    /mourn the DOT changes and retuning

    Rescaling the healing is great though

    Hello, Hludwolf. Would you happen to have an estimate as to when these changes will be deployed to the production/live servers?

    I did a Vex Thal instance last night while 6 boxing. The zone booted me after 6 hours, and all my characters got dumped to character select with 'zone down' boxes. When I tried to log in several hours later, they all had no characters at character select. Waiting a long time never brought them up. Another account I have that I was not using earlier loads characters fine.

    Unfortunately this is a known bug, and if my understanding is correct a fix is in the works.

    All agent of change Dynamic Zones (expeditions) will bug any character who joins the DZ in this way - they don't need to zone in, only be a part of the expedition. It takes a server restart/patch for them to reappear.

    We've been getting a lot of those lately though, so you likely won't have to wait long.

    I've been doing my best to warn people away from using AoC's on Test, but I can't spam general chat with it all day long, and not everyone reads the server MOTD (which had a warning in it regarding this the other day). I also put a warning in the PB guild MOTD, but about half the active population isn't in the guild.

    Loving the classic dru / sham heals. Getting ready for that next real progression!

    can we get ride of mercs please io dont mind boxers well to a pint but why cant we go bak to the old days whewre u grouped guess people dont like that part
  9. ~Mills~ Augur

    Seriously wtf is going on with dots. You guys nerfed necros going on 5 months now with the promise of dot revamps. Then when it comes time for the last few classes its like you stopped working on it and suddenly are revamping or adjusting 3 other things, as if its on the back burner or your done.

    Nothing in June or the two patches in July so far. Its time for the TLP server soon and then designing a content release.

    doomcasters, don't you think it's enough to express your misinformed personal opinion about what other classes should be able to do in the discussion sections? Do you have to take your contempt to the Updates/Announcements as well?

    And utterly useless in group content? Seems a bit harsh.

    People can test upcoming Phinny changes on Test too, right? And Luclin is there now for testing?

    I was wondering if anyone could report what the time per AA in a normal exp camp looked like, if anyone had bothered.

    If this is the wrong place to ask, sorry! Please let me know where I should ask (if a place exists) and I'll move my post.
  13. --Voodoo-- Augur

    That would not be an accurate test. Test server has an exp bonus, and also the low AA bonus. Plus, doesn't Phinny have special exp rules as well? We get some of the TLP features, but not all of them.
  14. Brumans Augur

    Ah, gotcha. I assumed there were multiple Test servers or something to represent the various server configurations. Guess we just gotta wait until it launches then. Thanks!
