Rhino Nerf
Why!?!

This totally needed to happen; however, I find that his radial stomps are junk anyway, so maybe they should have improved the damage or radius to compensate for Rhino not being completely broken anymore. Atleast ironskin still makes you immune to stunlock, the only ability that does this I assume.

I think I'd have preferred a duration nerf or something. I think knocking off 33% of the duration (so it's 10 seconds at max rank) would've been better.

nah there still would be ways to me in godmode forever
iron skin was broken this didnt surprise me at all
rhino will still be a good frame with this nerf so let ppl take time to get used to it is all

Only invulnerability now belongs to Trinity. One last frame to deal with. XD Anyone figure out as to how the ability scales now? Does the duration improve or the reduction or both on leveling? Also, anyone test if iron skin can still save you from jackal and phorid's grenades and green missiles respectively?

they said when it is maxed it redueces 80% of all incoming DMG
i dont think they changed the timing of it but i have not looked at my rhino yet

trinitys invis is much harder to keep up less you are on a boss
then still vamp>link>shoot>reload>vamp>link...... seems to be what she is designed for
+ heal all super that is

Well, the big thing is that now that you actually take damage while ironskinned, you don't regen shields while the ability is up. That was the main thing that made rhino broken. You could take full shield damage (700+) and then ironskin yourself while you regen shields, then take damage on your shields and ironskin again etc. That combo got the nerf bat but damn was that fun to run into a room of certain death just to ironskin your way into a solo victory.

ugh... this is going to completely throw off my play style... (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

I never used Rhino Skin, so this doesn't bother me any, but leave stomp alone or buff it plz lol. I find stomp to be much more useful than the skin, bu maybe that's just me. If I get crowded, I stomp and then spray everything floating with my gorgon. I can solo any pluto lvl and I never touch Rhino Skin.

Blame it on the pvp ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s,it has been nerfed for the coming 1vs1 roo in the Dojo most likely,because Rhino was as a matter of fact immortal with that

Agree, actually I don't want PvP and don't understand why people are asking for this so bad, I mean, PvP seems pointless when each warframe got their own characteristics!

OP skills should be nerfed , I do not understand why everyone complain about rhino nerf

well considering the rest of Rhino's abilites are boring (imo), I'm begining to question the point of the frame, it now seemed completly outclassed by frost.

rhino is boring now, he is to slow to fight with a group and as tank he cannot tank now, his cc is nice but gettign a warframe for one skill? I saved alot lifes with iron skin and tanking a group of toxic ancients, i dont know if you did it but fighting a lvl 80 toxic isnt easy.

Yup, iron skin was the only reaason rhino was worth a damn IMO, the only other ability of his that I used was rhino charge for mid air flight extension. The other abilities were huge energy dumps for little to no damage a some decent crowd control.

Iron skin isn't completely worthless, but not being immune to stun/stagger was the big nerf in this situation. Taking damage is fine but not being immune to stun/stagger hurts his value. You can't revive a teamate with a bunch of bad guys around you anymore. If you get stunned with iron skin up it will be gone by the time you are even able to get up and find cover...

I didn't start this thread as a complaint, it was to discuss the outcome we will see from the iron skin nerf.

This nerf needed to happen but I think that since they only focused on nerfing iron skin instead of actually balancing the playstyle of the Rhino frame as a whole, we are seeing the consequences. Does Rhino really need 2 radial stuns? I don't think so. He could use something else like a supporting ability, maybe an aoe armor buff for allies?

It should. IF you balancing it against another WF, but against endless hoards of enemes (you know, this game more PvE, that PvP), it's just awesome, and adds up to the feel of being badass space super killer.
