    Basically this is one of the worst changes to PvP you could ask for, they tried this same thing in EoF on pvp servers, you could only cure 1 determental at a time so lets say you charm a healer and then stack more arcanes on top of them. You could not cure that charm and had longer cure timers to try and get to the charm. The change was an epic failure and finally after enough bitching it got removed, but that took MONTHS AND MONTHS to go into effect.

    There are no abilities like charm but this is still a huge problem. 40seconds is an extremely long time in pvp and especially with the crazy amount of determentals you can have stacked on at you at one time.

    Shamans will be perma interrupted because dots are ticking on them, making long cast timers pretty much impossible.

    Sometimes it is enraging to see your debuffs and damage cured off someone every few seconds but 40seconds to wait for cures....that is waaaaaay to long.

    It is upsetting to me that the pvp community (this will effect BG players as well) are not more vocal about the changes that are being shoved down our throat, this game is not designed for PvP but with a good system in place it can still be damn fun.

    If you enjoy pvping, even casually I urge you to go to official forums and complain about this, just one post will make a difference. Do not let this go live in its current form.

    Here is a post that needs more replies. New update, pvp changes.

    One more reason to turn my group window off, all the healers who actually care about their group are going to get fucked nice and hard by this.

    Here are the new toughness changes

    Toughness

    Toughness has been changed to 30% damage reduction at max skill and will provide PvP Critical Mitigation:

    * 15% starting at 10.
    * 30% starting at 70.
    * 45% starting at 80
    * 60% at level 90.

    The skill cost to reach max Toughness has also increased by 50% at all tiers.

    * Example: You now need 900 skill vs. 600 skill to reach Max Toughness at level 90.

    So now they are taking in the complete opposite of direction of everyone getting raped instead of people dying.

    Toughness change would be awesome, except the cure change coming at the same time.

    Seriously....I dont have faith in humanity anymore.

    On the cures......


    The biggest problem the last time they tried this was the way charm worked. I don;t see this as any sort of "proper" fix, but barring a complete itemization overall, this might not be so bad. Debuffs are fuckign trivial right now in PvP. Scouts should have more debuffs in PvP. While the OP does PvP and is very good at it, he doesn't have a good grasp on what the average players experiences. Pudaan has the best raid gear in the game, and is never without a group ( with healers) in th ebest gear in game.

    Again i don't see this change as exactly the right one, but it won;t hurt in anyway. Healers are way, way too overpowered. What the fuck is wrong with cutting back the ability of healers to cure off all ( and scouts get the most debuffs obviously) the shit almost instantly.

    Think about these changes logically, not as if they were perfect, but think about if they might make a postive difference in balancing. This change helps scouts, who other than broken assasins, are screwed up right now. Get pots, use a heal channel for PvP, adapt, or STFU. The original poster is completely out of touch with what the average player sees day in day out in PvP.

    OMG a scout debuff lasts 4o seconds now?!?!? OMG!! You mean utility migth mean something again in PvP? OMG healers actually have to go back to thinking about what they cure??? These changes, and again I want to be clear here this isnt a perfect fix, but these changes are probably going to help A LOT. Short of scrapping everything they've doen so far (which honestly is what they should do!) this is a good change,.

    Downloading test ....again
