    This is a bit off topic, but there's been many threads in the past on improving the purchasable Heroic Past Life Feats. Improving the Paladin and Ranger past life feats so they are useful to Paladins and Rangers (currently they aren't). Most prerequisites have been removed from the game yet some still exist, so Sorc and Bard past life feats could be treated as Mental Toughness and Spell Focus: Enchantment respectively. There have been several other suggests over the years to make these feats more desirable since they take up feat slots. I guess it's too much asking for these to be revisited sometime.

    Makes sense. Most active heroic PL feats aren't worth wasting a feat on.

    Default Irconic TR bug.

    bug - iconic TR - had several lv15 boxes of gear suddenly swap to being starter bags (blue, green, red). kinda funny if you ask me - but something to look at.

    PDK- I don't see myself using much, but might pick it up on a TR train. 9PRR is nice at least

    Morning Lord: First thought was my FvS is gonna need 3 of these. passive could afford to be USP without being too strong i think.

    Shadarkai- Passive is great, toggle is meh. Instead of this, how about something like : +5/10/15 to move silently and hide? Or something akin to the ranger's hiding in plain sight? might be situational, but i know there are times when I'd like to stealth

    Bladeforged: passive and active are both good here.

    It seems to me that reading the forums can be like consuming a wisdom tome.
    Someone got it wrong. Everyone expected the Spanish Inquisition because they were required to give 30 days notice, by law.
    I can be found on Orien. My more active toons are Cilon, Solstone in Your Pack, and sometimes Acroyer.

    Understatement of the year. The only decently powered one is the Wiz past life active feat.

    Thank you.
    By the way we would like the completionist feat to be autogranted?


    I hope that means the possible epic completionist for fourth twist slot would be autogrant.

    mmm..

    Reasoning then you could do 1 of a few things:
    -Make all the purchasable PL feats WORTH PURCHASING. It wouldn't be hard to change you change feats all the time. Wizard PL is a great example of one people actually take. It's never a bad thing to have more feat selection in a game like this where customization is what drives people to stay and keep playing. This is the best approach.

    -Move to an all Passive PL model and leaving the purchasable ones largely useless. This is what i predict you doing since it means new mechanics and not fixing old almost good stuff.

    -Do away with purchasable ones all together but make the current PL's more interesting (maybe best of all worlds).

    Do the right thing.

    This is true. And, given that, why haven't you included revisions to the Heroic TR system in this big Reincarnation project?

    Not really. Unless it's "tome of wisdom of randomness" that applies anywhere between a +5 and a -10...

    Just read this post of mine:

    https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...=1#post5148122

    which was in reference to whether or not EPL's should function 1-20. You have plenty of people with different opinions who all think they can't be wrong...

    Occasionally we all join together to say one or two things, but that's rare.

    Depends on the posts being read. Sometimes it just decreases my will saves...

    How 'bout removing them entirely and making a stance like EPLs? Either one "Heroic Stance" or several "Heroic Martial/Heroic Divine" etc. stances? I can't imagine most builds ever take more than one chosen feat anyway, so having just one stance would probably be workable, although more choices would always be good *g* You might have to redo the clicky bits, but IMHO it wouldn't be OP to get, say, a fighter's attack boost along with a rogue's skulking at the same time. And if it is, have a cooldown between switching stances, either in general or after using an ability.

    how about spending some time converting the Heroic PL active feats to toggles people would like that.

    Also make Completionist auto granted after all that work it is such a bummer to either use a valuable feat slot for it or not use it at all.

    They wanted to implement the same nerf for reconstruct, but they change their mind, stating its because there's no repair amp.
    I'm afraid, if they'd add repair amp, they'd end up with nerfing reconstruct.
    Reconstruct is already nerfed relative to Heal. Might you cast a heal when not needing hp due to the other functions? Now how about reconstruct. Heal > Reconstruct for players Deconstruct > Harm against players. I realize you may need perspective for this last. Deconstruct, while it only works on wf..applies massive debuffs that would require essentially 2 reconstructs to correct..one for the debuff another for the damage and it isn't prevented by Deathward.

    It does seem harsh and it would be better as an autogranted but the idea that someone would not take completionist is just fantasy. There isnt a feat in the game that is better, there aren't two combined for that matter.

    Put into perspective:
    +31 hit points
    +3 to every skill including UMD
    +1 to hit and damage
    +1 to all saves
    +1 to all spell DC'S
    +1 to every other modifier base check
    Tacticals
    Stunning fist
    Divine might
    Divine grace (so +2 to all saves for a Pali/splash)
    Etc. Etc. Etc.

    If you cant fit it then you are massively overvaluing one if not every one of the feats you did choose. Because its best in slot by about X18 the nearest competing feat.

    Please upgrade the bladeforged passive to 10% fort.It will make them sell better too,since the fort will actually be worth something.

    I haven't been able to find a couple pieces of information.

    Are we only going to be able to have 1 iconic stance active at a time?

    For eTR, does the enchant weapon PL also increase to-hit and damage, or only spell power?t

    Thanks!
