    Default VC and Crit

    VC is bugged atm and does not crit or so it is said it is a bug and is being looked into. Anyone else think VC not critting is the way to go?

    Personally, when one ability can literally do 1/2 or 1/3 of someone's dps that ability is by example OP. With VC no longer critting it is still a nice boost of dps but is not longer a ridiculous amount of dps. I think it should stay this way

    What do you think?

    No. The only time it spikes that high is with a miracle. It's fine the way it is.

    VC is overpowered imo. Right now, parse threads are pretty much defined by VC disparities. That said, it is a mechanic that allows seperation of decent bards from elite.

    You mean single fight short parses on mobs that don't do anything special and are on farm status are dominated by VC. The effect on zonewides and hard encounters is drastically less. The ability is fine. It not critting is a side effect of the code change to make 2 sets not crit, it just shows how bad their code is.

    Correct most of the high parses you see are 20-40% VC. I don't understand why anyone would think VC is not OP.

    And it still can be. It would just be a lower ratio. Also, casting incinerate is not elite.

    The only time you see VC dominating a parse is on fights that are 40 seconds or so. Look at fights that matter and its perfectly fine.

    I disagree. Sure VC's aren't 150k's but they are still 80k+ and about 10-20% of someone's parse which is still OP imo. Hell, they nerfed greater void bane back in TSO and it was doing about that.

    Ya let me see 20% of a 4RT or a Mossasus or a Saalax or Theerax parse being VC or for that matter show us some zonewides where VC is 20% of someone's dps.

    VC does nothing op on those fights so no its not OP by any means
