Sometimes it feels like it's ages...
Mobs aren't suddenly going to see through FD from what has been stated here.
EXACTLY. Fling and fade are only overused because they're the ONLY THINGS STILL WORKING. I wish I had a pulling tool other than fling or fade that worked as intended on level appropriate mobs that it should work on. I really think you should walk this back and get feedback from everyone who you intend to be pullers. Like the Thulisaur mission - it's a guaranteed deathtrap for some pullers without fling and fade, only because the mobs are immune to EVERYTHING. They're set as yellow on purpose so lull doesn't work, they're randomly runspeed immune, so one of my usual tactics is to fling one and run them down until flusterbolt memblurs that one, and they're Selo's speed.
In that case can wizzys get an update to their agro reduction spells and AA's that we were told we couldn't have as we had fade. I jump in my hole to reduce agro when getting high on the agro list, if fade isn't going to work anymore we need upgrades to our other abilities.
As fade isn't going to work the way is has in the past can we get the AA refunded? Exodus is going to be far more effective that fade now.
Please don't tell me that many things "waiting for code" or not possible "because of code" have been ignored to screw around with making pulling more meaningful.
any chance you will be adding a 2nd mercenary available to players? I have trouble finding groups and would pay extra to have a 2nd merc up at the same time. ((I am not skilled enough to box)) Please if your not working on that please think about it.
We are at 105 levels now and Fading Memories AA came in with the Planes of Power expansion back in 2002, and after 13 years and suddenly you feel the need to fix it ??
Since Fading has been the same way for years and has become the "norm" (regardless if it was how originally intended). Now all of a sudden your putting pulling bards into a new learning transition that they need to learn how to pull all over again.
"By adding challenge back into the pulling game we can allow skilled players to once again separate themselves from the unskilled"
Trust me, there has always been a significant difference between a skilled bard player and a non skilled one. It is very noticeable! The skilled ones don't mess up and rely solely on fading as often as the unskilled ones.
If I played a bard, I would be not happy to say the least.
If I am reading correctly, the fade part (agro reduction) still will work on A hole in space, it is the invis part that wont if you are within the 30 feet. So you still have your agro reducer, you just cant do a fade and invis within the 30 feet of a mob that is on your agro list.
my one thing... PLEASE stop the nerfs already do something productive like making shadow pets so a million bard pets on arx3 dont lag some people out to the point they cant even turn!
I agree that many pulling tools have been made ineffective and should have been dealt with at the same time or before the pulling changes.
RIP berserker endurance on raids
lol i just told my guild Boost dps and nerf jolts... Winning!
if its still the same as when my zerk was my main and there jolts suck as is yeah i feel bad for you guys
Will the stacking issues Ancestral Memories had with player made potions like Alliance Elixir and Arx Mentis Medicine no longer apply?

If so, that would be nice for melee that use a lot of endurance.
...making the expansion mentioned in the other announcement today?
May not like the fade change, but doesn't mean they're not being productive. They're plenty busy and with less staff.
its not about liking or disliking the fade changes but IF it is how im reading it this will effect every class that gains aggro a lot also not just pullers so i would say thats a pretty hard nerf
I guess I might be missing something but zerker fade should still work enough to drop them out of combat so you can hit rest and then go back in. Raid mobs always saw through invis anyhow.
It looks like its just the invis portion is changing if I am reading this correctly.
For berserkers it only works on mobs 2 levels higher now and at 30 feet away
Or if 30 feet away will drop you regardless of mob lvl still not sure
except it will now only work on yellow con mobs, last time I looked raid mobs were red.
Please don't go through with these fade level cap changes. You guys haven't thought this through very well.
