    Since some of the release notes on Alchemist are incorrect, could we please have an official list of what Alchemist is supposed to have? I expect that what went live is probably what it's supposed to have, but since that doesn't match the release notes, is there a way someone could please check through the release notes compared to what went live and list which version (release notes vs. in-play actual) are supposed to be correct?

    I know that making patches takes a lot of work, but it would be nice to know which things in Alchemist are different because the release notes weren't updated vs. which things in Alchemist are different because they're bugs.

    If possible, take a look at the new shield from anniversary party (Artemist Aegis).
    Looks a little weird (looks like it is strapped at the hand, not at forearm - Half Orc if matters).

    Thanks.

    I 2nd that. Majority of spells are completely different from what U45 release notes say, and while it's a positive in some cases (crowd control spells, cooldowns are much shorter while costing more SP) it's massive nerf in every other aspect. Especially crimsonite damaging spells. Instead of being cool, unique effect spells (molotov as circular firewall, hearstopper poison being aoe dot, etc. etc.) they are all just diferent colours of fireball. Like what's even the point of using different spells when they do exactly the same, escpecially when you unlock t5 in bombardier and make everything take your favorite type of damage? I didn't test class on Lamania, were those spells the same there? Or did they change them into this uninspired boring thing just before rolling patch out?

    Phooey, I was hoping you'd add quicken to the list of metamagics that curative admixtures can use.

    Also known as: Archarias, Ishtaris, Arthies, Artharias, Astanius, and Fidgity.

    Jeez Crapsticks!

    I was hoping for a bit of warning for Hardcore.... so that I could plan my free time.
    Starting it "just like that" is.... sad.

    Well anyway.
    Don't tell my boss it is starting.

    Augment Armor now properly uses a Deflection bonus to Armor Class.
    So wait, it's supposed to be deflection? I figured just the desc was wrong. So Augment Armor and Stiffen Skin both grant a deflection bonus? Is that right? And given how common deflection items are in mid to late-game, that kinda sucks. Guess I can dump those two spells. And the SLA for that matter.

    Seems to me that Stiffen Skin should grant a natural armor bonus, so it doesn't just get overridden by Augment Armor and offers more itemization options.

    too soon for Hardcore season 2

    and why are you over lapping the anniversary event? Please space them out better so you do not overlap, you do not have that many events
    Kill'em all and let their favorite deity sort'em out

    Agreed. This is far too soon imo. My feelings are mixed, leaning more towards disappointment.

    Just more proof that premium/f2p is considered second class to the Devs. Well, at least the low pop servers won't bother me much.

    Maybe we'll be lucky and they'll sneak in fixes for Coccoon (quellable now), quicken/admixtures (nice stealth removal nerf there), restoring IPS so we can get some dignity back,
    medium ranged set armor (still none), stealth (still broken apparently), potions randomly going straight up in the air, putting the actual MIGHT back in divine might...

    ... and maybe... someday... they'll post a single build they use, so WE can do comparative testing on Lam instead of dealing with this "... we're happy where ..." end-of-discussion scenario.

    I did not see anything about fixing:

    NHB and Endless Fusilade warmup is still 3 seconds. It was supposed to be set so that both now had a warmup, but only about half what Fusilade was. What happened to this plan?

    IPS is blocking Stand and Deliver (Shiradi Champion). Is this in the queue to be fixed?

    Glad I wasn't the only one to notice that. It frustrated me more than it should have, but it's just par for the course at this point.

    With all this persistent and wide spread disdain and hate directed at HCL
    you would think nobody would be there...should be a ghost town.

    But it is not.

    That tells me the intense dislike is coming from a very vocal minority.

    If you don't like it don't play it.
    and yes, we know some of you don't like it.

    But look on the bright side, a whole bunch of us that like permadeath
    would never group up with you on a normal server anyways...you will not miss us.

    Just play like normal

    peace

    Premium - they do sell game time cards if subscriptions are not your thing

    Dev. side note. - maybe you should sell a 90 game card + 10 free extra days! in market to cover
    the Premium player HCL needs. 90 for league and 10 extra to clear out.
