Aw, shucks.

Not all Excal players are running in with dedicated melee builds, so I think an innate health drain on Exalted Blade would be nice. Especially for players whose frames are built for gunplay (i.e. Redirection, no Rage, etc) so activating EB and being in every enemy's face isn't going to give them free energy that they can regain HP with.

New players have it especially bad, since pressing 4 locks them into melee and they don't have a way of regaining HP. It's a bit of a suicide button at the moment.

 

 

 

By the way, still no fix for EB's waves not scaling from all melee mods. I think Rebecca said that was the design intent in the megathread.

 

EDIT: Yep, she did say that!

The design intent is:

Slash Dash damage scales off of all melee mods.

Exalted Blade damage scales off of all melee mods.

Exalted Blade waves scale off of all melee mods.

Will look to see what's up - if anyone can post details (Damage #'s vs enemies) it'll help troubleshoot! Also include relevant loadout details (i.e my Radiant Finish Augment skews damage numbers, etc).

lame as heck, would've been better to just make it so channeling mods worked regardless with valk and excal....why...BECAUSE WE ARE ALREADY CHANNELING ENERGY :| thankfully i didnt get used to it

 

edit:hell make the channeling mods work while not channeling with EB, but still use up energy...THAT was the bug...it wasnt using energy :| but again, my point still stands, we are already channeling energy so just add a buff so we arent burning through energy like we would normally when using LS (or any channeling mod for that matter) on a melee weapon.

Could we at least have some sort of reduced melee channel energy cost while Exalted blade is active?

I just want it to have SOME sort of buff to melee channeling, I mean, c'mon, Excalibur is creating a sword made out of ENERGY, so why doesn't it have any in-built melee channel buffs?!

Honestly, I just like the melee channel deterioration effect when you kill enemies, feels extremely odd to be stabbing/cutting/slicing them with an energy sword and they just fall over as if it was a regular sword.
