    I can't stand all these arm chair programmersgetting all worked up and telling everyone how "easy" it is to change things. They clearly have no idea how a business is run or the chain of command that basically EVERYTHING has to go through before something can be even given a shot at being important enough to put in the top 10 of "needs fixing". Not to mention they must be part of the newest generation of "everything revolves around me" because some how they think their opinions alone warrant mass attention.

    Lol. So let's not complain about botched surgery because we haven't studied to be surgeons. Lol

    Again, when you fix a problem and create two entirely new ones, it's incompetence pure and simple. My business doesn't run this way. We actually test things.

    Just tried Archeage.

    Curse words were auto censored and you could turn it off, however, people were throwing around hate slurs like the N word like it was nobody'd business, and when I asked how to report they had the nerve to be pissed. Apparently, Trion does not give a *** if people do this, they don't want to "micropolice" the chat.

    I hope they get sued.

    Ok everyone, just wanted to give you a quick update of the status for some issues you're experiencing.

    First, the Night's Silence item set is not currently working, but this will be fixed when we release patch 1.4.4. We're also seeing that projectiles are knocking Nightblades out of stealth, even upon a miss, and some abilities are completely knocking you out of stealth instead of just revealing you. Both these issues will be fixed in patch 1.4.4 as well, which will be released next week.

    Thank you very kindly for the update and I am looking quite forward to 1.4.4.
    :)

    Prior to this "fix" for things breaking you out of stealth, the problem was limited. You would get broken out incorrectly by your DoT's on your enemies, OR because the cloak wasn't properly removing DoT's on you.

    HOWEVER, when you stealthed and it actually worked, it would cause all ranged attacks against you to miss. That was before.

    Fast forward to today's patch.

    Now it appears that EVERYTHING can hit you in stealth! Ranged spells, arrows, Silver Bolts, ANYTHING. These were not AOE attacks and I was not marked, they were every single direct ranged attack.

    Furthermore, getting hit by these abilities while stealthed immediately breaks you out of stealth, making the problem worse than before! Not only is damage breaking me out of stealth, but stealth is now useless to prevent damage.

    I was so disheartened by this that I didn't even bother to test if they actually fixed the problem of my own DoT's ticking on enemies breaking cloak.

    Cloak is now utterly useless for me in PVP.
    • Enemy players appear to be able to see you in stealth even when not marked.
    • ANY ranged attack can hit you in stealth and break you out of stealth.
    • Mage Light breaks stealth rather than revealing it.

    There is still a 100% miss chance for projectiles on Dark Cloak. If you're encountering something that seems otherwise, we'd like to hear more details, please (possibly even a video, would be helpful).
    BETTER add dodge chance to blur, is that skill working?

    I think it's professional of them to admit it's a bug. The issue now is, how long to fix it. Hotfix, or next patch making it useless for weeks.

    So a whole week. I guess they think people should put their subs on hold until it's fixed then, since they can't play their class for a week. Are they going to give back a weeks sub time to people affected?

    (yes, clearly I don't expect a company to really offer up substance)

    I knew 1.43 was going to be a problem, so I've taken the week off from playing, glad I have. Hopefully when I get back to playing 1.44 will hopefully resolved a few NB issues.

    Glad you guys are on this, although it's very disappointing that something this game breaking for a specific class made it live.

    I've only got three NB's, your one up on pain on me. :P

    Shadow/Dark Cloak is the staple for an NB, it would be like DK's talons not working, or a Sorc's streak broken. If that was the case there would be outrage, but since it's just another broken NB skill broken everyone thinks we are just moaning and complaining. Hopefully 1.44 works and doesn't break something else for us as seems to be the ZOS way of things.

    Shadow/Dark Cloak isn't used by 'every' NB either, but overall for a majority it's a staple, same with talons for DK, many DK's run talons. You get the point I was making though, even if specifically you don't fit into that category. I'm sure not all sorcs run streak either.

    Shadow is used by a LOT of NB's so to have it broken mean a large portion of NB's are going to have their cranky pants on. The same would be said with the other classes and there high usage skill. That's the point I was making.

    NO.... absolutely unacceptable. I want my money from the monthly sub I JUST paid... back, how do I get this accomplished?

    Class breaking abilities taking a FRIGGING week to get fixed? Are you serious?

    How is this even possible? I had hope against all hope you guys would get your crap together..... stupid me.

    Why aren't you guys taking into account the actual problem of stealth JUST NOT WORKING?

    EARTH to ZOS... EARTH to ZOS

    The addon is called Combat Cloud and you can read about it as well as download a pre-configured interface to look just like mine in that video if you visit my post: PhinixUI addon-powered interface for ESO.

    @Zos_GinaBruno There is also an issue where I am not playing the cloak effect for 3 seconds after I have used Efficient Purge (Morphed from Alliance War ability, Purge). I play the animation, but it takes at least a good three tries before I get the red particle effect and my characters appear invisible for me and friendlies.

    I have no friends in enemy faction, so I can not test properly and do not know if this is just a particle bug or if I am actually remaining visible during the duration.
    Would be nice if someone with enemy friends could test this.

    It is Efficient Purge rank IV coupled with Dark Cloak rank IV. I am using a resto staff.

    This happens both in and out of combat.

    Thank you, but you must understand how frustrating it is for us to have to keep dealing with these issues that just simply shouldn't be making it into live, over and over and over again.

    You just give the impression that either you don't care and push out the patch OR you totally had no idea. Both are just as bad.
