harder than Crushing Uppercut?

Yes, the Dom's base damage for Seismic Smash is 218.3 and Scrapper base damage for Crushing Uppercut is 218.8 and Seismic Smash has a shorter recharge and activation charge.

Yup.  You either nerf Rage with the resulting tanker/brute drama. Or you don't proliferate and get this thread.

I think a potential solution is bring it to Scrappers with changes and see how it works out before changing Rage on the other ATs. Use Scrappers as test crash dummies. It's a win-win. Scrappers get SS and we can test Rage changes before impacting existing versions of the set.

Yeah, but if it's not OP, we're still in dramaville where tanks won't want the changes proliferated and scraps are upset they're not getting the good SS.

 

The plan for a Rage rework is for the dev team to finish the resist rebalance first, and I inagine the set's not coming over until both are done.

Crushing uppercut has combo level based specials and extra damage though?

 

But you could add time to recharge to balance it if need be.  Or lower the damage.

Rage could be "nerfed" for Scrappers only though. 

 

Recharge times/ base damage could also be rebalanced. 

 

For example.  Rage could be a 62.5 +damage toggle for Scrappers.   Jab could have a 4 second Recharge, Punch 8, Haymaker 12.

You'd need the higher base damage for the SS Stalkers anyhow, since they won't get Rage, because buildup.

I think a small stacking buff may work. Make it stack to 5, add a 20% damage increase for each stack, then have a 2 attack debuff or something. Not as extreme as it is now, but maybe add a -50% damage debuff for those two attacks. Maybe even keep the defense debuff for a short duration too.

They will never fix Rage though.  

 

Never.

I totally forgot to factor that in. Damage for Crushing Uppercut very well might be better.

Whiny ass Tanks and Brutes crying about Rage are the biggest problem to Scrappers getting Super Strength. I say do whatever they wanna do to Rage, and just remove Tankers and Brutes from the game, problem solved.
