  • Patch Notes - 2.16.18

    * Dalish Banner was missing the HEAL specialty. We have added this.
    * We determined that the drop rates for the new gear were incorrect (too low) and have raised them in the Champion and Grand Champion Packs. Please note that no compensation or refunds will be provided in this as there would have been no guarantee of ever receiving these specific items regardless of their rates. However, you should now see them dropping more frequently than before.
    * Some future stuff in preparation for upcoming client release

        There's no guarantee you would have received the gear anyway. You could still spend another 1300 gems and not receive it - that's entirely possible, based on the way chance works.

          Bought another 20 cp, no new gear. You are sure it is there?

            I understand that its could be, but i was thinking reducing was intentionally, not by mistake, and then who just late with buying will have advance instead of other? And my guildmates who spend 2k and all other who spend over 1k no one received gear.

              I’ve spend 1000 gems before and 600 gems after the update. No new gear. I will not spent anymore. I am sure the gear is not there.

                The new gear is definitely available in the Champion Packs, and does seem to drop at a fair rate. I've just opened approx 15 packs and got three of the Dirthamen's Wisdom.

                  Will be much fair if u left it like it was then fix it after a lot of people spend so much. Its not some useless gear, 10% DR for GoM its huge. Great disappoint.

                    Please keep in mind that "chance" does not mean "guarantee". There is never a guarantee on receiving new gear, only a chance. That means there is also a chance you won't ever receive the gear.

                    20 packs is definitely too small a sample size to decide "the gear isn't there." It's there.

                    Considering: First you have to roll the rarity. Then you have to roll THAT gear. There's 18 pieces of rare gear in the catalog right now. Rolling a rare can grant you any of them - and that's assuming you first actually roll a rare. This is not a new concept.

                      Lyeshal, I bought two new release packs and got 2 Dirthamens wisdom. One with each pack. Shouldnt i have got a Sentinel plate pauldron with my second pack instead of a dupe dirthamen?

                        if I'm not mistaken the same way there is no guarantee to get a gear in (g)cp there is no "no-dupe mechanic for gear in the new release pack (undofrtunately)

                          Thanks Tayna. But the reason i went for new release pack instead of gcp is that I thought new release pack guarantees the gear.
                          And logically it says no dupes unless acquired elsewhere. i would love Lyeshal to shed some light on this.
                          Maybe because they usually have only one gear per release this was an oversight that cg didn’t anticipate?

                            well the description in the newsfeed says "heroes cannot be duplicated" as well as "one of the new gear". I'm guessing it's thought as clear. Maybe a disclaimer that no dupe rules don't apply to gear here as well?

                              The description is vague and confusing as it stands. I’m sure I am not the only one to assume if there are two new pieces of gear being released this week and the no dupe rule applies to new heroes; the same rule would apply to the gear too (unless specifically stated that it doesn’t apply to the gear).

                              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:
