      I agree, I feel like this gear is too powerful. Compare, for instance, TSera T3 against Scout Harding + the new Gear.

      SH has
      - All attack instead of column (which also helps with the Zither/Maryden/RLIB style on attack buffs)
      - No risk of slowing teammates (freeing up gear choices)
      - Penalty-free stealth since TSera has to use Lurker Scales

      On top of the raw benefit of being a Quick+1 round Slow All hero who was powerful already.

      Not to mention all of the other quick round rogues who get buffed who are in meta right now (Nathanial Howe, for instance).

      Quick round was already extremely strong, and now the decent teams that weren't quick round just fall further behind.

      Oh, and it also increases crit chance and provides a flat resist bonus, just to make things even more powerful.

      We also need to keep in mind the opportunity costs here which also will lead to an imbalanced meta. If I have this gear on my quick round heroes I no longer have to run Speed + Power Runes to deal with other quick round squads, I can instead run double Power runes because I know I have the "free" quick rune effect off the gear. So the advantage that full quick teams have over "mixed initiative" teams like non-dupe wardens or Venatori just gets bigger. Given that power gain is already at high enough levels to make most slow squads obselete this looks to be a very troubling piece of gear.

          so, will the black fox's jerkins be exclusive for CP\GCP? or it will be added into Right Armor with next content release?

              It will follow the same release pattern as all other gear. Note, however, that it is featured within the CP/GCP starting this afternoon, meaning this is your absolute best chance to get the gear, for the next 3 weeks, and then chances go back down as it cycles out of being featured.

                So when it is released seems like TS3 and AT become useless. Will be cool swapping TS3 out for a fast TS4 or TS1, maybe even SH for my TRA farming

                  You nerfed some OP meta, then you add in some much more OP stuff?
                  What's holding TS3 and AT back is they are not very strong themselves, and they don't attack all. TS3 even has more draw back that slows her teammates.
                  Now you just complete eliminate such draw back, and it even gives +10% all effect resists. +6% 2X damage chance?

                  Now it'll be significantly harder to climb in normal PVP event or GW Onslaught, and you'll lose a lot if you don't run a speed rune every single time.

                  Not to mention no team without this OP gear stand a chance in PG high rank.

                  Hate to be that guy, but are you just go back to the direction towards P2W territory again? I'm not an expert on such thing, this OP gear might net you some more profit, but I don't think it'll be good for the game's sustainability.

                    Well, it will be widely available in 3 weeks, and veteran players also have a good bunch of gems available to buy... it's a very little and very reasonable step towards P2W.

                    That said, I agree that this gear is very, very powerful, and I'm also afraid it could cause imbalances. But let's see what happens first...

                      How does the more likely to attack first within initiative work? Does it boost the speed by one speed category in a similar way that lightning tempest sera does with the flag "more likely to attack first" does? - i.e. the equivalent of a speed rune?

                        It's the same aura, yes.

                          I bought 11 GCP for 2860 gems and didn't get a single The Black Fox's Jerkin. Are you sure " it's the absolute best chance to get the gear" ?

                              Highest drop rate for the specific piece, yes. The drop rate will be significantly lower once it's in the general drop pool. Unfortunately, bad RNG can still happen, and there's no guarantee to get any specific piece.

                              Cheating
                              The use of any exploits or known bugs or editing of files in order to gain an unfair advantage while playing, will result in a permanent game and forum ban.

                              Accusing another player of cheating will result in your post/thread being deleted and a message sent to you, stating to refrain from further accusations. If continued accusations occur, a forum ban will result. If you believe a player to be cheating, send a PM to the Community Manager with as much detail as possible.

                              Please privately contact the Community Manager in order to submit an inquiry regarding this behavior.


                              Off-Topic Posting
                              Taking over a thread by posting excessively off-topic is not allowed. Off-Topic posts and any responses will be moved to their own, new thread if possible, or else deleted.


                              Political Posting

                              All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                              Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

                              Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.


                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation.
