    I would rather have the 70 update with new dungeons, than have any of this stuff tbh. We all know the top player will get top in arena no matter what is changed. So another month of mindless fishing and bella grind...i still love this game though :smiley: . Also, pet exchange could have waited not many people have those and what the point of legendary badges when most people dont have 3 stacks of purple yet lol. I guess something is better than nothing...

    what the hell is this crap?

    time to quit for a month and play path of exile new league

  • Don't understand this update at all. The only reason to do PTS is to see the cash grab for pets. None of these changes was needed outside of small Arena change.

  • Eme .... You want really our rage quit? Give us NOW 70 patch as promise.

    Instead we give us 70 feature piece by piece in time...

  • so can anyone Elaborate me on the Vamp rework on pts? gonna be nerf or buff?
    And really youre pushing out warrior awakes first instead of launching all availables together? well ist not like awakes were available for months on other Servers....

  • Rip all the people who are thinking they are close to be the same as everyone else with their almost full purple badges. :)

    It is a buff.. not as massive as DB rmb, but certainly some helpful QoL changes. Makes her even easier to play with better blood regen, but rewards players who keep an eye on the blood meter. Bloody Hell, Aterial, and Thorn EX are still pretty much the same. 20% damage on Thorn Spray, Heartstopper, and Nest of Thorns when under the correct condition is nice tho. An 8s stun on Impale is useful as well if you meet the required condition.

    Rip all the people who are thinking they are close to be the same as everyone else with their almost full purple badges.

    Lego badges are kinda not worth until you get 9/9 or well their benefit isn't very noticeable at all. At 9/9 they are better, but not 9 months grind better/worth. Personally, I haven't done badge grinding in months and I don't plan to start again.. 9/9 purple is fine with me.

    Thank you for the Zerk re-balance, I tested it in PTS and the amount of combos that small re-balance has opened up for Zerk is just outstanding.
    Also, the whirlwind description for Zerk is still off, it says "Three consecutive slashes" but the actual skill is still that current version and not the skill preview version. I really hope we are able to use either the skill preview whirlwind and/or current version. I highly prefer the skill preview version as it seems to be the "mobility" version and the current hurricane-like version seems to be the "damage" dealer.

    Thanks again,

    -Havok

    I know that the staff doesnt read the forums, but i'll write this here anyways.

    One issue with the current arena is that, when we're stuck in a certain floor, we're not able to challenge the previous floor, which mean that, with this current PTS update where the last floor boss is pretty much impossible to kill with the available time, the players will be ranked according to their clear record of the previous floor (59) and will not be able to improve their time because it's not possible to challenge a floor previously cleared!

    There are two possible easy solutions for this problem. Either make it possible to challenge the previous floor (If i'm stuck on floor 60, make it possible to try again 59 for example), or increase the time limit on the floor 60 boss (currently it's 2 minutes timer) to 5 minutes for it to at least be possible to be cleared with the current content and so that players can keep improving their record time to keep arena competitive.

    oj thanks for the heads up, couldnt have lived if they trampeled on Vamp even more than just postponing her awakening for "months"

    Wasn't like this on 150 arena?

    This seems like a good idea

  • On the PTS our boss damage stat is pretty bad and we have no idea how pets will interact with the boss. Steamdrake did about 50% of my damage in the old Arena at the higher floors. Ideally, we would get a five-minute timer that starts on entry or a countdown once we enter like a '5..4..3..2..1 then go!' type of thing to curb the need to wait for buffs/procs/imprints/other stuff.
