  • (Quote) On a side note, we on the forums are a tiny part of the playerbase; the vast majority have no idea what goes on here. Whatever the devs do, I don't think they need to be disproportionately concerned about the consequences of our disapproval.
  • > @hrakh said: > (Quote) > Newton's third law? At a guess.. That would imply that this person had been victimized in some way. I haven’t seen anything in this conversation that would seem to justify the way they came in here carryin…

  • Whenever there's a "rage against the alleged elitists" discussion, the players trying to position themselves as advocating on behalf of the alleged 99% are usually the most toxic and divisive. All I see over and over is players finding …

  • (Quote) I would point out that the game has been moving in the proactive planning direction since ToMM, at least as far as harder content goes. The goal is for reactive healing to cover only for mistakes; otherwise efficient healers are planning th…
  • (Quote) It's okay if you want to stop, but I'll add something else because the issue of rewards specifically in this content and how they might be balanced is still relevant. Farming for AD at a lower difficulty level is appropriately less consiste…
  • (Quote) Players are free to participate in the economy or not, to whichever extent they choose. To return briefly to the professions example, when that part of the economy isn't busted and outdated, players who don't participate in all content can …
  • @mynaam I think your ire is misdirected. I'm not sure how anyone can object with a straight face to the development of and discussion regarding end-game content when this is a game that is 99.9% about the early, "casual," and mid-game pla…
  • On the other hand, if the time and effort is not invested in this content, why have anyone working on it at all? At minimum, balancing the loot drop tables appropriately should not be a massive diversion of resources. As far as additional, spe…
  • There are some people in this thread who can’t see past their own issues and their preconceptions about endgame content and the players who participate in it, and it’s causing them to miss the salient points. Saying that certain content is not di…
  • (Quote) If this content and its rewards don't interest you and don't affect your gameplay, why are you pretending to offer feedback on it? Are you that person who watches content they don't like on YouTube so that they can leave negative comments a…
  • At the risk of being repetitive, I’m going to agree that it doesn’t make the best sense if the only worthwhile reward for completing the trial ends up being the best weapons in the game, which you can then use to...farm the trial you no longer wish …
  • I'm going to aim to keep an open mind. However, I will be a little concerned if it turns out that there's so little incentive to keep running Zariel after getting the weapons that latecomers will be mostly excluded as training runs dry up for them.…

  • I still don't understand the persistent Cleric hate. Almost every ToMM I've done has included a Cleric healer, and I've done enough to be halfway to that whirlwind mount if I were inclined to buy it instead of extra weapons for alts. That's not to…
  • (Quote) Thank you for your response! I'm looking forward to seeing how this trial develops :) I'm also glad to see that you're considering maintaining and, in some places, increasing mechanical complexity while perhaps taking slight pressure off o…
  • (Quote) I'm actually curious about the tethers, myself. I've only done the trial a couple of times on Preview, and just to phase 2, but I've seen the line of swords from the tethers hit my character for 495k with defense capped and no apparent debu…
  • (Quote) Yeah, it could be a platform difference. I don't do public ToMMs unless requested by friends, so my experience may be different for that reason as well. PUGs are such a crapshoot, and I want my time to be spent helping people in guild or a…
  • @"kythelion#3210" Slightly off-topic, but you might want to play with different ToMM parties. We almost always include both a Cleric and Paladin healer in our guild farms, and never has the Cleric been shamed or unwanted. If DPS is a con…
  • (Quote) Yeah, but they already do that to a point by creating feedback threads for multiple issues. I don't think it's fair to expect a dev head nod every few pages for each thread of feedback. When they do that, the other side of the room start…
  • (Quote) I hear you. I don't envy them that part of the job; the people who are supposed to be working on the game get criticism from the player base when they appear not to be spending sufficient time on development, but the feedback is equally vic…
  • The powers, feats, and class mechanic interactions all need help to make Wizard AoE decent and to make Thaum-anything decent. A partial (or maybe total, at this point) reversion of the Directed Flames nerf may be in order. CoI used to be not com…
  • (Quote) I know I've been playing fantasy games and reading the literature for too long, because I immediately thought of the ways in which those things do fit certain variations of those classes ;)
  • (Quote) On one hand, as I said, I sympathize when players complain that their preferred play style is being changed or effectively removed. On the other, I'm not sure that healer DPS capability should be a major concern for game design at the momen…
