    I like the premise of the undodgeable AOE, unblockable DOTs, undodgeable and unblockable ground effects but it feels like there will be a lot more abilities that will need to be touched to match the rule beyond just what is listed here. Is that further down the line or are all just going to follow this rule starting now and you just listed exceptions?

    Same could be said for the idea that powerful snares should be very short. Looks like only one is being addressed this pass?

    • Strife: Fixed an issue where the heal over time from this ability and its morphs would still apply to you even if the enemy dodged the attack.

    Will this remove the heal of a previous strife that did hit?

    Pretty sure they just quickfixed the things people were complaining, be honest 1 week for these changes are not a lot, so reckon we will see more changes coming to dodgeable/undodgeable list along with other changes.

    still no dummies that count as players or undead/daedra though? :(

    As far as I can partially agree with Dive change I actually think overall it's half baked and not enough. It changes mainly PvP magwardes experience and not stamwardens which are very strong and dont need birds for that. Also When skill was released Zenimax said it'll be undodgable because it have delay so something needs to compensate that. What will compensate that now ? Now it'll be basicly a range spammable ability with delay so in PvE it's still weak if compared to other skills like Strife or Force Shock. Dive should get some compensation and more changes that would make skill stronger in PvE and compensate the delay in PvP.

    Totally agree! Damage increase by 10% to start. Make the birds fly faster

    Awesome update, appreciate nothing is set in stone but some REALLY positive updates to test especially the ability to block and/or dodge certain abilities and affects /COUGH pigeons!

    Some awesome balancing so far, i also am very happy about the skeletons being fixed based on recent events. There has been a huge uproar which was created by people assuming certain classes were over/under performing vs others, based on (deliberate) invalid/inaccurate test results taking full advantage of broken mechanics (skeleton had no cool downs on some status effects) to get higher numbers. Happy that this is now being altered for a better gauge of how your abilities and rotations would act/reflect vs an actual boss encounter.

    The off balance "Up time" duration i like and it actually falls bang on with current testing of the Mag dk allowing 2 free whips out of 5 in the whole off balance duration up time making sustain pretty good with certain rotations. However i still think the "cool down/immunity" should be closer to 10 than 15, HOWEVER of course there is testing to be done, so cannot say for sure yet. Positive about it regardless and this should be a fun week!

    Looking forward to testing everything this week and seeing how things tick. Keeping in mind nothing is real until it is RELEASED...i shall take an in depth look at how these changes could affect areas of the game.

    ps: We still need DSA loot on pts, still have no box with those items sets in for testing:)

    Holy crap.... the birds are dodgeable........... THIS PATCH JUST GOT AMAZING.

    Unfortunately yes "Dive: The damage from this ability and its morphs can now be dodged."

    Can't believe that. My MagWarden is *** in PvE Damage and now you steal his Bird-Attack in PvP. What should I do in PvP then? Be a healer or tank?

    Should switch to a twohand-stamina then for PvP... seems to be better. Bye Bye my Warden.


    What? No one stole it. They gave people a counter play option to it to not get midlessly spammed by 5k ranged attacks.

    Nailed it. NB's are ridiculous with this crap. Oh you're attacking me? Cloak, run, avoid all damage and prevent any further attacks.

    RIP magwardens

    Yeah please join the graveyard - find a spot next to the other magica classes.

    It is a good patch in general. And magica builds looks even now (underperfoming compared to stamina builds but even across magica builds!).

    This a good starting point to buff up all magica builds.

    Please then rename the skill "Drunken Pidgey".

    Thanks.

    The real question are:

    why Dive has been undodgeable until now?

    And why it is still unblockable?

    It is blockable. It's being changed now to force everyone to buy the new Chapter coming later this year.
    My guess, there's a set that replaces birds for wardens lol (or more positive, spellcrafting!)

    Please can someone tell us if this is going to be the last set of patch notes for this PTS, or are there going to be more next week?

    I'd really, really like to get all these wonderful updates onto live so that I can start playing with them for real :)

      • Solar Barrage (Solar Flare morph): The damage from this morph can now be blocked, but cannot be dodged.
    Dark Flare is the other morph. Solar Barrage is the AoE morph nobody uses. This change (as well as all the other abilities made undodgeable, like whirlwind and cleave) is to make sure you can't i-frame through AoEs like it's some Dark Souls kind of s**t. It also means the best counter to dodgeroll spammers will be AoEing them to hell.

    Sad day for zerg surfing bird spamming wardens. Good. Was no surprise when all the prolific zergling Xv1 types gravitated to and coalesced on this class.

    Also great change on the snare reduction on low slash, that skill did way too much.

    Can dodge dive now but didn't compensate for the change, it's honestly these type of changes that make me think the dev team is full of first timers; plus you guys constantly contradict yourselves. Yay nerfed dive but still haven't touched stam wardens which is ridiculous, I don't know why anyone would applaud this obvious incompetence.

    Dives uniqueness is in its delay. It is fine, it deals high damage and even heals a bit. No compensation needed.

    Pve warden needs stuff, but pvp, both specs are still good.

    Lol, the delay is what makes it horrible when it is dodgeable now :D
