Because the last one we got was a lie.
Every update since this post was made has seen momentum be a mandatory talent for the standard single target build. Our damage is going to be balanced around having momentum because otherwise, we would be op by taking it. Momentum is too easy to take for the fringe, unenjoyable playstyle it is.
I’m not interested in switching to some throw glaive build to avoid momentum(which momentum is still looking mandatory for that build too anyway). I want to continue playing the same playstyle I’ve been playing for the last 4 years, and right now, that is being infected by momentum. Even doing 1% less damage than I should be doing by choosing not to play momentum is unacceptable.
Momentum needs to be a choice node with a genuine choice, or be completely redesigned to not trigger off of fel rush so we only trigger it during our burst window.
Do something. Don’t ruin this class by forcing momentum as it’s currently designed.
