You're not going to lower the cooldown that much...essentially you'll get a smash off about every 12 seconds or so, and have periods about every 3rd smash where you can smash twice in the same time frame...it was every 6-9 seconds more or less before depending no how efficient you built your stacks...
Smash got nerfed...not much...but still.
Te burst ye, but still, as people say the spec just got more adjusted for everything between. Makes it very viable for pve now.
But pvp wise, it won't be enough for the complainers. They will just keep going. ;D
Love the changes. Looking forward to 2.0
