    Unfortunately you can complain all you want, until DBG starts losing money because people get sick of the crap they are doing they wont stop.

    For example, we used to have 4 raid berserkers, now we have 1 and a second who logs in rarely if at all. Seems they aren't playing but still paying because berserkers didn't get fixed either.

    i really want to beleive they dont do class balance based on numbers of suscribers of any class cause if not this is just pitiful. For me they are just completely disconnected by the reality of EQ.

    ----Proc Effect Stacking----

    I play a beastlord and I tried loading Spirit of Visoracius spell proc, epic 2.0 clicky proc, hobble of spirits AA proc, Mending Warder spell proc, Raid Tunic clicky proc, 2nd Spire of the Savage Lord and did a short parse.

    My test suggested that all of these procs did not proc an optimal number of times, like they would when used individually with just one effect at a time and not all at once.

    Maybe it is something else that prohibits pet procs from playing nice together or not, but I felt it was worth mentioning

    I tested the proc thing with SK, On a 15-20 min parse, I had touch of the cursed and shroud proc twice together. I had mental horror + one of the other 2, 3 times, never had a weapon proc at the same time as the others. Sadly I am not seeing this as beneficial as I was hoping.
  5. Hludwolf Developer

    The new logic takes the proc rate for each proc individually which could result in different results than you are expecting. It is possible that the proc rates for some are too low/too high, but the code looks to be working if you are seeing multiple at once.
  6. sojero Augur


    May I ask, during this code change was the proc rates effected? Seems from your comment they may have been, but I may be reading to much into it.

    Also, I was hoping it would help with some of the healing issues SK have had in the current expansion, this does help, just not as much as I was hoping, but something is better than being a mage.......
  7. Hludwolf Developer


    It is possible that some of them were in the data to compensate for this update. It is likely though that you would be used to seeing certain things proc all of the time that no longer will because everything has a chance to proc.
  8. sojero Augur


    Thank you for your honesty. Lots more logs to go through now.
  9. Zarakii Augur


    would hate to think these proc chances are not based off weapon procs bp clicks ect last night on test i seen literally 0% increase in overall procs. jumping on now to test more
  10. sojero Augur

    Minato, I recognize your name, you were on test last night when I jumped on. Hope my parsing didn't interfere with yours, tried to put the test dummy far enough away. I got the same results, no increase in overall procs.
  11. Zarakii Augur


    Haha so that was you huh yeah test put an e at the end on my name so im now a toe on test.... =( gonna be doing a lot of different testing today on live now since patch was done today but from what i can tell nothings changed (maybe bards will see a noticeable difference)


    So far i am noticing poisons are procing like they used to once again so thats a plus
  12. Silv Augur

    Soooo happy about the previously unmentioned Enchanter nerfs with this patch! Apparently one wasn't enough so lets go back 10 years to see what else we can change. Seriously, who is on the nerf rampage at DBG? It really is just becoming more and more miserable to log in after every patch.

    Someone who recently switched to a melee apparently. Watch them nerf casters to the ground, THEN improve melee stuffs..


    Hilarious, this company is totally hilarious.
  14. Brudal Augur

    Can you clarify what is changing on example one? We have been able to proc with a weapon and spell for quite a while based on other posts.

    SoD being shroud of death a buff proc, Totc being the aa based lifetap proc.

    edit: Is it a situation where "a player using the Bone Staff of Wickedness augmented with a Miniature Pick of Destruction and the buffs Spirit of the Puma and Spider's Bite Poison X, it is now possible for all four effects to proc independently each melee round? That was what I was expecting based on example two allowing casters to proc multiple sympathetic effects from a single spell.
  15. sojero Augur

    I realize now I was testing the wrong data. It looks like now you can have weapon + aug procs in same melee round and you can have bard song + shm proc go off on same round where you couldn't before. I checked an old log and you could have one of each go off in a round before.

    Melee are waiting for 1 year so dont be so optimistic. Until things are fixed melee are still clearly not better than trash mobs.
  17. Zarakii Augur



    sorry but no melee didnt get any improvment either
  18. Zarakii Augur



    Just test weapon/aug procs can fire at the same time and earlier when testing poison was procing like it used to i ran out of counters within like 15 minutes when it sometimes used to go the full 3 and a half hour course without using all the counters. will see how it all adds up later when i get a group going
  19. Brudal Augur

    It is a wash so far, add 250 dps from extra procs but lose 250 dps from using a lower damage with proc aug
