    I was hoping they was going to add not change the whole shit.

    Because we know what happens when you change shit. Always better to add then to delete or change.

    If you test the server it's pretty balanced right now besides the offbeat protections for one or two damage types per set.

    true but they have spent this whole time creating these changes that I highly doubt they will go back on so just gotta deal with it and move forward and try to make the combat not suck.

    I think it could be cool to see Archery be viable as a meta in 1v1, and also viable in top tier group fights.


    I also think the mage robes should move towards a supportive mage playstyle.

    thoughts?

    When we can use all kinds of magic, what purpose is having specific armours weak to specific types? It will just mean we have to have 4 nukes and aoe's ready to go. Oh a guy in a robe, casting unholy flames and flames of vengence. Oh a heavy, whipping out the exploding charge... etc. Dumb.

    Agree I liked when all the prot were normalized so that You didn't have to change your r90 or ray rotation just to fight a specific build

    That was the kind of streamlining that is actually good for combat

    How this point isn't completely obvious to the devs is genuinely concerning.

    ...Are you guys ok?

    You didnt suggest it, you reiterated another mechanic for them to copy/paste from unholy wars

    They equalized melee protections and people complained because they were sad their clubs weren't absolutely OP anymore

    Nobody gave a shit about equalizing magic protections, they were pissed they made every r90 the exact same

    A lot of the discussion as well as some polls for the public test server can be found on the official rise of agon discord in the "pts testers" channels. To join the tester group on discord just go to the #get-roles channel and say "?rank tester" to gain access.

    Some use pts for duells only...but many help bpg to balance the armour....

    Its hard until bpg remove the "new" armour protection penality....because usualy a mages try to use air/acid for metal...fire/water for archer ecc but for me mage and warrior are balanced...arcers need a little buff maybe archery speed bonus.....

    Spent some more time on today. Holy cow this is terrible.
    Please don't release any of this. Revert combat. Start over.

    TTK is even worse. Mage robes are retarded. Everyone dies 2x faster than on live. I get that you guys 'worked hard' on this, but its really that bad. This will kill the game all over again just like the last combat changes did.

    Stamina is pretty impotrant. Espcially if you use your bow more then only for disables. And it sounds like they want to make leather an archery playstyle armor.
