There were some unintended changes applied to Health Regen Perks due to a change to Hungering Blade. You can read the [url=https://www.bungie.net/en/News/Article/45661/7_Destiny-Hotfix---21417]full Patch Notes[/url] here and the further Explanation of what happened [url=https://www.bungie.net/en/Forums/Post/222240682]here.[/url] In the last 3 days since the Hotfix we have been listening to the feedback from the community and been working on some corrections . Our current plan is to roll back most of the unintended changes like Ward of Dawn cast, and Embrace the void. You can read the full list of rollbacks below. The other affected Perks are getting different changes that the Sandbox design team believes will be more beneficial to the game rather than simply rolling back to the old settings. Here is Sandbox Designer Josh Hamrick with an explanation of the changes. [quote][b]Josh Hamrick[/b]: When we talked about Regen earlier in the week I ambiguously talked about what and when we would be making changes because I wasn’t entirely sure. The majority of the change wasn’t intentional, but when I looked at the problem from afar, I could see how it may be beneficial in some ways after hearing feedback from the community following the Sandbox preview stream. For example, some of you had concerns that Hungering Blade was changing while other similar perks, such as Cauterize, were not. This unintended change was going to give us the ability to see what that would look like to make both of those changes. I wanted to make it clear that it was possible that we could find something that we wanted to keep. I didn’t want to say that we’d put it all back, when we might not. Having an enemies ability or attack be able to completely erase any progress you've made and completely reset an encounter feels bad. Also, when 1 hit kill weapons are less dominant those abilities and attacks become more dominant, as they are much harder to stop. This change allows those abilities and attacks to still recover large portions of health and buy themselves more time without completely resetting the encounter and negating all cumulative damage that had come before. We have watched and listened all week and this is the current plan moving forward. I’m going to give numbers so that you have all the info, but [b][u]THESE NUMBERS MAY CHANGE:[/u][/b] For each of the elements below we are going to keep the change, but buff the amount of health you get back (+58%) - Hungering Blade - Red Death - Lifesteal - Transfusion (we are also removing the cooldown) - Cauterize (we are also removing the cooldown) For all the rest, we will be reverting the change entirely - Suros Regime - No Backup Plans - Ward of Dawn cast - Apotheosis Veil - Embrace the Void[/quote] We do not have a date that these changes will take place but are currently working on them and conducting tests. It is early in the process, so all of this is subject to change. But as of now, this is the plan. We will give you more details about when you can expect to see these changes in the game as soon as we can.
Here's an idea: Balance PvE and PvP separately. As a PvE Bladedancer... Yes, despite the shit your encounter designers pull. You should probably hire better encounter designers, another free tip from me to you. What's the going rate for a consultant at Bungie any-way? Back on track: As a PvE Bladedancer I've grown more than weary of the constant "balancing". And no, the patch of gimmickry did not improve the situation to any significant enough degree to off set the endless stream of adjustments in an effort to "balance" PvP. It only cemented the go to choices as the go to choices for PvE. The game-play has become worse with every new patch. I used to be able to melee bosses with my melee focused sub-class because I had a decent amount of damage reduction while my super was active. I used to be able to go fast and was mobile, blinking from left to right without any cool down or UI shenanigans. But who am I kidding, you neither will read this, nor does the development team to have any care or clue about PvE players. I mean, how long have we being waiting for a fix for the Sword ammo bug?
