Guardian - War Chant (have fun while it lasts)


  1. I wrote the change note incorrectly. War-chant should still do light damage, but should pull from your physical (rather than tactical) damage source. This is, for almost all guardians, a major buff. AFAIK, it is currently working correctly.

  2. I forgot to adjust the base damage of the skill when I did this and now it will hit much too hard for an AoE, so I will have to re-tune it shortly. I suggest you not expend significant resources to take advantage of it until it is rebalanced properly (which should be fairly soon).

Hrm. I think War Chant was changed to pull from your physical dmg source? Hopefully it didn’t change to physical dmg.

Also, may need a base damage adjustment with the source change in any case - probably kinda op right now if it is pulling properly. I made this particular change quickly and probably did not review its final damage values sufficiently.

EDIT: Yeah, on review War-chant is kind of ovetuned at the moment. The physical source draw made it enormously more potent, so I’m going to have to bring down the base multiplier. Should still be pretty good afterwards, just not insane AoE.

Well now…ring of fire got a damage increase?

/becomes even more reckless on lore master

And thank god the female elf npcs got there hair sorted out. This was totally impacting my immersion in the game. Obviously.
