All dexterity based skills had their base dexterity damage boosted, meaning it will scale with dexterity builds and hopefully make it a more appealing build to all players.

No changes so far to any skill cast times.

This is the question I get asked most often too.

The second most often asked question is:
my guild members say their is a attack speed ring in the spring event can you tell me if their is and how will it cost

Answer: No, there is no attack speed ring in the Seasonal lux shop.

From my own opinion (Testing it)

Hopefully more viable but we will gauge player reception regarding further changes.


Your opinion is that of a level 100 ranger (where dex has always been a viable build). Complaints come from level 200+ rangers.

The "improvements" to dex builds really won't change anything. Not as long as endgame bosses reduce physical dmg taken by 90+ percent and divine dmg makes up most your dps. Your sharpshot will hit for 500 now instead of 400? Nice!

Same goes with mages; buff firebolt all you want and I'd still use my level 200 alt warrior over the best dps mage on the server on most endgame bosses. How sad
Level 220 mage- InnerCircle of Rhiannon
Necro, proteus, unox kills :D

Last I heard drop stats were being tweaked due to player feedback. they will be different from what we saw in beta.

I welcome Smolach back. not only does it keep the story consistent having him come back, but it frees up the art team to work on permanent content. It's a good compromise between the people that like events, and the people that want the team to work on more permanent content. Plus new stats and skills keep him interesting.
