Re: Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

Oh yeah, and I should reply to a couple specific things brought up in this thread earlier, as well as add a couple questions of my own: General There are a whole lot of class-specific things people posted that are good ideas but will require more work than I'm willing to commit to in this patch; rem...

Re: Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

also at this point i'm going to start slowing down on taking suggestions that aren't just straight fd tweaks (excepting stuff like kinesis which is WIP) i've already added much more to this list than when it was first posted and at some point I need to actually commit to implementation in a reasonab...

Re: Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

If even after so many +1's by the hero mains who actually play the class and have been suffering with this shitty class the proposed changes do not happen, then you clearly do not care at all about "equalizing" the classes. Lets be real kindly fuck off pressuring us with bullshit like "do X or you ...

Re: Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

alright drop the drk flaming. drk is not getting significantly buffed further (may tweak the number another like +/-10% but that's all), end of story.

Re: Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

We mostly ignore the parses that people post because people can and do inflate/deflate their parses deliberately for their own reasons. We ran our own internal dpm tests for these changes and are using that data as the base instead.

Re: Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

re hp buff: my concern can be summed up as "general fd buffs will result in many classes farming faster/better which might cause an inflation surge which is really not what the economy needs right now". it'd suck to get classes up to viability only for prices to get even more fucked up because of it...

Those are you exact words, alicia. I was given the chance and I explained quite well why DrK's current buff is simply just not enough.
DrK is actually only about 20-30% behind Xenon in the current meta atm. It doesn't need all that much.

Re: Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

Adjusted: - 10-15% boss hp buff removed and replaced with 15-20% non-boss buff instead. This is to cover all the fd increases classes are getting. - F/P archmage fd increased to 45% - Reduced the jett strikeforce proc to 55% - Aran's Adrenaline is now affected by buff duration, reduced the fd from s...

Re: Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

Originally we had Equilibrium be affected by buff duration but after it was pointed out that doing that technically makes you able to use Door of Truth less often we reverted it to being unaffected. Should it be affected again? Also, the bam change means that with aura scythe buff active you'd have ...

Re: Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

As for Bishop, instead of nerfing blessed ensembles FD, wouldnt it be more appropriate to put a lower cap on benedictions FD scaling? This would make them scale less hard but still keep them stronger early.
I'm not really against Bishop being a lategame scaling class.

Re: Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

re specific class stuff (kaiser, etc) There are a couple other things I could do in this patch for the most part I'm trying to keep the actual work that needs to be done low so that I can get the patch done ASAP. If you'd like, I can hold it off for another, like, 2-3 weeks and give things more time...

Re: Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

Some quick stuff: Why don't you do X instead of just buffing FD? This class's issues stem way deeper and you can't just bandaid slap FD on them I can, and I will. There are 40 classes in Maplestory. Expecting us to get all of them in one go with anything except the most cursory of simple FD buffs is...

Discussion: (Upcoming) Class DPM Equalization

So far I have a loose draft of the planned FD and other miscellaneous changes. Right now it only exists as a set of notes, but that's what this thread is for: refinement and discussion. This might put the mobbing/farming meta out of whack. For now, we will consider that an acceptable change in the p...

Re: Making certain items transferable btw characters again

was technically a regression

they were always supposed to have remained tradeable within account but somehow the changes got accidentally reverted
