Combos Should Inflict Might Damage

    With the new incoming lantern power set.

    Precision, statistically, already deals more damage than might. Now all precision based powers get to combo as well? I think it's time for a change.

    I usually like your ideas, but not this one. Combos should be precision whether it's a weapon combo or a power combo.

    Half of the DPS community, especially those spamming powers like there´s no tomorrow, seem to disagree with you.

    But leaving that aside, I just don´t see what your point is. Going the Prec way of th Might way is an option with all the classes, not just the Lantern ones. With any classes I can use 2 powers in succession to take advantage of the interactions, or I can use the highest power modifier and then use weapon combos for extra Precision, itñs everyone´s choice and nothing in the game forces you to go one way or the other if you don´t want to

    And suffer the power cost? While precision based powers use the power cost of only one move instead.

    your wrong every power cant do that the only powers that let you clip other powers are benificial ones that dont cause damage

    I just like the idea of an even field. If precision users get to combo, I think might users should be able to as well.

    Asking devs to break away from something that actually works fine is always a bad idea. Always.

    why exactally just because its the way it works now? I dont understand why is should do prec damage when your comboing might based powers. Im just curious of the reasoning.

    Except for earth which does have extra power costs.
    I agree with the main point, we should have might based combos (not clipping) that don't cost extra power.
    It would give might based DPS a chance to be on top and would be something different. That being said, I don't think the new power will be combo based. From the DLC's released I've noticed the pattern: combo-> no combo-> combo -> no combo...etc

    You can use precision for weapon combos regardless of power type.

    Why? Its not going to make all the terrible dps suddenly good. If people actually learned how to dps then this wouldn't be an issue. They could start with just learning how to clip a weapon attack with any power. Might powersets can do just as much damage as any other powerset, except gadgets. Given enough power gadgets can pass them all, but only with a huge power consumption.

    Why should combo moves remain exclusive to precision damage? Currently, I don't see this as game breaking but I'm certainly open to enlightenment if you disagree.

    If this were true then we wouldn't have cars, internet, or electricity light bulbs because horses, letters, and candles work.

    Precision damage is to combo powers as might damage is to DOT powers.

    If you think DOT damage is not scaling properly then you are not alone but that does not mean that we need combo based powers that do might damage.
  16. BumblingB I got better.

    I... Don't get your question.

    Are you asking the devs to make all powers might based to even the playing field or are you asking the devs to nerf precision powers? In either case, I don't see that happening ever, considering the uniqueness of the powersets.

    What you should be asking is more of a overhaul of how might scales as it isn't 1:1 with precision.

    Even celestial can drop an effective DoT with of course, the power cost of one move. HL can also drop DoTs.
  18. Decree New Player

    Combos should remain Pre based but I do think might based powers need to get some love.
  19. 13igtyme Devoted Player

    The gear and skill points are a good ratio. The mods, no. Why get 35 might when you can get 36 precision.
  20. Lightful New Player

    It's not a question, it's a suggestion.

    When you combo a move in any power set currently, you'll see white numbers. I think for the new power set, it should be yellow numbers. I believe might based users should also be given the chance to utilize a combo in their focused stat.

    When I stated precision is statistically more effective than might, I was regarding exactly what you stated: "how might scales as it isn't 1:1 with precision"
