    Having powers be as bad as elec and nature were for that long is something I never want to see again. Those were dark days for DC lol

    I would hope that any "Re-balancing" be held off until all Powers have had an extensive run through.

    Maybe back up this claim with a post with the devs confirming this?

    Not really, sure if you go through the tunnels yea but if you do the raid straight up you will have different outcomes with some powers.

    I agree with this 100%, it takes time to truly find out where everything sits. Only things that are clearly out of line should get minor adjustments at this time.

    Also someone might just have more sp and understand their loadout more than the next guy so maybe their power just appears more
    OP, content also plays its role on how well a power may stand out over others. Take everything into consideration and do real test runs against players who have equal stats as you. just pugging up or doing lfg and seeing someone out dps you and then saying "that power needs a nerf" is the wrong way to go about it.

    im munitions a power nobody hardly speaks on i come out on top 99% of the time i have over 300 sp and put together a loadout that ive seen nobody use yet except my league mate who runs it because we actually put the time in on the sparing targets to figure it out i didnt rely on youtube for it. i wouldnt recommend youtube either because alot of them are very nooby and still dont even have a clue weapon attack buffs shouldnt be used for play from the tray style.

    all in all maybe there are 1 or 2 powers maybe over performing i dont even know i hear rage i hear earth or whatever at the end of the day just keep experimenting, keep going for sp, and continue learning your power and then youll see the game is fairly balanced. Dont keep switching powers because you run into the one guy who sets himself apart on the scoreboard because they most likely have better stats and know how to use their power.

    The revamp hasnt even been out a month yet and people are in panic mode lol be patient this isnt a minor update its a whole new revamp to get acquainted too

    All I know is that I don't even know what type of rotation I haven't done or tried with sorcery DPSing and sure slowly but surely I'm getting better with each change but the change is almost to its peak and I'm still atleast a mil or two behind electric Earth nature Rage ice and just about any other power I've seen. I understand it takes time to get to know your power but by the looks of it every power but sorcery has found it.

    So, a whole 8 days and people are already crying because one power outperforms another. I call bs. Every power has a load out that is effective. Some are super easy. Others are more advanced. Jack hammer does not hit nearly as hard as other powers do. If you can't see that, it simply means you either have not figured it out or you currently don't know what your doing.

    I have tested most of the powers and tell you for a fact all have benefit damage. Earth is one of the lowest hitting powers in the game.

    LeTs stop worrying about nerfing powers to make you feel good about yourself and learn how to use the one you have and make it work...because it does.

    Your numbers are wrong because you don't know how to put together loadout

    I didn't say anything about cookies, bro. It nerfs your power regeneration significantly. For high consumption powers, that's a problem. For other powers like nature and elec, there's better options for your hotbar than RSK. For most powers, not all, RSK is a waste. 500 DPS is potatoes compared to the alternatives I see in a lot of YouTube loadouts.

    Hard light

    All hit way harder than earth.
    Earth was on par with Atomic and Celestial.

    Munitions was the worst. But I am still trying to figure out a load out for munitions and quantum.

    Some of these require Focus super power while other require hybrid.

    There is nothing wrong with the powers. It's the user who are in error.

    We can have this argument all day. act of the matter is ever power has an advantage somewhere.

    This reminds me of all the cry babies back in the old days who were whinning about the pvp role buff rps where each role had an advantage over the other.

    Casuals cried so much til it got removed.
    There was nothing wrong with it. Plenty of times you could beat a role that had an advantage over you. It took strategy to win.

    It takes strategy here as well. Figure it out bro.

    well then there are alot of testers who cant put together a loadout considering the feedback
  16. DC REBIRTH Well-Known Player

    Your probably right...

    Mepps, Dev team...pls don't fall for this.....

    I think you guys are missing the point here. The devs aren't eliminating the fact that some powers are activated at mid-range. They seem to be eliminating any kind of a damage buff for them compared to other ranged powers. Fireburst, for example, doesn't hit harder than another ranged power that costs 400 does it? It's damage is calculated by cast time + power cost + no CC effects as far as I can tell.

    Of course, if Crappy has mathematical data that that's not the case, then maybe the devs changed their mind and didn't tell anyone, lol.

    Also, definite +1 on the power back from the dummies. Seriously, not all of us have three computers so we can use troll bots (like most of the testers were doing on test) to try out rotations. It's really important because people need to have an idea what they want to run (and which specialization suits it the best) before they start modding.

    Also, another thing people need to keep in mind regarding top dps numbers is that latency plays a huge part. If your internet connection is taking a second longer to start a power than someone else, it really adds up at the end of the fight. So, as long as your group is completing content, you probably don't need to worry a ton as long as you're only a couple mil behind.

    Thats is right but the guys u quoted tried to explain to the guy who started this conversation the exact same thing.

    I mean, you beating your earth numbers doesn't necessarily mean the other powers are better than earth. It may mean that you aren't doing that great with earth yet.
