    "Adapt or quit" I guess.

    I have an Ice Mage Warden, and a Healer Bear Warden. This particular update is kicking both of them in the nuts.

    I simply don't have the desire to adapt to senseless nerfs. IMHO, nerfs, especially ones that completely remove DPS from a skill, or heavily reduce DPS by a third of their previous value, should only be used as a last resort and only when there was a game-breaking imbalance where those skills were evidently in an overpowered state.

    It is a rare mind indeed that can render the hitherto non-existent blindingly obvious. The cry 'I could have thought of that' is a very popular and misleading one, for the fact is that they didn't, and a very significant and revealing fact it is too. - Douglas Adams

    New title for magdens coming in Murkmire, "Bag Space Node Collector Extraordinaire"

    Hopefully the bear will be strong enough to protect me from the occasional skeever while I collect nodes. It could end up being an epic battle though, so there's always that. :)

    ZOS has no idea what they're doing.

    Even with the bear, magicka warden is still tied for the lowest DPS in the game. But that means their DPS will go down in actual content where the AI runs into pathing issues and deals less DPS. It also can't be used in all content.

    Discarding the bear in favour of another ultimate is still not viable. Madgden DPS drops even further without the bear (even with all the buffs to passives). The bear is also the only way to proc the Master Architect 5pc bonus. This is the ONLY group utility a magicka warden provides (sad, I know).

    I started this thread but it kinda died out. It'd be nice if us wardens could push it back up. Maybe some dev can see it that way.

    The bear is fine how it is.

    I just don't see why they needed to nerf the bear so hard without really buffing much in return.

    Pets are fine in general, but a lot of the scripting makes them wonky.

    Pet commands are hit and miss, and I would love to have a "Focus" cmd to tell me pet to ignore adds and focus on thing while I kill another. <Not tied to heavy attacks*>
