As the title says. What effect will it have? Will shockwave only stack 2-3 instead of 4? That would be really bad. Futhermore they change the pve set bonus and change sumdering assault with a 15 sec cd. Gonna rage starve maybe... Anyone testes yet?

PvP isn't the only part of this game. With a nerf to smash, there goes any sort of use that we had for Jugg DPS in OPs/FP's

Thats for Rage juggs... Vengeance Juggs are extremely viable (I play one). While they won't lead the charts during trash fights... who cares? If I can get into a boss fight where I can stand still for my rotation and get off ravage and ravage, then I'll do more than my fair share of damage.

So is it confirmed that it will only stack 2 or 3?

And ye pvp isn't te only part. For the "lolsmashers"-QQers this won't be enough anyway. They'll keep crying. But pve and dps wise it might change alot. Especially now that te rotation gotta be changed somehow, now that sumdering got 15 sec cd

Can someone who's on the PTS server confirm how the damage has been affected? For example tell us how much damage a 4x stack Smash does currently vs a 3x stack on PTS with the same gear?

Is the effect of each individual stack increased? If so it means we can smash faster and we got a boost!

If the stacks are the same, but reduced to 3 then the Smash has been greatly weakened..

shockwave only ticks 3 time snow with each 33.3%, so 100% afterall. but
shockwave is only build by enrage and dorce crush NOT choke.
and smash is indirectly nerfed ( and so are all other force abilities), since they changed dark resonance from 30 to 15%.

Rage tree looks VERY different now. actually good, but gotta change quite a few thingss :P

oh, and you get a perk: increasing all damage dealt by 9% for 18 secs after using smash. kinda nice :P
