Removing stoneskin/ironskin may actually buff piercing and bludgeoning weapons and bring balance.

    By removing these spells and forcing people to consider enchanting, how many people will choose slashing enchant? This opens up the option of using clubs and even polearms.

    PLEEEEEEEEASE make indestructible effective without weapons active. If you're feeling adventureous, give it a small melee protection buff as well. I just want to be a tank. is that too much to god damn ask for?

    ^Pls

    I hope they are still going to remove buffs. Or at least make it so you can only have 1 buff at a time. And you cant get another until that one wears off. Then peopel at least need to chose one.

    Will also help less used spells, because most people would prob pick fire enchant or enchant gear for fire. So the other randoms liek ice and stuff might be ok. Hope combat changes come sooner rather than later.

    I think removing buffs is a good change. It will add more value to certain enchants which makes the ingredients more sought after. Now that we can't just get an EZ protection buff in everything we'll have to pick and choose protection enchants which should result in some very interesting if minute meta changes regarding damage type. With only 5 apparel peaces to enchant, which will you prioritise and which will you forgo?

    They have said they are upping protections on armor to account for the self buffs, so it will more than likely still be slashing chosen unless they do something to normalize speed, damage, arc and reach across all 2-handed weapon varieties (sans knives), great swords will always be the go to.

    Yea right now the only option we have really with heavy armor is destroyer with top notch gear is “Tanky” but I look at it more like a opportunistic assassin with the damage multiplier when hitting someone with their staff out.

    You will be able to assume that play style more effectively with the release of Combat Paths, as there will be more specialization options available for Melee/Archery users.

    I don't even use any enchants at all right now, too much of an hassle to enchant things, I go with what the market has to offer

    I duel tons, and destro is just so difficult against competent mages in 1v1. I feel as though with the gear I wear I should be able to enter melee at half health vs a mage and still come out on top if we traded evenly. That is not the case. Destro is still good for group play though. Looking forward to the new changes BPG plans to add to us muggles.
