    Default *** So Favored Soul lost the Protection tree?

    So did we lose the Protection tree or am I missing something? I had almost all of my points spent in that tree. It had been a big help both in my solo and group play. Why did they get rid of it?

    It was revamped into a different tree called Warpriest, which Favoured Souls do get. I'm not sure how much of what you like will have survived the transition, but Warpriest's a pretty decent tree.

    Everybody lost the Abortion tree. It was the most despised tree, and needed to be removed, as if Turbine had listened it would never had left alpha stage.

    I'm sorry for your loss.
    The tree was replaced by the Warpriest tree, some of the things are identical to the abortion tree, others are different.
    This change was made with Patch 2 and had been announced at the time U19 was released, Clerics and Favored Souls got that change.
    On G-Land : Flavilandile, Blacklock, Yaelle, Millishande, Larilandile, Gildalinde, Tenalafel, and many other...

    Just like **** Erectus, Protection Tree was replaced by a superior spiece.

    I'm finding some of it here and there. What seems to be gone:

    Enhanced Sanctuary
    Death Pact
    Shield Other
    Command
    Grant Energy Resistance
    Efficient Metamagic
    Trapfinding
    Prayer
    Grant Armor
    Alert
    Light Guard
    Cautious
    Dodge Elements

    Loosing some of those really hurts. Found that they moved Blur which was a big one. Its only 20% but free and I could place it on others as a bonus. I was surprised how much a difference it did make combined with other spells I used.

    Edit: It looks like the AC bonuses may still be there.

    Simple: the devs hate divines. They felt the pressure during the enhancement preview, so they created Warpriest, but they couldn't just let us have more options, so they stole Protection away.


    See also:
    - Clr/FvS spells implemented in the game but not given to Clr/FvS
    - spell augmentation only for Wiz/Sor spells
    - the whole "fractional spellpower" fiasco
    - years later, still no Dismiss Charm feat
    - since launch, still no Cleric domains, a basic class feature

    Blur is still there in the core line, needs 20AP spent & 12 levels...and hey when you get 18, now you can cast haste too
    I don't mean to come across as unsympathetic - but I am, so I do.

    Plus to fire and light when I use 1 fire and 1 light spell. When healing and type less are my main spells. You already got fire and light through Angel of Vengeance.

    Edit: I should say Positive Energy. Couldn't think of the right name for it.

    Read it wrong they kept the group energy resistance, but lost the bonus personal. I think that actually sucks more.

    Thank you ignorant masses. That tree was supremely craptacular. I'm sad that it couldn't be fixed, but since it couldn't be fixed, then I'm glad it's gone.
    No one in the world ever gets what they want
    And that is beautiful
    Everybody dies frustrated and sad
    And that is beautiful
