@NotWhoUThink said in Augmenting and Affixing made me quit.:
@Aumires Most people wouldn’t even bat an eye if +defenses were removed from all affixes due to how little they help on UH. And in episode 6 UH content unless you’re using Etoile as a main or sub your going to get 1-3 regardless of affixes with defense. And in NGS both attack and defense affixes are getting changed to to a percentage based increase however things like HP and PP are still mynute increases such as +30 HP and +3 PP meaning people will once again gravitate towards attack affixes considering how much stronger it will be endgame in NGS. And considering how every class is going to be much more mobile in NGS it means the AI will have a more difficult time trying to hit players rendering defenses worse off than attack affixes despite defense affixes also receiving a buff.
Actually with proper end game affixes, you can hit 2k+ hp and 2k+ def easily. Infiltration UQ mobs just straight up do 2 digit to low 3 digit numbers on non-et. The sheer amount of stuff that goes on off-screen in episode 6 is enough to warrant hp/def affixes. Going full attack/pp was only viable until episode 5 where you could feasibly dodge everything.
You're making a lot of assumptions about NGS when things could change just like episode 6 did.
