Nyx augment no give full movement yet? Y? Y it no do good thing? :C

Oh and I'm excited to see the load out screen when I get home, you guys are awesome with UI's.

Have you unlocked your “5th” ability through the quests yet. This should allow you to not care about speed of the frame.

Include a passive benefit to extend the combo counter by a duration

What does that exactly mean in Ash's Rising Storm? Didn't it already have a combo counter duration buff after hitting with Blade Storm?

DE, we don't need augment slots. I think a simpler solution would be to just classify all Augments as Exilus mods. The current Exilus mods are such a small upgrade to stats compared to resources needed to unlock the slot, I would love to be able to just plug an Augment mod in the Exilus slot instead. Using Augment mods is rarely an upgrade because of the loss of one of our main mod slots, allow us to use Augments in the Exilus slot and you would solve many problems with one relatively simply solution.

I’m betting they added a solid number like 5 seconds that can’t be changed by duration. Also if you need that combo counter get [body count] [drifting contact] for your melee.

They have already declared exilus slots are for movement based mods.

The tweaks to Furious Javelin still aren't noticeable, and here's why.

All this mod is doing is increasing your melee dmg output. With a right build and decent weapon, all those mods on our melee that already contribute towards dmg output makes the effects of Furious Javelin almost negligible. You don't notice a 120% increase in dmg when the mods on your melee already increase the weapon's dmg by like 10,000%; it's the same reason why people introduce rivens or utility mods (less recoil, reload, Life Strike, etc.) at the end of their builds.

Besides that, Radial Blind is just (and always will be) a better Furious Javelin. It offers 8x dmg to melee weapons at base and unmodded, its bonus dmg doesn't depend on the number of surrounding enemies, it costs less energy, it decreases enemies' hostility, it can be cast while reloading and moving around and also casts faster, it doesn't require a mod slot, it has a longer stun, and it opens enemies up to finishers. All Furious Javelin offers is that you can carry the bonus dmg around beyond the enemies who were affected by the initial cast, and it now has a 1 second longer duration than Radial Blind.

To make Furious Javelin worthwhile, we'd need either A) an absurd increase in both bonus dmg and duration, but since Excalibur already has amazing dmg output, the better option would be B) an entirely new 3rd ability. As a 2 year Excalibur main, I can definitely say that he'd appreciate survivability and an increase to the range of his dmg output.
