    you know that time when you make a new toon and get help from high CR player that just kills the enemies fast and youre just running along with them and you pretend that you helping but not really.

    that is how i feel during t7 raids, idk what this 193sp is for or this vii mods, just there to look good if someone inspects ur gear? or if someone ask how much SP u have?

    What a helpful comment. Maybe they don't want to heal or even if they do, maybe they'd like to be competitive in damage without having to wait another 1+ years.

    At least he won't have to complain about his powerset underperforming, Electric is still considered one of, if not the best healer power.

    Let's also not forget how unneeded dps are anyways, you wanna gear fast, go heal, someone will always need you.

    Just heal. If you dont want to heal switch powersets, its as simple as that. You see the schedule and help is not coming for electric anytime soon. No need to complain about something that has a high probability of not changing. Remember how long it took last time for electric to get an update.

    Rage is actually pretty good. Melee adds, range bosses. The OP powers sure make it kinda disappointing, but it's still pretty good.

    But I do agree that electricity is pretty bad currently. I was mainly DPS and I'm switching to heals because I don't wanna spend 1 hour in DC.

    Finally something i can answer, IMO it sucks when you're paired with quantum since everything will be dead before you can get warmed up. IT sucks when you use wired and it buffs everyone else and then they kick you for low damage.

    'Electric is still considered one of, if not the best healer power' that's nice and all but why can't both roles be even?

    Yes he asked this question.

    Well sir that would require life to be fair

    it aint fair but dammit i like electric and will be until they unplug the game.

    Being a fan of electric is like being a fan of the 2008 detroit lions.

    Aye aye aye...they almost won a couple of those games.

    See the same thing can be said of Quantum vs Sorcery.
    It'll get there...but it's likely one of the hardest powers to balance out.

    I still remember back when LD came out Electricity was one of the best DPS powers.

    Um, what about sorcery? It is a decent dps power.

    I was replying to the statement "IMO it sucks when you're paired with quantum since everything will be dead before you can get warmed up."

    I have both Quantum and Sorcery toons at 136/137. When on my Quantum toon, so many times I watch TBomb floating away harmlessly since the Sorcery toon already killed everything in a blink of an eye.

    I don't know why but that made me feel better
    Just knowing that it happens to you bubble throwers as well has made my day :)

    "Bubble throwers" HA! Great term
    If you liked that you'll be giddy to know that many times we will trinket up, drop a supply drop and get ready to drop the boom with a super charge rotation only to have the target jump or walk away from it. Your 120k+ hit becomes 6k:mad:

    lol Bubble throwers lol I think the other guy meant that quantum killed everything before he, as electric, could deal any damage, but I could be wrong.
  19. Delta795 New Player

    He did..
    I was pointing out the same thing happens to Q Dps when paired with Sorcery, Earth or Ice

    I definitely heal primarily on my electric toon. I dps on duos mainly. I think electric would benefit simply if they allowed WM crits while the AM is working since you can only get 2-3 combos off while those dots are active anyway. But I have a real low understanding of what that would take behind the scenes wise, so I'm just sayin.

    Anyway, yeah, Sorcery is very strong as far as I can tell. Ice, Gadgets, Earth and Sorcery seem all about even to me currently. I'd say though that Ice looks easiest to achieve said dmg while the others require more activity.

    Either way, gotta just wait it out till we get through these next rounds of power updates and such.
