Warlock super charge needs nerf

I love the Crucible in Destiny and how the use of Heavy weapons and vehicles can be game changers. The biggest game changers for me in this PvP mode, however, are the Guardian super charge abilities.The Hunter's in my opinion is the best since it requires some skill. The fact that you have to aim. Next is the Titan. His super charge ability is fine. Decent blast radius and you have to be in a closed area to use it effectively. My only problem is with the Warlock. I strongly think that it is Over powered. The super charge that is. The reason being is that basically it acts like a instant kill bomb with a huge radius and once someone decides to throw their magical projectile at you, they've one that battle because there is no way to avoid it. If it had a smaller blast radius or a steeper damage drop of it would be just fine. I asked my friends about this subject and most of them agreed with me, while a few said it was fine. I want to here the communities opinion also.

  • Honestly, I've been able to avoid the blast from the Warlock nova bomb pretty easily. It has a decent wind up an telegraph. The Titan's I find is a lot stronger. The speed at which it comes out, coupled with the ability to adjust that with sprinting and jumping makes it a force to be reckoned with! Overall though, the supers aren't usable often enough to make a huge swing in pvp.

    • Please call them supers, not super charges. when the screen says super charged, it's saying your super IS charged. not that YOU are super charged. what i think should be changed is the titan super. if they panic super you, you're pretty much dead. if you do kill them while they cast their super, they keep it. The hunter doesn't have the same luxury, and I'm pretty sure the warlock doesn't either.

      • Nah, what's the point of being a warlock if you don't have unequaled arcane might? I hate getting blown up with that trash from afar and seeing that it killed 3 other people too, but it's fitting.

      • I'll agree that the golden gun requires more skill, but it also has better range and precision than all supercharged powers (to my knowledge). When I use nova bomb, I don't have much control over where it goes, other than it's lobbed in a somewhat predicable arc somewhere into the ground front of me. I've had people jump over or out of the way of my nova bomb, kill me before I made the throw, or just missed miserably. It still takes practice, and you only get to practice it when you're supercharged. Now, the golden gun? Getting three shots of pure murder under a time limit sounds like a good deal. It takes skill in shooting, and if you're a hunter, you're always practicing your shooting.

      • All supers are meant to killer their target, not wound, or hurt but kill. I think it should be left as it is

      • What would you prefer the warlock ability to be? A rabbit from a hat? Or perhaps a card trick? Maybe you gotta find which cup hides the sweetie? Mmmmmm bet you like the sweetie idea.

      • While warlocks and titans have their area supers they also have a more supporting super. If you think about it there power hit or DPS super fits perfect. No need to nerf it. Plus I know you where mainly talking about warlock.

      • This is stupid, the warlocks nova bomb acts the way it does on purpose. The golden gun is meant to be aimed as its own variation, as is the titan with his charge-in style fist of havoc. I can't tell you how many times I've missed with the nova bomb, so don't start on it bring un-dodgeable

        • I think the warlocks super is fine. I've missed with it quite a few times and even if it is stronger, it only makes sense since the warlock is the most vulnerable of the 3 characters armor wise.

        • Lets look at this not only in PvP but also in pve the warlocks super insta kills part groups that all 3 shoots of the golden gun can't even kill 1 same with the Britain its not a question of if it unbaleneced but how should we fix it also its wind up is much quicker then golden gun or arc bade. Also look at melles they can also heal them self a and recharge the entire class needs a tone down for both PvP and pve to be fair

        • If the warlock super was to get nerfed, the titan's fist of Hawick needs to be nerfed too along with ark blade, the warlock's radiance needs a buff, say - increased weapon damage as well

        • In all fairness, they are supposed to win that fight. They earned a super to make them more powerful than their opponent. And saying the Warlock's voidwalker ability doesn't take skill compared to a Hunter isn't very fair considering the Hunter is almost always guaranteed three kills. I've only had three kills ONCE with the warlock super.

              I think it's fine. All the supers are powerful. They're supposed to kill you if you get in the way of them. This is pretty much the same answer I gave to a post earlier asking if people think blade dancer should be nerfed. It seems like every time someone gets killed in PVP they take to the forums to try n get it nerfed. Every time something gets nerfed it just makes PVE harder and PVP players will just go n find something else to cry about. It will end up making PVE impossible and everyone in the crucible will be running around tickling each other.

              • Ive gotten away from only 2 nova bombs in this game. The only way in my opinion to get away from them is blink any other ability wont help you. All you have to to do is blink away from them the times i got away from nova bombs is when i blinked behind them.

              • Warlocks are not overpowered hunters are warlocks are just unpredictable cause you don't know if they will self revive but the nova bomb does take skill to use and I can be avoided I've done it several times so people need to stop complaining about shit being overpowered cuz you people are the reason thing get nurfed and ruins the game for everyone else that thinks its just fine the way it is so either just play the game and stop crying about it please or find something else to play
