    The problem is that a 2H DK that can not heal tank fast enough, then he is not a viable option anymore. Being melee, he will be hit and if the damage is too high, he will die before regen. This will bring us back to R90-R130 times when 2h was still more of a niche build as opposed to a well accepted build. If the tank can not tank, then the build ceases to exist. I'll likely lose interest if I can not solo at a reasonable pace and have to rely on others to be able to play. I like being able to chose to play on my own or in a group.

    So I was looking forward to purchase the new set. I used the portal to get the older helmet obviously, as it was cheaper way.

    I do not like the helmet price increase, and the fact that some players should pay for it more than I paid. 1900 vs 3500 is sort of a big deal.

    I also do not like that glyphs cannot be restored during the upgrade. Perhaps, ppl should wait with the upgrade until glyphs can be taken out of the items. Unless you are The chosen one with 30k+ drakens.

    So the set. I thought it would be a replacement for my lvl50 karabosa. After testing it solo on m2, it is not. Even combined with the 22% dmg armor it is not. Even though I have three 125 armor Cyanite and two 30% more armor gems, armor increase does not really cover all the loses. And I lost 2% of att speed on gloves, 11% att speed on the set, 2% of the travel speed, some HP, some resist, some damage. I also lost the possibility to switch between fast and the damage boots. To balance that loss of speed I have to use extra knowledge points, but I loss either HP or damage again.

    The bonus for the 5 items doesn't really help. HoD 5k goes much easier with the kara+3K gold staff. But need to say this set works pretty good on the easier locations in the wand+book mode. I started seeing critical hits again.

    Worst thing about it is it has no HP. None. And my left side is also no HP, none. Only gems. So the HP talent points are less useful with this set.

    Perhaps I need to learn to better use it, but for now I'm back on karabossa.

    Mages always felt like they need someone, the DK, to team up. Solo was never an option if we talk about desirable pace. Even though mage+dk duo was a win-win, it was more about mage needs dk than vice versa. Perhaps BP wants DK to feel the same flavor of the game, wear the mage hat. I have seen multiple complains that DKs are OP because they can solo everything unlike other classes (with some exceptions). Maybe there is some sense in doing DK solo way harder. But I agree with you on the 'pace' part too) the question is what kind of pace should it be to be balanced across classes.

    Thanks for the testimony that verifies the prediction. Unfortunately, many will try to push through the deficit the dark set offers because the dark set has always had a "status" kind of thing attached to it. I am testing it also and finding the exact same thing you did. The biggest benefit ive found is using it with a shield as it offers higher crit than the Kara set does. And in minimal threat areas amping up the crit with it and quiver is fun. But, overall not a very balanced set on its own, and will take significant effort to find good pieces to augment it.

    Might be too late now. The hand could be traded in the last two times.

    Could they restore the Drakenache set to Gnob, while they are reworking the new pieces?
    One of our guildies went to the store, draken in hand, and the cup board was bare.
    It might be a long wait.

    I love the dark set. I will build up draken for now on. This gear makes so very very happy.

    While you amass the Draken, be sure to look for complementary items to cover the lack of HP (but you knew that already xD).

    you can always use hp gems

    =S that's my problem right now, in the challenge map there is 1 boss which can kill me in 1 hit, if I dont use jump or charge at the proper time I am dead DK, right now my goal is to upgrade all my gear to at least lvl 50 and maybe things may change.

    True, though maybe not everyone has enough of those to cover what they lost (i.e. if they lost 1000 HP, they'd need a lot of amethysts xD)... one can also always complement with left-side items as well.

    For me best thing at Gnob atm are colours, lol. Had a lot of stuff already, bought new dark set for upcoming achievement, wand isn't even worth buying. Hoping that more stuff will come:) Heard smth about reworked Dragonache set, let's hope it'll be worth it

    Speaking of which... I put on one piece of the new set and it counted towards the old set's achievement...

    I like the new set. It is powerful, but not overpowered. It introduces a new gameplay, which is surely a step in a good direction. Also it is compatible with some other sets in parts. This set combining thing is important, because endgame is so much about it.

    Draken feel a bit useless atm. About 6 sets for draken to choose from would be great. Also there are no belts or weapon adornments to buy for draken. Please offer something else than the Dragon set, it is pretty useless for builds that are not based on critical, the thing that just got nerfed.

    This old Defender set was never finished. I dont like loose ends. Why not bring a buffed 5 parts defenders set with focus on defense? Defense is coming a bit to short lately while everyone has a glascannon now, even DKs without wanting it^^
