    As a Magblade I feel sorry for all of you guys who play magicka DK as main character...
    I hope Wrobel will finally open his eyes and see how bad this situation is...

    I don't. They've been the best in a 1v1 fight for a loooooong time. I doubt this will drastically change that

    Nightblade
    • Assassination
      • Grim Focus: The stacks you build toward the bow proc for this ability and its morphs will now remain if you recast the ability early, or if the ability expires. The partial stack will be removed if you exit combat.

      Awesome! I was hoping for this to happen!

      For everyone whining about soul assault don't just say it needs the snare back without offering any counterplay advice. And no reducing the snare effectiveness is not counterplay.

      No proc expiration when fully charged?

      Here you go - a new gang one shot build incoming - Blob's already working on it.

      And I guess sorcs will cry to preserve their frag proc too now.

      Actually; removing it when leaving combat makes me think that cloaking could make it fall off

      @ZOS_GinaBruno Wasn't there mention of reducing the cost of storage containers? Where are those in the patch notes. Or is that merely for outfit station

      Battlegrounds
      • Reduced the rewards for finishing in second place to 10000 AP, and third place to 7000 AP.
      Well i though that this was mainly to promote Battlegrounds more and reduce AP farming in cyrodiil... It feels kind-of unnecessary. I would understand that if Battlegrounds had some sort of MM that will pair pugs with other pugs... most of the time it is pugs vs pre-mades... :#

      what about using an snare or a CC before your ultimate? The soul assult snare was brutal and removed counterplay

      That means wasting another slot for a cc ability, as a mag sorc. Frags no longer stun, SA will no longer stun. Besides, stamina people easily break CC in pvp. SA snare effectively countered those fast, erratic NBs.

      SA was brutal mostly to those who didn't know how to counter it. It was effective most of the time, as all ultis should. (though use it wrong - near obstacle and you will be out of any ulti points with zero damage!) Reducing the snare is one thing but going from 70% to 0% is just nonsense.

      Plus it was a nice rewarded ultimate, unlocked to those who actually played the game and finished the main quest.

      You're not.
      There's nothing in regard to block changes.
      If this is all update 17 has to offer in regard to balance changes, it is seriously bad.
      I hope the next incremental patch will add additional balance changes and maybe revert some of the mentioned changes in this thread.

      The “Storage Coffer, Fortified” collectible can now only be obtained from the Level Up Advisor at level 18.
      This just seems like its pushing the 15th purchasable character slot pretty hard. Could have at least left in the crown store buy option at least. Looks like anyone who wants a full set of storage will have to grind out a new alt.

      The lack of mention of hide head slot/other slots or changes/fixes to them is disconcerting. I hope to have no loss in functionality that the current hide helmet toggle currently does. It is concerning especially since all the outfit system gold sinks are still on the table even for ESO plus members.

      Wish I could change my MagDK into a MagNB. Guess he'll be relegated to crafting duty.

      That’s where I went when Templar got more and more into the healer role.

      Power Lash definitely needed a nerf. Mag DK’s is way too bursty. I was so tired of one-shotting tanky targets with my high spell damage and great sustain as a Mag DK. I’m glad they buffed Nightblade and Templar and didn’t touch Warden, I feel as though snipe and birds are very well-balanced.

      Its funny because ZOS won't understand your sarcasm

      DK changes seemed rushed to balance the new helm together and wasn't tested properly.

      Soul assault was a great change

      Off balanced I'm sure was tested a lot since it is the main point for a lot of pve dps

      The immovable pot time change seems like a targeted change meaning wrobel didn't like it personally and wanted to *** me :)

      AP changes to BGs seems like you did the math and it's too much but right now BGs are some what vacant and need more players so this doesn't help that issue. If anything it will discourage players.

      Umm that's all my effort for this XD hope the comments get attention. The other changes we will have to look at on live to see if they are right for the game or not and ummmmmmmmmmm did boots get standards? Did I read that right lol rip

      • Ardent Flame
        • Flame Lash (Lava Whip morph): The Power Lash attack from this morph now has a 3 second cooldown.
      In my opinion, 3 seconds is too much. 2 seconds!
      Look at this: "(...) to deal Flame Damage and stun them for 2 seconds. You also heal over 2 seconds."
      That is... 2 seconds cooldown!
