    Lightbulb Skills Re-vamp Suggestion [In-depth PvE]

    --------------------------------------


    Hey and welcome to probably the most detailed suggestion I have ever posted.


    I can't see any recent threads about this so I will start.

    This is to increase less popular skills usefulness [and other reasons].

    --------------------------------------

    I am going to suggest buffs in detail for old skills and include details for new skills, for all classes; hopefully very well, and in a way that will resonate with most players.


    Let's begin.

    Sticking to the usual 8 active skill format seems like a good idea so I will stay on that track.
    [I do not wish to rebuild this wheel, rather to simply upgrade it].


    - Some active skills' sub-skills require buffs.

    - Passive skills can be used in a more effective manner than they being used are right now.

    - Some Ultimate and masteries require significant buffs.

    --------------------------------------

    Below I HAVE listed the current skills for each class and labelled those of which I think need a buff, in red, then explained the buff and why it should be added.


    Active skills:



    Warrior:

    - Horn of Renew -
    - Chest Splitter -
    - Axe Throw -
    - Whirlwind -

    - Juggernaut- Taunt effect should be larger, stun resist should apply without charging.
    Why buff: Warrior role is to protect the team, very hard to avoid stuns, rogue razor shield applies anti-stun without charging.
    - Vengeful Blood- STR gained from this skill should be % based, not base.
    Why buff: 50 STR is insignificant to someone with 2000, will give even damage throughout all levels with regards to how much STR someone has (an experienced warrior should know how to activate blood more effectively.)
    - Rallying Cry- Should increase damage reduction by 20% instead of 5%.
    Why buff: Barely used in PvE.
    - Skyward Smash - Replace Effortless Execution with 10% chance to reset cooldown.
    Why buff: Mana ignore is useless.


    Rogue:

    - Shadow Storm Shot -
    - Shadow Piercer -
    - Aimed Shot -
    - Razor Shield -
    - Noxious Bolt -

    - Shadow Veil- Damage buff should scale with player DEX, exploding sub-skill damage should scale to enemy HP.
    Why buff: Damage buff insignificant when paired with processes, sub-skill damage insignificant to zodias mobs etc.
    - Combat Medic- Should provide ally revival, more healing, and boost to XP.
    Why buff: Almost useless in all aspects of PvE, realistically, a "combat medic" may be expected to revive/increase morale of people.
    - Entangling Trap- Damage should scale to enemy HP, pull should trigger 2x as often.
    Why buff: Almost useless in all aspects of hard PvE, Glintstone age is over, most new players without the set, are not interested.



    Sorcerer:

    - Curse -
    - Arcane Shield -
    - Frost Bolt -
    - Fireball -

    - Gale Force- unmatched to rogue shadow piercer.
    Why buff: Ending of charged animation locks sorcerer in place briefly.
    - Time Shift- damage should scale based on enemy hp.
    Why buff: Exploding clock damage insignificant.
    - Lifegiver- should give boost to Ultimate charge time or something more.
    Why buff: Heal unnecessary in most aspects of PvE.
    - Lightning - Explosion damage should deal % damage based upon enemy max HP.
    Why buff: Electrical Discharge is a waste of a skill point if it doesn't deal more damage.

    --------------------------------------

    Passives:



    - ARMOR -
    - DAMAGE -
    - CRITICAL -
    - GOLD LOOT -

    - SPEED - 5% per level, not 1%
    - DEX - Should give 5x more stats to Warrior and Mage.
    - STR - Should give 5x more stats to Rogue and Mage.
    - INT - Should give 5x more stats to Rogue and Warrior.

    --------------------------------------

    Masteries:



    Warrior:

    - Whirlwind -
    - Skyward Smash -
    - Vengeful Blood -
    - Horn of Renew -
    - Juggernaut -

    - Rallying Cry - Should add primary stat instead of STR, and more of it.
    Why buff: Mostly useless skill in PvE.
    - Axe Throw - Increase bleed total damage per level 1%/1.5%/2%/2.5%/3%/3.5%/4%/4.5%/5% of enemy HP.
    Why buff: Only 1 level of the mastery is ever used. Adds choice of where to spend points.
    - Chest Splitter - Should apply heavy bleed on targets that are hit by this 4 times, 1%/1.5%/2%/2.5%/3%/3.5%/4%/4.5%/5% of enemy HP.
    Why buff: Mana ignore is useless for combat. Repeated slices with a knife will cause you to bleed. Adds choice of where to spend points.


    Rogue:

    - Razor Shield -
    - Shadow Storm Shot -
    - Noxious Bolt -
    - Entangling Trap -

    - Shadow Piercer - Provides Invulnerability for 0.15s per skill level, or buff the healing massively.
    Why buff: Small healing is useless.
    - Aimed Shot - increases damage by 2% per skill level.
    Why buff: Mana ignore is useless.
    - Shadow Veil - Increase damage done.
    Why buff: Processes make this skill unfavourable.
    - Combat Medic - Should buff damage instead, 10th skill unlocks revivals.
    Why buff: Mana regen is useless.


    Sorcerer:

    - Fireball -
    - Frost Bolt -
    - Time Shift -
    - Curse -
    - Lifegiver -
    - Arcane Shield -
    - Gale Force -
    - Lightning -


    --------------------------------------

    Ultimates:



    Warrior:

    - Rage -
    - Immortal -

    - Reflective Barrier - Increase duration & reflection damage.
    Why buff: The worst, least favoured Warrior ULT.


    Rogue:

    - UAS - Buff damage 5x.
    Why buff: It is too weak comparative to other classes. [important buff]
    - Refuel -
    - Medicinal Herb - Increase healing, apply to allies and apply an additional buff.
    Why buff: Healing is hardly favoured over damage in most instances. [possible 100% useless ULT]


    Sorcerer:

    - Energize -
    - Meteor Strike -

    - Grand Protection - Should also buff allies and scale to enemy damage.
    Why buff: It is unused in most PvE content.

    --------------------------------------

    Below I will list new skills for each class.



    New active skills:



    Warrior:

    - Grab - Can pick up a mob for 5s, causing panic, then throw it to deal damage to others in a line.

    Cool suggestions.

    Okay, first of all the % buff of Vengeful blood is BIG FAT -1 why? you already have your STR multiplier and it is an ult for a reason, changing it to % can be multiplied and amplified the higher STR you got and should stay as it is, it's a skill.

    Combat medic. Correct me if I am wrong. Is used often in PvP not all skills should be useful on PvE, we already have potions to heal ourselves, healing and reviving are Sorcerers and Warriors jobs, Combat Medic is for single player heal not for a team.

    Adding that Entangling trap 2x is also a good add, although some are still using trap. Cast Trap > Switch to Glint Set > *Pulls* > Switch back to your set.

    Ultimate Aimed Shot, 5x is too much maybe 3x, with 5x we will hit up to 1.6m Damage with Ult that is 12.8k damage now imagine if we proc sunken + pisces. I'm not good at math but we might hit for more than 10m damage.

    Instead of Invisibility, why not Stealth? Cannot be hit (not invulnerable) removes all negative status and adds +15 crit for 2.5 seconds with 15 seconds cooldown.

    +1 for all the new passives you added, very genius.

    Passives for each class should only be applicable in PvE.
    All Warriors passives might work out.
    All Rogue are pretty much useless except the first one, instead of basic attack make it Any Damage Dealt.
    Swap Numb to Sorcerers and Mend to Warriors. Pre-emptive is too OP. AGAIN turning off your Auto Pots is not a good idea even with those passives, you'll get burst(ed) by mobs especially in Zodias campaign maps.

    Rally is good new ult!

    +1 for Ult Aimed Shot 2.0, you just contradicted yourself with this one, -100% armor +1, always critical hit? no, it basically becomes 4x-5x damage.
    Shadow Master? wow! but seems that will only be used most of the time in boss fights which Rogues would rather choose Ult Aimed Shot, but with the new Arcane Helmets things might work out differently this time.

    I enjoyed reading this one! very cool

    I filled in the blanks, stomp is probably my favourite but teleport and revival are also cool.
