  • Does anyone know if the critical heal mechanics has changed with mod 17? I say this because I have come across some videos saying something changed, but what exactly is not known, or is this just rumours?
  • (Quote) Will try this out. What is your average paingiver ranking in relations to others, how much more damage do the others do normally?
  • I already made a comment on this in general discussion thread, so will quickly say that nothing is viable at this point. The best one can do is to do the solo content and the intermediate dungeons, anything more and the archer will be a burden to th…
  • The ranger archer is easily the weakest dps class of them all. The only class you will beat in paingiver is healing support (even beating tank roles is not a given) if stats are more or less equal. At best you will do about half damage than the best…
  • (Quote) The other party needs to take some responsibility as well, they cannot just keep ignoring all the high damage and stand there hoping that you have to heal whatever is thrown at them. I have seen this in plenty PUGS, when they inevitably star…
  • I think its worth playing, the changes to the game mechanics were sorely needed, now dungeons such as TONG are much more balanced and enjoyable to play.
  • Still trying to figure out what works best for a tank but here are some of the things I found. 1 Yes people need tanks, things like master demogorgon and the arcolith need someone to protect the rest. 2 HP by far, defense should not be hard to max (…
  • (Quote) It was always a fun class to play, just because one does not make it to number one on paingiver does not cancel this fact.
  • Overall I am happy with these changes, they had to happen, the alternative of leaving the increasingly unbalanced mess was the worst possible thing to do. Having said that, there are always gripes, for me clerics should not be outhealed by warlocks,…
  • Very good news. I just hope they get completely get rid of that stupid power share mechanic and make the cleric what it was supposed to be - a healer. All these years of hoping that the cleric will become a cleric again, how can anyone who likes pla…
  • Yes the healer is obsolete, and I really REALLY hate writing this, but this is the blatant truth (just check out how many discussion there in the cleric forum on how to improve their healing...). Any player expecting to play a healer like in other g…
  • You are talking about the first week of VT, TONG is more than a year old now and there is no way the failure rate of an average PUG in VT a year after is anything near as bad as TONG. In VT you could communicate to the others about calling their clo…
  • (Quote) That is not the experience I had with VT then, sure most ended in failure but I had a fair of wins in random parties. Perhaps I just had bad luck, but I have had zero success in TONG PUGS (and the ones after that) and that is with more trie…
  • (Quote) Interesting you mention VT, it was a very hard boss to beat when it came out, but it was still beatable. It did require some coordination and communication with a party, but it was possible to win with a PUG party. It is not possible to win …
  • While I somewhat agree, ultimately its the developers only catering for the elite players that is the problem (and as others have said not all elite players are selfish players). As for the "get good" argument that does not apply for all t…
  • (Quote) You can earn more power points from experience overflow, but it is random, so you need to play a lot to eventually get all your power points. You can also buy them with zen. As for the respec you should have gotten a free one with this new …
  • This is useful, thanks. I am definitely going to try this since the nerfing of the ranger makes this the only way to go for me in parties. I do have to ask however, how well received this role is for parties? In PUGS are there a lot of kicking becau…
  • The archery path is now worse than ever before. Losing a huge amount of critical chance from the nerf means one has to divert power stats to get it back to where it was. As people were mentioning in the feedback forums, standing still to boost ones …
  • (Quote) Did you also happen to track the price changes of the utility enchantments as well, especially the radiant ones? I also need to throw in a question that I assume close to nobody would know. How does the Leprechaun bag of holes power work, h…
  • (Quote) I think of this video when it comes to the kind of combat this game is pushing players into. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nr2GeWiDrdY
  • To extend that question does the game treat the Atropal as undead?
  • (Quote) This is a good example that when they try improve the class it usually just makes it worse. I would just love to know what the thinking process is for the people behind these changes.
  • On a more serious note, the cleric was indeed intended as a healer by the devs, in fact it still is as they are still have a ton of features that are healing related and they still are grouping the cleric as a healer for the queues. It looks pointl…
  • I need to repeat what others are saying here (and hope that with enough voices some developer notices), the biggest problem by far for the archery class is not getting party buffs. The difference of buffs is on an orders of magnitude scale, there re…
  • The point of each class having a damage role was so that support classes can do solo content, nobody can really disagree with this. However having tank classes easily beating what are supposed to be real dps classes is simply not a valid game design…
  • Many defend the meta by saying that Cryptic does not have the ability to fix it and one should accept that, I am however going to go back to the opening post and make some proposals on how to fix it (because the meta is clearly not close to being re…
  • (Quote) This is because of the bigger issue that almost everyone sees the solution to every problem is to get more dps. The archer is challenging yes, but NOT struggling, it requires more understanding of ones surrounding and enemies but in my opini…
  • Barkshield is not a good enchantment if you are are receiving endless hits (which I assume the Guardian should be getting). Briatwine is better than nothing, and it is pretty cheap as they were dropping from lockboxes a lot.
  • (Quote) Worse than just comparing those two, I have noticed with ever increasing frequency that the three supposed support classes (DC, GF, OP) tend to beat both SW and CW as soon as their IL starts going over 12k or so, and the same for the other d…
