    Default Easy balance for Inq

    Simple fix to help balance Inq ...

    Doubleshot

    Repeaters benefit 33%
    Dual Xbows benefit 50%
    Single Xbow benefit 100%

    I love my Xbows ... Played mechanic before there were enhancement trees but even I see this current state as unwholesome.

    Devs stated that they are happy with the current state of the inq tree. It's a dead horse topic at this point.

    After the new year you’ll be complaining about alchemists. Inquisitors will be as they are now.

    They're happy because they're still selling Inq, it'll be nerfed into the ground in a year or so.

    Currently Inq fires about as fast as a repeater, so even with 50% DS it'll still be better (though it'll be a lot closer to Gxbow in power), they could honestly do to up repeaters to 50% DS scaling as they've fallen behind other xbows in dps (though they should probably buff long/short bows first, as they're weaker than all xbows).

    FTFY

    The penalty on RXBs needs to go away entirely...it never should've been implemented in the first place, but now even the tenuous original justification for it is completely irrelevant.

    Putting more DS penalties on DXB would only validate that penalty for RXB, and keep them severely and arbitrarily nerfed.

    So are you saying as an optimized ranged character archetype ...

    GXB>dualxbow>repeater for endgame DPS and/or solo reaper play?

    Switching between the first two I'd say based on limited (iconic) testing. And possibly the 6 ranger variant.

    The 6 ranger variant is one I'm going to try for HC reaper points solo ... Auto SA for 4 secs every 6 secs will work nicely especially coupled with extra feats of ranger and SA dice with DWS as well as NHB and or Fusilade.
