Thanks for looking at the alkamos weapons, big Z. Not sure if they’re fixed, still have to test. But any change is welcome, they haven’t been touched in forever. Much appreciated :smiley:

EDIT: holy crap that scythe modifier, now we’re talking! I’m seeing lots of potential.

It’s time for dw melee spellbreaker :slight_smile: Thanks again Zantai but I was also hoping for some aoe damage to beronath’s fury for the sake of 2h non-wps class combos :frowning:

Great hotfix. Always good to see how community feedback comes through on a lot of these changes as well.

Pretty sure this can’t be done for Beronath’s Fury (as it’s an item-granted skill) unless it were redone completely to use a different template.

Then my only hope is for a new relic with an aa for melee elemental damage.

Lmao, they really don’t care about their own lore anymore…

I can’t wait to see stuff like acid damage being added to the justicar set or vitality damage being added to the light of empyreon constellation being added in the next patch, for the sake of “diversity”.

Good to see feedback being implemented so quickly on many of these items. Cold harra boost! Lightning on PRM! Flat aether! RoK buff! Blind fury buff! Elemental resist nerf on mage heroes! Cheers Z

Great little change

Don’t know whacha talking about. Aether has always been paired with lightning damage. Just look at Wraith, Widow and Spear of the heavens constellations.

Made better with this!

Thank you!!

Lots of good changes, especially mines radius and Forcewave buff.

Some concerns though:

  1. Belgo is a dedicated AA set, any build based on it is holding together by dmg. Its dmg nerf might be reasonable but some defensive buffs to the set items should come as a compensation.
  2. Spellbreaker is not all that strong. What build has “pulled the trigger” on it?
  3. Too many general AAR nerfs. The skill already has very limited amount of top builds. I’ve personally tried both cold AAR and cold/lightning AAR lately and failed miserably.
  4. Beronath’s Fury buff could be higher, to 122% WD. 118% is still not a lot when you consider that you lose a WPS slot and it messes up phys conversion for the majority of dmg types.

good

We all are cross fingers for that

Oh man if you weren’t running enough RR, these elemental type heroes would just tank their respective damage type forever. Can’t wait to see how much better my janky builds will fair now that I’m actually using RR too :wheelchair:

:rofl: glad to see markvoian got some buffs. Lets just hope its enough.

I hope the Crepping Ring and the Basilisk Fang once sold by Vinelton can be brought back.

Not gonna lie, I thought Chillwhisper was in line for some OA/DA buffs. F

Thanks for the patch Zanny daddy.
