of meta things you mean. Like Hildryn's Blazing Pillage augment combined with maximized Strength and Range being absolutely busted as frick? Or maximum Strength Gloom being equally stupid because of 95% slowdown? Or perhaps the Melee Meta, where Condiuon Overload, Weeping Wounds, Body Count, and Blood Rus are commonplace?
  3. I mean, like, at what point does the game go from being "casual" to being "meta"? We all know Condition Overload is a... Notably strong mod, so is that meta? Or is it casual?
  4. Yeah, I know. It hurts me just as much as it hurts you. Unfortunately, I brought this topic to life on the work clock, so rip in die, me.
  5. Well, there are still a good number of strategies around 95% of players use in everyday practice. The Melee Meta of Condition Overload and Viral/Corrosive+Slash, for example. What say you of these?
  6. It probably means that the game is balanced in regards to the most common denominator- In this case, new-ish players and the Star Chart.
  7. So, I've brought up, from time to time, a concept I've come to call the Casual MetaTM. This is a thing I've been thinking about for a long while, but I'm curious what the general consensus about its existence is. What is the targeted area of the game that envelops it? What is considered the meta to the casual player? What IS casual in this game? If anyone has any input they'd like to discuss, this would be the place!
  8. That seems to be the general consensus, which is why I've slowly been working on a project in my spare time- The Casual MetaTM. The focus for balance should be on the Star Chart's level of difficulty, which admittedly, isn't a lot, but it exists for those who don't own the proper mods. Hell, I even get knocked on my butt every-so-often due to an unexpected spike in strength.
  9. It would be easy, yes, but DE isn't exactly known for doing things the easy way, now are they? They don't always put band-aids on the issue, but they sure do find weird workarounds to their problems...
  10. I see several quotes and messages highlighting Yareli's stats some more, and yeah, you all sum up my points to a T. Someone remarked that Inaros is worse, but I still stand by the fact that, even if it's irrelevant in 90% of the game, being able to just say "No, you." to Nullifiers with no downtime in your defense is immensely satisfying. At least Inaros has one build that can pull anything out of his stats, and Helminth can save his useless 3. Yareli, on the other hand... Not even Helminth can save that poor girl.
  11. And that's exactly the reason everyone says she's bad. She has little to no scaling damage, her abilities are bizarrely mod-resistant, she has no synergy between any of her abilities, and she doesn't even have the tankiness to survive very well, despite Merulina's 75% DR.
  12. Actually, unlike Yareli, Inaros can at least do SOMETHING, that being facetanking level 1-200 enemies without giving an iota of a damn. Yareli... She can barely handle level 60, let alone 200.
  13. See my previous comment, Khora is, thematically, pretty spider-based.
  14. Actually, design-wise, Khora is themed after a spider. Heck, even Strangledome and Ensnare have elements of spider-isn in them.
  15. Inaros in general is one of the best tanks, albeit a single-target tank who thrives best in Survival and Exterminate missions rather than objective defense. He also requires a very specific build that maximizes HP and Armor, along with a maxed Arcane Grace, so...
  16. This is exactly what I was trying to tell the WF Discord. Inaros is bad. But he has one specific use case: Not giving an iota of a #*!% what you throw at him. You build him right, and he is immortal.
  17. In regards to all the "X Prime can't exist" comments, I have to say: When I see a Prime, I think of it like a "what if" scenario that we actually get to play with, rather than just developer fanfiction. We know Revenant, Nova, and Nidus(as examples) probably shouldn't get Prime variants out of lore consistency, but DE has plans to make a Prime for EVERY Frame, whether it makes sense or not, so inevitably, this debate was gonna come up. But don't discard them because they're lore-breaking. Embrace the idea of "what if X Frame had a Prime version not impacted by time?"
  18. I think you mean it's like the sci-fi version of a truck. :P
  19. I feel like the Epitaph is finally the replacement to the Sonicor we were waiting for. Does it perform Tenno Space Program? No. But is it effective? Hilariously so. It has become the first secondary weapon I use almost ever, especially more than the Cedo.
  20. Yeah, that one. I tell ya, the levels of absolutely batS#&$ crazy the Epitaph can become with Hemorrhage is nuts!
  21. Yeah, Epitaph on its own is crazy good, but pair that with a 95% slow Gloom Sevagoth... Holy Hell, the Slash damage from procs you can do with that one mod I forget the name of is absolutely insane. Easily caps level 100+ Corrupt Heavy Gunners with one headshot, provided you give it a few seconds to tick down.
  22. I mean, not every Inaros runs the Eternal Inaros build. Usually they do, but I know for a fact not everyone has invested the time and/or money, unlike me. And to be fair, Unga Bunga strats with Umbra aren't exactly underpowered to begin with, so...
  23. I mean, fair. I enjoy Inaros simply for the "You know what? #*!% this and #*!% you. I don't care about any of y'alls, I'm here to get my affinity/loot and get out, and if you try to kill me, well good luck." attitude bringing him gives. You know if someone brings an Inaros to a mission, they won't need your help any time soon, and you probably won't die for the next eternity, since he'll show up out of nowhere at the last moment to rez you.
  24. You aren't entirely wrong, but Inaros needs a bit more than that to survive high-level content like you think. And also, Inaros is the easy answer to immortality. His gameplay loop leaves much to be desired, however, and his abilities range from decent to actually useless.
