Balance Changes will come into the game with a big combat balance patch. The Combat Balance patch has been pushed back to go live with the next content update. Which we will announce more about soon.No balance changes at all?
Both Glaive and 1 handed Frost are absolutely retarded atm in GvGs. Overall it's a shit show and people will lose motivation to play the game because:
- Sticky potions are so out of whack - they single handedly counter melee classes and the fact that EVERYBODY on your team can use one is pretty retarded.
- Glaive does a tremendous amount of damage, it's actually a RANGE weapon and has the biggest displacement in the game on a ~20 second CD - what the fuck is this shit?
- 1 handed frost - provides INSTANT damage AND instant control - no weapons actually do this on AO.
- Refaming/respeccing to a viable weapon from the beginning is liquid aids because it requires WAY more fame and the fame grind rates are WAY slower than before - PvE faming isn't even fun at all because the actual PvE content in this game is dog shit, laggy, and super buggy with tons of memory leaks.
We are still in internal testing, but among other changes the patch contains adjustments to the points 1-3. It also contains improvements to a range of under used items, like the Frazzle change, which is also part of the combat balance update. Unfortunatelly the tooltip got accidently exported into the live game, but this change will also be part of the big combat balance patch. As well, as Smart Cast.
Thank god for smart cast but Retroman come on fam Sticky potions should never have gotten into the game as is.
