    Footman’s Fortune: Reduced the amount of block mitigation provided by this item set to 8%, down from 12%.

    I smell incoming despair on the forums.
    Robust Constitution: This passive ability has been renamed to “Nimble.” Also, it no longer increases your Health Recovery by 6/13/20%. It now increases your Max Stamina by 2/4/6% and continues to increase your Stamina Recovery by 3/6/10%.

    Alright, so 6% max stam + 8% weapon crit vs 12% max stam.

    So you want literally 100% of competitive stam builds in PvE to be khajiits?

    Not a fan of khajiit no longer having health regen as one of their passives, they are AD's more durable race but now they have 2 stamina dps races. Will see how this plays out, but overall, meh.

    totaly agree I like my khajiit as it is I dont need that 6% more stam -_-

    Undaunted Chests Improvements
    We've improved the rewards from the Undaunted chests! Now, the items you obtain from these chests will always scale all the way up to your current level and Champion Rank. We've also increased the availability of Monster Set Shoulder items in these chests: You will always find a Monster Set Shoulder piece in the Gold chest, often in the Silver chest, and occasionally in the Bronze chest.

    How is this different than how it is on live currently? Isn't it 100% for gold keys on live, 50% for silver, and 25%? for Bronze?

    Yet more proof that people who do not play this game do not understand the implications of the changes they make. Enjoy the racial balancing firestorm incoming. So many "smack head" moments reading these patch notes - which don't even add much to the game - and the damage these thoughtless changes do to all our hard work is hard to overstate.

    You've wasted your time posting in this thread 3-4 times already, the reason no sorc changes were made is because the vast majority of players aren't seeing the issues you are, since they've taken time to learn and adapt. L2P issue

    You buffed the strongest stamina class in the game, in Khajits. Why did you think this was a good idea? The only reason behind this buff is to force people to change to khajit and make money. Give us another option for stamina. What the hell?

    Honestly, I was hoping for a nerf to racial passives where choosing one race over the other was more of flavor than choosing for min/max. For example, 10% more magicka for breton and high-elf is huge for magicka builds. No point in choosing any other race. However, if it was only 5% it would not be as ground breaking making even a Khajjit caster not feel under-powered because Khajjit was chosen for RP purposes and not having the most dps.

    My god, Pets need buffs not nerfs ! Necropotence is the only set that helps them

    I have calculated everything and Necropotence must AT LEAST grant 2775 Magicka to make it at least equal to what it is right now.
    Nice that I probably have to wait 2 weeks until I can see the change, because guild stores don't work on pts and I will not be able to see the set.

    2775? It granted me like 5k when active. >.<

    You don't see what I am up to :) Necropotence grants exactly 3711 Magicka.
    Updating the set from V12 to V16 will increase the magicka from 2,3,4 trait and enchant by a total of 936
    So actually, we would win 936 Magicka if they would not nerf it.

    Now where this set has a flat value, that value must be at least 2775 Magicka to make it equal to what it used to be, considering the gain from V16 enchants etc

    EDIT: Just for clarification, I am refering to the 5 piece set bonus when I speak about 3711 Magicka

    Oh, I see what you mean now. That does make sense. Good catch. :)

    Wait, what? A 9% decrease in healing received means that your build is ruined?

    Care to elaborate, because I'm not seeing how this is horrible... it's not great, but magicka!

    On racials:
    • Argonians' 12% increase to healing done is pretty insane. I get a feeling that you guys were trying to make racials more of a flavor thing and less relevant to your character's performance in endgame stuff like dungeons and PVP, and this change goes against that idea completely. Why would I play a healer of any other race when an Argonian's heals would be 12% stronger?
    • Bretons' increase to AP also doesn't feel cool. Granted, 1% is nothing, but I still strongly dislike the concept of somebody beating somebody else on the leaderboards just because of the race they chose.
    • I get a feeling you guys are trying to cull health regen builds from the game.

    I know this is rather nitpicky, but...

    When you think "Opportunist", you think of things like wealth and gold. Not prestige and standing (AP).

    When you think "Diplomat", you think prestige and standing (AP). Not wealth and gold.

    Breton's Opportunist should provide a 1% gold gain, and Imperial's Diplomat should provide a 1% AP gain. It fits better with the words, with TES lore, and it makes sense that Imperials should have a (tiny) advantage in their own home province whereas the merchant-class Bretons should be the ones getting the (tiny) gold bonus.

    It's actually kinda crappy for all Argonians that aren't healers... IMHO, this change just pigeonholes Argonians into healers and makes the racial passives WORSE for every other role.

    Redguard remains #1 choice for stamina PvP

    Dunmer/Altmer remains #1 choice for Magicka DPS PvE
    Argonian takes the #1 from Breton for healer PvE

    Wrobel, you better look in to this!
    There are errors in your changes to racial passives.

    Imperials are romans and they value honour and courage more than wealth, hence the ceasers have to continously prove that to his people or he will be ditched by the people and the senate.

    Redguard remains #1 choice for stamina PvP

    Dunmer/Altmer remains #1 choice for Magicka DPS PvE
    Argonian takes the #1 from Breton for healer PvE

    And Imperial still > Nord when it comes to tanking.


    So much about the promised diversity, eh!?

    I'm forced to roll Khajit for competitive pve dps and reroll my breton healer to argonian....

    I don't like the freaking tails, but i refuse to play gimp races.

    So I guess I'll stick to my dunmer magplar and magblade and just DPS through the whole content, because *** this.

    Yeah well ty but how about the people who decide to do a "shadowscale" argonian/Nightblade toon?

    I don't want a healer i want a killer...

    Yep, still no lore-friendly sneaky Argonians ~.~

    Also that +5% chance of pickpocketing for Khajiit and 10% less fall damage for Bosmer... I think it could be the other way round. Thieving is a negative Khajiiti stereotype, but it is a cultural aspect of the Bosmer (Right of Theft). Also I thought cats were the ones who always landed on their feet? Heheh. It will still be fun to jump around with my Bosmer and hopefully not die as much.

    And I would really like if the "Ashlander" passive was named something else. We House Dunmer wouldn't want to be associated with... them.

    All in all, my main character was consolidated as my XP grinder, my Breton Magicka NB as my PvP character (one day), my Imperial Priest (Magicka Templar healer) is making more money (LOL), my Bosmer is going to be jumping around a lot and the rest of my characters are not too affected by the changes.

    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.
