  • Segments
    • Resource requirements have increase (2x), number of segments required per piece of armor has decreased.

Will look into it, it was a problem on test too at the beginning, so not sure why it's working there and not on live.

Edit: Seems to be fixed now, was on my admin character please. Let me know if it is or isn't please.

Hey Tyclo, have a question on some of the armor changes.

So, composite armor is great but has the stun vulnerability which makes it tough to PVP in. Someone was asking me to try making some comp with stun added in. Just to test, I made a segment that had 16% Kin/En special resists, 39% base, and 12% stun SR. On final build, when i do experimentation, everything is being increased by the experimenting, except the stun resist. It stayed at the initial 12% even though it's correctly showing in SR category.

Is that intended and correct?

I would think that once you add that layer, and move it off of vuln and into a resist, it should be impacted by the experimentation, plus the base 39% should get added to it as well. Should have been at 51% prior to experimenting then increased with the exp points.

Can you comment?

.. i need to test out ..
was Live AS and nearly all Amor on Nova at begin was made by me :P
that Revamp , all i understand .. it takes the authority from Composite being good in all situation and the huge Variants that you could make ..and put it down to a Grind/PvE Amor ..
There is no PvP Amor anymore ...and i wonder why no PvP happens here :/
You will allway be "more or less" vuln to something ..
.. Amor Revamp sounds nice ..and it reads pretty nice .. but when you realize what happend to Composite you just can Cry Hard as a AS .

@Tyclo

All i understand to this Point .
You can not xp Vuln .. on my other Server and also here ..
the difference between this is ..
You have more Segmente to add .. so you put in Segment 1 3 stun layer ..that get you 34-39 stun depend on the res you have ..and the other 2 Segment you need to keep the Special up Kin and Energy .
So that means 2 Segment are needed to Keep the Special up until 3rd is optinal Stuff .

What i understand from Test Server on SR Emu .. that system is same .. you cant exp the Vuln ..so you will get Stun 11-13% what i have tested for the moment while you need the other 2 Layer to keep 2 Special out of 3 up .. that 1 Special falls apart ..cant be exp and stay on base 63 crafted -71 with enhancements


For the moment i just see 2 options :
1) You give the Vuln , while pulled into Special the ability to also get exp .. but that will result in -> Vuln will be 85% and 1 Special will be arround Base and will be arround 63-71%
2) Keep the no exp for Vuln but Add 2 Segment to the Heavy Amor . So there is 1 Segment to Keep the Special up and a second one to get the Vuln up to 40% .

Point 1 will be a bit strange .. and no option i think
Point 2 will need a bit Testing ,but could be a Option to Keep the Vuln low (arround 40%) while others stay Old way ..but.. dont know how Base will be infected by this :P

The Armor revamp was done by a developer who is no longer with Sentinels Republic. It has... Problems. I won't go into extreme detail, but it's not balanced properly and basic premise was incomplete from the get go.

Roccah is correct, the reason Stun doesn't increase when you experiment is because it's a Special Protection in your screenshot or a Vulnerability when without a stun segment.

My knowledge of AS is fairly basic and I'm working with other team members to come up with a solution. Something like Roccah's #2 suggestion is probably the direction that I'd like to head in. Perhaps with some looted segments to achieve this, as currently looted segments are worthless.

Sounds good. I think that point 2 works to achieve a good balance. Thanks for looking into this
