With the recent announcement of the coming buffs and nerfs to various abilities, I was disappointed with the changes to Burning Maul and the nonexistent ones to the subclass tree as a whole. Hopefully, these changes are noticed and put into the game with the coming patch. Please Bungie, this subclass tree needs some love. Currently, it's probably the worst subclass tree in D2 (and maybe D1). [b]Roaring Flames[/b] - Increase damage buff, with 1x = +10%, 2x = +25%, and 3x = +50% - [b](Optional)[/b] Increase duration to 18-20 seconds [b]Throwing Hammer[/b] - Allow user to recall their hammer from wherever, still proccing health regen after getting a kill with it, having a lengthy animation similar to voidwalker's abilites [u]Edit[/u]: Recall will only work if the hammer is still in the game world, not when it already expired/exploded, and ([b]Optional[/b], but important) instant recall if you get a kill with it, with it damaging enemies in its path, if no, exotic idea? - Increase the animation speed of throwing the hammer - Let perks like fastball affect it - Add a HUD indicator that points to your hammer - Don't allow other users of Code of the Devastator to pick up your hammer, it's annoying - Increase the time it takes to explode/expire to 10 seconds [u]Edit[/u]: In retrospect, it'd probably be best to keep the time until detonation the way it is if hammer summoning is a thing... [b]Super[/b] - Get rid of the fire tornado's ability to launch enemies up, it's annoying - Following up the previous change, allow the fire tornado to pull in enemies - Replace the spin move with D1's Suncharge or a variation of it, giving this slow super a mobility option at the cost of super energy (it'll cost at least as much as the spin does now), which would be able to OHK only neutral guardians within its path (and probably supers at 3x Roaring Flames only) - Following up the previous change, get rid of the ability to rapidly chain it, having an animation at the end of each use, similar to Suncharge If there are any questions about my suggestions, please ask.
I actually really like this tree in pve, it is super fun to play with and I feel like I do a lot of damage with it. The only thing I wish was that it lasted slightly longer. I honestly wished I had unlocked this subclass first, and then missile.
