    Not really getting hyped for the next nerf potes.

    What if they nerf everything but the things you love? HYPE

    I play 5 magsorcs. No way they won't nerf what I love.

    You gotta diversify yo bonds

    It's funny, because In real life I trade securities (Forex / indexes / stocks).

    However, this is a GAME and I play a GAME exactly because I want to relax after work.
    In a GAME I found a class I love 5 times more than the others, why should I, in a game, be forced to constantly play something I don't like else I am at clear disadvantage? What's wrong is in the game, not in my desire - and expense - to play a game.

    It was just a quote from Chapelle Show, don't take it as actual criticism. You can play this game however you want mate. Sorc nerfs are over, Google that skit and get hype!

    It's funny how people keep saying the sorc nerfs are over...

    And may the Sorc nefs never have an end
    New to forums and stuff so I 99.9 percent probably won't see your response and such, so use the at symbol at me I guess? IDK :/. This BBCode stuff is really cool!! :D.

    One day Nightblades will get the buffs we desperately need and deserve, but so far, those buffs are not today.. The Elder Scrolls Online: Nightblade Nerfs Unlimited.
    Don't nerf you, don't nerf me, nerf the sorc behind the tree!.

    Ich kann Deutsch Sprechen bei der mittleren/zwischen Kenntnissen Ebene. Hallo! :D.

    CP level 870. Playing since 2015.

    My wishlist I suppose:
    • PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEEAAASSSEEE EITHER BUFF SIPHONING STRIKES OR REVERT IT BACK TO PRE MORROWIND!!.
    • Bring back purge cloak. But I guess the new heal cloak is more beneficial. Hmmm....
    • MAKE IMPERIAL CITY GREAT AGAIN, BRING BACK THOSE INCREDIBLE DAYS. My best experiences in ESO where in there!
    • Return Stam builds to the power we held in One Tamriel. Long Live Stamina builds!
    • Put Magplar and MagDK into their place. Magpsorc is a hopeless case.
    • Is there any chance that we could get an Ebonheart Pact nerf? #CullingTheHerds .

    • AD - xak-Morrowindx - Khajiit Stamina Nightblade. Hours: 91 days, 2 hours (2,186 hours).

    No, but the next PTS cycle will probably be some time Wednesday/Thursday if the rumors are true, everything is just speculation at this point.

    I think that would be very optimistic... Last times there has been at least a few weeks between announcement and PTS...

    Well if they want to stick to a schedule release cycle they will give us the big release tomorrow and then ether this Friday there will be another stream or they will hold it off for one more week cause they can go into a late Feb launch with March being the latest they can launch whats coming next before they loose the window of 4 releases this year. They have had a release schedule for the last 2 years thats been pretty stable.

    2017
    Home Stead February 6th

    Morrowind June 6th

    Horns of the Reach August 14th

    Clockwork City October 23rd

    2018
    Dragon Bones February 12th

    Summerset June 5th

    Wolfhunter August 28th

    Murkmire October 22nd

    And the reason I say March it will give them a prefect window to release and still meet the June release date. But you never know with any thing cause they could change the schedule do to this being an continual story throughout the year so no one knows really.

    Usually expect it 4 weeks minimum before the DLC update. So I would expect it very very soon if they are going to give us the DLC in February as in the past two years...

    Then this years pts would have to be exceptionally short. PTS is always at least 4 weeks. So this DLC will not release until late february and PTS or updates only arrive on mondays and tuesdays. Since the stream is tomorrow, they could bring us a big surprise and say, PTS releases right after the show. That would be the most optimistic case.

    Otherwise January 21th or 22th will almost 100% be PTS release, with February 18th probably being the actual release. These are my theories anyway. This is supported by the fact, that this strange pvp event took place now. It seems like a bait for us to stay busy before the pts comes. The end of the event perfectly aligns with my wagered release day.

    On the other hand, this year is built up to be special and different. So who knows, they could very well break traditions and nothing is predictable.

    @Dracane Its always been 5 weeks for PTS and if the go to the PTS to stay on a schedule of 3 months they have to release this update by march or the rest of the year will be off schedule. Other wise its there game they can release things how they want.

    There are always 4 pts builds.
    The first when the pts arrives.
    The 2nd after 1 week of pts.
    The 3rd after 2 weeks of pts.
    The 4th after 3 weeks of pts.
    And then one week later it releases and we get some minor changes. Isn't that 4 weeks ? I am quite horrible at math. :D

    Thats 5 weeks of testing yes and thats how it works.

    Week one PTS arrives
    week 2 minor changes
    week 3 major changes
    week 4 minor changes
    week 5 release to live servers

    The last one Murkmire started on the 17th of September on PTS and it Launched on the 22nd of October. But yeah there are only 4 weeks of Patch's with the 5th week being launch week. So 5 weeks in total.

    hopefully it's magsorc. that's usually the only one ZOS is too scared to nerf, especially considering how many nerfs they retracted last time due to EZ-mode players backlashing.

    it'll probably be DK again though. it usually is.

    I must oppose then. This is not how I would calculate that. If week 5 already is the release week, you can't even count that as pts anymore and when the 2nd build arrives, only 1 week has passed since then. That's really only 4 weeks of pts in total.

    PTS build numbers vary, sometimes they have 4 builds and sometimes they have 5. You can tell by the patch note numbers. Murkmire had 4 builds:

    Week 1 - 4.2.0 - initial pts build
    Week 2 - 4.2.1
    Week 3 - 4.2.2
    Week 4 - 4.2.3 - final pts build
    Week 5 - Mirkmire releases on live server

    Wolfhunter on the other hand had 5 weeks of PTS and 5 builds:

    Week 1 - 4.1.0 - initial pts build
    Week 2 - 4.1.1
    Week 3 - 4.1.2
    Week 4 - 4.1.3
    Week 5 - 4.1.4 - final pts build
    Week 6 - Wolfhunter releases on live server
