Let’s face it, this game is slowly turning into a powercreep fest at this point, so if you have any ideas on stuffs where “I wish I can go back in time and make this thing not as strong as it is right now”, then let’s lay them down here. I’ll start with mine.
Change his steroid to only be 30% Attack Up. The damage difference between him and other Berserkers are just ridiculous especially considering the fact that he has a battery. In terms of traitless damage, he’s legit the best AoE:
- Saber until Artoria’s buff on 5th anniv
- Archer until Ishtar’s buff around Gilfest
- Lancer until Quirinus comes out
- Mooncancer until Summer Kiara
- Alter Ego
- Foreigner (vs Berserkers lmao)
Revert her NP buff, what even is that damage??? 105k neutral NP Damage on NP5?? She already had the highest NP damage for ST Sabers so why even?
Revert his NP buff. He only needed one because FGO Poster Girl Musashi was outdamaging him vs Dragon, as in terms of neutral damage NP5 Musashi deals 105,247 damage (94,722 to 115,667) while NP5 Sigurd vs Dragon dealt 104,697 damage (94,244 to 115,044) before his buff.
Revert her NP buff. She legit doesn’t need one, she was already the best AoE Archer before due to her damage and 50% battery so why?
Mysterious Heroine X Alter
Revert her NP buff, she now deals more damage than MHX against Saberface Sabers, with MHXA now dealing 206,528 damage (185,875 to 226,975) at NP5 while MHX deals 178,930 damage (161,037 to 196,644).
Also why that Anti-Good? does DW not know how many Good-Alignment Sabers there are? Let’s lay them down:
- Santa Karna
- Tomoe Summer
- Elizabeth Bathory Brave
- Hokusai Summer
- Astolfo Saber
- Ibuki Douji
There’s just so many of them, and there’s no need to give her another advantage like this, she was already a really good ST Berserker with good damage and being compatible with Skadi.
Gaius Julius Caesar
Change his Attack Up on NP to be something else that doesn’t really affect his performance, like Stargen Up or whatever. Being able to gain massive influx of damage to the point where he becomes the 3rd hardest hitting ST Saber (2nd at the time of his buff, just below NP5 Musashi by 1k) in terms of NP damage by dealing 79,099 damage (71,201 to 86,917) just by being lucky or on half HP is really ridiculous, he was already a very strong ST Saber even before his buff due to his buffing potential so while an NP buff is welcome, the ridiculous effect of his luck check is too strong.
Hoo boy, do I hate the fact that he’s just made to be overpowered because of Nasu bias. Let’s lay down what he has alright, He:
- Has Rainbow Cardmod
- Has Starbomb
- Has Stargather
- Has Invul Pierce
- Has 100% Stargen
- Has 100% Critmod that doubles on Invul/Evade
- Has 50% Battery
- Has incredible NP gen on carding due to his Blaze buff
- Has Ignores Defense
- Has Anti-King Passive
- Can loop
■■■■■■■ hell all these combined is just ridiculous.
The thing that I hate about him is that he’s made just to be ridiculously overpowered and overtuned to the next level just because he’s the protagonist of Nasu’s work. They released Ibuki a month before just for her to be a bait and switch and I hate that.
Nero Claudius Bride
Revert her Anti-Sky buff. She doesn’t need it as she was already one of the better ST SSR Sabers due to being compatible with Castoria, it was literally just Nasu “Oh noes my Extra child is now weaker than my other child in terms of looping support??? time to buff her so she has one upper hand in one scenario”.
Revert 2nd NP buff. I hate bait and switches like this as his buff happened very shortly after Galatea’s release, making her outclassed very quick.
Revert her Dragon Reactor Core buff, she was already the strongest AoE Saber due to her having the highest AoE Saber damage and 30% battery combined.
Lol I literally have no idea what to do with her other than just making her not exist in the first place.
The reason why I think that Skadi is somewhat balanced is that outside of quick, she’s basically a one-step-down of Waver, having her battery be one 50% instead of waver’s 50-20-20 distribution and some other stuffs I can’t be arsed to list them all. Sidegraded Waver also seems to be a theme with Reines (post-buff) with her giving a different charge distribution of 50-10-10 or 30-30-10 and giving a single 40% Attack instead of Waver’s 30% party-wide, and some other stuffs again that I can’t be arsed to list.
But Castoria on the other hand is just a better Waver even outside of Arts, giving a better charge distribution of 30-30-50, having easier access to access her own NP due to the party-wide 30% charge and the np gen buff being party-wide, and a more versatile NP buff with the effect being an Attack Up instead of Waver/Reines’ defense down, meaning that it can be carried over between waves and aren’t resisted by stuffs like debuff immunity, etc etc. All these at the loss off… a 10% attack decrease on her charisma, that’s pretty much it oh and some stuffs that I again can’t be arsed to list.
Castoria is broken because she’s the best option in her specialized comp like Skadi, while also being the best option outside of her specialized comp.
I knows a lot of these just sounds like I’m ranting and I’m sorry for that. I’m also aware that DW doesn’t really do nerfs, these are more about stuffs that I wish never happened so this game is less power-creepy as I just want this game to be better.
