I usually don’t get weigh in on balance discussions because I’m nowhere near a good player. I’m basically a 1 armed player with 4,000 hours in the game. The idea of nerfing retaliation builds disappoints me for maybe selfish reasons. I have a very hard time playing pianos, or the PoE flask type mode. With about 40 maxed out characters, retals are comfortable enough, but the trade off I’ve found is they seem to be very slow killers, some I made a year or 2 ago don’t work at all. Crate has been great at buffs and not too many nerfs. I keep all my characters and the non-viable ones just have to be rebuilt , which can be very expensive in materials. Whatever they decide I’ll happily accept and be thankful for, but I hope there remains room for players that are nowhere near “elite” and still reach maybe recognized end game…i.e Nemeses, 60 or so SR, some of the Celestials.
Or maybe don’t update your game and create The 1.1.8 Resistance Group in retaliation for the 188.8.131.52 retaliation nerfs.
Next, you make your own 184.108.40.206 patch / mod with various buffs compensating for old nerfs to lure thousands of players.
When eventually all play The Community Patch, has no choice but to abdicate once and for all.
Cold ranged savagery is close to being possible, but needs some +savagery love (can’t wear korba helm and complete stormserpent set; northern wyrm doesn’t give +2 shaman; lightning -> cold to manually balance is then limited to 1 shoulder for 30%). Lord knows pierce can stack savagery to +50 by the time you get items completed somehow, so cold could use some love outside korba weapons carrying it all
Added “Author” and “Game Version” columns so now it’s easier to navigate.
Deleted SR Speedrun, because only one person have submitted them, and i didn’t want to lower the reqs, hence that would be meaningless.
Added a couple of builds that i’ve found on forum since 30th of November, yet i’m more than sure that i missed some of them. Also I almost didn’t add anything from builds people i’ve seen from “”“official (not official)((and now it’s official again, goddammit))”" discord. Sorry for that, my memory is quite a garbage.
Just reminding that submission form is still available and saves me a lot of time.
it’s not all the changes, since i want to introduce major ones when the 1.1.9 is out, so it’s not 1.30 yet.
you might be interested in this updated sheet of mine, and maybe @grey-maybe is interested in merging it:
I have copy-pasted nearly all of the items contained in the GRIMTOOLS links into the sheet
I also have added a new tab, where you fill out your already found items (maybe exported as list from GDStash) and there’s a matching logic in the sheet, which then shows, which items from which builds you already have. An improvement would be, to conditional format the original item columns, not the copied ones, but I didn’t get this working.
