    Default I don't understand the wording of the following change in 1.2

    - Caelia the Stormtouched will be modified to be more understandable
    What does it mean "more understandable"? She was bugged to hell with her animation and that was it. There's nothing confusing to me at least about that. Fix the animation and you fix the fight. Is this a sneaky way for Trion not to acknowledge part of their game is broken?

    Think you answered your own question.

    I think the OP's point was that she her actions weren't just "vague and misleading", they were downright bugged. Should be "Caelia the Stormtouched's Wild Lightning animations have been fixed", or something similar. Saying "more understandable" sort of puts the blame on players.

    Thank you! I'm just keeping Trion honest. At times I feel like they treat us like idiots. For example, see the 1.2 patch thread in the rogue forums.

    A dev said that there was a "bug" in the actual typed patch notes because cadence should not have been nerfed. How is something a human put thought and effort into typing out considered a bug?

    Stop using euphemisms and own up to problems in your game. You will get much more credibility with the player base.

    Semantics.

    They constantly phrase things in a different and/or humorous way. I don't see that as passing the blame.
    My dungeon experiences and builds as a 2h Cleric tank are posted on my blog. All T1 and most T2 expert dungeons complete.

    I've also posted the coordinates for all exploration achievements on my website (redesign in the works): http://tehkrizz.net/RIFT/exploration.php

    You realize that she always turned clockwise right? So even if it looked like she was doing some crazy **** you could know which way she was actually facing.

    I don't understand why you are making this thread. If you know the fight is easily done even if it is bugged why do you care about some quaint wording?

    Do you just want them to make it more understandable?

    because instead of saying the fight is bug, trion is saying we're just having a hard time understanding it

    do you like getting talked down to?

    I love the way Trion posts patch notes and other tidbits.
    Makes me laugh when I see it.

    You must be reading too far into it.

    In this particular case I wanted to leave the description a bit vague. At the time I wrote the "upcoming" changes we had implemented the fix yet (there were a few options on the table at the time).

    The final outcome is that we ended up changing the form of that mechanic to something that should be completely understandable from a visual standpoint while keeping the the basic original intention intact.

    I think you mean "hadn't."

    Wording is fine by me. Having her point the way she's chucking lightning makes it more understandable that she is in fact chucking lightning in that direction.

    Yeah I don't see what the problem with the wording is myself. They're making it more understandable to see where she's about to fire her laser.
