Is EK gonna get nerfed or not?

They can boost the damage to make up for hitting much less targets with each shot, but that doesn't address the fun factor that is also being nerfed, watching your shots propagate all over the screen in an epic chain reaction is something that is going to be lost to us.


A proper nerf for an overpowered mechanic. People are not playing this game to watch sparky/funny chain reactions...

I agree and this also brings down ranged characters life span to be on par with melee.

I have been trying for a 6 link since a week after release in order to get chain or fork on my EK. Guess I'll reroll as there is nothing else my character can gain in the game.

EK is far from op...

LA however, is op.

Everyone is rolling it because it looks awesome.

It sounds awesome too. A really cool shromp-shromp-shromp. Much better than the woosh-woosh-woosh of freezing pulse.
You don't really need Chain or Fork to optimize EK.



As long as you have some Faster Projectile mods, the raw damage is still very good with proficient distance to work with. The 10 projectiles is plenty enough AoE.

Afterall, EK is meant to be a mid-ranged skill. The mana cost multiplier from Fork/Chain verses the distance gained isn't worth it, imo. Biggest benefit from using those support gems is you're less likely to 1 shot yourself against Physical reflect.

If GGG end up buffing EK to compensate the Chain/Fork projectile timer, I'd be happy.
