So, in the recent patch, they said they buffed these anointments to make them more usable.
“In an effort to increase build diversity, we are buffing a number of Anointments.”
Does anyone consider the airborne or sliding ones to be usable now? Honestly? As in, you’d pick them over most others and/or feel comfortable using them at high mayhem levels?
Looking at the numbers, the sliding fire rate went from 25% to 30%, and the sliding damage went from 40% to 50%. Airborne critical went from 25% to 60%, airborne fire rate went from 25% to 30% and airborne damage went from 30% to 40%.
What the hell, gearbox? I was expecting numbers like 150-200%. These anoints are hard to use reliably and give WAY smaller bonuses than most of the others. Buff them properly or no-one is going to touch them.
Keep in mind,with the right build, I can permanently do 150%-200% extra damage (deathless +150%/50 rad or seein dead +200% builds), not to mention using tactics like “fakegrasping” or rapid rakk attacks for permanent +100% bonuses. Why would I switch to a +40% bonus?
Seriously, though, what WOULD it take players to actually WANT to use these anointments, and get their bonuses while airborne or while sliding?? Let’s get something concrete to show gearbox.
- I’d use them now
- I’d want +100%
- I’d want +150%
- I’d want +200%
- I’d want more than that
EDIT: Extra Poll added.
- If they were increased enough, I’d use them
- Just remove them, I’ll never use them
