Where to view patch notes / changes for necro ?

I am a returning player who stopped several weeks before the path of fire expansion. I used to play a valkyrie reaper for open world PvE because I just like feeling like a tank. I read recently that there were several major(?) nerfs to the reaper and the shroud and was wondering where I can get more info on this. I browsed through the GW2 wiki but couldn't find anything useful. Is there a way for me to view the changes since before PoF came out ?

    Well there's the patch mentioned in the 2nd topic you linked: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Game_updates/2017-11-07#Necromancer

    But if you want a summary of all changes since PoF you're probably better off asking in the necro sub forum for someone familiar with the class to bring you up to speed.

    "You can run like a river, Till you end up in the sea,
    And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams,
    And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek,
    It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings."

  • While there's no specific place to see all changes from Date ABC to Date XYZ, you have the following options:

    • The wiki includes the history of every change made to every skill/trait, along with the dates and the details. I think the lag between change and wiki update is usually about a week, but I stopped checking, so it might be less/more now.
    • You can use the links provided above and manually search.
    • You can use google (or bing or whatever) to narrow your search. For the wiki, it would be something like: site:wiki.guildwars2.com inurl:game_updates necromancer. For the forums, site:en-forum.guildwars2.com inurl:game-release-notes necromancer. In either case, you can restrict that further by date.

    I think @Danikat.8537 suggested the best option: asking in the relevant profession forum. You'll get some opinions coloring the facts, but you'll also get quick responses.

    "Face the facts. Then act on them. It's ...the only doctrine I have to offer you, & it's harder than you'd think, because I swear humans seem hardwired to do anything but. Face the facts. Don't pray, don't wish, ...FACE THE FACTS. THEN act." — Quellcrist Falconer
