It's called Automaton Queen, and yet it has a man's body?

I'm worried larry. I don't think they've fixed mch now that I see the actual mechanics and tool tips. It actually seems like a far worse situation with the new overheat. The main pain point for high ping mch is that weaving in a 1.5s gcd was just impossible. My own personal opinions about just spamming heat blast aside the fact that it refreshes so much of gauss round and ricochet means at minimum you'll have to weave one of each. This being the burst window you'll probably weave constantly through the window for optimization. This is a far worse situation for high ping mch players and is gonna be uncomfortable even at low ping. Rapid fire was a skill that felt awful in practice and with the overheat there's far more of it than ever before and I'm worried that these concerns won't come out til we're well into shb and we'll have the same mch situation that has always been around

Holy crap this looks so damn awesome I can't wait to finally get my machinist out of hw with the changes I see.

But who is it that beams down the Automaton Queen for you? Who is this mysterious ally the WoL calls up to drop down a giant robot whether you're on the Source or the First?

Why am I thinking so hard about this?

Wildfire seems so boring now.

BikiButt · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

Standby for Titanfall.

Ronald Verdegaal · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

No more turrets?

Lilac Milton · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

HOLY SHIT, THIS IS AMAZING. I tried Machinist at one point ages ago and it was so boring i couldn't stand it. It might become one of my favorites this Expansion.

Changes are perfect for my Lala alt Eclipticon as he's a proper machinist who made bots

ArtficialFlvrz · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

The moves that the Queen does, except for Pile Bunker, all count as Weaponskills and they technically still come from you, so they all add 150 to it's potency if shes up during a wildfire.

Helljump's Video Hole · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

CamTheKitty · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

Jake G · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

Helmwall · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

King-gorz · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

Carnyzzle · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

Oh thank God that mch isn't rng hell

Sorry N Advance · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

I remember when machinist was first announced I was so happy I was so sure it was going to be my new main and then I got to try it and I was so disappointed I never touched it again but now I cannot wait to give it another try this looks so good

CptZSLight · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

"wildfire only works off weaponskills now" "they still managed to keep its identity" I don't think you understand what the machinist life is all about larry.

İpek Özbay · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

Imagine that wildfire weaponskills would work with your teammates. Composition would be like; war, drk, pld (healer), gun (healer), mnk/sam, nin , drg, and mch :>

Neptune1009 · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

Why would they say it lasts “20” seconds when it doesn’t because of the summon animation? 🙁 Bahamut and Phoenix work as soon as they show up

jonathan V · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

HOLY FUCK i loved machinist before im loving it even more now

BM03 · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

They haven't said anything good about crafters but now I'm excited that I know CUL turns into MCH and Air Anchor increases the Batter Gauge. ( 1:43 )
I don't know the baking rotation well yet but I try.

ShiNy ArMor · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

wait Robot (Queen)? i know robots don't have gender but usually it's ships cars and airplanes that usually can refer to as she as for robots and giant robots like Gundam in general then it has always been referred to as He, eh queen or not i'll still nickname my robot Astro boy or megaman lol

Slapin · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

One thing I don't like is how when you summon the bot it takes about 5 seconds for it to activate. I hope they can speed it up a little.

NetLiberate · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm

Machinist being Machinist now

Anonymous Xaela · May 30, 2019 at 4:27 pm
