What does not belong in any other section does probably belong here.

Preview patched just now

Length of time it took wasn't very promising though.

I doubt I'll have time to get to it until this weekend, but there are a couple notes that sound interesting.
patch notes wrote:Enemies no longer leash when their target is killed by Permafrost.
Hopefully this means that Svordblorglord won't bug out as much... I realize there was a workaround, but coordinating one-at-a-time change character cycling was kind of hit-or-miss. I know a couple zerg groups I was in fell apart because of this when players just gave up rather than deal with the workaround.
patch notes wrote:Frost Enchantment: This enchantment no longer provides more damage than expected when other buffs are active.
Lol. They fixed what they broke after they fixed what was broken. How many patches until this gem regresses?
patch notes wrote:Elixir of Life no longer incorrectly allows players to revive themselves.
LOL. Surprised they got around to this, I swear this must've been reported years ago. How many patches until this one regresses?
patch notes wrote:Oathbound Paladin
Absolution no longer resists Everfrost Damage.
OP needed more nerfage

Untargetable enemies can no longer be hit by certain powers
Does this mean that asshole troll in the FBI tunnels can no longer be killed?

I do wonder about the implications that has for unintentionally invisible and in-terrain mobs, in addition to whatever exploit they were addressing.

The launcher was also updated to add the new DirectX warnings. Spoofing Vista in Wine bypasses the "Don't use Windows XP" warning, but there's still a "Use a more recent DirectX" warning in my setup. I'm not going to tinker with it much for now.

Any OPs ran CN today? I did and was getting curb stomped with 71% DR and the OP shield up. He was eating my Binding in a single shot along with my templars immediately after, sometimes both at once. I've had a few where the instance bugged and he got extra powerful but I'm not sure if this was that or if they ninja buffed him.

Thread was mostly to observe that we'd be getting some fixes this week rather than a reset again, for good or ill.

Much like a shopping list after you've bought the groceries, it was only meaningful in the interval between the patch and there being notes published for it. To be crumpled up and thrown away, except it's the internet where we don't get to do that.

I was on the STO forums, Simon (doctordna) said you cannot run DX 10 or 11 under WINE. You need a WINE upgrade that doesn't exist yet. I am running XP Pro and I get both messages, but I also have Windows 10. I plan to play on XP until March to make the switch but something tells me it won't be smooth as they think or say it will be.

Simon already left NW in September and was playing on STO, but I think he has dropped STO as well.

Yep. Wine for DX 11 is coming soon though.... Or was supposed to be. Not sure if it will be soon enough though.

Well I tried it once this week before the last launcher update as (at least) some DX 11 features are already available in WINE - looked like a pink arcade game. My tests with only DX 10 or 11 installed had all 3D models missing and crashed on map loading :x

Edit: But I will never give up my hopes ;)

Waiting for some notes here. This patch is running pretty slowly. Possibly actually a big sucker.

Terramak hinted earlier in the week that 11b would hit preview very soon. Looks like I'm running that patch right now.
