Edit: New minor patch Friday, 8/2!

Release Notes: NW.5.20130714b.7

Known Issues
  • The questing hub in the Blighted Grove has geometry that doesn't quite match the collision. This will sometimes result in players unexpectedly falling down and out of the tree. There's a respawn point just nearby, however.
  • The loot in Malabog's Castle is not yet finalized. Individual bosses currently do not drop loot, and the end-of-dungeon chest gives loot for a random class instead of your class specifically.
  • The Foundry is still pretty crashy on opening and exiting projects.
  • NEW: Lurker's Assault is incorrectly giving a bonus of 20%/25%/30% instead of the stated 15%/20%/25%.

Release Notes
Combat
Trickster Rogue
  • At-will powers no longer consume Stealth.
  • The duration of Lurker's Assault has been increased from 7 to 10 seconds.
  • Lurker's Assault now gives 15/20/25% bonus damage, changed from 5/10/15% crit severity.

  • Auction House search now works in Internet Explorer 8.
  • Profession tasks now correctly show red text on resource quantities when a task is higher level than the player's profession level.

  • The background of the login page has been updated for the Fury of the Feywild module.
  • The Auction House now loads more quickly.
  • Tooltips now look a bit better in Gateway.
  • When switching pages, tooltips no longer linger.

Professions and Inventory
  • 12 slots have been added to the Resource bag.
  • Bounty tokens that previously weren't going into the Currency bag have been fixed. They should all now properly go to the Currency bag.
  • Bounty tokens now stack to 100, up from 40.
  • Bounty tokens that were in the Inventory are now properly auto-moved to the Currency bag.
  • The Currency bag now has 36 slots, up from 24.
  • The Sort button once again works in the Inventory UI.

    TBH if this was the 300MB ish patch you did today...it's not working still get injuries... also your previous patch claimed injuries were turned off but they were not.

    As the moon elf test character I've created myself has reached the level upon which she can obtain a companion and will likely soon gain access to her mount... I'll just put it out there that it'd be nice to see something of the Dawn Unicorn and Sylph soonish.

    Also, in other news... I've noticed on my new Moon Elf Control Wizard that consulting the Paragon Paths gives a brief glimpse of very different powers for a second or so... and those powers appear fire-themed (i.e.: Scorching Burst). So... maybe the Control Wizard has a new Paragon Path coming soon? :D

    Every class has the same effect. CW, TR, and DC each have a new set of powers, while GWF and GF show the other class's existing paragon path.

    Can we get inventory sorting fixed sometime soon? I was really hoping it would be included with the latest Live patch but alas it was not to be.

    D'oh. Thank you; that note was mistaken. I'll remove it now.

    so if you locked the feedback on the last patch notes where would you like us to continue to give you our input for it?

    Official feedback threads in other subforums of Preview, if your feedback is on the same topics. Otherwise, in threads specifically about that feedback. :)

    The latest patch has made everything slow down for me. In the Banshee Gate area I'm being disconnected from server constantly and movement feels slow and sluggish.

    • Female redcaps now have faces.
    • Performance no longer tanks when fighting certain enemies.

    The time reduction to 10 seconds is for the purpose of testing later content hopefully. Is there another reason for such a steep decrease?

    That change is actually open to feedback, not necessarily just for testing! It may change in the future, but some of the feedback was that the 20 hour downtime felt like hitting a wall, and it was jarring to have a tutorial quest the player had to wait 20 hours to complete.

    I was actually one such person, but I've changed my mind. I think I was of the mind that 20 hours was a bit steep for the first task, but I think that there should be some sort of gating. Not that the locusts won't go through the content as fast as they're able, but reducing the time-gating on the tasks by that much is just going to let them whiz through it that much faster.

    You have to wait till 3 AM until the quests reset to proceed. So it's a 24h cooldown anyway, sort of.

    You can't balance a game around "content locusts" anyway. If people want to blow through content let them.

    Reducing the time wall to 10 seconds doesn't make much difference since the quests to gather the seeds takes 20 hrs anyway. Although psychologically maybe it will make people feel better.

    More of an issue is the 4 days between Arcane Resevoir access. Feywild Sparks are too hard to get hold of and the Moonlight Gate key takes 150, meaning over a week to get it. Is there a reason you want us to wait so long? Not like there's much else to do.

    BTW: why not leave the Lurker's Assault bug as it is and see how it goes?

    It's 7 days for Arcane Resevoiur & it is an issue both for the Moonlight gate key & that this is one of the areas my DC gets horrid drops in frame rate & I have to wait several more days before being able to test to see if this patch fixes it!

    I'd like to see, at least, a timer reset, but better a 20hr timer on this (with a note saying that it will be longer on the live server), tp allow testing, with a 3 or 4 day timer on the live not 7!

    It's always given me 4 days wait (I've done it twice now). Can anyone else confirm how long it is for Arcane reservoir?

    Too much loot is disapearing into the 'voids' in the map, this includes things like 'Dark Fey keys' which only seem to drop once for each running of 'The Battle of Sharandar' so if the key drops & vanishes, you do not get a chest from a dungeon that day!

    Whew

    •At-will powers no longer consume Stealth.

    •The duration of Lurker's Assault has been increased from 7 to 10 seconds.

    •Lurker's Assault now gives 15/20/25% bonus damage, changed from 5/10/15% crit severity.

    I guess thank god for small mercy's, if you allow At Will skills to Consume Stealth it would make a stealth class pointless,

    new Lurker changes look interesting, thanks

    For the timing of the campaign tasks, the only one that is jarring is the first one since it is needed to complete a quest. Maybe the quest could be change so it only requires starting the task and not finishing the task. I don't know what that would do to the complete text and any voice acting.

    The time for the rest doesn't really matter since it is the nature of the daily quests that slows us down and not the actual campaign tasks.

    So far for me, it has always reset on Monday morning and since dailies (and I would assume the new weekly as well) now reset for everyone on the same schedule, it would fall to reason that it is a 7 day timer that starts on Monday mornings.

    I haven't had any issues getting the dark fey keys without the Battle of Sharandar and have even gotten multiple keys on the same day.

    So far, on both characters I've run daily on Mimic, the Dark Fey Key has only ever dropped after accepting 'The Battle For Sharandar' and as the first quest type item to drop, never had a second one drop nor a replacement for the one that 'vanished'.

    I've been trying out LA and it's really lame, not at all what I would consider a Daily. If you think how important to a group Astral Shield or Singularity are as Dailies, LA used to be that (as did SE) but now it's just a minor buff for 10 seconds. Not that you shouldn't change it if it's too much as was, but now it's down to nothing. Some sort of replacement or different positive change (make it 15 secs?) rather than straight nerf might help. But as it is I can't see it being of much use (and this is at 30%, you want it down to 25!!!).

    There aren't exactly many other options left, plus TRs have the slowest AP regeneration.

    Hi

    LA really that bad now ? :( doesn't sound good,

    I get why they want to change Lurker's Assault in PVP (people CRY CRY CRY) I mean my own opinion is Bias because I love stealth classes, however Think of the other classes

    GF - C/C Machine in PVP
    GWF -Unstoppable is insane in PVP

    but I still accept then because it comes down to Luck, Some skill and if your Daily's are ready and its PVP

    as always PVP affects PVE and this is the bad part of online Games

    Prefer if they left LA alone and Boost our class to be Stealth based completely,

    ** On another Note is LA bugged currently ? there use to be a silver grey time warp animation with LA now it wont go silver /grey

    * I've just been told the LA animation was removed? can I please ask for this to be restored... really loved the effect
