Haven't tried the kill camera, is it like something in Dragon Age Origins? Really like the killing animation there.

Ranger getting even more ACC is nice. Imagine you want to fight a certain endboss. like a dragon: go grab Hunter's Claw and upgrades, kill some cheapo beetles first, then some tigers, then off to the dragon with a huge pile of ACC and dmg bonuses. :)

 

Also stacks with Red Hand's bonus on kill I hope?

 

It also is a bit nostalgic: D&D rangers had some "enemy" races with special bonuses. But you couldn't change the race. This approach I like better. It's more tactical and you have to plan ahead a bit.

No to get the extra accuracy you need to hit a creature of the same race. So if you hit a dragon 20 times you would get extra 20 accuracy and plus 20 to all defenses potentialy if you picked the upgrade for it. 

 

Rangers are the new boss killer

 

Bonded fury is super powerful. If it works with ghost heart its pretty safe to say that ghost heart rangers are more powerful summoners then chanters now. Far more powerful actually

So a ranger/chanter can study his own summons for the acc bonus i guess? A bit cheesy, but the easiest way to get the bonus.

I could be mistaken, but weren't there supposed to be some new robe models in this update too or do these come with the DLC?

What does Mythic quality add? More damage/accuracy/PEN?

@Rhaeg: IIRC the new robe models are coming with The Forgotten Sanctum.

@Ophiuchus: That’s my expectation based on the first game, unless they went for a twist in Deadfire (which would surprise me.)

Huh. I had no idea that even existed in PoE1.

Digging these spicy Ranger abilities. Would anyone mind checking the PL of Bonded Fury? I'd glue that to a Seer, Geomancer, Wanderer or Wyldrhymer.

Still very much waiting for the option to disable the intrusive News pop-out on the menu page, or at the very least bring back the 'hidden on start-up' option.

So unnecessary! (please don't talk to me about 'customer engagement'!)

I was hiding it on start by editing the Pillars registry in regedit but that seems to now be thwarted for some reason, so stuck with the ugly pop-out thing appearing whenever we start the game.

Don't get me wrong I'm otherwise enjoying the new updates coming in!

So MegaBoss is just big spider with big numbers ? I spawn him via console and was disappointed. Did someone try to fight him in his natural habitat ?

IIRC, only Abydon’s Hammer and The Unlabored Blade could upgrade to Mythic. Both were from The White March (I wanna say part 2?)

about Hunter's Claw

does race means different kind of kith or different type of enemy like kith vessel and beast?

maybe single ranger finally interesting enough

but is the trade post ending for harbinger watch achievable now?

no one ever talk about getting it

It is not 100% clear if "race" means Beasts / Primordials / Spirits / Vessels / Wilders / Kiths, even if it would be the most consistent with game mechanics.

 

I would be curious about the Tiers of these new abilities.

OK, so Single Class Ranger just moved from C+ to B- tier (okayish to include in a party).

Being the only class to be able to inflict enfeeble conveniently is a quite nice unique trait, and their pet is significantly stronger now.

 

However, even with these new very decent abilities, I still think that the amount of ressources is still very limited for single class martial. Single Class Resssource Pool is probably the only critical remaining issue for sufficient balance between classes and multiclasses (along with a couple of mehish subclasses).

Ranger indeed was asking for more non-pet-based abilities.
Interesting through that other classes got zero tuning.

Attacking destructibles from stealth now properly removes stealth from the attacker.

Ah, so no more rapid totem destruction from 12m from stealth.

P.S. Love the idea of Eothas and Galawain challenges btw.

Ghost heart ranger is possibly an A tier class now.

Also it gives Single Class Ranger significantly better pets.

 

Also Ranged Rangers now have an AoE on par with their melee counterpart.

 

I really like that Single Class Rangers can easily switch between AoE (Whirling Strikes / Heart Seeker) and Single Target (Accurate Wounding Shot / Twin Shot) DPS with ease.

​It gives them a very distinct advantage from Rogues who are king of Single Target DPS but can't switch to AoE easily.

Do you have to recast bonded fury if your pet gets killed ? Probably yes.

​I'm not sure Ghost Heart gets the most benefit from Bonded Fury. I think Ghost Heart are awesome to "spam" your 1-bond cheap pet which is a bit contradictory with spending 3 bonds on a pet buff.

 

Furthermore, Ghost Heart needs even more Bond.
​And I think I would prefer to save as much bond as I can for Ranger high Tier abilities when going Single Class.
