    I'm not a sweaty try hard, so I will not speak to all that. But, it IS a lot off fun to use, IMO.

    Hey Ranmura :)

    Was it just a typo not adding the tank pull & stun for strength of Hercules? I understand that was a LOT to write.
  4. YummyFishsticks New Player

    Could we get an artifact that buffs stats and heals while giving us the body type of shazam for a bit?
  5. Mr.W Committed Player

    I noticed that the strength of Hercules still lunges healers doesn't give any heals

    & I haven't noticed Zeus giving any heals even after being cycled past the Achilles.
  6. Rejchadar Inquisitor

    I don't know if this is the case on the live server (because there were additional internal patches on the live server), but on the test server if you use the "Heart of Isis" and "Pied Pieper"s Flute" artifacts together, then you will get a bug like in my video:

    Level 200 Heart of Isis and still only getting buffed for 10% instead of 20 , also not getting any buffs to precision

    Does the Shazam! supercharge show up for everyone? It doesn't for me, and I've been using Word of Power since before I got the artifact. Or do you need a certain level or CR to gain access to it? Does the artifact have to be upgraded to a certain level? I do have the pied piper flute as well but it hasn't caused any problems for me - probably because I don't have access to the Shazam! supercharge. Is the supercharge itself for subbed members only? Do artifacts have to be equipped in a certain order in the slots? I also have the tetrahedon artifact equipped, if that matters.

    I have Heart of Isis on two characters (ranks 119 and 110) and both have Word of Power unlocked. Every time I start the game with one of those characters (or switch to him), the SHAZAM! ability is missing from their loadout (and using the armory doesn't restore it - I have to manually drag it back into the loadout every time). Why doesn't it stick in place?

    Make sure when imprinting your armory you have the letter s . If u have it imprinted with any other letter it wont fall into place when switching armory
