Very well, got the feeling that i can't achieve much here. Wasted time~
No offence kiku, but i ned a lot of time to write all this and i got the feeling that nothing of it or merely 5% is good in your eyes. If you really want to change something and i only say this because my feeling says me this, then you shouldn't be so focused about your own opinion.
I play Sadi, too & actually i feel pretty OK atm. I deal not most dmg, but not least and also heal not most but still enough. I am air/water btw.
With your suggestion dolls would have even more resists than the sadi has,
dolls would be able to have 200% all resists or even more. They take 50% less aoe dmg. That is just too much for being able to have 6 dolls like that.
About dolls, they are ignored anyways if no other target is in range for the enemy. That should be another proof, that dolls aren't supposed to take all attacks from enemies. You also have to take in account, that osa can't resummon his dead pets. We can. Even if it costs us one round to summon 2 (3) dolls, we can like forever resummon them.
That is why in my opinion dolls should be able to take some hits, but they should also be able to die.(see Explodoll passive, how can that be usefull, if dolls don't die anymore?)
Icons of spells can be changed, easily. Like names can. The heart doesn't really have to be hp actually, it can be any kind of positive effect for the sadida.
Also for sacri+earth abuse, why would that be an abuse? they have to summon 3 puppets with 7AP (1,1,1,weapon 4) they won't have much AP left to do anything else. They won't do more damage than other branches.
About Lone Sadida, yeah you're right. I didn't see that one.
About crit: dolls already have the crit effects in their spells. I think it is actually intended that dolls can crit. But making nettle state give crit is kind of wrong in my opinion.
Crit should be a base stat given to dolls, like dmg is.
I didn't say to nerf it. I suggested to remove it completly.
The extra spells that I suggested would make up for that totally even for the remove of the ap buff.
Sadi's turn already take longer than others atm. You wan't that dolls like Greedy or Super Powerful attack 2 times by default (2AP spells). Then you want Nettle State to give 6AP. Our turn would take more than doubled its time as now.
You want dolls to act according to their angry look in nettled state. Giving them the possibility to deal more than triple as much dmg as they do now may be an possibility to show this anger, but this is too strong and makes sadi's turn take much longer. That is why I am totally against it, even playing Sadida myself.
Giving dolls special spells for nettled state is not only a cooler solution, because it shows their anger even better, it is also a more balanced one and it includes your tactical thingy.
About summon dmg+dmg boost, see these sets:
1. None of those have air/earth damage on them.
2. Celest Strich set actually gives more SummonDMG+DMGBoost (even if you take 4pieces vs. 4pieces)than Dragon Pig craft set. This can't be intented!
Example(1v1 PVP, 10AP water Sadi, 500% damage boost):
Your new Sadi summons 3 Greedys in Round 1 (1AP+1AP+1AP+4AP) =7AP
Your new Sadi casts Sic em more:
All of your dolls get +3AP +50% crit and so on.
They run to enemy, deal 3(3 dolls)*20(Greedy spell)*3(has 7AP, casts 3times)*1.25(1,5*0,5 crit) damage. That would add up to 225 basedmg(WTF!)
Nettle state ends.
Enemy procs 2 times Green Guard, your current dolls have lvl 10 nettled.(Enemy didn't attack dolls, because they have like mega resists and can't die anymore)
You summon 1 more greedy (3AP) and 1 Inflatable(4AP), cast sic em more 3AP 1WP
Your 4 Greedys are at the enemy and attack, 3 of them have +6AP, +100% crit, so:
+ one greedy dealing 20*3*1.25=75 basedmg.
Your healing puppet has +3AP, too, so it heals you for 2*30*1.25 baseheal = 75baseheal.
Add this up: You deal 575 basedamage and heal yourself for 75.
Take Damage boost into account:
You deal 2875 damage (without taking resists into account) and heal yourself for 375.
Enemy gives up saying. WTF TOO OP
You are smiling, enemy writes to Ankama
Ankama doesn't read it
Enemy gets upset
Enemy quits Wakfu
Do you understand now what I mean?
