hearing is easy, listening is hard

February 24, 2009

Apparently Mythic has mastered the art. I honestly can’t even describe how happy I am to see what they’re doing. As you might recall my initial reaction to 1.2 notes was a mixture of disgust and appall. My reaction to their progress? Relief. Joy. Pride.

Here are some of my favorite parts of the update:

  • Da Toughest buffed back up slightly. Was useless, giving 30 wounds at rank 40.
  • Elite Training fixed, no longer 100% parry for 10 seconds including attacks from behind.
  • Chosen / Knight auras are baseline 0 AP, these classes are no longer required to give up a tactic slot regardless of spec to fix their mechanic.
  • Covenant of Vitality damage increased. Due to now being resistible, the WP healing Prayer was now healing for nearly double the net effect of the damage + heal of the Covenant.
  • Witch Elf kisses nerfed, other abilities changed, much needed.
  • Witch Hunter Executions now scale with strength. This has to be my top change in this push.

Don’t get me wrong, there are many, many more good and needed changes. This also isn’t the end of all balance problems. It isn’t just a step in the right direction, it’s a steroid-fueled Barry Bonds-eque power-drive in the right direction. I guess sacrificing all those virgins finally paid off.

Oh and because Warhammer Alliance cute little podcast totally mocked my animated gifs… you have to look at THIS!


Yeah, I went there. Thanks for the support guys.

    Oh god not the circles *facepalm* As long as you don’t make something like… “How to properly tea bag your opponent… WITH ANIMATIONS!”… I’m all set.

    Ohhh, someone forgot to get a pre-nup. 😉 I can see that court hearing of irreconcilable differences. “They just wouldn’t stop with the .gifs!”

    On a serious note, yes, there is a lot of good that they have done since 1.2 hit the Test server (imagine that, testing on the test server), but I biasedly feel like my loved class got more ignored on a lot of key factors. Hell, they even came back and gave the AM some lovin’!

    Of all the changes, WH executions useing Strength is probably the biggest fix of the bunch.
