    Sounds like a lot of work for something that players can do in literally 5 seconds... .rpg act spellnamehere

    [Feedback] Forums vs. Discord

    Discord is more convenient and frequented but has pants on head moderation and people won't rifle through trash to see what the server is about. The forum should have details on storylines and screenshots from events. Stuff that pops out and makes people wanna stick around and see the server. If all they see is threads from 2 months ago... good luck with that.

    Battle Cry, Burgeoning Rage, Attack Order, Purge, Cripple, Boomerang Toss do not require Willpower and are great buffs. Focused Burn is below FullAttack in average damage despite costing 1 skill shot. Molten Blast is below Basic Attack despite costing 1 skill slot and 1 more energy. The system is balanced assuming you have 8 in your stats. Unless they use melee weapons for phys damage, no they can't. This is Heroic Uldir. You can clearly see Affli Locks competing with phys DPS. The reason other casters are behind is that Uldir fights require lots of mobility, but Blizz has no mentality that ranged DPS should be worse. Also BM Hunters are ranged, too. Not like their pets die from AoE.

    Mate, here's some simple math. Physical buffs-- Burgeoning Rage ( +5% every turn ), Battle Cry ( 25% dmg ), Attack Order ( 14% damage ), Ogre Attune ( +0.3 Will as STR ) Magic-- Amplify Magic ( 15% dmg ), Sorc Attune ( + 0.3 Will as Will ) That's it. Rager/Master can be applied by/to the physical DPS as well. Moot point. Now, Obliterate is 165% weapon damage and always crits. A basic attack with 8 STR Barb Sword is off my memory, 126 damage. A Molten Blast at 8 Willpower is on average 109 damage. You see the issue? Phys DPS is far, far ahead of magic damage. Both in raw numbers, scaling and in buffs. Why would I cast Rager on a Mage to boost his 100 damage to 140 when I can use it on a warrior and boost his 126 ( +Bcry, Atk Order, etc. ) Like Phys DPS doesn't have utility, lol. Cripple, Purge, Attack Order, Battlecry, Sunder armor/Pierce, Shove. Cease this meme right now. No one stops a Warrior from using Purge. Hell, it's a melee spell. If anything they use it more. No one stops you from using Willpower based buffs, either. Not the point, though. Magic DPS should not be so much weaker. Yeah, citation fucking needed. Right now Warriors, Rogues, Hunters and Demon Hunters are killing the meters. That's unlikely. Molten is 775%, Pyro is 900% ( and crits ). You just had really bad RNG.

    That's when Blizz was shit at balance. And in just about any RPG it's the mages that are truly strong lategame due to a myriad of spells they can get. Here, after 4 months, I have 7.

    Lol, why does Blizzard balance PvE then? Just let Warriors do 90000 DPS. What kind of argument is that? It doesn't respect class fantasy and roleplay for mages to hit like wet noodles. And yes, Battle Cry might not be that good in 1v1 but in big fights it's very well worth it.

    Rogues are top 3 physical DPS in the game with a proper build, you just haven't found it yet. Haytham does more DPS than me at half the XP. Killing Spree is the strongest one-turn nuke in the game. Priests are fine-ish, the issue is that Greater Heal is weaker than Holy Shock on average despite taking 2 turns to use ( nonsensical shit that I pointed out to Mers but he hates Priests ). The bad part is that Unholy/Shadow characters have no nuke to use. Shadow Blast is absolute dogshit, since it's a DoT that can be dispelled/MR'd/won't kill the target since it takes 2 turns to do damage. Also the Fatigue System makes Devouring Plague/Siphon/selfheal builds trash. Mages have Pyroblast, which is the strongest caster Nuke. It should be stronger and everyone else should have access to a similar spell that does less damage than Pyro. Obliterate not being DK only but Pyro being Mage only is sheer madness and puts phys DPS ahead of casters even more. Another thing I said to Mers that he ignored. Hunters are amazing. Vincent was the strongest character on the server at the time of his departure. You just need to find the proper build. There's a Caveat ( hue ) in that you kinda need Crippling Shot/Point Blank Shot or a spear the more HP people get. Also Twin Snipe. Yes, you can't do full DPS in melee, nor should you be able to. Twin Snipe is incredibly strong with the proper build and set up and you have tools like Frost Trap at your disposal. Also you could just go melee Hunter and melt faces with Beastial Wrath. Druids are AMAZING. Moonkin form gives them +7% crit +5% damage reduction, which makes them the best healers and caster DPS. Cat form is also literally the strongest DPS in the game.

    It is unacceptable that XP is hidden from players when it was once public. There's no reason to hide it unless people are getting XP added by GMs that they shouldn't have. The staff has been VERY defensive about this and gave crappy reasons for it which to me is suspicious. Moderation is a joke. Worst I've ever seen on any server, and I played on Project Chaos where a feminist was admin. Varen has banned over 4 people for shit reasons. Those people talk. They spread their negative opinions around and soon enough half the people I knew from Legacy don't want to play here. Furthermore, I have been muted for 2 weeks for saying '' fuck off '' to a person that was in the guild of the person who muted me. Bias and stupidity. I wouldn't have been muted for ''fuck off'' on any server worth a damn. Furthermore, I have never had a positive interaction with Nostra. I really don't understand why he's Council, every issue I've reported has been met with some passive aggressive sarcastic retort like " Well I'm sorry you think so " when reporting legitimate issues. I've once waited hours for him to DM a 15 minute encounter and a few weeks ago he literally told me I can't use an IC artifact I have in my bags because " It would be impossible to transfer " even though I had it. I really don't see what his role here is, he seems far more preoccupied playing Oswald. At least Varen programs and Mers/Vrahn do the RPG system, Vehk just seems to be dead weight. Oh, he also made my mute permanent for ''past transgressions'' even though I have received no warning about those. So basically he's useless and biased, too. I hear he pays the bills but as seen with Wake/Dunril that's a very poor reason to give someone power. RPG system It's balanced by someone ( let's not kid ourselves, Mers has veto over everything, he outright deleted suggestions without any explanation ) that apparently hates ranged classes and offensive magic. Not only is it pretty much impossible to have a competitive caster build that makes IC sense ( what are you going to damage with as a Priest, Divine Sheer? ), but he has this philosophy that melee should do more damage than casters. No one would play mages on Retail if melee DPS were better. Furthermore, the existence of spells like Battle Cry, Obliterate, Burgeoning Rage puts Phys DPS far ahead of Caster DPS, that have no such tools. You see Mages buff people instead of casting Fireballs, because buffing melees is better than doing magic damage since magic damage sucks. It's unfun, it doesn't respect class fantasy, it makes me not want to play. Furthermore, physical DPS classes get QuickAttack/BasicAttack/FullAttack all of which are actually better than the magic equivalents ( Basic > Molten, Full > Focused Burn ) despite not costing any ability slots. The result is a meta in which a Warrior at 4 willpower eventually ends up with more utility than a Caster, since the Caster has to spend points on damage abilities the Warrior gets by default. Fatigue system The new Fatigue is bonkers trash and I have told Vrahn several times that it breaks the game. You get fatigue when you take damage, a LOT of it, and it reduces your damage/healing. This automatically makes DoT builds horrible since the one that bursts you not only does direct damage but he also stacks Fatigue on you, making you deal less damage and healing. The even WORSE part is that builds that self heal like Shadow Priest are damaged by this even more, since not only do they cause less fatigue damage ( because of DoTs and there being no good Unholy nuke ) but the fatigue also makes them damage and HEAL less, making spells like Siphon and Dplague twice as bad as direct damage spells.

    The Balance chat/team is still a mess, 2 months after the thing started. We have about a meeting a month during which Mers tells us why he's right and we're wrong, then he nerfs casters a bit more. There have been no buffs towards caster damage after their ranged advantage went to piss ( HP was doubled ), there are no spells planned to make up for the innate advantage of 3 spells melees have ( Quick/Basic Attack/Fullattack ), which allows a melee with 4 willpower to have as many utility spells ( Purge, Scorned, Battlecry and so on ) as an actual caster. Playing a caster is already miserable due to melee DPS doing 50% more damage, but to see casters nerfed 3 patches in a row is laughable.
  13. No XP grinding please and thank you, they did it on Legacy and it was abused to no end. Fatigue needs to take a huge hit to the amount you get from damage and either give a lot more when you get incapped or give little over 50% hp and a lot under 25%.

    Sotoras needs to be accessible again... it's not unknown shoreS if you can only RP on 2 isles, out of which you'll get kicked out of one by elves. As for plots I want to see more stuff like Wolfram. There aren't really random, believable characters out in the world. Some wizard that's doing X thing, this explorer, that hunter, apart from I'kuylan it feels like no NPC is important.
  15. I would like fatigue gain to be tied to HP. <75% minimal <50% moderate <25% high That way self heal builds aren't utter trash and you can use DoTs more freely, since burst loses its ridiculous power. Also recovery needs to be sped up a lot.
