    Default Sting of the Ninja nerf: DEATH of thrower builds!

    Wow, just wow! This was the only thing making a thrower viable (even then only against poison immune mobs) and you officially KILLED it! What a bozo move!


    If you seriously thought the damage was too high, why not reduce it instead? Lets keep in mind here that shuriken users have no way to bypass most of the DR mobs have, or what they would do against poison immune mobs. Reduce the damage of ninja poison if you have too, but make it work against ALL mobs!


    Use your head Devs!


    P.S. honestly what is the new named shuriken good for? Fighting zombies and wraiths? (But not Shellie's due to DR). What a piece of utter crapola!

    By making it on crit its nerfed by 90% with improved crit, 80% if 20 monk with ninja spy capstone. Also NO CHANGE against poison immune mobs. This is probably the BIGGEST single nerf in ddo history.


    Go kill some mobs with shuriken Devs, I freakin DARE you now.

    Seems like sting of the ninja is now completely broken. I can't seem to build up any stacks at all on my shuriken build. Even with the on-crit change it was still useful against bosses as the damage was a nice DoT once you got the ninja poison stacks to 20.

    Anyone know what's going on? Is it bugged or was there a further nerf I don't know about?

    I have tested this on life and on Lamannia and found out that it only seems NOT to work with named shuriken (Greensteel, Spelltouched, Shadow Star, Snowstar). Random loot shuriken seem to work fine. This is a bug that was introduced with update 21 when they changed something with throwing weapons. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

    Master's Blitz won't build either when you kill a worthy opponent, seems the increment thing is busted?

    Oh noes! Stuff is broken on the TESTING server... So it looks like they ARE testing their game...

    Guys, report the bugs, don't be so negative.

    If it makes it to live, then you can complain.

    Actually the bug with Sting of the Ninja is already on the live servers. It was introduced with U21.
