    I'm really excited about the puppetmaster addition! I wonder if this can be used to reach 0 dmg taken. Analyzer already stacks beyond the 50% cap, so using this might actually be pretty much amazing. now if only they would give us a way of actually using some kind of AoE...as of right not nothing is AoE so your stuck killing 1 at a time no matter what. Of all the frames that needs an AoE adjustment I think that the Valoredge definately would make some sense since right now there is no particular use for it (it deals very little damage and is only useful for a couple of fights in the entire game...and even then you would do better using the rng frame for it's incredible DD potential and only popping out the VE if you need a break from tanking to rest up or something.

    AoE voke or something would be awesome, but I would like to see pld get that before puppetmasters for sure. I personally will use this attachment though on my rng frame as it could always use some more defense to keep it going, I wouldn't trade it in for the Shurzan (i didn't spell that right lol), but still it's a decent adjustment.

    Would also love for them to make it so manuevers were not attached to ws's >.> makes the flame holder practically pointless...although I was reaching 2700 dmg consistantly against dolls by spamming it a few days ago, that with barrage can put out some pretty nice dmg.

    Yep i agree with you there Hak, SE has given pups some lovin. It seems that SE is continuing down the road of less is more, with all the reduction of job ability recast timers. I think this is a great way of pumping out the damage numbers and keep people happy.

    Im waiting for bst changes soon cyclops
