    What exactly is the balancing on the Amazon’s berserk, by the way? Does it make her even more of a monster? It’s kind of scaring me how all the patches so far have been making the Amazon more and more strong, haha.

    • rekka_zan

      AFAIK the previous update nerfed her so much that many people complained because she was too weak.

    • Zarx

      Berserk effect disappeared a lot faster thanks to the patch, so the Amazon became less abusable. More durable guard is a big plus on my book though, gives Fighters more chances to stun elite mobs.

      • JustThisOne

        Alright, that’s fine with me. She could use a little nerfing, considering how parry now also triggers berserk.

  • DesmaX

    Sweet, putting markers for all the characters made me as lost as if they didn’t exist. I’ll put it to show it for only my character

  • WyattEpp

    I think I’ve said this before, but I’d really love to know what “Other tuning and minor improvements to various gameplay elements” actually means. Is there a detailed version somewhere? A group of otaku figuring it out or something?

    • Göran Isacson

      THIS. I’d really like some finer details on said changes, since “other tuning” doesn’t really tell me or… anyone a whole lot.

  • TheExile285

    These patches are great. I just hope Vanilla can finally work on that Muramasa DLC….

    • z_merquise

      Yeah, I’m also waiting for the Muramasa DLC too. But at least Dragon’s Crown still keep me occupied.

  • CaMo

    WTF? The Fighter is already the strongest class in the game.

  • Lightthrower

    Nerfed Berserk? Nooooooo!

  • Invisbin

    Not that this is a problem…but I haven’t heard of them touching the Elf :( She’s fine but why are they leaving my baby without nerfs/buffs :(. I wish her kick attacks were a tad bit stronger.

    • Kcin

      The Previous patch doesn’t mention it from my knowledge but the Deadly boots and Elemental lore skills were broken 2 patches ago where the modifiers weren’t acting as they should. So yeah, we haven’t see any actual changes to our girl, but they’ve fixed her to where we can be viable on kicks and magic builds now and not just arrow spam for damage.
      My current armor builds, most of them she consistently hits 2k-3.5k per hit on kick attacks while airborne, and the wind Lore hits 800-1.3k per hit on my int builds just to give an example of my typical damage ranges

      • Invisbin

        Damn. I use my magic and kicks a lot too. Only use arrows for emergencies

        • Kcin

          That’s how I play her as well. I prefer to shoot when I need you dead quick, and save my durability and oils for bosses or troublesome mobs. Although with lore buff, just making whirlpools on the kraken will put him down faster than using arrows which I find pretty hilarious.

          • Invisbin

            Lmao yeah we play the same. My friends think I play her in a crazy way. If I’m in the air, I use evasions to pinpoint or cancel my arrow charges.
