This update will address various bugs and drop rate issues. More detailed notes of the update will be posted soon.


I have a concern - for those actually in the raid who've collected dark ether and part of the other items, will they now need to collect unstable ether?

1 second precast timer for sw only real crowd control AND reduction of it's effectiveness coupled with the general reduction of hastes effectiveness makes what was admittedly an overpowered ability now mostly useless.

It is far from useless but now it and seismic slash can't be used to defeat everything thrown at u. 1 sec goes by pretty fast but u may take some hits before time which does cause a need to actually use health potions. The other effects may need tweaking in both abilities but the 1 sec before use is a good thing for balance and gameplay imo.

Just hope they introduce it to time void too for the same reason.
