Was removing Level 6 Arcane Focus Intentional?

    You can no longer get a level 6 Arcane Focus in the Prism of Light. Was this intentional? If it is, why isn't it in the patch notes?

    Have you tried the Prism Circle with 6 people yet?

    Doesnt needing 6 people in the Prism kind of negate the benefits of it? After all, its already 5x 10K to do it in the first place. Now there is no reason to go to the Prism ...

    Apparently their "fix" to make you unable to cast Arcane Circle by yourself was to reduce the Arcane Focus level by 1 for ALL cases. So now if you cast Arcane Circle with four other spell weavers OUTSIDE of Prism, you only get a level 4 focus (and Prism gives you +1 to bump that up to Level 5)

    The last I heard, the Prism was the only place where you could get level 6.

    If I'm understanding this right? That means you can still get to 6, it just means you'll need 6 people, instead of 5.

    I'm not saying I like this change; I don't.

    But it's not the same thing as there being no level 6 at all, which is what people are concluding for some reason.

    If you try for a Level 6 in the Prism, and you can't get one with 6 people, then we'll know.

    Didn't anyone test this fix? Sheesh. Yeah it is true, you can only get a level 4 normally now.

    If I am understanding this right, you aren't quite correct.

    Formula was:

    Level of Focus = Number of people on the circle (+1 if you're in the Prism) (maximum of 5, or max of 6 if you're in the Prism).​

    But now I think it is:

    Level of Focus = Number of people on the circle -1 (with a max of 5).​

    Unless you're in the prism, in which case it is:

    Level of Focus = Number of people on the circle (with no penalty) (with a max of 6).​

    If I am right, you can get a Level 6 Focus, you will just need 6 people and will need to be in the Prism.

    And to get a level 5, outside of the Prism, you'll also need 6 people.

    Someone needs to confirm this by trying to get 6 people in the Prism to get a Level 6 Focus.

    If they still end up with a level 5, then we'll know that Level 5 is the new high, and I am wrong.

    We tested this with six people in both cases. Highest is 4 on normal altar and 5 in Prism of Light.

    And there you go.

    That feels not intentional somehow....But we'll see how they respond.

    Did anyone notice this on Origin?

    I agree... it sounds like a bug for sure.

    iam also not understanding this why the debuffed spellweaving? and another thing i have noticed is that the curse is fixed, but the icon isnt shown in buff/debuff window, so it is like it was before, good work devs ;) *S*

    Utterly stupid. And worse is the silence from the folks at the top.

    I have it on my tamer too. Nyraxle FTW.

    Spellweave was built for taming I thought.
