↖ The Tawhoa's Chosen Ability
The Tawhoa's Chosen ability is a unique feature of the Chieftain rework. When activated, it summons a Mirage Chieftain to aid the player. This Mirage Chieftain performs an attack similar to the one the player is using and can repeat the attack multiple times with a short cooldown. This creates an interesting dynamic in combat, offering additional firepower and support to Chieftain builds.
↖ The Curious Case of Fist of War
The real question arises when considering the interaction between the Tawhoa's Chosen ability and the Fist of War support gem. Fist of War is known for boosting the damage of skills specifically used by the player, but it doesn't affect the damage of other entities that these skills may spawn or support. This raised concerns among players as they wondered whether the Mirage Chieftain's attack would benefit from Fist of War's damage boost.
↖ Trailer Analysis
Upon close examination of the trailer, it becomes evident that the Mirage Chieftain's attack is, indeed, boosted by the Fist of War support. However, there is no visible Fist of War animation above the Mirage, leading to speculation about how the support gem affects the ability. The absence of the animation leaves room for interpretation, but it seems plausible that Fist of War might still boost the damage without displaying the typical animation, which would be a departure from its established mechanics.
↖ Possible Explanations
There are several theories to explain this phenomenon. One possibility is that the Mirage Chieftain's ability is somehow on cooldown for the player while still being available for the Mirage itself. However, this seems unlikely, as it could create confusion and inconsistency in gameplay. Another theory is that the animation was not coded specifically for the Mirage Chieftain, leading developers to choose the animation from General's Cry, which already features slams and strike skills.
↖ Community Reactions
Many players have expressed their desire for Fist of War to have a direct impact on the Mirage Chieftain's attack. They argue that it could make the Chieftain more formidable and exciting to play. Some propose the idea of varying cooldowns based on the type of ability used, allowing for more flexibility and strategic decision-making.
While the trailer offered valuable insights into the Tawhoa's Chosen ability, there are still uncertainties regarding its interaction with Fist of War. The absence of the Fist of War animation above the Mirage Chieftain leaves players pondering its true effect on the skill. As the Chieftain rework approaches, the community eagerly awaits further information and clarification from the developers. Whether the interaction changes or not, one thing is certain - the Chieftain's rework promises to bring exciting new dynamics to the gameplay and provide players with fresh opportunities to explore powerful builds.
