Just setup my Lithlad Fort with the typical setup I used in the other regions. Dominated by Berzerkers with the odd Slayer, Tank, BM and Assassins mixed in. When attacking it, using my regular assault force mix (50% B's and 50% other classes) one thing stands out: Berzerkers are no longer King of the Hill. They've been nerfed, big time. In the patch notes, they made mention of it:
- Reduced life steal on certain Berserker special attacks.
- Reduced damage of certain Orc special attacks against other Captains.
Now, based on my early experience, Berzerkers are normal to weak, which will have me rejigging every one of my other Forts to reflect this new 'balancing' aspect. It makes Fort Assaults even easier, with the Berzerkers no longer as much of a headache as in the past. Of course your Assault Force will also be so handicapped should it be heavy with Berzerkers, and the OFP will also require more careful approach.
