It would be great if they change bbv to be centered on your character instead of a static spot on the ground. Could even get a cool animation where the fetish that are bbv sit on your shoulders or something like that. For such a long cool down it is such a waste to have it be effective in only one area and the movement speed buff it gives is completely useless as is.Chuck
, I've changed my mind, I completely agree with this now. A BBV that follows you would be so much more useful. It would enable it so that it reaches its full potential. No more worrying about monsters running away or asking teammates to step in.What if Ghost Trance made everyone in the ritual immune to cc effects?
Great ideas for Zombie Charger MCP and Jibikao.
, Wouldn't Wizards need more cc due to the lack of meatshields? Plus Blizzard is a costly spell that does not overlap. I think we ought to leave immolizing effects to powerful skills similar to the Blizzard 80% is good enough for GotD. I think WoZ can have immobilize as one of the runes. It will greatly benefit from it. GotD not so much. What I think would be awesome is if GotD was part of Tribal Rites, so it could be cast more often.
Have you seen the upcoming changes to Firebats? It looks like they are taking this skill in the right direction. They are gona buff damage and increase the initial cost to 220 mana and lower the channel cost to 66 mana. This is good in itself but also great for a fetish build. More fetishes = more distraction = longer Fire bat cast duration = more DPS (even when solo) = happy WDs :)
, originally Firebomb was designed to be a costly, high damage spell. They later redesigned it as a primary. I think the "reduction in mana cost" are the fossilized remains of the old design.
It also seems like Acid Cloud Crit Chance increase and Zombie Bear Cost Reduction were supposed to be reversed. Higher crit chance for Bears and lower cost of AC is how I see it. Because the cost reduction helps AC more than Bears. And CHC benefits Bears more than AC.
I haven't played the fire build much but with the upcoming changes to Firebats, I think Fire builds will become more viable.
Looks like we have quite a bit of material stacked up here for another update, thanks to everyone who pitched in their ideas especially Jibikao. Get ready for more critiques!
