Suggestion For Nova


Recommended Posts

Seeing all of the talk about a nerf i figured id throw out an idea that might make people happy

 

The way i see nova currently is as a nuke caster

 

I wanted to expand on this idea in a way that will make everyone happy
(even though it wont)

 

First off change Null star to blast dmg (if it isnt already) and give it a 70-100% knockdown rate when maxed

 

Leave 2 and 3 as they currently are (unless youd rather have them changed)

 

For Molecular Prime:

 

Remove both the 2x damage and slow debuff

 

Decrease damage dramatically

 

Increase range

 

Have MP drain all of the users energy on use

 

MP damage is also increased based on energy used (1 energy = .01% dmg increase, 450 energy = 450% dmg increase)

 

Damage is affected by power STR

 

Energy efficiency mods greatly increase efficiency of this (Near 900% increase? My math is bad ok)

 

She becomes a situational super nuke

Why drain all of the energy..It would be better to change it into a charge like ability. Like Absorb and Sound quake are now.

 

The player could decide how much energy gets put into it. 

 

Edit: there is already a MP rework coming up tho

What? No. 

 

Her ulti isn't used for damage past mid game, which would render it completely useless. 

 

DE should remove the damage from her ulti and simply make it a debuff. 200% more damage taken 50% slower at the cost of giving the ability duration instead of it lasting for ONE MINUTE. 7/10/15 seconds tops, affected by duration mods. And to give her some damage, they should make Anti Matter Drop affected by range mods.

 

Bam, Nova nerfed without making her completely useless.

Youd change her role entirely by doing this

SPOILER ALERT

 

THAT'S HER ROLE.

 

A nuke.

 

Have you ever used Anti Matter Drop?

 

Actually, you can even give MP a short stun, as the enemies need to get "used" to being much heavier due to the priming. Which would open them up long enough to set up AMD. You see, AMD that uses range mods...well. Let's just say it would be larger than Nova's MP range.

 

Introduction some strategy too, no more being bored with MP spam!

I've been advocating almost this exact change on the main thread.  People don't seem to understand what makes Molecular Prime useful in late game situations.

I went as far as building an AMD modded nova

 

Not my style but i can se the potential in it

 

But she wont have the kind of Large area AoE nuking power she has now

 

Itd be more focused

I understand MP perfectly and actually run a min dmg max utility nova always

 

Thats beside the point

 

I was hoping shed be more of a nuke than a CC

 

Kind of like how Embers role is DPS with a small amount of CC

So let me get this straight:  You "understand MP perfectly", you just want the effectiveness of the ability removed?  Sound logic.

 

Regardless of you're ability to use AMD, that is her nuke, MPrime serves as a debuff.  Removing the slow & damage multiplier would give her two nukes, one of which would be substantially less useful then the other.

 

And it's not CC (atleast not GOOD CC) when they can still shoot back at you.  It's a debuff, like sonar.

If you overextend it it becomes amazing CC

 

The slow effect is very useful but unfitting IMO

 

AMD is a bit too small AoE to really be a nuke as well

 

Thats why i say itll change her role entirely
