Scoliac... Is No Longer The Toxic Whip

Recommended Posts

Recently started to go through my weapons, and get builds set up for each of my warframes.  Each one with a set of tools that helps to define the way that I play that frame.

 

Yet.. when I looked over my Scoliac...  I noticed a Huge over sight...   With charge attacks gone, save for the glave..   The scoliac no-longer has any toxic properities, which was the big thing for it, and is still listed in the codex..   

 

"The Scoliac Whip a nasty parasitic growth of sinew and bone that inflicts heart stopping toxin damage with each charge attack"    

 

It has no charge attack so no longer has any heart stopping toxin damage.  

 

This needs to be addressed and change the Scoliac to have an Toxin base damage or even viral so that its once again the weapon it was meant to be when i first researched and crafted it.

But people actually like the scoliac as it is, its the best whip there is, no need for toxin damage, or get yourself a karyst dagger for the same result

its the best whip there is

 I would say melee weapon in general. I find the most broad and the most single target use from it.

The tumbling king forces 100% proc slash so you have that.

 

If anything else it needs at least a few more combos in the stance.

Whip in all is more then great and is my primary weapon tied with scindo (where I use Scoliac 80% of the time).

 

If anything else Scoliac should receive 5 toxic or viral damage standard on rest of the stats (something like Mire*).

 

Edit:

*Mire used to be pre dmg 2.0

It has Toxin damage on Slam attacks.

Coiling Viper, the stance that matches Scoliac's polarity, has a combo attack with Slam properties + 200% damage bonus.

The only things that need to be adressed are the mod descriptions that mention charge attacks...

I came here to say this ^

Also to add that that IIRC, one of the whip combo finishers procs toxic too.

When there's only one other weapon in the whip category, there's not a whole lot of competition for the Scoliac to beat.

 

But yeah, I think it should get some innate Toxin or Viral damage.

That's no reason for inconsistency. Either the description or the stats have to change.

Yeah but we only have 2 whips to choose from, and neither are really all that great.

 

You are kidding right? Scoliac can obliterate most of the enemies I find and that includes heavy gunners, bombards and napalms in this. I have mine built around channeling and T3-4 survivals up to 30 minutes it's more then viable to 1-2 hit most of the things (gunners for example take 4 if no crits or tumbling king end proc combo).

Both are great, one of pure dps and the other for stats now if you are comparing it to things like the power creep abomination of dragon nikana or crismon dervish pfff.

"The Best" really depends on you

 

I can use the best saryn builds and still fail her horribly

This is more then true.

 

I for example don't use the Blind Rage/ Fleeting miasma build which pretty much melts down half the ship when used.

I find skills used better for their utility then raw damage (same goes for stompedo, electric jesus, hentai porn and soundquake).
