This OP is full of Win!!!Here are a few reasons why I believe the developers intend to nerf everyone's classes in the upcoming enhancement pass:
- To reduce lag. Seriously, I know this sounds like a dumb one, but unfortunately, that is the case. More damage = more server load. In fact, I recall that when Two-Weapon fighting was nerfed slightly, it was to reduce server lag. This is a poor excuse to nerf us, really. It's like saying, "Yeah you can take a shower but you have to turn it off and on again every minute or else the showerhead clogs up." It's a poor workaround for a much bigger issue.
- To reduce power creep. Lets face it, there's a lot of it at low levels. It makes low and most mid-level content trivial, especially in groups.
Scaling makes for grouping more trivial than the enhancement pass... BTW its not easier in groups
- To add more challenge in normal and hard settings. People want a challenge at these settings, and Turbine is giving it to them - in the form of a nerf.
Time to go VIP
- To undo a mistake. This happens all too often. They give us power we believe to be good, and then they take it back because they feel it is 'overpowered'.
Its been like this since Alpha and Beta
Yes, I realize that the enhancement pass isn't final, but it certainly has a strong indication of nerfing our characters. And I know there are more reasons than these, these are all that I can think off.
A lot of toons are getting stronger, you might wanna check Lammania Live and not DDO Vault
Your thoughts or reasons?
