Another example ranger/force. Can multi rifle/rod, you use your rod to inflict elemental down on a boss, then swap to your rifle for weak bullet, and then either attack with either your rifle or launcher. You can multi more than one weapon, so you could have rifle/launcher on one slot, and rifle/rod on another
Or you could just, use the down to stack tricky capacitor on talis and do more damage with a better sub class cause techter lets you save 5 SP from force tree since their trees are very similar
I hope the bonus goes up to 50% instead of just 10% A main class techter shouldn't be as strong as a main class hunter with a sword.
thats a problem with the hunter tree just sort of sucking atm.
How does setting up a force/techter have to do with how you would use ranger/force?
Force from what I can tell seems like a very god sub for ranger, gives you ton of pp regen, plus the ability to inflict elemental downs, which you can then stack with your weak bullet and main class weapons
The point i was trying to make is why bother with a class that adds a weapon when you can just mix trees with stuff that already has passives for the main weapon you are using. Yeah sure you can sub force and use rod for ranger, but by the time you get a down from status using techs you probably end up doing more damage just using rifle to stack up weak bullet.
only nice multiweapon if going force sub is talis for the weapon action, but you dont need to sub force to use that. If you wanna do a build with downs better off just goign fighter sub and maxing defeat advantage and defeat PP recover and ignoring its weapons entirely because there will never be a time where its better to use them.
IDK i feel like the 10% damage just makes things more linear.
Maybe, maybe not. If you’re trying to do an elemental down by yourself than yeah you may end up doing more damage just using your rifle. But elemental downs stack faster with multiple people doing elemental damage, so in a party that may not be the case, plus with the weapon multi you can still keep weak bullet going. But force doesn’t just give better downs for ranger, it’s also a lot of pp regen, the elemental downs are just a bonus on top of that, and something you would use or not use depending on the situation.
The 10% damage brings us back to your sub class being a support for your main class, this includes ability’s and weapons. The only difference is you will only be using your sub class weapons in specific situations, instead of just playing your sub class like a main class, which is literally what I did with force in beta cause their was basically no penalty for doing that, which tbh was kind of dumb.
