Eight New Quivers in Challenge Leagues

Well, now I'm making a bow user for sure.

And to the people who day you can't stun with bows, you absolutely can. There's generic stun threshold and duration nodes that you can use with any weapon, you can use a quality stun gem for both threshold and duration, and there's the bow node in the bottom right that adds stun duration. You can also get stun stats on belts and some uniques, and now we also have a stun quiver. I'm regularly stunning enemies as I level a bow user. You just have to do enough physical damage to have a chance to stun. I just need to invest a little more in stun duration, and I think I could stun-lock.

Ok, a bow max is maybe pushing 600 dmg and a 2 hand is close to 900... there are other factors:

The bow is ranged, giving the character a degree of safety that the melee user does not have.

The quiver changes the bow damage output dramatically while the user is still firing away at stuff off screen.

Meanwhile, the 2h melee is up close and personal, taking hits, getting shocked, frozen, etc while having no enhanced benefits of a (quiver/shield/offhand).

Just trying to keep the characters balanced, it seems reasonable that the 2h melee would have an "optional" piece that fits into the shield slot. (quivers are optional too)

That option could be something simple like x-type armour bonus: character gains xx armor.

Or it could be funky like:

"stomp boot spurs": 2H only: On critial hit, character Stomps target foe for x seconds stun and knock back. (20% chance)

"elbow smash arm guards": 2H only: On Stun, character elbows target foe for xx% of physical damage (20% chance)

"face kick boot clamps": 2h only: When on low life, character face kicks target foe, leeching 10% life (30% chance)

Please tell me that fired arrows in the game will now look different based on the type of quiver. Because that would be amazing. <3


I can absolutely guarantee you that definitely will not happen.

Yeah it's just that i'd like to be able to stunlock with bow for a build, that'd be nice with the new quivers but oh well we'll see. :)


This might only work if you can corrupted quality a decent stun duration on a bow. Since there is no skill like heavy blow or ground/leap slam for bows that gets extra stun you won't be able to stunlock most enemies.


Giving Point Blank a reduced stun threshold would work pretty well, it's a very underused skill and if a reduced stun threshold scaled with the damage based on distance (in effect creating two sources for increased stun chance) then I think Point Blank could actually be pretty useful for once - As enemies approach your chance to stun them would increase rapidly till you have (with supplementary items and passives) a very high chance to stun an enemy with each hit.

I'm really glad you aren't on the game design team :)

All this dex crying is being blown out of proportion imo. Duelist casters dont get an implicit INT offhand, Shadow melees dont get an STR
Shadow Melees can use Heavy Belts though. Should we dump those while we're at it?

There isn't an Int equivalent though, short of maybe Atziri's Foible. Probably why there are no Duelist casters.

Face kick boot clamps.....well played future Borderlands 3 dev.

But you are right 2h melee weapons need a scabbard for that slot, but that's been cried for many times.
