    Isn't Icy Keep a Frostfell zone? Do you mean Icy Dig?

    3 Months of KoS?
    Had a lvll 70 in KoS and all the players left. Don't see much in the way of changing apart from caving into the raiders so they can get easy OP gear.
    No PvP vendor, no fixes. Nothing

    Can't believe they keep wasting ressources on this Nagafen thing.

    Any word on whether or not taunt immunity abilities will be fixed (Deathmarch, Sanctuary, etc.)?

    This may affect my choice on character selection, so was just curious.

    EXCELLENT news on PVP! No pots and lower xp gain will make ppl tun all zones. BUT:

    NOW PLS CONFIRM NO WIPE OF SERVER, so that you unlock Nizara and RoK instead!

    How long will Kaladim be on DoF before KoS is opened?
  13. Zlith Member

    I would say likely 16 weeks, as it was in the FAQ at server launch that expansions would be released every 16 weeks with mid content at 8 weeks (no mid content for DoF other the Hunters quests). Would put KoS release estimated on October 29th. There has been no indication from DBG that DoF would be on a shorter release.

    I am really disappointed that the only balancing for tank classes is, "Crusader heals have been reduced in PvP combat.". I guess the 5 Paladins playing on Nagafen 2 was too many? What about the non-crusader tanks? I really wish we could have had a short beta to test changes and provide feedback before launch.

    Also remembered... What about classes who rely on CC, are durations longer now? And if you increase scout dps and nerf heals, scouts will rule whole game? Only issue was with druids being able outheal anyone, but shamans for example need boost instead of nerfing. Please make beta as Ishtara said with character buffer so we can test out 1v1s

    Any gear balance changes for Naggy 2.0 and Kaladim?

    I like the titles for *unique* kills. Hopefully this cuts way down on the alt/guildie farming and buying/selling of fame.

    No XP pots in the shop this time, hooray! So I take it there will be several upper management suits gagged and straight-jacketed in office closets during this season, or at least until week 6 when the L70 baubles hit the shop. Still, it means 6 weeks of PvP fun in various tiers before most people pay their way to cap.

    I hate level locking in general because of the "twinked walls of power" that usually erupt from them, but there isn't that much gear or time for that with 3 month seasonal wipes. Maybe locking will keep some players around in various tiers (instead of in the cash shop buying capped characters).

    If every sub-cap tier empties out once the L70 cash shop baubles hit, those not wanting to purchase Pay to Win 70s can just cancel their subs and not pay for the final month. I'll bet the SC 70s are $35 like heroic characters are; maybe between the high cost and the "only 6 weeks left til shutdown" reality of buying them, not that many players will bother with them.

    Have they balanced the summoner class on Kaladim yet? Both the necromancer and conjurer are very OP in the beginning of the server with whole guilds running them.
  18. Zenji Well-Known Member

    Summoners classes always have started out strong, it wasn't new to Kaladim. Yes they still solo well, yes they still DPS well. Conjuror's pet did get an undocumented nerf a couple months back on Kaladim.

    These look like pretty good changes if you ask me. I am pretty excited about season 2 now.

    Just one suggestion is they should disable the API that gives out character locations to 3rd party websites on this server. The challenge of PvP is not know where your opponent is. Who gets the jump on who determines the outcome of a lot of fights. People using those 3rd party websites to track players leads to balance issues. Not seen anyone really talk about this yet.
