    I remember when Chicken Little cried tanks were dead when stamina regen was removed from blocking.

    Still tanking just fine. Still going to heal just fine. Still going to dos just fine.

    How many groups even need tanks anymore? How many situations in game require someone to tank damage?

    When are we gonna get loot improvements for Maelstrom Arena? Maelstrom weapons drop waaay more frequently than jewelry, especially considering the jewelry drops are further muddled by armor drops. Could we get improved jewelry drops in stages 7, 8 and 9? (Like 50% jewelry 50% armor for 7 and 8, 50% weapon 50% jewelry from 9.) Basically ANY improvement would be welcome here.

    Lets not get into the fact that Maelstrom items are easy to get in bulk from the weekly rewards too. It feels like they should be rarer than the rest of the loot, but are definitely not.

    Well... it is speculative what I outline below... but it could be part of some major rebalancing announced by Wrobel.

    The current meta is builds that can do high DPS AND self HPS from almost the same build set up.
    Especially because of stacking attributes in one stat and the scaling from the stat !
    In the last ESO live Wrobel announced that he had some thoughts to diminish this DPS meta.
    And for sure he has to nerf self heals down as well when DPS is nerfed.

    For PVP a basically a wash.

    But for PVE it will mean that our builds get weaker....
    Or the other way around: our content will get harder
    and as a consequence tankiness will be more needed

    "I still do not understand why I followed the advice of Captain Rana to bring the villagers of Bleakrock into safety. We should have fought for our village and not have backed down, with our tail between our legs.
    Now my home village is in shambles, the houses burning, the invaders feasting.
    I swear every day to Shor that after Molag Bal has been defeated, I will hunt down the invaders and restore peace in Bleakrock and drink my mead with my friends at the market place".

    We'll see, but this is a rather consistent path zos has laid out and they haven't put any effort forward in changing from it except for that acknowledgement on the show.

    Thank you for the fix to Elemental Expert. Can we look forward to a fix to Thaumathurge as well? In PTS 2.3.3 it is still being applied to the tooltip of non-DoTs but it does not affect actual combat damage.

    [*]Fasalla’s Guile: This item set no longer procs its healing debuff from single-target damage over time effects. Area damage over time effects from abilities such as Caltrops will still trigger the effect.

    Mind making that change to Siphoning Attacks again so I can actually play my Nightblade as something other than caster spec?

    Or make Leeching actually useful for tanking and resource management.

    Empowering Chains (Fiery Grip morph): Fixed an issue where this morph would not pull you to your target if they blocked or absorbed the damage.

    I hope this also includes dodging. A gap closer that does not close the gap when the target dodge rolls is useless.

    Seems unlikely, given that teleport strike is now undodgeable. Dodgeable gap closers are a design feature (and rightly so - you still close the gap but you just don't do dmg).

    I don't want chains undodgeable, i want them to close the gap even when dodged, same way every other gap closer works.

    If you use crit rush on someone who dodge rolls, he will avoid the damage, but you will still be moved to his position. With chains, if he dodges, you remain standing where you are.

    We've made improvements to Toppling Charge so it should be a lot better than it was, but there are still a couple small outstanding issues we need to address with it.

    Broken as usual!

    What's amazing is that ZOS do not seem to have done any bug-testing. A quick 5 minute test would have shown you the issue was not fixed.

    Who is doing testing, 'cause they sure are failing!

    @ZOS_GinaBruno , while you removed the path to last boss out of the map in Maw of Lorkhaj, have you fixed the or improved the pts server? It is just very annoying with the crashes you have while fighting the bosses or mob pack. Especially the mob pack after the second boss that are shut behind the gate, so when you crash from the server there is "NO" way coming back until the group is wiped or you complete it. A lot of the times there isn't just one crash but multiple. I find such things really frustrating and annoying if you want to improve on the last boss and try to test it properly.

    wiping a lot because of those crashes or restarting over and over... just takes too much time we didn't really have to waste...

    anyway hope servers are stable with this patch.

      • This quest is now available immediately after completing "Partners in Crime."
    Does this affect any of the other quests' requirements? Or are they still each tied to successive Guild ranks? Does this mean that there is no quest unlocked at Guild Rank 2 any more?
    You'll get Guild Rank 2 after you complete Partners in Crime, which then unlocks Cleaning House.

    Still see that theirs no changes to make Meteor reflectable again.

    Times running out ZOS.
    We stated last week (and a couple weeks ago) that we have no plans to make Meteor reflectable again



    This pleases SirDopey....

    • The Shadow Slayer achievement will no longer award credit to all group members in the Trial; instead, it will just award credit to the player character that lands the killing blow on a Void Caller, as originally intended.

    Well this is like giving the middle finger to tanks and healers so please change this not everything revolves around the dps you know.

    The intent behind this achievement is to encourage a broader range of players venturing into the Dark Behind the World to earn credit. We realize that tanks and healers will find this achievement a bit more challenging with the recent change, but we want this achievement to require a fair bit of coordination, communication, and teamwork. It will be tougher, yes, but not impossible. We can definitely take a look at the achievement and how it is completed.

    Is there any work being done on the 64-bit client for Win 7 and SLI? Still not working properly. The 32-bit client balances well but the 64-bit client isn't balancing properly. On the 32 my cards are evenly balanced but the 64 runs card 1 like mad and card 2 is only running at 3%. This is causing card 1 to hit temps of 78 or higher. My cards balanced, never go over 68 degrees. I have changed every SLI setting there is and set up an NVIDIA profile as well to force the settings and still it doesn't work.

    Bow
    Hawk Eye: This passive ability has been redesigned, and no longer increases the damage of your Bow abilities against off-balance enemies. It now increases the damage of your Bow abilities by 2/5% for 4 seconds after each successful Light or Heavy Attack, stacking up to 3 times.

    Great change however...... heavy attacks need to have a seperate duration increase since it takes much longer to draw an arrow. It would be in your best interest to just spam light attacks instead of heavy.

    Suggestion: 4 seconds per light attack , 6-8 seconds per heavy attack

    Not like it matters anyway since im spamming shield breaker light attacks xD thanks for the buff.
