After watching the 132nd devstream, I was left worried. Nervous. Pacing even. Not about the Kuva Liches, although I don't want to be thrown around like a discarded Barbie doll, but about channelling and melee mods.
On my Redeemer Prime, I have a rank 1 Life Strike (Life steal at the cost of channeling efficiency), and was concerned that with channeling being removed entirely, what will happen to life strike, and the other melee mods that involve channeling.
On the topic of melee mods, I was also wondering what the Exilus mods are going to be for melee. I can see that there are mods that boost performance without boosting DPS, and I was wondering if Life Strike was one of them, being that it doesn't increase damage or attack speed on its own.
The "TLDR" Version:
1.) What will happen to the channeling mods?
2.) Will melee mods that don't affect DPS become Exilus mods?
3.) Will Life Strike be one of the Exilus mods?
I made this post to be read by Digital Extremes, but please leave a reply if you know the answers to any of the questions, or give a prediction on what might happen.
