Ced23Ric Posted February 1, 2013 Share Posted February 1, 2013 Oh hai! ~a lolcat shakes a snowglobe, eyeballing a frozen fish inside.~ I'll run the door right in and cut to the chase, with the fish on the table before we gut it. Snowglobe is the best ability Digital Extremes has designed for Warframe thus far. It has utility unreached by any other ability. Allow me to explain. What it do: 50 Energy. Creates a translucent globe around you. The globe cannot be shot into, only out of. The globe slows all enemies inside. Lasts a few seconds. What it's able to:It gives you breathing room, takes the heat out of iffy situations. Pun intended. It protects not just you, but your entire team. It slows down horrible melee enemies, like the new Chargers. It can protect the Cryopod. Both they are both cool. Pun intended. It can cover retreats. It can wedge into the thickest firefight to advance. It can clutch hairy situations like no other ability. It can cover revives. It can look pretty. It's affordable enough to build around, expensive enough to not be spammed. It works in every situation, from trash mobs to boss fights. It's such a for enemies in slow motion. Snowglobe has single-handedly made Frost my new favourite frame. It's the key to any door, breaks any difficulty down when I need it - and the beauty of it is, it does not kill. It does not need to. It's power transcends Overload, Crush, Stomp, Javelins, Bladestorm - all of them can't hold a candle to Snowglobe. It's already awesome in soloplay, but in group play, it's beast. My buddies know, when the blizzard blows, hide inside the storm. When they see the globe is up, they know what home feels like. Inside the Snowglobe, we are gods, and all who dare to step into our realm will fall before our feet. I am madly in love with this ability. Good, good, job, Digital Extremes. Tell your animators: Well done. It's pretty. Tell your class designers: Well done. It works like a charm. Tell your concepters: Well done. Snowglobe makes Frost argueably one of the best support frames ever. And that's Snowglobe in a vacuum. If you add Freeze to temporarily silence remote enemies and Wave to AoE lined up enemies, it just gets better. Avalanche is meh, just another mass-stun-damage skill, but Snowglobe ... Snowglobe is my new god and I will be faithful. Thank you. But now that I know what you are capable off, I expect more like this. Teamworkable skills that are not based on damage, but utility. If you revist older frames, always look at Snowglobe. It should be your grand standard of ability design. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
