    bug 1: hunter ranger's carefull attack does not deal damage consistently (seems like it can proc once every 15 - 20 sec if any.... instead of once with 1 sec cooldown)
    bug 2: my tr is often unable to restealth if it does not use a power before.
    bug 3: level up reward can be claimed 50 and more times in a row

    Oppressor Capstone:
    The capstone for shatter strike states that your control powers proc a hit for 33% of weapon damage against control immune targets. In reality, every power procs the hit for 33% of weapon damage, on every tick.

    "Smolder and Rimefire Smolder should now properly be affected by Chilling Presence."
    it does not work.

    where? I cant find the relic vendor in those areas

    I found the vendor for the Maze Engine. You have to go to the Gauntlgrym Supplier Dwarf in Mantol-Derith. I have yet to find the one for the Storm King's Thunder.

    Fixes does not necessarily mean balancing. And as some people have pointed out, some of those fixes aren't actually fixed yet.

    Terrific list! Please keep it up!

    It's extremely gratifying to see that the Foundry is finally getting some love. Can I request some extra assets? There are no Nasher assets available, which makes creating Blacklake District quests kind of difficult. Also, there are no Underdark assets if I recall. Another asset that's missing is the upright exhaust pipe used in stills (e.g. the ones the lizardfolk use to purify water and the redcaps use to ferment sap). I know, it's a nitpick :wink:

    I also have a general Foundry question. When we create costumes, there are always four color swatches shown, but the fourth one never seems to do anything. What does it do?

    #1: @terramak I don't see the fix for GF and OP shielding - the animation fix and delay reduction promised in the October Bugfix Thread. Did those not make it to Mod13, or did you miss them when compiling the patch notes?

    #2: As @asterdahl said here back in July, all new rings are supposed to have two slots. However, the 12B rings in the Mysterious Merchant (eg "Ring Of The Wily") have only one slot.

    Can we get those fixed?

      • Lesser Curse now keeps its tick timer when replaced. (Example: If it dealt damage 1.0 seconds ago, and a warlock re-applies it, it will deal damage 0.5 seconds from now instead of 1.5 seconds from now.)

    • Scourge Warlock - Temptation Feat Update

      • Ghastly Commander: Lifesteal Chance has been increased to 1/2/3/4/5% (up from 0.4/0.8/1.2/1.6/2.0%).
    • Trickster Rogue
      • Duelist's Flurry can now trigger weapon enhancements with each hit against the target.
      • Gloaming Cut: This power's tooltip has been updated to clarify its functionality. Functionality has not changed.
      • Impact Shot now deals approximately 20% more damage.
      • Impact Shot now calculates based on the correct amount of charges left; it had previously thought the player had fewer charges than they actually did.
      • Oppressive Damage: An issue has been fixed where the rank-up values were providing much more damage than intended. To compensate for this change, the base damage has been increased, and this power now scales with player stats.

      • Shadowy Opportunity now deals 10/20/30/40/50% weapon damage, down from 20/40/60/80/100%, but now scales with player stats.
      • Sly Flourish now increases enemy damage taken by 10%, rather than reducing enemy armor.
      • Smoke Bomb now procs weapon enchantments on the first hit.
      • Smoke Bomb now deals an extra tick of damage. Damage for each tick has been reduced to compensate for the extra tick.

      • Tenacious Concealment: This power no longer grants Stealth Regeneration while taking damage.
      • Tenacious Concealment: Rank 4 of this power should now properly function.

    • Sprites now follow the player earlier when the player moves out of range.

      • These had been inadvertently lowered in the item level rescaling of Module 11b: Shroud of Souls.
      • The tooltips have been updated to make it clear the damage scales based on your level, not the companion's.
    • Zhentarim Warlock: Hellfire Eruption now correctly deals AoE damage.

    • Transcendent Lightning Enchantment: The Lightning Burst effect can now crit.
    Mounts
    • More mount flourish animations can now be interrupted by movement.
    General
    • Dragonborn Fury: This passive racial power now has a smaller refresh time, so that when new gear is equipped, the power will update sooner with the updated stats applied.
    • Moon Elf, Half Elf, and Half Orc racial powers now have unique icons.

    Non-stacking WoL. Again, not surprising, I had also expected this, and it affects ACs slightly more than DOS, as ACs typically have higher Power.
    I tend to agree with you. If I understand that correctly, it means that no DO is going to include WoL in a build because usually an AC has a higher power stat.
    Indirectly they nerfed as well:
    - the bonding runestones utility
    - the weapon enchantments scaling with power
    - the SW new buffs scaling with power.

    Anyhow i believe that the 2 DCs "meta" is not completely dead despite the nerf (to be tested against other options): (HG+FF) + (AA+BtS) are still there.
    On the other hand, I hope my SW to be useful again.

    Oppressor Capstone:
    The capstone for shatter strike states that your control powers proc a hit for 33% of weapon damage against control immune targets. In reality, every power procs the hit for 33% of weapon damage, on every tick.

    Hopping this is working as intended, it would make Opressor tree viable. Just fix the text.

    Rightous AC-DC spends powerebuffs +CG+ByS+FF/BtS+AP gain+encounter reset+heal+mitigationtool. DO spends TI instead of powerbuffs but HG is a great buff too.
    The class is set in stone in every meta with any gear at any time 100%.
    At moderat powerstats that AC will use HG all time, since it's far more consistent DPS/mitigation than AA, hard to overcome a 1.35 multiplier by a 30% powerbuff.
    At specific bossencounter he will rely on AA over HG, right.
    With endgear you might go towards double daily, at least a viable option as AC/DC, you might not get there, even being BIS.

    The DO-DC will be viable at less gear but miss powerbuffs, a pretty awesome buffer anyway, zero gear needed.
    At higher gear that DO-DC will be the better pick as long as BoB-powerbuff will not outnumber TI (a flat 20% buff.) in terms of dps, and as long as AA is not needed for any mitigation/CC immunity effects.
    In the end one player runs several loadouts, in need of AA he can switch.
    You might run your DO/crit setup same as your powerbuffer/recovery setup according to the groups and the bossencounter in the same dungeon.
    The only difference is that 2DC might not be set in stone in one group all time. I really hope we get to that point, same as striker classes get back into content, but think we are miles away from that point though.
    Anyway I thank devs for making alternatives at least viable.

    • Jagged Blades: This feat now consistently procs on all powers that target foes.
    It procs consistently, but not as the way the tooltips describes it.


    Bug: Jagged Blades isn't affecting all targets Critically hit

    Jagged Blades' tooltip says "When you Critically Strike a foe, they begin bleeding". This imples that as long as you score a Crit on an enemy or any number of enemies, you place Jagged Blades.

    This is false, if you use a power which targets multiple enemies, and your attack Crits on all enemies, only one target recieves Jagged Blades.



    In this ACT screen, you can see I scored a Crit on the pinata using Enforced Threat, but the game only placed Jagged Blades on the training dummies.



    In this ACT screen, I scored a Crit on a training dummy and a pinata using Lunging Strike, but Jagged Blades was only applied to the pinata.



    In this ACT screen, I score WMS Crits on pinatas and dummies, but the only one Jagged Blade DoT was applied to the pinata.

    One question.

    Guardian Fighter
    Jagged Blades: This feat now consistently procs on all powers that target foes.
    Mark: This power can now properly be used while swinging with Weapon Master's Strike.


    WHY? marks on strike was an Iron Vanguard mechanic. Why you did it?
    no damage decrease for GF??

    YOU MAY NOT UPGRADE SW BECAUSE IT NEVER WILL BE A REAL DAMAGER WITH THIS!!!

    A buffed 750% weapondamage DOT on every target ? GF = DOT class :)
    Maybe that's due to the fact that entity powers or call them aoe idk, only proc stuff once and WMS is considered to be an aoe ? That's what other classes also suffer from, some at least.
    Did you know that you can apply Jagged Blades on different target at once using some At wills?

    I didn't think the weapon enchantment proc "fix" would apply to this, so... *shrugs*

    I know that you could place Jagged Blades on multiple targets if you apply At-wills to each one. But what puzzled me was the tooltip, or, rather, the unclear tooltip.

    I suppose Jagged Blades procs consistently, though I do think the tooltip should be more explicit about "you can only place one Jagged Blades on target per attack you cast".

    CW: Icy rays isn't affected by spelltwisting on tab and sometimes neither with cooldown reductions, it lasts its 12 seconds. no address on this? u are nerfing alot, i dont see any major rework on cw except for the storm spell feature that can now crit, no damage increase to anything, rays of enfeeeblement damage is minor to even consider it an increase, is this how you plan to balance the classes? while classes like trs can stay in perma stealth or OPs have infinite temp HP, cw controls only work on adds that die in a blink and still nothing.... ok!!!!! Also i dont see a rework on the fire archon not being in range for buffs or the melee companions like con artist falling off the platform at Ras nsi while other companions dont. AND another big tooltip you have to address is the paladin's Aura Of courage, make up your mind, Right now the tooltips states it works off the paladin's HP, which would make more sense because putting myself as an example, i have the feat, but dont know how much HP the others have, i can only calculate the damage with me as a reference. And as it is right now, the feat works off the allies HP instead, either you correct the tooltip or fix it to function properly
    Lardeson CW not Mage. Where's my fireball and my thunderbolt?
