Owning a Geminititan myself, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it would get Immunity in 1.9, after the massive buff it got in 1.8 (being able to one shot Dracocera).
But, honestly…I feel like this makes it way too similar to Ardentismaxima. Given that we only have 2 sauropod Uniques at the moment, I think it would be better if both sauropods were as different as possible so that both of them can fulfill their own niche, rather than being almost completely interchangeable.
That aside, I also think that Wounding (DoT) as a tactic has gotten worse this update. While Erlikospyx and Pterovexus did get buffed, their DoT abilities aren’t as useful due to the prevalance of Immunes as well as the fact that in the upper arenas, they only have 2 top tier tanks they can really take down with their DoT abilities - Dioraja and Tryko. While, yes, those are dangerous threats that do need countering, keeping a bleeder on your team solely for dealing with those 2 can be a bit like keeping Postosuchus on your team to deal with Dracocera.
(Yes, I know they have other uses apart from anti-tanks, but you get the idea)
Not to mention that both creatures can’t even kill Indoraptors as effectively any more, given how Indoraptors can simply ignore Distractions…
What do you guys think?
Should Geminititan lose Immunity?
- Yes, remove Immunity and buff Geminititan somewhere else
- No, keep Immunity
Edit: Just to clarify, I’m not saying Gemini should be nerfed, or that it should lose the speed buff it got in 1.9. I’m more targeting the fact that, thanks to Immunity, Gemini and Ardentis are almost indistinguishable, which I think is a bad thing. Should Gemini lose Immunity, it should get buffed, probably in health and damage as well as maybe getting Distracting Strike/Impact over Instant Distraction, to compensate. I want to keep Gemini at roughly its current level of relevance, except with a different role from Ardentismaxima.
Edit2: As part of its buff package, I wouldn’t entirely mind Gemini keeping Immunity to Distraction/Immunity to Stuns, so it can deal with Tryko/Thor. This post is more aimed at Immunity to DoT, as I feel that 1) having that makes it too similar to Ardentis and 2) it sort of destroys the point of having DoT, which is supposed to be an anti-tank tactic (especially aimed at very high health tanks, a la Gemini).
