    If the goal with the sustain issues is not just to lower damage potential but also support group play in all situations (Since Orbs and Shards become more important that ever)... why .not just have orbs and shards share CD like they do now, but restore both values at once. Rather that first the alternating spectrum you had before, and now the which ever has the higher total.

    All this change has done is hurt tanking. Tanking nearly every update takes a hit even if its not intended half the time....

    And ZoS if you want something other than a DK to be a reliable tank... active stamina restore like the DK has, just saying.

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

    Exactly what I was thinking. The best option would honestly be to have there be two morphs, one that gives stam and one that gives magicka, or returning Orbs and Shards to their Live version.

    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.

    <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.

    Were you talking PvP? Cause I like to see you drop during a thousand cuts that are like whispers in the wind.

    I have already figured out the solution to the shards/orbs problem of nog being able to restore other than one type of resource..
    Step 1: Gear up so you have roughly the same amount of magicka and stamina..
    Step 2: Drink food with 5k magicka bonus, cast orbs/shards
    Step 3: Drink food with 5k stamina bonus cast orbs/shards.

    :dizzy:

    Or have a 2 pc bonus completed on each bar - one with +Magicka, the other with +Stamina, and a dead even split otherwise.

    Then you can hope you're on the right bar when you synergize to get the resource you need.

    I'm not fond of the idea of freeing a spot on my healer's bar at the expense of burning my teammates in the process.

    Leave Orbs for Magicka, and shards for Stamina, the way it is on live...
    Just because you don't like the way something is doesn't necessarily make it wrong...

    Earn it.
    I am neither warm, nor fuzzy...

    • Shadow
      • Shadow Barrier: Increased this passive ability’s base duration of Major Ward and Major Resolve to 3/6 seconds from 2/4 seconds.
        Developer Comments:
        Increasing the duration of this passive’s bonuses will improve the overall survivability of Nightblades. Heavy Armor, tank-focused Nightblades in particular should have a much smoother time maintaining nearly consistent uptime on these buffs with a combinations of abilities such as Refreshing Path or Summon Shades.
    • Siphoning
      • Siphoning Strikes: Fixed an issue where the heal from this ability and its morphs could not critically strike.

    [/list]


    Really liking the increased armor buff duration, it was quite annoying keeping major ward/resolve up in a 5/1/1 light armor set up, which only had a 5 second duration(only 1 heavy piece). with fear as my only regular shadow skill(can't spam shadow image), i can probably have a much better up time for armor buffs if i CC people on cooldown.

    its still 25% time increase for every heavy armor piece right? making a 5/1/1 light armor set up have 6*1.25=7.5 sec of major ward/resolve? @ZOS_GinaBruno

    @ZOS_GinaBruno Can you then change the amount required to open a door to 40 or 50? Just fits into 200 better.

    What's up with the Orb/Shards changes?o.O This is likely going to kill already rather niche magicka tanks(not to mention making it 100% impossible for a magicka build to gain stamina via synergies, but this generally won't ruin a build...unless you're a magicka tank). It's great you're trying to listen to the community but this is a step in the wrong direction.

    You're talking about versatility but changes like this are basically pushing everyone, now even the tanks who have always had more leeway than other roles, into cookie cutter builds. Please try to make the people making these decisions understand that, @ZOS_GinaBruno :(

    I'm not sure what the solution is tbh, I like the way it's on live where there's a guaranteed way to restore a certain resource (even if stamina one is class limited), but I absolutely approve of making stamina restore available to all classes but just...not like this. Even previous lowest % version was better overall I'd say.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno, Does this mean chests require 200 keys to open, or the existing 60?

    @ZOS_GinaBruno which parts, if any, are included in and or lifted from the NDA?

    The class changes from the base game are not under NDA.

    Also, everyone, please remember this is only the start of our second week on the PTS. There are still adjustments to be made in the coming patches.

    Gina, I really hope that the team aren't considering rolling back some of the great class changes they're making unless there's data to support that.

    Damage was simply too high, and sustain too low and unimportant. Might help to lift more of the NDA so people can get to grips with the concept.

    Keep up the good work!

    Been waiting for this for like 2 years. It couldn't come a moment later either, with how expensive Shadow abilities are now and how severely limited reduced cost options are for tanking. Plus our inherent sustain is virtually non-existent now; Our class resource return was nerfed effectively by around 80% or so, plus the Constitution nerfs on top of it. A perfect player will still spend a quarter of their up-time on SA/LS just trying to recover its up-front cost. It completely baffles me as to why you would have such a hefty up-front cost on this when you explicitly stated this as an exemption for Warden's Netch on ESO Live. Seriously... NBs are the last class to need a nerf and you gutted their only true strength.

    You guys realize you're driving the spread between DKs and NBs further, right? You're not balancing things out here, you're making it worse. If you're going to drive our sustain into the ground, at least make it so my Shades can physically pick up enemies and drag them over to me like an angry bouncer or something. At least then we'd have some utility to bring to a group.
