Monk speed + Athasian elf racial ability(longstrider)
« on: May 09, 2023, 05:27:05 PM »
Apparently at higher monk levels the racial ability of my Monk no longer give me 10% movement speed bonus when used, atleast i notice no difference when using it. Currently lvl 15.

While I couldn't say I know if this is what's affecting it or not, there is a cap on maximum movement speed that may be the cause here.
Currently:
Sabina Timenelov - Barovian road warden

Also:
Emmanuelle de le Foret - Ezrite escapee from Hazlan
Livu Olmstead - First Watcher of Helm

using other movement speed items such as haste will still give movement speed.

Monk speed changes
« Reply #3 on: June 24, 2023, 06:58:15 PM »
I heard recently that changes were made to the way monk speed works, but this doesn't follow the description of what I was told.

Changelogs make no mention of this significant change, only this in the hak update thread: -Capped monk total speed (should not have a noticeable effect since effect stacking was capped).

Monks now have a speed cap of 150% (like normal characters), presumably until level 18 when they would have a natural speed of 160%. Or they are not receiving movement speed bonuses at all.

On a fresh login after server restart I used haste and wasn't going monk speed + haste anymore. If I was going any faster, it was only the difference between my monk's natural speed and the typical haste speed. Every time I haste myself or have haste cast on me, it works the same way.

The hak update thread says "no noticeable effect" but having my combat movement speed nerfed from 160-210% all the way down to 150% is pretty noticeable. Certain strategies unique to monk are now entirely eliminated.

Was this unintentional (bug) or was it done to clean the slate for other changes to be made to the class?

It's a known issue, which should be corrected with the next hak update.

I believe this is being corrected in the next HAK update.

See here for the quick exchange about it.

I see, so I do remember that thread and it seemed like a minor issue was meant to be corrected, the stacking of longstrider with haste. Presumably, some people thought you could keep longstrider after haste expired, even if they did really stack. The difference between 210% and 225% is minor as it is but sacrificing longstrider whenever haste is lost is major. Without the exact value mentioned, I wonder if they will be able to cap out at 210% at level 18 again.

After the patch on June 28th; Haste, longstrider and Expeditious Retreat stopped working for high level monks.

We could use some more testing on the test server for this.

I'm not getting an increase with longstrider active.

Cowardice and Haste has an increase.
