    Are some of these not on the current Preview build yet? I ask because...I'm still getting destroyed in the Glyphworks instances and they don't seem to have changed since last week.

    Directed Flames has been reworked due to unintended behaviour of Smolder. Before mod release, it's already bugged (you can deal Smolder and Rimefire Smolder When you cast first fire spell, then cold spell at begining of a fight).

    We are most amused.

    On console the Compy's 5% bonus falls off every time you change instance, load screen, etc. You must unequip it's bonus and then re-equip the bonus to get it back. Supposedly they have a fix for it but will not release the fix until sometime in a future patch. Sorry, words no longer mean nothing to me from this company. Talk is cheap, action is where it's happenin' so I'll believe it when I see it...

    btw, since the changes to the Tamed Velociraptor were announced n these patch notes, I noticed a lot of players are still unaware of it...don't worry tho, I posted the news on all the relevant fb groups, discords, etc. since the majority of dps players use it and defintely should be made aware.

    Can you please clarify the wording of this. "This isn't intended behavior but is also not an exploit to use in the meantime."

    Do you mean "This isn't intended behaviour, however we do not consider this to be an exploit". OR
    Do you mean "This isn't intended behaviour, and is an exploit that is not to be used".

    I don't think he could have worded that better. It is not an intended behavior i.e. they are looking for a fix and it isn't an exlpoit in the meanwhile = you can use it in the meantime without being reprimanded.

    He definitely could have worded that better... it will not be considered an exploit if use in the mean time would have been ideal. Especially considering the way they handle bans. They need someone to proof read these

    Wizard (mof) is currently an unplayable class. And after the swap it's even worse, probably the lowest base damage and almost the longest casting time's. Nobody plays engame anymore.
    Smolder and rimfire don't work at all. The effect is not applied to the targets.
