Making 2h ranged viable
There are several issues adverse 2h ranged.
1. Too agnate to magic, so abridgement of action triangle diversity.
2. Bifold apply ranged is bigger due to aggravate bang and bakriminel bolts.
3. Salt the Wound and Mutated Dazing Attempt (the abilities that were declared to accomplish 2h ranged viable) are not acceptable to use due to the adversity of architecture and advancement stacks.
So the afterward is my proposed solution. Makes ranged a little altered from magic, gives 2h ranged a slight addict to accompany it afterpiece to on par with bifold wield, and makes Puncture assemblage artisan applicable and anniversary using.
Double Puncture Basal adeptness for 2h ranged weapons 12 additional cooldown (20 ticks).
Does 36%-180% adeptness accident in two abstracted hits that do according damage.
Applies a Puncture assemblage for anniversary hit that acreage and refreshes continuance on absolute Puncture stacks. Your next hit has 1% analytical adventitious admission per Puncture assemblage on the target.
This is hardly weaker than dragonbreath and snipe. About the added analytical helps accomplish up for it. At max Puncture stacks, it gives 10% analytical to the next hit, which is what concentrated bang does if canceled afterwards the all-around cooldown.
Also, in accumulation bang-up encounters, it would be added applicable to accept a few rMaddens on the aggregation all appliance the Puncture artisan rather than just stacking the DPS accumulation with abracadabra users.
This would aswell hardly abate the alterity amid ranged and 4taa magic.
Why accord ranged accession able basic?
Melee already has two 188% abilities. This would accord 2h ranged a 180% adeptness and aswell still accept abstract which is 219%.
Why abandoned 2h ranged?
Because bifold apply has aggravate bang (7% accident accession to next hit) and bakriminel bolts with a advanced array of acceptable effects.
