Umbra and Exalted Blade tweak

Umbra's AI needs a tweak badly.

Whenever Exalted Blade is activate and you switch out to operator and switch back in, exalted blade is switched off and the combo meter built up by it gets YEETED into oblivion.

I propose that when exalted blade is active and we switch to operator, umbra continues using Exalted blade until it runs out of energy or have an option to switch off umbra's AI through the option menu or arsenal.

Its on exactly easy to build up combo meter with umbra because exalted blade's waves do not count towards the combo meter.

Regular Excalibur doesn't have this problem and well Excalibur Prime isn't available anymore and umbra is the closest thing to a prime that non-backers have.

Umbra's Exalted Blade being disabled when switching to Operator exists to avoid exploits of activating Exalted Blade and while the player permanently stays as an Operator.

... Yes, its an exploit because Specters, Umbra, Stalker and Acolytes have no energy to begin with and abilities cost no energy for those units...

 

Why do they use other abilities then? Because they're not toggled abilities...

While this is true I would love it if they put exalted blade on a timer for umbra to use from time to time.

Read the second option: Have an option to switch off umbra AI through a menu or through the arsenal.

If the first option is not viable then the second option is a possible solution.

I know some like Umbra's gimmick of having AI/sentience.

Having an option to switch this on and off through a menu or arsenal would fix the Yeeting combo meter and those who hate the gimmick.
