You start out your patch notes with this:
You're kidding, right? I thought you don't want us inside each other's capitals. To begin with, you litter the two cities with omnipotent guards who simply cannot be fought. Trust me, I've tried; I've brought several raids to the doorstep of Sanctum only to have them wiped in seconds by one or two guards. They cut through every player like butter, and have like 3 million HP.* Those who managed to sneak behind enemy lines and complete the introductory artifact collections inside Meridian or Sanctum now have a special reward coming their way!
Well, that's okay, I'm a rogue, and I have a role with Assassin's improved stealth. I used to be able to atleast sneak around Sanctum and find little pockets where guards wouldn't see me if I unstealthed.
But you recently changed this; now the omnipotent guards also see through stealth, even if it's improved and I have Eluisveness up.
A guild mate and I tried getting into Sanctum. We had to suicide four times and ghost walk into the place. (When a Defiant dies in Sanctum, they res in MOONSHADE, so it's a hell of a walk too.) Even when we find a safe place to stay stealthed, it doesn't last, because you can't walk around without getting stealth killed, or a patrol will find you.
How can you possibly expect a Defiant to be able to achieve this new 'special reward'?
Also, are the developers aware that while the Defiant can't do ANYTHING inside of Sanctum if they're able to get in there, it's really easy for Guardians to get inside Meridian, and that they can gank people around the porticulum? The guards don't go after them; alert Defiant players have to take care of them. I was fighting the same two Guardian gankers in Meridian for like 15 minutes to try to keep the city safe.
I really hope to hear from a dev to see if they're aware of this, and if they're going to do something about it. I won't speak for PvE server players, but I bet PvP servers would love to be able to legitimately raid the capital cities. Would make for some fun World PvP!
