    I sure hope providing a counterplay opportunity to Damage Shields will happen only against shield stackers. Otherwise, this change will do nothing but force Sorcerers to stack even more

    @Aerithone From what I read, it means exactly what it says. In november, you get the dlc as a daily login reward. Probably on the last day of the month.

    And if they have it require something like 28/30 days, it would exclude a lot of people who travel for the holidays. Which I suppose is their intent.

    I would guess more like 30/30 for a DLC. The 100k gold is 28/30 after all

    Overall, some good changes to Cyrodiil :)

    Though I'm worried about this:
    "provide counterplay opportunities for Damage Shield Abilities".

    Damage shields are not OP and I can sense there is an incoming unnecessary nerf to the damage shields.

    "If you survive, you will earn powerful new weapons, such as the Blackrose Greatsword that boosts your Uppercut ability, and new item sets. "
    So, beside blackrose weapons it also will drop new droppable item sets? Like 3 craftable+ 3 droppable arena + 3 overland + blackrose ?

    I think we all sensed an unnecessary nerf to damage shields coming when damage shields got the blame for why healers aren't needed in dungeons at the class rep meeting.

    No, it is DEFINITELY necessary. Perpetual Damage Shielded status is NOT okay...

    It seems the Class Rep program is making more balance issues than balance improvements.
    No offense Reps, it is just isn't working.

    Any decent player can go through a sorcerer shields in PVP.
    Also, they provide an OK amount of defense in both PVP and PVE.
    In hard PVE and PVP gameplay the shields are essential and nerfing the shields won't accomplish anything.

    Since it said it will be available with the daily rewards, does that mean the Launcher will still be broke and we'll miss it because we cant log in. I already missed out on the 100,000 gold and no word from ZOS on fixing that for us that had launcher issues. Guess we'll have to wait and see......

    Damage shields were brought up at the meeting by Wrobel, not by the reps.

    Well I can't say I'm surprised.
    Though I don't notice a real positive influence made by the Class Rep program on combat balance, but this is a topic for other discussion :)

    Some people expect way to much from the class reps.
    Their influence is obviously going to be marginal but at least we have some channel to zos now.

    On the murkmire news:
    Yet again an update im dreading more then hyping for it.

    Hope they dont nerf shields there already extremely limited, i hope the provide counterplay means they add things to other classes to help against shields instead of destroying the entire defense from it for all parts of the game.
    I have very little trust in zos by now. So im going to prepare by looking for alternative hobbies. Haha

    You will have to wait for tommorow. No point in getting angry when you do not have all the info. Plus light and medium armor are getting buff. So it best to wait then getting upset over something not set in stone.

    there are already enough counter player for shields

    battle spirit halves them making them 8k ( there are abilities in pvp that 1 shot that), on top of that their are cc, shield breaker, sloads, shattering blows, drain poisons, light armors dmg mitigation from resist is already abysmal

    and ya i feel ya on the alternative hobbies... this hits pts and ill be finding something else to do for 8-10 hrs a day -_-
