Michonne's Piercing Katana 2.6 unreleased update notes

KaLiKaLi Member Posts: 426
NG did one thing right by fixing the Piercing on Michonne's Katana. It was not mentioned in the update notes so Check the video out below for some high level piercing!

While I got you here please also observe the last 15 seconds of the clip of when Michonne's hero trait swift strike activates while she has her charge.

After it activates, and you use her charge ability then it doesn't give you a bonus attack like it should when you use warrior's charge.

Therefore leaving you with 2 attacks rather than 3. (It should be Michonne attacks and her swift strike activates, then uses charge to attack and gain another 3rd attack)

Maybe it's working as intended so it won't be too overpowered and at least the charge attack bypasses Bodyshots!

You can test her out in one of the seasons missions.
Would appreciate your feedback on that.

Thank you for your time and hope to see more piercing equipment for melee on the future! (2.7!)

    @KaLi There was some discussion and the missing 3rd attack is a bug. I was hoping that it got fixed with this update but we need to wait for another 3-4 month.
    Remember to use your charge abilities

    @KaLi -- it does look nice, but, with such a high-profile situation and ZERO mention from NG on any adjustments, I would still be leery on accepting that "piercing was fixed" as opposed to seeing a performance increase due to some other game mechanics being adjusted instead.

    It seems very suspicious to me that something NG openly offered refund help for and pulled from the store would get no fanfare upon being available to use properly again (unless staff also provides confirmation).

    @Teeceezy / @Fearofabotplanet / @Shteevie -- can you advise to "Melee Piercing" being fixed in 2.6?

    Have you ever seen a non charged warrior not bodyshot lvl 30++? It's almost impossible unless piercing played a role :D

    Probably fixed it by accident a positive bug if your were.

    @KaLi -- the numbers are awesome in your video, more than impressive I must say.

    I just see this as one of three situations since NG has been mum on such a big "fix":
    1) Nothing was intentionally changed on the Melee Piercing trait and this is information to them, too.

    2) It was overlooked and missed being included in the update notes.

    3) It was fixed and *intentionally* left out of the release notes so NG can monitor, analyze, and "balance" its performance (unfortunately affecting awesome forum contributors such as yourself) so they can upset the fewest players (beta-testers) prior to announcing to the masses of it's "fix".

    How long does it take for you to do a mission @KaLi ? Cuz you obviously take it really slow and think through steps and then fast forward in the videos. I noticed you even didn't have the fast forward on within the game itself!

    And: if possible, could you slow down your videos a bit? I had no idea wth was going on in your vid of testing the revenge trait in the other thread
