It’s funny - I went into the new DLC completely blind yesterday evening and could not figure for the life of me why my 300/90 OPQ - which previously was totally wrecking face on all enemies - was just barely tickling enemies in my first Guardian Takedown attempt. You guys know I’m not a big math guy, so I figured there must be some reason. Today that answer has become clear to me.
The 300/90 anoint was really, really powerful, but it also helped to unbind Fl4k from the ASE mechanic. Of course, you could still run that if you wanted to, but if you didn’t want to, or when your ASE anoints were down, you still had a really powerful DPS anoint to use. Now, not so much.
It would be nice if they would just leave things alone for a little while in order to give us a chance to wrap our heads around what still is a pretty new game (in the life of a BL game, anyway). But it looks like they are wanting to go more of the “live service” route, not in the sense of MTX but in the sense of the game being in a constant state of flux.
I am just kind of bummed out by the whole thing right now. Sorry for the negativity.
