Haven't played for a year but I love it
If you read this signature, then that meant that I had control of what you read for 5 SECONDS!!

They haven't revealed the specifics yet, but Flicker Strike's definitely getting buffed in this upcoming patch which has a big focus on melee revamp.

It will for sure be a popular build in Legion League imo, cause I see it being discussed basically every day ever since the Lead Developer said the new League would be Flicker-friendly (because the previous couple Leagues weren't).

Depends on what you want a buff for. In terms of power, it definitely doesn't need it. I played Flicker in Delve with just Oro's and everything else as trash gear, and it was nuts. If you mean QoL stuff, then melee in general is getting that. Flicker in particular will get two big things I can think of off the top of my head.

1. Single target skills will be able to hit multiple targets. I used Slayer partially for the free Melee Splash, but that wouldn't be needed anymore.

2. Animation cancelling, aka Multistrike cancelling. Flicker needs Multistrike for Frenzy upkeep, and now you won't be locked into the full 3 attack animation.

@ #2, holy s*** I didn't realize realize that about Flicker. That sounds like a huge QoL buff, considering you'll now be able to dodge stuff like Bearers/Volatile without getting locked in to the full 3 strikes.

Might have to give it a try on a second build of the League. Last time I played it was probably 4 years ago and I got motion sickness from it.
