However since omega and tempering solution gone this means plume gone ? bracelet gone ? essence core gone too ? O.o
If essence core gone ? the whole cp system gone too ? O.o

I'm very pleased with this update news :)

Expect the level 80 AP and enhanced Harvester gears to be obsoleted very quickly once Refly launches. They say that the existing gear will have low effectiveness in the new content.

Makes me somewhat glad I haven't been taking any of the content seriously since 5.0, but this revamp is really a slap in the face of their most dedicated players...

Judging by their previous attempts at re-balancing clothies, Hell would freeze over before SWs were nerfed :P

In all seriousness though, they admitted fault with 5.0, so there is hope...

I actually feel it will be really likely to happen. For instance, pre 3.0 mobs heavily favoured magical classes, than MS and other stuff was introduced. They had a hard-on for Gunners, then 4.8 happened. Their hard-on moved on to SWs and 2.x content. 2. content is now fully left behind. Now, its logically the SW's turn to be the next Gunner. :P

People's memories are so selective. Before magic suppression sets were ever heard of, clerics could roll around in MR sets that had no cap. Godstones benefit physical classes a lot more that magical classes (with the exception of the recently introduced ATs and gunners, who definitely benefit from them).

Everyone wants to swing the nerf bat at some class, we certainly needs some adjustments, it's way overdue.   No class is useless at the moment but there are a few that could use some buffs for quality of life reasons.

Me and my friend have a plan to quit until 6.0 right now,if leveling to 75 become a stupidly easy then why we work now ? we should just wait for 6.0 and come back

Event ? tempering solution and omega useless ? primary manastone useless ? harvester gears useless ? what's the point to farm them ? :/

6.0 just nailed the coffin on 5.8 >_>

I wanna see how many new levels there are because if they make it max level 100 and it only takes you 2 weeks from 75-100 then NCwest should get permission to have a 500% XP increase till the release of 6.0.

Reading all this since yesterday and I'm a bit surprised but also hyped... lol There were rumors that they would remove Archdaeva or at least rewrap the whole thing into a "new" Archdaeva, but there are more changed (going back to old content) than expected. Guess we can just wait and follow up with the infos. I do agree on one point so far though that this is a slap in the face for those who were actively playing starting the 5.0 patch with all the new content and now they'll get rid of it... *smh* Curious to see how they will do this though.

I'm curious about luna system more,maybe it will give no exp in instances anymore and giving items only.

That's what I'm wondering too is what they will do with Luna. I also hope for the love of all that is holy to raise the essencetapping and aethertapping cap finally.

So Essence Cores are going to be removed too?

Is the compensation worth it? Because people spent billion+ kinah in these items

 

Can't wait for class rebalance

Since they are removing Archedaeva system, the CP / Essence Core system will be changed.

I do not know they are completely removing the CP and Essence Core but they said you get the item called "Bullion" based on the Essence Core lvl.

The item "Bullion" is new money system, it can be used to buy high value items that you will be using after 6.0 update.

They also said you can change your Kinah to "Bullion" after patch hits.

I look forward for the class rebalance as well. :D

When they mention removal of archdaeva, do you think the level 75-99 elemental transformations will be removed?

And no compensation for Essence Cores +4 or below? I have a bunch of +3 Essence Cores equipped on my characters...

We will have to wait for the next article for that information. But I still believe they shouldn't remove it. It was a nice touch to have for PvE (at least two of them).

They allowed me to easily solo stuff that I cannot get people for, and during bosses, they are for some groups, especially for the burn down time. It was also nice, as a Chanter, going into an instance, transforming and out-DPSing everyone else. Made me feel good.

The only thing they should do is disabling it in battlegrounds. (Though it was fun how I once won OW alone against 3 others)

If they do those drastic changes NC can screw off. Those changes take the "Work work work for a year! oops, next patch makes it all pointless!" to a laughable level. What the actual F. :(

So? You spent billions on your essence core and has been using it for 6 months (and will use it for 6 more if they dont rush the update) so why would you expect a stelar compensation?

Actually, 90%- and I was referring only to MR) -, my bad- close enough, and the cap or nerf was only introduced in patch 4.7 (50%)   i.e.  the chance to resist.

(in actuality, 90 % was bad enough)

I hope they do, they aren't needed,  they certainly throw any class balance off, and didn't add anything at all to  PVE or PVP. If they want to keep them, let them introduce them for a specific PVE instance, like they did for Taloc's Hallow, otherwise get rid of it.
