    Patch Notes - 8.16.17

    An update just hit! Primarily includes the upcoming weekly content releases for Packs, Quest and PVP events (See weekly event schedule), but also includes the following:

    • Reanimated Leandra was not receiving Hawke family bonuses, and this has been corrected
    • Lord Erimond was holding his staff oddly. He is now holding it in the proper hand
    • Hakkonite Spellbinder and Gurd Harofsen were missing the "Multi Attacker" specialty, and this has been corrected

      Removing old gear from premium catalog is great. It was disappointing to get something like Ring of Resilence from GCP.

            a bit sad to learn that this may be the last roster increase.

            will you be giving us more consume boosts to help us manage our inventories?

              Inventory management is the responsibility of each player, and you may find the need to sacrifice unused heroes to make space.

                I always thought that Lord Erimond was left handed, hence his staff... It would make sense that at least one of those mages is... Never checked in th DA:I though.
                And thanks for the update, as always !

                  Solid patch today

                    A great patch indeed, however I'm quite sad to see that another limitation has been implemented on Hoda. With the first one being the game's code vs new browsers/ unity problem. Now with the inventory limit, does that means Hoda has reached it peak of development and the game it self is approaching its end in the (hopefully really far) future....?

                      Thank you for the update, especially the roster increase. However, I feel the changes to the Kirkwall Shield aren't enough to make it usable.

                      These days, with many toons regularly dealing over 1 million damage, resisting 850 damage makes no difference. The stun resistance isn't really much help either in the age of LSC.
                      Sorry to sound ungrateful, but is there any chance the devs could look at this again?

                          Or you could let us use rare,epic heroes as leg,mythic banks with no fee of removal to easily fix inventory issue.

                              I'm inclined to agree. Even if the enemy hits for just 50k, this amounts to less than 2% DR - you may as well use one of the many common / uncommon items that gives 2% DR and not only that they (the common / uncommon items) also apply to all allies with the added bonus that they scale with the damage done since it''s a percentage.

                              I thought after the recent DR change you indicated that items like Chestplate of the fortress would be more the design philosophy (50% DR vs flankers). And here we are we have a revamped pile of utter junk sadly (rating this item 2 out of 10), I can't see anyone wasting a slot for this.

                              Finally what part of these stats "better reflect its status as Mythic"?

                              Have you changed your mind about that design philosophy already?

                              I apologise in hindsight for the passive aggressive tone of this post - just this is a topic i'm passionate about since I was in favour of the DR change with the promised improvements to come with DR gear to make that approach viable in this age of massive dps output being king.

                              Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games and a report to Facebook.

                              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 Sr 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.
                              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.

                              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.

                              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.

                              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. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
