    Everything appears to be working and is all fine, except some people are saying that they aren't getting the wing charge gems on the inheritor toon.

    Congratulations, you just changed Glacial Priest completely -.- it is like a diffenrent class now. USe of that?
  • driftingdethdriftingdeth Posts: 47 Arc User
    what happened to boogie dance ? it removed from the boutique , was my fave in game action
  • thecookienatorthecookienator Posts: 11 Arc User
    Did you seriously BUFF Warrior and Marksman? wow... just wow. - Thats how you know the devs have no idea about the game :|
  • unusualsuspect1unusualsuspect1 Posts: 693 Arc User
    Marksman buffs affect the Burst tree spec only. If you're referring to MMs in PvP, the strong ones are not going to be using the Burst tree.

    Glacial priests got a much needed major DPS buff here, but the removal of mana siphoning sucks. Glacial's were one of the few classes that could effectively counter the "broken" critdef divine priest builds going around, and now that's been nerfed.

    and what about the already broken Warriors now being buffed? D: - They already 1hit-aoe almost everyone... what the hell :\
  • mavip4nmavip4n Posts: 151 Arc User
    Hmmm ty now i know i won't pvp with my glacial priest :anguished: seriously deleting mana siphon.. like what happened to water bards....... IMO it was only way to face equally with tanky/healy toons for water bards and glacial priests and you guys deleted it. Lets see devs play game and decide all of this after learn a little about game...

  • jobabjobab Posts: 16 Arc User
    Divine Judgement still staying at 120% base attack. Arent i always thought Rebel is the way to go against tanky healers because of their buff removal and heal dispel

    also the Wrath awaken is broken on wars only on wars they neve have to pick orb.
    orb that drops from Wrath normaly fly near and around in fight but this bugg makes orb go directly into wars Wrath wich mean they dont have to pick orb or run to orb or even lose Wrath while all onther classes have to pick and run to orbs that pop up on ground around them.

    There's a few notable changes that really make or break the effectiveness of the patch.

    For starters, the changes to the glacial tree. First off: Daaaaaaaaaaammmmmmmmmmmnnnnnnnnnn. Talk about dps boost. Glacials were already a threat to begin with, since the patch i've encountered a few in pvp that literally have bursted down the tankiest of toons, even the weaker ones can keep someone perma cc'd more than before. The fact that the dyos tree got massively reworked, as well as taking the siphoning from holy prayer: enigma is a bit... uh... much in my opinion. However I can see where there's a trade off: Take away 1 utility and 1 annoying mana drain, but in return, give them a needed dps boost, and even MORE cc.

    End game wind mages got buffed, again. Lul.

    Vengeance is FINALLY not as mind numbing as before, so newer players will be able to get vengeance accessories quicker than ever before.

    Armor and Weapon smithing is a note worthy job again.

    Beehive is super useful.

    Extra mastery/resistance points per 10 level up to 80 helps massively. The rewards returning to every 10th floor of HRD makes it insanely worth doing again.

    HR6 Gear is a thing now.

    And Wardens are OP af. Nerf wagon to follow next patch~

    Inheritors give the opportunity for veteran, some newer, players to start anew. Granted I wish 12/12'ing gear was easier again. I mean, we can appreciate the gesture of allowing all these new additions too make players "ascend" to newer heights with their toons, however it's a bit hard to push forward if the one thing hindering them is the fortifications to their gear.

    I do believe there should more ways to get soul gold, tbh. At the moment, just from dailies alone, one can get about 6-7sd per day, but it's harder to manage and has far too many uses come late game when you're dealing with synergies, as well as light/dark awakening skills, which keep in mind, COST 10SD EACH POINT.

    But that's enough of my banter~

    It would be nice if there would be ANY other way to get the legendary points other than the new raid dungeon. It is nearly impossible to get a decent raid to even get through normal mode without being in a giant guild. Even as a known and very good equipped player on the most populated eu server there is nearly no way. This will leave a lot of people behind if not fixed.

    Warrior
    -The basic skill Frenzy Stance no longer lowers Evasion.
    -The talent Frenzy Outbreak no longer reduces the reduction of Evasion, while still reducing the reduction of Defense....all i wanna know why are warriors the only ones who get reduction on skills? Other class who have stance like skills get 3 4 benifits from it with a 0.1% penalty on the caster. Correcting my self why are warriors the only ones who lose stats. If u look at protecters Aura they get crazy resistence and accuracy and evasion and crit dodge at the cost of 0.5% mana oh but wait they can get a boost of 20% mana while they have an arua active so that 0.5% mana drain every 5 second is there for what? Shouldnt it be the other way around lose 10 or 20%mana every 3seconds fair? I mean mages must hate knowing 2skills can eat 75% of mana for a shield and a bit of mastery n resis and mana is every thing to a mage, Hate how all say warriors have most damage. Well shoot besides dealing damage what u want them to do look pretty and sip on ice tea? We are warriors we supose to hit the hardest, every class has a job to do priest heal protecters protect assassins be sneaky and one shot all with easy crit chance and crit damage boosts, bards play nice music to speed us up or heal us and they do it all while in the safty of that monster bubble, mages kill every annoying pasks who are after the tank, mm,s suppose to watch our backs from a distence and head shot all, vamps suppose to drain blood, was a perfect set up for a great game if they could of balance it way better but they had to go and bring in reapers with that (get over here) pull then tormanters with that 50meter range not even funny, And now wardens with every hit stealing your mastery and resistens n not just nibbling on it but taking a big oh chunk out of it. My ward has lvl0resistence (25 basic resistence) but as a moon eater 2 or 3 hits and i get around 200resistence and mastery while leaving the poor soul bone dry of mast n resis.and is it normal for to open close to 3k relic spirit mark (not all at once since they have come out) and not get 1 mark with a crit chance, i mean i know my luck is very bad in games but come on. I could drown fw in crit dodge or my most commen 1 elemental def or attack lol. Sorry for long post

It is nearly impossible to get a decent raid to even get through normal mode without being in a giant guild. Even as a known and very good equipped player on the most populated eu server there is nearly no way. This will leave a lot of people behind if not fixed.

    We just world-chatted for an open inter-guild team with the following requirements:

    DPS - 130K+ HP and have beaten at least HRD20 (Need at least 12 of such)
    Heals - 130K+ HP and with 4K+ HE (Need at least 3, maybe 4)
    Tanks - Any aggro/taunt based tank with 170K+ HP (Need at least 1, 2 if you don't a strong dps aggro puller)

    We asked for that and got 1st in server title for NM.
    Raising DPS requirement to passing (not at but beating it) HRD40, and +10K HP for all, also got us 1st in server for HM

    Note that these specs are probably more than what is needed, but hey, they worked for us. We had about 6 different guilds in our team.
