considering that there's been talk of modifying all the classes to use final damage (ala srams), I think a lot of people would probably be pissed if they released a new class to properly fit within the new combat mechanics before they touched up all the existing classes. I wouldn't be happy about it, myself.

But those same people are not happy to begin with that they're potentially going to do it so piecemeal, and it's going to be three months (september - december) after the first class revamp that they fix the next, which is just plain absurd after such sweeping changes that tended to favor the one class that got the revamp at the same time.

You don't want it. It builds up HP Res awfully fast for how little it heals, and it basically just cancels out your self-damage, which is not worth a loss of +40% HP you could be getting from investing in more HP (or maxing resistance). As a fire sac I also would hesitate to even take the hp% healed at the start of your turn, because it means it will always lower your angrrr. But if you're solo it's probably worth taking because it does make solo leveling faster and safer--but at max level it's probably not necessary.

YMMV, but the options besides straight +HP% and resistance don't seem worth it.

Kill solo saguaros/saharash/ohwymi mobs until 115. Do all questlines if you haven't already, at 115 do the saharash questline start to finish. continue killing ohwymi mobs while doing the area challenges until 125. at 125, go to fungapole (area opened by finishing the questline) and start doing challenges there. you can fight mobs if you want still, but doing challenges only is still amazing xp.

They need to do something about HP then cuz nobody stats that. D:

They need to remove or drastically reduce the progression of Heal Resists if they want anyone to seriously consider statting HP. Right now, there's just no good reason to ever invest in HP when you can get 25 block and increase your resistances via stats, both of which are better options than statting HP (Fecas don't have the luxury that foggers and sacs do for +60%, but then they can stat lock to get even higher resistances). Right now, heal resistance is just too much of a liability to ever bother with HP. It's all about mitigating incoming damage, rather than creating a higher soak capacity for that damage.

It doesn't seem horrible, but neither does it seem like a change that will actually help a lot of people. the name of the game continues to be that more damage = better. Maximize your damage%, hit things in the face to victory.

Now it just means resistance is less important for players, and less combatable by players (rogue's piercing shot comes to mind, as it's probably one of the most hardest-hit offenses hurt here). Also will reduce the effectiveness of things like fecas Harmor.

I am guessing, since I got a tutorial guide box in beta that stated that the Otomai Disciple quest is currently WIP, that the level 200 helmet is the final item relic for it. Looks way too OP with that AP though and they must have accidentally added the AP, unless level 200 gear is way better than anything below it.

They might just have the stats as a joke though for people that go through the patch data most likely.

I wouldn't be surprised by that kind of stat value for a level 200 relic.

OTOH, given that they're massively overhauling systems still at level 150 when adding in only 5 levels to the game, you should take those stats with a grain of salt. It's highly likely the game will be overhauled twice over before anyone actually gets that relic in-game.

Will you also release low cost MP items? 10 AP 7 MP was also a very nice build that I believe is now prohibitively tedious to obtain.
Yes, we will add some low cost items with exotic MP too.

I do think fragments should not have such a huge PP lock though. Somethind does need to be done about drop rates eventually though.
I do think too. That's why there is no PP lock cap at all on Shushu, Saharash and Divines Dimensions.

The other ones will be removed with a retake of the drop system.

Quote (Raizzan @ 18 June 2014 15:03) *
Then perhaps the devs should nerf satisfaction Ring in the next patch.
For the reason I gave earlier, it's still not healthy to allow player to bypass the limit with items like Satisfaction ring.

And when is this drop system change coming? We've been waiting for months.

I'm a big proponent of bringing AP to the common player!

I think you should be a big proponent of just making things not so ridiculously difficult to acquire, though. I think they're set on: You need a relic *or* an epic to get 11 AP, and you need both to get to 12 AP.

You know what? Fine. It's retconning three items that have been in the game for MONTHS now, but you know what, fine. But if you're gonna be that restrictive with how people progess past 10 AP, how about they take the fucking time to make it possible for more than the top 2% of people to do it?

Make Epics easier to acquire. x10 the drop rate on relic frags and drop PP locks for all of them. Make these things truly obtainable for people that are max level. Not just people that are max level, have an entire group that will go with them to farm 1 piece of equipment using 6 well-geared characters spending 4+ hours a night for 3+ months just for One. Fucking. Relic.

I think you're just desensitized to non-grinding elements. Everything else is so bad and so grindy, that something moderately normal seems too good to be true.

Ankama, never stop believing that you can do whatever you wanna do, regardless of whatever anyone else says or what logic would say is wrong.

First rule: we will limit the amount of AP to 12 and MP to 7.The current builds shouldn’t be impacted directly, since this limitation is designed with level 200 in mind.This will allow us to create any type of items with said bonuses without having to worry about the overall balance. You will be free to save the ability points usually spent in the AP bonuses and try to reach 12 AP with equipment only!Just to be clear, this limitation is only outside combat. AP and MP gains in combat will not be limited.

The irony of this is that they're making items unique of non-relic rarity so that you can't actaully use things like Wa Cwown/woboots/GM Epps together to reach 12 AP with equipment only like they initially said. But I guess you can still wear a satisfacation ring to replace that 1 AP from stats, right guys? Who's in for some satisfaction?

It makes you wonder what the fuck they're doing now, but hey, it's Ankama. It doesn't have to make sense.

Edit: Ahaha they even nerfed satisfaction ring, which was a shitty item to use to get 12 AP to begin with. Annd now you can't even do that. Haha. Oh man. Ankama, please. My sides.

Wishful thinking. There's more items like that which lack the normal BP MP or cape AP at higher levels and while their dmg% are marginally higher, I think it's a bit much to expect this kind of last-minute addition to then necessitate a global itemization revamp.

I mean they might start on it, and say yes it'll happen, but like drop rates, it won't actually happen. Y'know?

I know that you can go up to 150 on the test server now, but I don't know if it was like that before, or why that'd really even matter.

Yeah, this is just a fact of life regarding Wakfu. They will listen most to their largest playerbase because that's what's best for them. I don't blame them for it at all. Sucks, but, oh well.

What if 2 monster locks you? Will we lose based on their total lock or will lose with each of their lock?

I noticed this question by Celay01 in the news post topic about the lock and dodge mechanics. I thought I should address it since it's a fairly important one.

In the current system, a unit will roll individually against each locker to test for dodge. Meaning if the dodger has 200 dodge and both of the enemies have 100 lock, the dodger has 95% chance to dodge against both targets, and must try to escape the tackle zone twice with a 5% chance of being locked twice (or something rounding to around 7% chance of being locked). On screen though, for the dodger it will display 95% chance to dodge when he tries to move from the tackle zone against the two lockers.

In the new system, the lockers' locks cumulatively added up to affect the penalty applied to the dodger. It wasn't definitively, but it became apparent when I had just enough dodge to dodge a locker at 100% no penalty, and then another unit came up to me with one or two lock which was enough to incur a movement penalty upon trying to dodge.

• Mango

In short: Having two lockers at this point in time serves little to no purpose, to the point where it's basically redundant. However after the update, having multiple lockers may be the only way to incur maximum dodge penalties, if any dodge penalties at all to monsters (e.g., Dragon Pig requiring upwards of 1'400 lock in order to incur maximum dodge penalties -4 AP -5 MP).

I'm almost 100% certain that Dragon Pig does not follow the 4 AP / 4 MP maximum lock rule, because I've consistantly been able to shed 6 of his 8 MP as he moves backward to perform one of his moves when fighting him solo (for testing purposes). I've also been able to get over 200 lock vs his dodge, and maintained a maximum of 2 AP / 6 MP lost (it will go up to 9 MP lost when he picks the +3 MP option, still leaving him with 2 MP to move). If you even can take more the 2 AP from Dpig, I seriously doubt it would ever be worthwhile to do so, given his moves cost 1-2 AP each.

Unless you've done testing of your own that shows differently, I think it will be different for UB's at the very least. I haven't/probably won't bother to get a group just to try and lock bosses like bw, gm wabbit/wa wabbit/etc, but I'm guessing those bosses might operate under a similar principle as Dpig.

I also seriously doubt that in the new system you can full sap MP from mobs, but it's possible I'm wrong there. Could potentially try to do 2 lockers with dpig structured in such a way that he escapes the first one, heads toward the second and then is stuck--but then you'd have to make sure you can reset that cycle and that Dpig would go for the second locker every time, rather than run off and start killing your dpt. And that it can be done twice to drain all of his MP by locking.

Also gobbly gives %20 damage not 15.
I dont know did they make it for sell more and will they nerf it.

Go look on the Encyclopedia.

The encylcopedia is wrong (and inconsistant). Looking at the pet page Here, you can see that the gobbly is 20% dmg/24 lock. Click on the entry and it turns to 15%. But in-game I have a level 31 gobbly @ 12% damage already, and at level 25 it was 10% dmg. Unless it's the only pet with a completely fucked up progression, Gobbly's actually have 20% dmg/24 lock, not 15% like it says some places.

But that doesn't matter. Bow Meow is the better choice if you're tanking, but you can use a gobbly if you're not tanking on a feca but can't get a tofu or something.

Ive been thinking more and more about it and i think that they need to change how foggernator works with stasis because atm its honestly not very good. Idk how they can change it.. maybe like make it so it just out right increases the stasis damage you have because honestly it doesnt scale well at max level you end up taking just 10 less damage than at 0 and unless you have a healer or the hp passive your basically going to kill yourself faster than an enemy could.

Edit: Also it actually makes stasis weaker due to the earth/water changemechanic

Honestly I think they just need to retool the way the self-damage works. It says it does like 6 damage to you, but that is clearly not the case when it gets up to 100+ self-damage, you end up taking almost as much self-damage as a sacrier does using punishment, except you can take that damage five times in one turn. Fix the self-damage and it is probably alright.
