For the reason that launch of Past Gentle, Destiny 2 gamers have had entry to a model new subclass for every Guardian class – one constructed across the new Stasis factor that freezes and shatters ice crystals summoned from darkness. Hunters have discovered themselves notably nicely outfitted within the Crucible, utilizing the brand new Stasis subclass potential Shatterdive, which supplies injury safety and – with the best fragment outfitted – an enormous increase to break output. That potential is getting a fairly main nerf within the subsequent replace, so Hunter mains have to have their enjoyable whereas they will.
Within the newest This Week at Bungie, Bungie fight space lead Tomonori Kinoshita lists the modifications coming to Shatterdive within the subsequent replace with the intention to “preserve subclass decision-making attention-grabbing” – that’s a diplomatic means of claiming that the way in which issues are actually, there’s actually just one viable alternative for Hunters, and that’s Revenant with the Shatterdive facet outfitted. That’s often bolstered by a Whisper of Fissures fragment for added injury and burst radius – the higher to erase all the things within the normal neighborhood when the Hunter comes hurtling down into the ground.
Bungie will likely be reining Shatterdive in considerably with the following replace, and right here’s what’s in retailer.
First, Shatterdive is getting injury falloff in opposition to unfrozen targets, so its usefulness will likely be extra restricted to targets that truly get caught within the preliminary freeze. The max vary is getting slashed from 50 down to five, so it’ll be additional targeted right into a a lot smaller space.
Harm discount is getting halved, from 50% right down to 25%, which is one other nerf that a number of distinguished Future 2 streamers have been asking for over the previous month.
The Whisper of Fissures fragment is getting vary and injury reductions as nicely, as follows:
- Diminished max-min injury vs. non-super gamers from 42-22 to 30-4
- Diminished max-min injury vs. tremendous gamers from 42-22 to 16-2
- Diminished detonation radius vs. gamers from 10m to 9m
As soon as Bungie has an opportunity to see how these modifications fare within the multiplayer game, the studio’s PvP staff will check out how the Stasis Titan’s Behemoth Tremendous stands within the general Crucible hierarchy.
The newest TWAB additionally goes over some modifications to reward drop charges and the way in which you’ll be incomes vendor status as soon as Season 13 kicks off in a month or so.
