4. Grandmaster of Flowers

Under investigation A Dance of Flowers is currently not working with Bows, even if the user has the Zen Archery Feat.

Well I hope that covers Improved Martial Arts too, because base dmg didn't get any higher with it no matter how long I kept shooting/testing. :\

Unfortunately, Improved Martial Arts, Dance of Flowers, and Combat Archery don't boost the weapon dice multiplier for bows. We are aware of this issue, and I apologize for the inconvenience. I know it seriously affects you, particularly if you have a moncher toon.

Thanks Squeek, Dev input is always appreciated

ummm...Squeak's post is from TODAY, honestly their rebuilding the entire enhancement system and ALOT of bugs have been squashed over the last few months I'd love to see this get fixed as well but there's also 100s of other bugs I'd like to see fixed as well as long as they keep fixing bugs their on the right track

At least a Dev has acknowledged that this bug is being looked at. The Quarterstaff not getting glancing blows from any of the cleaves has been broken much longer (in several threads), without a Dev response.

and thats not ok to be ignored like that neither is the threads about eveningstar challenge rewards or the xp unnerf that was supposed to happen to the cannith challenges or a laundry list of other things they avoid talking about.

I know this is nitpicky out of Squeak's response, but at no point did he say they are working on fixing it. I don't know if it's an expectations game, or what. There are a lot of bugs that have been around longer, and I am optimistic about the next update being great for bug repair, but I still felt like having the manager coming by at the restaurant to say, "Sir, I'm very sorry you were unhappy with your meal. I know it was not delicious, and I hope that your next meal is good" without offering a replacement or a refund or anything.

Can you get an arrow and stab it through the door or cubicle wall of whoever is responsible for fixing this? Do it while they're not looking so they get a bit worried about it.

People, can you PLEASE give more thought to what you name your builds? I mean come on, next thing you know there will be a Pally/Wizard build called the Wiz-in!

:D

To clarify the build name is Monkcher...as for Paladin/Wizard I made one he was called the "Bone Knight" although it didn't make it past paper as I realized I needed more feats so replaced the Pally levels with Fighter ones. luckily with EDs I'll be taking Unyielding Sentinel so I still get to have my Undead Paladin

Another fun name was the Barbearian Druid/Barb...which was awesome until I realized that the devs made the animal form abilities spells (so they cannot be used while raged) instead of just regular abilities cause apparently roaring and biting things are spells now...guess they should make cleave, power attack, great cleave, supreme cleave, improved trip, improved sunder and all those kinds of abilities spells now just to make things equal.

(angry at this one...also, Frenzy doesn't work in animal form)


...or the Bard/Barbarian/Druid.....Bardbearian......most likely a useless character, but it's got a funny name

This doesn't indicate whether there is any intent on your end to ever change this or not.

Also, on a related topic: Is there any intent to ever have Ki Strikes that work with non-unarmed monk weapons (ie., the kama) work with ranged Ki weapons (bows and shuriken)? How about Ki On Hit? Ki On Crit? You know...actually supporting the style that has been set-up as an option?

I was so sad when I ready wiki. Sucks though I didn't know that the archery epic feat was busted as well. For the martial arts I just took vorpal strikes instead.

Weapon die increase, either from Improved Martial Art feat (0.5W) or Dance of Flowers from GotF ED (0.5W by tier, three tiers).

Actually, I've tested it in live and Dance of Flowers does increase the die damage. It's only not displayed properly. Unless this is now broken again in Lamannia, and is tested by someone else, I'm going to keep assuming that Dance of Flowers is working with melee Ki weapons.

As for Improved Martial Arts, I can't test that at this time as I don't have enough Feat swapping hand ins to do the swap.

Well considering I have combat archery, improved martial arts, and dance of flowers on my archer, when they DO fix it, there will be a very noticeable +3W jump in damage.

I have a slight sneaky feeling that this won't be fixed for a while...

Could be quite a wait there.

Also note that the bugs were merely acknowledge as an "inconvenience," not as bugs, and no mention was made about ever intending to fix them.

Is there any timetable you can provide for how long we can expect before some or all of these are fixed? Even if it is not going to happen for a long time (which would be sad) I'd rather know then not so can plan accordingly.

When is Combat Archery going to be fixed to deliver the 1[W] for bows? It's been 6 months since you posted acknowledgement of the Combat Archery bug which has existed since MOTU's release.

I realize this is 3 years later... but A Dance of Flowers seems to work alone with a Short Sword at least. Improved Martial Arts does not work alone for Short Sword (or Kama). Did not try it together because I already traded the feat for something else.
Looking forward to the next fixing update.

Ya know, I found this thread when searching to see if Improved Martial Arts would affect my bow on my Monkcher. I thought "well, this was like 4 years ago, surely Turbine/Standing Stone has fixed this by now!"

LOL! I should have known. :)
