    Thanks. Still hoping you find a way to let us pick the HCL1 rewards rather than the HCL2 rewards this time around if we missed those the first time

    Edit based on replies: Not the exact same but something similar. E.g. "watery footprints" rather than "bloody footprints" etc. so it is still easy to tell which season the reward is from. This to further interest those that find the new rewards less appealing.

    From the Release Notes:
    'Smite Evil (Melee) and Exalted Smite (Melee) now lock you into the animation for a shorter period of time. '

    That's good, but does that mean the ranged version of smite will still have the ~2 second animation that's like "Oh, yeah, great shot."
    Per Cocomajobo - Ranged has easy access to AOE - apparently 3 feats, BAB 11 and Dex 19 is considered easy access these days. post here

    Any time frame on when the free feat issue will be fixed for FvS? I still am stuck without being able to change any of my feats at Freddy's.....I do not even have an option to use Astral Shards or a Siberys Dragonshard.

    No, but not because of this note. First one on the list.
    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.

    Quick question regarding cleave changes in U45. Does Eldritch Knights Eldritch Strike and Eldritch Tempest gain attack speed/animation speed like "normal" cleaves do with haste/swf etc.? Can those 2 attacks double strike, and if they can, do we get double proc? Meaning 2 instances of aoe elemental/force damage? I tried to test it on my own, but I'm still low level after reincarnation and my doublestrike chance is quite low.

    Very happy to see fixes to THF hitboxes, Cleaves, and Smite Evil animation.
    My take on "the grind": https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...=1#post6220972

    Ordinary humans have inhibitions that serve as a buffer against what we know is bad behavior.
    However, some people, by blaming others for their own bad behavior, develop a thought pattern that allows them to override self-control in order to achieve a selfish end.
    - My opinion on exploiters and cheaters blaming SSG for unfair punishment.

    Awesome, thanks Steel!

    I'm also looking forward to seeing the new hit boxes for greataxes.

    I think under Enhancements that "focused aim" is a typo and you mean "aimed shot".

    I have never heard of or noticed a saga for the Soul Splitter chain. Is that referring to the end of chain reward or something else?

    How come the Paladin's KOTC Vigor of Life (+30 heal amp) doesn't give ANYTHING and it is not going to be fixed?
    I also asked with a few of my colleagues who are trying to make a paladin now, it doesn't work for them either.

    When is it going to be fixed?

    It is in T4 and T5 and missing a 60 heal amp is a lot.

    I just cannot understand that so much was said about the "new paladin" but it really doesn't feel like it was properly taken care of to satisfy divine melee players.

    Cheers.

    Ps. And would you like to know why people don't talk about this bug so much? Because even after the update the Paladin is quite inferior to other classes and almost nobody plays it so people don't even notice that it doesn't work.

    "Dragonborn females will no longer fall through horses while drinking a potion."

    That is easily the funniest thing I read today.

    Caypenne returns!! Yes!! Thank you!


    Am sorry I missed seeing a DB female falling through her horse while drinking. That would've been chuckle-worthy.

    I'm definitely against this ^^

    And I know of a few others who feel the same.

    HCL1 was great, new and pure (e.g. we didn't know that we were used as Guinea Pigs for future nerfs).

    So I wear those rewards proudly, since i was happy to have participated.

    After seeing the way it will be now (more than 1/2 of the year w HCL, nerfs based on HCL) I will not wear or get any of the new rewards.

    Since I know a few people (from my small group of in-game friends) that feel the same so there must be more who share my view, I say each HCL should have its own rewards and not a "mix and match".

    You don't get the "Trophy for World Championship of (insert sports event here) 2015" in 2019 either.

    I am also against offering HCL1 rewards now. I did not get any rewards from HC1 but it seems entirely reasonable to only get rewards for the competition you are participating in. Every HC should have unique rewards that have to be attained in that competition. Since the rewards are only cosmetic and do affect game play that doesn't seem unreasonable.

    Just logged on, checked thf strike box for Gaxe & Gswd, it's almost 180'. From 9 to 3 o'clock. Animation seams a little smoother as well.

    Thanks

    I wasn't wanting the exact first HC rewards myself. But ones close to the first with minor changes. Specifically the red level 20 sash they could have just put a "II" in place of the I on the thing, but alas no joy. Not enthused by the new blue one and there is no way I'm getting to 10 reaper points for that new cloak so... I'm done, glad I didn't go all the way to 20 for nothing.

    Exactly the job i would assume takes about 10-15 mins to produce, clone item, open the texture's source image, recolor, add a +I, save output, swap image reference, link up the new item id to vendor id. Then again ~stuff can complicate ~things in software .
    There is no shame in pain.
