  • The Dragonborn Race Pack is the same as the one you'd normally buy in the Zen store and there aren't benefits for getting 2 (which is why the Zen store buy option goes away after buying one). While we knew that would limit some players from being a…
  • Mighty Vitality was adjusted to look at base hitpoints similar to how a lot of other powers work. The Barbarian tank will be getting some adjustments in M19 that will be on preview when we get to that stage for players to give feedback on. Mighty …
  • The ones that were purchased should still be reclaimable by any of your that don't currently own them. While they were taken down from a new sales point of view, the reclaims should still be there. If there are specific ones which you purchased but…
  • Thank you for the responses and discussions everyone. Going to be looking at putting max FoV to 100 and will be experimenting a little bit with the maximum camera zoom settings. While I can't give an exact time frame of getting it out due to many v…
  • First I'd like to make a quick comment on handling conversations on the forums. Yes, changes are going to happen and different ones are going to make different people upset for different reasons. There is nothing wrong with going to the forums when …
  • (Quote) First, apologies that I probably broke the quote formatting like I always do when I try to pick out just one piece of a quote chain. Barbarian Tank is an area we have called out internally that we want to give some time to look into. We hav…
  • We have also been watching the balance on PC with the M18 changes. The DPS classes are trending nice and close together which is a great thing. Thaumaturge, Hunter, and Whisperknife are still behind the rest at this point and while I'd like to say …
  • (Quote) This has been mentioned a couple of times, so I did want to clarify something (and you also called it out further down in your post). M18 is a descent into Avernus, players aren't on the ground in Avernus yet, they are on a piece of land th…
  • (Quote) The combat engine has the concept of a new instance comes in and therefore it increase the stack. It doesn't have the concept of caching the previous magnitude, taking the new instance and adding the magnitude to it. Nor does it have the c…
  • (Quote) While the power did do 10% of the damage as a DoT, that doesn't mean it increased your damage by 10%. If the power worked in that it always got the first tick off before being overwritten, it would have been a 2% increase to your powers dama…
  • Just wanted to say it is always good to see players discussing the different approaches to design, just make sure to keep it respectful to each other. This also highlights the fact that it is just as important to post on the forums about the things…
  • Creeping Death has been brought up a few times in this thread, while there will be patch notes as we get more builds onto preview which will cover bug fixes, this one was both brought up enough in this thread and is changing enough to get a specific…
  • (Quote) That is not where the balance changes can from. They came from data which included a much wider view of the game with lots of different endgame content.
  • (Quote) Bug fixes are not the same as major power redesigns. Everything called out in my post is a bug fix with the exception of a change to Rimefire weaving to make it so those bug fixes don't actually bring the paragon path down in damage when it …
  • (Quote) The intent of Directed Flames is never to have smolder/rimefire do more damage than it would have as a DoT, but instead to allow it to be unfront damage for shorter fights. Smolder/Rimefire lasts for 12 seconds which is why that is the coold…
  • Thaumaturge: There has been decent talk in this thread of fixing several of the issues with Thaumaturge around smolder such as: Critical Conflagration will only apply smolder to one target even when an AoE crits Directed Flames does only 50% of th…
  • Dazing Strike has an interrupt. Interrupts are not considered CC and do stop channeling abilities. It is intended behavior.
  • I do appreciate all of the feedback in this thread. To reiterate from the original post, this isn't a final balance pass on the game nor will it bring all dps classes as close together as we'd like. This was a quicker, less thorough and less polishe…
  • I would like to remind people to be respectful to one another when having discussions in threads. Attacking one another is the quickest way to get a thread closed. The thread has gone very far off of the initial topic at this point. I am planning o…
  • (Quote) I always enjoy watching top tier players show off their skills, so I would certainly enjoy seeing a cleric performing that well. For clarification, in game wide data the Arbiter does outperform Dreadnought already, with a larger sample size …
  • (Quote) scaling, dreadnought, and hellbringer changes are all m19, arcanist adjustments are m18. None of that was the intention of the thread which is why it seems out of place for conversation in the preview forums for something a full module away.
  • (Quote) The numbers were for ToMM runs over the period specified and it is accurate data that has been normalized for better comparison. We also have the whisker plots to see the full range of every player over the time period and where they fall. …
  • Scaling Always a popular topic so let's give a very brief history to this point and talk about the work going on for M19 and beyond. I joined the Neverwinter team as Cloaked Ascendancy shipped. At that time there wasn't any useful scaling, althoug…
  • While I am always hesitant to go off topic in a thread as it makes the information about the initial topic hard to find. In this case, at least so far, there doesn't seem to be any confusion about the information in the initial post, so I will brief…
  • (Quote) I can see how my wording could be taken that way. We aren't changing or removing the old gear from the game, simply removing it from the tradebar store and then adding back to the tradebar store transmute options for the pieces players still…
  • Improving the Tradebar store is in the plans for M19 (I realize that feels quite a ways away given that M18 will just be showing up on preview soon, but that is how far ahead we work on most of the plans for the game). There will be straightforward…
  • The tank hit point bonus was always intended to apply to sources considered as base stats only. When M16 went live, companions were setup in an incorrect way that was causing them to be considered player base stats. This also caused several other i…
  • (Quote) Magnitude is only part of the equation, the other part is time of the attack. Melee hand of blight attacks are 0.4 seconds, ranged is 0.65.
