Huntress can move and shoot, very babby friendly. Drone spam is such a crutch that you'll probably stop buying more than a couple when you git gud to preserve the challenge. Engi is another noob-friendly pick.

Once you've gotten late game with them a couple of times you should do fine with harder characters. HAN-D, sniper and merc are quite fun.

It's hard to use effectively since it also affects you, making it worthless on merc since I think it also lowers damage done


1d7534  No.16527862

it's june

when's patch

>>16527334

Effigy of Grief reduces armor by 20, giving roughly 16% damage amp. If there's a shortage of equipment in your run (very common when playing with 4 players) then it's worth picking up and tossing at a boss at the very least.

The only unfortunate thing is that the majority of the bosses don't sit still close to the ground, so it wont have any effect.

You also don't want to throw it at the Clay Dunestrider either, because the -50% speed it applies also applies to attack speed. And you wouldn't want his succ that gives him 200 armor to last twice as long, do you?

I haven't run into a scenario where I've used it yet, as I mostly play Mercenary. I don't want to toss it at a boss I want to kill, and by the time multiple bosses spawn, I usually have a better equipment to replace it.

That said, I wouldn't deem it the worst equipment. Crowdfunder firmly holds that title. Effigy of Grief falls into the "situationally useful" category together with some other equipment like Milky Chrysalis.

Don't forget that you can also grief your fellow teammates with it, which is one of the most valuable traits Lunar items have. The more teammates you kill, the more loot you can claim. I am honestly convinced that Glowing Meteorite exists solely for that purpose, since it does worthless damage to enemies.


a88f30  No.16527995

>>16527862

>crowfunder is the worst

Surely you jest.

Crowfunder can proc items and for someone like Mercenary it can be incredibly useful, especially if you have something like the Ukulele or the Meat Hook and after the 4th stage money isn't even an issue anyway, meaning you basically have free attacks that proc all your items.

Crowfunder is basically an Engineer's turret you rent.

Stupid question; how do you reliably combat the Wandering Vagrant's AoE? I'm guessing you're supposed to flee as it charges up, but the range of it seems to be pretty huge and I've never been fast enough to not just get killed by it. I've been wondering if it's supposed to be a DPS check, but I haven't had much luck with that, either.

>>16619548

most of the characters, Im fairly sure, have an invincibility frame from one of their abilities. Im more familiar with mercenary since he has one and Im able to survive most times if I time the attack right.

Which character are you using?


e5aa83  No.16619576

>>16619548

Counter-intuitively, you just have to break line of sight. If you're behind cover, the vagrant's AoE won't hit you. It doesn't make sense visually, but it's how it works.


1a2052  No.16619589

>>16619561

I've been playing around with several characters to try and see which one I like best, but I never thought to try any of their dodges since I've been unsure whether the AoE is like a big wave you can dodge through or a big 'if you're in this area at all, you're fucked' attack (like the Imp Overlord seems to do, unless I need glasses). I should try it, though.

>>16619576

I mean it makes sense to hide behind cover, but I'll admit I never thought to hide behind anything because the attack just makes me think you need to get out of the big circle, not behind something.

You get the new character by going to the back of your drop pod and interacting with it. It gives you an item in your equipment slot that does nothing on its own (except explode and insta-kill you when you take a lot of damage). You need to take this item to stage 4, the abyss or whatever it's called. There, you need to interact with the robot that spawns on the platform just below and to the side of the highest platform.

Kinda weird, the spread is odd but otherwise lifesteal and slow make it real neat. Also works well with procs.

Good damage, really bad response and feel. It works, I guess.

It makes it easy to launch shit off of a cliff and applies slowdown, but that's roughly all it does. Fills a slot, that's it.

Really, really fucking good. It's a crowd control plus heal plus damage that has fuckall cooldown and pays back the 25% HP cost instantly. Synergizes well with RMB.

Garbage. But the sprint animation is neat, landshark mode plant robot, I like it.

tl;dr very slow, very survivable, needs crowds to accumulate before damage can be dished out effectively, works well with procs

A few quick notes from my runs.

Rex can cancel his basic attack with his mortar giving him huge attack speed without items.

Back-up magazine might seem like a waste on him but due to the attack cancel, it actually becomes a great option.

You can root everything in the game with your fourth ability except worms. They can still move around like nothing happened. Imps can also still teleport but they don't move around much when they do so it functions more like a spot-dodge.

Some choice items for Rex are healing items particularly Rejuvenation Rack and Corpsebloom. N'Kuhana's Opinion+Forest Spirit,etc. are also good of course. Primordial Cube is, in my opinion, his best active choice.

Equipment drones require your active item to activate and they seem to change their appearance and function based on what item you feed it. Pic related is a lightning bolt drone.

REX needs items to complement his M2. When he does, he's very strong. When he doesn't, he's pretty shit.

I just had a run where I had 3 backup magazines and a ton of medkits / brooches. I could substitute my main attack with M2, as well as burst M2 on tankier targets.

Then I got to the new zone (stage 7), spammed M2 on a clay dunestrider, and got taken down by a chaingun nigga that spawned behind me.

After playing around with him for a while, the final verdict on REX:

TRASH

>Natural Toxins is supposed to reduce speed, armor, and damage but the effect is so marginal that at later levels it may as well not exist.

>DIRECTIVE: Inject does unremarkable damage slowly and 1/3rd healing based 1/3rd of your damage is pitiful healing. Even stacking syringes doesn't help when you're getting peanuts per attack. You'd almost be better off starting with a medkit instead.

>Seed Barrage is good. Decent damage on a near instant cooldown, the problem is you will kill yourself with the self inflicted damage if you spam the shit which it seems to be designed for. It animation cancels your primary attack so you you can skip the delay between salvos and keep up your damage. The trickle of health you get from alternating your primary eventually levels out the cost to around 20-50% max health depending on your items which puts you in a very vulnerable position for someone with such a shitty escape.

>DIRECTIVE: Disperse is now the worst utility/mobility/shift skill in the game beating out Snapfreeze and Tactical dive. The range is poor, the knockback is mediocre, and using it as an extra jump is awkward and obnoxious when forward momentum is so heavily reliant on directional facing while you sprint in the air. It does no damage and applies the same largely useless debuff as your primary. You can use it to damage flying enemies by knocking them into walls but that only works on flying enemies so what's the point.

>Tangling Growth is amazing. Huge AoE CC minor vacuum lasting a surprisingly long time and fantastic healing on top of it. It costs a good chunk of health but you'll likely make it up within a second. The damage isn't great but who cares when you've just tied up an orgy's worth of monsters and brought them into one giant fuckpile ready for mortaring.

<The other stuff not related to his functionality:

>Uglier than sin.

>Very noisy design compared to the others and makes it difficult to see items on yourself.

>Sprinting animation is eye cancer and has the same issue of MUL-T looking very slow because of how fuckhuge he is.

Overall: He's decent damage in small AoEs at a great distance but other characters tend to do it better without being so extremely item dependent just to survive and function. The amount of healing items this guy needs just to stay relevant in the later loops is just unreasonable. Having good range is nice, in the early game especially, but on later loops when shits all over you like a rash that extra long range isn't really helping out too much. He's alright in concept but fuck he needs some tweaking. I'd suggest trimming the health cost of his seed barrage to 5 or 10% and making disperse much longer range as well as stun. I haven't the slightest idea how to fix it's momentum problem though.

I especially like that missing with Blinding Assault doesn't automatically use up the skill, it just lowers the number of uses by one. It's a welcome change considering how reliant the Merc is with that skill to deal with airborne enemies.

The biggest issue if you ask me is that the syringe burst has an absolutely godawful downtime, even worse than artificer's fireballs, except without the gratuitous damage numbers to justify it.

>>16638821

Artificer needs some mobility items and some form of healing and they're set. The lack of a reliable escape is obnoxious but you have more than enough damage to make up for it.

REX still needs some mobility items since his escape is shit, but also needs some damage assistance, and still has to gobble healing items just to keep his head above water. He easily needs more items than artificer and doesn't even do as well.

>>16638834

I especially like that he now has actual i-frames instead of pretend i-frames.

>>16639015

If you animation cancel it with your mortar the attackspeed is actually quite fast. Of course the issue with that is that you're biting your own dick off just to use it at that speed so you have to be careful with it. Even at the faster speed though you're probably pulling off slightly better numbers than most characters just standing still and holding M1 not including your mortar damage.

The healing on it is a joke though. You're only getting about 10% of your attack damage as healing which translates to single digit low numbers initially and low teens in late loops per attack. When you have several hundred into a thousand+ of health you're barely getting 1% of your bar back with every attack you land. That's pitiful when you have to rip out a fat 15% off the end every time you want to spam your only decent source of damage.

So we're finally getting some universe lore. Check out the equipment log for the Brittle Crown. Providence had a brother who was not happy with the fact that he was selected for the favor of some higher entity that died on his behalf (possibly N'kuhana?), and what he subsequently did with the planet. He's specific about the fact that once Providence dies, he'll make his move on the planet. Which we now also have a name for: Aphelia. He claims to have watched "for centuries, from my dead rock", and I can't help but notice the logo for RoR2 prominently features a moon in orbit where previously there had been none and the new classification of items are Lunar.

Also worth noting that the new Malachite enemies (which seal off healing) have the same color scheme as N'kuhana's Opinion (the log of which discusses the necessity of the balance of life and death) and their super-rare Elite type drop is called N'kuhana's Retort. The Ceremonial Dagger refers to a boy and girl fleeing something, and she pleads with the boy to kill her with the dagger so they'll be saved by "Her". In RoR1, the dagger's log was about a cult reclaiming the dagger, that the boy was foolish to think he could save his sister, and that the events should please "Her". It was being shipped to a burial site on Venus.

>>16643465

Seems like. Shaped Glass is also implicitly about the crafting of a weapon for the final boss, who "has plenty of time" and has "many great hands". Helfire Tincture also makes reference to a <He> involved in the creation of the item. Seems like the final boss is Providence's brother and the Lunar items are his personal arsenal. No idea what the log of Transcendence implies.

I don't understand why people bore themselves with REX.

Whenever I'm playing REX, I play like a suicidal maniac and spam that M2 nuke as hard as I can. I pick up backup magazines and my last run I picked up some glass too, which synergizes very well with my play-style.

Theoretically this would make you squishy, but if you get enough topaz brooches you can substitute your non-existent health pool with barriers. Medkits are actually a meme for REX, as they wont trigger if you spam M2 too hard.

REX does scale a lot worse due to attack speed being worthless on him. All his abilities are instant cast, and his M1 just isn't worth using. Backup magazines only alleviate the issue, for a DPS increase you require Alien Heads.

Her right click has to charge, your main damage once you get some items is either going to be on your flamethrower, or once you get shaped glass because why not, back on your right click. Backup mags are meh on her, because you're not really going to have an issue killing most shit that isn't a boss.

>>16644810

No, you don't need to charge the M2. At all. Click damage is more than enough plus charging delays the recharge start. Hell, you can spam it with enough backup mags.

Flamethrower on its own doesn't realistically need anything to be viable outside of crit glasses or a tri-tip dagger. Or really anything else that can stack on itself, both bands work really well and if you're lucky and got a behemoth or somehow get your hands on the overloading aspect you'll basically nuke everything.

You deal more ticks of damage than it is listed and there's carryover fire DoT, if you have anything stackable and/or anything with an on-hit proc you're going to absolutely obliterate near any regular target that isn't a big mob elite.

I'm severely doubting that as a possiblity since both tri-tip and crit glasses are white rarity items. And tri-tip is exceedingly, annoyingly common.

Whether I want it or not I end up with at least one by 3rd.

Though if you're somehow picking levels clean and by 4th stage all you have still is utility and health you probably shouldn't have issues surviving anything or dealing damage anyway. Not with artificer.

All I'm saying is that anyone is good with items, the issue is that she needs certain items to even be good in her niche. Like huntress even if you don't get back up mags, she can at least still kite fairly well and her glaive still does alright damage. Engineer is in a far worse spot than he was though because of that turret nerf, but at least he can make do. Artificer is the only one who just feels shitty to play without items, her damage is alright, she doesn't have an escape, the wall does basically nothing against bosses which are where most of your difficulty even comes from especially in later loops once you get overloading worms and shit. Hovering helps a lot but it doesn't really address her core reliance on items, which is fine, it just means I will never say she's good, even if she is fun if you can actually get items

Artificer's only true downside is a lack of a damage diminishing ability which is, well, not a problem once you figure out that keeping everything dead is a much better damage diminisher.

And if you can't realize that damage then that's entirely your issue and yours only, not the character's.

The problem with Artificer is the scaling of the enemies, what you just did is rush the game and not let them scale. That is not proving your point.

I do believe that Artificer is right now in a much better state as before, the hover is doing wonders for her survival which she lacked. She's no longer trash but she's not top tier either.

ROR calculates difficulty based on time in a run, and stages completed. If you're not outscaling the enemies you're losing. Balancing rushing stages with looting and killing is the very gameloop that it's constructed around. It absolutely proves his point.

I was trying to scale it as quickly as I could with near minimum items to show that you can progress even without them because your raw damage is high enough it doesn't matter. And it doesn't matter because your raw damage is still high enough that you can drop bosses faster than it takes the portal to charge even without support.

Artificer doesn't even need any specific items except some movement speed and whatever generic damage items you find. Her damage output is more than high enough to kill most enemies before they have a chance to attack, so long as you're not a retard that just stands there and facetanks the few hits that do get through or against bosses.

Damage falloff (and dodging attacks obviously) is all Commando should have to worry about imo. Adding spread into the equation makes him borderline useless past 50 feet, which is a death sentence past the second loop. At least give him a guaranteed damage at long range if you put the crosshair on target. Even 1 damage is better than 0 from an almost guaranteed miss on a normal-sized enemy, especially at mid-late game where proc on hit damage is the difference between being almost unkillable and dying less than a minute into the stage.

It is one of the best damage items though. Not only does it effectively increase your damage by 30% (10% chance to deal 300% damage, averaging to 30%), far more than most damage increasing items, but the missile itself also the only on-hit damaging effect other than the Ukulele that has a chance to proc even more on-hits, and in fact has a coefficient of 1, compared to the uke's 0.2. The Uke is generally a better item for on-hits because it hits multiple times, stacks better, and has a higher chance to go off, but you can't ignore that AtGs are still really, really good, especially in the early game.

BTW the reason Artificer is trash is not because she's item dependent (even though, to be frank, she is), it's because her M1 is on a fucking cooldown, and in a game where, with every other character, you'll be holding M1 for long periods of time to pump out lots of damage, her DPS is awful. She would be good in a different type of game where health bars are smaller or enemies are more defensive, but in the game we have now she's clearly the worst possible choice, especially considering that other than the hover, she has no mobility or utility to make up for this.

In a word, not only is she item dependent, but her skills make less use of the items she has than other characters can, with the obvious exception of the Crowbar. And even the Crowbar doesn't work properly for her because her M2's little zap ruins the crowbar damage for the explosion part.

Except the AtG Missile has to contend with the Ukulele, Will-o'-the-Wisp, Berzerker's Pauldron, and Kjaro's Band all on the same green tier. Attackspeed doesn't do as much for artificer as for other characters, but I'd still rate the uke, wisp, and kjaro's higher since they're all AoE, more consistent, or just straight better damage. And that leaves Runald's Band, Predatory Instincts, and the War Horn as the only other largely offensive oriented greens, some of which, circumstances depending, are about on par with the AtG so it's at best middle of the road for its tier.

So I don't mean to be a buzz kill, but why are they waiting so long to add an end boss? Atleast ROR1 had the option to go to the final stage or keep looping, why couldn't they have added that in with Scorched Acres, that way people who want to actually complete a run have that option other than OBLITERATE SELF and it shouldn't cause any trouble for adding things beyond that.

Also I hope they add more tracks because fuck if this current roster pales in comparison to the last one.

Because the devs are lazy fucking faggots. Risk of Rain 2 is making them who knows how much more than they ever grossed with Risk of Rain 1 and they've practically got money flowing through their ears as well as praise from even the most cynical and contrarian places on the internet, and yet they can't be bothered to fucking up the pace of a game that should have been released finished.

Yes indeed. It starts at 10% per second and reduces by 50% per stack. Or to put it bluntly it starts out shit and becomes so much worse that it kills you. The only way out is to switch to Transcendence, which is bad on Rex but you might not have another choice

Hellfire Tincture, Frost Relic, and a couple of Fuel Cells and Bandoliers on Merc was pretty fun. Activate the Tincture and spam Eviscerate while an ever-growing circle of death kills everything around you during your invincibility frames, causing more ammo pickups to drop so you can keep spamming invincibility.

Hellfire Tincture is one of the strongest use items early game (first loop). It has a 0 proc coefficient so once you have a decent selection of item procs it becomes useless, but by itself if you have a high base HP like Merc or MUL-T it can do a LOT of damage quickly. The big problem however is that it doesn't work with the two best Lunar items, Transcendence and GOTD.

By the time you can reliably kill multiple enemies at once, you don't need any more speed and probably aren't using attack speed based attacks at all. Also permanent bonuses are better anyway

>Cube

I guess you are trying to combo with Berserker's? You'd be better off with something that does actual damage anyway.

>Glass

Helps a bit very early, but then GREATLY increases your chances of dying suddenly later in the game. If you want a run to go long you should avoid glass at all costs.

>leeching seed in the same tier as war horn and catalyst

Leeching Seed is mostly shit, but Rex specifically needs all the healing he can get. Could put it in D tier instead.

>AP rounds rated higher than headstompers or sticky bombs

Sticky bombs got nerfed so hard they are absolutely worthless. The damage no longer goes up with stacks, only the activation chance. AP rounds are a little under 3x as powerful as sticky bombs now (at 15+15%), and sticky bombs are unlikely to explode before non-boss enemies are dead, so you can't even say they work on more targets.

>>16662580

2x Soldier's Syringe, a white item, is strictly better than Predatory Instincts (a green) even if you were able to keep the proc up 100% of the time. The fact that you need multiple other items (crit) in order to do that and even then you have to build up your proc stacks means that Predatory Instincts is pretty much trash. It's also worthless later in the game when you no longer rely on direct attacks anyway, so that creates a very narrow window between having enough crit to use it and no longer needing it where it does anything useful, and it's still not very much.

Also the graphic is extremely annoying late game, but I didn't factor that in.

I can accept sticky bomb going up to C. Warbanner is still something to avoid or feed to printers.

But it's NEVER something you want to choose out of a multishop unless all the other choices are rusty keys and medkits.

Assuming you can find the box, and it's definitely not worth the time to search for it specifically. You know the adage "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush"? A useful item right now is always worth more than the possibility of getting one later, especially when you are neither guaranteed to get a useful item, nor even find it at all.

Also, you really only have a few stages before the usefulness drops off significantly. I don't really care about getting an extra white on stage 5+, if the key hasn't payed off within the first 4 stages it's not going to.

lrn2 sprint n00b

no really sometimes you need to know when to backup and when to get in close for the kill. sprint is great for dodging, breaking line of sight, circle strafing, getting close to burn many targets with aoes. I would suggest rebinding sprint since I did a lot better since I did so

also leaving a chest for after the teleporter is okay just to get it started faster

>>16661682

doesn't it only trigger when you are already at half health anyways? you must be having a hell of a run to be able to heal 50% of your health in the short span that it takes for it to explode, and chances are you arnt going to be getting the slug or the shrooms to trigger if its that dangerous to take you down so low

It's different with MUL-T. He's so god damned slow that sprinting often isn't enough to dodge even stone golem lasers.


7b6d93  No.16665059

>>16663394

How the fuck do I deal with golems as MUL-T, or REX for that matter, just got two golem hordes as a first boss in REX runs and they ended exactly the same way: not near cover because I just hit the teleporter, they all laser first and I'm too slow to dodge lasers from five different directions even while sprinting, get one-shot.

You gotta jump just before they shoot, they don't track fast enough to account for that.

Did all of you seriously pay for a early access game published by gearbox that's only sold on steam? Please upload the latest patch for God's sake!

So the laser flashes right before they fire, it's somewhat subtle, so try looking out for that and hitting your utility ability to dodge the laser, or break line of sight.

Also Mul-T's right click can stun and so can his utility, so use those to stunlock the golems & stop them from firing

Cry "gearbox" all you want, nobody still has any idea just how much or how little they touched the game, but apparently it was just PR and paperwork so far. The game and it's IP as well as all development still belongs to Hoppoo fortunately.

Now, maybe if enough people buy this shit, maybe he'll go back and actually do that necromancer game he had a few gifs about.

I assumed some fag would continue uploading the substantial patches without the crack.

>it was just PR and paperwork

<Implying that's not bad enough on it's own.

Obviously I like Hoppoo and the the original but I'll maybe buy it once it's finished and DRM free.

>maybe if enough people buy this shit, maybe he'll go back and actually do that necromancer game

I'm pretty sure I remember there being some difficulties with that so I doubt it unless you know something new, fag.

>>16668931

I mean it's been rumored by several streamers who are pretty close to hoppo that the update was originally set for the 7/8th but then gearbox said "we can get you an exclusive with IGN that'll massively boost visibility the week after E3" so the update got "pushed back" because marketing thought it'd be a better deal
