Nice work. Click Click buff will be excellent

What’s the base amount for that?
Edit: alright, found it. It’s 380% Gonna test it after Hotfix bc sounds good :slight_smile:

Still think click click works the wrong way but nice buff still.

How about an animation reduction for getting in and out of IB?

That Specialist Bear buff… YES! By the way, does anybody know if equipping two different augments of the same weapon counts as the same weapon or different ones. For instance, nuke on the right hard point and homing rockets on the left.

The Click, Click buff seems nice although the skill still seems odd for that tree.

Can we get inscreased chances for dedicated and specific loot next time? Farming loot based on world drops is not that fun.

OH MY GOD.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

Specialist bear should apply regardless of picking two weapons or not

Also Vamypre should work with all IB weapons not just splash. It makes non splash weapons non viable in mayhem 4 . You can’t use non splash weapons

But I’M SO HAPPY you are finally fixing moze especislly IB. Please convey my deepest thanks to the devs!!

Fyi the trial com drops event should be made permanent . It’s hard enough to farm anyways

click click it’s designed to be used with weapons that have a low base mag and are emptying at a very slow rate once you invest enough in BM. It is not designed to be used with, for example, vladof guns (tho you can by abusing the ammo regen mechanic).
*Edited because english is hard.

@Noelle_GBX, first of all, thank you. As you guys are now working on Moze and IB, is there any plan to allow IB itself to benefit from vampyr with weapons that are not dealing splash damage? Buffs are always welcome, but w/o using vanquisher pods, explosive miniguns or whatnot IB has no way to regen its armor!

edit number 2: as IB can’t benefit from short fuse ATM, a simple fix would be to just allow IB to benefit from this capstone and add a healt regen perk to it ;D

Aw yis, this sounds great!

Love the moze buffs!
Will we see buffs for Fl4k"s pets in the future?

Even more significant is the reload time decrease. Imo 6 second reload after each shot was way too long

Nice nice nice.

Any words on fixing the 160% splash anointment? Currently it increases your shields by 75%.
Or is this intentional?

I understand how it works ta, and I still think it’s the wrong way round.

With regards to loot drops - how about just making them right across the board instead of having to have ‘events’ every week? Dedicated drops, rare chests, the takedown etc. should reward accordingly. Even after all these ‘events’ running SS or Graveward to get anything is still your best option - while hoping that somewhere in a sea of useless legendaries is that one thing you were after.

Let’s also stop calling a tweak to drop rates an ‘event’. If this is the bar then I altered my alarm clock and my central heating today - so welcome to my event peeps.

Doubling this. Can we expect a touch up to FL4K’s pets for Mayhem 2.0?

THIS. LISTEN TO THIS MAN HES A FELLOW IB ENTHUSIAST

imo of all the changes IB needs , it’s this. Its not fair to any of his non splash damage on M4. Without them being able to heal like splash weapons then they are a novelty at best. It’s a waste

We don’t have anything for this at this time.

Of all the things moze needs fixed, this is the one you home in on ?

Congrats Moze mains! :partying_face:

Maybe now the Zane jealousy/hate will stop? Then again maybe not because being as good looking as Zane is a siren call to haters! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

I main both zane and moze and stopped playing Zane when I realized hes invincible and there’s literally no way for me to improve his build nor would I want to. It got boring and stale .

I dont want moze to be easy mode zane 2.0, however I do want her to survive being one shotted and IB to be stronger than moze in DPS and survivability at M4 and those are reasonable expectations IMO
