Why are WIS mercs so unpopular currently? I still see Lucion v1s going for 2-3 ammo each. WHAT? This is a 5x random hit merc that does 150% WIS damage per hit from the back row with over 13.5k wis/agi?!?! This guy should be flying off the shelves at 10x ammo or more each!?!? There are actually some very solid WIS mercs out there: Siren, Burnfrost, Lucion, Televangelist. But they seem to be more 'I have an open spot on my team' characters than building blocks for synergistic combinations. Perhaps it is the fact that the only WIS buffer we have is Tigrey and he feels like a waste of a spot. I don't know, I'm just amazed these mercs seem to get tossed to the wayside when their stats are great and thier skills are amazing.
Suggestions for making WIS mercs more viable:
- Add more formations, including a 5-BACK-ROW formation
- Add a decent WIS buffer (Tigrey isn't decent, he's pretty bad actually, there's just nothing else outside of Telepath or Torpid)
- Add a decent WIS lethal (re-releasing Hellcat was a good start)
