Where's that guy that made a poll on arrow blaster? Turret is safe again guys. Liking this patch, more motivation to play my bm haha.

While i do not know the exact numbers/calculations, i'm going to speculate that bowmasters got most of these buffs to make up for the cooldown on Armor piercing. Armor piercing is different per boss, but its quite some damage loss against some of the higher end bosses with a 1 second cooldown. If you just look at BMs damage range, then this seems like a buff.

I guess we'll have to wait for the calcs and whatnot to see how significant these changes actually are. At least they decided to remove the cooldown on turret (thank god).

That was me. I was so excited about the removal of the cd when I read about it earlier this week. Initially I predicted this would happen, but I lost faith when they still had it in the 3rd tweak update notes. I considered making a new post, but I figured most people saw it in the general posts. Now if they could just rush this update to GMS instead of making us wait half a year haha.

@AeroReborn Considering the activation problems with armor piercing it's probably better than it was before.

@AssMuppet what were the activation problems with it? I remember Armor Piercing proccing a couple of times within a second for me. Although, I havent played my bm much recently.

Well apparently it has a 2000 second cooldown between triggers, but it behaves oddly with hurricane and all it's supplementary skills. I speculate that the change to armor break is very significant. Besides all that they did buff bowmaster mobbing a fair bit, poison arrows deal 220% damage now, quiver has no delay and arrow stream now hits 5 times (6 with hyper). I think the greatest loss we have is the AFA from turret.

I accept these changes cause it lets me train the same way and gollux the same way.

Armor Breaks changes are most likely a buff or a "no change" whether its currently bugged or not.

An unbugged Armor Break activates at a 25-27% rate.
The new Armor Break is most likely a number around 24-50%, with the 50% being more probable.

Hard to say for sure because there are some questions about Armor Break that remain unanswered.

Range is not the best way to judge wheter a class got buffed or not...but yes BMs are for the most part Buffed.

this week is a wonderful week.

Bowmasters got pretty good buffs and skill fixes that they needed and my Lakers got D'Angelo Russell. now lets hope we make a big splash in free agency.

Armor break activates once a second so it activates 1/(total h/s) of the time which is around 3% of the time compared to the 27% rate that is expected with our current GMS skill description. Obviously, with the "glitch"/limitation in place, our current armor break activates far less than 27% of the time using hurricane.

It's probably worth noting that we might be "buffed" from the fixes to AFA (if there was any issue w/ our hurricane AFA at all)

It seems that kms bm's AFA is glitched (kms 1.2.238).

Judging from those 3 statistics, AFA proc rate is ~50% (instead of 70%).
I wonder if this is happening to gms as well right now. Hopefully gms would implement this battle statistics feature soon .
