  1. Agreed. The class is unplayable as it stands. Makes me even more salty about the ill-conceived decision to cram turn based in at the end -- took away any hope that the inevitable issues in the new sub-classes would ever be fixed. Oh well... I've moved on and there appears to be no reason to move back.
  2. I believe this to be the case. I believe that most game developers (and people in general) want to deliver as finished product as possible within given constraints. I do too and as a software developer myself I like to give my brethren in other domains the benefit of the doubt. So I hope this is what is playing out now and that the end result will be at least a semi-stable game. OTOH I reserve a special level of scorn for whoever it was that decided to prioritize TB at this point in the development cycle. These folks exist in all domains and they are always destructive (and while th
  3. I stopped playing about 2 months ago when I reached the same conclusion. Rather than focusing on cleaning up the bugs that inevitably come when they add new core features (in this case the issues that came with the new sub-classes) and instead decided to use the last of their dev time on the TB stuff. The game is entering end-of-life and so they will naturally be winding down the dev team -- makes perfect sense. Also likely that the most skilled/senior folks will be the first to be moved on to other things. Why on earth would they drop this in at the end? I'm guessing it was motivated by
  4. Heya QA folks -- any word on this one. I see that it is still an issue after the last 2 patches. TIA for any info.
  5. It's worse than that -- you can actually one shot things you shouldn't be able too -- see https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/108177-auto-kills-out-stealth/
  6. I'm seeing something very odd in my TB game. Playing on PotD in the first cave. Eder and I are in stealth, my MC is a Fury/Furyshaper armed with a rod with the modal on. I initiate combat with the Rotghast on the platform. The animation shows a stutter which almost looks like multiple attacks, the combat log shows a single attack hitting for 11 damage. The Rotghast is dead. At that point my character is no longer in stealth, but combat has not been initiated. So I re-stealth and attack the Revenant. Same result -- small stutter, one attack hitting for 20 and dead Revenant. I'm assu
  7. I have not seen it since at least 3.x (and maybe earlier). So AFAICT, yes, it is fixed.
  8. Yeah -- saw that, but given it was 2 weeks old I thought maybe that referred to the beta patch before the release (which clearly had things added to it). Don't want to be a pain, but I also would really like to play the sub-class (same thing goes for Forbidden Fist which right now is even more deeply broken).
  9. I started a turn mode game in 4.1 and I'm getting a near constant spew of "I don't think I can do that" or "I wish" or... basically any time I go to select a target if I hover for a split second I get the "not possible" dialog for that character.
  10. Thanks -- didn't see that. Reposted as https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/108172-what-purpose-does-pause-serve/ (since I didn't see the topic posted already)
  11. Reposted from the main tech support forum (apologies if this is a dup, but I didn't see a similar topic): Mostly just curious. In many of these games space bar is "end turn", but here we still get "pause". However, I'm not sure what purpose "pause" plays in a turn based combat system. I understand that I can tweak the key bindings, so no big deal, but it is still odd.

  14. Bump -- any further update -- I noticed that this is still the behavior in 4.1 (thanks for the earlier confirmation BTW, missed that when you posted).
  15. So I guess that's well known to *most* Beserker fans . The top 2 are probably Modywr and the DoC breastplate.
  16. There are items that can mitigate against that. Horns of the Bleak Mother grants RES resistance IIRC and the list of INT resist items is well known to any Beserker fan. Alternatively Slippery Mind gives immunity to both once Blooded (which synergies well with SF for those who like to live dangerously). BTW -- there is also a good discussion of RES boosting/affliction reducing items etc.. in the Darcozzi Purifier thread that was active a while back (that was a max RES Darcozzi/Helwalker build that leveraged gaining and immediately removing afflictions).
  17. Crash fixes good (and making the random encounters less so, so they actually happen, also good). Prioritizing nerfing Wall of Draining over *fixing* fundamental issues in the new sub-classes -- less good. (N.B. -- don't get me wrong, the Wall of Draining thing was OP and obviously not intended, but still, harmless in the grand scheme of things. OTOH you have 2 new sub-classes with major bugs in their core mechanics and nothing.)
  18. From the most recent beta patch notes: Only one Wall of Draining can be active at any given time.Party's over folks -- go on about your business.
  19. Just to be clear here, identical chanter chant buffs don't stack. Only one "sure handed ila" chant will be active, so you can't get super fast ranged weapon speed beyond the first chant. My dreams are crushed - not your fault Are there any other AOE speed buffs? Aside from the Chanter/Fury barb with the AOE speed totem. I could go Chanter/Wiz or Chanter/Monk for the self speed buffs (Alacrity of Motion, Swift Strikes) I suppose. Feed everyone Mohorā Wraps and a drug like Coral Snuff. Given identical chanter buffs don't stack, it still might be good to mix in 1 of each typ
  20. Out of curiosity have you ever tested draining touch with the copies spawned by the phantasmal cloak (or whatever its name is)? I wonder if they get repeat attacks with it as well.
  21. And no Arcane Archer fixes either apparently -- still hopeful those are in the works (cause the lack of scaling on the Imbues is a serious bummer).
  22. FWIW, I played a Helwalker/Priest of Wael in one run and it was a lot of fun. Wael gives you some toys to help mitigate Helwalker squishy-ness (I borrowed ideas from thelee's Umezawa build (https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/102824-class-build-mechanics-101-lets-learn-with-umezawa-streetfighterwael/). And not to rile up the RES discussion again, but I did not dump RES on that build -- actually maxed it .
