This might sound crazy, but what if it was triggered by like, playing a song?
You can cast songs way more often than weaponskilling or shield bashing, bro
I know we can't have one item glowing more often then the others!!! Especially when the other ones actually do something when they glow!
Pathetic as it may be, lets all keep in mind that people creating an afterglow know exactly why they're doing it, and for all intents and purposes, it serves its purpose well.
I'd say the best afterglow troll would be a 100% useless emp like polearm or scythe. The instruments themselves are useful, so those aren't much different from making a glow relic that doesn't use it's ws (spharai, rag, etc.) A lot of mythics are bad, but even than they're still an accomplishment of sorts for people that are super hardcore about a job. Emps like spear just make no sense in any regard, and unlike a claustrum, the troll is not quite as obvious.
Thanks to everyone who helped me out!
Wanted to wait until it was 99 to post it. Bandwagonarok go! (Yes, I know I need Armada Hauberk; working on it)
Sucks that UF/VS were nerfed in no time when Reso is allowed to keep being overpowered for so long.
Is it that overpowered? Not being an ass, that's been one of my fears is it will get nerfed, but doesn't ukko's, catastrophe, new marksman WS come comparably closer ? I guess I just haven't seen how much it out parses other WS's
Axes have half the base damage of great swords; Ruinator is hardly comparable. Victory Smite and Ukko's Fury had high crit rates because they're Empyrean weapon skills. They *should* be better than everything else (as should Relic weapon skills...). The attack penalty is mitigated by Berserk/Last Resort. For the record:
Before adjustment: 30%/50%/80%
Test server version: 15%/25%/40%
Before adjustment: 15%/30%/60%
Test server version: 10%/20%/35%
Ukko's crit rate was redonkulous and needed an adjustment, but there was no need to crush Victory Smite like that. 15/30/45 would have been fine.
Edit: Woops, those weren't the final adjusted values.
Victory Smite: 10/25/45
Victory Smite ended up getting it worse than Ukko's.
