Actually it's very beautiful - with a rich German history, awesome landscapes and plenty of medieval architecture.

Hmm, what do you mean by German history?

 

I remember we were learned that Transylvania was 'only' under: Ottoman Empire, Hungary, Austrian Empire and Austria-Hungary, before finally "left alone" and allowed to participate in Greater Union and enter Great Romania.

And before 1541 (when it was first mentioned as 'independent' state), that territory was initially occupied by Dacians and later conquered by Roman Empire -> Huns -> Bulgaria -> Mongol Empire (briefly) -> Hungary.

It has a German or "Germanic" minority that once was a majority (maybe even until the 1990s, but surely around 1900). Of course they were Romanians in terms of nationality and citizenship. But they identified themselves as Germans when it comes to their culture. They spoke German, build houses that look like the ones we build in Germany and so on. The German name of Transylvania is "Siebenbürgen". All the cities there have an original German name. Sibiu was originally Hermannstadt, Brasov was Kronstadt, Kluj was Klausenburg, Sigisoara was Schäßburg and so on. Most of them called/call themselves "Siebenbürger Sachsen" (Saxons) but there also were other groups like "Banater Schwaben" (Swabians) and such. Even though nowadays most of them left the country you can still meet quite a lot of Romanians in Siebenbürgen who speak German.

Of course rulership changed a lot. KuK was there until 1918 believe (KuK was what you now would call Austria and Hungary) and so on.

I think it's quite interesting that you can travel to Romania as a German or Austrian an suddenly feel like you are driving through your hometown but like 100 years ago. All those nicely conserved medieval buildings...

Other regions of Romania are also very beautiful of course. Especially the rural ones. I've been to the Maramures region and its landscape and those beautiful little farms and villages are awesome.

By the way we didn't learn anything about Romania during 13 years of school. ;)

We have completed with Phenomenum, quite a few changes/suggestions from this thread, poll and tech forums.

At the moment we have organized them into 4 mods:

  • CommunityPatch: Basic - includes suggestions from the Polishing Poll, which we could mod, with more than 66% votes pro / less than 34% votes against.
  • CommunityPatch: Extra - includes suggestions that have more pro votes than against, but didn't make it into Basic package. Additionally it address a few issues we have found in Tech Forums.
  • CommunityPatch: Keywords - adds an array of missing keywords to various spells and abilities; and additionally adjusts a few (in our opinion) misplaced ones
  • CommunityPatch: Typos - fixes several typos found through the game. (thanks to AndreaColombo for assistance and bringing this out)

You can download them all in one archive: HERE

Please note, that at the moment they are in BETA state. We still have a few little things to finish, and address localization (at the moment there might be a few Missing Strings in languages other than EN/RU). As usually any feedback is highly welcome.

  • Mind Lance now interrupts on Graze
  • Soul Mind passive focus generation is now paused on getting Crit, instead of onDamage. (note: current 'breakers' include non-damaging spells, and we'd like to see how it plays out in practice)

So,

  • Wounding Shot DoT now stacks with itself.

Rogue:

  • Deep Wounds was changed to a ApplyOnTick with fixed duration. Instead of doing varying damage (from 28% to 80%) over varying duration, it now always deals 4 ticks for 5% of crush/slash/pierce damage dealt, for 20% total, just as it's tooltip was always saying

Thanks so much for your work on this! 

Is it too late to make a request for the keyword fixes?

The following abilities are coded as poison but lack the keyword. This means they can’t affect poison immune targets, but don’t benefit from +pl items. 

Vile Thorns

Plague of Insects 

Wall of Thorns (also missing counter: antidote) 

Curiously, Venombloom does benefit from +poison pl items, but lacks the keyword.

I would suggest tagging Priests’ summoned weapons with the appropriate elemental keyword based on their lash, like you did for the Wildstrikes.

If we talk about abilities, which you use to summon weapons, it gives you nothing. As for the attacks entries... If we add elemental keywords to attacks, then you can't attack enemies, immune to specific damage type (Fire, Freeze etc.)

Bad idea, honestly.

Wouldn’t that be a problem with Wildstrike as well? Unless I have fundamentally misunderstood what the notes meant about adding keywords to them.

I wouldn't say "nothing". They would increase the duration of the summoned weapon if you have a PL bonus for that element. For example if you use Otto Starcat (+1 PL to fire abilites) and summon Firebrand (summoning spell keyworded with fire keyword) it should get a +5% increase in base duration which multiplies with INT bonuses to duration.

One question: what happens if you'd use Magran's Favor and Sun & Moon to summon Firebrand? You'd have +4 PL to fire abilites (at least at daytime) and thus your summoning spell should have a 20% increased base duration. But since you replace both weapons with Firebrand... will the longer duration immediately get reduced or is it fixed and only gets determned at the tme of the cast? I think that later, but I'm not 100% sure.

I understand, but it's will be look strange - increase summon duration, because you have Fire/Freeze etc PL bonus. I see no logic. Summoned weapons already has very fast cast times in our Patch. Honestly, i think that's enough.

No WS don't have such a problem, because WS lashes added as separate passive status effects to characters and acting differently than ordinary weapon lashes.

On the second thought, maybe it's worth to add priest's keywords to Spiritual Weapons attacks, depending of god.
Eothas -Restoration
Beras - Protection
Magran - Cleansing
Skaen - Condemnation
Woedica - Punishment
Wael - Inspiration
...and the keywords might work together with Prayerbook's PL bonuses, that we plan to add.

But this is just another idea.

I'm drawing the last remaining general passives icons atm. What is the new "Deep Pockets" passive supposed to be called? It adds 1 slot instead of 2. Maybe just "Deep Pocket" (singular)? Or something like "Belt Bag"? "Belt Pouch"? "Secret Pocket"? Or even "Fanny Pack"? ;)

^ It could be called Deep Pocket. Or just Extra Pocket.

And... it could use your current icon for Deep Pockets, since it contains only one pocket)

- Deep Pockets: uhm, how about making two pockets?) But if you do so - please don't delete the current version. We could use it for "Extra Pocket" talent for non-rogues ^^

Yes, I already took Rogue's single pocket and gave him two instead. :) I'll use "Deep Pocket" until somebody tells me to do otherwise.

Ok, I think I did them all.

If I missed one please let me know. After a last round of feedback I will begin with the corrections/refinement/younameit.

I think nobody (except Phenomenum) said anything about the Paladin subclasses yet - or did I miss it?
