    Nice one guys, no meaningful sandbox content. You added pre-existing spells to weapons and made XML edits. RIP Development team.

    The market has had active development for over a month now. It's coming. I would rather patch more often than waiting for stuff that isn't complete.

    *edit: removed a shitty comment I made that was not warranted*

    And since they have more than 1 developer, I would imagine they are all working on various features that will be rolling out in the coming weeks. A lot of this shit is much less intensive than the stuff you are talking about. (which im sure is already in the works.)

    I would rather you guys spend time on stuff the player base wants / needs instead of garbage ideas like this
    CHAMPION WEAPONS
    • New rank 75 “Champion” weapons - These new weapons have been imbued with the ability to cast spells and can only be found on the champions! 6 new weapons in total:
      • Champion’s Bow : Wall of Fire
      • Champion’s Warhammer : Stamina Leech
      • Champion’s Greatsword : Iron Skin
      • Champion’s Daggers : Vampiric Touch
      • Champion’s Greataxe : Haste
      • Champion’s Polearm : Lay on Hands
      • These are not set in stone, so suggestions are very much welcome
    whoever thought this was good needs to be fired.

    They are pretty neat. We needed more unique loot in this game. However, the greataxe having haste is sort of absurd. Same with the GS. They are trying to get people to stray away from the meta yet they make the 2 meta weapons have the best spells and give hammers a stam leech (yall havent noticed hammers being the stam drain weapon just isnt gonna make it used more?) and bow a wall of fire and polearm a heal? Common guys.

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion. I understand not everyone will agree with everything being done, it's an unfortunate aspect to all games.
    --- Post updated ---
    I don't disagree, that's why I mention it's open to suggestion. The only one I'm set on is the daggers and vampiric touch.. it just makes sense to me :D

    Perhaps focus on the one sentence

    These are not set in stone, so suggestions are very much welcome

    Perhaps make suggestions rather than be a typical cry baby blow hard.
    --- Post updated ---
    then make a suggestion, they clearly asked for suggestions and that it isn't set in stone.

    I don't understand how they couldn't tell giving the already incredibly popular weapons the insta cast buff others was a terrible idea when it comes to balancing other weapons? The polearm one is definitly a joke, if you need to heal somebody you have the time to pull a staff out for .5 of a second. The bow one could be neat for destros I guess but still is meh.

    You would think you'd be concerned with the opinons of your paying customers and where they would like the game to go but it seems none of you have any idea or just don't care and keep giving us shit changes when we've been promised shit like territory changes since around launch but instead you keep pushing it to the back burner for patches like these..... Why do you think the game is dead? lol because you guys make promises then deliver shit like this very concerning.

    So just to be clear to everyone all of the spells either affect the person you are attacking or yourself. So any positive effect goes to the attacker and negative to the target.

    Well if they have 10 people debating it and they had to put it on paper to show us hence the reason they added the suggestion line. So now we can fix it for them

    Wait what? It says it gives the ability to cast. So does hitting them CAST the spell or does it let you cast it without a staff out? Those are two totally different things.

    Would it be possible to add 1 of each new weapon to everyone's account on the PTS so we can try them out?

    If BPG had a dollar for every time someone thought their own personal needs and desires were the ONE THING EVERYONE wanted they would use their fortune to make a new game.

    Thousands will be flocking back with this patch, as was predicted by those three people in that bunny hopping thread.
