  • If you would have asked me a few weeks ago if my r15's would be almost as good as r9's in the next "update" I would have said no chance. But here we are. If Cryptic has proven anything with this garbage is that they can do ANYTHING they want to their game and we the players have NO say in the outcome.
  • This is the kind of HAMSTER that will always happen when you use the live server for your beta test. If you don't feel like a lab rat after this week I don't know what to tell you except.... You are not alone, we are right there with you!
  • Just did the weekly Baphomet in the Maze Engine campaign after this patch dropped. What used to take a couple hits at iLVL 38k, pre combat rework, now takes me 5 minutes. This is one of my best characters too. I used to do my weeklies on all 8 characters and most of the weaker ones took a minute or two to do this boss…
  • Lower damage is nice, but I'd wager they are just HUGE hitpoint sponges still. You may not die from their damage, but you may die of boredom instead.
  • "Enchantments and Enhancements Negation Enchantment once again properly increases in efficacy as it ranks up." So no change to the amount or percentage enchantments/runestones/boons offer? Guess they will continue to be much less useful. Might be why you are more or less giving away Trade bars now :(.
  • This is what you get when you want to do a balance patch with a sledge hammer. Also it does not help that Cryptic does not listen to any of the casual gamers out there. I am one of them. I don't do random elite dungeon queues simply because I don't like having to memorize so many mechanics and therefore let down my team.…
  • I have read the entire thread and have little to add to it...that said. If your intention was to "balance" out the players you could have not used a larger hammer here if you tried. Enchantments/runestones/boons went from something to be proud of while also being wanted/needed to MEH. I get it you wanted to make…
  • Positive points, let me see: Well I was definitely seeing more of the scenery in the emptier areas. So I got to see the artwork more... I got to spend more time looking up at the skybox in most trials too, so there is that... Spending more time on reddit and the forums instead of playing, working on my typing skills... And…
  • I saw your post on Reddii as I was leaving for work so I did not reply. I will do so here. Here's the problem with an apology, it assumes blame and generally requires something in return. The Devs IMO don't want to give away any more free stuff and thus just issue a statement. It has become quite clear as of late the only…
  • I don't think there will be a rollback, even if they wanted to, which they've given no indication of, or addressing how people feel about the changes, or its even a problem. It would be too late now IMO. The first day would have been fine, but after that we are struck with these changes, for good or evil. Edit: apparently…
  • Stay tuned for next weeks sale on swahili language pack, VIP only 20000 zen.
  • No worries m8, and the OP was asking for feedback. I was just stating the fact that total end game builds seem to have the least problems with this patch. My alliance high level members are loving it actually, but then again they are all end game and run T3 hunts on the regular. I like my alts and they give the game more…
  • I'm sorry but how exactly does this help newish players? I get it that you want to increase the iLVL for end game players, and that is good for them I guess. Honestly thought I would just be happy if I could just take my alts through Shalador without ending up on my back 90% of the time.
  • I am in an alliance with some VERY long time players and it seems many love the changes. I do not. I guess it all depends on if you are fully end game equipped, can do TOMM in your sleep and TIC just for laughs. The rest of us without the cash or time to have 10 mythic mounts, companions and collars, it is a different…
  • It seems to have fixed itself after a few hours, however, I am leaving this post up for future use. And the point stands this IP verification is dumb.
  • My tank still uses the drowned set when he is fighting demo in the first phase of the trial. The healing is awesome when it is up and you can't damage him in the first round anyways so it fits. Like I said I like to think out of the box :).
  • I just made the mirage set for my rogue for mod 20 changes. I was hoping that with the changes to weapon sets it would become viable although no where near BIS. I like to think outside the box but I must ask are your "mirages" suppose to take damage when they spawn? They don't even last long enough to notice in most fights…
  • I find it totally amazing that the devs have the time to do yet another total rework on the combat and stats of this game and don't have the time to at least increase the drop rate of this tome. I'm no programmer but making it purchasable in the campaign store too seems to me to be less dev time consuming than say redoing…
  • Sorry for the snips but it is relevant to my point. On the other side of the coin I like to play DPS that can sustain themselves though a high defense/deflect and a high incoming heal as I find this to be fun. Mind you I never do any of the higher end content as my DPS would be considered "sub-par" but I like to survive…
  • GOD I hope not, I have the absolute worse luck in everything, I got only 3 times 25 tb, 9 gems, one companion 10 pack and a couple genie's gifts thusfar. Remember not everyone that gets a daily key gets anything good from it! As it sits I didn't get the KOS throughout the entire run of the last lockbox and although it…
  • Your luck is definitely better than mine (1 key only - 3 gems, 25 trade bars, and 1 cube), but you give me hope for the future.
  • I missed my chance at getting one of those and I won't be bothering to try now with my daily keys. The new lockbox is far superior to it and I am sure there will be other mystic mounts added in the future. If not it is no big loss for that price anyways.
  • Not to bad when you consider a minimum of 25 trade bars every box guaranteed. At that rate it is approximately 11 rank 15 enchantments when they are on sale for 800 a year. I'll take that over the refinement garbage I get now nine times out of ten with the current ones.
  • This is my 3rd time having to remake my character(s) from the ground up and honestly Cryptic it stinks! I payed many hundreds of dollars in the past to give me a slight edge up, but that has come to an end. I only play now to let my membership run out and just play low level characters as something to do. I know the…
  • On a similar vein are the collar upgrade tokens, They drop like candy but I only still have my original epic collar I got for free on one character, no other drops. At this rate getting to one maxed character might happen before they shut down the servers but I doubt it!
  • The AD/Zen exchange has been getting longer and longer. I have an order in from Sept 14th for 2k and it still isn't filled. That leads me to believe that many of the ones left now are the those that pay for everything in cash. I see flying wings and giant companions everywhere and very few horses and minor mounts anymore.…
  • I have made a decision regarding all the new "updates". From this point forward I will just settle for building characters based on what I get as drops in the game. I would most likely just quit, and will once the Z/AD exchange no longer allows me to purchase membership with the AD I generate, but the combat is top notch…
  • Unless you can buy companion upgrade packs with AD from the wonderous bazaar I can see myself skipping this "update" like I am with the collars. Just another thing to make the ZAX exchange more constipated IMO. Seriously hunting for whales at this point will just lead to many empty servers, but I suppose that is working as…
  • "- Grung’s Instincts: This player power now functions consistently with the Snow Leopard’s." If this fixes the problem of it not working on it's own then Thank you!! Edit to add: It don't and still procs erratically apparently has a 3% chance on crit at legendary.. USELESS!!
  • As a player that has 4 off-hands I agree completely. If it is too much trouble to program a routine that checks your drops for the weapon hand you don't have yet, could we AT LEAST get the possibility to trade in for the one you want? Even at a 4 to 1 basis I could still have a complete set, if I want to farm for others…
