    Ps3 or PC? Also hold claw used to split after 3. So still a nerf that is not intended. Aka bug. This was already declared by devs. Also on higher content the claw was splitting after 1. Maybe that is part of the bug. Will test more tmro

    I may be mistaken. But didn't HC always split after 2nd target ( third mob )

    I have no physical proof of this aka no old videos. I could go through youtube to try and find it. I could also quote about 10 posts of yours saying it splits after the 3rd.

    I have a video that may help on my channel. It's a Gates run, or the FoS run can be useful as well. I would check it myself but I'm currently at work.

    Warning: Bad Hard Light player on those videos, don't judge me! :(

    My fellow Hard Light players, a fix for fan is in the works! I'll post the link if I'm able to find it.

    In the mean time, does anyone think we should address how we can't use this combo at our normal pace anymore?


    If you use the combo above too quickly, fan will not appear.

    You have to attempt this combo pretty slowly to achieve it, which makes it useless for quick damage.

    After a quick skim, you didn't HC any groups of 3 Adds that I saw, however you did HC one set of 4 adds, each for 205-212ish damage.

    I think in the 5 minute FOS run around 0:49 I HC'd a group of three. Two of the white numbers are crits, except the 365 (1,004/ 416/ 365) I may be off though, since I viewed it from my phone, so apologies if I'm incorrect.

    Edit: So no one gets confused, the numbers we are comparing are from Pre Update 25.

    37 up votes? How many is it going to take for a Dev response? 50? 75?

    Okay, let me add something too. I am not a great HL dps. I only know the basic HL combos. I have 650 Prec and 1670 Might with 106 sp. Coming to the point, with the aforementioned stats, I used to be 2nd or even 1st dps on every single Gates run regardless of who I was running with I always did around 700-800k damage. Now with the same stats and same everything and actually same sp when I am running gates, I am no where near that damage.. I feel pathetic, today's Gates run I was running with a Gadget and Ice dps, I was third on the chart and only had about 300k damage.. really? How can you explain that? I don't understand anything about splitting or eco or whatever people have mentioned before.

    I can tell you this much, "HL was Nerfed hard".

    I will agree this is an awful injustice, but at the same time, I'm hoping when it gets fixed it doesn't get TOO fixed if you know what I mean. Honestly, it was HL players that ruined PVP for me, and I'm in no hurry to see that return. But at the same time, not too crazy about them ruining yet another powerset for the PVE players.

    Even before the nerf, HL were basically useless in PvP...

    They were AFTER you learned how to get past that irriating combo that kept you stun-locked. There's still a lot of people who don't know how to handle that.

    The only combo i know to have been highly irritating from HLs is the Minigun one. Other than that its just us wasting power.

    After careful and thorough investigation, we have confirmed that HL Claw is working as intended, not bugged. We're going to close this thread. Of course, if you'd like to weigh in on whether or not you'd prefer it work differently, please begin or join a thread in the Powers forum.
