Were going to see love (maybe) when they raise the level cap. And give EVERYONE new abilities.

Noone except the smashers thinks that rage/focus is balanced, and not exactly surprising most of them defend the spec tooth an nail

Depends on what we get vs what they get I think. Look at sent/mara at 30 vs the same class at 40 or 45. Other classes are getting tools in that range too, but that's when they get Guarded, that's when Combat gets Precision Slash. Smash spec is pretty much worthless before 40.

Personally, I'm expecting our interrupt to be reduced to 10m, and Cryo Grenade to be changed to a root (Commando only).
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

with the advent of more talent points, id imagine they add another tier to each tree.

if not you start having to balance some weird hybrid crap.

but what I was saying was that if both you and your opponent have 1200 expertise, the offensive and defensive bonuses cancel themselves out.

so even tho the PvP Damage Bonus % is always a little higher than PvP Damage Reduction, when equal Expertise players fight each other they are Expertise bonus neutral
So if most ppl are only going 1200 expertise than wouldnt I be taking less damage from them since I have 1390?

you will be reducing ~1% more damage, give or take. personally, i would take the extra Aim + End. Bracers/Belt are a great place to swap out a bit of expertise for +Aim and +End

i like candy corn


this is all wildly speculative, and i kinda cba. bioware has barely mentioned anything about how the new level cap will affect class balance.

like others have said, balance now before adding new stuff. that is common sense.
