It’s shocking to see the same PG who nurfed Nockmar being over user friendly don’t even care to look at barbends “DATA” are you guys really gonna let this dragon break the game ? @PGNipNap@PGrdm@PGNines
This is no Xul issue. Only a very selected few was able to fly Xul the way he was meant to fly. This is no Xul literally everyone who has Barb walks on bases defended. Same like the reason people gave to get Nockmar nurfed. Why is it different for barbend???
Not a another single dragon that can counter Barb unless it’s another barb. So should everyone els who doesn’t have barb go on a holiday ?
And PG this dragon is like the best reason to see your dragon testing system is broken af
There were a couple of dragons, that broke the game during their prime.
One of the first was Phasmos, then there was Noctua (what a stupid spell kit). Then there was Surt 1.0 - what a disaster. And then there came a bunch of OP hunters like Mordred, Xul, Helminn, Quilleth and now Barbend. Add some others to the mix like Namaka, that one eyed warrior I keep forgetting the name due to my old brain plus Zar and Kry from the last season. PG has some major issues these days, when it comes to balance.
But on a double Oreo long he is likely going to miss quite a few towers because his shots quite often don’t punch through a tower 3D heals.
The 50% damage reduction spell really has no business being on any dragon.
I like that Zah is a good follow up dragon but I’m not really sure how he gets nerfed without being useless. He can do lead if its an Oreo/Earth long but I wouldn’t fly him lead with Barbend my current goto.
Barbend is OP in every category. For me unlimited ammo and healing are the main problems.
4 white spells also seems a bit silly but the way they are designed its hard to imagine anything other than the healing spell going red.
Krygant I don’t have but agree he could do with a smaller nerf. At least his power should fade in the next tier.
His damage mitigation for me is the main issue. High HP and 50% damage reduction.
Mine is specced hp and for me he can survive 3D but likely he will miss large chunks of the base with the way Oreos pull him over. Sometimes with 3x hammer spam I cant even drop the first oreo with all 5 hits - often its my second clip that does it and by then the 2nd oreo is already ramping up
An attack specced Zah might punch oreos faster but I don’t have any attack invoker runes.
I spent 10k rubies to respec a rider, move gear and chisesels for runes so would be annoyed if they made him useless like the other 3 dragons in the tier.
If his HP was significantly lower though then the cloud would have much less HP and die sooner.
but it only costs 5k rubies now. Did you mess up and have to respec it again?
I get not wanting a dragon you’ve invested in to get nerfed. The problem with him though is that his HP is so high that he’ll probably stay around for a while since all of his damage is HP based anyway except for those 3 ammo shots
He doesnt resist howitzers. He resists flaks and beams except for volts. And he’s not that great, his damage is pretty low even with the breath boost. All you have to do is hit him with an ice flak ss once his dodge goes on cd and he’s dead.
