Server Maintenance - July 24, 2013

Postby Darkhorse » Tue Jul 23, 2013 1:30 pm

Heroes! We will have a server maintenance on Wednesday 7/24 at 11am EDT/3pm GMT. This maintenance is expected to last only 15 minutes. There will be a downloadable content update after the downtime. Here are the changes:

-Resolved an issue in the equip screen which is causing the stats popup to scroll
-Resolved an issue where one handed and two handed abilities and their respective enchants are not giving the proper benefits to players
-Changed the text on the one time purchase of secondary spec to make it more clear
-Changes the text on the "filter" option in raid finder to make it more clear
-Icy Grasp's cast time is now back to what it was prior to 1.7 (50%/40%/30% weapon speed)
-The knockback on Ice Lance is now back to what it was prior to 1.7 (0.5s)
-Ensnare's cast time is now back to what it was prior to 1.7 (0.5s/0.5s/0.5s)
-Fixed an issue that would cause PvP fights to end in a desync
-Leveling up should now refresh your resolve properly

Please note: The "Unknown Hero" will not be making an appearance, so please plan your raids accordingly for the downtime

Thanks, Venan, for listening to some of what your players are saying.

But a change to abilities 2 days after a change to abilities, ESPECIALLY one that reverts to a previous set up, is an admission that you messed up the abilities, badly.

That's great, but when one messes up, one also compensates the ... well, victims ... for their expenses due to your mess up. You may think that the Respec token for completing step 1 of the PvP quest chain is sufficient payment for messing with abilities -- and it was, the FIRST time. But now it's a second time. And we need some more NO CHARGE, NO QUESTING just "sorry, here ya go" Respec tokens. 2 will do. Thanks! :)

I'm still unsure what the results of this may be. Sure wm's had a tougher learning curve, but even one day in, now that a couple have started optimizing, they're doing as well, if not better than the rest. I'm almost inclined to believe inital balance was fine, with the exception of maybe boosting ice lance's knockback. Tomorrow might be the hayday of mages ;) But we'll find out for sure ;)

From our initial data, WM definitely have a lower win percentage with both 2H and 1H+Shield. We think reverting some of the changes we made will make the WM a little more competitive. However, this won't change that WM might require some out of the box thinking still.

But a good deal of that may have been due to the reasons mith mentioned. Warmages need to do a complete overhaul of their skills and abilities to be competitive, while justis less so, and swers very little, leading to the skewed data. But as people optimize, I'm finding battles becoming a lot closer. I went 49-0 yesterday. 17-6 today. And with every few hours, people are getting used to it.

Update:

We found an issue that was causing PvP fights to end in a desync. This should be resolved with tomorrow's update.

I agree and think that Venan should supply a few Respec tokens as an apology.

The description of the Ice Lance in battle still states the knock back time of .25 sec, but it does add .5 secs when used.

Sorry about that, we missed that tool tip. The full description of the ability got updated properly, but not the in-combat tool tip. This will be fixed in the next update.
