    I can't wait for these changes to hit console.
  • If Heels and Fured stack now, does that mean other identical bonuses do as well?
    Eg, Eyestalk Wrappers and Hag's rags, 2x Shadowstalker +5 rings etc?

    Cheers ^_^

    Please fix the Eyestalk Wraps & Hag's Rags. It was reported in the same thread.

    You guys still haven't fixed the similar problem occurring with the Eyestalk Wrappers/Hag's Rags.

    The second sister in Castle Ravenloft. Will you fix it so that it does not have the small health bar at times and will only spawn with the one that is overhead. Second sister seems to have many more hp when it spawns with small hp bar.

    If TR is allowed a ranged build like in regular D&D, they will fix eyestalk + hag's issue. Ranged classes should just be glad they fixed terrored grips and don't have to farm Tyrant anymore.

    Such ingrate ranged classes. Did you guys even know there is a ranged version of the shadowstalker ring? The +5 gives 2.5% damage, just like shadowstalker, when you are over 50' from the target (2 def slots, but nevermind that).

    I wish I could politely approach the person who thought that the Spellflinger rings would be a good idea and gently shake the living hamster out of them until they came to their senses and replaced them with something of any use. How in the world did some of these items make it into a live build?

    Terrored Grips now have the correct item level, and no longer give negative stats.





    can somebody tell me what that implies
    .
    meaning no negative recov or actually positiv recov

    If you are 50' away from the target then you're just dumb. If running with OP byebye power share. You need to be 30' or closer to the OP for 6 seconds continuously to get the power share. Ranged powers can also be used from melee range.

    After the change they have:

    +18,832 hitpoints
    +1,094 power
    +1,641 armor penetration
    +931 defense

    And the equip power for +3% more damage for encounter powers.

    I understand why you are doing this but it is unfair to those that did not get a massive amount of rp for the dagger they used.

    Not All Players are end game there are NO PLAYABLE content for mid level players- Great idea to give pack for loweril when they do mod 14 intro mission
    Thank you for removing il from pvp boon
    Mod 14 hunts are really fun to do. Thank you
    Dungeons should not be a DPS race like TONG
    Changes are getting so bad i would rather prefer no new changes (RIP ICE FISHING)

    @terramak

    Oh happy days!!!
    The on demand patching is fixed woo-hoo!!!! =)

    But, I got to ask as others, does the fix for the Heels of Fury and the Fured Kiuno of the Bear also fix the Eyestalkers Wraps and Hag's Rags?

    Just wondering why the Heels of Fury and Fured Kiuno was fixed but not the Hag Rags with the Eye Stalker Wraps? Same premise but one is melee and the other is ranged.

    The poster was being sarcastic.

    I hate myself. I literally finished grinding out a lion on one character with the intent of passing it to a different character, only to notice it was BtC after claiming it. So I just said screw it and bound it, with no intention to ride the thing...

    And one week later the patch notes that will make it BtA...

    @terramak what about Hag's Rags? Will their bonuses stack? They should as it is the same premise as Heels and Kiuno, hopefully you'll take a look at that.

    It was mentioned on Discord that this is still something they are looking into.

    Thanks for the info! Hopefully they'll tweak that bonus so we can rock both Hag's Rags and Eyestalk Wrappers.

    Shadowstalker rings? No?
