Patch Notes 04/11/2021

Weekend Warfront: Spirit of War

Image

It has long been said that the souls of the violent dead cannot rest when fresh blood decorates their graves. A saying that appears to be more than mere superstition to those that battle within the cemetery atop High Pass. Strange and frightening figures form from the cloying mists to tower above the clashing armies.

This weekend Spirit of War will be the weekend warfront from 12:00 on Friday to 12:00 on Monday Altdorf time. You get +50% XP and Renown in the Highpass Cemetery scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.



Combat and Careers
Image
General Changes and Fixes

- Give +10 parry strikethrough to all two hand weapons, in addition to the previous 10% block strikethrough.

Previously only 2h Warrior Priest got a parry strikethrough bonus for wielding a 2h weapon. With this change all classes will get it on 2h weapons. The dual wield bonus was just better than the 2h bonus, this should make them a bit more equal and removes an odd exception for WP only.


Tank morale changes

- Distracting Bellow: Revert to morale 3
- Raze: Revert to morale 2

DB is too strong for a M2 ability, and now with the morale damage soft cap, Raze can be a M2 ability again.


Image
Balance Changes

- Sticky Feetz: Radius reduced from 20ft to 15ft

This matches the VFX size better, and is a more appropriate radius for a 60% snare.


Image
Balance Changes

- Swap Squig Leap & Bounce

Giving Squig leap as a core ability to SH gave them far too much mobility in ranged spec. This makes it easily accessible in melee spec. And instead they get the spammable AoE as core, which mirrors a WL core ability.

- Red Tipped Arrer: Match damage to spellbreaker and change CD to 15s

We think this is needed to tone down the burst a bit, which was previously on a 10s loop.


Image
Balance Changes

- Wings of Heaven: Reduce snare to enemy target and all enemies within 5ft of where you land, instead of 20ft radius.

The 60% snare on such a large area was a bit too strong for an M1 ability. However we want to keep Wings of Heaven as a M1, and have Guard of Steel as M2 as that is a group wide buff which fits better in a M2 slot.


Image
Balance Changes

- Revert Broadhead Arrow back to live damage and 1 stack (0.9 PSM instead of 0.45 PSM, same base damage).

The triple stacking was not really fun for the receiving end, and honestly not really fun to play either, with mostly spamming one button.

- Glass Arrow: Revert back to live version, 5s -25% range debuff.

We don't really think that SW needs so many toggles as they had with Glass Arrow, Steady Aim, Stances and VoN. Restoring glass arrow will give them some utility and a bit of ST burst.

- Steady Aim: Change to +25% AP cost and +25% critical damage for ranged abilities.

This takes over from both the old Steady Aim and Glass Arrow toggles. But with percentage based modifiers instead of procs there's no need for internal cooldowns etc.

- Swap Swift Strikes and Shadowstep

This mirrors the SH Squig Leap and Bounce swap for the same reasons. Swift Strikes mirrors the Marauder core ability Convulsive Slashing, while Shadowstep will be easily accessible for any Assault specced Shadow Warrior.

Image
Balance Changes

- Mistress of the Marsh: Radius reduced from 20ft to 15ft

This matches the VFX size better, and is a more appropriate radius for a 60% snare.


Image
Balance Changes

- Devour Essence: Remove stat contribution, but add weapon DPS contribution instead.

Previously this ability did far too much damage in shield spec. It had no weapon damage contribution, so using shield didn't lower damage at all.



Content

lets see it in longer run how its all will perform.
just how this balance changes will make ppl play more under aao? (thy just swap to destro and now order has 400aaao)
also chosen has in previous patches reverted back to 200morale on block ( byff for chosens recent patch about m2?) also black orc has similar.ps will it be nerf for bg also?
As is has often been said this is RoR not live and as such it’s not a basis for change / buff / nerf (not my words)
