Lunar Lancer: Feedback/Personal Opinion (Possible Bug)
I've been playing around with the Lunar Lancer and I must say, the class is a lot of fun to play and looks to be a great addition to the character roster. The grapple mechanic has been tremendous fun to play around with and find uses for, albeit not so much combat orientated but definitely a fun ability nonetheless. I always think what new abilities can be introduced that aren't already similar to the rest but this was definitely a breath of fresh air. However, I'm posting this to the forums more so to address my minor issues with the class in the hopes of the Devs seeing it.
Firstly, after playing with the class since it's launch, I feel that the M2 and 1 abilities should be switched around. Now before you say, I know I can change this in the options, (which after trying to get used to the original skill layout, I ended up doing so and haven't looked back) I still see a trend in similar classes. Take for example: Knight/Candy Barbarian. Both classes have their movement/gap closer ability on 1 and the AoE damage/main damage ability on their M2. Personally, I find it easier to be pressing M2 whilst fighting and focusing on building up my Lunacy mixing in with M1 attacks. The other drawback to my temporary fix is that when I switch to other classes for challenges or just general playing, most of the time I forget i've made the switch and after messing up in the first fight I get in, I have to go through the options which slows gameplay down a little on the initial class switch.
Secondly, now I'm not sure if this was intended or possibly a bug, but when strafing left/right and trying to M1 attack enemies, the Spear will attack in the direction you're facing as opposed to the direction of your cursor. Now, I understand with sword classes, the M1 is more of a sweeping action but still, I feel the Lancer should be able to strafe and still attack an enemy in front of him as opposed to piercing the air to the left/right of the target. Again, this may be intended as the weapon is a pointed Spear but that limits the movement capability during combat to the point where you can only move forward/backwards to evade and still continue to attack with M1.
Finally, a few minor things that aren't really a problem but just personal preference. I would like the Lancer to wield his Spear with two hands. The example I can think of off the top of my head would be the character Xin Zhao from League of Legends. He runs with the spear two handed and attacks in a straight line, thrusting with the spear, not poking as our Lancer does. He also has a crescent sweep attack, similar to the 1 ability of the Lancer and again, two handed. At the minute, the way the Lancer holds his spear during the 1 ability, it's hard to visualize the power behind the attack due to the one handed grip, it would look much more powerful if he were to swing with both hands and put his body into it. The next minor point would be that of Face styles. Personally, I prefer to have face/hat hidden but when trying some on to see what it looked like, the Lancer's ears/snout protrude. This might bother some people but due to the shape of the Lancer's head, I can see why it appears as it does though.
In summary, the class is a really fun addition and I'm enjoying it thoroughly. The 'problems' i've stated are personal opinion based on my own experience/preferences and to be quite honest, they're not that huge of a problem. Thanks for taking the time to read and if you have anything to add, please leave a reply with your opinions.
Would like M2 and 1 abilities switched. Would like Lancer to hold Spear in two hands. Minor annoyance at strafing/attacking target in front of you and model poking through face styles.
Which'd be faster & more efficient for quickly farming Trove dungeons
If the Reverent's a better class, than would the spear atleast be salvageable for making the best U6 farming gear? That's the only piece I've gotten to radiant so far; although I fear that En Regen isn't as good as CD/MH for the rev. Keep in mind I like to keep MF on my items when possible, max MF is a must for farming.
Can we get a chain version of "Falling Blocks" ?
A bridge made out of them . As you step on one , the bridge will start to collapse and players will have to run in order not to fall into the chasm with lava . (others will have to glide over or build one later to cross)

Number of Ideas for Trove
Still gives the 10% bonus and caps at 2 for each stat. It is up to the Devs on if this can grant rings/banners an extra stat. Sounds like it might be OP, but Trove flux sinks always help the economy.
The Lunar Lancer: Trove's most Conservative Class
Trove released the Lunar Lancer with so little customization and so inconsistent a demeanor that it's often very aggravating and nonsensical.
