AQ Map 5 Ultron Drones too hard

I've seen a lot of backlash about Map 5 Hyperion and nodes but not much about the increased difficulty of the Ultron Drones. They hit much harder than the Sentineloids. The block/chip damage is pretty potent. When I took an unblocked sp2 against a Mutant Drone, took over half my health. I think they should be toned down or the rewards increased a lot.

Ultrons are much harder than Sentineloids. Where are the increased rewards?

    They're a lot less passive than the sentinels, I've been loving the change. The specials are also much easier to dodge. Although I really need to read into the Science drone's abilities and learn why I keep getting evade-punched.

    I find them less passive than the Sentinels, the Sentinels were just too passive

    I find both of them to be equally passive, the main problem I have is that sentinels sp are easier to dodge(mainly cuz I suck at dodging magnetos special 2) and that some ultrons inflict poison on you which is annoying. That being said I am not advocating for a change but it is a little harder

    I wouldn't have said "quit whining" but I do find them easier than the Sentinels. I use Vision against them to prevent them from using specials.

    I like them, hitting them gives you non damage dealing debuffs that heal you with willpower

    They are more punishing if you make a mistake or you get lag at the wrong time or the game doesn't register your inputs. Getting hit by Sentineloids didn't take so much of your health in one shot.

    Given a certain significant segment of this forum, I'm sure they will write "quit whining" in the comments so I added it for them. :)

    I wouldn’t have said “quit whining” either but these drones are far and away light years better than Sentinels. The AI is more accommodating and aggressive, they’re easier/quicker to kill, and I don’t have to do the stupid LMLM or MLM combos. The latter is the most annoying thing about Sentinel.

    Difficulty wise I believe that they are the same as sentinels, but I actually prefer these more than sentinels, there's more opportunities to heal up when fighting them if you have willpower and the special attacks overall are easier to evade then sentinels. I will agree that the block damage off specials is ridiculous, but apart from that there's no need for them to be toned down.

    I like em. They're alot easier than the sentinels. Those magneto drones always manage to clip me though. Have a image from trucos about them aswell, helps with identification and what to expect

    I used parry + heavy against the Sentinels and it wasn't as much chip/block damage as with the Ultrons. Fought mostly the Mutant and Mystics drones and they seem to gain power quickly, too.

    With sentinels my Rogue restore life eventually lost in path 4 of 1st section in map 5.
    With this one's, mainly the one that have electro specials, I can't restore Rogue's life again!

    Thanks, I've seen this & it's helpful but kind of annoying to have to keep looking back at this to see which specials are coming. Electro/Mutant is giving me fits.

    The only issue i have with them is the science ones have that evade chance randomly mid combo and also has visions specials.. I feel that is a bit much.. If that were removed i wouldnt mind the block damage.. That being said at the same time i did not like the way we had to fight sentineloids so if you are on the tech path that has the science ones i would agree that they are harder than sentineloids.. If not they are really arent that bad imo.. Its just annoying that they random evade then hit you with a sp1 or sp2 and the sp1 alone takes almost half the health on my 4 star r5s i feel thats a bit much but i dont see it changing and at least i dont have to do stupid combos to fight them
