I'm mainly interested in how the unisex crotch protector comes into play.
Devil's Advocate: I can see a 'mech-suit brawler' class being several shades of awesome, link mechmonks or cyberninja whatever. I'd quite possibly invest in such a class, but yeah, that isn't what I expected from B.E.A.S.T. Looking forward to the changes.
So all I'm going to say is this -- I stopped playing around January 1st and came back just a couple days ago after the BEAST tuning to find that I am now dying a lot more than before. I take more damage than I did. My damage seems fine. I'm using rail guns and it takes 4 shots to take down a creature in the Fields of Oranc. About 9 or so with Tear (rough estimate). I wasn't aware we were god status back then and I understand if we needed to be toned down a bit, but it feels like you over corrected by just a tad.
Yes, its boring as hell. That's the point of this entire thread. The current state of BEAST hunting is boring as hell. I can't think of a more watered down, boring way for the class to hunt. Event shield bashing something to death sounds more unique and entertaining. I hate that we have a shortsword. Why aren't we using power hammers? Or energy blades? Even rocket punching is more entertaining. There already is a sword class. We need to move away from being one.
Yeah that's every class now. Except for perhaps privileged Scoundrels?
