    Mind explaining to me and others why heretics are getting the highest absorb in the game, and coupled with 25% buff bonus, now the highest AF in the game, PLUS Static tempest? This class got heavily buffed last patch. And now, all this coupled with PD9, RR5, BA, reduced timer on snare, plus all their other goodies...this class will be god mode. Surely you can see this....

  • It will be more evident when it goes live
  • There are concerns from all realms on various balance changes, but at this point lets just see what happens. :)

    At least these stuff can be hotfixed if anything goes bad.

  • What does a mithril cost? Is it real money or bounty points?

    Good question with a tricky answer. Mithril in todays games terms is a currency bought with real money and used for transmutations and other cash shop purchases. Mithril used to be a mythical currency that could not be attained (per your character anyway). It was the roll over number after you would hit 999.999.999 platinum, but since they hard coded the characters not to be able to go over 201 plat, then it was always a fictional currency imho.

    Short answer to your question :smile:

    425 Mithril = $4.99
    975 Mithril = $9.99
    2,200 Mithril = $19.99
    5,750 Mithril = $49.99

  • Just to clarify on that, if you purchase 425 Mithril you are not able to convert that into 425,000 plat.
  • Prices in Canadian

    425 Mithril = $6.49
    975 Mithril = $12.99
    2,200 Mithril = $25.99
    5,750 Mithril = $64.99

    I don't see you complaining about Thanes getting a 1700 range, 212 energy damage, 2.4s cast DD.

    But I have both a Thane and Tic so lol

  • I can’t wait to respec my thane to full cast ra’s. With dragon crest I was over 300 pie on my frosty
  • Thanks didn't need the boost. But to your point, by us getting that boost, the timeres chained lightning. So slight Nerf
  • edited November 2018 PM
    Out of the box I think Thanes match cloth caster DPS now with their nuke, exceed it with self debuff or instas (excluding Doom Hammer). Even with the bonus dex/acuity from levels, Shaman acuity and 5% base crit.

  • Awesomesauce with a side of kick-a$$!!! So excited for this patch for numerous reasons. I love the idea of making buggane back in EV all the time, making gear purchasable with BP's, the new ruined areas are much bigger, and I hope some of the new fixes correct some big bugs! Great job BS!!

    You have to template for 25% buff bonus. Highest absorbtion (potential) and AF (potential) also requires template (can I please see actual numbers?). Static tempest was given to them due to Minstrils being considered too powerful of a class (you also complained mightily then). Heretics received slight "buffs" to allow for a slightly wider array of spec options. PD9 requires RA rank to reach. RR5 requires realm rank to obtain.

    I don't think anyone can "see" anything except you blindly throwing out what you consider to be "facts" without any relevant data to support your claims.

    first thing i saw when i logged on was buggane obelix reubble appeared in hvaedrunr hill ...

    then i went oceanus and started fighting hibs there, rofl.
    Vicomtessa Muylasav, wildly swinging arms around. Vicomte Muylock, calling curses on enemies. Lord Muylaetrix, calling upon winter storms. some other chars with names starting with Muyl.
  • "Servers coming down for a bit to resolve a server crash!"

    Just had a guildy log in, port to Oceanus, and was able to target the NPCs and kill some albs.
    (Toa open to all realms would be fun. wouldn't it)?

    The Viking invasion is on !!!

    ...delayed, srvr down again. Back to the meadhall.

  • @Amp_Phetamine
    Stop trying to act like a noob dude....we both know any one can swap in stardrop or any other items for the self buff. And btw, my ticket is rr8+ so I know what the class is capable off. So I'm not blind. Secondly, why rank Garner's the Ras needed, we both know anything can be RR5 in a weekend if not one solid night. So again, I speak from experience.

    Heretics will have around 77 more AF after this patch, which is not the highest in the game. Try any Hib scale class with Enchanter AF buff up. And Warlocks get the same 33 absorb, and they have a baseline absorb, in a line with major heal, spread heal, group heal, DoTs that do thousands of cumulative damage, a group heal buff, instant PBAE hot, and all sorts of other nonsense I'm not going to bother to list.


    Yes, Heretics are a powerful class, but the rest of Alb is overshadowed after 10 years of Midgard whining instead of learning how to play the game.

  • Just going to throw it out there that "whining" isn't realm specific. I like the patch notes over all. Regarding class balance, I think providing a rationale explaining changes helps a lot in terms of having a meaningful discussion with the player base. The last Grab Bag did a good job with that and I hope it continues.

    Agree + 2
  • "Static Tempest’s stun duration on each pulse has been reduced from 3s to 2s. The frequency of each pulse remains once every 5s"

    Last minute change there. What feedback led to that I wonder?

    Thanks. I was hoping I could change my Celt hero into a mino but the cost is prohibitive.

    If this was PC I'd be taking a much different approach; however, please try to consider all of your own realms advantages before you blindly start throwing out non-factual, statistic-less paper DAoC complaints with absolutely no validity associated with them. It's getting to the point of spam complaining and I hope the mods would request a toning down.
