As the game currently is meditate does not allow any impactful ability to be balanced around a shortish cool down (10/20) so long as it exists.
All things that currently seem extremely powerful (claymores W/E, Sprint shield) and things that have been powerful (old frost shot, 1h hammer cleave, long bow) have been further amplified by this skill.
Beta is for testing, its been tested. Its busted, remove and move on.Bump. Remove this spell devs. It is a nice spell to have but you will have impossible time trying to balance this game if you keep to earn Albion Online Silver.The problem is ot the idea of the spell but the 10secs of cooldown it reduces.Probably it should reduce a percentage of spells cooldown so that it would be blanced for both 15sec cooldown spells and for 30 sec cooldown spells.
This would also remove the 3 q compo which was op with bows multishot or dual daggers compo with slitthroat.I agree. If meditation is one reason to unbalanced builds it should be considered to remove or atleast change somehow it wont bring any new problems everytime other items are reworked. There is lots of artifact items still coming to the game and that way more possibilities to get unbalanced builds once again. Remove meditation and replace it with something more assassin like ability, it is assassin hood ya know.
I agree somewhat. It needs to be reworked at least. For a dps player meditate is almost a must have. Ice block and stone skin doesn’t reduce the cool downs on 3 damage dealing skills to find albion online gold shop, it’s obviously a lot more powerful.Meditate reduce the cool down of meditate, so the CD written in the skill description is wrong, it is much shorter.
Meditate is fine, well balanced because we have skills like Flee for people without 2+ sprints to offset mobility issues with it, Iceblock to counter the extra damage it may bring to the table, mostly its used by bow (that doesn’t do that much damage anymore) and melee users because they need that extra boost where magic users dont always need, they need more defensive skills being in light arma with no mobility or extra defence provided from the weapon.
Really it doesnt help as much as you think if we talking like a 1v1 its more of a noob friendly skill incase you stuff up, or Quality of life skill.
