    Lightbulb Can we get a CD on Flamespear?

    I think a nice 5-10 second cooldown would put this currently lopsided class back into something that makes a bit of sense.

    I personally love the idea of giving a warrior line that affords a bit of ranged utility, but currently flamespear is putting out enough DPS to compete with any ranged class while leaving the warrior mobile, still able in melee, high HP, high defense.

    Thoughts?

    It's a pretty big contributing factor. It's like saying charges aren't what makes sabos overpowered, it's detonate.

    You do know out of all their spears the flame one is the least impressive right?

    LoL I thought this was a Saboteur nerf post.

    And the whine continues.

    Nerf Nerf Nerf Nerf. Flamespear has been NERFED . Too bad it will do more direct damage now instead of a DoT that has bonuses to it .
    Look out for Flame Burst

    Fiery burst and Rift Surge are the bigger killers. I'd prefer a cooldown than removing the DoT, make them fight in close range and EARN those abilities.

    There has been a steady flow of leaked alpha patch notes. Not that hard to find with a simple google search. I would post a link, but don't wanna risk a ban so close to live.

    All accounts ive heard is that it does less direct damage also.

    Really, if the numbers ive heard are true, its about equivalent to the strikes in damage output now, which i suppose is fine.

    It should be a viable primary attack though, as the entire rift blade lore is the fact that the guy could fight from range or melee equally well. Not 'a melee class with a few ranged attacks'.

    Every alpha note released gets leaked


    and yes, most of what's been said has been stated on the currently available alpha notes. That does not mean however they will not change anything prior to release.

    That sounds good, but when it's hitting more then other ranged dps, and while sitting in plate or even while wearing a shield, theres a problem, heck why not wear two shields at that.

    Keep in mind that

    1. Mages are gimped
    2. Rogues have a 1 second GCD, warriors have a 1.5 second GCD.

    In order to do equivalent damage to a rogue attack a warrior attack would need to do 50% more damage.

    Wow, just wow. This is the worst balance suggestion i have seen so far. A cd on flamespear would pretty much destroy the whole soul which is a spear focused one to begin with.

    Saboterus are too strong, put a CD on their bombs k lol?
