i mean, it still let you lose a hex, but using derv enchants is/was the goal of derv overhaul, wasnt it? at least a big part of it

whats wrong with leech signet? heroes use it on any action anyway

man, kinda stupid changes

and why did they change kisu? that was a symbol of the event the way it was....

i didnt mention those changes, i just were talking about these few changes

the hat part is awesome, and seems that anet ignores the elitism like "you werent there, so you dont deserve it"
i call this elitism, so plz dont discuss on that again (to anyone who would, as i call this elitism personally)

i just was looking at my derv, so didnt continue posting

Sucky update, thanks for all the nerfs. By the way, noblewoman Sun Li does not exist in Shing Jea Monastery despite their wording of "now appears".

What are the chances that Imperial Mask Tokens let you get other hats, really?

Please fix the following attribute lines from their current state: Motivation, Leadership, Blood Magic, Deadly Arts, Smiting Prayers and Marksmanship.

It's been YEARS since these were effective. YEARS. Let me re-emphasize that: YEARS.

Festival hats were suppose to be a reward for early adopters who stayed with the game. I get that other changes were to make the game easier and more accessible, such as the updates to HoM, but this pretty much takes last vestige veteran players had to show their dedication to the game.

The PvP update is great balancing as always!

No. Many veteran players deleted their hats because pre factions everyone only had one storage pane, 4 character slots and the hat took up an armor slot. This shows Anet is willing to omit their mistakes to players.

I can't tell by the wording if the tokens can be exchanged for ALL previous festival hats, or just dragon festival. Either way, that's a nice little addition and I'm looking forward to Sun Li's new quest

Then they shouldn't use the word "now". The NPC is suppose to be part of the Dragon Festival so it should be included in the same point as the first point.

You are not the only one that was confused by ANet's wording.
