As much as i agree that BD is overnerfed, mainly because of skewed perceptions...it doesn't add anything to the discussion about archers and how they need to be balanced
It adds a lot, because the BD has always been a stealther killer class and it has been overnerfed. It's a natural law, prey will always flourish when the predators are diminished.
The direct comparison is that an archer can land about 1k dmg in less than 3 secs (from 2k+ loc range) while they felt the urge to nerf an instant cast to 6 secs. SIX seconds. It is just ridicolous.
Sorry, don`t just rely on 6s lifetap and 3 gray healers. Even with a 4s lifetap you wouldn`t be able to overheal the incoming ranger or scout damage.
The value of the healpets were nerfed right from server release, not sure about the kind of damage of the caster pets, i`m sure it was originally cold damage, not body.
Pets do less damage in rvr, lifetap from 4s to 6s. No spacing, no formations.
Yes, the BD is overnerfed, i don`t think it would have an influence on the number of archers on Phoenix, but an original BD would have an influence on the number of BDs, thats for sure. The overall rvr setting makes archers very attractive to play, thats all. Much Keep-warfare from hib + alb, taskzones where they can lure etcetc.
