Just came back after a long time and was completely surprised by the Outrage change. I understand they were trying to cut the number of skills under BM by fusing skills together through outrage, but outrage was one of BM’s more unique skills. Is there a reason why they couldn’t just add the new outrage skill as another skill (it’s only 1 skill point anyway) and keep the old outrage?
I’ve heard that they’re trying to cut down on the “autoattack” skills and builds but I sort of saw outrage as a prolonged active skill that was unique to the other BM skills (the uptime wasn’t exactly long enough to use the BM as anything close to a full auto build anyway).
Regardless, I am pretty disappointed. BM feels a little stale with its three frontal AOE’s, and it killed any enchanter/BM synergy. Outrage was a nice skill that functioned off of auto-attack mechanics but ultimately functioned more like a timed AOE like a few of the inquisitor skills. Do people like the new outrage skill? Do people think the old one had to go? Is there a reason we can’t have both?
They could have tacked on the new outrage onto something that already functioned as a passive activatable buff like freeze bullet or tracer, or just make it its own skill for 1 point, but instead had to remove a unique and fun BM skill. Not a fan, but just my opinion.
