@Jamesmor said in NG Force - Useless Passive?:
the skill is not exactly useless but is kind of missleading with the description, there are some moments that you will not attack like in big bosses fights when they gonna use their powerful AoE attack and with force if you are using rods then blocking is the best alternative, this skill works with the block to gain more pp regen.
but if you are not good blocking then yeah this skill won't work with you.
It doesn't actually trigger when you use rod action to block so I don't quite get what you're saying here unless you mean it's like a fall back for anticipating a block then not needing to? Or something?
Either way I do agree with OP that this is a fairly useless. If you stop attacking it's a DPS loss when already have terrible DPS and have to stay in rotation to even keep up with the gunner classes. If you gain no benefit when dashing, dodging, or blocking, well then then it's a DPS loss and a deterrent to using your defensive options. But where the skill come to the point of borderline "useless" is when we have the options to use our normal attacks which back about the same amount, and Rod block to regain PP.
The only real use is to regain some PP after combat assuming you didn't immediately start dashing to the next area. Or when you're out of PP and you keep pressing the button until the delay triggers and gives you back another hit.
This skill would be FAR more useful if dash, evade, and rod block didn't negate it's activation.
