    Looks good. Can't wait to see how mounts feel. And finding the golems? Cool.

    Seems the patch added a spell damage bug. Maybe something to do with the mob healing fix implemented. Fighting troll shamans and troll lords today and half the spells didn't do any damage. I think lightning bolt , unholy caress and frost bite still hit them but the bolts did no damage.

    I like everything but the queueing for weapon changing . This seems like your answer to help a few with high ping is to make all have to have a slow response to weapon changes, I'm not a fan of this at all.

    it cant be slow, its a que. If you do an action, and then do another action within the que time, it will perform the action once the "action timer" is off cd. Prior to the que, it would do nothing.

    It doesn't slow anything down at all. If you click the button a split second too soon it will still allow the weapon to swap/skill to queue up. My guess is you haven't tested it out yet, because it's not what you think.

    Well that is definitely different way of looking at it vs how I read it. If this is the case then I am not against this.

    I have not , I'm not able to log in and didn't partake in the testing. I read this as adding a queue to changing weapons to compensate for higher ping players to help them have a more level playing field . I was wrong in my assumption
    --- Post updated ---
    Since the gold return on trade routes have bee removed does this mean you don't need gold to start it ?

    If it still takes gold I would expect the return on materials are going to be insane as the price of housing materials is not too high va the risk of losing the gold .can someone who did testing confirm if it's worth it or what the return is ?

    old crafted mounts still have 400hp. now, i dont think that's fair at all. I feel lucky enough that i've crafted 20+ slow mounts before the patch.

    With all the rumors going around, i don't think that's a good look. I mean, for the ppl who knew about the changes, i'm pretty sure some of them have a bunch of old 400hp crafted mounts in their bank.

    Next time, i think you should warn us in advance. At the same time, i think you should wipe-out the outdated stuff. that's exactly what BPG do.

    This is a full loot game and everything has to be fair.

    I love most of the changes, really nice patch. But what's with the reduced siege timers? Now casual players can get fucked out of their holdings in an even SHORTER period of time. Are you trying to drive everyone but elites out of the game? I'm seriously baffled at what this achieves.

    what?? what casual clan has won a defensive siege solely because of how long the siege timers are?

    if anything the longer timers favor hardcore players that can devote 3+ hours to the siege, they just wait until the defending side is bored out of their minds, unaware, and unbuffed and mount pushes them to victory. with a shorter timer there will be more action and it will be a lot easier for players with less time (aka casuals) to attend.

    maybe you're seeing something i'm not but i can't fathom how you could dislike this change. sieges are fun for probably 10% of the time, the rest is such a waste

    1. This allows for the defenders to possibly destroy the siege stones, but also lowers the total wait-fall of a siege. Essentially nerfing the attacking side's odds of holding all the fights while defending the Siege Stone.
    2. This allows for Defenders to turtle up in their holding rather than face the long dark three hour wait time. Puts more pressure for attackers to "attack" the holding.
