    @ZOS_RichLambert do you use impen in pvp? why did you nerf proc sets in pve to the ground and only marginally made them weaker on pvp?

    Yep I use impen - even with 7 impen, crits still hurt. On the PVE side, It's about a 7-8% nerf to sustain from my internal testing. (using Viper, Red Mountain and Kra on my stam sorc) I wouldn't call that nerfed into the ground.

    Maybe not nerfed to the ground, but its definitely a reason to never use any of these sets in pve in any situation, when they cannot be used for either burst or sustained dps, and aggressive warhorn, twiceborn star and minor force are the main buffs used for pve.

    2p sets are still going to be the best bang for the buck on any builds not using tbs in my opinion. Red mountain and Viper however are going to be a lot less desireable.

    Viper (who even uses this for PvE?): 2587 to 1616 dps. ---> -37.5%


    48079 to 44548 = -7.3%

    There is more to life than proc crits, and if that is all people are seeing, then I can see why it needs to be changed.

    you realize that this is exactly what we are saying? pve proc sets are not a problem. nerfing them for pve cannot be the goal ( and they are getting majorily nerfed). in pvp proc sets are a major problem. their crit is not the main issue there

    But you realize it is still affecting pve much worse?
    and no crit is not the problem when you wearing 7 impen.
    As i elaborated only gankers stack enough crit to really hurt you in 7 impen through crit.

    As before, we have to thank the YouTube PvP streamers for this PvE blow.

    It always is the same trend:
    Powerful YouTube streamers will become even more powerful (AoE+).
    Powerless players (happy with a little monster set) will get less powerful (Proc-).

    No pvp player asked for this.
    This nerf is mostly affecting pve.
    In pvp impen was reducing crit already.
    This is intended as a pve nerf it is not planned as a pvp nerf.
    tbh am agreeing with you.This is way more of a pve nerf then a PVP nerf.

    Hi All! As we near the end of 2016, I wanted to give a quick sneak peak into some of the more hotly debated topics recently and shed some light on how we plan on addressing them for Update 13. Keep in mind this isn't everything coming in the update... and definitely not any of the class balance changes - you will have to wait for the natch potes for the full list. :)

    Proc sets
    We are going to be making some changes to these sets to balance out their burst potential. When the update hits, any set that has a damage or heal proc component to it will no longer crit in PVE or PVP. We chose this direction as we like the concept of these sets and still want them to be interesting and viable, we just wanted to tone down their overall burst potential. (sustain is slightly reduced, while burst potential is significantly reduced)

    AoE cap adjustments
    First a bit of background - AoE caps are there to help keep single-target abilities effective in PvP. In addition, they allow players the chance to survive some of the larger-scale battles a bit longer. (especially newer players)
    We are going to modify the damage caps so that players take more damage. This will have an adverse effect on the newer players in Cyrodiil - and will make AoE more effective, but will help combat the balled-up “stack on crown” groups and spread players out more. The changes will be:
    • The first 6 players hit always take 100% damage
    • The next 7 to 30 players take 75% damage (for reference on live this is currently 50%)
    • The next 31 to 60 players take 50% damage (for reference on live this is currently 25%)
    • Players past 60 take 0 damage (for reference on live this is also currently 0%)
    We are starting fairly conservatively with this initial round of changes and once we have had a chance to see how they affect things in Cyrodiil on a large scale, we will evaluate further changes.

    Poison fixes / adjustments
    All poisons now share the same global cooldown and no longer have individual cooldowns. This means that when Update 13 goes live, it will no longer be possible to proc a poison more than once every 10 seconds.In addition, we’ve been able to track down and fix a separate issue where poisons could sometimes double proc.

    Stuck in combat in Cyrodiil
    This has been an ongoing issue in Cyrodiil for a long time now – due to the nature of combat in Cyrodiil there were cascading threat issues between players. (i.e. – You fight another player and all the threat they have on them is transferred to you) We’ve changed how threat is transferred between players and when Update 13 goes live, you should always drop combat properly after 6 seconds of ending a battle. Note: If you are grouped with other players and they are actively in combat, you will still be considered in combat as well.

    Charging into loadscreens in Cyrodiil
    We think we have a fix! It’s been really, really hard for us to repro this one internally, and therefore really difficult to fix. A huge thank you to everyone who has submitted locations and videos of how to repro the issue. If you get it again after Update 13, please let us know. (Provide the date/time & campaign - if you have a video of it, even better)

    PvPers want more things to spend AP on
    We've been working on ways to add more things that you can purchase with AP. With Update 13, we are updating the PVP vendors in your home keeps and adding a new item - Zone Bags. These Zone Bags contain a set item from an overland zone and will scale to your level. For example: the Auridon Zone Bag will only have Queen's Elegance, Twin Sisters and Veiled Heritance item sets in it. The bags will cost 5K AP and always contain one green or blue quality item in them.

    Again, this is just a sneak peak... not an exhaustive list. There is a lot more coming in Update 13, including a whole bunch of balance fixes. (Patch Notes aren't quite done yet, so hang in there for awhile longer)

    Enjoy your holidays and please be safe on New Years!

    NICE! Haters will keep on being potaters, keep it up! maybe look into adjusting poison effects though? It's a little overpowered if that's all you need to drop someone. Kind of the same thing with fasallas :)

    Again, PVE'ers get the shaft at the expense of trying to keep the PVP crowd happy.

    the thing is they didn't even make us happy with this change it wasn't a good change at all.No one complained about them criting we hated that they could be stacked and how much damage they deal.

    They changed nothing,procs don't crit shields and yet they burst it easily...
    The only benefit is that I will not need to run impen anymore against proctagonists who use 3 proc sets./sarcasm
