Noob questions on BO

Post#1 » Thu May 16, 2024 9:59 am

I started playing BO after the recent patch and I have some questions. Why BO's initiative is so low? With full HV set you have roughly 170 initiative and looking at the stats from other sets I don't see any significat bonus to initiative, with the exeption of Sentinel. Should I slot some Init talismans to reach 250 or some other value? I know that that the recent change to Crit chance scaling has made Init less important in Crit chance calculation... but 170 initial is damn low. Another question is about two tactics: 'Ave Another One and Dat Was Great. I play mostly solo or 3men. I would really like to sloth both tactics since they make Follow Me Lead and Wot Armor? way more efficient, but I'm really starved for tactics. Usually I slot Rugged, +160 wounds, Gud at Big chopping and as 4th tactic I switch between the punt tactic (mainly for SCs), 'Ave Another One (when i want more damage) and Dat Was Great (when I'm solo). I really feel starved for tactic slots. Loudmouth looks also very nice, does it have a standard 0.25s ICD?

Will I be able to ditch the stat tactics once I get to BiS gear?

Absolutely no need to fill in initiative at all, it's a dead stat. Get reduced chance to get crit stat from any other source instead, initiative is optimized if you get 0 from gear at the moment. It's completely linear and scales increidbly poorly, just don't think about it in any terms other than minimizing it to get more of any other stat.

'Ave Another One and Dat Was Great are junk tactics so don't bother with them. As you said, BO is starved for tactic slots as 2h so there's no room to experiment with tactics as we have to slot the mandatory ones. There aren't really any viable 2h builds for BO atm so you're better off going SnB even in smallscale.
