Just what I wanted! A ninja nerf to my already trash shield. Hopefully it's just a bug, and if it is, hopefully it gets resolved in the next patch, not in next year's patch.

Yah cause sending in a ticket does anything. Tamer has had bugs for months and no response after a first one like this. If they fix this ninja nerf then they should fix tamers shit while they are at it.

Wow! Thank you. Clearly you were 'polite' and clear in your communication to warrant such a...I don't know, 'hopeful' response. Regardless. This is at least known, logged and "being looked into". Again, thank you.

I went to the arena last night to have some fun after getting my TRI crescent :D  and wanted to test out the my new powers so i challenged this wiz. In his first hit my block dropped immediately so i back'd off and gain some distance while recharging it, i went back in and the same thing happened. My shield went from 100-0 in an instant  with only 2 hits from his RMB or LMB, i stopped and couldnt help but notice how unusual this was so i though " this guy most be packing some serious punch". I proceeded to ask what his lvl and Ap was (lvl60 220), i was left wondering  because it didn't feel the same but i didn't give it importance, was too tired and sleepy. This morning i went to RBF and i couldn't even stand at the front line and had to flee to the back line and stand there waiting for my chance to get a kill, after done and won i just came here just to find out i was not the only one.... i got very very irritated(still am). 

I've never been so angry to the point i wanted to smash my keyboard...I love valk, she is fancy, fun and amazing. It is not a faceroll class and it actually requires a lot of effort and knowledge to master most than most classes i dare to say....and now  she s just a pushover, not able to withstand the heat of battle(group fight) anymore, in other words tank and ohh boy...just how I love tank pvp gameplay. I really, deeply and sincerely don't wish to be dealing with this unprofessional and disheartening any longer. IDK how long this will take to be addressed and fix(hope until next patch and if possible b4) but i'am on the very edge....

Is the block weakened in PVP only or is it in PVE also?

At work so I cannot test for myself.

I dont play Valk actively myself but if I did I would be pretty pissed off if all of this is true. I feel for you guys :/  Cuckao really needs to mess things up everywhere lately it seems...

Its in PVP and PVE.

I tested it with Gatekeeper (Cadry), a Guildmate (Musa) and normal trashmonsters.

Gatekeeper hits the shild after approx 10-15 hits down, valk struggles (gets dmg) and shild is then on 0, you need then to atack or run around like crazy to regen the shild energy back to >0% so you can press Q again and block. If you do not regen up to 100% you can ofc block but then it is faster down (makes sense)

Same goes for PVP I made a duel against musa, after approx 3 sec shild is down and you get full dmg like you have no shild. 

before the patch the block regeneration scala appeared like 1 min getting hit by the gatekeeper and was very slow going down, the regen was faster in my opinion as well.

against normal trash monsters there is no big deal / Difference

akmans -> ouch²

Hysteria -> ouch³

Worldbosses -> ouch³

gatekeeper -> ouch³

pvp -> ouch²

at the end this is a tank nerf, no more turtle possible the only thing that valk made superior was her defence and it is now temporary af.

 RIP lvl 60 Valk :(

Oh you're right, I didn't even thought about those....,guess I was too angry or salty, or just feeling scammed once again... For world bosses, my first though is "r.i.p. crystals".

I still have to test how I behave, but probably we're gonna have problems there, and also with awakened T2 scrolls. I've been actively tanking Awakened Dim Tree and/or Awakened Muskan just to help guildmates with lower gearscores to have a chance at dropping their boss pieces, guess now I won't be of any help anymore, will leave that role to some button-mashing iframing dude.

I was wondering what happend to my shield when I tanked mudster yesterday. There is a significant difference now between using nouver and kutum. With my TET kutum it's still not even remotly close to what it was before the patch so it's a huge nerf overall. I honestly hope they just -----ed something up and will fix it soon.

I'm leaning towards it being more of a screw up than a nerf, hopefully I'm right .

Ranger here who duels my Valkyrie friend pretty much every other day for at least an hour-two hours. Today I was breaking his block with one fully-charged Tearing Arrow. Before this would never happen. He hasn't gained/lost any DP either.

If you look at the Ranger and Witch forums we have noted major power reductions post-patch.  It looks to me like the second skill that auto attacks when the first skill is triggered is not going off.  Not sure if your shield skill has a similar function?

Oh jeez this news is terrifying, I've loved Valk since the beta and levelled her as my main since then, I hope the devs aren't ruining the class like this, I really want it to remain viable ;s

Seems to me though that something so drastic, which hasnt been put into the patch notes and isn't on the KR version of the game, is simply a bug or mistake and not meant to be a legitimate change. 
I hope everyone stops giving Kakao so much shit and can be patient and wait for a response and/or fix.

Of course, if it turns out this is real, it will be extremely unfortunate (and dare I say, unbalanced). 

Be patient and calm, hold on to hope, my holy compatriots.

I was pretty much blunt and pretty potato in my support ticket and got that copypasta :U.

You can still tank em~ Just have to be a lot more aware of your cycling bloop. I hasss 283 dp and tanked a bunch of awakened tree man gumbi things and 2 karandas yesterday. (Karandas were interesting with the rubberbandman lag....) Tanking world bosses / awakened scroll bosses and what not has always been more of a personal challenge to me in how to maximize damage & hold aggro + take 0 damage by perfect blocking everything or running away. It's pretty much the exclusive PvE content that I enjoy in this game since it's one of the only times we can actually "tank" especially now bloop.

will give it a try then, was the only funny PvE content left for me, still I will keep stacking DP/DR, like the stubborn I am :)

Fcking...unbelievable. Do you have any idea the weeks of silver this patch just made insignificant? I hope this gets fixed sooner than 2 weeks. This "bug" better not be some sick ploy to have people believing that the defense increase that is coming in a month or so is of any value to the Valk class. If you didn't buff valk defensively, then why the hell would you be going through all this trouble for some extra passive def increase that isn't worth mentioning?

Put it back to normal please. Unaltered, no weird tricks or placebos, just Normal. 388 dp means nothing, more so now than ever.

The DP buff is barely out in KR (they're still testing it on pvp channels) and you think it's coming to us in a month?

Dream on :/
