Difference between TI and SB: TA have influence on gameplay, they change abilities or playstyle. SB are in the background and support the spec in general without big influence on abilities or playstyle.

PvE oriented!

Set Boni:

2 - (Energy Management) Toxic Blast no longer costs energy ( > Without a fair amount of double DoT Ticks, Lethality's Energy management sucks. There's no way you dont run out of energy and everybody hates Rifle Shots. Without the cost of 10 energy on Toxic Blast the rotation becomes much smoother while still in need of using energy probe - not like 4.0 )

4 - (Utility) Holotraverse is now off global Cooldown ( > I know I know... you said it's because of the "fly and die" bug. But i bet everybody wants it back as an off GCD ability. Holotraverse is important for Operative's Movement, especially Lethality's without Immunities and other Movement Speed Abilities Concealment has or the range of a Healing Spec. At the moment you have to wait until your GCD is gone before u can move, feels *********** clunky and thats the job of exfiltrate.)

6 - (Damage and Defense) Dealing Damage with Corrosive Assault while under the effect of Augmented Toxins reduces the cooldown of Cloaking Screen by 3 seconds. ( > Cloaking Screen is important for Lethality's rotation. Not only because of the damage buff and the Tactical Advantage Lethal Strike generates when in stealth, but also as a defensive tool - no more aggro from boss/adds, cleanse with utility point, movement speed with utility point)

There have to be two things on Lethality's Set Boni in my opinion: 1. Energy Regeneration/Management (because it's too random with the need of a fair amount of double DoT ticks and it feels clunky at the moment) 2. Defense/Utility (because Lethality is in desperate need of some Defensive or Utility Tools - compare it to other classes e.g. mercenary: 30m range, heavy armor, dmg reduction CD, Reflec and Heal CD, Heal CD, Tech Absorb CD, Rocket out, Hydraulics,... Operative: Shield Probe ~15k absorb + 6 sec of dmg reduction after this - long CD, Evasion only useful against M/R Damage, Exfiltrate/Holotraverse both on GCD)

Tactical Items:

(Single Target Damage) While under the effect of Augmented Toxins Corrosive Assault adds 1s to the runtime of active Corrosive Dart/Grenade on the target

(Single Target Damage) Allows Toxic Haze to consume Fatality. When consuming Fatality Toxic Haze appears as a DoT on the target instead of a circle on the ground. (effect: Corrosive Assault causes Toxic Haze to tick and deal damage, max 3x/Haze runtime is still 6s. Toxic Haze will deal way more damage than an corrosive assault, that's why you will use it single target. If it becomes too overpowered add: "[... to consume Fatality, but puts Toxic Haze on a 30s Cooldown. [...]")

(Multi Target Damage) Toxic Haze now also spreads Toxic Blast to the targets it damages, as long as it damages at least one target already affected by your Toxic Blast.

(Multi Target Damage) Hitting more than 2 targets with Noxious Knives causes a poisonious explosion dealing damage around the operative (10m radius, same as Noxious Knives but 360), while under the effect of Augmented Toxins also reduces the Cooldown of Toxic Haze by 1s.

(Utility) Stim Boost resets the Cooldown of Holotraverse.

(Utility) The range of Overload shot is increased by 10m and it's energy cost is reduced by 5. (Sometimes an impactful damage ability with some range and without Cooldown would be great tho.)

also possible as utlity point!: (Defense) Activating Countermeasures now also increases damage reduction by 25% for 6s.

also possible as utlity point!: (Defense) Shield Probe renews itself and runtime when destroyed, this can happen three times per activation.

(Defense) Flash Bang is now off GCD and no longer needs a target, instead the operative bangs all targets around him (no effect on them, but allowing him to resist the next force/tech ability within 8s.

When something is unclear or you don't understand how this could help/influence gameplay/playstyle or anything else - please ASK ME!
