Below are the upcoming changes for Concealment and Scrapper coming in Game Update 5.4.

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

Operative
Concealment
  • Acid Blade's damage has been reduced by 27.78%
  • Collateral Strike's damage has been reduced by 27.68%

Scoundrel
Scrapper
  • Flechette Round's damage has been reduced by 27.78%
  • Flying Fistsí damage has been reduced by 27.68%

DevNotes: The Concealment / Scrapper discipline was dealing more DPS than intended, so we made a couple changes to shrink it down a bit. These changes allow the Concealment Operative / Scrapper Scoundrel to still deal decent burst damage while having their sustained damage output brought in line with the DPS target.

This will bring down the dps by roughly 450, bringing the top parse to just above 9900.

What's insane is being able to burst a juggernaut down over the duration of your hardstuns.

Cool
so
anything being done about "invincible 1/4 of the time" godbubble rolls? That buff is extremely OP in PvP environments. If it had a rate limit of 1min sure, but every time? You sure that's balanced?
Then again, you gave mercs 4 lives, so who knows what you consider to be fair

This only lowers the top parse by 430ish dps, so it'll be around 9900.

Edit: removed dumb claim about it's ranking. Still should be ok for most things though.

Will actually be the lowest melee burst spec after these changes, with the only specs parsing less being the ranged burst specs (obviously), and madness. At least it wasn't completely neutered like arsenal, concealment will still be able to complete dps checks.

No? Ap over 10k. Deception over 10k. Carnage most likely over 10k after nerf, tho I can't say for sure. Rage over 10k. So lowest of all melee burst...

But then again what do I know.

On another subject:
5.3 and 5.4 class balance have been disappointment after disappointment for me. Instead of fixing utilities and allowing more classes to clear hard content, they just nerf DPS hard and slightly buff (instead of slightly nerfing and buffing hard) so people can't clear bosses they used to, and they ignore broken PVP utilities. I was so pumped for class changes, trying to voice my opinion and see what could be good, trying to get ideas with the community. Now PVE is worse off than it was, and PVP is still an unbalanced mess.

Just when Concealment FINALLY became a viable PVE DPS spec to be respected in raids in 5.0....the PVP whine steps into place....

I here the click click click of more unsubs coming. BioWare is intent on destroying the game and alienating more and more paying customers.
