Deutsch: [Part I: bug fixing] [Part II: balancing & skills]

Hello everyone!

Second Dawn marked a shift in our priority regarding the development of the game, while we initially wanted to prioritize new league content and the new chapter, the feedback from our community was unanimous, and we totally agree with you: the game needed to be fixed, and polished as much as possible before adding new content.

Second Dawn started 5 months ago, after patch 1.0.4, and ends 11 patches later with patch 1.0.16. During these 5 months, we focused on identifying and fixing the most issues possible. We received precious feedback from our community on a daily basis, this greatly helped us identifying and prioritizing bug fixing.

The end of Second Dawn does not mean that every bug is fixed, nor that we will stop fixing them. We will continue working hand in hand with our community to make sure the game keeps getting better, hotfixes and bug fixing will still occur after Second Dawn, to give the healthiest environment possible for new content to be added, starting with the first Chronicle coming this Autumn.

Thank you all for your support and your feedback! And here are the Patch Notes:

Oh my lets test it ^^

Summons are still a bit dumb: if enemies come near them while they stand still, they won't attack, until player moves around. This is bit annynoing

Seems that summons do more damage when player is using a dagger than 2H staves

It's good. But when will they do the same damage on a bow as on a 2H weapon?

Probably at the same time, when the survivability of archers will be the same as that of carriers of 2H weapons.

What are the characteristics of your computer? Compare them with the recommended ones.

Created: 1 week, 2 days ago

+1 to +4 from level 21 to level 30.

How do we have to read this?

Does this mean:
A)
Per level:
Minimum damage +1 and maximum damage +4
(Not saying anything about the original values)

B)
Per level:
Original value: +1 damage
New value: +4 damage


Because for % based skills, option A feels weird:
+1% to +7.2% weapon damage from level 81 to level 90.

Hi Woezie!

It's the later, the spell used to gain +1 damage per level from level 21 to 30, now it's +4. :)

Well, my computer is weaker, but fps is stable over 100. But still there are micro lags in fights, although fps does not sag.

This patch is great, Wolcen is almost out of beta with it but you really should have implemented the new damage recalculation method instead of balancing all those skills.
There are quite a few changes in this patch that buff an active skill modifier's damage bonus from 10% to 20% and stuff like that. Why on earth would you spend even 1 minute on stuff like this when that extra 10% additive damage increase has absolutely zero effect compared to the 800%+ you can easily get from attributes?
You also buffed the added damage bonus on spells quite significantly (the combined bonus damage of a level 90 version of some of the spells is now ten times what it used to be). Why would you spend time on this when you will have to change the flat values to percentages after you redesign spell damage to work with weapon damage?

This feels like you wasn't confident about the damage calculation redesign so you did this bandaid skill balancing. I would have gladly waited for another 2 weeks instead and get the fixed damage calculation so I could stop dumping all my points into a single attribute.

This game is great! So much fun with it. played it now for like 130h so it is already worth the money!! balancing patch is nice and gives you much more diversity - but this base weapon damage you are talking about is really needed - looking forward to it and in the mean time I have fun with looting :-)

Aspect of Apocalypse - the damage of them is so low now, that they are pretty much useless.

Gunslinger's Brand „Fixed an issue preventing the "Wild Gunsman" Modifier to hit close targets after the first shot.“
it's not fixed, there are enemies, which dont get hit at all by Gunslinger's Brand, regardless of the range. I can see the hit animation, but it deals no damage at all.
e.g. * Savior-Maw Mortarbeast * Demon of Souls * that Lambach Tentacle that spawns monsters * Shadow Spawn (or Soul Spawn, the bigger version of it) * flying enemies

apart from the above (incomplete) list of enemies who almost always get not hit at all from Gunslinger's Brand, the skill is always missing some of the 10 hits it deals, which makes it frustrating to use.


so yeah, please don't handle this issue as fixed as it's clearly not and investigate a bit further, ty :3
