Erm... Ocho-Quatro, I'd just like to point out that the person you are quoting posted in March. As in, BEFORE 2.0 actually came out. So, they kind of didn't get to see the full view of how things changed. They didn't know that the operations were going to be balanced around large single hit spikes, which is the main problem with the shadow's RNG failings.
Curse you thread rez!!!!!!
