Is this the year of Zerkers and Monks? Their DPS seems set to rise.
If your selling Memoryforged chase loot weapons, you might want to wait until they improve.
If your buying Memoryforged, you might want to hurry up and get a good price, before the prices go up.

This seems to be following the pattern with the Anniversary augs, where it doesnt apply to the stat-only ones, and is just changing the lore group on the proc/effect augments from lore to lore equipped.

I feel like they are really lacking a game designer to manage the scalability of game.

They really need to add double crit for zerkers and such - so that if your crit rate is 112%, you have a 12% chance of doubling your crit modifiers damage.

I agree. Right now you have to destroy your ToV augs or put them in your Dragon's Horde in order to even make the LS augs of that type (casting, assaulting, etc). This change is likely just fixing that issue.

Should we be seeing an upgrade to NOS T2 weapons? If not this patch then in the near future?
Wouldn’t hold your breath, has then it would be the same for expansion before, and so on. Plus it’s not something that is needed, in NoS events ain’t tuned for the increased damage from weapons so wouldn’t really make sense.

The pet inventory thing...omg after 23 years finally.

Let that lich summon, I have the DPS but good god running all over was annoying and caused a lot of issues with initial aggro on shalowain due to often random positioning of people after lich died right after porting.

Looking forward to them possibly eventually updating the chase weapons...I have the PAL/SHD 2 hander but am using the TS weapon instead.

Personally I liked the suggestion of a tab in the inventory window like the Merc tab - or...

Have it where a pet owner has the ability to right click inspect the pet just like a PC but allow the owner to manipulate the inventory shown.

unfortunately per brainiac /pet is just the pet reporting back what it says from the server - there's no pet inventory data that is available
That makes sense, though I can see a renewed set of guides now to refresh memories as to what pets can/can't use... what's best for which, etc...

Goodness knows I can never remember those details

Hopefully this is iteration 1 on our way to having an actual pet inventory like the merc tab 🤞

Yow. Maybe my eyes old or monitor bad or..... the contrast/Gamma is a teensy bit painful for me right now. I need some brightness! This is going to be "a thing".
