  • Been 2 weeks now. I been too depressed to even refine RAD on live. If they didn't butcher the gameplay with their dogmatic dumbed down approach, I could at least enjoy playing after being pretty much ROBBED of everything I grinded towards. But rea…
  • They could have easily solved the LS and daily spam issue. The code already exists to do it. That ultimately wasn't their real goal. They were simply too lazy to do actual class balancing and just decided to lift the rug from under the game's feet.…
  • i am going to miss Foundry, why did devs gave up on it? because they think it's something the game doesn't need? let's face facts, this game is heading in a direction away from old timers who remember these features. they would happily throw eve…

  • They did everything that they could do. And if you think making them take a financial hit to bring it back, that's just going to have the opposite effect. If you really want to try to bring it back, vote with your wallet in the other direction. G…
  • Many builds were destroyed so it wasn't just the paladins that took the blow from the nerf bat. They split all our powers, passives are mostly proc only on daily usage and the feats are...well...wanting in many respects. Tanking takes a bit more wor…
  • Eaten barely anything in the past 48 hours and things keep getting more grim. It really feels like someone close has died.

  • I don't smell a coincidence at all that they're dumbing down the game to make it easy to manage with a skeleton crew along with removing the foundry....

  • Not to mention the master boons are all just pretty much the same thing. Heal someone chance to proc useless X, or attack something for chance for useless X. Rest is just power, and w/e left that's useable. This is considerably less creative than w…

  • Don't see the game recovering with this new bland class and combat. Nothing is unique anymore. Everything feels robotic. New players? That's a @#$%in joke. They're going to take one taste, and go check out another game that offers vastly more diver…
  • A bug that they never ever fixed..? Now that doesn't sound like cryptic at all. It started happening with mod 15. Before that you always healed back up after each jump.
  • The paladin class does need a lot and I mean a lot of work. Keep in mind it is still in test stage. Hopefully they fix the way it is played. Undo the dumb split all encounters in half and limit the choices paragons have? Allow you to actually gr…
  • Leave the game as it was, nerf lifesteal to oblivion, put a cap on recharge speed/damage buffs, nerf/make other feat trees viable for classes. Nah, that was too much for them. Just butcher the entire thing and pray that the game continues to make m…
  • No, that's just a bug, THAT THEY NEVER fixed..........
  • i'd like to add that I spent ~3 years fine tuning a build and gear for my cleric, only to have you developers completely change the game in a way that makes having a unique build impossible and also makes the game not even fun anymore. going from pr…
  • High dps. If you say so. Playing with classic archery using split the sky and others. It feels real bad now. Real fun, just waiting around for StS and thorn ward to finish off things while aimed shot aims to tickle them. Old trapper style is good a…
  • I don't blame em. OP and DC are so robotic and boring on preview. Spam harmless at-wills, pop encounter, repeat. Spam encounters on OP, hold down shield or hold tab and just stand there like an idiot. Who designed this childish dumbed down system? …
  • Dude really do you want them to give you it all at once. Have you not seen a movie trailer they show a little bit 1 minute of 2 hour movie. Be thankful they let you play and test it before its out. They don't need to tell us anything and I want it…

  • Why is it a good idea to grind boons before mod16 hits? Answer: last time there was a level cap increase, some boon areas jumped in enemy level. In mod5, Sharandar, Dreadring, IWD were all level 60 (by enemy level) zones. If you could make progress …

  • Dreadtheft damage is laughable now anyway. Without any utility and locking down your mobility, should warrant far greater damage.
  • An important thing to note with all classes is balance will be adjusted up and down as we go through changes and dial in the balance. That does mean you will see dev comments about reducing or raising damages, that will simply be par for the course …
  • Take a healer companion. Oh that's nice, cut your dps by half and make the grind even slower. Pretty @#$% sad I need to rely on the companion for a chunk of damage, since the at-wills and HAMSTER aren't doing anything. Know what would be better d…
  • Very fun... NOT All healer can do is spam bane and smite while grinding...? Burning light nerfed to oblivion, at-wills tickle mobs. Then you run out of divinity to use bane and smite.... so then what do you do? How are you supposed to grind with …
  • Was originally excited by the blog for the arbiter dps path, but now the horror hit me upon trying it. Trying to do dailies with this is not going to be fun at all. No damage on chains or divine glow now... so wtf is a dps path supposed to do if i…
  • Kinda funny that I can dps with my SW using dreadtheft and arms of hadar on live just fine. Here, it's like watching mobs die of old age. Not to mention could actually kill @#$% with my at-wills also on live! Think this is the end for me if there a…
  • How is this new system better than what we currently got? At-wills are time wasters. Dailies are mindless nukes, encounters do all your pack clear damage. No fun and synergy in-between.
  • Played MoF since mod 2. Guess I'm recoloring my char blue and swapping to the lightning path now. Overall the CW has been butchered and all the joy of playing it has been stolen. Gave up damage to slow frost enchantment to support the party, now c…

  • MY opinion on mod 16 The reality - the company doesnt have enough money/resources to upgrade servers, buy a new engine and code the game better - the aging engine is not capable to support pesky little things like dailies, encounters and mount power…
  • Messing on preview just made my heart sink and I'm legit depressed now. This is going to kill the game. Classes are no longer fun to play nor unique. Everything has been dumbed down too much.
