    About dem new weapons

    The casti-whatever blades and the charge weapons. You think they'll be any good? I can see tons of people running blur+blade. Brace yourselves for another **** storm. I know nothing of the charge weapons and I'm not looking forward to running around in a sea of white.(casthian players)
    Also off topic: Are outfits any cheaper?

    There was a video showing gameplay with the new DLC. Blade didn't look very powerful. As a matter of fact it just looked like it was doing melee damage for the most part. It's not a Halo Energy Sword if that's what you're thinking. Looks like they'll need to hit you multiple times.

    Can't wait to make a complete melee build and start tearing up arena's with my charge blade. If I don't see people with a red blade running around yelling "Come to the dark side" or other Sith references I'm going to be upset.

    And no outfits arn't any cheaper even though they should be. If the prices weren't so damn high (like the rent) then more people would be inclined to buy them, me included. The cheapest outfit is £3.60 (EMC Scout head and body), that's alright, but the majority of them are £13.20. That's more than the cost of the game is!

    The charge blades aren't insta-kill weapons, they have a quick attack, a slower, strong attack and then a charge up AoE pushback. In the walk through from ComiCon they did say melee builds would be very powerful with the addition of charge blades. You still have to get close enough to use them in the first place though. I actually put together a theoretical melee build for fun to try out once the DLC hits.
    • Juggernaut: On a melee kill, you take 15% less damage for 5 seconds
    • Quickening: On a melee kill, recharge your EGO Power by 12%
    • Follow-Through: On a critical kill, +75% damage to your next melee attack (expires after 10 seconds)
    • Sonic Strike: While Blur is active, you deal +60% more melee damage
    • Second Wind: Reduce the recharge time of Blur -12s
    • Aggressive Defense: On a melee kill, recharge 15% of your shield
    • Nothing to Lose: You deal +20% more melee damage when your shields are down
    • Fortitude: Increase your health +225 HP
    • Cellular Armor: Take 6% less damage
    • Killing Spree: On a kill, extend the duration of the active EGO Power +6%
    All perks values at max

    As for the actual guns with the charge ability, they don't seem too crazy. Basically you hold down the trigger, the shot charges and then hits harder than normal. If you hold down the trigger for too long without releasing, the gun will overheat, you'll lose the shot and be unable to shoot for a few seconds so that balances out their potential advantages.

    Charge guns are meant for volge who will kill you ifya stay out of cover for too long. Just charge then shoot and hide again! ♥
