So in my opinion. These are the worst design of an enemy in any game I’ve ever played. That is not an exaggeration, a joke, or embellishment. It’s how I honestly feel. Being in my 40’s I’ve played a lot of games, including looter-shooters/mmo’s etc. I’ve experience a ton of enemy mechanics.
Anointed Militant’s mechanics are anti-fun, non-counter-able and just plain frustrating. In MH4 this is now exaggerated ten fold.
I watch a lot of videos from friends, and a lot of various streams. Every single person I’ve ever seen encounter this enemy spends the whole time saying how annoying and frustrating they are.
Here are some direct quotes: “This is not fun”, “This enemy is so stupid”, “This is so annoying”, “Militants should be removed from the game”, “OMG why are you so annoying”, "“Immune immune immune immune”, “WHY does it spam it’s fire attack over and over”, “This is the worst designed enemy ever”, “GBX please remove this from the game”, “Why GBX?”, “This makes me want to exit the game”, “Why do I have to spend the whole fight waiting for it to stop cheating?”, the list can go on all day of actual things I’ve heard people say to express just how stupid this enemy is.
It’s been brought up on this forum and reddit many times before. But gets seemingly ignored by GBX and they have never adjusted them. I hope it’s not a pride thing and it’s just been a priority thing.
I would be most happy to just see this failure of an experimental enemy deleted from the game never to be seen or mentioned again. An adjustment at least would help, put a 1 minute cooldown on that damn overpowered fire attack. And make it so it’s not always holding the stupid shield. AND fix it so you can actually see the dang shield.
Tonight I spent 10 minutes fighting this one enemy in a simple mobbing scenario only because every time I came into it’s LOS it went invulnerable with fire spam. I’m SO tired of it. PLEASE GEARBOX!
@Noelle_GBX please pretty please make sure this gets seen by someone important! Please <3
