Skill Gem Reveal: Blade Flurry

I'm more and more confused about GGG's intention and expected place for these channeled skills. Scorching Ray with its full damage potential right from the start and added increasing resistance debuff make sense in current Blade Fury with its ramp up is going against it. Aiming also seems awkward based on the description and the video did not provide clear view of how aiming would work when you need to clear mobs coming from various directions.

attack, aoe, projectile

maybe


dont think it will have proj tag,

my guess will be:

attack, melee, aoe

Just like lacerate. This way GGG would prevent this to go with LMP/GMP as well as melee splash.

But I do feel that they will also add a line that it can not be used with multistrike. Why you may ask? because they said it will have a build in 50% increase attack speed modifier build it.

YES I support the game, NO I dont agree with many GGG decisions
Atlas of Worlds is the worst thing that happen to POE.
Lab still sucks balls.

To me it just looks like a ranged spell. I don't see anything in the animation that looks like the character is doing any kind of melee attack.

Do my eyes deceive me?


Doesn't matter,the distinction is it gets the damage from a melee weapon.
So the channeled melee skill is a glorified short range spell which uses weapons and is therefore harder to scale than spells. And it deals 120% more lol.. OP by numbers, mechanically terrible.


Literally all GGG had to do was create a channelled strike support gem, which allows you to "charge up" more multipliers by channeling power into your attack.

- Makes melee interesting
- Has benefits outside of the attack speed meta
- Allows status modification
- Introduces better risk/reward

I'm a better designer than the entire GGG team who just produces modifications to incinerate/lightning tendrils and then mixes it with a skill from another game.

Lmao

Dead game.

with aiming i think it will be similar to other non name lock skills.
You just hold the button and spam it, while spinning around to target various mobs

I know its annoying, but that first sentence in the announcement...

"Content Update 2.4.2 is just around the corner and contains three new channeled skills Last week we revealed the mechanics of the Scorching Ray Skill Gem."

should be formatted like so:

"Content Update 2.4.2 is just around the corner and contains three new channeled skills, last week we revealed the mechanics of the Scorching Ray Skill Gem."

Or:

"Content Update 2.4.2 is just around the corner and contains three new channeled skills. Last week we revealed the mechanics of the Scorching Ray Skill Gem, today we're revealing the second channeled skill from this update: Blade Flurry."

It looks weird hm ... will see in practise
I can't wait for the mechanics explanation thread like Scorching Ray had. If it is considered a weapon attack and if the speed modifier mentioned in the description is a More modifier without having to use multistrike I think this may become the CoC attack of choice.
