Next Week’s Update, What to Expect?

Hi ya’ll,

So we know we’re getting reduced time gate for skyscale next week.

What about for patch notes? Anything about balance?

Thanks.

    Mainly gemstore update, possibly some tiny balance changes.

    Fractal speed kills, raids, Black Lion Chest Openings, random.

    Sic 'Em buff probably or any Ranger buff in a positive direction for the profession, which would make it viable for raids/wvw/pvp

    Wishlist:
    Everything that kills me should be nerfed
    Remove all time gates - I play more than some people yet I receive the same rewards per day/week (PvP/WvW tickets etc)
    ANET developments/events and everything else should be in a schedule with the time I play

    I very much doubt that. Roaming (the only thing ranger is kinda good at, and far from best, in WvW) died long ago. In squads no one wants rangers.

    From a certain point of view, which I don't share, this might be true though for those who still roam around the map it's kinda unfavorable to be killed by rangers who can achieve considerable amounts of damage from very far away. With some restrictions this would be fine but such repercussions don't exist yet, therefore I would rather see other classes nerfed and let ranger mostly untouched. Maybe some nerfs here also wouldn't hurt.

    1. BUFF teef
    2. New pvp content
    3. New wvw content
    4. Get rid of lazy mechanics like reveal/marked/mount
  • cptaylor.2670cptaylor.2670 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Hopefully some improvements to the Skyscale in general, even though a majority won’t even have the mount.

    You don't play the mode then, because this is plain wrong. No one wants rangers in squads because they steal boons they don't need. They are a perfect "lone wolf" type of class because of how effective they are smallscale.

    As for the patch itself:
    I don't think we'll see the raid just yet, so probably just minor balance changes inbetween balance patches and gemstore stuff. Maybe a new current event already, though that is rather unlikely.

    Bite me.

  • Kylden Ar.3724Kylden Ar.3724 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I expect salt.

    How many times we gotta tell you GRIND IS NOT CONTENT there ANet?

    Leader of Tyrian Adventure Corp [TACO], [RaW][TACO] Alliance, Kaineng.

  • DeanBB.4268DeanBB.4268 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I expect Cantha, housing, landspears, and minion skin packs.

    Yeah, let us look like the minions, yellow, with blue jeans and big glasses! Whoohoo!

  • I expect them to nerf amount of map currencies needed for skyscale, 250 is just too much, it's really lame towards us players...

  • Trise.2865Trise.2865 Member ✭✭✭✭

    The only thing we can expect from an update: Updates.

    If we want ANet to step up their game, then we must step up ours.

    I hope you are joking.

    Soulbeast is the most busted op roaming class currently.

    lol no it's because they do absolute garbage damage in a group setting.

    All of a ranger's ranged damage is front loaded on projectiles that get blocked/reflected by everything now. The only non- projectile damage we have is barrage which nukes your health when used on a zerg because of retal.

    A rev just spamming CoR into a group will put out more damage than the best possible performance by a ranger in almost every large scale fight.

    You forgot fishing and tengu as a playable race. ;)

  • DeanBB.4268DeanBB.4268 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Yeah, that too.

    Oh, and perfectly balanced PvP & WvW.

  • They are probably asking themselves if it's too soon to release the first premium skyscale skin, in view of the current mood.

    I expect the Recharging Teleport to friend to be fixed. Getting a one hour cool-down when it failed is ridiculous for an item I spent money on. It's even more ridiculous when logging out doesn't reduce the timer. The length of time in itself was a bit to much, but compound that with the bugs....

    1.) Teleport to a friend who just died. It does not work (one hour cooldown). Hey buddy I can no longer teleport to you because you died.
    2.) Use it while I die (one hour cooldown). Does nothing. You died because you got attacked by elite while going through you inventory to find it and use it.
    3.) Friend accidentally clicked yes to be in an instance. (one hour cooldown) Does nothing.

    The original 1 hour was already on the long side. The time not counting down when you logout almost pushes it to unusable/not worth it. The bugs that made it not work and gave me a cooldown....

    I expect a big update that improves this item, and encourages more people to purchase said item.

  • Patch notes. I expect there to be patch notes.

  • Blude.6812Blude.6812 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Another speculation thread. Just wait and see.

  • Gambino.2109Gambino.2109 Member ✭✭✭

    Improvements to the skyscale...

    pretty munch a benchable mount, it can't possibly remain as it is.

  • Ayrilana.1396Ayrilana.1396 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Bug fixes hopefully. Maybe fixes to the other areas of the game in anticipation for the meta event rush.

    I know. Since I had been getting the gathering nodes from each map for my home instance as well as buying the third tier Karmatic Conversions, I had been salvaging the map currency into Unbound and Volatile magic...so my currency cupboards are pretty much bare.

  • LucianDK.8615LucianDK.8615 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I hope to see some skyscale improvements based on the feedback. I like it and I hope to see it improved. Like a third stamina bar would do wonders for its performance.
