    I'm probably about to get banned on official for the following post. I'm just tired of Xelgad. He's an awful dev. He's fucking lazy, everything he does is half assed, he thinks he knows the game better then everyone and has no fucking clue what is going on. The truth hurts, but we need to shelter the devs from that, and even the community people by just giving them numbers instead of names.

    PvP ruining PvE strikes again.

    Your game will never be effected until SOE applies PVP rulesets to Duels, then you'll be in trouble. This changes nothing.

    If SOE was to do anything, they SHOULD add a new tier of adornments which actually match content that was not designed around mechanins that are over 3 years old. ESPECIALLY, after the stat inflation of DOV.

    Just to clarify: This fix was not made due to PVP or anything PVP related.

    So why exactly was this change made? I question your sanity and view of the reality of how things in this game work. Lately there has been a serious of rash changes that you've had to go back and rethink. Everything seems half complete and lazy.

    AA revamp. Awesome! Except that we didn't really look at the useless AA's and make the unique and desirable, we just put crit bonus on them. Crit bonus which doesn't scale, and on a lot of the abilities doesn't matter. Sweet 5% crit bonus on my Emergency Heal with a base 7.5 minute recast, that really makes me want to take that AA!

    Then we went right on and did the same thing to class focus. But it's okay, you can take some CB instead. Except I only have 3 class focus that actually mean anything to me at 92 in average gear.

    This change? Unless you're trying to take Templars out of the game I don't see exactly what you are trying to do. You don't like that a 3 year old adorn actually scales with player power instead of become entirely useless? Maybe you should realize that raid mobs proc 60k+ hits of unwardable damage on every hit, and can hit multiple times a second just slaughtering tanks, tanks that now have less avoidance because the plate tanks aren't going to get as much from the Brawler anymore. This helped mitigate those spikes, because no healer can predict that and time the heals exactly. Having a Warden helps some, but that Warden is going to completely replace the Templar in the raid now instead of just being in a different group as it stands now.

    The proc nerf is over. It should have been over a long time ago. It was a bad idea to begin with. The only problem with proc's is that there where so many that proc'd 100%, that was the source of your class balance problems. Not ordinary proc's. If proc's don't scale with player power they are useless. That is why everyone would rather have pretty much any effect on their gear then the completely awful and terrible proc's we have now. You might as well be putting in a full unadorn for everyone in this GU, because these adorns are now as useless as all the damage proc's you have in game.

    Congratulations on making something else completely useless, and while doing it having a large impact on tank survivability in raiding. Nice to see tank survivability continue to go down in this GU, especially in a means that is just going to lead to more spike damage that people can't deal with. I love seeing tanks go from full to dead in under a second with full wards on them and the wards still being up.

    Heh. I remember posting specifically about this a long time ago. AAs with "fixed" values just diminish in contribution as gear and stat inflation go up. It is a flawed system to begin with, and AAs should retain the same relevance at any point on the gear/stat "progression curve".

    I had also made the arguement for scaling modifiers - and it is possible to do, because we have seen them with the new prestige (e.g. Improves their base damage before modifications by x%). I don't know why we can't see more of this instead of the typical fixed values.

    It's dumb and lazy. CB doesn't scale at all. A lot of these abilities it is going to be less than 1% actual increase. Give me unique effects. Additional effect added to the ability, extra dot ticks, extra triggers, chance to reset abilities, anything. Something useful that doesn't become useless due to gear.

    increases damage by x% before modifications, so they're how they were intended to be when first implemented!

    I do respect Lyndro though. It's overdue that devs back each other up on the forums, even if they do make a shitty decision. The management there right now just doesn't do this. Based on the mitigation stuff Lyndro will defend it in public and try to do it right behind the scenes.

    I can tell you they do must have watch list and they don't know a constructive post from a troll. Tala must be like in good with them, b/c every time I argue with him on one of his dumb OP ideas for zerkers I've been warned for trolling.
