    very nice list! (yay for dealing with unstackable seeds, i have wayyy too many of those still)

    this made me laugh: Gaman no longer sound like songbirds - never did quite understand why they did that (thought it was some kinda joke by the devs of SE or something hehe)

    Meh.

    The bugfixes for the EC are weak, not exactly what we were hoping for based on what was said in December.

    The earthquake, ghosting, and invisible item (never ran into this myself) fixes will be nice, but the rest.. eh.

    With a list of 100+ bugs in the EC Forum to choose from, they did so poorly.

    Imbuing is not the only skill associated with Mysticism now. Players can use EITHER their Focus skill or Imbuing skill. Evaluate Intelligence no longer has any effect on a Mystic’s spell power

    so this means ? a mystic no longer has to have imbuing and can have focus instead? giving mana and hp regen to boot? and there is no need for eval (or is there a replacement?) or is focus also the new eval?
    if so this will free up a skill slot and give me a mana boost and hp regen boost?
    and i though my gargoyle was fun before holy stuff batman !!

    or does eval still effect things like colossus?

    The last time I came to look at something for me to love I lost a tongue!
    I don't think so!
    I'm not falling for it this time!

    Now If its Sakkarah telling me to then I will because, she is the arch nemesis of the Evil and Vile Mesanna.

    Yup Myst is now a stand alone skill that fits very easily into the mages template making them even stronger...........

  21. UOKaiser

    UOKaiser Guest

    Yep looks like a nerf. It says it removes evaluate inteligence to help those spells for myst but doesn't say anything about increasing the strengh of those spells to compasate for the loss of the boost. Do we have only pvp dev these days? Come on please fix that. I think we gotten enough of a beating.

    I guess there is no reason to be Human anymore on a Dexxer, Why not just take the JOAT away completely. This is going to screw a lot of dexxer PVPers up.
     
  24. The Mysticism changes sound like a bad thing to me. Mysticism isn't good enough to play without Magery and Focus isn't good enough to use instead of Med. So the result seems to be we would now need another 120 pts.

    The insurance menu is not an improvement for me, flicking through pages is slow compared to what we have/had, and there were already numerous ways to see how much gold you have in your bank, like carrying a house placement tool which are blessed anyway. The cost changes aren't something I care either way on.

    Before we all start yelling nerf and blaming it on pvp lets do some testing i am still patching so i cant yet!
    but if they did take away eval bonus all around without replacing then i agree!

    Old system: Mysticism + Eval + Imbuing
    New system: Mysticism + Focus

    It now takes 120 fewer skill points.
    ...so what's the problem?

    It'll be better as it's own skill, but will be harder to half-crossover (only for mages) to.

    Because focus blows...

    ... because the strength of JoaT doesn't really lie in special move mana reduction anyway.

    It's a better complimentary skill than Spirit Speak.
    Or Eval for that matter.

    Did they fix the multitude of bugs with the insurance changes with this or not?

    The two I found were fixed, I will have to test them again though.

    What, and deprive you of the thrill of finding it out for yourself? :p
     
  38. No, the old system mainly only needed Eval, so hybrids worked. Imbuing was pretty much only for Colossus & Spell Trigger entitlement (which still needed Eval for the stored spell)

    As I already said the skill isn't good enough on its own, so you still need to be a hybrid, only now you need 120 Focus as well.

    Since my previous post, I've actually got in, and the old insurance toggle is still there so that can be ignored.

    However it looks like they made a mess of the tool tips for Mysticism some still say Eval some say Focus.

    So you just spout crap off and have nothing to back it up, yet it screws all melee chars. But mages and and every other template can benifit from it.

    On a char I've had there for months he got nothing either.

    *shrugs* hard to speculate. Some people will find it useful, others wont. I like how it's no longer tied to Eval which pretty much discluded any non-mages from using it.

    ... are you evaluating Mysticism from a template that utilizes Eval/Myst/Imbuing or just Eval/Myst?

    Rising Colossus is a very major spell for Mysticism, and Spell Trigger is also potentially very useful. Also affects Stone Form, which probably wont be widely used anyway, but may have niche purposes, and Enchant Weapon I believe was also effected by Imbuing.

    No gifts for me either. Just a bunch of racist swearing in the chat. Maybe they were helping us test the new chat ignore feature? :)

    actually would this not make it harder for mages and easier for fighter types to include myst?
     
  47. This is by far the BEST fix in this list!!!!!!!!!

    When I logged into the TC1 after patching it tells me the current publish on Test center is Pub 62.3. Noticed that the docks on the SW part of town where the teleporter used to be is now gone as well as all plants, rocks, and rubble (tram and fel).

    Can you put the new items from Navrey and medusa and what not in the bank box or are they already there. It would be kind of nice to test them to see if they too powerful or not.

    Idk about everyone else but there is a small annoyance in the EC with this chat thing. I type something in guild or alliance chat and then go to type something else and it says "spam detected, speech queued for 0 seconds" and it took at least 10 minutes for my message to go through. I can type just fine in party chat though. Is someone else having this problem?
