Is Mental getting updated in the NEXT update?

    I see that sorcery and Earth just got buffs, I feel like the Mental players have stated their issues for way longer. I see that Earth makes a thread a week ago and they get their much needed buffs in the next update.

    Please tell us if there's any plans to give Mental its much needed adjustments.

    Earth, fire, and mental definitely need to be looked at.

    Can pigs fly? Or has hell frozen over?

    Technically Fire has been waiting longer just like Earth and Sorcery had been waiting longer. I really wish it was Mental, but I can understand Fire likely getting looked at first.

    Depends on what the developers are gonna look at. Just being honest.

    The secret society will be pushing torwards Fire updates next, then mental. Hopefully they update mental along with fire in GU48

    I think they are too mesmerized by how awesome Quantum is....

    How is it possible that over a year ago the devs started down this road towards Weapon mastery and 'balanced' powers and we are seemingly no closer to it. I've finally come to acknowledge that everything in DCUO is temporary by design.

    I hope they sort telekinesis out.

    Telekinesis should have been the heart of the Am for tk side. Were form changing aka hysteria or illusory form should been the heart of the Am for illusion tree.

    Not to sound rude or anything but if you think that Earth players have only been waiting a couple of weeks for these small fixes then you haven't been paying attention. Literally right after Earth's last update, which was ages ago, people realized that Earth was still kinda bad and was still falling behind other powers. We've been patiently waiting (some of us not so patiently) for every other power to get updated, hoping that once all powers had an AM that Earth would get a second look. And the changes revealed today are not at all what we've been hoping for. They're a decent start, but that's all.

    Which I'm ok with, personally, because I believe that more changes are on the way. The devs are just extra busy right now with all these big gameplay changes. But, while I agree that Mental needs some more work as well, as does Fire, I think they need to wait until Earth and Sorcery get a proper update. Earth players waited longer than anyone for that first update, which was disappointing for a lot of us, and have been waiting ever since to finally be made "good." Good enough that maybe Earth players might one day make up more than 3% of the population.

    They just buffed weaponization for GU47 on test, so Telekinesis indirectly got buffed. The superstrength Iconic passive also got a buff too.

    I was thinking more about having telekinesis make use of a wider variety of objects.

    Currently, it's just cars, barrels and certain types of crate. Which makes telekinesis less effective than it could be.

    i like the telekinesis idea.

    i wish we could get some kind of insight as to why things were changed the way they were. The entire way mentals mechanic seems to be set up is counter productive to the concept of dps'ing.

    Before the change Psychic rez wasnt a "must have" power but it had its uses in both roles. Now its a completely useless move that does nothing but set the mechanic up without causing any damage or providing any kind of benefit. You have to question whoever thought it would be a good idea to make it a weak healing move. It doesn't even heal you for any substantial amount of health. You get a few tics of a couple hundred. In top tier content I have sidekicks, supply drops and colers when I'm dps'ing. If I'm running challenging solo conent I can spec into Granduer, Bastion, and a couple of other shields to keep me safe. We dont need a weak healing power that causes zero damage as the crux of our "awesome mechanic". It would have made some sense if Psychic Rez remain the way it was with a wide arc of okay damage and a group stun to get the chain rolling.

    Whats really upsetting about this is that I knew this was going to happen even months before the changes were made. Players tested the changes, gave feedback, gave a lot of negative feedback and nobody paid attention and just went a head and did it anyway despite all of that negative feedback.

    I could really use some advice on how to go about using this "awesome mechanic" to be an effectiive dps once again.

    The Earth community have Spytle to tell them how Earth was intended to be, I really hope whoever that person is to please tell us what is the intended mechanic for Mental?

    Earth got a buff nothing more, if the Dev's follow the same logic Mental will get a buff but will still have the same boring mechanic with all messed up powers and will keep Mass Hysteria, Rerflect Pain, Bolt Barrage, etc as they are right now so i don't see it could help us.

    They could easily do what they did with celestial and include all the powers to the AM.
    Celestial I think it's just the execute is the only damaging power that isn't included. There's even a supercharge that's part of the AM.
    Including 90% of the superpowers of a power is definitely in the realm of possibility.

    As proven by Quantum, an AM doesn't need a long range and a short range finisher and a power back power separated, it all could be in 1 power like Time Bomb. That just freed up 2 powers so the devs can play with those too.

    A week ago!? Mate you've got no idea how long (before the first AM update even).
    Not even the "much needed buffs" we were hoping for.
