    Hello,

    Lately I have noticed that the pace of buccaneer buffs / quality of life changes has slowed down, whereas in the past the class would get many buffs / quality of life changes nearly every single patch.

    Also, since there is a thread to discuss shadower buffs / quality of life changes, I figured I could do same for buccaneer.

    This thread is to discuss what further changes can be made to help the class. If you would like to discuss bucc nerfs, you can also post here, but there is a thread already dedicated to that topic here:

    https://forum.maplelegends.com/index.php?threads/buccaneer-nerf-when.51192/

    My idea:

    1) Removal of DEX requirement on timeless/reverse burgunt.

    upload_2023-10-7_13-25-34.png

    As it stands, buccaneer is a support class, and they are unable to fully use the dex stat on the timeless/reverse overall because it requires 120 dex to wear, and their end game knuckle also requires 120 dex to wear.

    Bowmasters and marksman, a similar support DPS class do not have such a restriction, and can fully utilize both stats on their timeless overalls.

    If the dex requirement was removed, buccaneers would be able to make use of all the stats just like their fellow support DPS archers. We need to ensure that the STR requirement remains, so that we can prevent corsairs from taking advantage of this change.

    Unfortunately this is where my ideas end, as I do not have very much experience with playing the buccaneer class. However, I had a discussion with some of my buccaneer friends and these are some of their ideas:

    Ideas from my buccaneer friends:

    1) make iframes on demo last as long as the movement lockout, so you can either duck immediately after the iframe ends, so you dont get RNG sed during pink bean body

    2) snatch hitbox to extend to the max range of the animation visuals

    3) increase the range of barrage so you can hit ariel / HT arms


    What do you think about the above mentioned ideas, and do you have any ideas yourself?

    Not all buccs can afford attack pots. I propose we give them a mid air forward jump so they can get up close and punch things faster

    Correct me if I'm talking nonsense, but the thief overall is also kind of only used by shadowers, right? There could be a rework that favors these jobs (pirate/shad), since warrior and archer don't need stats, and mages usually go to the lukless side

    what about the slow creep forward movement of barrage that forces you to reposition every few attacks? idk buccs have a lot of little annoying things but ive just come to accept them as part of buccs. *shrugs* when i feel like having easy life i just play my NL
