    Hope it's still impressively large, or capable of growing. I invested in this because of the size, and using the statue pet has been the most fun i've had all year!

    I had no idea this was happening. How often is it happening? What kind of DPS diff does it result in for berserkers?

    I mean, if it's happening 100% of the time, fixing it cuts the ability's DPS in half.

    On Vaniki server, a level 40 bard can't turn in the Onyx Drake Gut, Red Wurm Gut, Chromodrac Gut to Kelkim Menkia in South Karana

    Tried charming her

    It has always done it, it was supposed to be 3 hits. Was reported in TBM and not fixxed. This is a terrible time to fix this though with how bad zerkers are atm.

    let the pawn illusion bigger , just make it shrinkable...
  9. Slasher Augur

    I see casterquest is nerfing melee even more.
  10. Jogath Journeyman

    Will all new seasonal/event Overseer agents be recruitable / quested? Or are they be store bought only? Looking at you, Diablo Immortal. ;-)

    This please! Leave the pawn awesomely huge by default, just let it be shrinkable when it needs to be smaller.

    The /calendar in game showing the unlocks was missing dates/expansions.
  13. Dre. Augur

    Good choices, well done!

    Sounds like the most appropriate action is to fix the double-effect but double the damage. Or something. But don't just cut that damage and leave it be. =\

    Can we validate that Enraged Imp/Ireblind Imp will spawn in the current iteration of Fear( Version 1.0)? Based on previous TLPs, I believe this did not start until post Velious(Fear 2.0), so altering the level down to 36 is a little less useful if we do not see Fear 2.0 until Omens of War.

    ah right, thanks. Was hoping it was the updated/new rewards that have been mooted!

    When will the bugs be fixed in Overseer?

    You keep adding more to it, but I'm constantly gaining quests and occasionally losing them.

    nominated for most boring update of the year
  19. Metanis Bad Company


    Boring is good when you're implementing fixes! Although they still managed to nerf some melee classes so there is that!

    I'm a little confused about the Overseer stuff.

    Are they putting new agents in THIS month, or are they simply giving us advanced warning that new agents are coming NEXT month?
