Sorc Nerf?

32 posts in this topic

Posted

I was doing some testing in arena after the servers went up.

177 AP sorc vs 67 DP ranger w/ 2k hp.

Midnight stinger -> crowflare/beak kick -> Bonus air attk Dark flame Off cd = ~40% of ranger life gone.

Seems really low. It isn't just us.

 

71 DP sorc vs 155 AP ranger 1.9k HP

Took 5 shotguns to kill me. (started with knockdown)

 

This intended? I understand health pool has increased by a fair margin but we accounted for that with the above testing (Was roughly the same health pre-patch) and the results are drastically different.

I was under the impression, according to the patch notes, that if any damage reduction was visible... it would be when using DF on CD... but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Confirmed nerf. I could Easily one shot people with shard+DoD insta or air combo and they're barely scratching the same people I usually fight. It's weird. 

It's way too low for it to be intentional, the patch notes don't reflect it either. Must be bugged somehow.

No air attack in that combo. You need the second kick (High Kick / Scattering Shadow) or the first hit of Shadow Eruption to cause Floating. Im not sure if you can make it work with dark flames at all, Ultimate Crow Flare is easier for landing the air attack. Also everyone has more HP now if they reset their skills already, so its quite normal that people are a little harder to kill.

 

Edit: nvm, apparently everyone noticed some DF nerf. I didnt try yet and supposed its cause of the HP... but I guess thats not it.

Dark flame was nerfed into the ground.  If you're a ranger, imagine having 1 ability for 90% of your dmg, and putting it on a 6 sec cd, like will of the wind.  Now imagine that after the first usage of that ability, it does 10% of the dmg for the next 6 seconds.  In this example, since you have no other real abilities outside that 1, you can't do anything.  That's the magnitude of this nerf.

I'm ok with dark flame being nerfed, if there were other abilities that can take it's place.  Dark wave is not viable, especially in pvp.  Crowflare is not viable, especially in pve.  And shadow eruption does shit damage, even after the buff, and it has a massive cd, so it's not viable.  Simply put, if they're going to nerf 1 ability, give us real compensation elsewhere.  Because right now, the class is unplayable.

No, it seems like EVERYTHING is doing less damage. Not just dark flame.

It's not only Dark Flame, there are for sure more changes that doesn't show up in the Patch Notes. We running Guild War atm. around 20 vs. 20 and i wasn't able to kill a Single Player. Sorc overall got an extrem Damage Nerf and is pretty broken after this Patch -> switching to Ranger for now.

could it be that we got the decrased PvP damage (for everyone, in general) that was in one of the recent korean (or was it Russian?) patch notes that also included the shadow eruption buff? Maybe we got more than our patch notes say.

Git gud sorc nubs. 

I honestly wish it stays like that for some time. Sorcs spamming 1 button(well 3 at the same time) kill people easy with very low effort telling everyone they are scrubs and they are so good now see how other classes felt. 

So in your words :

I hate to admit it, but i guess your whining payed of.

Well played!

I hope it's not a final adjustment. Because from the looks of it, our PvP damaged got cut by 50%.

At least keep it like that for 1 or 2 weeks. git gud sorcs deserve it :P

The same way Musa's or Maehwa's don't 1 shot with Rising Storm/Moon, why should they have 1 spammable absurd dmg spell? Git gud, and learn to play with other skills.
