But now? Focus here I come...

To anyone happy about this nerf, know that the number of lolsmashers in WZs is only going to go up.
There's still the middle tree.

Exactly. Woot! 40k healing! Cause that will be super useful. Now the only thing I will miss from Watchman/Anni is the 0m Force Leap. But hey, now I will have 2 leaps that maximize the value of my Vindicator set bonus...

Indeed, cutting self-heals in half is a big deal.

Annihilation was the weakest of the three for rated warzones - yet another PvE-inspired nerf.

I was asking for focus/rage nerf back since 1.2.. Yet all this time it gets buffs and buffs.. Good thing i am a sniper and i got the tools to deal with them.

Even before the nerf they were the least viable sentinel spec in competitive ranked games, ask anyone who plays ranked competitively. It doesn't fit into the meta of calling a target and bursting them down, and good healers cleanse dots. And it's obviously good 1v1 but it can't off-node guard without stealth and will lose to a good scoundrel or shadow when they get the stealth opener. It's great for 1v2ing bads which might be their justification for the nerf, but doesn't really have a place in competitive play right now. It's sad- it's probably my favorite and best spec. Now I'm always either focus or combat in rateds depending on what the team needs and on the warzone that pops.
