It's weird that xeno staff was nerfed. I agree that the staff is strong, but it is too difficult to get. You need to kill Martian invasion 2-3 times to get the staff, which makes many ignores it. Kill the lunatic cultist and get the stardust dragon is easier, and the weapon is better.With 18.104.22.168's release just a few minutes ago, I feel that the balance iteration period of this update is over. As always, perfection is an impossible goal, but there is always room to continue striving for better. However, it will not be in the form of further 1.4.4 hotfixes.
I'll be leaving the thread open for a couple more days just to let any final thoughts settle, and then will close the thread again (I do not know if it will be re-opened for 1.4.5).
In my opinion,May1be the xeno staff should be nerfed, but as a compensation, it's drop rate should be increased. I have 2 ideas.
1. Let the martian saucer drop 2 different items like the moonlord.
2.Make the car key a independent drops, and let xenopooper drop from the normal enemy like the charged blaster cannon. this will make the weapon drop rate from 16.67% to 25%, and It's drops correspond to 4 class.
