Okay so first, any gain a Druid, Wizard or Archer can get, a Swordsman can get as well, and better. Since HP is the most important stat, the difference in hp is what is really important. Not that this is the case, but if at max 1 class has twice the hp of another, that makes them better barring a few bullshit mechanics (Joint Penalty, Reti Net + Damage which I’m told is caused by a bug)
So don’t give me any of that “CON from other sources” crap, Wizards and Archers, and most of all Druids are getting ■■■■■■. There are a few that will be good, but it will be because of insane skills, Bokor - Shadowmancer is gonna be saved by the stuff you mentioned, because it helps it get to a decent amount of hp that allows it’s bullshit to take over and make up for the hp disadvantage. (Mostly anyways, some Swordsman are also BS)
I get that Pardoner is better than it was, but again compare it to the competition, it’s ■■■■, it may or may not be better than itself, but taking it is still basically trolling.
Transform is what made Druid so cool, it was the Cleric version of Sorcerer, because it had so many options that changed how it played, Druid was what you wanted it to be, whether you used it for the tank stats, the summons, the movement speed or the disruption ability and CC (not thorns, pre-rework CC) There were tons of un-viable choices and some were clearly superior options for specific content, but at least it had options. Now you basically take it for Haste. Either turn into the Bunny, or you’re trolling.
@Csiko You’re just being contrary and you don’t know much about me. I have always intended to better my gear, and not being as strong does not hinder my ability to understand how things are. Lycan WAS complained about in Rebuild by the few who played Druid for it’s duration, whether people accept it now or not, the duration was and kind of still is a problem. It’s why we got the attribute to extend it’s duration, it’s also why when it first came out the META was Krivis Druid to extend at the very least the half wolf form.
IMC buffed every single character you made bad decisions on, but the few you got right get nerfed.
@Umineko Thanks, I didn’t know about that, and it does make things a lot better, you’re right about how Cryo functions to, it’s not unreasonable for it to have slightly lower durability since it makes up for it through a unique style of “tanking” and it is a Wizard after all. I also think that buffing the rest of the classes CON ratios would also do a lot to fix the issue, but I think it’s easier to convince IMC to buff Cryo’s than it is to buff all the wizards that suck. Either way they would achieve the same result.
Druid CON value is still bullshit though, of all the classes that need the boost, this is the one that needs it most. Everything is wasted into the worst two stats, the ones that do nothing but damage, and you get far better damage from literally everything else. IMC is even trying to force them into the whole Crit Attack bullshit, where is their DEX and SPR? Those skills give Crit Attack, those are the ones you would want on a Druid if you were willing to accept that skill.
