[quote=“Noetherian, post:20, topic:1958”]Trait Balancing:
“Fan of Knives” and both grant 20% Speed as bonus damage (they work in slightly different ways, but they are clearly similar traits).
Given this, it isn’t clear to me why “Bombardment” (Crypt Bat Trait) needs to be 10% of Attack added as bonus damage.
The 2-fold difference between Bombardment and Fan of Knives would makes no sense, especially given how generally useful Speed is. (Also, “Fan of Knives” does not appear to be over-powered given that it seems most people on the forums don’t use these kind of On-Hit builds … Though personally, I find these kind of builds fun to play.)
You should consider changing “Bombardment” to 15 or 20%.[/quote]
While i understand your point, the thing is that, while speed is awesome, it doesnt directly affect damage that much. So trolls own damage wont increase significantly if you just pump his speed (and he doesnt trigger on his own attacks). While on bat increasing attack increases both his own damage AND the trigger one. However i do agree the bat one seems subpar in most cases and could probably gain from a raise.
Now disregarding strength, it could be considered an alternative creature for those that want to buff attack team-wide, in which case the troll would not benefit. From that standpoint, its definitly weaker and your suggested 15 to 20% seems reasonable.
Troll Knife-Juggler btw is awesome.
