Something occurred today during the patch notes that I want to address with the community. We posted a pending bug fix for the Spartacus Item
- Spartacus gains "Nullify reduction in damage inflicted on enemies resulting from enemy's size."
- Spartacus loses "Increases damage versus all sizes by 100%"
This caused some issues for users as we had previously stated that the item effects were currently intended.
We implement OCP gears as we receive them from the studio. From time to time gears have the effects changed due to balance or other concerns. When we receive the latest effect settings we will review to make sure what we have is up to date. To be clear eventually the update will have to happen but it will happen with a proper notice period. Any nerfs planned for OCP items will occur with at least 3 months notice in patch notes and an item description update indicating the approximate date of the pending change.
During this period if you have refined one of these items in order to take advantage of their effects. We will be willing to transfer the refine to the same weapon level/gear slot of your choice. (Example Level 3 weapons can only be transferred to Level 3 or Below Weapons, Upper Headgear to Upper Headgear, etc) Requests must be submitted before the changes take effect. This notice will ALSO be posted on the item description.
Please wait until 6/8 to submit any tickets so the GMs can be notified of the process.
Currently there are 6 items that need their effects reviewed/adjusted in the manner.
- Spartacus (See above)
- Valkyrie Drop (Loses 50% FCT Reduction. Gains Skill Targeted FCT Reduction)
- Devil's Hand (Loses 50% FCT Reduction. Gains Skill Targeted FCT Reduction)
- Cylinder Hairband (Refine Level Required Increased to +8, was +7)
- Red Lotus Stole (Refine Level Required Increased to +10, was
- Phreeroni Wing (Loses + Hit, gains + Perfect Hit)
Currently the date set for these changes is: October 11th, 2018
Please understand that this process also includes resolving the reports of bugs and missing effects regarding many other OCP items. During the coming weeks you will be seeing many items adjusted to their net benefit of their owners, as we work with the studio to make sure we have the latest effects..
