    No Reaver's Bargain/Champions Oath or other class balancing thingies?

    Not seeing a fix for Shadeweaver's Tangle rare mob placeholders having something like ten times the proper hit points.

    For the new items on Overseer (which I think are the power sources and group currency) how will those be available for TLPs? In-era? delayed? if so, by how much? Thanks!
  5. Strumph Augur

    While you're at it fix the Red Flaming Fist Ornament!
  6. Svann2 The Magnificent

    I dont know about the 10x, but they did half the hps to about 120M. (for L119)

    Does the overseer change to agent selection mean that it will auto select duplicate agents for conversion quests as it currently auto sorts for those quests based on quantity of agents?

    That's it! You're grounded!

    Go to your room and think about what you've done!

    And you've lost your coffee privileges!

    Same. I've been looking forward to testing out champions oath

    Based on a quick test on Test.... it seems so!
  11. Swiss Augur

    That seems a bit high for a t1 zone still, most others are 70-75m if I remember correctly. But a move in the right direction anyway.

    The cap on Heroic AA's does not appear to have been increased. What will happen to the awards obtained but did not increase the total because of the cap. Will the fix retrospectively increase the HAA's as to my knowledge you cannot go back and get the achievements again?
  14. Fenthen aka Rath

    So much of this is highly disappointing, especially the things that are missing from the patch notes.
    Where is all of the important stuff? Is the staff still out on holidays?

    Thankfully we get some new Shar Vahl newsletters, that was definitely a high priority item.

  15. Evilness Gnome warriors are the best warriors

    For a first patch post expansion launch, this is weak sauce.
  16. Warpeace Augur

    So, were a lot of things intentionally left out of this patch note or did they not make it?

    If you slap a fixed internally tag on things but has to wait for a full patch it should be listed here if going live next Wednesday.

    Wasn't that typical in CoV? I'd think everything would be 100+ at this point tbh.
  18. Angahran Augur

    Anyone happen to have a list of the items added ?

    Looks like power sources and some group currencies, and the fragment of alaran history.

    COV tier 1 trash was about 32M hp's. Tier 2 was about 42M hp's. The only trash in COV that was over 100M hp's was a dracoliche (122M) who was residing in Dragon Necropolis.

    These numbers are from Gamparse.
  20. Syylke_EMarr Augur

    From my quick scan, looks to be currency and powersources from pre-ToL, and the Fragment of Legendary Alaran History.
