Re: Reduce ranged dps chance to dismount target.

If anything being dismounted should be penalized harder with something like a snare.

There is no mounted combat in RoR. Mounts are a means of transportation and, in my opinion, using them in combat (for example by warbands to flank) should come with a significant risk.

Re: Proc feedback and analysis

Warbands that stack classes with double-edged mechanics should see some return on the risk they are taking, no? BW/Sorc continually morale bombs themselves as they cast - 750 pure damage that goes straight through everything and that can proc every GCD. More and more the advantage these classes get ...

Re: Proc feedback and analysis

Where do all these BW/Sorc nerfs keep coming from?

Have people somehow forgetten these are some of the squishiest classes in the game and continually morale bomb themselves in order to deal damage?

Re: Reduce the tankiness of healers and healer hybrids

You have 2 Guards in a standard party of 6 so if everyone needs Guard to be able to function anywhere near enemies, it just doesn't work. Guard swapping is a staple of group play. I'm sure you know this. Large-scale RvR is perhaps the one setting where Guard swapping isn't a logical option, but my ...

Re: Reduce the tankiness of healers and healer hybrids

3000 armor is NOT a lot of mitigation against enemies who know what they are doing. Healers need to be able to have at least this level of tankiness to survive (which isn't much). If you are failing to kill a healer, you probably have a flaw in your comp, such as lack of armor debuff. I assumed tha...

Re: Reduce the tankiness of healers and healer hybrids

So what class and name do you use when you have trouble killing a healer? This is not really the type of argument I am making, Bozzax, so I'm not sure what you're expecting of me. I'm talking about the general position of healers in the meta (Not "Class A can't beat Class B"). My observat...

Re: Reduce the tankiness of healers and healer hybrids

The argument that healers already have it tough seems an odd one to me. Healers are obviously more survivable than DPS, and DPS have to expose themselves in order to carry out their role. So if the argument is that healers are already struggling, then surely DPS must be unplayable. But it seems obvi...

Re: Reduce the tankiness of healers and healer hybrids

Let me ask you, would you rather.. A. Remove Grimnir's Shield from Rune Priest or B. Give DPS classes cooldowns similar to it? I'm not sure why I would want either of those. Perhaps you could explain what the purpose would be behind the options. Now you mentioned that DPS are forced to go completel...

Re: Reduce the tankiness of healers and healer hybrids

Healers are exempt from this crucial risk-reward balance, and I have yet to hear a compelling reason for why that should be the case. Well how would you solve it? Currently willpower scales very poorly, which is the root cause of the problem. There's no real trade-off for stacking defenses, because...

Re: Reduce the tankiness of healers and healer hybrids

The Healer classes are just well designed and have the tools to function without needing a 250 healing bonus, with maybe dok being an exception. I'm not sure if that is a hallmark of good design. DPS can't stack defenses without gimping their damage. In fact, they need to squeeze out every bit of d...
