Just got back.. And.. Umm.. Why was Fafnir Scale nerfed? DB Build is like mid tier at best in current meta even with that armor. There's like a couple of game breaking builds.. But its DB that got nerfed.
Dragon Breath build is NOT the current RK meta, you can easily quadruple or more the damage output using Ignition Break with much cheaper equipment. Even Wind Cutter can be as powerful than Dragon Breath with just a +9 Black Ribbon and some ACD reduction after the latest update. If Fafnir is reverted to the original effect it will help newer players to get to playing this build.
Honestly, later on episode 17.2 Automatic Armor with 2 DB enchant + TGK will have similar output with this armor. Only lacking the ACD reduction. I personally don't mind wasting the additional refine on my own Fafnir as long as it becomes more accessible to other RK players.
P.S.: ACD reduction isn't a gamebreaker for DB RK as the animation is annoyingly long even at max ASPD. So it was pointless to cap the ACD on the armor in the 1st place.
Not sure why this item was nerfed, DB RK isn't even top tier in PVM, WoE, or PVP. Other jRO items are way more powerful and other classes are so much crazier in terms of damage output, maybe we should give DB RK some more love and revert this to its original effect.
