I know many player don’t consider ‘‘Petrify’’ as an important resistance type but there are monsters does petrify you and it becomes kinda serious when you have ‘‘0’’ petrify resists. No different from Freeze or Stun, it makes the character very vulnerable.
However; the only constellation provides ‘‘Reduced Petrify Duration’’ is Ulo and it’s just %10. There a variety of items that gives this stats and I think they are enough and some of them even grants more than anyone needs.
So I would like to ask from devs to add some ‘‘Reduced Petrify Duration’’ to one maybe two other constellations. Preferable not Blue and Yellow side. Though some damage types have more of this resistance because of their gears; like there are lot’s of petrify resist source for physical builds. But some other builds has almost no source of it.
We have different sources of Stun/Freeze/Slow resist on a few constellations so I’m basically asking to have same options with Petrify resist.
Here my possible candidates(thematic) for adding ‘‘Reduced Petrify Duration’’ stat.
Empty Throne might be a candidate; changing it with %8 Pierce resistance on second node. %10-15 would be enough.
Ghoul is other option; I know it has already a very strong circuit breaker but his legs are a bit weak.
Revenant; it’s a good one all over, but it might be implemented to it’s third node.
Quill; Not bad but imo it’s equal ‘‘Toad’’ is much more useful for many builds, since it provides lifesteal and racial damage. However Quill only provides some elemental damage and %2 DA. Removing 60 health and impelementing ‘‘Reduced Petrify Duration’’ to it’s third node won’t be a balance issue I presume. Pen is mightier than sword?
Hawk or Raven; they are both good options for OA, and they are good for pet builds. Most non-pet builds take Raven because it’s 5 green affinity bonus, since the different from Hawk is just 15 OA and Hawk has %8 crit damage; which is far more valuable stat. Hawk would be more thematic though which can not be petrified easily feature.
I’m open to other suggestion about which constellations can be added this CC resist and we all know the next update will be the last. So I think this issue is related to general balance of the game.
Not sure how many of you will support me but this is more important to me than trying to force devs make DW lightning melee viable etc.
