I've finally made the switch tons of other bounty hunters made when Delta came out. Well, I'm a Cyber Hunter now. Weird.
I really don't know what made me do the switch. Actually, let's go back a bit more. I had 4,000+ Artix Points sitting in my Master Account. I was going to save up for 10,000 Artix Points (aka 10000 Varium and 5 keys), but that went down the drain when I remembered how much I wanted the Wraith Weapons (a lot). So I thought about it. And then bought the varium.
Now, what did I do with the Varium? I realized that my love of Wraith Weapons had suddenly vanished. I still wanted a Varium weapon, though. So I went over to Rabblefroth.
Rabble did not disappoint. I went away with Macabre Harvest, which I bought for its suspiciously tankish stats (+15 dex, +8 tech).
Then I hit another wall. What the hell was I going to do in battle with an energy primary and sidearm as a Bounty Hunter? And no, I was not going to save up to get a physical gun. I go on EpicDuel about once a week now (suffering from 'I will play other games while Omega is still in development' syndrome), just to prove to my faction leader that I am still alive and on a computer. (I wonder what Faye Runaway is thinking of my disabled Tactical Mercenary- if she sees this, Merc1225 is disabled, and yes, it may take a while before I have him back, along with ReconnaisX).
Wow. That went off-topic really fast. But anyhow, I switched. There. Simple as that.
And then I hit yet another wall. What kind of build would I use? Strength was definitely out of the question; that is for people with all varium weapons enhanced to the max who will probably leave when Omega is released. I just wanted a simple basic build (and to balance my defense and resistance. That didn't work so well, try using Plasma Armor with Cardboard Crusader). I was familiar with only one in the CH category (don't worry, I know a crapton of builds for the other five classes, as I have played as one before). And that happened to be a Five Focus build. Ha.
|Note the obvious unbalancement of defense and resistance. Then add 10 to the resistance. Yeah, I know.|
But really, even as I write/type/push buttons at 70 wpm/demonstrate an input-output system, I am still thinking: Am I an idiot? I joined the already massive league of Cyber Hunters months after their great nerfs.
PS: Since I am a Cyber Hunter, I guess now I shall be arguing for them, which is ironic, because at one time in my ED life I hated them to no end.
