Ahah Sul bug ! I found it yesterday. The workaround was to rush to be the one that killed th beast.

 

Nice for chanters. Never thought about that but it was indeed strange.

Unbending now gives the correct amount of health.

What exactly was wrong? And does it still benefit from Might and Intellect?

It was restoring more health than damage taken.

Did the mystic cloak get fixed ? Currently it is the most broken item of the game, and 3.02 was supposed to fix it.

I proved the gloves in the 3.02 and the permament buff dissapear with save and load game, but it still a gamebreaker bug, i thought i was the same bug that the double clicking in the shield and i had to restart my charachter, what a relief. 

I thought it was

Why remove the benefit of one-handed fighting when using a shield?  The shield focus does nothing for offense.

I would think it's because shield style is already outstanding as it is. Also, just like two-handed style doesn't work with bows/crossbows/wands/firearms, I would think getting the benefit of two different styles at the same defeats the intended purpose of the specialized aspect of them.

Ever since this update Durance's audio is starting mid-sentence. For example...

 

"It brought the Saint's War to an end... knocked a god from his perch."

But the voice over begins at "-ocked a god from his perch."

Wouldn't it be better to align Riposte proc on miss with proc on graze ? Currently Riposte chances follow a strange curve with a maximum at +50 Deflection/Accuracy.

 

It's hard to figure what it means lore-wise.

 

30% on graze and miss won't be too good, I think.

Really hope this comes out soon, as I own PoE on GoG, so I can't download the patch beta.

Really hope this patch gets released soon, since I can't take part in the beta on Good Old Games Galaxy.

Hey (you bunch of tremendous gamers)

 

We should be pushing this build out of Beta soon. Sorry I can't give a firm date, it just comes down to how long it takes programming to make patches for each platform. 

 

Hang in there

It's been more than a month since the beta was released. Can we get it out already, pretty please?! Some of us who have the game on GOG don't have an option of opting into steam's beta channel.

Is it possible to get an update on the status of the patch? I have the base game via GoG, and would like to purchase the expansions and start a new run with all of the patch fixes and new content, but the 3.02 bugs seem potentially game breaking.

 

Is there hope for this being released in the near future, or should I look at other games?

 

Thanks.

After the latest update with "Heart of Fury: Switch to 1/Encounter." my Babarian has always 0/1 available. In any encounter and even after resting. And he is high level enough and had it before!? What to do?
