    Default Magestar- Nerfed or Bugged?

    I saw the Magestar on Lamania, and was immediately impressed with the concept. An item that gave healing and spell absorption seemed quite nice. Sadly, when I pulled it recently, I found the healing portion had been taken out, and testing confirmed it was indeed gone. I assume this is WAI...likely a nerf. But what I don't get is why? 15 charges and an augment is really nothing that spectacular...plenty of trinkets have better effects. So, any ideas why it was removed? Even if the healing was too much, you could've halved it or made it false HP and the item would still be more useful.

    Note...hadn't upgraded it yet, but from what I saw on the barter UI, looks like nothing changes in the lack of healing....correct me if I'm wrong though.


    Thoughts/comments?

    We've already been told that the libram that was released on live is bugged and does not have the stats intended. I wouldn't be surprised if this was bugged as well.

    'Bugged' is one thing. However, the description for the magestar on Lam does NOT match its description on Live. It was modified both in function and description, and that suggests strongly to me that this was an intentional nerf to the item's capabilities.

    That's very disappointing, for LevelJ is right - it's now a high-level Epic item that literally adds no new function. Compare it to the Pale Lavender Ioun Stone and tell me why I should bother.

    Now THAT is a bug...the barter UI clearly states upgrade gives it 15 charges and a green slot.

    But yea, I hope you're right and it's like the Libram...maybe that means it wasn't nerfed...still, idk why the description was changed if it wasn't intended.

    Version control....

    I'm betting what we have on live are old versions of the items. It will be interesting to see what the other named items look like.

    I may be remembering incorrectly, but I'm fairly certain the barter UI actually says that 15 charges and the green slot are "effects removed" and there simply aren't any effects gained. It's clearly buggy either way, but I got a chuckle out of that.

    lol I just checked it again, and you are correct...effects removed...nothing gained supposedly....fail. Didn't notice that before.

    It made it onto live advertising the wrong upgrade. The actual upgrade is only giving 10 charges. However, the upgrade interface tells you it will give you 15 charges still.
