I’ve always wanted to use transform, there are so many interesting looks and even interesting skills mob give (although all of em are still weak as hell ofc.)
Demi-Lycan is just better in every way atm, esp now that demi-lycan even has the better duration/cd uptime, and it benefits both of its own stat boost and the +10% crit rate, hp recovery & evasion transform/shapeshift/lycan get. (and transform literally only gets the latter)
(Melstis+laima should benefit transform still, but I don’t see the merit in that combo tbh)
But it’s not my only gripe atm, and this one is far more paradoxical.
Druid has a major crit focus atm, since lycan offers a juicy +60% crit rate and chortasmata boosts crit atk for your entire party for a short duration.
But if I’m reading it correctly then that’s easily counteracted and far more by Chortasmata’s current plant conversion.
This is the full I’m talking about btw, should be accurate assuming imc didn’t change it again:
Basically, it would turn all enemies it debuffs into high crit res mobs, and considering it’s multiplicative with their size modifiers large plant bosses have a 2.5x crit res modifier. (see the tos.guru monster databases)
Which from what I’ve see so far, is just a massive dps loss unless your team intentionally avoids crits. (but not vs plants ofc)
I still do need to see how the new crit formula holds up with a lot of crit rate from gear, which isn’t likely to happen in ktest atm.
But this still this looks like a really bad twist. 1500 crit res lvl 390 bosses? no thanks.
