Mobile The Sharanga is too OP

Discussion in 'Mobile General Talk' started by Sword Ace, Nov 23, 2015.

?

Should the Sharanga be removed?

  1. Yes, it’s too OP. We have the Molten Fury as a Hell-teir bow.

  2. No. It’s about as good as the Ice Bow or Marrow except you can get it slightly earlier.

    The Sharanga, a pre-Hardmode, Hell tier, console/mobile exclusive bow. It has a base damage of 35, very fast speed, and turns all arrows into Spectral Arrows which do 16 damage and inflict Cursed Inferno. 35 + 16 = 51

    “If you’re crafting this pre-Hardmode you’re a GOD; and if you craft this in Hardmode, then you can probably fight enimies that are a reasonable distance, you can definitely—definitely fend off some of the enimies…” —ChippyGaming

    Okay, sounds just like all Hell-teir weapons: insane in pre-Hardmode, okay in Hardmode. Why is it so OP?

    Well think about it, it’s pre-Hardmode, and it will carry you all the way past Plantera. You can kill Skeletron Prime with this and a normal early Hardmode loadout. You can easily kill PLANTERA with an early-Hardmode pre-Mech loadout: https://everyplay.com/videos/22958161

    This weapon needs to be nerfed or removed. I think it should be removed; it’s cool, but there’s no reason to make the Molten Fury when you can get this.

    Not that OP. Thought the same thing until how inferior it quickly became. Even with the best Ranger Equipment, it cannot take you that far. The Megashark, and Repeaters after it dominate. Thats my opinion after playing more than 2 years.

    True, the repeaters and guns are better, but just the fact that you can kill Plantera with it is crazy. Also, I tested both of them and the Sharanga was slightly better than the Megashark. When I tried Cursed Bullets the Megashark was much better

    Just make sure you have lots of arrows since you can't have access to Ammo Saving Benefits pre hard mode.

    It's not OP in my opinion, it's just ideal if you want a challange. I did the mechs with this thing and it was doable, yes, but really hard. Hard to the point that you just want to give up. So pure for that purpose it should exist.

    It overpowers the bow of that tier by a significant margin without adding any difficult to obtain ingredients. It should be gated a little further at least. Hell the crystal storm should be gated back to it's proper place as well.

    What about the Crystal Storm?

    It drops pre hardmode.

    You can kill Plantera with a copper shortsword. Your point?

    Don't try that tactic. Sure you can but it is beyond impractical.

    They're saying it's viable to kill plantera with it, that it remains useful well into hardmode when the other items of that tier would hardly leave a dent. It is something that belongs in another tier due to the power.

    It DROPS?!

    Leave it to Codeglue to think of something like that. Chaos Elementals drop the Rainbow Rod, Crystal Storm drops from pre-Hardmode enimies.

    In my opinion, the Sharangan should stay right where it is. Because for those who knew the struggle of getting that much Hellstone, dodging lava and dying a few times in the process plus dodging those damn Hell Bats, I say it was worth the trouble. Almost like all the hard work and you sure as hell earned a weapon this powerful. For others, they saw it as a way to defeat the Wall Of Flesh when other weapons wouldnt work (in their respective knowledge, so respect how they play). Besides I'm pretty sure anyone who got a Positive Modifier on a Clockwork Assault Rifle as their first drop got really happy as the DPS and the "Consumes 1 Bullet per 3 fired" beat the Sharanga. Sure, Wooden arrows are technically free in the game, but bullets just do more damage and are faster. But if you dont mind firing Spectral Arrows all the time, be my guest. Soon I'm pretty sure youll wanna fire anything other than Spectral.

    Theory confirmed.
    It’s almost no trouble getting it if you have an Obsidian Skin Potion.

    TBH I think it should stay as is. It took forever to get, and is easily outclassed by other weapons. Besides, and i believe im speaking for a lot of people, I ditched my Sharanga as soon as i got cobalt.

    What did you replace it with, a Cobalt Raepeater :p?

    I'd be content if it was made at a hardmode anvil. It gates it farther than the ingredient.

    molten fury always sucked. and it's one of the only thing we can hold over the pc raisins, so we gotta keep it. in fact, you're probably just a pc raisin who's jealous.

    So throwing away balance is something to hold over the PC version? If the molten fury did indeed suck then the more logical option would be buffing the molten fury right?
