PTS Patch Notes v3.0.0

    There are rly some good changes:

    -like permablock nerfs
    -cost increase poisons
    -skelle trollking nerfs(selene might want another)
    -redguard nerf
    etc

    so i rly see some serious issues on mag sorcs and maybe even mag nbs:

    - stam chars get far more nerfs
    - indirect shield buffs through CP changes making them ALOT stronger

    i rly dont like the tank meta, so i dont think stam dks or stamplars where stronger tanks than stamblades or stamsorcs at all(Im still a medium armor stamblade), the only nerf i felt like required was that leap doesnt break roll.(never thought i defend stamplar stam dk someday )

    so the right way would have been to adress the insane amount of spells going through roll and a medium armor buff and a nerf of the heavy armor hp bonus:

    leap, jabs, soulassault(my necroblade can insta kill most medium armor chars in one soulassault), beam, curse, mines, temp ult, dbos and so on...

    so magicka sorcs are currently best in slot/or near it in almost every aspect in the game:

    -PvE dps(Im no expert on this, but i heard they are and my 3 divines sorc pulls 30-35kdps on bosses)
    - 1vX gameplay
    - duels(especially if pet sorc)
    - and magicka is grouplay anyway better

    One last question where is with the bonepirate nerf the medium armor equivalent of sets like:
    necropotence(should give spelldmg not magicka)
    lich
    amberplasm
    seventh legion
    burning spellweave
    ravager


    so ill just go on my mag sorc or mag nb and soulassault medium armor players...
    or take a lightning resto shieldbreaker on stamblade(huehue)

    Can I say that the dragonknight changes to battelroar and helping hands, is not right because you are taking away what a dragonknight benefits from, max stats, and changing it to base off you level is a huge nerf to any experienced dragonknight both magic or stamina based classes. I disagree with this nerf because this is what make the dragonknight unique and different than other classes when it comes to sustain. I get you are trying to have more recovery based gameplay, but on a dragonknight it is possible for you to run 2500 stamina recovery and have a decent max stamina pool to turn a tide of a fight when out numbered especially in group play. I am really disappointed with this change.

    "Fixed an issue where abilities and bonuses that allow you to ignore the Movement Speed penalty from sneak would stack, causing you to sneak at extremely high speeds."

    Ouch. So sad. So sad.

    This might have been a bug, but allowed for, by far, the most fun toon to play in both PVP and overland PVE I had a chance to play in my 4000+ hours.

    changes look pretty interesting imho.
    that said, i think among all the other nerfs amberplasm, heavy attack stamina return and lich (warlock to some extend) may been been overlooked and are strangely strong now.

    i don't know yet if there are also changes to resource DRAINing poisons (especially with damage resource poisons nerfed). if they adjusted both kinds, okay. otherwise the draining ones may have become the new opthing

    i'm really curious w.r.t how new pve builds will look. i expect HUGE changes. no idea what may be top digs. especially current petsorcs are very hungry on magicka. let's see, inb4 raids full of stamblades xDDD

    'nough speculation, time to test though

    New meta incoming. Overall, I'm very satisfied about the incoming changes. I need to test it by myself.
    As a sorcerer or a warden, it may become possible to really compete with templar as healer.
    These changes will favor the skill and lessen the gap beetwen high CP and low CP players, much needed for the battlegrounds.
    Oddly enough, the most exciting change for me is the Inversed Kinematic introduction xD

    I realize this update is tough to swallow for a lot, i play dk and nb and im excited to see how it works. Im sure things will change before live, but this feels like a huge reset that was needed. Could it be better? Sure, but thats what PTS is for.

    Just remeber thay everyone is getting the ceiling lowered on them.

    Im scared to face an eclipse though lol.

    Evry Class were able to heal, if you werent able take a look on the skillbars and maybe try some stuff out.
    Some classes have benefits which others class have not..
    Making evry class the same isnt balancing..
    Its just sh**

    Evry time i hear such stuff, usually i see the thread in the forum where people complain about why does a Dk refelct overload, remove that broken ***... (wings)
    Im so done with that casual community which isnt even able to think about their own Setup.
    Worst thing is Azura Eu, so many kids which stack Dmg and running out of ressources after 2 dizzing swings or 3-4 bol, and after you wrecked them they are insulting you, flaming you or even saying you are a cheater cause you are smart to use unique Setups for a class which are working.
    But i guess playing Oneshoot Nb and then complaiming about Heals on a Dk or Templar ,,,
    Ofc pls

    Is igneous still a skill? Borderline stupid right now. Just take away major mending at this point. Oh boy gonna cast my 3k shield so I can heal more! Oh someone light attacked me now my shields gone. It was up for about less than a second. And i gkt no buff to my healing! Can't wait for this patch to go live, game seems so much better now. Not being sarcastic either, I can't wait to log in and use my useless skills with my useless passive and have some fun!! Good think I preordered the new expansion so I can play this very balanced game with the new balanced class that's totally not gonna be broken and not the only playable class left. Cant wait to manage resources, Regen, dmg, and mitigation all at once while constantly having something rammed into my booty by 20+ people. Love the game. 10/10 positive steam reviews.

    Honestly, I'm very sad to see all these nerfs, I and others have originally bought this game as some said to play the way I or you would want to play. I personally feel as if I am being forced to play a certain way that I am not at all comfortable with. I for one have put countless (and I mean countless) hours into farming and grinding those champion points in cracked wood cave thinking and looking at the road ahead that having and utilizing those bonuses would be great. Now I feel that Zenimax has taken all the work and effort I put in and just hit delete on me. I really hope something changes during the pre-patch testing.

    You know how the last test on Pts ended?
    People reported Bugs/Exploits or even Wrongs Stats not working abillities.
    And they just bring all thoses fails on the Live-Server.
    I actually dont know any Patch since IC-p without any Bugs.
    Mostly the Bug where for several weeks on live even month, so dont worry. Later you will get banned cause you abused those Bugs which wasnt fixed, directly.
