For the record, Tusk is in a good position right now and doesn’t really need any changes. However, ever since I saw the glowing on his sword I have wanted IG to make some sort of unique mechanic revolving around it. This is a thread to discuss ideas for what this mechanic could have been. Simply post your mechanic and it’s rational.
OVERHEAT: as Tusks sword glows, it fills a new UI gauge next to the shadow meter. When the meter is full, Tusk loses some damage on his sword attacks (including linkers and enders) and never has a deflect window. Tusk never overheats during instinct mode or shadow moves.
Rational: Tusk has little reason not to use his sword normals, this is meant to discourage recklessness and encourage the methodical bully playstyle Tusk is built around. It essentially acts as the opposite of Hisakos wrath meter.
