Alright. So the entire cu happened and combat significantly changed right?
So I respec'd to 4-4-4-4 rifleman/MBH and some medic which was all the points I could use on my toon. I purchase a LLC or whatever its new name is and head out of dantooine mining outpost to grind for master rifleman and get a hang of combat at a higher level.
Alright so the mission is Bol's and some pikets. Descent group of 8 with a healer a ch a few tanks a couple rifleman. I am the highest at level 75. So we start with our first lair. What gives with the near invincibility of rifleman/BH in combat? I drew aggro so many times it was absurd. Apparently you deal alot of damage and you draw the aggro. Talk about totally unbalanced and nonsensical roles. I could easily function in either role of a tank or a long range damage dealer with the rest of the group just took some pot shots. So what?
I was wearing no armor. I was leveling at lightspeed. 1 run out of dantooine doing about 8 missions and I get 75% of the way to master riflemen?
Simplicity. Once in a while you sneak in a kd attack or a snare but for the most part you are content with auto firing your headshot 3 special. I never used a chain of attacks or seemed inclined to rely on any tactics. I am not sure but not having to buff at all seems to make it even worse. I didn't eat food. I didn't wear armor. I didn't worry about distance, stance or position. I mean seriously where is the thought in the fight? Can someone please explain how this is a better system? It seems to me that it is significantly lamer.
Finally what the hell is with the basic weapons pricing? Every gun which to me appears to be an average weapon commonly available is 20k? Not that I cannot afford 20k but for real? That is almost 2 times the pricing pre-cu on the same server. Also why did so much stuff convert so poorly? RIS armor for instance.
It just seems to me to be a bit lacking of substance. Just first impression. maybe as I group more and see more combat it will become more diverse.
