Start sprint with an arrow drawn/thrown weapon at the ready?
What do you guys think? I don’t play archers often if at all but I hear that with those weapons in that class once you draw it you cannot begin a sprint. You can, however, move quicker if you are sprinting when you ready your weapon.
I know this is how it currently works with projectile weapons for other classes. Once you ready your weenie knives or oil pots or whatever you cannot begin a sprint so if you lose it you’re kind of stuck.
Currently I don’t see much focused balance around this needing to be the case so I think it would be safe to suggest the possibility of initiating sprint with a projectile at the ready to fire.
What do you guys think?
And to clarify I’m not saying add a new sprint or increased speed or anything like that. Just give the current speed increase that you already get if you sprint before drawing back your whatever projectile.
It would be overpowered don’t you think?
I love how you cannot sprint while in ‘throwing stance’. It makes you think twice about whether you should go ranged or melee in the encounter. It becomes a risk (less footwork) with a higher payoff (unblockable).
Also I thought it was a bug that you can initiate a throw from sprint? I play javelin a lot and I thought it should automatically go to normal walking speed when you initiate a throw. But currently if you do it while sprinting you can continue sprinting.
I’d say remove the sprint completely to make it work.
