I have been discussing this with Kaddy for too long now, and she has yet to tell me how it is a fair compromise.
It would offer a surface fix and make two cards redundant for PVM and reduce a mechanic to nothing (which is apparently fine because kRO thinks so?)
As i've said in my previous post, of all the MVP shadow sets, penetration set is a little different one compared to other MVP shadow sets which is a straight forward copy cat to MVP cards. People buy SS card for PVP/WOE and not for MVPing while this set will be for MVPing.
And by all means this is no way game breaking. So what would happen to the current MVP meta if this set would be introduced?
Genes' Acid Bomb, RKs Dragon Breath will still be top tier, nothing will change
DD Crit GX damage will rise if they opted to use the set though it would be situational coz of the existence of icepick,unfroshadow set, rapid pen+phys earing combo and defense consideration of the MVP. Nevertheless, it would reduce only the killing time. They can still kill what they can kill, they still cannot kill what they cant kill previously if the issue was survivability. Another one is the Katar GXes can now compete with DD Crit/DA GXes on high def MVPs.
Other jobs (Mecha,Dancer,Bard and Warlock/Sorc for the counterpart) will also have a chance to compete with the jobs mentioned above which i think is the main reason why others want this set
Also shadow sets are meant to be extension equipment, no point in disliking it now. More shadow gear will be introduced and i doubt people will stick to using this one when there will be better options for their builds.
If you are looking for near game breaking shadow set, look at the Unfrozen Shadow Set. Penetration set is far from what you are describing as game breaking, it isnt even working on PVP/WOE scenario
