I was building my L22 ranger to go for shattering stance and scatter shots with a bow for the speed, but I understand it has been nerfed recently. I expected a nerf, since it seemed just too powerful, but it seems it has little chance to proc at all now? More like a neat extra than something you can rely upon?
I expect crossbows to be dealt with soon, as they strike me as overpowered. I don't know when they'll address item balance, but bows fancy me more anyway. I prefer the speed.
Totally crippled the crossbow build, hope it's not as bad as the forum implies or I may have to respec to Sharpshooter like everyone else.
DON'T respec to sharpshooter. it's even worse! the dmg has been reduced and you will miss the aoe of the coloumn attakcs so you will be ****ed up against multiple foes at higher level without shatter-stance, wich now is very bad.
well, and i hate x-bow so much. it's so boring slow.
A build safe from re-balancing would be nigh impossible at the moment. To do such a build you would need some constants. With re-balancing the constants become variables, variables which you can't really predict.
