** Upcoming 1.7 Update - NA Region - 8:00am PST 2/1/12 **

Good evening!

Tomorrow morning [2/1/12] at 8:00am PST, the NA region shards will be coming offline for the update to 1.7. To allow for additional shard verifications, the estimated downtime window is ** 2 hours **.

Compiled patch notes will be updated and posted here on the forums in the morning.

I'll be back during the downtime with status updates as things are underway!

Time to watch the playerbase jump to wild conclusions about the end of a class before they see the patch notes. This will be entertaining at best.

Need I mention again I would not mind if they just removed pvp from the game to stop all the crying.

MMO players do tend to think the sky is falling every time anything happens.

Just out of curiosity though, which class are people going to be crying about THIS patch?

We had a pts test today...by the way this is a bad thing apparently...anyways they put valor on the weapons and tried to increase it by 10% on items and give us more health..cough cough Star Wars.

It resulted in less death during pvp, but sort of the same result as the last time they tried it where warriors, rogues, and mages hit sub 1k and Healers were hard to kill.

My guess is the patch notes tomorrow will revert the valor changes?!?!

This note:

PARAGON
* Force of Will: Fixed a bug causing Force of Will to not effect AoE attacks. As a result, the critical hit damage bonus of all attacks has been changed to 5-15%, down from 10-30%.

That on the most recent pts notes is causing drama in the warrior community. Basically on the previous pts build Warriors were just incredibly stupid OP in damage. Turns out to be some bug or whatever.


http://rift.zam.com/en/ability/5000000342/Force-of-Will

Critical hit damage of follow up attacks is increased by 10%.

Right now with 3 points that says 30%. According to the above note that would be 15% now if it goes live, so do the math and it is a nerf that Warrior are losing there ever loving f'n minds over.

According to the warrior guys who post on the forums this patch was only supposed to be buffs for the warriors no matter if it made us OP as sh*t

God forbid they do pts test or anything to catch these type of thing or things called hotfixes.....Rift class forums are a brain drain of epic proportions. Venture at your own risk honestly.

For example of how backwards the Rift community is:

^ two pages so far and not one person agree's who will be OP next patch

Very smart. Atleast they know who the competition is and are still trowing punches at WoW

Interesting. That's been around for a long time then; I can sort of see why people would get upset by it.

Alright lets see what we got here

http://forums.riftgame.com/official-rift-news/patch-notes/296204-rift-1-7-8-00am-pdt-2-1-11-na-tba-eu.html

1.7 notes announced..skimming through them now

* Increased the amount of Valor provided by all PvP armor sets.
* Added Valor to PvP set weapons.

^ ok so this went live

* Force of Will: Fixed a bug causing Force of Will to not effect AoE attacks. As a result, the critical hit damage bonus of all attacks has been changed to 3-10%, down from 10-30%. [edit: % fix]


^ we need parses and not just random crying

btw for those wondering what these litte babies are crying about. Before this patch Force of Will was not stacking with SLI:

http://rift.zam.com/en/ability/1072235379/Strike-Like-Iron

Before 1.6:
SLI = only dps boost in AOE attacks

After 1.7 it is now

SLI + FOW = AOE attacks

I am confused as to how this was not a insane buff on our dps. All I know is before this change on the pts and they were both stacking Para/Champ was beyond OP.

Wait did I read that right?

Force of Will NOW AFFECTS AoEs... so... so... shouldn't that be a dps INCREASE?

Wouldn't that be a pretty solid reason for them to lower the base crit chance on it? Y'know... so it's not stupidly powerful now?

I r confuse

Basically what is going on is noone has really tested this and they are jumping to conclusions. It is worrying because we do have some pts parses that did show a big decrease.

There is a question what is causing this. I figure Trion could not take the chance to hold it back for hotfix because yes it would be stupid OP

You do not have to be very smart here

SLI at 3 atatck points increase dps by 50%, then FOW now works with AOE so that is a PASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSIVEEE 30% extra.

I am not overly smart here, but uhhhh

It sounds like this needs to be tested further before conclusions are drawn.

If the parses backup pve is screwed I'll bet we see this in less then 2 hots fixes.

As a result, the critical hit damage bonus of all attacks has been changed to 3-10% IN PVP, down from 10-30% IN PVE

All of these idiots are too busy crying on the forums. Trion devs listen to hard numbers and instead of crying these guys need to provide constrictive feedback.


andddd TADAAA

Addressing the loss of DPS for warriors is a top priority right now.
We will deploy a fix as soon as is possible - it is being looked at actively as I type this.
