L38-39 scenario annoyance

So it's not a huge deal but it's definitely annoying: I decided to play a scenario on my L39 sorc; I got in and found... I couldn't mount up. What? It seems I had been debolstered to 37, so was unable to mount my L38 mount. Can I suggest either change the bolster to L38 or change the mount level for...

Re: Coordinated Strike nerf (WL)

people just don't want to have to be proactive in their gameplay to combat enemies' strengths If by that you mean people should just kill the pet - remind me what the cast time of re-summoning a pet is? 1s? So take the time to kill their pet and you've disabled their massive damage for... 1s. So th...

Re: Few infos about event's end and fort test.

>Is it possible to set up x2 on exp, rp, and medals for scenarios while last fort zone is active? +1 on this idea! It 1) doesn't mess with the campaign code and 2) gives extra rewards to people who don't want to do the fort. Heck, I'd be +1 on double xp/rr/etc for the whole rest of the server while ...

Re: FEEDBACK: AOE cap

Did you play with the change? Yes, while sieged in Caledor What career did you play with? Magus, L37 Is the change good as it is? Maybe. AoE is way more effect area-denial than it used to be. OTOH, I think it's caused a dps/heal imbalance. AFAIK there's only one actual AoE heal (Zealot, Leaping Alt...

Re: [Theorycrafting] Toughness is broken (or useless) for DoTs

Your numbers don't add up, because you don't understand how damage is calculated. Well, the point of this entire thread is that _no one_ does, or if they do it isn't common knowledge, so yes, you're correct. Specifically, I don't know how Toughness impacts damage calculations. You claim to, but you...

Re: [Theorycrafting] Toughness is broken (or useless) for DoTs

@Dabbart your numbers don't add up, even for an absolute measure. @Grimnur posted (summarized): Toughness 665. DD: Archmage's Radiant Lance hits you for 477 damage. (313 mitigated) DoT: Archmage's Law of Conductivity hits you for 322 damage. (29 mitigated) For total mitigation to be close to the sam...

Re: [Theorycrafting] Toughness is broken (or useless) for DoTs

@Grimbur could you run some tests to determine whether the mitigation is absolute (I think the tooltip over Toughness says something like '-XXXdps') or a percentage? If it's meant to be absolute, then I can see how it would have to be scaled against total DoT damage instead of per-tick. If it's a pe...

Re: [Theorycrafting] Toughness is broken (or useless) for DoTs

Thank you! I have heard many times "DoTs ignore toughness" but it's nice to have _actual data_. I truly appreciate your efforts!

Re: Malus

Maybe this has been tried before, but could malus be changed to 'reverse AAO' - a proportional reward debuff based on population? To a minimum of 1, of course, but the zerg would have to have more members than a kill is worth in RR for it to get to 1 _and_ higher level players (worth more RR) might ...

Re: Engineer damage

>Instead of saying "nerf class X" or "ability Y is broken" Why not saying: "Buff people up so they can learn how to play their classes properly?" My usual response is to say, "As class X, how do I survive an attack like Y by class Z?" That usually elicits _some_ help - but often the response is, "Ha...
