I just have a few small clarifications :)


quote:

Strike an enemy, absorbing their energy as a percentage of damage done.
If this skill is blocked you will still recover the full amount of energy.


In the first sentence of this suggestion, you are suggesting a version of Static Charge, where we gain a percentage of EP per damage done (heck, even the numbers are roughly similar); however, the second sentence, you say that they STILL gain EP if the skill is blocked. So, are you using a damage done system, or will it be worked into like the old Static Charge used to be where it used raw damage?

The skill will work exactly the same as it does now, however if you get blocked only the energy removed from the opponent will be blocked, and you will still regain the full amount of energy.
That first sentence is exactly the same as the current one, i just added the block-protection and removed the Club-Only requirement (as making any energy drainers weapon specific totally destroys the usability of swords)

I renamed it from Static Smash to Static Blow to follow with the removal of the club requirement (as you dont really smash things with swords).

I'm a bit wary of one of the suggestions - Armor Breaker. As any other offensive debuff, these are almost a must in majority of TM/CH/BH builds, so this would be the same with Mercs and your debuff, therefore, Clubs would be as necessary as they are now - despite Static Blow not having a requirement.
Wouldn't it be possible to, instead, reverse the requirements on your version of Adrenaline Rush and Armor Breaker? This would make Swords and Clubs viable for everyone, and you'd have a choice between Maul and Adrenaline Rush (boosted Rage attack), or everything else.

Going onto the topic of the requirements, namely Ultimates, what if there was a requirement on Surgical Strike - including TLMs? Right now, majority of classes have 3 weapon-locked skills, with exception of TMs having 4. Mercs have 2 skills, and TLMs have fallen to mere 1 skill - after Frenzy got changed. Linking to the above paragraph, these requirements would go together - Club and few offensive skills, or go for a Sword but miss out on some crucial skills. Both weapons would have viable builds.

Lastly, Artillery Strike. Would the 90% damage and no double Crit apply to AS only, or all Multis? In other words, unique concept for AS or sharing it between all of them? I'm guessing it's the former, especially due to Support improvement - and how Support raises the chance to Crit.

Apart from that, all of my yes. Mercs were a strategical class in the past, and this would make it even better. Although, it ends up being more tactical than TLMs, which is quite ironic.

Good point with Adrenaline and Armor breaker. As for Artillery, i actually would apply it to every multi because they are currently pretty unused in 2v2, but double crit totally overpowers it on the off chance that it happens (basically a guaranteed win via one luck event). Overload may need some tweaking to adjust for the overload plasma rain synergy.
Weapon requirement on surgical strike is a good idea, but i struggle to find a thematic reason for it to be like that.

My idea is to convert Surgical Strike into a multi for Tac Merc and give both Merc and TLM new ultimates.
One point you're wrong about though is that offensive debuffs are no longer a must in the majority of TM builds. Malfunction has been nearly completely replaced by bludgeon. Your point is still accurate though, and it makes sense.

EDIT: Funnily enough, it was actually Armor Crusher but i was calling it armor breaker anyway. I've renamed it to that to remove the Club-Only thematic naming.
For anybody curious as to why i changed the damage numbers on flat damage skills: They now have very similar scaling to the current versions, but no longer decline in efficiency as you get into the higher ranks. Every skill point should be equally useful as to prevent "Useless levels".

quote:

Although, it ends up being more tactical than TLMs, which is quite ironic.


Just wait till you see what i have in mind for TLM ;)
I'm not going to remake classes unless i can get some serious backing for actual change to happen. If the devs can confirm to me that they are willing to listen, i will continue with the other classes. Especially tech mage. Battery Backup needs to go.

Next Update: New Merc Multi

_____________________________________________________
EDIT: Telluric Slam just happened.
I managed to keep it thematically technology based to keep the same scaling, however it now does physical damage, so we no longer have two Flat-Damage energy ultimates.

I see. Apart from that, I love the concept - and how Dex has some use, at last, apart from Defense and blocking Dex has always been useless for Mercs and TLMs alike, due to no skills directly improving with it!

What do you think about the idea of a type-seeking Ultimate? Sacrifices some of the power, and attacks the weakest one - either Physical or Energy. Or perhaps a mix of both, and compensate for bad synergy - since the opponent may be weak against one - and give it, maybe, *1.1 boost over other Ultimates. We need a bit more unique concept, and stop with the simplicity. Making things simpler is great, but we mustn't forget it's a PvP and strategy game as well. Eh.

EDIT: Wow, while working on spark blitz (yeah yeah i said i wasnt going to remake the other classes yet -_________-) i just realized that massacre STILL has completely random progression.

How does stuff like this get implemented....?


EDIT: Yeah, i can't help but remake cyber hunter. It is turning out to be pretty much the epitome of an advanced class with my ideas.

for your "toning down assimilation" bit
what really bugs me is how much they can return instantly, is enough for low level ultimates at high levels... like you can run a level 3 supercharge, at level 40, which in a tech build, could give VERY easy heal looping as it can deal 800+ damage, and heal you for 250 in the process:/

what i would like to see from the skill, is, capping at 400 energy total regained, but over the course of 4 turns.
perhaps for those 4 turns, damage taken is reduced by 5% to compensate, but it would make it also a lot easier to counter... a regain like that for free should come with certain risks.


apart from that Xen, i love these. I havent been able to work out all the numbers that could be achieved with these builds, but i like the thoughts process. i wont give any numerical feedback on individual skills for fear of looking like an idiot, but well don man :D can you please do one for CH some time soon? i think they too need a overhaul, as they are basically, a tankier, but stronger version of bounty hunter.
the class itself just has too many holes, unless 1 certain build is used :/

Toopy, looks like you were writing that post just as i was adding Cyber Hunter. Prepare to have your mind blown.

The numbers are all based on current numbers used by the game to keep the skills feeling familiar and not too extreme.

The return of Diamond Blades, but not broken and worth using - unlike CheapShot. No complaints there.

Short Circuit, hm. So I debuff the opponent (apply the effect), and it costs me x EP to apply it. Then I pay the EP toll, and deal increased damage by n% (all weapons, no skills?) until it fades (after 4 turns), right? If so, I'm just a bit meh about the EP cost. Lvl 10 is 280 EP + 23x4 = 372 EP. I know it's only working when using your weapons, and cannot be blocked/deflected, but wouldn't that be a bit too much? How about changing it from +20 EP per level, to +15 EP per level? It's a reduction of -45 EP at Lvl 10, down to 327 EP. I don't know, it's hard to guess whether the costs are balanced if we've never had the chance to use a skill like that.

Black Rain is... interesting. Max duration is 4 turns, and the Support reduction is minimal, so it's basically a weak debuff and core disabler. I don't know how balanced that is, after Devs have said there won't be one-counter-to-rule-them-all kind of skill/Bot/core/whatever, whilst this skill does it. Even more so in 2v2, where it could be 4 turns for both players & halved Support reduction. A bit too much at once, if you ask me. 50/50 about it.

Last is Ultranegator. Replaces Defense Matrix and I don't know how efficient it'd be at doing the job. Say -35 Dex from Smoke, I use Lvl 5 Ultra (31%), and all my stats get boosted by +11 (10.85), which isn't going to help me that much + it wouldn't buff the reduced Dex either. It'd likely end up being useless in that situation, or in any situation actually. Just a bit too weak. :/

Dat Ultimate. A skill worth using, over Massacre. <.<

It was a buff. You apply it to yourself. I agree the cost is too high. +15 EP per level sounds fair, while keeping the cost to use it every turn which allows it to be negated similar to poison, but with EP drainers rather than field medic. Also, weapon based skills will apply it, flat damage skills will not. I'm going to slightly lower the base cost as well becuase it costs a turn to activate. It's balanced around being a poison that deals no initial damage, but deals around the same damage as the other poison skills do with their initial hit included over the 4 turns.

I have a solution for that. I'm going to revert it to my original idea. It's a bit wacky, but it's more.... fun ;)

Agreed. I'll buff the numbers up on it. Not too much though, as this skill is almost exclusively designed for 2v2, where you will use this while under the effect of a shield that is negating your debuff anyway. For 1v1 debuffs, you'd likely throw up static barrier and then keep your energy high.
Any input on static barrier ;o

<.< >.> Right, you apply it onto yourself. Yes, I knew that. <.< >.>

I knew I've missed one skill. Replacement for Shadow Arts, it seems. All of my yes, yet again. It's better than SA, and fits with the theme of Energy control (EMP is powerful), but then... Static Charge is garbage. It's useless on tanks and you get very little EP back, even though it's unblockable attack and guaranteed return. I've suggested before, to give 50% defense ignore on Energy return only, so it's at least somewhat decent on tanks. Assimilation has guaranteed return (albeit a bit low, since it also drains EP), Static Smash is blockable but really good, and then there's SC. >_>

Stupid typos. >.>

Thanks for the heads up on static charge, i switched from cyber hunter pretty fast after i came back, for obvious reasons. (TM is OP, but it's also my native class so i don't feel bad about switching to it.)

EDIT: Alright, made some changes.
An important thing to note about black rain is that it can actually lose you the battle if you lower their heal level to a point where they can heal when they previously couldn't.
Massive unpredictability ;)
More creative players will be able to work with their new skillsets, and those that hate it will choose builds that are barely changed when hit with it.

You're fast with thinking up something new. Two solid suggestions already. Pretty much nothing against them. Also, Ultranegator is much more appealing now; small boost in power and lower EP cost did the job. Lastly, dammit - Black Rain sounds hilarious, but also quite effective. Great to skew people's build and gain an advantage. XD

Fun Fact: I did the entirety of cyber hunter (minus plasma armor and static barrier which were already created) directly after adding Telluric Slam. The idea for spark blitz already existed, but it was a double strike clone rather than an ultimate.
Most of the skills are skill cores from the suggestion thread turned into full on scalable skills. I'm glad i made that thread so huge, because it means any time i'm stuck on an idea, i can pop in there to find something.


I'd say we should have static work with shields in exchange for the skill granting no rage, but still consuming the rage bar if you rage with it. Naturally it only adds the element that you hit (so defence for phys, res for energy).
The value would be whatever value is rolled for the damage negation.

EDIT: Although to be fair, i'd rather see total revamps of the entire stat system including logarithmic percentage based def/res. But that's not going to happen.

ok, going through the merc skills only:

i really like some of these actually :) if these were implemented, i would DEFINITELY return to merc!

somethings though i would change:
tone down the stun % since its guaranteed upon a block... id say capping it at 40% is still a little high. have it increase slower.

I REALLY like telluric slam: it could be the counter to chariman platinum core.

the armor breaker i think, upon this inspection is pretty nice:
i will do a full testing on potential max stats though in a bit, might need a minor tweak, or maybe that individual skill would need to be toned back faster than other skills to simply avoid overpowering it

i like what you did with static "smash"
its a solution i have not yet seen on the website and i really approve :)

even adrenaline rush would finally have a use :P

However if all of these were included than i think Merc would be called Tactical merc because of all of its options :P

ill return in a bit with numbers

Currently armor breaker is based around being approximately the same power as the necrosis bot when dexterity is at 80. I definitely appreciate you testing some numbers with it though, as i'm not really sure how that skill would play out in a real battle, especially in 2v2 with how powerful Necrosis can be. Maybe the power would be justified by it being pretty much the only dex scaling skill, but we'll see how it turns out.

I'm going to slightly tone down maul's percentage, and add an interesting little feature to the block part of it.

ok, so according to my calculations, looking at stats degrading values at levels 60, and 85... (it may be 45, i checked the wiki, but couldnt find anything. can anyone clarify this for me? i could rework it)

so: you have the base of 19 stats points, as amerc into dex, at level 1

by level 40, you have 156 stats points for dispersal into dex, and an additional 32 armor/weapons stats points you can put into dex as well.

by this, in total i found that you can have 110 dex/res taken off of your oppnents armour, if i assumed that between 60-85 it was 3 dex/ 1 phys/res
and 4 dex after 85, per point of shield reduction.

im not sure if stat value decrease is a thing anymore as it wasn't on the wiki.

i say 110, is ok, for a decently high investment, but too low for "ALL" dex points to be invested...

i suggest have a starting value of 3 dex/1 stat point, but have it increase by by 1 point per level, and have a 42 stats requirement on a different stat than dex.

i will recalculate using this formula in a few moments.

I went over cyber hunter, and i love it :D

so unique, and different!

im not sure i understand how short circuit works though :/ the rest i like :)

So Armor Breaker remains as Club-only move, or did you forget to remove that from the post?

Still can't get over how good the revamps are. Creative and balanced - usually, you'll only see either one of them, rarely two put together. :p

Static Smash being unblockable is overpowered. This would just dwarf Bounty Hunters and their Static Grenade, and besides, all Energy drains have some uniqueness of their own (e.g Assimilate deals damage, Grenade is unblockable) and no one has a problem with it currently. Unblockable is unnecessary despite the annoying amount of Dex TMs these days. Also, Surgical Strike should not be wasted on becoming a multi. If ED introduces different Ultimates for all classes it might as well let Tactical Merc have Surgical Strike and introduce new Ultimates for all classes. TLM has too many throw away skills (Blood Shield, Field Commander, Atom Smasher were all originally Merc skills that were buffed and Tactical Mercs kept them instead). I find it annoying how TLM skills have in some way become weaker variants of Merc skills so I really think a. Maul should be brought back and b. Mercs should have the same buff skill so at least TLM's would look related to Mercs. I do like everything else in general, however, and at least they introduce much needed thematics to the almost lost cause of 'different' classes.

Do you have proof that every single person is satisfied with it? This is also totally false. Static grenades inequality is that it deals large flat EP damage and both effects are unblockable in exchange for no damage. Assimilations is that it deals 85% weapon damage, but the damage part is blockable, and in exchange for lower energy drain (and sometimes gain) (Ignore battery backup existing, i'm trashing that skill completely when i do mage). Statics would be that it always returns an acceptable amount, in exchange for your opponent being able to block the energy loss on their side.
There is no reason to be against this other than wanting your own personal class to remain ovrpowered. A blocked static smash is a IMMEDIATE loss against any decent player.


quote:

"They usually hit me with it anyway" is not even close to a valid reason. You need to use balancing logic, not personal opinion and bias towards your own class. Energy is way too massively important to allow something that extremely match deciding to be blocked.

FInd me a thematic reason that callign in an airstrike would require a club. Non-weapon specific ultimates are a no-no. I did this for a reason. It's also a very easy animation to adapt toa multi.

Not a chance. No overlap skills other than field medic are allowed. You seem to be under the impression that this remake applies to only these two classes, which is false. It applies to all six, the others just aren't done. Please read the post fully so that you are aware of things like this.

Devs have also made it clear, that they don't want overlapping skills. It hinders balance greatly, such as having old BL - buffed for sake of BMs, and BHs were overpowered a little, so it ended up in a nerf-buff instead. Step by step, and we can have unique classes at last.

Oh, as a note, Devs have promised the evolved classes to have their own Multi and Ultimate - not stealing them from the 3 base classes. This works out perfectly here.

A few notes about multi skills: Multi-Shot is a technology-style skill so i gave it to cyber instead of hunter. Bounty Hunter will be the one with the new ultimate. Very little will be changed on the bounty hunter tree.
I'm actually going to start BH right now since it's very easy to do because the devs did a pretty good job with that class. I've always considered bounty hunter to be one of the most well balanced classes after massacre got toned down from being ridiculousness.


EDIT: Bounty Hunter will be the master of HP. Shadow arts is recieving a MASSIVE buff to bring it up to hybrid armor levels of usefulness.
