    Awakening ranger best ranger, heck off.


    And while it isn't surprising its actually hilarious sad how ignored valk has been.

    Single line patches that change nothing
    "split damage removal" that changes nothing
    weeks of silence after being specifically called out as one of the classes to be focused on.

    Meanwhile everyone and their mom gets at least something.

    You are insulting me :(. Axe is a lot of fun, give it a try :)

    Please don't copy and paste that unformatted text. Next time you can format it properly and/or post it to the witch sub. Thanks!

    Yeah at this point I'm starting to think Valk is their base line class, the one they use as the center point and move all the other classes around. Like the most bang-average class (in PA's eyes) but probably a bit undertuned

    if im reading that translation ok, then u also got some sort of -dp 15 debuff which sounds neat combined with extra ap selfbuff.

    i guess.

    cant really comment coz i cant even make out what got the debuff from those notes, but more options to do it seems like a welcome addition and gives more variety, no?

    If this is true, and there is plenty of data to suggest it is. It's one of the most fd up things Pearl Abyss has ever done. It's essentially breaking the entire scaling of damage for certain classes and making the calculations much more complicated.

    There is absolutely no benefit to doing this and tons of harm. It's forced Pearl Abyss to keep modifying the numbers over and over because they don't work on their own. It's essentially Pearl Abyss trying to sabotage their own game.

    Why can't we just have a simple clean AP scaling the same for ALL classes. God damn it would be nice to just have competent employees programming this.

    Iv'e literally heard multiple people say things like "that class is just bad for (x) area".

    my theory is that they ****ed up coding for summoned objects for one reason or another because its obvious that anything that isnt directly tied to character skills while they are performing them doesnt scale with gear ap bonuses for some reason. strikers and staffies are not he only ones affected by this, but its felt the most on these classes.

    basically everything thats summoned object is suffering from this **** and fixed ap bonues. hell they even did it in successions, see succession blizzard thats stand alone.

    dunno, maybe u used it already and its on cd, or some other reason :D in any case, better to have redundancy than not, no? hard to discuss when we dont know what it is exactly.

    Probably. Your entire damage output is based upon your Gear Score. To ignore your gear score to such a degree is virtually unthinkable. You have to go out of your way to intentionally do something that stupid. The game isn't even focused on Pets/Summon. Those should simply scale to your AP just like regular skills. They should also level like skills and be upgraded so they do the appropriate damage for your level.

    This work is simply a disgrace by Pearl Abyss.

    I highly doubt the skill damage upgrade is based on anything either. I bet the 5% and 10% upgrades are just numbers Pearl Abyss pulled out of their ass. It would require actual work to track and balance them, but why bother when you can just do no work at all and randomly give out RNG % upgrade.
