      • Updated the completion achievements for the White-Gold Tower and Imperial City Prison dungeons:
        • Anyone who has completed these dungeons previously will now have credit for the "Veteran White-Gold Tower" and "Veteran Imperial City Prison" achievements. Going forward, you will need to complete these dungeons at Veteran difficulty to get credit for these achievements.

    One of two's not bad. Now we just need to get Stuga into all the cities (and not just Daggerfall/Davon's Watch/Vulkhel Guard), and anyone will be able to start the quest from anywhere.

    [quote[Vampire and Werewolf bites are now permanent, and can only be removed by getting a cure or fully transforming into a Vampire or Werewolf.[/quote]

    Glad to see this be a thing, was very irritating going into town next to the wayshrine only to have someone spamming purge ruin your day.

    I also want to comment on the changes to the world bosses. The increase in damage but drop in health is clearly intended to reduce the duration of those fights but honestly I thought the long battles were a good thing. I was fighting Nyzchaleft alone on pts and it was a very enjoyable fight, having a long battle to learn the mechanics and testing how well my character could last in a long fight I found to be very refreshing since most other world bosses in the rest of the game are killed far to quickly in my opinion. I liked the long fights, not sure how much I like seeing them shortened.

    "Shield: This item can now drop as part of either the Permafrost or Glorious Defender item sets."

    I'm trying to figure out a set combo where this would actually work out and i can't really.

    Because the main setup that'd you want to do this with is non crafted gear... Like for example if I wanted to run Black Rose setup with Perma Frost...if it was Sword/Shield you could do that..but since its just shield it means you have to give up Undaunted Head and Shoulders for that to work...and no one is going to do that really.

    If its crafted gear you can already get around it and its not needed....

    Issue 3: The Maelstrom tanking weapons are the only one that require it's user to do something extra (full heavy attack) in order to gain the altering effect. What the heck?

    ?

    The destruction staff altering effect requires you to place wall of elements, and then you have to use a light/heavy attack to gain the actual bonus damage of the effect.

    The dual wield altering effect requires you to use flurry, and then cast a dot which will then receive a buff.

    If my understanding is correct, it means they are improving. Rather than getting 5% increased weapon damage, you're now getting 5% total damage, which is a more powerful effect. If you made a Greatsword for the purpose of using that buff, however, it will no longer be ideal, and you'll have to craft swords to replace it.

    Thanks for the Natch Potes, and very glad that somewhere someone mentioned the Maelstrom Dagger buff doesn't buff channeled DoTs, that was just crazy.

    There are still a few things about Maelstrom Arena that need addressing. But there are many a thread and post about that.

    The Stranglers are still glitching out on Vet Arena 3, where sometimes they pull you and you bounce back to where you were pulled from. 100 ms latency and 60 fps, not likely on my end.

    Also I would like to mention, that partway through the first 3 arenas somewhere, part of my food buff wore off. Using the crown food, I still had the hp portion, but lost the magicka and stamina buffs. (Still had about 30 minutes left on the timer.) Reapplying the food fixed it, but this was not a tool-tip error, my shields (Sorc template) and dps took a hit. I do not know if this is crown food specific or a result of random deaths in vMA, but seems like something players would complain a lot about if it became a rampant bug. If no one experiences it and it is just a template bug, then meh.

    Thank you @Dymence for correcting my point. My point should instead be the following.
    No other player has to do something antithetical to their well being in order to activate their Maelstrom weapons altering effect other than a player using the Maelstrom tanking weapon.

    This goes back to what Eric Wrobel said during ESO Live 21. He found that tanks were 'just holding block the whole time' and I don't doubt that. The issue is that just because they made a nerf to stamina regeneration doesn't suddenly make tanks less wary of an enemies fully charged attack. But how does this relate to tanking itemization and, in particular, the Maelstrom tanking item?

    Well, I think it is to do with the perceptions of the developers. Based on Eric's comments I find it reasonable to assume that the developers find not blocking, or fully charged heavy attacks in the case of the Maelstrom tanking set, as viable for tanking in this game. Despite that perception though, many enemies can either one-shot a non-blocking tank or do so much damage that unblocked damage causes unnecessary stress for the healer of the group. I point to the Black Rose set, the Endurance set, and now the Maelstrom tanking set, as further proof that the developers don't want permanent blocking and think that tanking difficult content in other ways is something that tanks should consider.

    Shortly after Deltia let the cat out of the bag about the Black Rose set allowing him to permanently block, the set suffered a tremendous change. The Endurance set featured stamina regeneration despite the nerf to stamina regeneration while blocking. Now the Maelstrom tanking weapon features the effect that requires a fully charged heavy attack.

    The developers can keep trying to incentivize tanks to not be 'just holding block the whole time,' but ultimately the biggest incentive is to not die and I don't think that the developers can overcome that part of tanking by giving tanks a very, very, lame bonus if they drop block once in a while.

    In the end, I am certainly wrong, but I also think there is still an important distinction between what tanks have to do for their Maelstrom weapon activation and what DPS have to do for their activation. I took for granted that stamina DPS would already be using DOTs so I did not consider there to be a cost to their Flurry based Maelstrom weapon. I'm also pretty sure that most players are weaving attacks so I jumped to conclusions by not considering light or heavy attacks as a real cost for magic DPS who want to activate their Maelstrom staffs altered effect. I don't necessarily believe that multiple actions should be a part of activating any Master or Maelstrom weapon effect and I certainly don't believe that a second action should be antithetical to the role using said weapons (like is the case with the Maelstrom tanking weapon).

    Don't tank

    I just really don't understand why the new dungeons are getting nerfed again. They were at a perfect spot. Many, many players were finally starting to get them down and complete them, and you nerf them again. It's unnecessary. This is why people have no clue how to play this game. Eck.

    Yea, there needs to be at least some content that has a high skill threshold so that players have something actually challenging to play and gives guilds good reasons to set up group event nights, and so on. Once people learn the mechanics and associated strategies more widely it will become more accessible as well.

    I haven't completed either of the new IC dungeons yet, but that's just because of my schedule more than anything. I want to experience the challenge first hand before the nerf, so I guess I better get a move on!

    What happened with the Veteran Maelstrom Arena leaderboards this patch? I don't see anything about it in the patch notes, but the scoring system has changed tremendously from the previous patch.

    My best on the last version was a time of 1h3m14s with 2 deaths and that gave me a score of roughly 629,000.

    Now I just completed another run which was much better than that run. I completed it in 59 minutes with also 2 deaths, identical sigil use (but the penalty for using sigils should be less now, anyways) and I only got a score of roughly 303,000.

    What gives?
