Hey folks,

Below are the changes that are coming to Vengeance and Vigilance in Game Update 5.5:

Quote:
Note: All changes below are currently in development and are subject to change before being released.

Juggernaut
  • The damage done by Chilling Scream due to the Piercing Chill utility has been reduced by 60%
Vengeance
  • Increased the bleed damage bonus given by Bloodmaster per bleeding effect from 3% to 5%, now stacking up to 15%
  • Increased the melee bonus damage given by Ravager from 3% to 5%
  • Draining Scream now deals 45% more damage

Guardian
  • The damage done by Freezing Force due to the Persistent Chill utility has been reduced by 60%
Vigilance
  • Increased the burn damage bonus given by Burnmaster per burning effect from 3% to 5%, now stacking up to 15%
  • Increased the melee bonus damage given by Master Focus from 3% to 5%
  • Burning Blade now deals 45% more damage

DevNotes: Chilling Scream / Freezing Force was doing too much damage with the Piercing Chill / Persistent Chill utility. It was being used as a single-target rotational ability when itís intended use was multi-target AOE, so we reduced the damage it deals with Piercing Chill / Persistent Chill. To make up for part of the DPS loss, we increased the damage of Draining Scream / Burning Blade by 45%. Then to make up for the rest of the DPS needed to bring Vengeance / Vigilance in line with its DPS target, we increased periodic damage and overall melee damage through two passive abilities.

These look like great changes, the class needed a small buff to single target sustain and a small nerf to AoE, these changes are most likely going to result in just that, good job!

So Rage Juggys take a hit with Chilling Scream as well, but nothing to compensate this loss of DPS? Only Vengeance gets it rebalanced?

Take a chill pill man, if they changed something for all juggs and not just adjust it for a single spec, it means that all roles of that class were overperforming with that specific ability.

Freezing Force is overtuned, no questions asked. However, it really helps Focus to pull the numbers.

60 % is a small nerf? what exactly is a large nerf for you? this is just another edition in BW overnerfing AOEs.

What on Earth gave you the impression I was excited? Please take your own chill pill, you obviously need it more than anyone else here, LOL

Well, I am certain he doesn't play a Jugg or Guardian, and has been getting wrecked by them in PVP, lol (although he is certain to claim otherwise) hehehehe

60% is too much. No one will take it now. Are you sure that developer team is competent,? Seems not
