Its finally time! Thanks i TRed in advance with a SNB build and its been a pain lol.
This wil definetly be a turning point for DDO.I still think theres simply way too much power creep on this update, but im glad it was toned down considerably from the first proposals.

I just want to cry. The game I have loved for years has been utterly destroyed. Whoever thought Pale Masters should be the new top melee should have their head examined. I guess I will come have a look in a few months and see is this Harper mess has been addressed. As it is now I have no desire to play this game that no longer resembles Dungeons & Dragons in the slightest.

I dont know about PM being the top melee now, but it sure killed off the Wizard class already, okay i know that some Warforged players also take wizard levels...and then they go play it as a Shirady sorcerer.

Whoever is in charge of spell and active ability cooldowns also need a break,
really there should be a global pass on cooldowns silly-OP abilities are on 6-8s cooldowns, meager cc, and utility stuff is on 15-60s... etc

Are there any plans on giving Pallys a lesser heart and/or feat respecs? Since the enhancement cleaves share the cooldown with the cleave feats its pointless to have both.

Anyway really like the new KoC tree and melee changes.

Hello Cordovan. I am confused about a detail on release notes.
`Remaining unconsumed Saga XP gems (and other items that should be automatically consumed, such as Guild Renown and Astral Shard purchases) will automatically be consumed when a character with them in their inventory first logs in.`
I am confused about the way its getting fixed. Why it is gonna be automatically consumed when first time log in instead log out (because of xp cap they will be just gone, so maybe better to give some time to players)? If this is the best way to fix it, why not warning ppl to prepared for that before the update? Because I spent a lot of time to collect them, and also spent a lot of shards to upgrade reward since the XP/inventory space rate is problematic. And I sincerely checked if there is an anouncement that says `not to do it` or etc.
I am wondering not because I believe devs have to do it, but I believe its a part of sincerety of producer-customer.
Thank you

The destiny's innate abilities each provide a passive and cumulative 5 Melee Power.


Fury of the Wild and Legendary Dreadnought grants +3 Melee Power per Innate Ability.

So... which one is it?


Two Handed Fighting: Increases the damage of glancing blow attacks when wielding a two-handed weapon by 10% (from a base of 20% normal weapon damage.) This feat also grants a 3% chance for weapon effects to trigger on glancing blows. While fighting with a two-handed weapon you gain a +3 Combat Style bonus to Melee Power.
Improved Two Handed Fighting: Increases the damage of glancing blow attacks when wielding a two-handed weapon by an additional 10%, for a total of 40%. Also increases the chance for weapon effects to trigger on glancing blows by an additional 3% for a total of 6%. Your Combat Style bonus to Melee Power is increased by +3.
Greater Two Handed Fighting: The Greater Two Handed Fighting feat adds a glancing blow to your attack sequence, and increases the damage of glancing blow attacks when wielding a two-handed weapon by an additional 10% for a total of 50%. Also increases the chance for weapon effects to trigger on glancing blows by an additional 3% for a total of 9%. Your Combat Style bonus to Melee Power is increased by +4...


... to a total of +20

So... which one is it? 3+3+4=10, or 20?

(and more importantly, what else is incorrect?)

Looks like an older Lamannia note slipped in. Should be +3 Melee Power, and a total of 10 for the Two Handed Fighting line. Corrected.

When I logged in on my fighter, all of his enhancement points were refunded.

Thanks, that's good. But I'm curious specifically about the new cleave enhancements for Pallys. As a feat starved class, this helps, but not if I have already taken the cleave/great cleave feats. I need a couple of feat respec tokens or something similar.

I understand what you say, but lets not forget that Cordovan warned about this upcoming change at least a month (could be 2) ago already, exactly for the reasons you give - meaning everyone has already had time to consume them and distribute them to the characters they want them to be used on.

I don't speak for Turbine, but personally I don't feel it is incumbent upon them to provide free respecs every time they make a change. There are numerous ways in game and through the DDO store to respect feats (or other abilities).

Well that's nice, neither do I, but my question wasn't "What is everyone's opinion". There has been past precedents wherein they did offer ways to respec a character when updates have affected (in a significant way) builds. I was wondering if they (Turbine) were doing something similar this time. According to one poster (I am not able to get in-game until tonight) the enhancements were reset. That's good, but I would like to trade in my two feats if possible, without using my one free one and paying for a second one.

By the way, I support the game as a VIP (for 4 years now) and buy the expansion packs, and occasionally make extra purchases as well. Also I pay for extras on my son's premium account. So I don't feel like I am asking for too much when I ask for a couple of feat exchanges due to the game changes.
