    ranger melee weapons broken if you equip your own made weapons from your workshop, they will do 0 damage. Mulhorand and found stuff work fine. Workshop made bows work fine. Big gaps in armor making for Ranger vs other classes.
  • gildriadorgildriador Member Posts: 215 Arc User
    Some change for the wizard are not in the patch note=>

    Empowering Flames is now removed and it is replaced by Frigid winds for Thaumaturge.

    Arcanist have a new feat :

    Iced Lightning:

    Storm Pillar, Lightning Bolt(New name of Sudden Storm), Storm Spell and Storm Fury do 10% more damage to target affected by chill.

    Thank you for those change.

    What this exactly does now? CHA bonus is affected by it?

    I see it black, 10 days left, and the number of corrections to be done remains huge. Class balance does not exist for now.
  • martelis1981martelis1981 Member, NW M9 Playtest Posts: 120 Arc User
    Not a word about the broken scaling? Something SO IMPORTANT and don't fix it at only 10 days of the launch? ¬¬

    Downscale still broken
    No drops from runic encounters, which means no master expedition

    Only one more week to go :)

    Actually Runic Encounters do drop resonances, but its incredibly inconsistent. So its "sort of" working at the moment.
    Obsidian Moonlight - Paladin
    Obsidian Oath - Warlock
    A whole lot of other Obsidian toons as well.

    I see enchantments exchange is not available on this new preview update - is this going to be final? Not a word on patch notes... Will we be able to exchange our enchantments when mod 16 launches?

    Yeah, the enchantment exchange isn't working/available for weapon/armor enchants, and normal enchants. Hopefully this is a bug and not intentional.
  • picar66picar66 Member, NW M9 Playtest Posts: 118 Arc User
    Mount speed is just incredible slow. Even it is 80%,110% or 140% mount isnt faster then walking.
  • draugkirdraugkir Member Posts: 99 Arc User

    Scaling is broken as hell too.

    Will mod 16 be delayed.. cos so many bugs and stuff missing..
  • wilsonekpolskawilsonekpolska Member Posts: 26 Arc User

    Lightning Bolt won't do damage on non-level ground/uphill/downhill (much like sudden storm).

  • alfalolzalfalolz Member Posts: 161 Arc User
    Sun Burst feat is broken. When feated it still knowbacks everything .... and doesnt add extra pips.
  • alfalolzalfalolz Member Posts: 161 Arc User
    New Arbiter feath are looking ok, but Angel of Deaths as well as Perfect Balance is totally useless in pvp wise... we need to reduce number of stacks by half at least for perfect balance to be able to use it efficiently....

    I'd still call it "Conductive Ice," personally, but I'd love it if more classes had flexible, playstyle-theming feats like that.

    There is no environment or music sound during character creation now that it is all updated to Undermountain.

    At level 10 you are told that a 2nd Daily has unlocked, but that doesn't happen until level 12 now.

    Hello
    have ask to enchant exchang. in mod will i bee able to exchang Rank 13 Brutal too Black ice enchatment ? or no bcs atm i dont see this option

    Eveb if the enchant exchange comes back, the answer is probably "no"....you would be able to exchange Brutal for other 2-stat enchants like Vicious or Cruel or exchange Black Ice for 3-stat enchants like demonic or draconic.

    Then again, maybe the BtA enchant exchange is just gone. I mean, you continue to be able to exchange obsolete stuff like Eldritch runestones and Insignia of Vigor/Leeching, but a general exchange for any weapon/armor/regular enchant...*shrug* Maybe it will be back, maybe it will get redesigned and maybe it will not show up.... no official comment on that yet.

    Quite frankly, it's not such a big deal.
    Hoping for improvements...
  • cdnbisoncdnbison Member, NW M9 Playtest Posts: 806 Arc User
    The enchant exchange was always setup for an equivalent type of enchant - i.e. single stat for single stat, 2 stat for two stat etc. So Draconic for Black Ice exchange was possible, but not Brutal for Black Ice.

    I agree with @adinosii , though - not a huge deal if it's not there, though it'd be nice if the new enchants were available, as an option.

    poor people cant make enchantments from scratch so the exchange even for bta is big deal for them.

    I believe that adinosii point is that even with the trade allowed, if it becomes bound and is not a permanent function is better (even for poor people, i'm one of them) to take more time and trade them, to not be bound to something, because later it may be more expensive to level him up than sell and buy a new (better) one... (usually happens to non bis stuff)

    FYI: The enchantment exchange is back and enchantments pulled are still BtA.

    armor and weapon aren't back though. wait were they ever there? or were they just confirmed to be avail at launch
  • mdarkangel#4696 mdarkangel Member Posts: 442 Arc User

    They're there as well. On the same tab as normal enchantments. IIRC they were always on the same tab.
