View Full Version : Laser Sword and the recent nerf

The recent nerf is worded that laser sword took advantage of "Super Stats". With this in mind it would really only effect its damage if you super stat'd for strength which has been proven to be a bad idea.
So does this effect laser sword at all if you super stat'd for something else like int/end?

I'd love to see this answered as well. Laser sword is fantastic right now for me, hoping it doesn't lose its purpose.

the stat damage cap still allows for 32% damage bonus on laser sword. I think you would already need a ton of str to have been seeing that bonus. Another thing about laser sword is that it is listed as particle/melee damage so it may be that str only affects one variable that contributes to the overall damage that laser sword does.
The damage of laser sword mostly comes from it damage value which you can view in the advanced tab of laser sword at the trainer. It is an ability that trades a really high energy cost for a good damage output and this is with or without any str bonus.
Lets stop talking about laser sword now and never bring it up again.

the patch notes also referred to powers that were "double dipping" and receiving extra damage strength enhancement from stats.
I'm hoping that they got all of them and don't need to fix/nerf any more.
