Outriders April Eight Re-Balancing Notes

Common Stability Notes:

  • Historian, bounty hunt, and monster hunt quests not grant Legendary gadgets for every subsequent completion

    • Whereas rewarding gamers for finishing all of the Historian, bounty hunt, and monster hunt quests continues to be our intention, we did observe unintended outcomes when gamers repeated this exercise together with a selected multiplayer bug.

    • With this rewards adjustment we wish to eradicate this exploit behaviour whereas nonetheless making that quest line well worth the effort.

    • Gamers who took benefit of this exploit is not going to be punished.

  • Chem Plant – Expedition time for Gold/Silver/Bronze adjusted to 650 / 1150 / 1500 seconds (Beforehand: 957 / 1303 / 1650)

  • Increase City – Expedition time for Gold/Silver/Bronze adjusted to 390 / 589 / 776 seconds (Beforehand: 422 / 607 / 792)

    • Some Expeditions appear to be too beneficiant of their required completion instances when in comparison with others.

    • We wish to keep away from such disproportionate discrepancies, as we consider making all expeditions viable results in a extra numerous and thus extra attention-grabbing endgame.

Bullet skills (Twisted Rounds, Blighted Rounds and Volcanic Rounds):

Whereas we absolutely intend to offer the overpowered really feel for the most effective builds on the market, we’re additionally dedicated to creating positive that there’s construct range within the high performing builds.

Late within the demo lifecycle, we found a bug on the subject of the bullet augmentation skills harm calculation system. Whereas we fastened this bug, some unexpected imbalances had been sadly launched, which has led to bullet primarily based skills vastly outperforming different abilities. The principle drawback with that is that such bullet primarily based builds require a lot much less funding to make them “high tier”, in comparison with different builds.

To attain this, now we have made a few changes for the Trickster and Technomancer lessons, who profit probably the most from their bullet skills energy. It’s unsure as as to whether these adjustments will show too robust or too weak, so please do think about this to be solely step one, as we’ll proceed monitoring and adjusting them sooner or later. Identical to you, we hope to see extra inspiring and loopy combos of Skills and Mods!

  • The bottom cooldown of the Twisted Rounds ability has elevated to 25 seconds (Beforehand: 16 seconds)

    • Whereas infinite uptime on bullets skills was at all times our intention, it’s supposed to be excessive threat, excessive reward playstyle. Nonetheless, given the present energy of this ability, there’s little or no threat concerned on this skill given its quick cooldown, even when gamers fail to set off ammo replenishment. Rising its cooldown together with adjusting its harm ought to enhance that threat and make this playstyle a extra thrilling expertise.

  • The Trickster’s Hero Tree nodes: – Disruptive Firepower, Scion of Energy, Outrider Executioner – have had their energy decreased to 35% (Beforehand: 50%)

    • The mix of Twisted Rounds’ enhance of firepower on high of the multipliers offered by the category tree result in large will increase of injury dealt by this skill. Whereas we do perceive the satisfaction this type of energy can carry, it’s at the moment vastly outperforming our wildest expectations and we due to this fact have to carry it down a notch.

  • “Weak” standing – Energy decreased to 15% (Beforehand: 25%)

  • The Technomancer Hero Tree node -“Harm Towards Poison” – has had its energy decreased to 15% (Beforehand: 30%)

    • Whereas the Technomancer’s Blighted Rounds don’t present any harm enhance on their very own aside from ignoring armor as Anomaly Harm, they do present a superb instrument for spreading the Weak and Poisonous statuses. which in flip can scale out of proportion.

  • The Pyromancer Hero Tree Node – “Trial of Ashes” – has been decreased 15% further harm (Beforehand: 30%)
