I have not much tolerance for items that I strongly dislike, I simply won’t use them (eg. alien weapons because the projectiles cause me pain to see, Fallen Wand/Cutlass owing to range, many/most ST weapons, lots more examples I won’t bore you with.
So of the things that I do use:
QoT’s loooong cooldown, especially when you miss, makes it frustrating to use.
All Katanas are just too long range, how they originally were designed made ninja more fun since it forced going glass cannon so much more than now, and without that feel it lost a deal of its uniqueness compared to daggers. Bring back 4.2 as the base range!
Ray Katana in particular is so dumb unnecessary long range. 6.12 tiles wtf, that’s a wand. Why should my fat samurai be able to hit O2 from safety with over 900HP, 55DEF and 6+ range. Although I do it, ofc.
Decades - symbolises many things that are wrong with the game (duping, HP bloat) but of course it’s OP so I feel compelled to use it if I’m going somewhere threatening.
Legacy Twilight - I’ve now constant envy of the new&better non-legacy version; has soured using this.
