Frost Gunner Renegade
That seems pretty amusing, actually. Necros definitely can’t abuse fast attack rates like that anymore.
I’m a Geeleiver
Didn’t frost gun get nerfed?
On a barely related note. I think a frost base rifle spec could be really fun in general for Revenant.
@BlazeQ as discussed in the post, the gun was indeed nerfed with reference to what a necromancer can do with it – but my argument is that despite these nerfs the frost gun is still an effective weapon in the hands of a Renegade.
@Fractured it would indeed, shame we got an fire-themed shortbow instead.
And on that topic, has anyone else noticed that the elementalist Frost Bow was buffed recently in a way that really benefits Revenants? The conjure has had extra hits added to Frost Fan and extra duration to Deep Freeze for more Abyssal Chill procs; as well as extra hits to Ice Storm and extra damage to Frost Volley; and the new duration rules favour having a Revenant pick up the second bundle. Skill-for-skill the Frost Bow may be better DPS than our class shortbow, and the longer cast times & cooldowns across its skills are offset by the lack of energy costs. I find this quite amusing ::)
Oh and as an added bonus for Ventari/Kalla builds using this weapon now gives an extra +20% to outgoing healing, on top of the extra healing power and condition duration the weapon already provided. Or to put it another way this weapon is now amazing for every Revenant build and (since I’m not hearing much love in the Weaver forum for the new stances) we should try to persuade any Elementalists we play with to run this skill and let us pick up the dropped weapon.

As a necromancer main, you’ll have to fight me for it.
