I can’t be the only one who’s noticed that the Ambra subforum has dried up. Whether it’s because it’s rumored that she’s getting a buff down the road, or if it’s because so many have simply given up on her, I wanted to “bump” her entire character here on the forums, analyze her issues, and make suggested buffs, tweaks. +1 or -1 them, but just talk about her.
Weaknesses and suggested fixes:
Extremely limited range AND low damage. Yes, I know. Beaten to death.
Please increase range/damage. If you must, remove auto-tracking and make it a more skill-based beam weapon.
Weak, limited healing via sunspots early on, and a helix-mandatory also mediocre healing. Combined, they still don’t equal other healers by default. Make her beam heal by default, and replace the healing helix or make it improve heal strength.
Make healing targets with staff generate heat.
Sunspots are too weak. Buff health, smaller hitbox, something!
Helix option where staff hits for more damage, but burns all heat at once: Increase damage / decrease animation time All of the hoopla is nowhere near worth the damage it puts out. Especially when you can take fireballs as an alternative, this one looks a bit shabby.
Other suggestions? I may come back with more.
