Molten shell- lightning trap. Fireball-spider nerf

Molten Shell

Now has a base duration of 3 seconds at all gem levels (from 10).
Now grants 50 additional armour at gem level 1 (from 17), up to 858 at gem level 20 (from 943)
Now creates a buff that can take damage equal to 20% of your armour.
Now causes 75% of damage from hits to be taken from the buff before your life or energy shield.
Now reflects 100% of damage taken from the buff as fire damage when the buff expires or is depleted at gem level 1, up to 1050% at gem level 20.
Now has a 4 second cooldown (from 1).
Shares its cooldown with other guard skills (Steelskin and Immortal Call).


Sound like you guys need to look at it asap or pvp melee will be dead again next league with this no?


lightning trap


Why no nerf? This dominate the meta last league and is way too strong coupled with sir of shard. Multiple projectile and traps what can go wrong? This need the fireball nerf (30% less damage)


Fireball-spider nerf

Molten shell could be a problem depending on skill-specific pvp penalty.
Casual 50K armour grants 10k additional hp pool, once it's depleted attacker will take 105000 flat fire damage back, vs 75% fire res at T=4 this is 5796 damage.

GMP Fireball still overlaps at maximum distance so the nerf will be barely noticeable.
The game had a tremendously fun and rewarding PvP experience.
it's not lightning trap, its ball lightning. its awesome now, with new immortal call and endurance charges! if you're looking for the best pvp build bl is the way to go.

Clearly we can see, how things are balanced. fireball hardly dominate anything in pvp running around with 1k hp. suck in 1v1 today, not to mention the new immortal call can possibly tank it.

I don't play ball lightning (Anymore), but i don't want to see it get nerfed.
its a fun build, clearing everyone, sometimes you don't even know how they died.. Leave bl as it is. Rather that than see a 80% damage nerf-because-i-don't-know-how-they-balance-pvp.(KB)

I just have an idea while talking about this, 1) Max your chaos res , 2) get huge armour, 3) Get molten shell, 4) get crap load of endurance charges 5) get 100% reduce crit ( corruption ) , 5) Put Ball-lightning into sire of shards 6) Press i-win button

Managed to get my hands on some legion jewels, doesn't change anything.

in short,

nerf to weak , buff the strong.

Im sorry fellow pvp-er's, Myself included.. Waiting 3months after 3 months to see the patch notes and realize nothing have changed or even correctly balanced, took like 4 years to nerf zerphis? It's kinda painful to have to suffer for 3 months because soul rend somehow by bypasses pvp values while attached to trap support. I believe bugs like this should be instantly hot-fixed. but i guess pvp was never a priority...

I know ball lightning is busted but it already got a 25% less damage coupled with the less damage from using supports. I don t know if they can do anything about it more than that.

they would need to change traps/mine formula or something.


Lightning trap is still very very strong.

+divine flesh.

get farrul's, use voll's ammy, you'll get decent immortal call duration with all those end. charges;
add divine flesh + 85% chaos resistance mitigation on top of that.

provbably unkillable.

Fortify with bunch of Increased effect + Divine Flesh + Molten Shell with 50k armour

bondisk, you were supposed to make that build to be immortal instead of being well balanced char.

or a tank build with indigon where the only dps source is indigon and the rest of the gear is totally for stacking defense.

i rememberr you've used this combo at your 5k life DPS char. I'm more interested applications of this defense setup on 4k mana + 7.5k life build. (probably with indigon)

i've watched lapiz beating BL very easily also. cheer up people.

If dps rely on indigon only, hard to kill tanky char.
7.5k and 5k life really no difference with molten shell mechanism.
Lapiz's build is good. But if you think he beating BL very easily watch more.
BL can use new defensive combination also.
Good luck to my friends.
