This post will get "deleted"? Sorry, I wasn't sure if I was supposed to post in Bloodmage thread or not, thought it was restricted. Next time I will.
"No to Mineral", Mineral armor? You mean Plasma armor? I said Plasma armor.
The argument points against not adding Plasma armor (With the idea of that it would make Bloodmage overpowered, I am guessing) does not make any sense to me.
"A) debuffs are a bit strong right now and BM doesnít have shields", that's actually more the reason why Bloodmage should have Plasma armor.
Plasma armor would replace the Energy shield skill they have. I would keep Reflex Boost (For the sake of people wanting "balance").
Reflex Boost is 4 turns compared to the 3 turn smoke, despite it getting broken down by Azrael's torment, after the 3 turns from smoke, you still get Dex points to spare you can have, perhaps add more scaling, but I don't mind if nothing is changed to it.
Plasma armor does not get broken down by Azrael's torment, and has 4 turns compared to the 3 turn Energy shield. Cyberhunters have multiple ways to reduce Technology/Resistance with their Malfunction, Omega debuff core, Hawk bot, etc.
Yes, the nerf to Botanical Borg was unfortunate, I thought it was fine. On top of that, like someone said, it's still 45k ....
With the idea that "Staff hear only heavy paying players", if anything, I pay a lot of money to ED too. I am not sure if that claim is true. I am just hoping they see this and take it into concideration at least, I'd appreciate it.
I am guessing these points were made with the intention of arguing against having no Plasma armor but....:
"B) not enough damage output when hit by smoke or malf". Yes, Bloodmages barely have any damage options other than, Plasma cannon/Super charge (Tech/focus), or Fireball/Bludgeon (Strength). That's why I saw doing Botantical Borg focus build was the only way for the class (Until they nerfed it...).
"C) Energy regeneration is deathly awful". Yes, you are right, they a have mediocre way of gaining energy, on top of why you can't really use the skill attacks I mentioned above, might as well not even have the skills in that case.
So sorry if I sound rude or irritated, just stressed out right now. I really wish they do some help for the Bloodmage. I believe in "reworks" rather than "nerfing" as a better way of "balancing" things. I hope these ED testers help in as well.
