But you're saying we may as well include it because there's no explicit patch note, which I disagree with because it was clearly removed at some point and it logically points to 1.65
And I don't disagree with your reasoning at all. I think you are probably 100% correct.
The reason I think it should still be in though is that it doesn't say it was taken out before 1.65 so we don't know, we are truly guessing, even if we consider it an educated guess.
There is another thread talking about the stun component of the Ice Storm attack and who should have access to it and it kind of falls into this same argument.
If something is not specifically listed in or before the 1.65 patch, is it truly fair to make an "educated guess" to remove something or add it? I think the argument can be made for both cases, but the simple answer for me is no since the dev's have said 1.65 replication plus a few "minor" QoL changes is what they plan on here.
Either way, we'll see how it goes =)
