Hello Bungie, I wanted to make this request to inform some things that I wish were different specifically about the balance for the exotic glaives. I spent along time trying to get through the reshaping quests to unlock the pattern and spent countless hours running wellspring to get the Deepsight resonance weapons (which I think should drop more frequently) I think the overall creativity on all three glaives is amazing!! I love the perks here’s my problem. They all have amazing perks but the use is very limited, it takes forever to charge any kind of glaive it takes 6 shots to fully charge the glaive and the maximum capacity is pathetic the glaives max ammo with extended mag and chest reserves allows maybe 25 shots but if it takes 6 shots generally +1 to actually proc the perk. I can only use that 3 times before using the ammo I wanted to note that it’s impossible to use these perks with any exotic glaive in the crucible you start with limited special as it is. Not enough to fully charge the glaive. I have some ideas on how you could balance/rework the glaives to increase performance. Suggestion #1 increase ammo capacity and reduce the amount of hits it takes to charge the glaive fairly simple but it would allow more time to take advantage of the perk without having to suffer as much. Suggestion #2 final blows from projectile generate more charges to the glaive I like this idea because it promotes guardians to use the glaive as functioned they could hit with the melee then kill with the projectile and that reduces the amounts of charges. Saving ammo and then being able to take advantage of the perk more often. suggestion #3 kind of like frenzy when you kill with melee kills it adds a multiplier after receiving max stacks you then shoot en enhanced projectile that deals more damage and charges the glaive based on the number of stacks. I hope these ideas encourage to give these unique glaives a better chance than they are performing right now. With any of the suggestions mentioned I think one thing that would help regardless . When any exotic glaive is fully charged. it should not take the shot from the reserve when using the perk that makes it so special! what’s the point of using an exotic slot for a glaive if there’s is such a steep cost to use the perk that makes it worthwhile. instead it generates that perk for free when fully charged. Resetting back to taking from reserves after the perk is used. I really think that the exotic glaives deserve more since each one has great potential. **Please note these are only suggestions I’m only trying to give ideas to enhance the experience for other players I hope you can take these suggestions and work within your means to find out how to balance everything. Thanks for letting us make these post I do understand that this takes more time out of your busy schedule to listen to your fans.

All glaives take 4 shots to charge, even the exotic ones. As far as the exotic ones in particular go, the biggest problem isn't ammo capacity or reserves, but that their perks are tied to having a [u]full[/u] shield bar, and using the shield for any reason immediately removes your ability to use the exotic perk until you fully charge it again. Personally, I think the best ways to make the exotic glaives more useful is removing the need to have a full shield charge to use the perk while making the perk last longer/ get stronger the more shield you have, or completely separating the exotic perk from the shield bar.
