I am sure many people (or at least a few) like myself are practically demanding we get our “Glass Cannon” back. Wraith was designed with the small and sleek body capable of sneaking, she had a high amount of damage output (hence the “Cannon” part) and low combat sustainability (hence the “Glass” part). Meaning she could dish out high damage easily however if she stayed in combat she would quickly melt and die due to her squishy-ness.
Wraith used to be extremely agile and deadly, now she’s an overgrown snail. Although still deadly she now is slow as hell and has high sustainability. I hate this about her. Wraith was my favorite Monster by far due to her insane speed and high damage, I dislike being in combat long and hate how I have to just to be able to get strikes. With the new 1 second dome times and Monster changes I would’ve thought she’d be… well… what I’d like to call “fixed” because this version of Wraith, to me, is just broken.
Goliath is a brawler, he is up close and personal and has high damage, Kraken is an aerial damage Monster that stays up in the air and yet deals damage, Behemoth dominates the battlefield with his abilities and is quite scary to fight.
Wraith is now just a glorified Goliath, she has the ability to stay in combat now but she’s practically forced to fight and actually dome herself now. In the past the dome time with her speed was insane and you could never catch a Wraith and now? You can never miss any dome on any Monster unless you actually try or misjudge the 5m gap you have to miss it!
I know many people look back at Wraith at launch and scream OP to the highest of the heavens but I think it was truly how the Wraith was meant to be played. Fix some things and change others a bit and she’ll be as strong as she was at launch and be the glass cannon she is supposed to be, without being OP. Very skilled Hunters are out there now, they can handle it.
Even if TRS is worried that Wraith would be too OP for lower ranks and lesser skilled players, then just wall off Monsters for lower ranks like you do with levels.
Wraith needs to be changed. She needs her speed back and she needs to be the glass cannon she was meant to be, high damage and very high speed but low sustainability in combat. She is not how she is supposed to be now and not many people enjoy it.
- Yes, Bring the ‘Glass Cannon’ back
- No, keep her as is
