Last year, we committed to making changes to the Wound mechanic. This was due to player feedback that it was hard to understand, occupied a niche role in Dauntless combat, and was generally underwhelming. I’m pleased to say we’re ready to roll out our changes to wounding and the war pike in 1.6.0, on April 8!
We set out to achieve the following goals when redesigning the wound mechanic:
Give wounding an ‘event’, with better visibility and more impact on gameplay Separate wounds from part breaks, so that wounding is its own mechanic, rather than an optional support for the other. Make the benefits from exploiting a wounded part easy to understand for all Slayers Increase the viability and use of the war pike
With 1.6.0, when you wound a Behemoth part, you’ll see a large plume of aether escaping. You’ll also find yourself moving faster, attacking faster, hitting harder, and regaining stamina more quickly. This is the Aether Rush, and it represents Slayers using the aether released from a wounded behemoth to empower their weapons. You are essentially harnessing the power of your opponent and using it against them.
Other players can attack the part you’ve wounded in order to enter aether rush themselves. They’ll have to act fast, as Behemoths heal quickly and a part only remains wounded for a short time!
A part can be wounded even if it’s broken, and breaking a wounded part won’t end its wounded state. No more worries about hitting the right part at the right time. Wound away, and aether rush to victory!
Here’s a sneak peak at the 1.6.0 Patch Notes for more clarity:
War pike is the primary wounding weapon, so we took this opportunity to make some balance and quality of life changes to it.
The special meter no longer increases damage; ins... keep reading on reddit ➡
Somewhat of a shotty source but has been making headway across Ole Miss groupme chats. Pike can not seem to catch a break as of recently. But also, fuck Pike. If this is true as it says, this could be a blight to Ole Miss Greek Life, one of the biggest in the south.
Edit : The guy is known as being a douchey drama blogger and usually what he says doesn’t really have a grain of salt, but being a student at Ole Miss, and being in several group chats with other fraternities and sororities this is something we heard about long before this article was posted.
Im on season 3 rn and I hate Pike so much ugh. I’ve literally never wanted a character to die so badly.
No pike or anything, he just shows up with a ton of other Dregs, but he's the only Pike Dreg. Get my man a pike already.
Pike just posted a video on IG with both her and Daniel amidst filming trailers in Prague. I can’t imagine it being anything other than WoT they’d be there for. https://www.instagram.com/p/COLXAGuHfgo/?igshid=j12v0or6xp13
Hopefully this means he’s finished filming his parts for Searching 2, or that he’ll be in Prague as needed.
(I don’t know how to post videos by without linking IG, sorry guys)
To the guy that comes in front of my apartment everday and plays the trumpet: PLEASE STOP.
I'm writing this post because I cannot get out of my apartment in time to talk to the guy directly, with my slow elevators and long apartment lobbies.
Your trumpet pierces through my shitty apartment walls and my shitty earbuds, and distracts my unfocused mind, and more importantly, it wakes my girlfriend up, who sleeps during the day for her night-shift. It also seems to make my neighbor's baby cry, which sucks for them as well.
To everyone else reading this, if you know this man, please ask him to stop. It was great the first few days, but it's been more than a month now.
Then they debated: should they use the cookie-bait to trap the blue one next, or should they actively hunt the big yellow bird?
