View Full Version : Look at your kick/claw/strike skills

What was flying kick and kick caps? Was it 500?

After patch today (remember that mysterious 'returning skills' line from update notes thread?), mine read:
flying kick 500/500
kick 500/500
eagle: 270/275
tiger: 270/275

I surmise that our eagle and tiger claw cap got upgraded (bugger all dps increase), and FK and kick (more dps, but very little overall change) remain the same.

By comparison:
Rog backstab skill up from 245 to 300.

Seriously ...

Looking at a magelo profile which was updated this past weekend...

Their eagle and tiger skills were at 270 with kick and fk at 500.

Looks like the note is a test note which was not removed from the production notes.

I raised an issue in every beta except Underfoot and HoT which I did not participate in that our Flying Kick and Kick skills were much higher than the others (round kick, tail rake, eagle strike, tiger claw, dragon punch) which were stuck at 270. FK and Kick were at 500 in RoF beta at 100.

Sadly, the only replies to my thread are other classes telling me I need to post my inquiry elsewhere :P

I never once got a response as to why the skills stopped going up. My guess is they tried to upgrade them...finally?

I'd hate to have to skill up all those through wu's though. heh

Word is, the changes in the patch had to do with incorrectly set skills at certain levels.

I know that info was from me, but I thikn it was wrong now. My old backstab simulator code assumes it's 270+12% mod, and that was at least a year ago I last updated it. I suspect the patch somehow reset my max skill to 245. I'm sure it was higher before the patch.

I wish I could remember what I had before! Magelo seems to imply 290, but I'm not convinced given it's miscomputing mods.

This is related to a bug I petitioned about where Tail Rake (Dragon Punch) was only skilling up to 270/275. It is now skilling up properly since the patch.
