Further add-on changes for the Legion!
Legion, as you may know, got a huge add-on pass in this update, but some of the add-ons are trying too hard to be interesting, but fail at being good or useful at all, so I have a few ideas on how to change them!
Julie's Mix Tape + Frank's Mix Tape
These two add-ons basically do the same thing, they increase a specific action speed while in Feral Frenzy, it's an interesting idea, but falls right on it's face when you realize that you shouldn't be kicking Generators while in Frenzy or breaking Walls.
The effects are unique enough to be kept, so I suggest to combine these two add-on effects into one add-on (that being Julie's Mix Tape) and make it a common rarity, since these effect aren't impactful enough to be uncommon or even very rare.
Julie's Mix Tape (common)
While using Freal Frenzy:
- Damage Generators and Breakable Walls 25% faster.
- The power gauge pauses while doing these actions.
Also since we got rid of one uncommon add-on (I'm keeping Frank's Mix Tape very rare), it should get replaced by different common add-on. I think Mischief List is powerful enough to become an uncommon rarity add-on to take it's place.
Now to Frank's Mix Tape, since that add-on lost it's previous effect, it's time to give it something unique. Like Tatariu already suggessted several times, I think it would also be a great idea if it made Survivors drop their items. Maybe if that proved to be too powerful, it could have a small drawback like requiering chain hits or slightly decreasing the self mend time.
Frank's Mix Tape
- Feral Slash causes Survivors to drop their carried items.
This add-on is odd, it helps you, but also hinders your power in a big way by removing any information you can get on Survivors with Feral Frenzy for it's duration.
So what if this add-on increased Feral Frenzy pallet and window vault speeds? It isn't something very powerful, but I think it would be really nice to have something like that. It could also act as a mini Bamboozle, since that Perk is very valuable as Legion to prevent Survivors going through you and vaulting a window again.
- Increases Feral Frenzy windows and pallet vaulting speeds by 15%.
or it could do this:
- Vaulting a window in Feral Frenzy blocks it for 5 seconds.
Also a little nitpick, I personally always disliked reworked add-ons that previously were an "evolution" of another one and now they have both completely different effects, so I suggest to rework the add-on into something else (like you did with Cold Dirt into BFFS) that isn't a ruler, so it doesn't suggest to be a recovery add-on like Scratched Ruler is. Maybe you could actually return Cold Dirt, so you don't have to create another image for it.
Stolen Sketch Book
I think this add-on shouldn't exist, it's effect doesn't do basically anything useful. Having shorter cooldown after basic attack would be great base kit, but if that wouldn't happen there already is a better add-on that makes the power gauge recover so much faster and it's common rarity.
So what if it also increased your movement speed slightly like the Mural Sketch does? It could increase your movement speed, but with a duration drawback.
Stolen Sketch Book
- Increases speed bonus per hit during Feral Frenzy by 0.2 m/s.
- Reduces Feral Frenzy duration by 2 seconds.
Joey's Mix Tape
This add-on actually doesn't need any changes with it's effect, but I always liked the idea of every Mix Tape add-on having it's own rarity, so decreasing it to Uncommon would be alright I think, since it's on par with Mangled now.
And since it would be an uncommon add-on, bumping up Never-Sleep Pills to rare wouldn't really hurt, I think that add-on is really good, even tho it makes you a slug.
Stab Wounds Study
I'm not sure why this add-ons was kept, since it was only commonly used with old Frank's Mix Tape, which is now gone forever.
So what if it did something special, something that still has something to do with Deep Wounds.
Stab Wounds Study
- Deep Wounds timer goes 4x faster while working on different objectives (Totems, Generators, etc.).
This way it would still be pretty situational, but it could give a small surprise to Survivors that don't pay too much attention to their timer while working on Generators.
This add-on is such a good idea, but the effect is so laughable that it will never be used or useful. So I think it could do something more drastic.
Since reaching 30 stack isn't exactly easiest, what if it reduced the Feral Frenzy ability to down from 5 hits to 4 hits once the treshold is reached? Maybe that would be too powerful, but I let you decide.
- If 30 or more tokens have been collected, decreases the ability to down Survivors in Feral Frenzy from 5 hits to 4 hits.
So what do you think about this? Would you change anything aswell? Let me know!
