View Full Version : Is our power pool broken or?

02-18-2005, 12:07 AM
I just finished reading some posts in the Tech Support forum that indicate it appears our AGI is no longer affecting our power pool as it should. Any other indications of this?Please note, this isn't a rant on the so-called AGI nerf. I'm not talking about the loss of avoidance due to AGI buffs decreases.... I'm talking about no increase in the power amount for AGI items being added.To test it, do this: take off all your armor and magic items with stats. Find one that give an AGI stat addition of 4 or 5. Make sure it's attuned. Now, with it off, look at your total power amount in persona. Equip the attuned item. Make sure the AGI figure has increased by the amount the item was supposed to increase it. Check your power total. It should now be more than it just was.So far, what I've read is it (AGI) appears to no longer be affecting the power totals at all. This is definitly a class-killer. Without power to match the given learned skills we cannot remain viable at all.

<DIV>Word is that we've been changed to INT base for power.  I'm at work and cannot test, but there is a post on the dirge board about this.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>If that's the case, my biggest issue with it is that we now have to worry about 3 stats instead of two.  I've worked all my gear up for AGI first, STR second, and if our power base is changed that means your consideration would become INT, STR, AGI.  And it would also be nice to have equal INT on my PGT to the AGI bonus I was getting from it, along with any number of other high end items.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Would be nice to have a patch note if this was an intended change.</DIV>

Oh dear God. How much more do they want to nerf us?!I'm a level 36 troubadour. Before the patch today (17th) my mana was 1392. Now, after the patch, it's down to 1097 - even after I'd attuned all the items that had reverted to not attuned status.Because of work and social commitments, I knew when I bought this game that I could only play one character to a maximum level. I opted for the bard/troubadour because it seemed to offer so much to a group AND provide some decent soloing potential. Increasingly though, I'm thinking hard about deleting my troub and leaving the game - all because SOE has chipped away at our effectiveness and given very little in return (ooh, mana regen lasts a bit longer! Big deal).Yours very unhappy

<DIV>Check the mod tracker.  Moorguard posted that it was unintended and they're looking into it.</DIV>
