  • The main magus issues

    There are mainly three points that I want to talk about concerning magus :

    1- I know every class in the game should have his speciality and his unique game style , and so I realise that magus is based on stacking dots which will eventually deal a "respectable" amount of damage .But , this "respectable" amount of damage is nothing compared to other classes of the meta now .And what really upsets me the most is that magus doesn't have AOEs , while other classes with AOEs still do more damage against group of mobs and single bosses .Am not asking for AOEs for magus here , but if you cant give him AOEs then atleast make his single target DOTS+bleak spams better than VMs.

    2-There are few skills that are way too bad to be practical for usage :
    -Mental concentration : since u already buffed the asuran skill , I believe that you should make mental concentration has different effects that can be "useful"
    -Fireshield : This skill is supposed to hold aggro when group of mobs attack you , but that small amount of damage reflected isn't enough to hold aggro
    -Crystalizing water spheres : this is a skill that has a chance to apply stun on ur target , but the stun ratio is really too bad even with high macc , I suggest that they make it based in macc or atleast higher the chance of the stun proc.
    -Poison healing skill : To be honest I don't know what it actually does , but I know that it doesn't remove the poison effect from DE's poison and it doesn't even remove the dots from TOA/TOLS/TOE hardmode mobs , I suggest that they make it remove all dots effect , or maybe a "real" chance to remove dots or atleast remove "poison" effect which it doesn't do now.
    -Support of gust : Cool buff , can help melee party mates , but I don't see why would a magus have this skill , I think that he should have something that can actually benefits him rather than atk speed buff .
    -Gale of reflection/Reflection of the soul : Just like others mentioned in other topics , this damage reflected isn't much in PVE *Does it work in pvp tho ?* , I think that this skill should be reworked so it has an actual use of it.
    -Spirit of restoration : this party heal doesn't have any matk scaling so it is stuck at 325hp aoe healing which is nothing nowadays , I think they should make it scale of matk
    -Mental link : this is one of the best passives for magus which converts a percentage of your summoned pet's int/wis to you , BUT as soon as you die the passive is gone so sometimes its kind of useless to use gmfb after dying against a mage coz ur macc is just too low to land on them , I suggest that they remove the effect of Mental link after a while of recalling pet (something like 30 sec atleast)
    -Cyclone lord : it is the best skill for magus , but it would be perfect with better scaling for other skills .
    -Focused gust : it has the same effect as (support of gust) but it slightly worse , maybe they should make it AOE if not then maybe replace it with another "useful" skill
    -Arcane swell : It is a cool atk speed/castspeed buff for whole party but I think it will be better with lower CD
    -Tears of gaia : this skill theory is cool but getting up with 5% hp and buffless I don't see myself using it , since DT buff is a must and 5% hp is too low considering how long the cooldown of this skill is

    These are skill that I feel like "useless" or to be more accurate "lacking" so I think that they should be overseen .

    3- +24 boots reducing 50% of the cc effect is a cool feature and a rewarding prize for upgrading your boots .But as a magus , when most of my damage comes from DOTs , it is really annoying having half of my damage reduced just because of boots , I THINK that +20/+21/+22/+23/+24/+25 boots awakening effect SHOULD only reduce the duration of the CC effects not the DOTs in general .It felt so stupid when my tectonic only did 3 ticks even tho I have +8 skill card.

    Is that some kind of bug with dots and +24 boots? The only dot that comes to mind that the boots should affect are the petrify dot since that' an actual cc

      the only dot that it is "supposed" to be effected is petrify since its an actual CC but unfortunately the +20+ boots effect works against all dots which sucks for a magus -_-

    Poison Healing has worked consistently versus the poison I receive when in Underground

      Right! Which it totally should as it's still a poison. So many skills in this game are broken and ignored =/
