I wanted to draw attention to the decided resolution in report 108 to the issue of cement socks, specifically:
Resolution: We will increase the current resistance debuff to a larger reduction on each failed attempt, as well
as implement a system where celerity and rooting will affect each other. The more rooting you have,
the more your celerity will be reduced and vice versa
I kind of feel this is highly not what we want and it actually has very little to do with the actual report and the solution and I think it should possibly be drawn attention to. I'd ask for this to be reconsidered because:
1. there's a lot of artifacts, curios, beast powers, etc that mostly deal with celerity and a good deal of people have invested into having a high celerity (sandals of haste for example only buff celerity and price 400cr) or a high rooting or both. Having those two stats suddenly interlock with each other will severely nerf those investments.
2. The issue described has to do with the power of a singular artifact, not with rooting and celerity itself. I feel the first part of the solution addresses this and I have nothing against this.
I simply felt, after reading this, that tying rooting and celerity together will be really painful for a lot of people and I for one would consider wanting a refund on a few of my items that specifically deal with celerity. I really can't picture swapping whole stacks of abilities and artifacts to get from celerity to rooting and vice versa.
