Barbarian - Ravager Changes

Dev Posts - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 15:25
Greetings, Here are the proposed changes for the Barbarian's Ravager tree. The Ravager has been updated to focus on blood rage, and as such the tree gives blood related abilities including the top ability to heal as the Ravager attacks foes. We've also moved some of the bonus damage to be force since there was no clear explanation or understanding of what creatures were affected by alignment based damage. (If you see "---" that means text was removed; likely a penalty or condition.) *Core abilities* Furious Rage: (1 AP, Level 1) When you are raging and miss your attack by rolling 1, you gain Fury for 6 seconds. Fury: +1 Rage bonus to attack and damage. This effect stacks up to 6 times and one stack fades every 6 seconds. Pain Touch: (1 AP, Level 3) Your melee attacks deal 1d6 extra damage. --- This damage triggers at most once per second. This damage scales with 100% Melee Power. Passive: You gain +10 healing amplification. Demoralizing Success: (1 AP, Level 6) When you score a vorpal hit in melee, you inflict Crushing Despair on nearby enemies for 30 seconds on a failed DC 20 Will saving throw. You then inflict Vulnerable Will for 15 seconds, regardless of the Crushing Despair saving throw. Passive: You gain +30 hit points and +10 healing amplification. Pain Touch: (1 AP, Level 12) Upgrades Pain Touch so your melee attacks deal 2d6 extra damage. This damage triggers at most once per second. This damage scales with 100% Melee Power. Passive: You gain +5 Magical Resistance Rating, +60 hit points and +20 healing amplification. Subsiding Fury: (1 AP, Level 18) When you use Barbarian Rage, you gain 3 stacks of Fury. Passive: You gain +5 Magical Resistance Rating, +100 hit points and +20 healing amplification. Visage of Terror: (1 AP, Level 20) Terrorize an enemy, killing them with fear if they fail a Will save vs 10 + Constitution modifier + half barbarian level. Enemies who make their saving throw are briefly paralyzed with fear instead. (Cost 1 Rage. Cooldown: 30 seconds. Passive: You gain +4 Constitution, +150 hit points and +40 healing amplification. *Tier One* Ritual Scarring: (1/1/1 AP) +[1/2/3] Intimidate, Haggle and Physical Resistance.

Barbarian - Occult Slayer Changes

Dev Posts - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 15:20
Greetings, Here are the proposed changes for the Barbarian's Occult Slayer tree for Update 24. The Occult Slayer is designed to mitigate magical damage while at the same time shutting down and eliminating foes that use magic against you. We've made the weapon bond easier to use; stacks are no longer removed when you switch weapons and they build much faster since the 1 second cooldown was removed. This faster stack building allows the Occult Slayer to spend these charges to heal or make big attacks. * Core abilities* *Bonded Weapons*: (1 AP, Barbarian Level 1). You build a psychic bond with your weapons. You strengthen this bond by damaging enemies with attacks. Each attack adds 1 to your weapon bond, up to a maximum of 200. Dying resets your weapon bond.

Passive: You gain +30 hit points and +10 healing amplification. Blank Thoughts: (1 AP, Barbarian Level 12) You gain the Slippery Mind feat and improve your barbarian damage reduction. Improve your barbarian damage reduction by +1. Passive: You gain +5 Magical Resistance Rating, +60 hit points and +20 healing amplification. Force Ward: (1 AP, Barbarian Level 18) You gain immunity to magic missiles and +5% Competence bonus to entirely avoid incoming Force damage. Improve your barbarian damage reduction by +1.

Mind Over Magic: (1 AP, Barbarian Level 20) You gain a bonus to your Spell Resistance equal to your Constitution score. Passive: You gain +4 Constitution. You gain +10 Magical Resistance Rating, +150 hit points and +40 healing amplification. *Tier One* Extend Rage: (1/1/1 AP) Your barbarian rage lasts [25/50/75]% longer.

Rank 3: If weapon bond is 180+: Ratings increase to +12. Lessons of Travel: (1/1/1 AP) +[2/4/6] energy resistance against Acid, Cold, Electric, Fire and Sonic damage. Antimagic Boost: (1/1/1 AP) Action Boost: +[2/4/6] Action Boost bonus to saving throws vs. magic (Cooldown: 30 seconds) *Tier Three* (Requires Barbarian Level 3, 10 APs spent in tree) Oath of Retribution: (2 AP) (Removed bond requirement) While you are below 50% health you gain +1 critical damage multiplier on attack rolls of 19-20. Lessons of Nature: (1/1/1 AP) You gain +[2/4/6] to save vs. both disease and poison. Rank 3: You don't fail disease or poison saving throws on a roll of 1. Arcane Encumbrance: (1/1/1 AP) When enemies damage you with spells, there's a [10/20/30]% chance they'll be knocked down. (Does not affect bosses.)

Barbarian - Frenzied Berserker Changes

Dev Posts - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 15:11
Greetings! This is the first in a series of posts outlining our plans for the update to Barbarians. The design behind these changes is that Barbarian DPS is largely in a good state, but they lack mitigation and healers don't like that they take so much healing. The idea behind these changes is to make Barbarians tougher through sheer hit point bonuses, give them enough healing amplification so healing them doesn't feel like a healing sink, and adding 5th tier healing to help sustain them during dungeons. Here are the proposed changes for Barbarian's Frenzied Berserker tree for Update 24.

Activate: You gain +1 melee damage. --- This damage bonus gains one stack every six seconds, up to 25 stacks. This ends when you are below 50% health. Activation Cost: 100 Hit Points. Cooldown: 3 minutes. Passive: You gain +4 Constitution. You gain +150 hit points and +40 healing amplification. *Tier One* Extra Rage: (1/1/1 AP). +1/+2/+3 Rage use per rest Cracking Attack: Melee Attack: Deals +1/+2/+3[W] extra damage.

---Quote (Originally by XxJFGxX)--- instead of the force ward that hasn't work since it was released in the tree. ---End Quote--- As far as our testing has determined, Force Ward (avoiding Force damage sometimes) works properly, but the feedback is unfortunately poor -- you don't get informed when the damage is avoided. This functions similarly to Shield Deflection. If there's something different that you believe is a problem, we are unaware of the issue or the details.

Thanks for the interesting feedback. We'd love to hear more feedback on the idea to preserve raid completions through the reincarnation process. Are there folks who would not want such a change? If it did happen, would you be more likely to raid while going through the heroic leveling process? Do you feel it would cause more folks to run raids at-level? How would you see your current play style change if completions were preserved?
