    I like the adaptation that orbs can restore the highest resource pool of either stam OR mag- this is excellent for DPS. But what about my poor tank friends??!! Before I could send shards for stam and orbs for magica, depending on their need, now they'll only ever get one- especially looking at magica intensive tanks not getting stamina back from any allied source now. (Except from the minor stam recovery buff they could get from a warden healer I guess?)

    But they are blocking : ( regen don't matter.

    I like new changes to orbs and shards but...does that not making tank with higher magicka then stamina little problematic ?

    Yes, I'm concerned about the implications of this for sword-and-shield magicka tanks (which are definitely a thing).

    Ok, so a couple small Warden changes.

    Everyone wants more reverts or changes ASAP. But I think we all need to take a step back for a second. This stuff may not be doable in a week's time. We still have 5-6 weeks? Before anything goes live. So keep on giving feedback. I've seen a wonderful NB video explaining detriments of the last notes, now we need a DK and Templar one. Preferably showing both stam and magicka pro's and con's. I wish I had that ability. I wish Deltia would set aside the kleenex box and show us Temp changes like Gilliam did with NB's. That would go much further if he really loves/loved this game. Heck, do it even if you still don't plan to play again. It'll be a nice legacy to leave behind =/

    Spear Shards: The synergy from this ability and its morphs now restores Magicka or Stamina based on whichever has the highest maximum, instead of whichever has the largest missing percentage.

    Ty!

    Imagine being a tank, you're low magicka because you're trying to sustain your stamina, but you can't get more stamina because you're low magicka as well... LOL. Same for magicka DDs, sometimes you need to roll dodge you get low on stam...

    Yeah, at first I thought this is a good change, which it kind of is, but now my Templar Tank is still unable to take advantage of my healer's shards or orbs properly. Guess it's back to the drawing board.

    At least the RNG is taken out of it now.

    No nerfs to lich set or amberplasm and no more tweaks to siphoning strikes apart from being able to crit? you bare make even in resources from this ability even if you focus on spamming light atk for far too much in combat.
    Altmer Sorceror, magicka.
    Redguard Nightblade, stamina.
    Imperial Templar, stamina
    Redguard Warden, stamina

    @ZOS_GinaBruno I'm on PS4 so I can't get on PTS, but I was wondering how the changes to critical damage from stealth affect nightblade passives, as well as the racial bonuses that bosmer and khajiit get?

    HAHAHAHA i knew they wouldn't listen. Once it goes to PTS, it's over. That's how it ships. RIP nightblade and templar.
    Or using any Set in the game that doesn't offer Sustain (i.e. Seducer's, etc.).

    I mean, seriously; what would be the point of running any other Set in the game if you aren't using the 5x bonus from a sustain Set?

    These changes are still outstandingly atrocious...

    I've been playing MMO's since they first emerged. EverQuest, Asheron's Call, Ultima Online... these are the games that got me hooked. ESO? Just a good MMORPG. It's not the best I've ever played, but it's not the worst either. I'll hit Level 40 this year, and I've been Gaming since 1985 when I got my Atari 2600 and my Commodore 64.That's 30+ years of proud Gaming history, and I have zero plans to stop until I die.

    I seriously would like to know why they added those research scrolls... Like it really is a stab in the back to us master Crafters

    Can't agree. Only master crafters (and, presumably, those who pay good money to master crafters) can get these scrolls. It's a nice reward added to the list of what master crafters can get by doing writs.

    Animal Companions
    Savage Beast: This passive ability now generates Ultimate when you cast an Animal Companion ability, instead of when you deal damage with an Animal Companion ability.
    Developer Comments:
    This change will make generating Ultimate from this passive more reliable for Wardens, as it can now proc off non-damaging Animal Companion abilities such as Betty Netch and Falcon’s Swiftness.

    So steady, out of combat ulti gen?

    <sarcasm>They want tanks to stop blocking all time... so what is the issue. You will have plenty of regen when not blocking.</sarcasm>

    I have a two tanks with more magic than stam. I don't like this change at all.

    Neither do I like the changes to blocking (being charged stamina twice as much). The change to Repentance is punishing for my DK tank only. My Templar tank will still benefit, if the Templar healer doesn't need Repentance in his rotation. At this point I have no opinion yet on the impact of the change to Battle Roar. Will evaluate that one when EU chars are copied over.
