Coming November 29th. Today's Dev Diary revealed two new Store-only consumables: Bandages for broken legs and Reconnaissance Reports to let you driect your skirmish soldier more often.
A new type of consumable item is being introduced in the November Update, Class Consumables. Let’s take a look at what they are, how to get them and whether they are worth using.
What are Class Consumables?Unlike food, tokens and other consumables, class consumables give bonuses specific to your class. For example, a Battle Tonic makes a Captain battle-readied for 10 seconds, allowing them to use skills like Devastating Blow and Pressing Attack. Duration and cooldown vary by consumable.
How do you get them?Class consumables will be made by crafters or purchased from the store. Not every consumable is available at all crafting tiers - check the crafting vendors for recipes.
An interesting design choice showing up on Bullroarer is to make the minimum level for using store-bought class consumables lower than the crafted version with the same stats, as in the Minstrel Sheet Music example below. Remember, everything on Test is subject to change.
Are they worth using?I would say “situationally”. As a minstrel, I’d happily pop a sheet music to get off a big heal while getting beat on a bunch of mobs, by I don’t see using one every fight. I believe many players will feel the same way.
The ListHere’s the current list of class consumables being tested on Bullroarer. Static effects appear on all tiers, while scalable effects are larger with higher tier consumables of the same type. Again, everything on Test is subject to change and may not even make it to Live.
