Hello all, I have been patient and VERY respectful in the past from people bad mouthing archers.... however the way we are targeted now is making myself and A LOT of other archers I know think of quitting or very close to it..... We were told on twitter that the top 25 players for dps in the game are all fire mages, however once again archers get the biggest nerf this recent patch NOT fire mages. This wouldn't bother me if it wasn't quickly becoming a new trend. In the last few patches the following BIG changes to archery were done: -Shield of air changed -Movement speed reduced which affects kiting ( which I don't care what some say it is noticeable and not right imo). -Aimed shot loses dmg if you are moving ( which is bad because kiting is BIG in archery) -Multiple skills in the archery tree now cost more focus then before -Bard savage sonata has a 50% reduction ( which affects all melee classes but does not hurt mages the top dpsers at all) Yet all mages who again are the TOP dpsers (according to the devs on twitter) had a small change of one crit tick and a 0.5 second cast. I spoke with 3 fire mages about the changes and they said they didn't even notice a change at all, where in the last month my dps has gone down by 1/2 (not exaggerating) my speed decreased, I take more damage and use more focus. I am sorry for the complaints and saying archery is being a HUGE target but it is getting really really hard to accept these changes when they are only seriously changing one class. Again I am not upset about the changes, I do think change is needed everywhere, but at this point I am feeling punished for playing my archer toon since alpha where the top dpsers get no change all because people complained about being 1 shot in pvp. (honestly this is why I think we are targeted is because of the pvp complaints.) This is not meant to target or complain about anyone it is to show my feelings on these recent changes since I know I am not the only one and feel the devs should know this and relax on the archer for a little.... If not I won't quit right away, instead I will just play fire mage since they have top dps and clearly arnt a target to pvp complaints. I have a feeling there will be a huge swarm of fire mages soon and a lot of archery gear for sale if things don't change. Not saying nerfs arnt needed but do it fairly across the board not pummel one class at a time, because then they feel singled out. Oh and stop listening to pvp complaints when it comes to pve! they ARE NOT the same thing! Thank you for your time and hope I wasnt too abrupt.
