I haven't grabbed a pack since betrayal so I'm thinking of getting one of these. Leaning towards the blue/black one though.
Its the first time I think both packs are good, I haven't really liked most of the ones I've seen. Don't think you can do wrong.
Changing in the production_config.ini does nothing.
It can also be kind of fucked when a portal spawns relatively close to the pump. I also had a 4 portal one where they were all on their own path, only met up at the pump and I couldn't defend that.
Thanks for this update. Might take some time before folks start realizing which mine builds are best.I'm playing a generic crit mine Saboteur. Currently using Pyroclast Mines and I think I might stick with them. Very glad about the change to mine mechanics. Throwing is so much more comfortable than placing them. Throwing speed is really nice from the start, too.
Works well with the leage mechanic too, but very divergent layouts are tough for me still. Minions, totems and AoE degen builds can probably just camp the pump.
Reservation mechanic: Fine, but if you have to press a mana flask you're twisting your fingers unless you rebind your keys to make it more comfortable. Dunno what to do about this yet. Thinking of just pumping mana regen. If I ditch the Skitterbots I could go MoM.
Stormblast Mine: good to start with. Desperate for more area.
Icicle Mine: could be really strong with projectile scalling (and chain). Good for league mechanic.
Pyroclast Mine: melts bosses so far. Dominus' 2nd form died in 2 seconds.
Skitterbots: too slow to trigger mines. Had hoped to have them handle that while I throw and dodge. Might work better with proper supports? Their chill and shock is fine though.
Minefield: Looney Toons animation. Not yet sure how useful it really is, at least with Pyroclast Mines. Will investigate once I've farmed a Tabula.
Sister Clarrissa: her actress just doesn't have enough range for VO work. All I hear is Piety.
Same, started with a cobra lash assassin, decent clear but slow bossing. Got to 55 and decided to get my already created witch. Don't even bother to upgrade items, just looking for color sockets and the experience is so much better.
