Tray swap needs to be oGCD

Recommended Posts

For Archdruid, locking mandatory tray swaps behind the GCD makes the class's core mechanic incredibly cumbersome- approaching unplayable in general use, which is a big part of why you pretty much only see ADs as bomb specialists. I realize you don't want to enable unlimited instant swapping and swapping back, but you can solve that problem by having each tray swap put just the other tray swaps into cooldown for two seconds or whatever a reasonable length of time is.

Agreed, one button would be far better. I get that separate ones are good for classes with 3 or more trays (are there any?) but for two trays, we need a one button switch option. Also, something to make it more obvious which bar we are on? It's kind of subtle and often in the heat of combat I get confused as to which one I'm on.

Ive never... really seen this as an inconvienence?

I ever rarely have problems with the life and death tray as an archdruid and let me tell you right now, Archdruid is not a exclusively a bomb sepecialist

bombs deal around 10k with full damage bonus to 40% and around 400 ap, if people even step on them to begin with, i find it much better to play storm domain and go with a corruption dot build since these dots can deal massive damage to multiple enemies

Build:
Half-Elf Archdruid of Storm • Crowcaine Build

if you are very interested in playing a bomb druid than i will recommend you a dark domain stake build:

Half-Elf Archdruid of Dark • Crowcaine Build

You are doing 10,000 damage with a blighted healing orb?  I have 487 AP and mine do like 250-300 damage.  What type of gear are you using?

Also, I would like to set one button to toggle between the life and death trays; going for two separate buttons is annoying.

 

Random question, anyone not going Archdruid for their Druid? 

This goes for all classes that can swap trays, not sure why they do not allow this, horrible.

This is an interest take on AD, In terms of doing 10K. How many orbs are you spawning to stack this kind of damage?

Absolutely, the trey swapping feels bad because you have to wait for gcd. Add the ridiculous amount of dmg you take for over healing and arch druid just feels bad. It would certainly be right up my ally if it wasn't so poorly designed. What a bummer. Really needs a rework.

If I could use a staff for storm caller I'd do that and never look back.  Arch druid is too damn clunky with the trays being on GCD.

Blight allows you to blows bombs to a maximum of 15 orbs, nature's force blows up the orbs by stepping on them but they are reduced by 25% damage compared to blight
my orbs do around 500 plus crits which hit around 700, however i usually put in 5 extra bombs in there with the help of gaeas growth and then step on them to add to the 15 

collectively they do a combined total of 10k or so

How do you do that when neither of the builds you linked include Gaea's Growth?

What type of gear u running as mine do 500 crits and ive got like 40 more int than either of your builds and using a 90dmg staff wearing leather with like 30% dmg lol. Doing nowhere near your dmg.

completely agree with thread. I had the same problem with ranger as well and its why i like my confessor the best. Archdruid is such a fun class but man is it terrifying to get stuck in the life tray onGCD. hell id even take the action queueing so id at least KNOW that ill be going to death tray as soon as possible.

I actually found a good use for it being on the global cooldown.  It let me make a macro to bar swap with a single button :)

I dont recommend gaeas growth cause I know most of the people here run in either solo or small comp groups

I run with my guild in huge fights so gaeas growth is essential, I take it over remnant of gaea

My staves are  just of generally good stats i guess? armor pen to nature and around 100 weapon dmg usually some sort of crit strike, I save these staves for big fights and usually keep my 80 to 90's for solo roaming

I also have another build in which i take storm avatar and kinetic bloomer for max dmg output

Tray swapping as an Arbiter is extremely cumbersome.  We have a bar with block and a bar with dash and the time required to switch between them is unnecessary and uncommon in most games, in my experience.

I'm used to playing with many skills, but the time required to get to them in CF is too long.
