Aethertech Nerf - Not announced?

Recommended Posts

Vyana-DN   

Hi, 
I realized that my Aethertech has been greatly nerfed in PVE damage, but changes were not stated in the patch notes at all. Any reason for this? Also, why the huge nerfhammer?
 Here is the FULL comparison of the changes between 6.5 and 7.0 on AT skills:

This was completely not written in the patch notes as all, and as far as I am aware, only applicable to ATs. Wanted to just check if other classes received such changes without any announcements?

You can see skills such as "Ravager Canon" 's damage has been reduced by 35% (e.g. from lvl base of 3418 in 6.5 to 2222 now in 7.0),

The short answer to your question is "yes" other classes at least one other class had a nerf to PVE damage. However in the case of ATs it could be argued that it wasn't a surprise that it would be toned down.

AT got nerfed a lot and to say it's small is a understatement. AT was a little strong when maxed geared but to hammer it this hard and buff it later with a heal CD reduction is just to much. I wouldn't be surprised to see templars beating all AT now with these changes and they are the tanks.

hahaha noobs, play witch AT only 1 version and complains about nerf xD

 

AT is better than ever.

Same thing as what happened with people creating chanters in 6.2 then abandoning them in 6.7 after the nerf.

Wimps.

Noob? l've played AT since it came out and been back and fourth on this game. The buff is only seen if you have access to all your stigmas so any new player will not. The shield being on a less CD is a buff IF you have the space to socket it.  4.0 AT's were much stronger then what we have now.

Yep totally agree. I do agree a slight adjustment may have been in order, say maybe 10% -20% of adjustment on certain skills , but now with 35%reduction on virtually all the main damage skills is excessive!

Hmm, please do advise then on how it is better. I really would appreciate this as to be fair, I have started playing Aion after a break and only started AT recently. So how is the AT better now in 7.0 vs 6.5/6.8?


I have compiled below the list of the skills which have had a 35% damage reduction in base damage:

Skill………………………………..7.0………..6.5
Battery………………………….920…….. 1396
Beatdown………………….. 1337…….. 2027
Bludgeon………………………934……….1413
Chilling Wave……………….1172……....1784
Heat Burst………………….. 2476……...3732
Idium Explosion  lvl 1….. 1771……... 2725
Idium Explosion  lvl 2…… 2334…….. 3591
Idium Explosion  lvl 3…… 2898……. 4458
Meteor Strike……………… 2307…….. 3549
Rain of Knuckles…….……. 1069……..1645
Ravager Cannon lvl 1….… 2222….....3418
Ravager Cannon lvl 2…….3064…..... 4714
Ravager Cannon lvl 3……. 6287…….. 9672
Riplash…………………………..1470……. 2262
Rocket Punch…………………1874……..2825
Steam Rush……………………1439……..2183
Sundering Blade……………..698………1052

I may have missed out a few, but this is practically all AT's main spells. This translates into a 35% reduce in AT's dps.

AT was bottom dps class before 6.5, they buff it and now they nerfed it again, makes no sense.
