I love MMORPG..but every game gets nerfed to death..so sick of it...

Lets see my wizard sucks big time after level 37...moorguard said they are aware of it like 3-4 weeks ago...i dont believe any promises from them..

now they messed up so many other classes..monks (which i started one till they fixed wizard), and scouts..with the agility nerf...

to add all that i am an alchemists..and they made it much harder to get pristine inks..and on top of that nerf our sellback prices to many of our items...

what the point...i am so sick of getting nerfed every time...

I dont want to go to WoW..becuase i know same things will happen...thinking of just quitting MMORPG for a while now

If you think it's bad now, wait until they decide to introduce PvP and start tweaking everything to try to achieve "balance".

"Nerfing" happens in every game because well its called balancing, some classes usuaully tend to be more powerful or have abilties that were never intended to work a certain way, get over it.

If you dont like the optimizing and changing things then don't play a MMORPG, they are made to evolve. Go play Lineage 2 and have a great gank fest...

Taking a break from EQ 2 myself. The game simply isn't finished IMO. I like the changes that are coming down the line for solo players. Some of the graphic changes on the armors were nice except now if you had a matching set you are SOL at low to mid levels. One of my alts looks like he is wearing cordovan with an 'etched' style tunic. Which is of course the quest tunic you get when you become class X at 10th that use to appear as cordovan, or med iron chain. The iron chain appearing BP now looks like carbonite chain.

Crikey that red and white armor is HIDEOUS. I don't care what stats is on it I will never look like a tylenol bottle or santa claus.

They made me laugh with the Berserker nerf, not that it wasn't warranted. Their attitude seemed to be, "The Berserker AOE does what?" *Chuckles* Wonder why they don't know what a L20 ability does in a game they made. Did they Beta this thing?

There are people complaining about the Paladin nerf with one of the seals, it lowers the damage you do and increases your attack rate, before the actual fix it did way more damage than it was suppose to do. Now the ability works as intended and people are crying about it.

Actually the agi nerf was balancing. Watching an agi twinked monk never get hit by a legendary mob was kinda scary.

yeah but that only happend levels 40+ and with agility buffed to 200-300

what they did is overnerf where a monk can no longer be the main tank anymore..at levels 20+ when the problem wasnt there

I have no problem with the balance..but they did not really fix the issue, just made it worst now

I take it you dont play any classes that get hit big time from nerfs and i bet you dont do crafting

I play a class that is almost useless. My attack and Defense is pathetic and I probably have the most useless spells/abilties out of all the classes... a ShadowKnight...

As for a Monk not being able to tank, well DUH. They aren't tanks or ever remotly suppose to be one. They are Purely Dmg based class, if they were ment to tank they would be wearing plate.

Remember back in the day they said "Every Fighter class will be able to tank sufficiently." Yea, I do too. What happened? Nerf....

Umm why are they fighter archtype? Why not make them scouts?

Here is a thread and what moorguard had to say and you can see all legit compaints

They can tank for lower level mobs but not for group based mobs, Thier AC is not as good as any plate or chain wearing class.

Priest's aren't dmg dealers but can also do a decent amount as a last resort, consider Monks a last resort tank...

your thinking is EQ1...not EQ2


it not suppose to be like that..they made it supposedly that any fighter archtype can tank, so you dont have to sitting around LFG waiting for the warrior..or waiting for a cleric..like in EQ1

Their AC is not about wearing armor..it about avoidance...guardians use mitigation, but monks use avoidance.

I have to say, I don't think monks should tank anyway. They are DPS as others have said. They sit to the side or behind and deal damage while the true tanks (zerkers and guardians) with the heavy armor take damage in the front. Yes monks are fast, but some mobs are fast to, thus you will get hit from time to time. I agree they shouldn't have nerfed as bad as they did though, but it does make sense to some degree..I'm a bit bumed myself as my level 10 alt is a rouge. Might be time to re-roll. At least he's only 10...They nerfed my main a while back but not too bad (25 zerker)...

Well I went back to my wizard for now, he not as bad as my monk..and at least Moorgaurd admitted there is an issue with wizards/warlocks and they plan on adjusting it soon...though I dont beleive everything sony promises with their track record...but at least got a better chance...lol

and for the record I have had Shadowknights out DPS me as a wizard...so they not as bad as you think they are
