FOCUS 1D: Rage Retaliation
« on: October 04, 2013, 10:36:45 PM »
When you are struck by a nearby enemy, your inner rage physically manifests and retaliates against that foe. Damage is equal to 120% of your weapon's DPS. Individual targets can only be hit once per second at most.
Minimum time between attacks: 2 seconds

and

Damage is increased to 160% of your weapon's DPS. No delay between attacks.


Lets discuss is this where it should be, should it be changed, and if it should, what can we think of that will not CHANGE the skill from what it is, or it unbalanced?

At the very least the points scaling have to change. It can only proc once per sec and adding 6 points already reduces the CD to 1s. No reason to put anymore points after that.

I see, individual attacks... so it can hit multiple targets 1 time each every 1 second

Ya previously the no CD was too OP cause even fire on the floor activates it making bosses take constant damage. So runic patch the 1s CD in, but forget to change how the skill scales.

Yes I heard about that before.
I am not sure if this skill can proc blood hunger. If not, maybe we can start from here.

I'm not totally sure. I believe RR uses an affix to deal the WDPS damage, and I believe affix damage cannot crit. Could be wrong, can't check.

Patch it to change the CD to 0.05s? Or something similar? It wouldn't proc excessively, that's a start I think.

I like that!
Maybe the damage should scale by 5% per rank
Start at 105% + 5% per rank = 175%
160% straight seems a lot, seeing as it used to be 120%.

Just need Tier bonuses of some sort.

Actually it already scales.

120% at lv1
160% at lv15

2s cd at lv1
0s cd at lv15 (but capped to 1s)

0.05s is too much. Maybe 0.5. Other than that i dont think it needs much change. Wonder if it can proc on hit effects?
