Is the essence interrupter bug the one that destroys the loot?

Aha, looks like they fixed the loot bug from deck fights. Time to clear the seas!

Still no fix for AoE afflictions.  Time to play another game.

Glad to see dexterity is a little more attractive in turn-based mode. Is this the final change for dexterity or are you still monitoring for balance purposes?

Yes, what about AoE weapons? This is pretty big and I wonder why this isn't a top priority.

Same as Essence Interrupter.

Good that the summon scaling is fixed though.

Also no fix for the messed-up walking speeds?

I mean turn based is nice and all and I get that it should get out of beta soon - but is that more important than fixing stuff of the non-beta part of the game?

You know - the part that shouldn't have many bugs because it's not beta? ;)

i have a sneaking suspicion that this is actually an intended nerf (e.g. the designers never intended for this aoe weapon interaction, and they took wayyyy too long to address it, letting people getting used to it) and the reason why no one official appears to be commenting on it is to try to sidestep the player rage at having such a big and late-in-the-cycle power-level cut.

Is this actually on steam yet? Not seeing it for some reason, oddly.

I don't know. Because we had the same situation a few patches ago where rogue abilites suddenly didn't work with AoE weapons anymore. And that got fixed pretty quickly.
 
Also I got this response from QA:
 

Our Dev's are aware of this issue and are in the process of having this issue remedied ASAP.

Doesn't sound intended. But maybe they changed their minds...

yeah I got it within the past hour on steam

It's not 100% clear to me whether that deck-to-deck extra loot fix also applies to unique weapons not dropping such as Kapana Taga and Akola's Apex Ward.  I hope it does!

Same here.  Maybe they haven't pushed to folks still opted into the Beta branch?

if current weapon aoe behavior is the new normal, am hoping obsidian announces so we might get started on our journey towards acceptance.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Seconding calls for an AoE weapon fix. I get that turn-based is new and all, but polishing it shouldn't come at the expense of core mechanics. My playthrough is currently on hold until this is fixed.

Just thought I would mention this because I'm seeing it mentioned on Reddit and Twitter: probably need to cap the number of free actions a character gets each round.
