    WOOOOHOOOOO.... Finally! No Ess in PVP!!!!

    A GREEEAT step in the right direction imo.
    Now if POTs and Buffs would happen to disappear as well... we might be getting somewhere.

    Not to take away from this magnificent change (3 years in the making) but...
    Main problem with PVP is the wait.

    Once upon a time... You could grab a couple of your buddies and jump right into game after game of 3v3.
    Those where the days! PVP was about skill and TEAMWORK and most impotantly... FUN!

    I really like the update overall. The colored drops stand out a lot more, but the coins seem to blend in more than they used to.

    As far as the group finder goes, it would be nice to see the single person groups who are offline removed from the search.

    No essence but green is a great idea glad to have it. My old guild used to have a ton of toons the same level and we had 12 for 6v6. There was 0 wait times. PVP funness at it's best. If you have 6 at the same level can try 3v3 but might not work depends on the level.

    This is probably the best update in my entire DSO history. I love the cooldown refactoring and the removal of blue-red essence from PvP.

    Like some have mentioned, the group finder needs to be refined. Seeing lots of offline groups bugs me a lot. There needs to be an online/offline indicator next to the group to show that the group leader is on or not, or just not show the group at all since it's a waste of space. It would also be helpful if we can categorize the exact location when searching for available groups. For example, I want to join a map2 group but I see lots of Grimmagstone, Catacombs, etc groups in the list. If we can just use a hierarchy system to narrow down the results, that would be great. One more thing would be an option to add a group description so we know what exactly the group is doing and needs. An example would be, "Mortis group looking for level 45 Dragonknight." or "5v5 only".

    The glowing effect on item drops helped tremendously to cut down on the reliance for Control key. The only things I don't like is that gems don't glow and the health orbs look plain and washed out. Not sure what happened to the shiny and polished texture.

    The cooldown refactoring is my favorite part of the update. I was always peeved when I activated Wood Wraith or Bird of Prey and I died or got interrupted before my skills actually came out. That's a 60 sec/30 sec loss there and really affected my PvP before. Now thanks to this update, I can actually use them without fail and worry.

    With all this said, this is the most useful update to me in a long while. Glad it wasn't one of those updates which takes away from the user experience.

    I like the new glowing effect but I don't like new coin's drop display ... they are almost unnoticeable.
    I don't like the new groups display. What I play, where I play and with whom I play is my and nobody else's business. If I say the group is full ... even only with me in it ... that means it is full. There is no need of whispers like: "I know your group is not full why don't you invite me", "I can see where and with whom you are playing" ... etc.

    Trying to join a group with no one on-line? Waste of time and big nuisance.
    Can you auto remove a group that is completely inactive? Reactivating it could be automatic or manual.

    I am standing in watery grave and wanted to join a group in q5
    Opened the window group and what appeared?
    220 groups ***?:eek:

    It would be nice to sort the groups not only by name, number of members(not really working) and groupleader
    but add maybe actual location and required level!;)
    Enable Friends-Group-List would be nice too. I want to click a friend and see which group he is in. :)

    skill cooldown still not working properly, if you use a skill which is not executed correctly (ie - guardian / meteor ) during PvE and PvP the skill goes into cooldown, not 1 second and u can use the skill correctly, so i guess it is only working if you are interrupted during execution of said skills, meh, there is always something suggested which never meets our expectations :D

    glitch has appeared in DK skill warcry it doesnt give rage half the time :/

    I've noticed the same glitch with rage jump on my DK.

    Colored drops are a welcomed improvement but black onyxes are easy to overlook on dark backgrounds and I nearly overlooked a couple of rubies, mistaking them for health spheres.

    Removal of blue-red essences from PVP is a step in the right direction but, as has already been mentioned, health pots should also be banned from the arena.

    Allowing us to name our group is also a great addition, but redundant groups must be removed from the list.

    But sadly, after all these updates and fixes the game is still randomly plagued by black screen crashes when clicking to transition between maps. Before all else, the removal of this bug should've been one of your top priorities!

    Is it just me or has this release weakened SW once more... Been able to stop execution of the skills of DK and Ra was like the main advantage of those pathetic 2 sec stuns SW has.

    Except of that i do love the release xD

    all i can is a EDIT.
    pvp i run slower i shoot slower,less damage dealt.
    wth r u doing? stop tweaking ARE toons !! and if u do,let us know what u did.
    cant hardly play now in pvp.

    let me guess,you have those speed gems at jesters. so you decreased our run speed ?

    wep speed gems so you decreased our wep speed?

    am i missing something here? does everybodies toon have that laid back feel? like its not the same as it was?

    unless you have them gems,so basically i built up my toon so u can cut it down,,,nice job,,thx

    Overall really like this release. As usual, the graphics gang is all over it and does a great job. This time the colored drops are a nice touch. The gem change is also a nice thing. Now if they would just enhance the mouse pointer I'd recommend a pay raise.

    Big score on the ess removal.

    The interrupt reset of skills is not working all the time. I can't figure out what makes it work and not work though. It isn't specific skills for me or anything that seems to be the same all the time. It just seems to function then not. What's worse, new, and I think related; my Adrenalin Rush does not always refill concentration. Haven't seen anyone else report that so not sure if it is just me or related to the DK bug with rage jump.

    The group element is a good idea, but needs to be refined. Countless groups is sensory overload. I've also seen the same player listed in more than one group, so my confidence in getting what I am looking for is low. I love the grp invite block feature. A nice addition to this would be a search utility. Type in a player or location (ex. HOD) and only see the searched item.

    Overall well done and I'm sure the feedback will help refine the new features.

    I dunno if its just with me , but i have the feel im clicking twice for my ranger wolves. I see sorta highlight stuff when i press first but nothing happens. Also , fix when they dont show. Yesterday it happens a lot , one time two times its ok since we know a lot of non fixed problems on the game , but hey when starts to happen frequently its a big problem. Everybody know if the ranger doesnt have any set to heal himself , the only thing they can count is on wolves.

    Hey could someone else check this out to see if it is me or not. The honor fame tree lvl 30 quicker misses seems broken. I see no change in or out of pvp. I can see a change with 7% Attack speed over 5.4% Attack speed.
