So for the last 9 months, we have been crafting single stat BIS 500k-2M (!!!) gold items.
You are now introducing a buff to just split stat non con gear, potentially allowed for 50 extra points (40 from armor and 10 from weapons).
Lets take little Timmy’s bis light melee build he spent 5million gold on. Now he has to spend another 8 months searching for the perfect STR/INT BIS 3 perk gear so he can run the new flavor light melee build (thanks to your intelligence changes for +10 crit damage). All light melee’s who slay healers in war will need to go 350 str/50int/150 con. It will be the most absurd damage dealing build there is.
With one caveat- the gear will not exist for a long time and it will sell for gold cap+ on every piece.
There will be many builds that will switch to this split stat junk because you are forcing it down our throats.
Why not buff ALL attributes on armor and make them +30 or +15/+15??
Again, you are creating problems by coming up with solutions to problems that simply DO NOT EXIST.
I made a previous post that has received over 5K views and 500+ replies to which NON of you devs or CMs replied.
Lets see if this gets any exposure and let me reiterate this again= YOUR TEAM ALMOST NEVER MAKES THE RIGHT DECISIONS, TAKE OUR FEEDBACK SINCERELY.
There is no reason to push for this split stat nonsense other than to ostracize the players who cannot afford the gear (which is the vast majority).
You have 17K players left from your original 1M. Help us, help you keep your jobs. I forecast a couple thousand would quit after your open world PVP GC nerf and I was right. You peaked at 20K players at the beginning of June and are now finishing June with 17K. You are making it harder and harder for your loyal fans to play this game with each patch.
I love how you are increases overall damage and making some perks actually useful (Empowering armor breaker still needs to be changed to on hit instead of on block break) however, with every step forward you take 15 back with absoutely uneccessary changes like this split stat “buff.”
Either remove this nonsense or make it so all stats get the new +5.
