Playing both classes it is very apparent that Shiv is faster compared to the scoundrels arsenal,doesnt require standing behind etc,,is this an oversight?

animation to shiv looks faster but damage is delivered at the same time, and back blast's mirror talent is backstab, which, you guessed it, does require being behind the target.

I want a basterwhip.

And what he said - damage applied identically. Think the only mirror ability that was having actual issues along these lines was sage's Project.
It's a small world and it smells funny, I'd buy another if it wasn't for the money.

Well i missed the L in blasterwhip,,sorry i am not too great with the keyboard my occupation is using a hammer etc not a keyboard.
Back on topic like said above the animation is far faster,i may even make a vid with myself and my friend me a scoundrel and he on his Op,it really is very easy to see.

As LilTsar said...only the animation times are off.
