First off, I wanna say, he’s my third favorite character, and he’s awesome, but there are some problems with him
Most important: Ultimate. His aerial assault is a fantastic move, but if you touch something while activating it, it deactivates and gets 1/2 to full cooldown before you can use it again. This makes it unusable in certain areas in story and certain areas in PvP. Really want this to not happen
Melee: energy blade. Okay, I may be wrong on this, butt from my experience with dashing into a half health galilea and then proceding to have a melee encounter all without being attacked by outside sources and dying while she had more than 1/4 of her health left, I feel like the fact that his melee exists is irreelevant. His gun does more dps at melee range. Please, someone tell me if I’m insane or he really does have a rather weak melee. I’m not saying it would need a big buff, deffinitely below 10%, but from my experience within story and PvP, the left trigger is useless for calderius.
Flash grenade: Doesn’t need to be changed, but until you get the upgrades for it, it seems lacking. I would like personally for the blindness to last longer or for it to deal a bit more damage ONLY before it morphs, no changes needed to barrage, never use mirv so i do not know about that mutation.
Special ability: double jump. Until you add the lateral movement, this ability is useless. I rarely ever jump in the wrong direction so far thatt i need to click the button again to change the direction, and it really doesn’t increase your travel distance unless you jump from reeeally high. It’s not very smooth when activated either, and often reduces accuracy while firing. The mutations are great for it though. Superb. I only wish it started with a little more lateral movement.
Basically, while calderius is a great character overall, he is really weak at the start of the match compared to other dps, like Shayne and Aurrox, Bennedict, pheobe, orendi, even Galilea if you consider her dps, since her dps is good. I can’t find myself wanting to play him over these characters for reasons related to how good he is, only that I like how he plays. I’m sure some people agree and some don’t, but I myself have never faced a calderius that i can’t best with Miko.
