(Imaginary) Ash Rework

Recommended Posts

Ash is finally getting a (fictional) rework! All 3 of his abilities, and his special emote, have been significantly improved:

  • Emote: Shuriken. Introducing a new synergy to Ash! Upon reaching full energy, Ash will explode for 50 damage in a 7m radius, dying in the process. Emote: Shuriken's energy cost increased to 100, allowing Ash to easily expel excess energy. Seeking Shuriken additionally reduces energy cost by 75.
  • Smoke Screen. Because of the very short duration, Ash frequently had to wait out a few remaining seconds, in order to recast this ability before engaging in other activities. To avoid this, Smoke Screen can now be "queued up" - activate the ability while still active, to automatically recast once the duration ends. Can be cancelled.
  • Teleport. In response to popular demand, we made this ability (and it's augment) function reliably! In addition, finishers resulting from Teleport trigger Mercy mods. New functionality: Hold Teleport to quickly teleport in aiming direction, at 50% reduced range. Also removed unnecessary animation locks, allowing you to move at all times while casting Teleport.
  • Blade Storm. Overall power reduced. Enemies can only have one mark. Clones will now start attacking marked targets immediately (Blade Storm no longer need's to be toggled off).

The changes to Emote: Shuriken are intended to be an engaging new mechanic, since the emote previously had no impact on gameplay whatsoever, and was widely ignored by our players. We also wanted Teleport to be an ability that players would use (at least occasionally), and thus had to improve it quite significantly.

Blade Storm and Smoke Screen have been reinterpreted to be less of a nuisance, and have become a natural and unintrusive part of Ash's playstyle. Become one with the shadows, Tenno!

(This is a rework of fiction, intended to entertain myself and possibly others. Names, characters, businesses, places, events, locales, and incidents are either the products of the author's imagination or used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual reworks, present or past, or actual abilities is purely coincidental.)

It's called a joke, you might want to look that up.

Since you don't seem to be in the mood for jokes, have a serious attempt then:

  • Shuriken. Exalted secondary weapon, 50 energy to activate. Finite, but large magazine. Reactivate to refill all ammo. 0% crit, mediocre damage, 300% status, mostly slash damage, bounces up to 3 times like glaives. Can deal damage via slash status, but mainly just weakens foes by applying whatever status you want. Augment stays the same, but works on all bounces (currently it's bugged and will often not apply it's effect if the shuriken touches a surface).

That actually is interesting

Gotta stay consistent. The other 90% of your post uses humor as a framing device, yes, but the suggestions themselves are actually serious
