In recent weeks the news around the preview server have cooled off since there were no major patches to report. The latest Lost City of Omu update “NW.95.20180207A.1” however brings a lot of interesting changes to different areas of the game. First and foremost, the Hunt Trophy and Lure item functionality has been changed. The items are no longer unique and players will be able to hold more than one in their inventory. They still don’t stack and can no longer be mailed, but this nonetheless should make farming much more comfortable.
- Hunt trophies and lures have been adjusted in the following ways:
- These items are no longer unique, as such more than one can be held in your inventory at a time.
- These items may no longer be mailed.
- Please note:
- Hunt trophies and lures do not stack, as such in order to hold on to two of the same lure, you must have two free inventory spaces.
- Any trophies or lures currently in mailboxes will remain there, however, once they are removed from the mailbox they may not be sent again.
Storm Spell Nerfed
Control Wizards in the meantime have to live with a hefty nerf to one of their main DPS powers. In an attempt to probably move the SS and MoF Paragons closer together, Storm Spell’s damage was reduced by 30% while Rimefire’s and Smolder’s is increased by 50%. That said, Storm Spell had already received a sizeable buff as it will be able to crit in Module 13. So CWs will presumably still deal slightly more damage overall.
The last change we want to single out here is that new Masterwork Rings now hold an item level of 510, and that Stronghold Weapons III match the set bonus of their precursors. This means that Masterworks will remain the best weapon set to own for support type characters. Players had been critical that the set bonus was originally reworked to benefit DPS builds and apparently got heard.
There are a lot more changes in the latest build. So make sure to read through the full patch notes!
