    Erm, I don't think you quite understand what's being mentioned here. On live, this will have no effect (as long as the account has the required amount of play time), because servers are past VoA, and will have all Vet AA's unlocked, this is really going to only affect TLP by making the ability available in alignment with when it would have unlocked in chronological fashion.

    The Paladin AA Rez Gift of Resurrection is a 90 rez they can use anytime, to include in combat to battle rez.

    The Paladin rez Restore Life is a 96 rez they can only use out of combat.

    So the big question now is, will the new Rank 2 Gift of Resurrection allow 96 rezzes even while in combat, or will it also carry the out of combat restriction?

    If it carries the restriction, this will force Paladins to either forego battle rezzing or waste a spell slot for a rez spell.

    It's either not working or 5% is far too low a percent.

    Currently working as a 96% in combat rez.
  5. Qbert Gallifreyan

    Not commenting one way or another on efficacy of the change, but none of the spells you listed are reflectable, which is a prerequisite for the ability to function in the first place.
  6. Allayna Augur

    Fair enough. That's my fault for not doing the back search on the DDs to find one that is reflected to test. Just went for a high DD frequency area of mobs.

    If the paladin rez being in-combat 96% on a 20 second refresh is intentional, I'd say the druids and shaman need a look at their in-combat rez abilities as well.

    Changes to Shadowknight's Reavers Bargain I and II didn't make the patch notes. Not sure if this is just housecleaning or something actually changed here.

    From EQ Resource:

    Reaver's Bargain I:
    - Slot 2 changed from 'Absorb Damage using Mana: 1%' to 'Absorb Damage using Mana: 100%'
    - Description changed from 'The Reaver's Bargain can be activated only if you are above 20% mana and endurance.
    Consumes 750 endurance per second to allow you to absorb 1% of incoming damage with your mana, protects against 75% of damage over 25000 points per strike for up to 1000000 total damage, and increases your unconscious health by 40000 points for 2m 30s (25 Ticks).

    Once started the Reaver's Bargain cannot be ended early and should your mana or endurance drop below 20% you will be overcome by Reaver's Exhaustion which ends the bargain and drains your remaining mana and endurance.' to 'The Reaver's Bargain can be activated only if you are above 20% mana and endurance.

    Since when did healing adept start to work on health of target target abilities? I thought it specifically didn't work on them because we aren't casting those directly, which was why paladins received glorious reflection, to increase healing from HOTT heals. I don't get how that ability is redundant, sounds more like they are just nerfing our hott healing for no reason.

    I find it hard to believe every single paladin over the last decade never noticed it was "not working".

    Shield of brilliance I'm meh about, because the devs have made almost every freaking spell over the last 5-10 years not able to reflect, and most things that matter unresistable, rendering SoB and Sanctification worthless.

    Identify AA was specifically put in for the CoTF quest, piecing together history.

    Not sure why I bother commenting, they will push it live without any changes because that is their pattern. Our feedback is immaterial. Like the Helix nerf.

    Not that I care about TLP, but didn't DoN come out right before the 6th eq anniversary, but vet rewards (including intensity) came out for the 5th anniversary? So why would it move from GoD (vet rewards came out like a month after gates was released) to DoN?
  10. Riou EQResource

    Right now I'm kinda thinking they just made the current test value / 100 to get a %, where before it was just raw %, so they can have finer control (like letting it be say 1.2% or 1.8% or w/e instead of just 1 or 2)

    If Glorious Reflection is indeed redundant with Healing Adept, then fine, but I am definitely skeptical.
  12. Allayna Augur


    It's still 1%.
  13. Beimeith Lord of the Game

    This is correct. It should be base1 / 100
  14. Froglok Augur

    I assume you mean on the test server?
  15. Aelen Augur


    Both are SPA 125 AA sources, so they don't stack. There's no difference between them aside from a target restriction applied to Glorious Reflection, so if Healing Adept didn't work, neither would Glorious Reflection.

    To test, remove your neck and any other variable source of SPA125 and test for non-crit values on a lowbie mob, and note that there's no variance in those values. The 10-12 on Glorious Reflection would result in 3 different possible values if it was working. I just did, it isn't.

    I also did the math for what stuff my little pally alt has,and Healing Adept is most certainly working on HoTT spells. Its been that way for a few years at least, at least as early as I started messing with pally heal math. Never saw it work any other way.

    Could you also please consider making Guild Hall Traveler (Visit your Guild Hall) an optional achievement? Currently Norrathian Explorer cannot be completed without joining a guild.

    I just checked glorious reflection on live, apparently it doesn't do anything. and healing adept does work fine soooo, meh.
  18. CrazyLarth Augur

    I think I used the Find AA for the Ros VP key quest "Scaled Key" to determin what drops I have and still needed sill but my Alt has a drop and that info is on the Lore tab now what one it is.
  19. Allayna Augur

    I posted in the test update thread, ya...?

    Shadowknight - Summon Remains now consumes 4 Tiny Jade Inlaid Coffins when cast.

    we have an aa to reduce the spell versions whats the point in charging us 210 plat to call a corpse?

    also i have done a few pulls w/ multi mobs the change seems way off. im going to parse the same pull a few more times but my average ropo % went from mid to high 40%s to low 20% and dodge only increase from 7 to 10 % so we are taking alot more damage. (full 1st set of mobs from darkness howls)
