    With armor penalties locking out your mage spells anyway, and armor being as beefy as it is now... what do we need it for again? Damage cap increase? Get rid of that too & make melee increased across the board.

    Darkfall was supposed to be a game without limitations, they didn't make it a two-class game where one of the classes locks out half the abilities until they were basically giving up.

    Destroyer was a bandaid fix back when Magic had all kinds of advantages that were later drastically nerfed / fixed (for example aoe magic splash DOING FULL damage AND even doing back damage bonus if u shot it to the side when someone was larrying),


    BPG has consistently buffed Destroyer directly (starting in alpha when they let them run an extra archery specialization) AND further nerfed magic compared to what it was in 2012.


    They also made high end gear like Infernal/Dragon/ rank 70 weapons easier to get AND in the case of R70 melee more powerful. Not to mention they made Q5 and Q4 enchanting mats waaay easier to get through combination upgrades from lower tiers.


    That combination took Destroyer from being slightly OP in DF1, (but ONLY in the hands of the very best players who also risked good gear or had a pocket haste/healer), to straight broken face roll OP in RoA.



    I have always advocated the removal of destroyer and mage killer and then the balancing of base melee/archery + a couple new melee and archery attacks.



    But at this point I have zero confidence in BPG being able to do that so I'd settle for a destroyer bonus damage nerf and or Eyerot and Toxic being reverted to its 2012 status.


    Also people arguably die a little too quickly anyway. Bad players especially.


    It's hard enough getting people to stick around when it's a zero sum game (IE: losers of fights aren't able to actually inflict any economic damage on the winning side), but if they're getting dirt napped like dogs before they can even have any fun in the fight... ofcourse they're going to leave.



    Everything I just said is irrelevant though, because I have been saying it for years and nothing been done.


    BPG is either unwilling to listen or incapable of actually fixing any fundamental problems in RoA. They literally just throw a coat of paint on the rotten foundation and expect people to buy what they're selling.


    Whats left of this once great community has no standards, but the MMO audience as a whole certainly does, and they'll NEVER come here unless drastic is done.

    Why are you so butthurt all the time?


    Is it because you have the voice of a female and your ONLY friend is a literal furry?


    It's not even a meme at this point, you're an actual soyboy.

    when u have 25 magic protections? no.

    u need to choose be a tank or a canon, atm heavy is both

    dfo destro:
    really strong damage output/average protections, really fun to play.. dat feeling stickyback for 90 dmg - high player skill needed.
    (notable players: itwas luck, magnetic man, etc)

    ps: eye rot lower cd, wof lower cd, hybrid players, mana shield, long debuffs and crap foods are in game.



    roa destro:
    high damage/high protections, really boring and cheese to play..
    dat moment when u realize that u just need to parry, land 15% of ur arrows and spam left click like a crazy dog - brainded player skill needed. (notable players: yomi, animal, bug eater maryjane.)



    (i always wonder what Luck thinks watching these videos and the current state of "destros")

    Honestly, it isn't cheese.

    People just seem to forget what it was like to fight against destros in team fights with 4 minute haste/rapid shot while they did 60-70 damage to the back with bow shots, 90 damage to the back with 2handers, and hit people for 112-120 damage off their mount with good transmuted swords.

    Right but you do realize you can literally wheelchair a destro as a mage. For the life of me i dunno why people arent spamming debuffs in a wof or when knocked up. Ill heal impale damage off i can only panacea once every 3 years. Fyi I was good before combat changes bet!
