Fights seem to be slower without strike. Not that they take longer, I'm just not as busy. Sad, I really liked both skills.

Gotta wait till I get home to boot up 2.0 and see if they're really gone. In the typical 5+ Section X trashmob I'll use Opportune Strike (following Force Leap or Leg Slash) on both the first and last enemy. I'll often use Blade Storm > Pommel Strike on one in the middle, esp. if I've got to run towards the target first. Both are great for quickly dropping ads before focusing my core rotation on a stronger opponent. Fingers crossed that at least one of them is still in-game!

Both are gone. *mourns the sadly empty spaces in his hotbar*

Ran Ilum, BH and Section X dailies last night. Took a little bit to get used to not having those two talents but I guess I'll live. Interestingly I noticed that something is occasionally ending the cooldown of Precision Slash. It also seems that I can still spam Blade Rush.

I'm v.lazy wrt theorycrafting and optimizing DPS so it's quite possible that I've never noticed it before

I loved that strike. No focus cost, high firepower.

WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE, PEOPLE!?

So you had to pay attention and have some level of skill and strategizing. It's a GAME! It's SUPPOSED to have those things! I used that attack all the time, and now it's gone. I am sad.

I thought i never cared about them but habits says different. Sometimes after brainstorm i try to use them and realize that it's empty slot.
