Long time player here. I fought Mogdrogen, Ravager, Callagadra… all great, difficult bosses.
Why do arcanes exist? after all the many (MANY, a couple thousands) hours of play, i still fait to see their purpose in the game. There is no counter play, no in-game mechanic to prevent it, resist it, and the mechanic itself is disproportionaly one-sided. Why that ability exist at all?? It needs a SERIOUS rework, because for as much as i love this game (i repeat, thousands hours, plural), every, single, time, i meet those heroes, i can’t but feel utter disgust. If they turned skills off temporarly, cool. If they reduce their effectiveness for a period of time, cool. If they interact in any fucking way with the shitton of defensive layers this game has, cool. But it does nothing of that. It just puts you in a “fuck you” position, with no chance to reply or even prevent it. How is it that Crate still considers this a good game design? The entire rest of the game is amazing, what went so wrong here that they fail to see how shit this is, and let it that way for so long?
oh gee idono, move your butt?
use a movement rune if you wanna move quicker
or don’t put yourself in a position where you need to relocate on an arcane mob
or cc it to give yourself a breather
or kill it before it casts its nulli orb
Oh really? Try that in the Morgoneth dungeon. Because a toon able to facetank Callagadra (no exageration, this caracter never kites her), got completely overwelmed by the sudden apperance of a bunch of heroes, among wich was an arcane. Arcane got away, mobs in the way, and voila, dead.
you literally can, that’s how movement runes work…
hell even without a movement rune most monster surrounds don’t form a cement hardened ring and you can use force move to get through - or make a hole and use the corpse as doormat on your way out
I’ve been playing SR recently (not too much in the past) and I adjusted to those Arcanes very quickly and they don’t bother me, but on a caster build not sure about melee.
@el_chanis If you really hate it maybe patch the game so that the Nullification does nothing (I may help with that - just tested that increasing Nullification energy cost makes it unusable by enemies - the purple projectile is there but doesn’t nullify you.)
