    What balanced them was SP consumption, IMHO. Pre reaper sorcs have almost always been able to burst trash faster, but if you didn't want to wait 30 secs between packs, you had to be careful. Using...

    The vast majority of mechanics in Sharn (and the rest of the game) are far worse in melee range, and that includes movement and teleports; that is a hard fact. Mobs in sharn shoot, but they shoot...

    It is not rocked science, yet whenever a dev designs a new encounter, we always get the same thing. A mob that cleaves / drops mines/ knocksback / slows on melee range / has a breath attack on short...

    Well, clearly not. OP won't get helped, that I know. The general discussion over whether providing 0 support in hardcore mode is "fair" or not goes beyond him, though.

    They have been selling power for a long while. It is sad, but this game has little accomplishment integrity left.

    In my case, I play for a while, and often consume overpriced store options. I...

    I don't think that's a design goal, honestly. I do think that they are introducing mechanics to purposely slow down the pace, sometimes. But I feel that it has to do more with pacing the gameplay and...

    They most certainly are not. Specially once you consider the alternatives, and this is not a single player game. Of course, one could argue that we are over performing wrt content (at least lots of...

    Is this a bug or not?

    Typically, those lasers are always active and you can see the beam even when it doesn't connect to a mirror. However, this one didn't look active and then boom.

    The chain has a lot of obscure conditions to advance.

    I honestly don't understand the design of the quest.

    If you have killed everything anyway, what is the point holding up people by having...

    That’s not how it works.

    1. Melee is not doing more DPS. The only thing they are now somehow competitive at is sustained dPS. This matters, nowadays, mostly in raids. Outside of raids bosses are...

    Consider that non assassin melees get more damage from “main” than from procs. Assassin is a fairly unique case; I do know that ethereal is a fairly common choice, but still, relatively speaking,...

    You are right. Now, enjoy your infraction.

    It is not just INQ, though, it is a problem of grazing + fort massively reducing melee DPS. At this point, crits are dealing what, around 40-50% of the...

    For me, it set a bad precedent in allowing "cheat mode" in the game. It was the most imbalanced build of its time.

    Sure, centered kensei was ahead of other melees, but the margin over the rest...

    Pretty much. Monkcher was the very first cheat mode build. Instead of needing that and move on, we got massive boosts to power to the point that we needed a new rushed and unpolished difficulty...

    You are right. More than how to have another obviously BiS piece of gear, what we are missing is some discipline in loot design. Power levels should be gated by the difficulty of content, and the ML....

    There is a section for bug reports, but players rely on the general forums for it. This means that often, in discussing builds, we reference ancient public forum posts (clunky, inconvenient). At this...

    I have good news: Even without INQ, the Xbow meta in heroics is strong.

    It is quite obviously a design problem. Let s make reapers hit hard, but specially in melee range. Then, when they attempt...

    This is why it is always somehow imbalanced. Will not work if they just throw numbers at it, they need to make the underlying formula balanced.

    What
    Balance between races.
    Why
    Some old races (e.g. dwarf) have very pricey enhancements that may not have aged well.
    Solution
    Rework the AP costs, scaling of abilities, etc.

    You are right. The problem is that a sizeable group of the remaining players exclusively plays the META; they just TR into it and call it a day. Hence, balance doesn't really appeal to people that...

    It just isn't true anymore. I don't see any benchmark being used and, after the last pass to some casters and INQ, I have little faith that the devs intent to produce a balanced game.
