Default When are they Implementing the Charm Nerf?

They mentioned a nerf to Enchanter charm awhile back. Something about changing the effect of charisma on charm duration. When are they going to patch that in?

No dev ever said they were changing this, just a bunch of anti-enchanter folks were on a bandwagon of nerfquest.

Argument was that what we have now is not classic, yet all "evidence" was gathered from the EQlive client. <-- lotta good data here over on the TAKP forum.

To correct the above, Haynar does say he was asked to change it on p99.

Maybe it'll happen around the same time they fix Immolate for Druids and pet aggro for Magicians [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

From what I understand, if implemented the charm would work how it does on TAKP. On that server Enchanters don't charm because it essentially is too dangerous and unreliable. Enchanters won't need Charisma anymore, but also won't be getting the saving throws from extra charisma either. To my knowledge, Enchanters are used as buff bots on TAKP. They are too unreliable to hold charm for any duration.

That does sound a lot more classic, but a little sad as the things people do woth charm here are truly impressive (and charm pets are a huge boost to any group!)

When I last played TAKP, Enchanter pets were one of the most OP things on the server. I saw many trios with a max hasted fully decked out sebilite golem shredding camps in Seb.
