Light attack is OP

In many parses LA is over performing compared to class or weapon skills in this game.
Sometimes doing +20% of the total damage.
When ZoS is going to address this and lower their damage?

edit:
Alcast made a guide + test parse with and without LA

    Imagine making thread after thread over light attacks in ESO in 2019.

    Why not many issues are still in game since beta and still didn't get fixed.
    Maybe the new team will fix that rotten legacy.

    Glad you mentioned that Timmy, I'm here today to let you know a secret. When 1 thread get's bogged down by people disagreeing with your OP using logical answers and engaging discussion, don't reply to them or dispute their point, use irrelevant numbers and offer outlandish suggestions, then when things get out of hand, just make a new discussion! It's that easy!

    Atm LA is doing too much dps (about 25% of the parse). This isn't good as LA do much more dmg than some skills (spammable ones).
    I think this is game breaking as LA should be included in the rotation only to get ressources back and not do that much dmg.

    I propose those change:
    • Decrease LA dmg with all weapons by 75%
    • Make LA generate ressources per hit (100 stamina or magicka)
    • Increase the HA dmg by 30% and ressources gained by 10% to compensate the loss in dps from LA and make a place for HA in the rotation.

    I think it is too small damage right now, it should be closer to 30-40% of dps given that it is used every GCD.

    Light attacks used to be meaningless back in the day. A massive patch a couple years ago (can't recall which) made heavy adjustments to light and heavy attacks and how they work/perform. They skyrocketed to the top of most parses and certain very much at the top during actual fights as well. It's just the way ZOS has designed their game and its the way we have to play if we plan to be successful at it.

    When you are doing a light attack .9 out of everyone second you are in combat, yeah, it's going to be a lot of damage; that's kind of the point.

    It takes some level of skill, and furthermore it's so "OP" on mag because vMA staff buffs it, meanwhile on stam it's not even half of what it is.

    It's part of the game, get over it and get better at it... It's not even that hard, and don't say using a controller is too hard because I do .95 lps with a controller.

    Doing 9% of the total dps on like stamcro parse. imo it should do 5% of the dps.
    On mag build it should be 7-10% of the total dps with vMA staff. Otherwise 5% like stam builds

    They buffed light attacks because there are people who have no idea skills exist and using light attacks only.

    But why? All you're saying is random numbers with no evidence to support your suggestion or why you think it makes more sense. Why is your number okay, what makes 7-10% so special or 5% so ideal, I just don't understand why you make threads like this with nothing constructive to say.

    No wonder the dev's have a hard time "listening to feedback".


    What ? You demand constructive arguments and actuall feedback rather then just purely emotional and amateurish statements ? Are You mad ?!
