The strongest beta build

Recommended Posts

It works well as nature godlike. You still have access to enchantments for the self buff to racial for power level. Max might, perception. Some int and con.  Take the acid pen bonus. Necrotic lance and noxious burst are the bread and butter. Forget the staff spell. Use scepter or rod. I did a run through with it and it comes close to evoker for over all damage at the end. There is a lack of 4th level conjurer spell choice which would be a problem after release.

Yeah that... tried it a four times maybe. With that fully functional it would even the odds on overall dps. Cast time on it should be nil to begin with. In conjurer's current state it is close to evoker. It is by no means absolute top tier. I'd give it a 2nd or 3rd tier, directly below evoker. 

 

If the ogre was fixed it would bump transmuter up as well.

 

Enchanter isn't terribly useful except multi-class tank or to add tankiness to a class that isn't tanky.

 

The same tankiness can be said for illusionist with the exception of limited usefulness mixed with rogue. With the current state of gameplay tank has very limited use anyhow. Beta heavily favors strong dps. Resolve is now the go to dump stat. Illusionist currently has probably the second most useful special ability for specialist mages behind the evoker special.

The familiar isn't too bad generally. +3 to a stat, +10% AoE and +1 PL is useful stuff. The randomness of the stat boost sucks though. I would want to choose which familiar I want - like a ranger with his animal companion.

Also it would be nice if you don't need to waste 3 second to cast it, I value alpha strike a lot and if you have to waste your precious time to cast a lvl 1 spell at the begining of combat I think it is a bad move.

Erm... but it has a cast time of 0.5 base. What's your DEX? -500? ;)

I haven't played a Conjurer for years :) Just remember summon familiar has like 3 second cast time or so in beta 1,2.

 

Edit: so I checked it again, 3 second cast time, 4 second recovery time... I would not cast it for the small bonus tbh :)

What?

 

I don't know where you looked that up but here's a screenshot from 30 secs ago from the beta4:

 

c_familiar.png?dl=1

 

0.5 base cast time and 0.0 recovery. Pretty great for a self buff that gives you +3 to a stat, +10% range and AoE and +1PL don't you think? Also lasts more than 100 seconds...

I guess you installed MaxQuest's mod, I didn't install any and it's 3 sec/4 sec here.

Oh ****. You are right. I totally forgot that I reinstalled it the other day. Gods, how embarrassing. Sorry!

 

Then you are totally right: 3 secs is not so nice.

Doesn’t look like we can do without the mod entirely just yet. Summoned weapons at 3s are better, but 1.5s is better still—and recovery at 4s on weapons is just evil.

Fun Fact with summoned weapons: when you summon Concelhaut's Parasitic Touch (is a one-hit summoned weapon that disappears after use) and use it with Taste of the Hunt you will deal good corrosive and raw damage and the weapon will stay with you and not disappear. Wonder it that also happens when you do other primary attacks with it...

Yes. Once casting times are set, they are set for everyone.

Currently working on a Godlike Helwalker/Bleakwalker. All the good fire stuff, plus using Flames of Devotion as an additional melee attack. Needs more work but feels quite powerful atm.


You read my post.
