So... will 1.7 will save us from despair? Will it be 1.8? 1.9? 2.0? Over 9000?
You can talk to us Bioware, we don't bite (but we may unsuscribe, but you're used to that now).
My bet is we won't get anything meaningful until the expansion. More than likely they will do something with bubblestun and the smashmonkies in 1.7 but mercs/mandos will simply be told to LoS the pillars more.
