    The nerfing of damage resistance is just terrible. It removes the "tank" build completely. It seemed perfect the way it was... why was it changed? I'm GM in nearly all the damage resistance skills and am now getting killed by a few green level creatures. Please bring DR back to the way it was. I don't want to re-spec my avatar from scratch.

    I completely agree, my build is a joke now! I rarely complain, but this nerf has made the game all but unplayable for me. I am getting creamed by low level mobs (I'm AL 83). I can forget about soloing any higher level areas like I used to. It was challenging, but I could at least do it. Now i'm torn to shreds! PLEASE FIX!

    Why the heck did they think they needed to change it in the first place?

    As a completely DR build leather wearing archer... I am afraid to try and finish the game now, as I still have to go through Grannus Colossus to get the lens, and the barbarians there were difficult enough to deal with without a change to DR.

    Because it was possible to mitigate 100% of all physical damage before.

    I feel for you. I am relieved I've finished the storyline because I don't think I could do it now with this DR change. Combat isn't something I want to be doing anymore until this is fixed.

    I don't know of anyone that was anywhere near 100 percent DR. I can understand them reducing the max damage resistance level to well below 100 - but to reduce the base DR to half of what it was is ridiculous.

    Then the change should be to cause damage to the armor commensurate with the percentage blocked, modified by skills and other modifiers as applicable... I know you're just being the messenger, so I apologize now for the snark.

    It shouldnt affect those huge hits much. It will be much more noticable on things that dont hit in the hundreds.

    I.E. something that woulda hit you for like 0 or 5 might hit you for 20-30 instead

    That's a six-fold increase in damage at a minimum... if you're only looking at the high end of the range. That is simply crazy.

    So... I was running tier 3 areas at Adv level 45... Now that I'm 68, I'll be headed back to tier 3? Wtf...

    Edit: Not nearly as bad as I was hearing... I guess being squishy to begin with, I am used to taking damage, which is where the complaint is stemming from.

    hmmm I'm not sure where to fall on this. Bowen is a full plate, no magic character. Level 76 now. Recently I took him to Deep Ravenswood. Without using a single skill, elder wolves literally could do nothing. Obsidian Bears? Could barely make a scratch. I turn on defensive stance and even Obsidian Bears could literally do no damage. Not even a single point. That's just not right guys.

    Was it fun? Did it make me feel like I could kick butt? Sure.. but then it also made skills feel obsolete and over powering. It's hardly surprising something had to be done.

    Was it too much? With my skills I could mitigate nearly 60 points of physical damage.. Now I can guarantee up to about 37 damage.. well I'm on way back to see how I do..

    Not everyone could do that, now it's more difficult for everybody - in every situation.
