A Detailed Guide Getting You Ready for the Ability Changes Coming in the 30th Anniversary Patch


In anticipation of the upcoming anniversary patch, which is set to release on March 27th, 2018 and fully introduce an overhauled ability system – Blizzard has been doing a lot of testing with various different effects. If you are curious what all these changes will mean for your favorite heroes or want to find out how they affect ranked play – this article is here to help!

The “destiny 2 class ability cooldown” is a game that allows players to choose their class, and then customize the abilities they can use. This guide will go over how to get ready for the changes coming in the 30th anniversary patch.


Introduction

This isn’t a debate about whether the future changes are good or bad; rather, it’s a guide to assist players in preparing for them. To go along with this, I’m planning on releasing a video that goes through build construction and how to get started with it quickly, but we’ll need some time to play around with the new abilities and their timers first. Hold on to your hats, because this is going to be a lengthy one. I’ll try my best to break it up into pieces so you may scroll down and stop when you get to the part you’re interested in.


What Has Changed?

Some abilities, such as Flux grenade, are growing more powerful at the cost of a longer cooldown timeframe. Other abilities, such as bolt-type grenades, have had their efficacy reduced in exchange for shorter cooldowns, allowing them to be spammed more easily. To compensate for the adjustments, all abilities will get a 15% damage boost in PvE, while in PvP, the efficiency of almost all ability replenishing channels will be lowered in half to prioritize gunplay and strategic ability deployment. Note that the devs have said that this is not a return to D2’s Y1 mode, since they have no wish to do so again, but abilities should now become more of a power-play moment, with their usefulness increased in some manner. Some abilities will have their effectiveness increased to enable them to one-shot, while others, such as shoulder charge, will lose this ability. However, you may still allow them to do so if you integrate it into the game (Peregrine Greaves, Dune Marchers, or Synthoceps). As a result, skills that have lost their baseline one-shot capability have gained some usefulness. Shoulder Charge now has greater aim help while landing it, and when used as a neutral game movement ability, it now pushes you farther. The one-shot feature of Handheld Super Nova is gone, but it now has the extra benefit of forcing foes back, much like the melee of the middle tree void walker. Expect to see a lot of footage of people shoving other people down cliffs or into geometries to kill them.


Being Aware of Your Cooldowns

With changes to ability regeneration across the board, knowing your cooldown reduction amounts from various sources in the game is more critical than ever. With the patch coming tomorrow, these numbers may vary, but we can still take today’s values as a decent starting point. Apart from your intelligence and your super, we shouldn’t anticipate any substantial changes here, but we’ll get to it in a later section.

The default cooldown of your ability is considered in as tier 3 in the stat that governs it. Lowering the number to less than 3 decreases the cooldown to less than the default. Keep this in mind when you log in tomorrow and mouse over an ability to see its default cooldown. Running tier 0, 1, or 2 in the controlling stat of that ability will actually decrease it than the default.

I realized that creating tables for the percent decrease for each cooldown tier for our stats as they are in-game currently would be pointless. It’s probable that things will be extensively revised by tomorrow. Given a result, I feel that the information on armor mod related cooldowns would be more useful to you all, as we already have evidence that they are generally unaffected, with the exception of a 50% decrease in PvP effectiveness. I won’t provide a whole list in this article, but you can get a list of all mods/perks and how they influence cooldowns here. edit#gid=67704318 - A Detailed Guide Getting You Ready for the Ability Changes Coming in the 30th Anniversary Patch

    • Wellmaker Explosive
      • Solar elemental wells are created by scoring two or more kills via explosive damage within two seconds of each other. Explosive damage is accounted for by grenades. It’s a good match with Well of Ordnance.

    • Wellmaker Reaping
      • Your next weapon kill will create a Void elemental well after you’ve used your class ability. It goes nicely with the Well of Utility mentioned above.

Hybrid & Stasis

Before I go into detail on stasis armor changes, I’d want to provide a little background. Unlike Arc, Solar, and Void, Stasis does not have a special ability associated with it. Stasis, on the other hand, is a hybrid armor affinity that enables you to replenish any of your ability energy, but at a lower effectiveness than fully outfitted builds that specialize on a certain stat in the other affinities. Because of this, this is the finest generalist armor affinity to choose. If you’re fresh to the game, Stasis armor is the best option until you’ve earned other modifications.

  • Helmet
    • Protection of Electricity
      • Supers may produce up to 25% more Orbs of Power.
  • Arms
    • Melee Kickoff
      • In PvP, using your melee ability restores your melee ability, albeit with reduced efficiency. It’s possible to stack for decreasing rewards.
      • In PvE, 15%/15%/25 percent
      • In PvP, 7.5 percent/12.5 percent
      • Note that this cannot be utilized in conjunction with Heavy Handed or any exotic/subclass ability that provides more than one melee charge.
    • Launching a Grenade
      • In PvP, using your grenade ability restores your grenade ability, albeit with reduced effectiveness. It’s possible to stack for decreasing rewards.
      • In PvE, 15%/15%/25 percent
      • In PvP, 7.5 percent/12.5 percent
      • Note that this cannot be used with Firepower or an exotic/subclass ability that offers multiple grenade charges.
  • Legs
    • The Restoration Orbs
      • When you pick up an Orb of Power, it restores ability energy to your least charged ability.
      • X percent – Needs to be tested; please let us know if you have evidence in the comments.
  • Item of Class
    • Start-Up Utility
      • In PvP, using your class ability restores your class ability with reduced efficiency. It’s possible to stack for decreasing rewards.
      • In PvE, 15%/15%/25 percent
      • In PvP, 7.5 percent/12.5 percent
    • Finisher for Restorative Work
      • To recover X percent of your least charged ability energy, use 10% of your super energy.
      • This is terrible; never use it. Because of this, the number is uncertain.
  • Combat Techniques
    • Shards of the Elements
      • Stasis shards are treated the same as Stasis elemental wells. Has a lot of ramifications for various CwL or Elemental Well setups.
    • In terms of ability recovery, other Stasis battle modifications aren’t worth noting.

Other

In terms of ability cooldowns, there are two affinity-agnostic armor mods worth noting, although spelling them out would be a pain. Instead, I’ll leave you with the following images:


Perks for Weapons

  • Demolitionist
    • This perk restores grenade energy after you kill someone with a weapon.
      • For main and heavy weapons, grenade energy is 10%; for special weapons, it is 20%.
  • Transfer of Energy
    • When you successfully block with a sword, you get energy for your class ability.
      • It’s difficult to narrow down an exact number, and it’s not really worth utilizing. Only mentioned for the sake of completeness.
  • Thresh
    • When landing kills with a weapon equipped with this perk, the super cooldown is reduced.
      • Primary and heavy weapons provide 1% super energy, special weapons provide 1.5 percent, and all PvP kills provide an extra 1%.
  • Wellspring
    • When using a weapon with this perk, it restores all ability energy.
      • All uncharged abilities are restored by 7.5 percent. Only one ability will get the full 7.5 percent if it is uncharged. When an ability has numerous charges, such as Stasis Hunter melee, the game crashes.

Intellect and Superpowers

When it comes to the planned modifications, we presently have the least information. For the time being, be aware that super generation is being pushed toward active rather than passive benefits. Dealing non-self-inflicted harm increases your super meter. Your supers will be divided into cooldown levels, and they are subject to change as Bungie may shift them about in future patches. Keep in mind that one-time supers will have a shorter duration than roaming supers. Each super’s levels are as follows:

  • 5th tier (Fastest)
    • The Radiance Well
    • Dawn’s Ward (After Void 3.0 coming in Witch Queen)
  • Tier 4
    • Barrage of blades
    • Squall and Silence
  • Tier 3
    • Shadowshot
    • Maul of the Burning
    • Staff of the Arc
    • Nova Bomb is a kind of nuclear weapon.
    • Thundercrash
  • Tier 2
    • Gun of the Golden Age
    • Reaching Chaos
    • Warp to Nova
    • Stormtrance
    • Daybreak
    • Shield of the Sentinel
  • 1st level (Slowest)
    • Blades that are Spectral
    • Havoc’s Fist
    • Sol’s Hammer
    • Quake on the ice sheet
    • Winter’s Fury

What Now?

I hope this tutorial has given you some insight into how you may incorporate this new system of abilities. While I just provided class-agnostic cooldown reduction sources, Niris’ spreadsheet has a thorough list for each and every subclass ability in the game. I have linked to this, but I’ll do it again here.

I really like the website d2armorpicker if you’re wanting to construct armor sets based on the information provided. Using the tools on that page, try to locate an Arc set with high strength, Solar with good discipline, Void with a high class ability regulating stat, and Stasis that is well balanced. You may be shocked to learn that you can put together some good, if not divine, builds with the armor you have. Remember that you don’t have to achieve a perfect score in every category. Aim for a 100 in your class ability stat, as well as 100 in discipline or strength, depending on which armor affinity your set belongs to. As usual, strive for a high recovery rate since it is critical to your overall health. Warlocks have a simpler time with this than the other classes.

Once you have this, use Destiny Item Manager to save it to a loadout. With the upcoming API changes in the next patch, tools like this will soon be able to preserve entire and complete loadouts, including armor customizations. A little time spent now to round out certain constructions can save you a lot of grief later. At the touch of a button, you’ll be able to transition from your PvP build to a grenade build. No more switching your modifications around every time you change hobbies by going through 5 armor pieces!

I have earlier guidelines accessible here and here if you want to learn more about how to make builds. I hope this was useful!
