  • I was really hoping that Directed Flames would get another pass to make it actually do what the tooltip says, but right now it's decent for AOE, when things die too quickly to worry about the number of times it procs. However a huge bug I don't even understand is the Critical Conflag won't trigger Directed Flames if you…
  • Chilling Advantage Now directly applies Rimefire Smolder in addition to Chill. This is a nice change, though it seems like Rimefire Smolder only applies once at at activation. Ray of Frost did a rimefire every 4.6s, Chilling Cloud did one every 1.8s. That happens to be their full animation cycle time. Directed Flames So…
  • @rgutscheradev I have two specific questions: What use-case are you imagining for Arcane Bolt? In comparison to Magic Missile it just doesn't stack up. * Magic Missile hits 5 times every 2.0s, and 3 of those hits proc weapon enchants. * Arcane Bolt hits 4 times every 3.7s, and all 4 proc weapon enchants. Both powers grant…
  • @aday that's a good catch, I didn't notice the effectiveness went up. So it's not modifying the base damage, just the final damage (lowering target damage reduction probably). I was so used to looking at the change to Base Damage that I didn't notice the effectiveness changing.
  • After talking with some other folks it looks like Directed Flames won't proc if any damage has been done in the last second, period. Not just if something tries to trigger smolder/rimefire.
  • @drago thanks for the numbers, that's very helpful to see from an endgame player. On preview in my gear I'm averaging 100kish on both Arcanist and Thaum. On Thaum I'm not using Directed Flames of course and I *am* using Chilling Cloud for my at-will. I also really like Arcane Conduit on Arcanist as it's not a dot, and I…
  • Directed Flames Testing Test: Ray of Frost + Chilling Advantage Result: 80 ROF hits, 4 Rimefire hits. Notes: The only time Rimefire procs is when there is a >1s gap from last RoF stopping and next starting. Test: Chilling Cloud + Chilling Advantage Result: 52 Chilling Cloud hits, 12 Rimefire hits Notes: It looks like only…
  • @"admiralwarlord#3792" Our at-wills are absolutely pitiful. I'm not suggesting we need to match Brash Strike--just pointing out that a barbarian standing there swinging Brash Strike with no features or feats is going to obliterate our at-wills. And we ARE comparing--since the whole point is to bring wizard DPS in-line with…
  • I've completed more precise testing down to the tenth of a second in the logs: At-Wills: Magic Missile | 50 mag | 5 hits in 2.0 seconds | 125 DPS Ray of Frost | 55 mag | 8 hits in 4.6 seconds | 96 DPS Arcane Bolt | 100 mag | 4 hits in 3.7 seconds | 108 DPS Chilling Cloud | 80 mag | 3 hits in 1.8 seconds | 133 DPS Brash…
  • Tested all the powers on Preview this evening on naked wizards with features that didn't impact numbers, and no feats (just to get baselines). If I don't mention a power, the change was exactly as posted and nothing is noteworthy. * Magic Missile is 50 mag, but because the last cycle hits 3 times, it's 250 mag in 1.3s or…
  • The TL;DR of it all is Arcanist is getting AOE buffed, some bugs fixed (slight DPS improvements), and their flagship daily nerfed slightly. I do suspect that slowing down the recharge is to avoid a limitation of the engine that causes phantom cooldowns. If that's the case then buff the damage bonus to compensate,…
  • I can't change the appearance of my ranger's main hand (bow). I have no appearance items in the main hand slot yet. I tried to add 6 different bows from the AH and every one of them said the appearance slot was full.
  • It seems really strange to not have LOMM in the random queues, but whatever. Running Expert+Trial will be 57k plus roles & chests. Then my guild will just be queuing LOMM private I guess. It's really weird that the Dungeon queue (5.5k) pays less than the Skirmish queue (6k). What was the thought process there?
  • Lorkeon's Guide to Paladins My MMO Minds guide; it's current to Mod 17.
  • OP would not do well on Shark Tank.
  • Please note that the polarity debuff from collisions (or being too far apart) can be cleansed. It just requires 2 cleanses to remove.
  • https://old.reddit.com/r/Neverwinter/comments/c2ipgo/quick_dirty_paladin_guide/ Sounds like you could use some of this advice.
  • So after whacking on target dummies and parsing for awhile, I made my decisions for Justicar At-Wills: 1. Valorous Strike - Use it till 71 for single-target. It's good damage, but a slightly slower animation than Shielding Strike, no add-in effect, and physical damage. 2. Radiant Strike - Only use it till you get Oath…
  • While leveling up my Dreadnought I was struggling to get this feat to work as well. To the point that I was about to post that it didn't work. Then it worked. At first I would just mash my daily button till they both fired off. Then later I've noticed I have roughly 5 seconds to trigger the Shockwave. My informed…
  • I was unable to sell enough Black Ink to the South Sea Trading Company to reach 500K. I got to 498300, and then it wouldn't let me sell more, claiming I couldn't have more of that currency. (2100 from the Black Ink would have put me over 500K.) I was able to just spend 1700 AD to reach 500K. Even after completing the quest…
  • I can't tell if an artisan I hire is green/blue/purple when it's time to accept/decline them, or manage them. I can only see their color when assigning them to a task. Also I have 25 Leadership and had only started with 35 Gathering.
  • Our very first encounter power disorients what it hits. I interrupt casting all the time with it. I actually use it over Sacred Weapon currently. With a full charge it does a LOT of damage and disorients everything (it's a big burst) for 4 seconds. But you can also just tap it for a quick interrupt.
  • Well this sucks. The key just reads "Account Bound". It seemed logical that I would need one for each of my 6 characters, if I didn't want to have to mail it to each alt to get them up there constantly (as I do play them, they don't just sit there). You only have to have 1 key for the whole account, and you don't even have…
  • No doubt. I had to do Beachcombing three times this morning. Apparently I'm some kind of savant though--I got the click in before four other people standing around the chest all three times! I've got to run the skirmish once more on each of my five alts and I'll have keys for all of them, finally. Since the key is account…
  • Yeah PE#23 is borked for me too
  • Same issue in Firefox. Tried IE for giggles... and it worked! I went to uninstall Chrome and reload it, and it said please close all instances. Forgot about that System Tray chrome icon and forced it to close, then reopened Chrome, and the Gateway is working again!
  • How's this for trippy: I have two computers (desktop at home, and a laptop for work); the desktop times out in Gateway when trying to select a character, but the laptop works just fine on Gateway. Both are on the same network, and because I'm using Chrome, they even have the same cache settings (using the same Google…
