    Actually expected this sooner along with the druid/shaman dot nerfs. Cant say its not deserved especially in the case of the Mind Tempest line.

    Yikes neutered. What a bummer. It's been nice getting something out of chanters since there hasn't been more than a handful of raids with any need to cc in recent EQ.
    It's also been nice having chanters logging in. This is yet another heavy handed nerf when a smaller adjustment would have sufficed.
    Needs to be reconsidered.

    Absolute joke.

    We gonna get any meaningful CC raids or we just gonna continue another 3 or 4 years this way?

    Even though I know this is probably reasonable for balancing, it still feels bad. I got my chanter 110 and most important aa, was planning to pl another one so I can xfer him to another server to play with some friends, now I feel lazy.
  9. Brohg Augur

    The mana return nerf feels especially savage. The dot already had to last at least half a minute to have a chance of payback, now it just totally can't pay back ever. What even is the dot now, why even have the mana return? This happened to the necro mana-impacting dot too, just totally lost identity and became another random damage spell.

    maybe they can randomize it like hot-zones where damages on spells and weapons randomly move each month +- 50 to 200% :)

    hey now, don't give them any ideas :p

    Judge swings a good bat not as good as EQ Devs swing the nerf bat apparently.

    I am boxing 4 toons since many years .....................

    shaman ------->>> got huge nerfs on dots

    druid -------->>> got huge nerfs on dots

    chanter ------>>> we will see how big the dot nerfs

    mage -------------->>> ( I guess they are the next? to be nerfed ).

    I guess I will need to get use to kill much slower after all the nerfs. :mad:
  14. IblisTheMage Augur

    The pattern has been to overnerf, have a month of heated debate, then partially de-nerf, leaving the imvolved parties with some sense of improvement, leading to acceptance, then it becomes the new normal. Either by chance, or by design, this seems to work.

    The 9 second recast on mind tempest seems like the big mistake to me. The rest would have been plenty.

    Ouch my poor enchanter alt. Was great while it lasted - hope they partially peel back on these very heavy handed nerfs.

    CC's easy. We just tank it and make the chanters totallly irrelevant.
