    Default No Dev response for Clerics/Divines?

    Should we be concerned that so far there has not been a Dev response to the unhappiness or even the rare happiness about the Divine enhancements? Other classes have received responses.

    I'm guessing they're in agreement with the assessment that "clerics are now hjealbots"?

    I wouldn't be concerned.

    I"m willing to bet they got alot more feedback for this class then the others. No response could very well mean that they are just busy with actually reading teh data and/or making changes.

    I'd say that's accurate, based on past nerfs and comments.

    Rather than going through the effort of simply coding all divines out of existence, Turbine instead had just made them steadily more unplayable so that nobody would actually do it.

    There won't be any responses.

    I am getting a bit concerned, too.

    Hi,

    I've been wondering at the point of this too.

    The problem is, we've had an incomplete system released to us with vague promises about how things will certainly different at the end. Just not what the differences will be.

    How about releasing something which is as close as possible, design-wise, to how you think things should be? Even if it's riddled with bugs, we would see something a lot closer to the final picture. I think what we have now is the illusion of consultation.

    It would also be really nice to get some specific commentary on the design goals of these changes. I am having a very hard time working out whether some of the problems we are seeing are result of an intentional design decisions or accidents from an incomplete system. Some of the reasoning behind the new system would be very useful, and also very revealing.

    Thanks.

    Maybe concerning, but certainly not surprising.
    This is par for the course for a round of Llama-Land. The Alpha label is just a snow job, and is unlikley to go any differently then we've seen from previous Lamannia outings. Faux alpha or not.


    I'd say it's time to start dusting off the Charlie Brown pic, but it hardly gets a break these days.

    Even if we get a "dev" response, it will mostly likely be from one of the QA guys, rather than the people actually making the design decisions.

    There likely will not be a dev response. Cromix, my Cleric will be tr'ing into a class that's actually playable. Depending on what they do with FvS, there may be two others. Perhaps not though. It's pretty damn easy to build a fighting, self healing, one and tell upset melee - I used to not mind healing you, now it isn't fun because it's the only viable option I given. Congrats, and don't forget to buy your ddo store pots.

    I am willing to wait until they release he enhancement pass to all so we cfan build or attempt to build multi-class toons. If they keep with what we have I will work to get the clerics I have to 20 and stash a True heart on each, as I if Ineed a hire I will just get one to heal me.

    My test from 1 to 20 played the same to level 9, but it is getting hard to keep it going.

    What would they say..

    Yes, you are right we only threw together the Nanny version of the cleric domain and made up some BS Protection domain because we didn't spend any time developing the Battle Casters and War Priests..

    Sure we promised 3 domains but we were not serious, we just said that to get you off our backs for a year or so.

    The whole multiple tree enhancment thing doesn't work but we have spent too much time and resources trying to make it work that we have to force it into the game anyway.

    But don't worry we will fix it later in some future update.. (points behind you ..)hey look someone is talking about the level 28 cap raise coming this summer....( and poof disappears from sight...)

    LOL
    Man, those devs sure are foxy!

    (sorry for the thread hijack)
    There is a cap raise to L28?
    Where are the quests for the xp? Now that my L25 has farmed everything into the ground? Where do I get the xp from?

    This is very much off topic but when you "farm" a quest at level 25 you do not increment the repeat counter. Thus it's very likely you have several quests that are currently in the game that you could run for experience to level from 25-26. Either way, the cap raise is coming with a new expansion, which will undoubtedly include enough quests and xp to get from 25-28.

    Thanks for the reassurance!
