    Some questions...

    <font color="yellow">Any updates to crafting/masterwork? Specifically, will we get any new recipes for gear that is relevant at L80? </font> I have been looking at the collections, and I do not see all the new crafting recipes I expected...so, what's happening with crafting? Yes, I know about "craft a dye bottle " to unlock a color, but I am specifically asking about crafting of L80 gear.

    <font color="yellow">When will this go on Preview? </font> (edit: it is there already, so ignore this question)

    <font color="yellow">This mod is rather PvP-heavy (compared to previous mods), with some good PvP-focused gear. Is this an indication of a shift in direction, with an intention of making PvP more important in the future?</font> I really, really hope not, but it would be good to know.

    <font color="yellow">Giant Frog mounts...?seriously? You were supposed to give us giant hamster mounts! Any chance of getting those at some point?</font>

    <font color="yellow">The Mad Dash artifact set has an interesting bonus (stand still for 6 seconds, and get a 10% damage bonus for 6 seconds), but the question is if there is a cooldown. In other words, if you just stand still during a long fight, what would the average uptime of this power be?</font>

    <font color="yellow">Am I missing something, or are there no new boon points being added ?</font>

    Is you-know-who ever going to honor his promisory notes? I mean, it seems he had gold to improve the city, so how about paying us for our hard work, eh ?

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Not a question, but a few observations:

    Minimum IL of 24.000 for the new trial looks fine - makes it real end-game content, but might be a bit disappointing for those who started recently, and have been struggling to reach 20K.

    Increasing the rating cap by 12K (so stats that previously capped at 68K now cap at 80K) is just what we expected...no surprises there.

    The Gith are not a surprise either - The fact that Baldur's Gate 3 features spelljamming mind flayers gave a strong hint about the plans of WotC. We had already been told that there would be a new race this year, but not a new class, so the Gith are the most logical choice, everything considered.

    The Lionheart set is somewhat....underwhelming.

    Is Why isn't there an artifact called the Fiend Folio?

    Will Warlock ever get a review? (eg to address the internal conflicts in the class, like getting bonus healing for having soul sparks but using that resource to power heals, thus making them less effective the more you use them).

    Are their major class balances considerations coming in the next mod? (Specifically warlock healer and fighter dps) please balance them so all are viable for ALL content.
  • aravaleira#9801 aravaleira Member Posts: 2 Arc User
    Is the stronghold getting an update i.e. new content or gear. New stronghold level cap? Possibility of new dragonflight gear type gear? Maybe able to level recruiter to 2 for additional cost and additional influence. Could past level 70 dungeons maybe drop coalesced magicks as well.

    This new PvP map... is it just a map or finally another mode? Getting real sick of domination...

    Btw.: Have you thought about making ilvl-based PvP-queues? e.g. one for 10k- ilvl 10–15k ilvl, one for 16–20k ilvl and one for 20k+ ilvl?

    What do you do for class-balance in PvP?

    I think healing-reduction in PvP is bugged. You should check that out.

    Will the Gith race be free or paywalled?

    Also Githyanki or Githzerai?

    “Recrafted early game zones and stories” does this mean the Valindra story is being retired?
    If the story is changing will we be able to play it on existing characters?

    (Questions answered by preview.)

    Will there be class balance changes again, if yes are they going to be as massive as the undermountain?

    On the far left of the screen, when the 5 Gith Heroes are lined up at the end on the preview, there's one wearing what looks like a short tunic and holding a spear in its right hand. Is that a new Character Class? And if yes is it a monk??

    Why no new class? It has been years since we got one.

    Also Why did you decide on gith?

    Any support planned for smaller guilds?

    People Refuse to join non rank 20 guilds and adventurer shards can only be obtained in obsolete zones. Please conciser adding new zones to list where it can be obtained. Sub rank 10 guilds also have an increasingly harder task farming Influence since the
    Level cap increase

    There are more than BIS players in this game
    It has been 5 YEARS since last new class this is getting ridiculous
    FORCING the majority of your player base to play 4 mod old dungeons and trial will have a bad result on player base
    Please do master/normal version of dungeons. This way content for all MOD 19 have nothing new for vast majority of player base. Giving an EVENT is not same thing as permanent content for non BIS. As we suggested in CDP
    Changes are getting so bad i would rather prefer no new changes (RIP ICE FISHING in winter fest)

    When is it going to be released on Preview Mimic Server? [3] has already been released

    Will there be new ways to gain high quality companion gear (which can now only be obtained from master expeditions - if the player has a lot of luck)? Will there be new companion gear as well or new only character gear?
    Additionally to quests and expeditions, are there other ways planned to make it possible to obtain companion gear in dungeons, skirmishes or trials?

    Is the new fashion system only related to the 'fashion tab' or have there been changes to the 'change appearance'-system (transmutes) to override the look of gear as well? has been implemented as asked already on preview

    Edit: After viewing and testing stuff on preview server

    Will there be a stronghold update as your current concept is flawed.
    WHY: new players cant join the community and contribute influence to the guild as minimum requirements are 60K ArPen (to cause damage) and 60K Defense (so you dont get trashed), Too reach new requirements need those 8k (Arpen/Defense) boons reached at level 10 structure of GH20. Therefore, low level guilds dont have boons to attract higher end players, and existing players will transfer to level 20 guilds to get boons and run influence. I assume since mod16 launch there has been a reduction in GH progression and with it a loss of community and bonding with other players. I have a growing GH6 guild but difficult to attract members that can run influence, I understand this and my main is in a GH20 within the alliance and I take advantage of their boons and contribute all resources to my guild.(not everyone has this option) Reduce the scaling in GH to allow all members to work together to progress the GH or even add a function were when two members are grouped together in the stronghold their stats increase to 60K so that they can at least complete T1's. Without changes GH progression will die a horrible death.

    If we get an update to mastercrafting/crafting levels 71-80: Are there plans to change the calendar? Right now there is a double profession weekend ending 1 day before the new module goes live.

    Agreed. I am in a tiny alliance with a small group of friends, and there are maybe a handful of our toons that can do anything in the stronghold area now. I used to be able to solo the minor heroics on my main, now it's all I can do to survive them. It was hard enough to get anything done before, now it's nearly impossible.

    With the new playable race coming, is there any chance that each account will get 1 free race change token? This way everyone would have a chance to try out the new race.

    1. Should we be expecting any graphics or audio updates?
    2. Will I ever receive the promised gift code for participating in the somewhat recent "play with devs" event on preview server?

    Any long-term plans to add more popular locations such as Waterdeep or Baldur's Gate?
  • jokern9929jokern9929 Member Posts: 7 Arc User
    Will there be less rng and more of a progression system instead this time? Also where is the toggle for the old mod 15 health bar / avatar picture Thomas. And can you ever add back so we can choose the encounters we want from both paths so it allows for more customization. Cause of right now it barely is any. It would be way better if it was more like city of heroes, maybe not that massive but more customization for powers would be appreciated! Thanks.

    Why Gith and not Gnomes?
    Gnomes are a core race whats the reason why GIth is becoming a playable race? They are not even a core race? Does this relate to Baulders Gate Three?

    This is likely to fit with the theme of Module 17. Gith are one of the main inhabitants of Stardock.
