B_Airborne Posted October 26, 2014 Share Posted October 26, 2014 Well of life is definitely trinity's most overlooked ability. However, lately I've been exploring new trinity builds but I've been having trouble trying to find where well of life fits into builds for trinity and how it could possibly help the team on missions. This is mostly due to the following: 1: Well of life increases enemy damage reduction This mostly a good thing, as it allows teammates to get health from the enemy, and not have to worry about killing them too quickly. However, once a teammate uses up the healing pool that well of life provides, he or she will get no benefit for shooting the enemy, and the enemy just becomes a godlike bullet sponge. Suggestion for fix: Make the enemy take full damage from a player once the player has hit his/her well of life healing cap. This would allow the ally the healing and then dispatch the enemy quickly, which would really help for boss fights, as that is when the usage of well of life is most applicable. (because everyone is shooting at the same enemy.) 2: Well of life is not re-usable until the enemy either dies or the duration ends This ends up being a huge problem when combined with the aforementioned damage reduction. In a nutshell, the problem is that, in a high level mission where enemies have high amounts of health, once everyone on the team has hit their healing cap the trinity has to wait a long time to recast the ability as the enemy probably isn't dead yet and the ability cannot be recast until the enemy dies or the duration of it ends. In addition, the trinity player cannot just try to decrease the duration of well of life, as that affects the duration of damage reduction that the team can get from a well timed blessing cast. Suggestion for fix: Either use the fix for problem 1 or change the way that the casting for well of life works. This could be done by well of life not only having a duration but also a toggle, so the trinity player could turn off well of life prior to the ability running out of time. It could also be fixed by allowing the trinity player to recast well of life on another enemy, thereby getting rid of the well of life cast on the original enemy and now the new enemy is now the target of well of life. 3: Well of life puts a huge emphasis on communication between the trinity and other team members This is by no means a problem for teammates that have built their own team and then queued up for a match, however it is a huge problem for matchmaking missions, where the teammates are not all in a third party chat program (ie: Teamspeak or Skype). This is because the only way for well of life to be effective for the rest of the team is for the trinity to communicate that he/she is casting well of life on a specific enemy thereby allowing his/her teammates to locate the enemy and grab health from him. This is a huge problem when members of the team have voice chat turned off and the only way to communicate to them is to type, which is not very effective in Warframe's fast-paced shooter setting. Suggestion for fix: The best way to fix this would be when trinity casts well of life on an enemy, there would be a special way point put on the enemy, similar to when a player would create a way point when looking at an enemy, however it could be green and read "Well of Life" or something similar, therefore easily communicating to teammates that well of life has been cast and which enemy it has been cast on. Overall, well of life, in its current state, has no real applicable use. It's past time that it was due for a change, and hopefully D.E. will take into the mentioned problems with well of life's current state and possible fixes for these problems.
