:speaking_head: Discussion

  • If you think Zappa is well-balanced, too strong, or too weak โ€” why?

  • Are there specific, concrete suggestions youโ€™d make to the game designers to alter Zappa ? Or are there specific reasons you think they should remain unchanged?


Purpose of this thread:

To provide an aggregate place for the topic here on the forum; thus preventing there being a million threads popping up. And to provide an actual set of impartial votes rather than a Ideas & Feature Requests which has no real voting.

In short, to neaten the forum and to give players and outlet for their thoughts on his balance without bogging down the rest of the forum or the other Zappa thread.

As I have said, rayne turning fast indirectly nerfed zappa and to an extent dโ€™art. Frost is not a common DOT and he hits for v fast, which imo was what made him stand out against the other DOT spreaders. Not that much now.
He needs to have a higher DOT, everything has way too much health now
Or if the DOT is not going to increase, turn it into corrosive frost so that he does some AD along the way

how you get that chicking by your name

He is the main reason why I did not bother to pull at the covenant portal this past week.

Got that the same way as you did, through the dude dragon

So sad he is hated, he looks awesome. He used to be a balanced hero for what heโ€™s doing, well only for the month of December when he just arrived in his portal. But now falls behind terribly due to other circumstances like rayne being fast and legendary troops arriving
