Kraken ability usage


#1

Krakens abilities need a slight Cooldown inbetween useage they can be used as a combo way to quickly compared to other monsters basically incapping a hunter instantly


Can people play something other then kraken?
[Poll] Kraken Aftershock
#2

Aftershock and Lightning Strike already have a long cast time, while Banshee Mines are getting arm time and are already easily destroyed by anyone with an automatic weapon.


#3

Other monsters can combo quickly too.

Behemoth - Tongue grab, hard strike, fissure, lava bomb.
Goliath - Jump-hammer, charge, rock throw (should be close to death unless healed a bit), leap smash/flame.

Kraken’s abilities are easier to dodge with the changes. I actually recorded some gameplay of me as trapper vs kraken, pretty much dodging 80-90% of his abilities. It takes timing and awareness of your surroundings, and at times a little help from your team.

I’d like some more info on what combos you’re specifically referring to.

EDIT: Looks like I didn’t record that game after all :frowning:

Another crier out there. LS cast time - 2.1 seconds, Aftershock - near the same. And you call for even more wind-up between them? I suggest you look at other monster’s chaining abilities - every monster has it.

It does look ridiculous with the animation for vortex and then banshee mines looks like kraken is about to sneeze.


#6

Im not saying nerf the kraken just with how much damage they do and how fast and effective they can be its just a little cray cray


#7

I’m not saying nerf anything I just find the animation being cut short funny looking.


#8

Animation does look weird lol
