From the Forum post:

Thanks to everyone for participating in our Cyrodiil tests the past few weeks. We know it’s been challenging to battle with ability functionality changing so often, but being able to gather live data has been invaluable.


As we approach the end of our scheduled tests, we’ve determined that we’d like to run at least two more tests to gather additional data, which are outlined below. Our goal here is to see how a combination of changes from previous tests affect the performance, as we’ve found they have not had a significant impact individually.

October 19 - 26

  • Shared global AoE cooldown with a 3 second timer.
  • Group size limited to 12 in Cyrodiil
  • Ally-targeted abilities only applied to group members

October 26 - November 2

  • Shared global AoE cooldown with a 3 second timer.
  • Group size limited to 12 in Cyrodiil
  • Ally-targeted abilities only applied to group members
  • Global ramping cost per successive AoE cast by 50%/100%/150%
  • Regen decrease per successive AoE cast by 33%/66%/99%

Our current plan is to disable all tests and double AP once Update 28 launches for PC on November 2.

At that time, we’ll need to take some time to analyze the data collected from all the tests and determine next steps. Once we have a better idea of what that entails, we’ll let everyone know.
