First: A continuation of the NW.110.20190519a.2 patch notes that I didn't get to last week. These went to Owlbear last week, then NeverwinterPreview on Wednesday 5/29.


Content and Environment
Cloaked Ascendancy
  • Gyrion's Tower: Players no longer take falling damage when jumping between platforms.
  • Nostura's Fey Castle: The stag is no longer stagnant; it now staggers forward and takes the player to the next stage.
Masterwork Professions
  • The first Masterwork Mailsmithing quest is now buried behind dialog options, so players are less likely to accidentally accept both it and the Masterwork Platesmithing quest at the same time. This is so that players can still accept it in case they want to, but don't spend more resources than necessary to unlock Armorsmithing recipes.
Strongholds
  • The Temple structure now properly references the Awareness stat instead of Lifesteal.
Undermountain

    Fighter

    • Vanguard

    Uhm i need to do some tests but why do i feel that onslaught (300 mag) and tremor (250) are doing less dmg than shield slam (200 mag)

    All stats capped aside from CA and only had 91k power, but i don't think doing 13k-30k dmg is enough for the 2 biggest aoe encounters i have while shield slam does 50k+ on average (this is just from watching combat logs)

    I wanna play fighter because i don't like the new cleric, but with searing light i'm doing 150k+ dmg while on the fighter i'm lucky if i hit a 300k dmg with mow down using commander's strike feat that gives 2k magnitude and mythic lantern of revelation buffs.

    Momentum and dig-in shouldn't change our FOV, give us a character outline or something

    Oh and btw shockwave sometimes only hits 1 target in the middle of a group

    Loot auto-pickup should now be working once more.

    Is this mimic preview? because....it's NOT working except on gold and lockboxes.
  • tardbathtardbath Posts: 34Member Arc User
    @terramak @nitocris83

    Any chance that you added an internal CD on Tenebous Proc chance or even if you guys think of adding one in the near Future?
    People are doing huge investements to get those enchants up and some of us are planning to get them Bound to Acount.
    With the enchant exchange gone you can sure understand why we ask this! Some classes are going to have HUGE dmg boosts from those and a nerf might be needed.

    2 things related to items mentioned but not addressed:

    Being able to donate rank 6+ is good, but what about +1 gems? It's been a while since I checked, but none of them show up at all.

    Skeletal Frost Giant Tankbuster applies the debuff even if the charge attack misses or is blocked. Perhaps blocking is intended, but if the charge is dodged and doesn't land, the debuff makes no sense.

    Hello @terramak By any chance do u plan change GF usless feats ? or just give him 3x offense companion Slots like all DPS have?
  • agilestoagilesto Posts: 457Member Arc User
    I don't see how in Earth can someone find the new Barb gameplay interesting. It's slow af, not smooth at all, especially regarding the idiotic stamina regeneration that was never fixed and never will be, the IBS that most of the time doesn't even hit the target yet goes on cooldown (bloodletter mechanism ftw), Axestorm that doesn't work half the time, the only daily Crescendo that doesn't even grant any immunity and get stopped half the time, etc.

    Bah, Barb's gameplay is a pale shadow of what it was before. I don't care not being top dps, but the gameplay is now horrible.

    Warlock

    • Soulweaver
      • Life Bind: This feat now properly applies its defense value to the character.
      • Pillar of Power: This power's cooldown time is now 15 seconds, increased from 12.
      • Pillar of Power: This power's duration is now 10 seconds, decreased from 12.
    A lot of good things in this patch, but what and why is this?

    Life Bind needs to mitigate the damage taken, not to give the user a defense value that is either inconsequential or completely worthless (Defense not capped vs. capped before the feat is applied).

    Pillar of Power having a 5% damage buff for party members is nice, and it's clear that the dev team's direction has been to drastically scale back the value and uptime on such buffs, so I'm not entirely surprised that this power was adjusted not to be perma. On the other hand, it gives extremely weak healing along with a damage bonus that is mostly wasted on a healing-focused Soulweaver, combined with a healing bonus that is working with comparatively low-magnitude healing spells as a base.

    Sacrilege - Warlock
    Contagion - Cleric
    Testament - Wizard
    Pestilence - Ranger
    Dominion - Paladin

    Soulweaver:

    We have difficulty in Dungeon Lomm, because Sw is the only healler that if he is in combat and not having any enemy he can not get more sparks, being heal less sought or not wanted to do Lomm.

    Hellbringer:

    Please increase the magnetude of the meetings and daily, SW has the smallest magnitude of DPS.

    I play cleric and i always dodge so he never hits me, but still i'm getting the debuff....I agree that this makes absolutely no since.

    please for the love of god tell me why you are nerfing barbarian even further?? we have gone from almost the top dps on mod 15, to barely a dps on mod 16! we have useless feats that dont help the skills we want to use, we have 3 DEF COMPANION SLOTS.. 3 defense for a dps class!! my barb is 24k and im being beaten in dps by every class except fighter

    The 3 defense slots don't make sense, i agree, it certainly should be 2 off, 2 def, 1 utility. But 3k less power doesn't make or break anything.

    I personally find the new barbarian playstyle a lot more entertaining than the old one and I've seen some end-game barbarians doing really good damage. Just because you don't want to adapt doesn't mean it doesn't work. The feats actually all are pretty good if you make use of them. The same can't be said of the fighter or cleric feats which all are aweful.

    For the first time in Neverwinter's history the love child isn't far ahead of other DPS classes but on par with them. I think it's great.
    The final choice of a feat for barbarian dps is absolutely horrible, and personally consider it a detriment to the class. Damage reduction or possible 3 second stun, neither is good, It seems like more of a punishment than anything else.

    Good list of problems solved on this patch.

    Boom Barb nerfed again.. cool, now they be just tanks, cause there is no reason to bring a Barb dps in Lotmm since every other dps class is just better!

    Dear devs, "The Great Weapon Fighter's playerbase" will not going to migrate to other classes just to move your economy/agenda. that trick dont will work this time.

    when will reworked feats barbarian? at the moment they are useless and bad. we want to see useful skills, not those that cannot be used and have negative effects.

    Speaking of bad, useless feats, please give us decent feats for the Justicar Paladin.

    Awesome changes!

    Perhaps an increase to the Arcanist path in terms of Storm Spell? Or make Storm Spell to activate 40% of all times? Or make a consistent Lightning Damage as a percentage on each crit?

    The thing is, Arcanist path is seriously lacking in terms of dot powers, whilst Smolder gets ahead by a lot! And can even multiproc several times per sec with Rimefire Smolder options.

    • Life Bind: This feat now properly applies its defense value to the character.
    • Pillar of Power: This power's cooldown time is now 15 seconds, increased from 12.
    • Pillar of Power: This power's duration is now 10 seconds, decreased from 12.
    • Soul Reconstruction now properly states "Magnitude" instead of "Added Effect" before its magnitude.
    (forgive my quite obvious biased here)
    I can't help but think that the priorities on the warlock class fix list is all screwed up.
    If warlock heals didn't have several major issues, I would understand the Pillar change, maybe even agree it was needed.
    But as it is, nerfing a "heal" class that is struggling to make a niche different from Paladins and Clerics is not helping those trying to get into groups. (quotes cause calling warlock Soulbinder heals is a stretch at the moment. In LoMM I'm more of a secondary heal/buff bot with Pillar and Wyvern set)

    First, if I am DPS, I want to have the same as the other DPS classes have (3 offensive slots). Second, we do not want to do a good damage, we want to have a damage in the average difference promised by the 5% Dev between classes , not the nonsense it is now, otherwise we will continue to be ignored in the channels for Dungeons. Third, it is not the first time we are broken, I remember when I started playing and the best class was GWF (one of the reasons I chose it), the default build was that of Lazalia, and if I fail the memory came the SKT module with a super nerf in the class, many of my guild even told me to give up the char and focus on another. I have seen several classes at certain times in front of the GWF, but every time I enter this forum I see the class haters asking nerf's or how you say it is balanced.

    GWF can do good damage, but we need this patch, like air, to do this.
