Hey guys. I thought I would bring this to your attention. Everyone who plays a necromancer and uses a staff may have already noticed Putrid Mark's lack of working properly. Since the Aetherblade dungeon, it has not transferred ally conditions. It goes into a full cooldown if interrupted. And worst of all, now it only transfers THREE of the necro's conditions, instead of ALL.

 

For four months we've been reporting this on the forums... and now we have responses from the devs. I'd link the page, but the damn url link thing freezes on me every time I try. So if me typing the damn link out doesn't work... just look at the bug section of the guild wars 2 forums. You'll see it.

 

 

https://forum-en.gui...cer-Putrid-Mark

 

 

Basically... the devs stated that Putrid mark will stay as it is now. It will ONLY transfer 3 conditions from the necromancer, and NEVER transfer from allies. It, apparently, was too strong and they ninja nerfed it, but "forgot" to tell us. The cool down, supposedly, is a bug. But the original dev response made it sound like it wasn't.

 

I feel like they broke the mark, then couldn't figure out how to fix it... so they're keeping it as it is. Since we've been handicapped since June. So long necro support builds.

 

How can we make minion master a viable thing to play? OH! I KNOW! Nerf the staff! ... F.U. Anet. Morons. Scratching the bottom of the barrel for the answer when they nerfed one of the main, important MM support skills.

 

 

...so mad. So very, very mad. (Do you know how damn useful this would have been if it worked properly during that damn Aetherblade dungeon? Yeah...) I'd say enjoy the mark now as it lasts, but they already nerfed it... its terrible skills will stay. Hopefully Nov 26th, they'll have fixed the cooldown issues on all the marks. I'm not holding my breath.

D: Obama conspiracy! Didn't actually know this myself, I did notice that it didn't seem to remove conditions on allies though. Thanks for bringing this to my attention! Also would like to say that Minion master necro builds are shit, support are meh (don't reccomend them) because guardians, and eles water field heals should be good enough support. I recommend using either these 3 types of builds: 1)Bunker/tank 2)Conditionmancer 3)Offensive wells/Mass DPS

I currently use wells/condimancer builds. Dhuumfire ftw. :-D

 

But I do have a guildy - several, in fact - who like the minion master build. And I have a newbie necro that I was trying to get to be a necromancer... but now, I'm thinking, she's going to be bunker. Or, I don't know. Maybe full on condimancer, instead of a hybrid. Heh. We shall see. But... yeah... nerf, four months old, still sucks.

The ninja nerf.... /dislike

 

 

And I dislike even more Anet's reason for nerfing, which is the nerf happens because its one of the best skills in the game....

 

 

Hahahaha, Putrid Mark as one of the best skills in the game.

"It will no longer cleanse teammates and it will always give a full cooldown when interrupted because its one of the best skills in the game."

I'm pretty sure there's plenty of things that are better than putrid mark.  Stealth for example.  Stealthing necro OP.

Staff 2 is getting nerfed in December also, it's having a bleed removed, along with 1 of the bleeds off of signet of spite. Bad times for condi necros.

The one bleed being removed is for PvP, yes. Everything else is currently working the way they stated in PvE/WvW.

ANet never forgets to tell us about nerfs, they just don't do it until called out by a large part of the community. It is incredibly shady.
