After a few days brooding in another forum I wanted to take advantage of the testing for the new Fire revamp. Here are some points I want to make: ·Ice oNew Power Interaction Damage over Time Field §This will no longer stack with itself and will no longer stop itself from doing all damage when trying to be reapplied. This affects Glacial Flash, Arctic Gust, Freeze Wave, Avalanche, Shatter Restraints, and Resonating Gale. Increased the damage. oArctic Gust: §The visual effects for Arctic Gust will now play correctly while in Ice Elemental form. oFrostblast: §Now does more damage to Rooted, Burning, Frostbitten, and Electrified enemies. oHibernation: §The visual effects will now show properly on use. oIce Armor: §Players now have 50% DPS bonus the entire time you are in Ice Armor instead of 40%. §Players are now properly buffed with Defense, Toughness, and Control Resistance while in Tank Role. These buffs cannot be overwritten for the first 48 seconds by other Tank powers. If you cast a power to get the buffs during the last 12 seconds it will be refreshed and stay on you when Ice Armor falls off. §Players no longer have to cast Ice Bash, Cold Snap, or Reflection a sixth time to get the buffs. You get them at the same time the Ice Armor is applied. §Using a power that gives a 60% DPS buff (Frostblast) will give you the extra 10% while in Ice Armor and will work with Enduring Damage Tactical Mod until Ice Armor falls off. §Players no longer have a constant 5% Crit Chance and 5% Crit Damage buff while in Ice Armor. oIce Bash: § Gives a 10% Crit Damage and 5% Crit Chance. In Ice Armor it gives 7% Crit Chance instead of 5%. §This is now flagged as beneficial. oImpaling Ice: §Gives 50% Damage bonus instead of 60% since it no longer has the 3 second cast time oReflection: §Damage Absorption now scales to 100% of Dominance + 10000 instead of just a flat 10000 while in Tank role. §Damage Absorption now scales to 100% of Dominance (same) + 100% of Restoration (was 50%) while in DPS role. oResonating Gale: §Added a new Power Interaction DoT field oShatter Restraints: §Damage Absorption now scales to 100% of Dominance (same) + 100% of Restoration. This matches the Gadgets and Mental changes. oWinter Ward: §Damage Absorption now scales to 100% of Dominance (same) + 100% of Restoration . This matches the Gadgets and Mental changes. ·Fire oFireburst: §Will no longer do both the base and its power interaction damage. Damage to Burning, Frostbitten, and Electrified enemies is balanced to the new damage equivalent in Frostblast. oMeteor and Meteor Strike: §The Burning interaction will now stay on your target if they breakout from the knockdown. oSnuff Out: §Now gives 50% Damage bonus instead of 60% since it no longer has the 3 second cast time. There seems to be an imbalance of power reworks going on for Fire. I'm not sure if it is because none of the devs like the class or what but it is definitely being slighted here. As far as improvements go I am not talking from a Tank stand point. If this is why none of the Fire suggestions are being taken please let me know so I can shut up and take another break from the game. I want to keep fire as unique as possible so I won't be asking for powers that are like other powers, however PIs maybe similar. Flashpoint - I'd like to see this power as both a stun, juggle and add its on DoTs to targets. Keeping the dmg bonus. Fiery Weapon - Add a bonus to Might also create a new PI that gives a +Crit chance/ dmg bonus for certain amount of time. I'm thinking 30 seconds OverHeat - Instead of additional power when Immolation is active make it so that using Immo or Flashpoint increases the length of burning. Reignition, Stoke Flames and Burning Determination should reduce all incoming dmg based on Dom for 3 seconds. This should NOT stack Flame Cascade - with the current changes to this power it's main purpose is knock back. With that in mind I'd rather see another power take its place that added additional DoTs on targets or took advantage of DoTs. Mass Detonation - ...Dmg is inconsistant can vary from 50 - 6k...can we have it changed so that the lowest amount is 1k? Wild Fire - Shorten animation to align with Detonation.
