Buff impale... That's what I want lol I gave my reasons why up there ^^
Such a cool skill gone to waste :(
If we seriously consider the intended usage of impale via all of the reduce cost items geared for impale you would think it is not a single target / mass destruction skill everyone likes it to be. But rather a spamable utility skill. It would not surpise me if they make it more like Elemental Arrow ( which now can generate Hatred ). Impale might see a low to zero hatred cost and spamable..
see heres the thing about that, if they intend us to turn it into a spamable skill it is still terrible lol which is why on live even with cost reduction gear people prefer elemental arrow. We have so many other spamable skills with similar DPS that have much better AOE. Bola, Frost Arrows, Ball lightning, multishot etc etc.
Impale doesn't have a place as a weak spammable skill when compared to the options already available (which is why nobody uses it), it should be an option up there with the heavy hitters like cluster arrows and spike traps. Right now cluster arrow is in a league of its own and i think if impale even got its cost reduction gear nerfed a bit but its damage output doubled or even tripled it would make it much more attractive and competitive choice versus cluster arrows. With cluster arrows you have more AOE and more damage with impale i could see it being less AOE but slightly less damage but also cost less.
In certain situations one might outshine the other and so on. Thats what we need, another heavy hitting spender that can be a competitive choice versus with cluster arrows and promote more builds. We dont need anymore low dps spamablle AOE skills, we have plenty of those as it is.
