Not hating on it, Veteragna did all he could, but build is still average because set doesn't support Vindicator.
My main problem is with the Rifle, why can't we converse 100% of the damage from it is a mystery to me. Just a design flaw, imo, especially when you have Gildor's Pulverizer with 100% conversion.

Every weapon listed in this thread has been deleted for either being OP or UP.

Thank you for your cooperation.


There are definitely a few items in here that were due for some attention. Expect to see changes in v1.0.7.0.

On the topic of swords: besides pierce swords (that are pretty great) we have Mindwarp (which absolutely op) and... that's about it, all other swords suck balls.
Maybe some time I'll remake it with Cadence and see what happens
About swords: I can say many 1H swords are nice, especially dedicated ones. Edge of Death, Crystallym, Reaver's Claw. But I partially agree, many 1H swords are bad at the same time.

For who you have to kill to get this item, it should be significantly better. I would enjoy seeing this receive a hefty buff, and feel it needs one as well.

On the topic of crappy swords: why is pagar's betrayal a sword in the first place? Every single stat on it is a caster stat and would be a natural fit for a caster weapon. I feel like someone is trolling everyone by having made it a sword, disqualifying it from everything that requires a caster weapon. If so, good job I guess, also because this is one of the rare chaos melee items... but of course isn't one.

I genuinely thought it was a dagger for the longest time until just yesterday when i found it was a sword. Definitely should be a dagger in my opinion.

Just don't forget to buff Inquisitor and Forcewave, a class and a skill that were both overlooked by devs for too long!

It might be just better with Soldier and Cadence really, as I said, you did what was possible for an exotic build, not your fault Valdun's Rifle kinda sucks.

I found out when I was looking for alternatives to fang of chton for a chaos dw melee build. This ... thing ... is one of the very few chaos themed one handers, its taking a valuable spot. Insult to injury, a high quality trolling indeed

On valdun: Valdun is still far from being worst, tho. It's not even meme level like Spark of Reality. It's good, just not on the level you expect it to be.

On Mindwarp/swords: Mindwarp might be OP, but it's a necessary evil to make Krieg builds (aka what the newbs will look for), work. Without it, only binders will be able to use Krieg set effectively.

I second this. Really, it's just the low AS bonus and middling skill bonuses that leave it a tad behind the pack of really great sets.
