Could we not give aw a base damage/weapon with a cool down and allow casting the skill on weapons to bypass this cool down and animate the selected weapon?


That's amazing. Give it three uses with a very long cooldown that summon random melee weapons. Suddenly it's possible to play pure Animate Weapon builds without having to haul around weapons to animate. Portaling into and out of a map isn't so terrible that you just leave good stuff lying on the ground.

GGG, please make this happen. It would be such a huge QOL improvement. It doesn't add any crazy power or anything to the skill, but it removes a massively annoying inconvenience.


@GGG please do this lol
how do you get your wepon back?
why do people prefer anger and wrath to hatred for this skill?.

You can't, it is consumed when you cast the spell on it.

Damage. Most weapons do about 30 phys damage base, and the Animate Weapon skill adds another 45-ish (at level 20). So, weapons do about 75 physical damage at base. A level 20 Anger adds ~110 fire damage to every hit, more than doubling the base damage. A level 20 Hatred adds 35% of phys as cold, which in this case is 75*.35= 26 damage. So you can see, Anger adds about 4x as much damage as Hatred does. It's the same for Wrath.

This Skill should get boost ASAP, i forgot when ppl actually used it in the past year.
I think the time has come:

2.6.0 Patch Notes
  • Animate Weapon now limited to 20.
  • 50% less Animate Weapon movement speed.
  • Animate Weapon now can't be affected by auras. (This is a nerf)
  • 20% more Animate Weapon damage at all levels.


Spoiler
I hope such cruel nerf could quench balance team blood thirst for some time and Blade flurry will stay untouched at least one league more

because it practically doesn't work for any build except necro, and is clunky and mana-hungry AF if you don't use it with spell totem?
And worst change is putting almost all bosses in new version of maps into fucking small areas, where you can't kite well or dodge stuff. What a terrible idiot invented that I want say to him : dude fuck you, seriously fuck you very much ~Elua

Another option - make it automatically pick first nearest identified weapon which is near your cursor, and auto-summon it. Same as summon zombies mechanic.
