    He's a cool idea, but also really poorly designed. Minion master frames will never be useful outside of niche cases because controlled enemy AI units do not do enough damage to enemy AI units. This same criticism also applies to Nekros.

    It's a problem moreso for Nyx than Nekros, seeing as 3 out of 4 of her abilities revolve around taking control of enemy AI.

    Yes, but Nekros has an even greater design flaw. His ultimate literally runs counter to his main purpose. Nekros is primarily used for Survival missions, where he can reroll drop tables for life support. His minions take up enemy spawn slots, reducing the number of enemies that can spawn at once, which is the last thing you want in Survival.

    What, seriously? That's wild, I've been playing this game for far too long and never knew about that. DE themselves probably don't even know and that doesn't surprise me. I'm sure they'd take a look at it if someone on reddit or the forums screamed loud enough.

    Searching on the issue seems to be inconclusive. They clearly know it is a community topic, but it may be a myth. I've heard it in groups and from popular youtubers, but it would seem that the evidence may point towards it not being the case. 

    I'm actually curious now.

    Meh all you do with Nekros is press 3 anyway.

    If you want to get Revenant you need rank 2 with the Quills and buy the mask from Nakak in Cestus, then farm bounties in the plains.

    Having controlled minions do direct damage is not the purpose of his 1 ability. Controlled minions spread the effect to others and when they die they leave behind a pillar of energy that does damage. They also increase the effects of his 3 abilities compared to non-controlled enemies, gaining more health and shields when he dashes through them, and if controlled minions are killed with his 4 ability they leave over shield pick ups. That being said, he seems to be just OK overall so far.

    Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

    Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.
