"Heat Blast is no longer limited by the global cooldown. "Its damage has been reduced by approximately 15%."

What does this exactly mean, never used the skill.. Does it mean that it has no cooldown anymore, and can be spammed? Or that it shared a cooldown with something else before?

Meaning when you use it, it isn't limited by the 1.5sec wait you have between abilities.

You can use it the same time that you use another ability.

It's not garbage at all. It removes heat. It's not sexy, and the animation sucks, but if you're >15 heat, then it's amazing.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

If youre 31 in shieldtech for anything other than PVE, youre doing it wrong.

Basically Heat Blast becomes the Shieldtech's "Riposte" ability. An extra attack that can be used on cooldown for extra threat without disrupting your normal rotation.

Heat Blast is a great ability and always has been; the only thing really holding it back is its piss poor animation (it's the one-handed version of the Gunslinger's Quickdraw; rehashed animations for the lose). If it was something more epic like Immolate that would be awesome.
