    • The level 25 effect of the bane of the Trapped gem is a control impairing effect, which in turn gives you the damage bonus from it.  Effectively, once you get it to level 25 it becomes self-sufficient in giving you a damage bonus to anyone within the range of it's effect.
    • I'm just implying that they are so overpowered that it's confusing why they were added onto the PTR in such a broken state. I mean, they are so OP compared to other racials to the point where I wonder what was going through the balance team's minds during implementation. Yes, it's good this is on the PTR and not live, but the fact that it was released as powerful as it was is concerning; makes me wonder if they'll make the same mistake on live in the near future...
    • To little to late, 1 map and 2 heros per year is a joke

      I am curious as to why Bane of the Trapped is preferred over any other gem, such as Mutilation Guard, Simplicity's Strength or Mirinae, Teardrop of the Starweaver? Its primary  use, until lvl 25, is to increase damage against enemies under a control impairing effect and not one single piece of armour, weapon, stat priority, shield, kanai ability, gem, passive or active skill, damage type or rune listed here has any such effect attached to it. Surely, there is a better, more frequently useful legendary gem that can be socketed here, or am I missing the obvious...?

    • Here we go with another round of speculation on an upcoming new Hero reveal! Today we got our first hint at Hero 30, who's expected to show up some time next month. It seems his name is Baptiste and he left Talon, who weren't all that happy about it and decided to track and take him down.
      We also got a handy little description of the potential Hero and his role below: So, an Ana-like support with some sort of rng/luck-based mechanic, who also dabbles in DPS? Or could this be another mislead, with the actual new Hero being someone else related to this report? Here's the full teaser so you can judge yourselves. Hero 30? (source)   Here’s the translation: TO: F. MCMANAWAY FROM: T. NGUYEN DATE: FEBRUARY 21, ____ SUBJECT: CUERVA STRIKE TEAM - LOG RECOVERED Commander, New information has surfaced about Captain Cuerva’s missing strike team. My agents have recovered Cuerva’s personal log. The last entry is dated 27 August, at 0430 hours, from Ti Ôtel Lanbi in Port-de-Paix. Transcript below.   SENIOR ANALYST TRUNG LE NGUYEN 27 August, 0430 hours Ti Ôtel Lanbi, Port-de-Paix, Haiti We landed at 2000 hours on 26 August. Tortuga lies across the canal, a dark, rocky shape against the sky. My team bunked down in the hotel, and we planned to cross to the island in the morning. Our orders: to retrieve Jean-Baptiste Augustin, or, failing that, to eliminate him. I still hold out hope to talking sense into him. No one leaves Talon. The organization needs him, now more than ever. All it will take, I’m sure, is the right kind of pressure to make him regret his decision. At 0200 hours, Pacanowsky left the hotel to purchase supplies and failed to return. Mazzei and Doubleday were dispatched to locate him, and an hour later, there was a knock at my door. The hotel staff delivered a box with my name on it. Inside was a folded letter and Pacanowsky, Mazzei, and Doubleday’s emblems, which looked like they had been torn from their jackets. Come find me, Cuerva. I know better than to underestimate Baptiste. I helped train him myself, and he was one of our best. I’ve never known a medic to be such a good shot, and his adaptability to new situations is a rare talent. All of us have seen our fair share of conflict, but Baptiste was built to survive. I swear he has the Devil’s own luck. I am preparing the rest of the team to move out. Baptiste could be gone by dawn. I don’t know if Pacanowsky, Mazzei, and Doubleday are still alive. All three of them were part of Baptiste's unit before his desertion, and given their personal inclinations, the odds aren’t in their favor. If all goes well, everything will be settled and we’ll be on our way home by tonight. Hopefully Baptiste will be among us, playing cards and drinking rum, instead of lying in a shallow island grave. But either way, I will not fail. It will be done. D. Cuerva
