The class is buffed overall. Only a few key crutches were nerfed.
No some of these are very stinky poopy nerfs.
The Blade Staff in particular is now pathetically weak to the point of not being worth it. Like holy crap a small change that completely butchered it in this update. Ya made it feel like a Pre Hardmode weapon. - This seriously needs to be looked into.
Also GG making the Terraprisma way harder to obtain.. i don't get it was it supposed to be a Post ML weapon or something? Not everyone has l33t g4m3r reaction times to not get hit once under a downpour of projectiles. Dodge gave people like me a somewhat fair chance against Day Empress in Summoner playthroughs - Yet it was still pretty situational not a surefire way to avoid her attacks to be needing such drastic nerf.
And the Sanguine Staff nerf .. *sigh*
So yea Summoners got quite the shaft in this update.
Can't have anything nice for Summoners i guess..
