    "degraded game client performance" -is this the hitching problem?

    It is what they think is causing it, but Cordovan said on the stream today that the issue never happens in house with the test version of the client, so they are cautious about it actually fixing the problem.

    Yes, but that includes things like OS updates on all the servers, database maintenance, etc.

    Gee, what a surprise after the unannounced skipped restart this morning, we get the warning that it's down for another 8 hours tomorrow.

    I know there were a couple of things that didn't make it into the last patch (particularly Perfect Pinnacle's monk stance effects disappearing on death, but I'm pretty sure there were more) because they were fixed too late in the process - are these going to be part of the "small update"?

    The small update, does it include the Cry for Battle set working? as for the client performance, every time I step into the Tesla tower inspired Wrath of Earth my game performance drops from 60-100 FPS to 10-20 fps, sure it looks pretty with the lightning jumping from pillar to pillar but I would suggest looking into the effects as to lose so many fps is crazy, running at 1440p on a dual Xeon e5 rig with 32 gig ram and a new AMD 56 off a ssd, there is no lag this end when playing much newer games like Wolfenstein at 70 fps.

    Could you provide some more information about the additional fixes?

    which we will not be providing further information about.

    I fully agree with this. I am playing on a 2month old computer, with an NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti, 11GB RAM videocard in it, and I get 5-15fps in that quest. There seriously is something wrong with the design of that quest, if even the latest videocards cannot run that instance smoothly...

    There was an exploit that would let you teleport to the bottom of a ladder by climbing upwards.

    Also the one where you could run your slayer pots out while floating mid air in the Ruins of Thunderholme for ten solid minute. Great way to exploit those store bought boosts

    now that the game is down, can we get insight on what was causing game performance issues?

    I have a feeling I know what exploits are being fixed, and while I haven't been running into "Game degradation" I am glad to hear that it's getting a fix as well. For those who were experiencing that, I hope this fix helps.

    On another note, any chance on a time frame of the next patch? Like, patch patch?

    People (including myself) Are still waiting for Echo of the Ravenkind and Void to be fixed, as well as some other things going wrong (Perfect Pinnacle's stance effect disappear on death, which can only be put on again by re-toggling a stance. Or Purifying Quiver's Bludgeon damage disappearing on death, only fixable by un-equipping and re-equipping.)

    I get that you all want to fix the game and such first, and I fully agree with you, but I'd like to have these items and effects working as intended, especially the raid loot. It was hard enough getting them, it'd be nice if they worked 100%

    The only things in this patch are the things listed in the OP.
    We don't only build for the builds that exist.
    We don't only build for the builds that are good right now.

    The fact that some changes are necessary is not diminished by the fact that other necessary changes have not happened yet.

    Kind of hoping they'll fix the Lock Bash bug so that it uses the STR mod like it's supposed to.

    Lest it return to the dust whence it came.
    Therefore must the soul
    Deceive, Despise, and Murder men..."
