    Wow! Impressive.... RL Samson and Meredith could be tasty...
    Never play leapfrog with a unicorn.

      Could you confirm if any of the recent gears have been added to banished planes or raids please?

        The gears released in the past 2 weeks have been added to the "all gear" quest table.

          Can I ask whether we'll see a minor revamp to Grey Warden Genevieve in relation to the group resists (re: RL Samson and Samson)?

          As an aside I think resistance immunities for group was always a suspect thing (although self immunities is fine) - so I think the change highlighted above and what was previously done to Josephine is great change.

          Also, will Red Lyrium Blackwall / Red Lyrium Iron Bull get a revamp in the future, or are they in line with current balance guidelines - just so I can plan on either keeping or turning that hero into fort food?

              Awesome update, RL Meredith and Samson looks great now, I agree.

                Very good update, I love to see units, which attack allies or themselves to activate abilities. Devs, you did your best

                  so we can find all the latest gears also in the portal key?

                    Unknown at this time.

                    Also, will Red Lyrium Blackwall / Red Lyrium Iron Bull get a revamp in the future, or are they in line with current balance guidelines - just so I can plan on either keeping or turning that hero into fort food?
                    They were pretty close to current guidelines, so they didn't get any changes. This also means they're unlikely to see any change in the near future.

                      Yes. Any quest that allows for "all gear" uses the exact same gear table.

                      Raids are limited in the rarities offered, so the Ludicrous modes that are available in the portal are only Epic+ gear. If the recently released gear is Epic+, then they're there.

                      This is a standard thing for each content release, so we don't specifically mention it in the patch notes each time.

                        Another follow up - was it intended for Red Templar Shadow to lose stealth, or was that an accidental change?

                          Not sure what happened, but the ladder in the current event got mucked up. We are fixing this right now and will be pushing out an update very shortly.

                            Guys, I got fire in my community: someone got Orange Keys from the ladder, someone not. Someone didn't get 5 banners for the keys

                              Intended. The stealth was originally there for the assassination. Since assassination now always acts as stealth, it was no longer required.

                              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
                              Because political beliefs, like religion, are a personal and sensitive topic, avoid posting about politics on the forums.

                              Customer Support Inquiries
                              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.

                              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:
