Sloads now has a los rule added to it, can you say see the proc in the air and then run the hell away from it to outrange it or something?

    Good luck avoiding it from melee. In my opinion Sload should get the "Widowmaker treatment".

    Widowmaker:
    (5 items) When your alchemical poison fires, you drop a spore on the ground in front of you that explodes after 1 seconddealing 7740 Poison Damage to all enemies within 5 meters of it

    Now imagine if Sload´s Semblance worked the same. If you´ve played Summerset and done some of the questlines there, you would´ve noticed the Sea Sloads spawning these purple/black orbs from time to time. So here´s what a the new Sload set could look like:

    When dealing damage to an enemy, you´ve a 10% chance to spawn a necrotic orb (or whatever they´re called) on the ground in front of you that explodes after 2 seconds, dealing 853 oblivion damage every second for 6 seconds to all enemies within 5 meters. This can occur once every 10 seconds

    that would be better

    I say out right just delete the set and be done with it. It's useless as it is.

    Giving it the Widowmaker treatment wont work, if it's spawning as an orb then it will have to do burst damage, 5k oblivion damage all at once, which will not be healthy.

    Just delete the damn set and be done with it.

    Edit: Why only 2 seconds before it explodes, that would be too short a time for l33ts to dodge away, make it like 5 secs or better 30 secs.

    Nah, the orb idea is actually really solid. Same sloads debuff, but telegraphed and avoidable and allows you to put mass pressure if you can time it well or use it in a choke.

    Make it:

    spawn on the enemy (ignoring LoS)
    explode after 1s with a 3m AoE
    deal Oblivion Damage over 5s to all hit (with a 0-tick damage instance)
    stick with the current 6s cooldown...

    and I think it'd be good.

    Anything that gives the enemy some kind of chance to avoid/counter it. But your suggestion isn´t bad either :)

    Great suggestion. If zos doesn't do it, then you know they're keeping sloads op just to sell more copies of summerset

    Guys, let’s just remove Sloads from the game. How about that?

    Can I get refund on the mats cost?

    Same opinion here, @ZOS_GinaBruno , @ZOS_JessicaFolsom , this is good idea how to change this set. Current pts form is strongly favouring stam melee.
