Warrior Tanks,

 

I wanted to let you guys know that we’ve decided to implement a Warrior threat hotfix. This decision was made after discussions and coming to an agreement that we should get this into your hands as soon as possible. Here is what we are changing:

 

  • Menacing Strike: Bonus threat increased to 150%, up from 130%.
  • Jolt: Bonus threat increased to 150%, up from 130%.
  • Polarity Field: Bonus threat increased to 150%, up from 130%.
  • Atomic Spear: Bonus threat increased to 200%, up from 175%.

 

I also wanted to mention that we are currently planning to implement more significant Warrior Tanking changes (which I wrote about in the July update) in Patch 3.

Good for warriors. Seriously. I've seen like one warrior tank in adventures ever.

 

 

 

Now, Speaking of hotfixes, Spellslinger cooldowns are not visualized properly. Some abilities are castable up to two seconds before the cooldown is finished, and some aren't castable for up to a second after the cooldown has completed. It's making spellslingers really clunky and even more awkward to play than espers.

For now, it'll help a ton.

 

The rest of the changes coming forward to drop three is great too.

 

Thanks, Carbine.

We'll see, but the big thing here is the commitment to drop 3 for the overhaul, which means we'll get to go test the crap out of it on the PTR and give them real feedback in a timely manner. Merkal making a good faith effort in the interim and committing to making a real fix a priority is good enough for me. It can't be any worse in the short term. 

 

Thank you to Merkal for stepping up the timetable and I hope you understand our frustrations and don't take anything personally. We're all passionate about your game and just want to be able to enjoy it. This is a major step in the right direction.

Seriously though...Thank you, I believe that many warrior tanks including myself can happily wait until the proposed mechanical changes are put in place with this hotfix. I look forward to seeing how they're implemented and play out on the field and I'll actually be on the PTR full boar when those are put in like I'm sure Graiban and many other warrriors will too.

Very much appreciated! We probably still won't be up to engineer level, but it's certainly a start!

 

Now I can stop collecting shitty DPS gear.

 

If you can get this hotfix out in a good time you'll have my full faith restored in this game.

I definitely think it is for Vet adv and dungeons from my experience. Idk about raiding as I have no experience. As I said I don't really have problems in dungeons and adventures, this will make it so I have none at all. I am looking forward to it!

Don't even. Will assert 'till he's blue[r] in the face that there is literally nothing wrong with warrior tanks at all levels of content b/c he's still doing fine in PuG dungeons.


I could not give less of a wet *cupcake* about your "likes" count. Funny and/or popular doesn't equal right.
