Hi there everyone.
 
We have several fixes in place we wish to let you know about!
 
  • The Arena move "Block" now displays and activates correctly.
  • Quick Buff Group is now working correctly.
  • PvP Rating gained while the buff "Conserve" is active will now calculate the appropriate result.
  • The buff "Avert Gaze" is now functioning as intended.
  • The buff "Critical Hit" is now functioning as intended.
  • The buff "Distil" is now functioning as intended. It no longer pushes buffs beyond their cap.
  • Buff Logs no longer duplicates repeatedly.
  • Friend requests can now be Accepted/Declined. Note this only applies to NEW requests.
  • Personally secured Titans are now delivered Uncrafted.
  • Mailbox link at the end of Auction messages now takes you to the mailbox.

Thank you for the reports that allowed us to track and fix these issues.

Thank you for these updates! I do appreciate the more transparency about changes than the prior years.

Are you able to provide the specifics as to how it was working before and how it is working now? This would provide even more clarification.

And I am very intrigued by the PvP rating with Conserve section. What did it do before? And what will it do now?

Why was the change made for distil to not work with UB? It's worked forever. People have come to rely on this, if it's a bug it should remain at this point. It's persisted for so many years (Maybe since distil came out forever ago)?

Is that a type-o?

 

Distil only works on potions, so it would increase the level of a UB potion.

 

Buff Enhancer would be the skill that has an affect on non-potion buffs

These 3 points trouble me. I thought the activation of Avert Gaze and Critical Hit worked fine. So did the activation rate go up or down? Its kind of ambiguous to say it works as intended now. 

 

As for distil, you really should have provided a list of what skills are capped. I have never heard of such a thing in FS before. From the posts above, it sounds like UB 190 potion no longer is increased beyond 200 if used after a distil pot. 

 

If you are capping certain buffs, then you need to change the distil buff description so its very clear what is or isn't capped. 

 

Otherwise, the changes look good.

So I got curious and when to the skills guide for clarification:

 

+0.1% per point increase to potion level when used while the skill is active (no effect on PvP PrestigeCloakHidden CofferDistil or Unbreakable)

 

Obviously distil shouldn't work on distil, otherwise infinite distil. PvP prestige makes sense since the only potion version is already at 10% (cap). Cloak I like since people are cloaked for 8-12 hours at a time which is honestly a lot / would require people to use tokens / gold to re-up on the cloak more often. Honestly not sure why you would include hidden coffer, but okay. 

 

Now to unbreakable, is the aim to sell more loyalty UB 200 pots? Since distil came out, it has always worked on UB.

This was the first thought when I seen the update. I understand buff enhancer not casting certain buffs over 199 but now distil too? Did you confirm this?

If distil no longer works on potions then there goes the value of Potion of Resilience. Might as well stick to the cheap buff. I hope this is an error because there are some gears I don't want my members using without UB200 potion.

Good thing there's a loyalty pot for that:

Unbreakable was always capped so crystalline items WOULD break, which allows HCS to run chomper events more frequently. This was done back in like 2014-ish (give or take a year or two).

And I believe it was Hoof who said Unbreakable would be capped for that very reason.

I believe this change occurred while I was away from the game in late 2012 or 2013.... if I remember rightly, that change also made it so that the effect of UB only slowed the degradation process on Crystalline items rather than prevent it at all... 
I believe the changes to the way UB worked on Crystalline items was precipitated by numerous complaints about UB crashing that market, but this is only what I heard, as I was not here at that time...

Ummm so if you have loyalty points, this change doesnt affect you, so what about the f2p people?

No, I just don't use Crystalline, there are other options, as you very well know...  
But if a guild's leadership is going to require UB 200, the loyalty UB meets that requirement.

As for me, I just buy UB175 from somebody on the buff market, then after my hunt, pop a Mastersmith potion to further reduce whatever repair costs I have.

I also rarely use guild equipment... I prefer to buy my own and only use guild gear if I can neither afford or find what I need to purchase.

am a f2p person.  My loyalty tokens come from DQ's, yeah, those ones you guys may or may not skip cuz, after all, tokens aren't what you want as a reward...

There was absolutely no reason for any of you guys to pick on me or try to make me look bad....   
Things like this is why a lot of players avoid not only the forums, but also global chat and discord.


Cows, take note
