Ooh I’ve wanted that combo for a while…
Oh boy, get ready for even more Courage teams on PVP.
That’s… alarming and depressing…
If Aspect of Courage was +1 Attack instead of +3, this would not be nearly as much of a problem; Courage would still be by far the most useful guardian, but it wouldn’t be as extreme as at present. Not sure what the reasoning is behind leaving the trait as-is for so long.
While we may touch on Courage later, we are unsure if he is just a symptom of the Bone Dragon problem. Once the Bone Dragon change is released with 3.0 Patch, we will be reviewing the guardians.
Please just compare Courage to Loyalty…
Making a skull attack will (in general, very roughly) trigger at least as often as casting a spell… and both can be set up tactically to happen more often.
On trait effect:
- Loyalty gives +2 Life/Armour (+4 ‘face value’ in the old measures)
- Courage gives +3 Attack/Life (+9 'face value)
Surely they could at least be the other way around, as in Loyalty has +3/+3 and Courage +2/+2. That puts both to a +6 ‘face value’…
(not to digress too far into my views on Guardians balance, sorry)
Back to spoilers:
@yonizaf did you mean to include
…with Captain Skullbeard? I assume he’s legit for next week?
He is. That’s just a standard disclaimer so people don’t think it’s posted by a dev and complain when it changes (apparently a thing). I was asked by a dev to make sure people don’t think my images are official, especially if I post them without a spoiler tag.
If you have a better suggestion for how to say that, that would be great. I’m not a native English speaker, so these things happen and I’m open to feedback.
Maybe it’s fine, it just confused me… but I see what you mean.
I don’t want people to get confused. Are you sure you can’t think of any way to improve on that?
You could write:
This spoiler image is fan-assembled from draft game content, and not officially sanctioned by the developers.
That’s a bit long, especially if I also want to include it in the image itself.
For now I think I’ll go with: “This spoiler image is fan-assembled from game files, and UNOFFICIAL.”. Is that clear enough? Or more improvement needed?
That sounds perfect to me.
If you want to go full-on grammar Nazi, make it “and is UNOFFICIAL” at the end so the two phrases have the same structure.
That’s clear to me.
The third trait is pretty disappointing for a mythic. Burn is so weak later on I never notice when one of my guys are burning but since it’s from Dragon’s Claw I have to have it and I have to fully trait it.
Works for me. And thanks btw for your spoiler efforts.
ill enjoy it as long as there will be an aoe stryx worth magic boost
when i read garuda i think of a common bird in summoners war or in Heroes 3 (etc) series i cant really imagine it as a mythic (best) rarity, blame the games i saw the name first
i didnt see the image but im guessing it will be some kind of unicorn/pegasus
and i like the idea of multicolor link a lot
@Jainus All this talk made me realize I could create fake spoilers as well… you know, something like this:
This spoiler image is TOTALLY FAKE, but you knew that already, didn’t you?
Feel free to make fun of my lame jokes.
Yoni, you’re a legendarily awesome person!
I realise this is not the thread to have this discussion. But assuming an effective bone dragon nerf it is way easier to devise a team to cast a large number of spells (i.e. a looping team) than it is to create a large number of skulls.
