So, people keep arguing that manual mode is superior to legacy. Though that should by all rights be the case, IT IS NOT! In Legacy, your damage output is higher, your attack like 3x faster, and just those two reasons alone make Legacy more powerful because you aren't waiting for skills to cool down. I can kill some things in legacy faster that I could swing twice in manual because of the cool downs. They need to be balanced becuase special abilities as it stands are inefficient, do less damage, amd take longer to execute. Since people are trying to tell me that I'm wrong, I made two videos to prove my point. Here is the second video as its a bit more solid. I can't make it clickable which is also a suggestion in itself to allow

I notice you don't even queue your abilities and wait too long to fire your next one, by the time your second one fires you could have fired your third, killing the giant in the same amount of time as Legacy.
Legacy doesn't need a nerf, you need to get better with EoC as you're not using its full potential.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

I call bullsh*t. Do you somehow not have to wait for cooldowns on your account??? You can 1 hit in legacy and it cannot be done in manual. It doesn't matter if you are fighting a KBD or an imp, special attacks should be more powerful. Its wildy frustrating having people tell me that legacy is better becuase Idc what you say, waiting for cooldowns kills it. Attacks are more powerful in Legacy. Its mind numbing that people are saying differently "Crawling from hell
Fallen from grace"

Looking at your videos you wait too long. If tou tap an ability while it's still in cooldown, it will be executed the moment it's available. There's a setting for this, so it could be that it's not enabled by default.
And using a treshold and certainly an ultimate can easily KO the monsters you've been training on in one hit, hitting probably a lot more than a normal Legacy hit.

Legacy is better against tormented demons and revs. Eoc better for everything else. What is ur ability bar setup? Eoc is better long term dps legacy better short term dps. Try killing something with 200k hp or more. The brightest ideas are the most undervalued.

@KingsAbbot The thing is you have to wait for the ultimates because you must charge the adrenaline. Idk about threshhold moves. Ultimately though I mean you attack faster in legacy and don't have to wait for cooldowns or stronger attacks, so I don't get it. I have tried every melee ability available to me and nothing does anywhere near as much damage as I do in legacy. I even tried against a greater slayer monster or whatever they are and I still did way more in legacy. I don't get your point "Crawling from hell
Fallen from grace"

You're able to use the next ability when the short shared cooldown is gone, but you don't activate your next ability the moment you can. You wait one or two gameticks before tapping the next one, 'losing' damage.
Ability queueing allows you to tap an ability before its cooldown ends to make it fire the moment the cooldown ends. By enabling this in the settings (if you haven't done this yet) you use all the combat time optimaly.

Tresholds deal more damage and take up 15 % adrenaline and need at least 50 % adrenaline. Therefore, they hit even more than normal basic abilties. Ultimates are even stronger, so definitely worth the adrenaline. You're at max adrenaline anyway when you can use them, so better use it so you don't waste the adrenaline of your next basic abilities.

It seems you don't have enough experience yet with EoC, so I suggest you keep on using it so you get better. You should notice the improvements when you get hang of it.
