Well guys sorry on behalf of all Succesion Novas who have been requesting PVE buffs without realising that the class was on par with Succesion Woosa and Awakening Witch... according to the recent PVE buffs, who would have tought that the class only issue in PVE was a skill description of ONE skill about HP revovery to be more clear.

Perhaps playing her for since her release was not enough for me to understand how to PVE with her, goodness me Im dumb.

I feel for you.  As soon as I saw what was up, I scanned through the list for Nova, and saw that, once again, she was left behind.

That would be exactly my question...

I really like the Graphics of the Nova, bad asss shield, minions fighting with you, Balrog, so I didn't care that much about how it sits in PVE ladder but Nova Succession is the only class that is not buffed it seems. Was it that good in PVE?

They even buffed Awakening Nova, but I could sware that I already read some posts mentioning that Awk Nova was a top dog in high end PVE before the buffs.

So what am I missing?

Succ nova was considered a "good" PvE class because she pulled very high trash at the at the time best PvE spot (Dekhia Thornwood).
However this was not because of her high damage or weird bugs but because she is one of the classes with the most protected damage (nearly every skill is SA) and since Dekhia Thornwood at that point had 3 different CCs a lot of people weren't able to push high trash because you can only ever get 2 resistances to 100%. 
However with the CC changes to the Dekhia spots and the damage buffs to other classes Succ nova is now again in the spot of one of the worst PvE classes because of her bad damage and mobility. 
Her bad mobility makes pack to pack movement harder and of course back attacks, her damage numbers were never really high especially her long animations and the fact that Pet dmg which is around 30-40% of her PvE damage does not scale with extra special attack buffs (crit/back attack extra damage (special modifers are applied just not the % increase from extra buffs like corrupted crystals and cups)).
On top of that her Cooldowns are quite "long" considering the amount of good skills making you run out of skills with high attackspeed, even worse if you actually have a lot trough Aborbs or Shai buffs you lose out on a lot of damage since there can only be 1 Axian at the same time and you will use two axian skills so close to each other they cancel the attack motion of him :)
So yeah, please buff Succ Nova PvE PA! She really needs some love.

succ nova deserves pve buffs since she's been in the top 3 worst grinders in the game since her release

and she's always been below average at dekia thornwood, in fact she is #30 according to garmoth numbers

     I haven't kept up with Suc nova in a long time.

   Did they ever unscrew her kit to be able to even buff it appropriately?

Mechanically(please correct me by all means, i took several breaks here and there when it came to patch notes.)  In the original release all her pet damge was 100% accuracy, half of the damage would always land even on absurd evasion targets. (This used to be Striker awk till  they manage to reduce the clones from 100 to 50 and i think..25% now?) meanwhile if you stacked AP like a madman only half of your damage was shreading DR.

   It tallied up to a balance dev sweating how broken a few % of damage increase would domino into with her hybrid skills, originally.

If this is still the same song, they need to give her pets a rework so she can be buffed without turning her into a deathray.

Her pets/summons now have 0% accuracy. And do not benefit from Special Attack Damage modifiers like Back Attack, Down Attack, or Crit Damage. 

She is blind as a bat, has no accuracy buffs, no evasion shred, a shitty E buff, and awful CDs on our usable and reasonably damaging skills. 

The only reasonable improvement weve gotten is we no longer kill ourselves casting skills.
