Title: Rogue AA's
Post by: Agustus on February 04, 2019, 07:16:48 pm
Been testing some Rogue AA's on the Dev server.  I know yall been busy working on AA so some of this may be redundant sorry.

Triple Backstab- Mainly wanted to test this because it requires a double backstab to work and double backstab isnt currently in the game and so it is essentially a dead AA.  I tested to see if it would work anyway and found no evidence it does.

Eternium Blades-  The damage aspect of this AA is working great, but after an hour or so never got the Blade Fury to proc on it.

There are prolly others in the rogue tree that need looking at but didnt get to them yet.

Thanks again for all the hard work its appreciated.

I believe that self-buff procs will not work if the character is #invul

Howdy, back again with some updates.

On live server.  Purchased the rogue 50 Pt. AA- Lethality Advantage and after about 1.5 hours of nonstop killing have yet to see it proc.

Etherium Blades- the proc seems to be working now! Thanks!  I dont have any numbers but seems to be at a rate of about 1%, not sure what the self proc rates are intended to be.

Again thanks for all the hard work yall.

Howdy back after testing the AA changes.

The first thing to notice is the significant change to Etherium Blades damage, but that's not really why I'm here, since I agree that the sustained damage was a little too high on it.  But rogue should be the highest sustained/melee dps class since they have nothing else to offer in the way of utility. 
My main point though is that Lethality Advantage is not working.  It does proc, and at a really low rate of about 1%, but the effect does nothing.  It says it increases weapon damage but it does not.  My thought is that it is not stacking with Etherium Blades modifier or something else.  Maybe a good change would be to +%damage instead of weapon damage?

It would be really fun and nice to have this working to give that burst type damage to help rogue compete in DPS, while not being nearly as broken as the etherium blades damage.

Keep in mind that Lethality Advantage is a 50ptAA and Etherium Blades is a 44ptAA so a rogue has to farm 100AA just to be relevant.

So in closing i think Lethality advantage proc rate needs to be addressed as well as making the effect actually work.

Again Thanks much for yall's hard work!  I love the server.

Just a screenshot of proc rate on Lethality advantage.  After 65 or so backstabs i got 2 procs.
