Median XL 2017
Probably one of the coolest changes in this patch, the damage rework by suchbalance. It consists of reducing monster health and character damage by 8 everywhere. In theory the damage will still feel the same, however this change brings a lot of good features. This will allow us to get rid of Heroic Shields, prevent any kind of damage cap issues, numbers will be smaller and simpler, and possibly, PVP battles will last longer as well.
Wonderful news, can't wait! I'm genuinely surprised that reducing the damage output of the player to 1/8 of what currently is will allow the removal of heroic shields, I'd have guessed something more along the line of 1/12.
Is the doc being worked on during the development process too? cause it would be great to have a reliable source for various info just as the new version hit. I'm also hyped for the new uberquests, I'm wondering if they'll be summoning quests since (probably I'm wrong) I recall reading somewhere that new areas couldn't be implemented.
