  • With scaling, people are extremely frustrated because it is too heavy handed. This seems to be reaching emergency levels of frustration, hence the stream and this thread. I don't think tweaking things as they are is a safe approach anymore. In an ef…
  • I do give Mimic King some kudos for breaking the number one rule of business: never publicly take responsibility for anything, ever. Posts like this and the upcoming stream (assuming it's not all just a big dog-and-pony show) can do a lot to buy goo…
  • Mod-not-mod note: To the folks complaining about your posts being deleted, they (probably) weren't. You edited them shortly after posting and they got flagged as spam by the forum software and zapped. The mods will come along eventually and restore …
  • Clearing the cache resets it because they store the info in a cookie, and if it doesn't see that cookie, it thinks it's a new browser/device and tries to re-verify. Its stupid, but it is what it is. I use Firefox too and the same thing happens to me…
  • Dungeon achievements and "Icespire Mountaineer" are different things. That one isn't dungeon related, it's about exploring every inch of Icespire Peak. It was supposedly removed from everyone's achievement list, but it's still on mine too. It doesn'…
  • I'm not sure some folks grasp the full concept of "Fireball" and why some of us like the idea so much. It's not supposed to be a Firebolt or a Firepuff. It's not Chill Strike but with fire and no, the Warlock doesn't already have it. It's a gigantic…

  • Quick question. (My very old PC has had a hissy fit. Something about getting too hot... might be best if I pay attention this time...) Could someone do me a huge favour and have a look on preview and let me know what the new Mount Bonuses are on t…
  • Something that is sorely lacking for Arcanist is a mechanic for lightning. Cold has Chill Stacks, Fire has Smoulder, Arcane has Arcane stacks, but what defines Lightning? This bothers me as well. I always thought Storm Spell should have been chang…
  • I'm just curious if the streak breaker logic was already in the works, or done in response to this thread.... I'm sure it was already in the works, probably for months. This isn't remotely the first time this has been brought up, people have been …
  • What about terror? It used to be a decent buff/debuff. I didn't see it on your list Looking at it on preview: "Terror Enchantment, Rank 12: Your At-Will, Encounter, and Daily powers deal 4% bonus damage as necrotic damage. Whenever activating yo…
  • Hey guys I'm trying to find info on mounts that have recovery or lifesteal? What happens to mounts like the Tensor Disc and Bat Swarm? https://two30.github.io/neverwinter-insignia/ Not insignia bonuses. I'm talking about the +4000 recovery on…
  • Bloodtheft looks like a total trap. 80% of the time it would proc off of an At-Will for a pitiful amount of HP. Now if it triggered only off of Encounters and Dailies, then we'd be talking.
  • The more specific the feedback we receive, the more likely we can action on it. Feedback that is along the lines of: "I don't like the powers split between the paragon paths" tells us you don't like it, but doesn't give specifics on which powers y…
  • Some general class feedback from me is that I feel the Paragon Paths have been given way, WAY too large of a footprint! It feels kinda pointless to even say it because I know that development is far beyond the point of no return on this, but it's cr…
  • Why are creature type specific boons considered so great? I don't get it either. None of them will ever be found on any of my characters.

  • The Lifedrinker seems like a serviceable, if lean, LS source, at the expense of DPS. The Bloodtheft seemed decent at first glance until I realized that 80% of the time it would trigger off of an At-Will that does like 17 points of damage. That make…
  • Really? This is a complaint? I'd pay to STOP getting ID scrolls. I stopped collecting the dungeon keys a long time ago because the scrolls were so annoying. Getting rid of identification is a 100% upgrade to everyone, VIP and non-VIP alike. Good ri…
  • When the mathematicians show up, they always assume that this game implements randomness 100% properly. The effects of probability, statistics, and observation bias talked about are totally and completely true... IN THEORY. No one is arguing the law…
  • No Fireball or Lightning Bolt?! What have you been spending all this time on anyway? I am disappoint. :joking/notjoking: Wow, I knew the class changes would be pretty steep, but I didn't expect Wizards (and everyone else) to basically be drawn and …
  • My hope would be 2x (100% / chance). That would put 10% at 20, 5% at 40, 3% at 67, and 1% at 200. This would stop baiting people with bad luck into using Coals on 3%+ chances, but would still leave Coals clearly best for 1%.

  • Speaking for myself I don't really see how changing the "Guardian Fighter" to a "Fighter" - or a "Great Weapons Fighter" to a "Barbarian" constitutes "New Classes" instead of modifications to current classes, particularly since all the supposed new …
  • I think the counter argument is boiling down to a few meaningful options are better than tons of meaningless options. Obviously that's assuming the new options will be meaningful. We'll have to wait and see. As an added bonus, fewer feats would be …
  • I've always liked Barbarians and felt it was a shame we couldn't have them because GWFs were Barbarians wearing Fighter clothing. I mean, Determination? That is very obviously Rage. I know it may be a bit too much too soon to do it all right now, b…
  • My advice to the devs: If you MUST rip everything apart once again and re-work it all to 'balance' this game, do it ONE more time and then STOP doing it. After this has happened, when you add something new to the game make it genuinely new and do no…
  • I'd love to have some player housing. I dunno if a marriage system would add much, but I'd probably create a second account and marry myself. I've always wanted to marry myself.
  • To expand on what @kvet was saying, 3E and 4E feats were boatloads of little this'n'that dials, mods, and circumstantial bonuses. It was a rats nest. Most of them were useless, some of them comically so, while others were all but mandatory. It wasn'…
  • They stated that there would still be a couple sources of lifesteal. Lifedrinker and Bloodtheft enchants seem like the perfect candidates for that. So instead of them being gutted or changed, you might see them become the new hotness for soloing. T…
  • They're probably being bought up by NDA-signed testers that are positioning themselves to make bank on these and other changes. Either that, or less scrupulous versions of me that are making an educated guess.
  • I find the breadth and depth of the changes a very exciting prospect. For me, this game has been in a coffin for the last 6 months or so, slowly being lowered into the cold dark earth. At this point, an overhaul on this scale seems like the only thi…
