NOOOOOOOOOOOO haha jk, nice looking changes.

Is geddon castable in bear form again?

Post subject:  Re: 1.9 test files

would it be possible to add in some kind of feature on Double throw ? ie additional spear pr 5 hardpoints or something like that ?

some kind of defensive buff to the necro if they choose dagger as their main, they are very fragile in close combat as it is at the moment.

Considered giving blessed hammer the ignore thing back?

imps are a pain hp wise on 1.8 at least on a5 hell

wake of fire on assassins should be looked into , its probably hard to balance it idk
but its really over the top on 1.8

Stuff that makes insane counters like charged bolt sorc / charged bolt sentry should benefit a bit from the risk of dying to counters, just a thought.

love that your back trying to make hu great even greater again.
Good day.

Post subject:  Re: 1.9 test files

I'll buff traps damage except for wof.

geddon should be castable in SS form

I can't add extra missiles to double throw but I can add nova on hit for thrown weapons like we used to have. Maybe limit it to exceptional/elite only.

Necros have bone armor/summons those plus curses and CE...I'm wary of giving them even more buffs. Test psn dagger damage in 1.9 if it feels low then I can buff it so that the risk is worth the reward rather than make necros tanks.

Hammer damage isn't balanced around bypass right now. I would have to nerf the damage or we would be paladins 10 shotting bosses and then hammers would be absolute garbage vs non demons/undeads.

all monsters hp is fixed including imps ;)

I'm pretty sure I buffed CB, Cstrike, and CB sentry already. Test?

Would you consider normalizing 2h weapons so that all 2h swords/axes/maces have +3 range and all spears/polearms have +4 range? And perhaps giving all 1h weapons +2 range, including claws? Maybe not wands/orbs/daggers but everything else.

Post subject:  Re: 1.9 test files


2h swords/axes/maces have +3 range (barbs get +3 range when using them in 1 hand too)
all spears/polearms have +4 range
all 1h swords/maces/axes have +2
javs have +3 range
wands/orbs/daggers have +1 range

Post subject:  Re: 1.9 test files

any chance you could also look into conviction / Lower res / etc pierce debuffs.
i think maybe you should cut a line if you havent allready, define the pierce values of what you want to be able to be broken or not. :) gonna sleep . ill look into some testing tomorrow. Good night.

If you haven't done anything with crafting, that is also a bit of an issue. I know it takes a really long time to edit all of those values for magic and craft recipe tabs, but most of the stuff is just not worth crafting, especially the Diamond stuff. You can make the gems more expensive from vendors or however you want to justify it, but for end-game, crafting should be fun and have a chance to be the best items in the game, although unlikely to get several GG rolls. Higher base craft ED%, AC%, block%, DR, etc so you're more likely to get something useful and a chance at something that, with sockets, can be even better than RWs. It also doesn't help that gems/jewels/runes have such low bonuses that you'll really never get anything better than just using Mystery->Loyalty->HR RW->GG RW without ever crafting a weapon.

rws have been nerfed pretty hard already so crafts and rares will look much better. no need to go overboard until the new edits have been thoroughly tested

Iirc, having 1 weapon range causes some attack skills issues. Maybe I am remembering incorrectly.

well it would be range 2 not range 1, since its +1 range adder

no weapon ranges were decreased. either increased or stayed the same.

I'm getting pink graphics and d2 exception errors in the hell challenge. I don't know where or how that's edited or I'd like to compare it to 1.8 and see if I can find out what's wrong.

Most of that should be in the patch.mpq under data/global/excel/tiles

Post subject:  Re: 1.9 test files

The current test files i posted are pretty much finished as far as i'm concerned. I already did all of the work for 1.9 a few months ago and I've been sitting on them while people played 1.8 I don't really have time or desire to add more stuff.

If people tested the 1.9 files and are happy with it and didn't find any bugs then I can send the finalized patch files to duff.

Post subject:  Re: 1.9 test files

This is based on 1.8 experience from the patch.

I'm sure somebody mentioned it already.

Wake of Fire with 2x armageddon claws + endgame pierce gear with all skill charms is just melting everything in the game the end end game bosses, provided they wont roll fire ress etc, die in less then 1 minute

The ranage on Wof is amazing and extremly fun! But unfortunatly combined with the damage output its very broken.

While MA assasin with CB and some clear I would consider Very good, above avarage etc.

The WoF end end game compared to MA was just plain Broken, on last patch.

Unfortunately I strongly suggest ( As much as it hurts me to suggest this )

-Wof needs its range reduced to the original value, as it offscreens now.

Now the WoF hit does not count to the Boss Health regen Timer, since you can melt them so so fast you just hit them once in between or something to reset the timer and just dystroy them.

Now wheather the damage needs adjustment Im not sure, depends all on how this skill should perform after achiving everything on the patch.

The skill is fun, nice to keep it viable. DMG is scary tho

I have not been leveling with the skill I just respeced to it before some endgame content, and it clearly outperformed anything in the game, in terms of clear and boss kill.


In terms of items:

Im not a big fan of items that are best slots etc, thats why I like the Mara change, also:

-Empyrean Band need nerf - I would remove the Health mod from it personaly

-Arkaine valor needs adjustment - simply best armor in the game for mele
Perhaps it could get slightly adjusted?

Also would it be possible to get % health mod back as random as base for Armors?

It would make Armor crafts more viable or even some Rare etc. as it was few patches ago.

war gives level 30 oskill increased stam now

Balance wise... why? Other than relinquishing barbs to straight BO bots late game and everyone playing melee druids/palys/sins I do not understand the logic here.

10-15 oskill would be fine. But you are giving every other class a 30 skill increased stam + all skills (no idea how many have been added), but you are effectively giving all classes +10 inc stam over a maxed out barb.

And the defense that "zod cham ber jah" are difficult to get is not a justification. No runeword (useable by all classes) should outperform the parent class. Giving up 360 hp from 4 potential rubies probably just makes it a wash.

Would 30 oskill oak sage fly? The unique aspect of classes in d2 is what makes the party play and replayability so high.
