    Overall looks like a really good patch.

    Still surprised Warden is not getting any balance adjustments. I know that new classes are typically OP to get certain...ahem...players to buy the content but I think they have had a nice long run as an over-performing class. Time to take a look at tuning them down a tad.

    Edit: I speak strictly from a PvP perspective as I don't know anything about high end PvE content.

    I'm sorry but I keep seeing you everywhere acting like Magic DK is finished, your class has barely been hit. Magic DK is a DoT character at it's core, the whip is the equivalent of a spectral bow - risk/reward. You have huge pressure and CC's without whip, you have an amazing ultimate which gives you a damage shield and you have great passives. You don't see nightblades moaning when they miss a spectral bow - which is very easy to miss for how hard it is to use effectively in PvP.

    What you are saying is that the old whip created a skill gap for the people fighting against Magic DK's, the new whip creates a skill gap for Magic DK's which they very much needed because in my opinion it's much easier to play a Magic DK effectively than say a Stam DK (Note how I say effectively which doesn't include turtle-tanking on a stam DK)

    PvE I can agree that MagDK's are finished but I'm getting bored with this PvP talk.

    I hope ZOS play their game. But after these changes on PTS ..or since Morrowind...the proof is they're not .


    Ok..people adapt...but there are too many things changed with no explanation..no argument.


    The huge nerfs of dks with no argument is the best proof that ZOS are not playing their game,

    I know many people already said ..but MDK should be removed from the game after these nerfs. Remove our dks and give

    us mag sorcs in exchange.

    Thanks.

    Awesome patch notes all around.

    As someone who plays mDK in PvP, the infinite Power Lashes needed to be toned down & having them be dodgeable is just fair - they're waaaaay too strong against dodge roll oriented builds on Live currently.


    Also, regarding this note:
    Plague Slinger: Fixed an issue where the projectiles fired from this Item Set’s proc were removing enemies from stealth or invisibility.

    ...does this fix work the other way around as well?

    I.e. if I'm a Nightblade using this set and it procs, will my own proc still pull me out of stealth @ZOS_GinaBruno ?

    It says it no longer removes enemies from stealth or invisibility, so just thought I'd ask.

    As someone who does not care about pvp and play magDK in PVE I am not feeling aby better by your comment. It is nice for you, that you find the changes agreeable, but fixing one part of the gane sacrificing the other is plainly wrong. And lets face it constant whining of pvpers is making game worse for pvers. So thank you sooo much and you can be proud. You did it!

    I get your concerns, I do hope they increase mDK viability in PvE (I also PvE a lot, though mostly on my stamblade). But as you said:
    fixing one part of the gane sacrificing the other is plainly wrong

    ...they can't make changes that are good for PvE, but unbalance PvP even more.


    How they could fix some mDK issues is by addressing the Molten Whip morph and making it more of a "PvE morph".

    It's also worth noting that mDK are getting some sustain help in this update; not just the increased CP cap, but also the double resource restoration from heavy attacks - that can be worth up to around 6k magicka every 15-20s.

    The look of the Telvanni Master Wizard Costume now matches what’s advertised in the Crown Store image.

    So what exactly does this mean? Can we finally dye the trim any color other than red? Because I'm sure that is the biggest complaint everyone has had about the costume. Not being able to dye that killed it for me, otherwise it's a great looking costume and reminds me of the original Morrowind's daedric armor.

    Both DK's were fine before morrowind, I don't think they have been dated since Imp city. They are just the hardest class to balance so Zenimax decided to make the DK v2 (Warden) and pray everyone forgets about DK's

    I'm sure it's hard for them to provide honest logical feedback when it's so clear they have no idea what they are doing... Otherwise they'd be interacting with us, listening, and providing more feedback, doing more iterations. They just don't know how to do it and/or what direction they want for some of these classes. They have never done a proper rebalancing. It's all so half a$$ed.. it's never been looked at in totality and with serious effort. It always takes the very very backseat to some DLC. They just don't care, especially PvP. They definitely do not play their game in any serious capacity. </rant>

    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.

    oh boi i'm gonna go grind one up right now, it's way too powerful.

    Amazing what such a terrible patch Morrowind turned out to be and ruined the game in many aspects that has taken up to almost a year now to correct, and one class is still unplayable in PvE so it's not even fixed yet. It's going to take over a damn year.

    Well said, whoever came up with some of the major morrowind changes should be removed from making anymore balance decisions. Game is dropping like a rock in how fun it is to play now patch after patch. Glad they are doing the outfit system because decorating homes and characters is the most enjoyable part of the game anymore.

    Agree 100%. Post Morrowind this game is collapsing. Every single good change comes always with 10 bad ones.

    Not including bugs.

    •Flame Lash (Lava Whip morph): The Power Lash attack from this morph now has a 3 second cooldown.
    •Lava Whip: This ability and its morphs no longer have a cooldown when they can set the enemy target Off Balance. Striking a stunned or immobile enemy will always set them Off Balance.

    So, the morph ALREADY had a cooldown of 5 secs on setting player off balance- and you need to hit during that time to get "powerlash" in the first place....the skill needs to be used twice in a row to be functional.

    And you introduce a 3 sec cooldown to the useful part of skill and allow no cooldown on setting off balance to get "powerlash" ......you just cant use it when they are off balance now because it will be on cooldown. We cant get the damage BUT we can now set off balance ALL the time. WTF?

    Do you think DK's will run around setting players off balance all day? Why put cooldown on something that by design ALREADY HAS to be used back to back to get that damage and then take off cool down for setting them off balance- was that just to frustrate DK's "wow, they are off balance- too bad this is on cool down now and I cant use it"

    I really want to know what ZOS's vision for DK class is, at this point.

    On fundamental level, the class has a number of very obvious issues. Unlike other classes, it cannot DPS and heal at the same time. This is not to say that the class has no healing abilities, it does, but the way they work isn't ideal. Try doing something easy like vMA on a magNB and magDK, and you'll immediately feel the difference. NB will get steady healing while DPSing without doing anything special. Same with magSorc, which along with magNB is considered to be the easiest 2 classes to run vMA with. But DK? Not so much. I would love to see the same dev (preferably someone who has a hand in balancing classes) do a quick vMA run or magSorc/magBlade, and then a run on magDK. Just the score and time alone will be pretty clear indicator that things are off. And you can't blame "game isn't balanced for 1v1" when you are doing content purely intended for solo. If the class doesn't work well there, it doesn't work anywhere.

    The class has no execute. Which would be fine, if the gameplay supported slow-and-steady combat. Instead, especially in PvP, burst is king. If you guys are dead-set on DoTs for DKs, bring in some executioner DoTs (e.g. Poison Injection).

    The class has no/low mobility. Yes, there's Empowered Chains, which is extremely buggy on any kind of even slightly uneven terrain. Just fixing it so that it actually works would go a long way, but it's been bugged for a very, very, very, very, very long time and no fix in sight. Not to mention that this skill itself is completely nonsensical, logically speaking. Why get Major Expedition AFTER you charge your target and are standing face to face with it? That is literally the situation where you need Major Expedition the least. Now, putting Major Expedition on Reflecting Scales? Perfectly sensible - making it a good escape and gap closer/mobility while surviving. The cost and 6 sec duration would keep it from becoming overbearing, like Warden's bird wings. But putting it on a charge skill was just a complete muppet show. But here it is, and here it stays?

    The stand-your-ground approach may have been feasible back when Flames of Oblivion was an actual AoE that actually hurt, and when Reflective Scales actually reflected most things for the entire duration without a projectile count. But in current game, where things like Warden birds can't be reflected, and Force Shock is a beam now, standing your ground gets you killed. And speaking of beams, I can lend you guys a mirror and a laser pointer, so you can see what happens when a beam hits a reflector, it's fascinating! Not to mention, once again, the cost. Correct me if I'm wrong, but DK has some of the priciest abilities in the game. Does that come with best sustain in the game? Not since you gutted sustain last year. Which, lest we forget, many people still passionately dislike because heavy attack meta is as slow and tedious as it gets.

    And last but not least, the lack of range. Can we agree once and for all that being able to attack your target from 0-28 meters away without any loss of DPS is hands-down superior, in every respect, than only being able to attack your target from 0-7 meters away, or suffer a significant DPS loss? What compensation is there for that restriction? Because currently mDKs are most certainly not welcome in vet trials. Too much of a liability. Again, perhaps more mobility would be a good solution - allow DKs to move out of harm's way and back in position? Alternative would be to grant them enough burst defense to survive anything without moving, but I know you guys hate it when people game the fight mechanics, and that would make it all too easy to skip many of those. But without on-demand mobility and burst survivability, while retaining short range requirements, just leaves DKs in a very weird place in a non-tank role.

    Speaking of roles. When was the last time you guys seen a DK healer? Especially in a vet trial? When was the last time you saw someone using Cauterize and Obsidian Shard, in endgame competitive setting? Can this be considered a balanced situation? Though DKs are not alone in this, when was the last time you see a competitive vet trial group running a Sorc or NB main tank? That whole situation needs to be addressed. Some time ago someone at ZOS (I forget who) alluded that they really liked what they did with the Warden - a clear DPS tree, healing tree and tank tree, and that other classes should move closer to that. Well then, do it! This will have a positive ripple effect as well. People often complain about the lack of tanks, but it's also accepted that raid main tanks are to be DKs and to a lesser degree Wardens. And not everyone plays a DK or a Warden. So right there, you've eliminated 3/5ths of players from the equation. Bringing balance to the roles (tanking, DPS and healing) would go a long way in improving the situation.

    At this point, I honestly don't know what you want this class to be, or how you expect it to perform any role outside of tanking. And even that you mess with, by changing the costs in the upcoming patch. Make up your mind, and make some changes. It also feels like you have a major disconnect between Balancing team and Combat team? That is, combat team makes changes to mechanics, but balancing team fails to react in time, and things end up being broken, bordering on unplayable? Something to ponder.

    I agree on most, except the first point. Embers and power whip allowed for some easy healing whilst damaging. The CD on power whip will just badly in vMA.

    For range they need to make wings per target, but back to 4s and maybe 3 projectiles per target.

    Expedition isn't needed either. Dk isn't and shouldnt be a fast class. But it shouldnt be as permasnared as it is now. Unless you are in mist or using fm you will be snared like heck. So the less damage morph of wings should remove snare.

    The main problem with Burning Embers and Power Whip is that both are delayed heals, not ongoing heals. Burning Embers will only heal when the target dies, or duration runs out, or it gets refreshed. The heal isn't ongoing. Same with Power Whip, it requires a setup, you can't just press one button willy-nilly without a proc or prep and get immediate healing while DPSing.

    By comparison, a Sorc will be getting passive healing while DPSing from things like Blood Magic, Critical Surge, etc. A Nightblade will be getting passive healing while DPSing from things like Strife, Refreshing Path, Sap Essence, etc., all of which have an ongoing heal component on top of DPS component. Templar from Sweeps, etc.

    It's not that DKs have no healing, it's that it's very awkward compared to almost passive healing while DPSing of other classes. Just looking at VMA scoreboards is pretty telling, in this regard. The two classes who are best at it, Sorcs and NBs, are pretty high up there. Meanwhile DKs not so much. In fact, DK and Templar are usually at the bottom because Templar's Sweeps are also melee range, which is also quite restrictive. But at least it's immediate and requires no prep (the way Power Whip does).

    At least that's been my experience.

    As far as Major Expedition goes, my main point is that if they give one to DKs, putting it on the charge ability isn't a good place to put it. Though apparently some PvPers disagree and find it useful. It's just running really fast immediately following a gap closer hasn't been very useful for me. And in PvE where mobs don't kite it's pretty much dead. Not to mention that often you could use Major Expedition, but charging the only available enemy isn't safe at the time, which makes it a moot point. Whereas sticking it on something like Reflective Scale would allow movement regardless of targets present. The same way Warden wings and Nightblade's Path and Sorc's Storm work. Templar is largely in the same boat as DK, but at least they can purge cheaply and heal on demand.

    oh boi i'm gonna go grind one up right now, it's way too powerful.

    Amazing what such a terrible patch Morrowind turned out to be and ruined the game in many aspects that has taken up to almost a year now to correct, and one class is still unplayable in PvE so it's not even fixed yet. It's going to take over a damn year.

    Well said, whoever came up with some of the major morrowind changes should be removed from making anymore balance decisions. Game is dropping like a rock in how fun it is to play now patch after patch. Glad they are doing the outfit system because decorating homes and characters is the most enjoyable part of the game anymore.

    Agree 100%. Post Morrowind this game is collapsing. Every single good change comes always with 10 bad ones.

    Actually no. No matter how I oppose the Soul Assault change, the game is so much more balanced since Morrowind patch.

    Better spread of CPs, better usage of traits, better usage of mundus stones, better armour balancing, better behaving of certain abused monster sets - to name a few. Some people fail to see that or are opposed to any change unless it's benefiting THEM, but that's their problem.

    As for the Major Expedition tied to Chains for a DK:

    Yeah, it doesn't make much sense. You're gap closing... so it's kind of wasted. I love using Chains- but I feel like a major expedition buff on that skill line is pointless.

    It would be more beneficial if ZoS put Major Expedition on a skill like Wings, Stone Fist, or Molten Weapons. It would actually make more sense on Stone Fist (since you'd be able to stun a target and then run up to them) or Molten Weapons (since this applies to StamDKs and MagDKs)
    Want to enjoy the game more? Try both PvP (crybabies) and PvE (carebears). You'll get a better perspective on everyone's opinion.
