Context for anyone who havent seen one, well guideshot once upon a time fires fan of arrows with enough Multi Atk and EAC(pretty much pistols but better). The devs nerfed it for balancing purposes and thus we ended up with the postnerf guideshot(now).
It just so happens that some set affixes are being added to empower underused skills like the smokescreen and the new mercenary that I thought, wow would it be nice to have set affixes that do this for every mainhand like the mentioned prenerfed guideshot as a set affix?
Basically, I am advocating to add more set affixes that modifies/empowers your skills to make things new and exciting. Kinda like Path of Exile gem links.
Imagine Whirlwind with greater AoE and damage the longer it is channeled then explode? Or Ricochet bullets onhit explodes? Or something like laytraps dealing ElementCrit and then explodes?
Enough explosion thought, imagination is the only the only limit! Set affix that increases chakram thrown? KnightsCharge sends out an image of you to charge enemies? A set affix that modify Meteor into Rockblast? How cool is that?
Thanks for the read!
