    Panther - Increases the power of your attacks against rooted targets by 10% (Duration of 10 sec? i thik)

    Paranoid Delusion - Increases At-Will damage against disable, or held targets by 10% (Duration of 10 sec? i think)

    add the Slyblade Kobold and Boom!!!

    HR and CW the new Gods.

    If only one could actually root or disable bosses.

    I believe that the effects are activated equal to the controlled moment of the CW and the Combatant's Maneuver of Inisgnia Bonus even the targets being immune.
    Unfortuynally dont work that way (when it work at all

    Skyblade Kobold is Only on Encounters and Paranoid Delusion is on At-wills
    Panther could be a nice combo for both i think but i dont have to test

    And plus my Kobold is bugged , not working, sometimes he decreases the dmg done...
    and whne working i oly notice the dmg inscrease in really rooted/controlled targets (entangled foor example).

    I'm probably being a bit dim here, but...

    Slyblade Kobold states that it, "increases Encounter damage against Disabled or Held".

    What do those terms encompass in the New World Order?
    Are they very specific, or do either of those two terms include "Root"
    Common Sense would suggest that a "Root" effect is a "Hold", but... this game can't decide whether something "Resists" or "Avoids".

    I really wish the Effect Terminology (in fact most technical terms in the game could do with this...) was streamlined and explained in plain English somewhere.
    If this does exist in a form that's more reliable than a 4 year old Reddit post, someone... PLEASE point me at it.

    WE STILL CAN'T DISCARD COMPANIONS !

    Because of this we can't replace a companion by a higher-ranked version of the same companion.

    We also can't remove the redundant companions created when first logging into mod16.

    What I am seeing from the so called BiS list is that most players will have to spend in game resources or money to get back to where they are now with companions. Yeah that is what player want to see, the need to spend on something we already spent plenty on. Especially if you bought or upgraded your companions with real world money recently.

    I like most of the companion changes like using comp gear and going to runestone vs a regular enchantment. The update to the companion actives I dislike and I'm hoping the devs revisit this and continue to make adjustments here.

    Companion influence will be calculatet on the WHITE level companion stats, not the actual level the companion have (green,blue,purple or orange). 1 Point in CHA give 0,5% companion influence and is calculated as 10 stat Points.
    Dont know if this is WAI or a BUG

    For anyone interested, I made a list of the stats affected by an augment's "Enhancement" power here : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RzTEWS-tPNWYWynZW1hcR0W46rGtOeV9i78Lm2dOdEE/edit?usp=sharing

    Augments whose Enhancement affects Hit Points actually have less Hit Points rather than more.

    The tooltip for Enhancement is wrong for Black Ice Ioun Stone (Awareness instead of Combat Advantage) and Red Dragon Ioun Stone (Armor Penetration instead of Hit Points and Awareness instead of Deflect).


    If anyone has access to Icosahedron Ioun Stone and/or Gelatinous Cube, I'd be glad to know which extra stats they get. But don't trust the tooltips, level them to rank 30 and check their ratings instead.

    what is column e?

    angel of protection no longer heals in combat?

    angel of protection no longer heals in combat?

    It heals in combat, but for very very small amount (360 HP in my case). This amount is completely useless. The developers just force us to use augments because everything else is useless too except for stats, where augments are better.

    If you are using augments you wont need companion influence stat ( i haven't heard of any change to augments formula that includes companion influence stat), for non augments pick one that fits the role you play and that stays next to you while on a fight.

    Yeah, with this many patches without them even mentioning it as a known issue, I'm worried that the completely useless combat companions are a choice, not a bug, like a broken weapon damage coefficient or something.

    It kinda feels like companion abilities are supposed to have a magnitude that functions off your weapon damage, probably in the single or low-double digits for most things... that isn't actually referencing your weapon damage, so we're seeing damage and healing based on the power gain on a baseline of zero to one damage/healing.

    So when is there gonna be implementation of companion gear besides the ones offered by campaign tasks that are wonderfully 'permanently missable' Like say due to a bug happening where one of the 9 relics didn't highlight like it was supposed to. Can even make it obtainable by seals of crown or mountain.

    I'm going to check this out tonight. If this is true, so many PS4 players are waisting resources ranking or buying dark enchantments.

    If companion influence only impacts summoned non-augment companions, well we may actually be able to have those comps out perform the augment simply by having enough comp influence. I can quickly check this on my wizard by removing my utility enchantments.

    I don't believe this is true. I recently removed comp inf enchants to test out tacticals and the stats from augment/bondings were definitely affected when I reduced CI.

    The only thing that doesn't appear to be affected by CI is the extra 3k enhancement stats. (someone else concluded this)

    If companions are going to be so unresponsive what we actually need an Ioun Stone that can simply generate an AoE that can either heal the user, buff team-mates or debuff enemies. Such an Ioun Stone could easily be BiS for a Healing Warlock to be sustainable and not so squishy.
