They ruined it, they added some distance to the push and made some erratic animation/fx that makes no sense. The skill that you used to push people back who where chasing you or to knock people off was made 100% to knock people off ledges standing in front of you and it even sucks at that. EA/Bioware developer team is a joke and so is whomever is in charge of it.

I mean, I'm sure people will get used to the mechanics and once they do, it won't be so bad.

But man, the animation for it is just sooooo bad...

I don't mind the mechanics change but yeah the animation is weird with the timing of the ability going off. You hear and see the smash & wave go our way before your character lands on the ground. I know they were trying to fix the delay on the ability with the animation, but it just looks wrong.

It doesn't push near as far as it did. It's utterly useless now.

it's only pushing people I use it on only 5yards still. which makes it utterly useless and it is a complete nerf. As a Healer, I have no way to escape from a focusing mob of people. If it's only gonna push people 5yards infront of me, then it needs to be an aoe knockback and not this conal thing. Now I can understand that in the lightning tree you can root people u hit with Overload, but the move should still be the aoe effect and the lightning tree people would have it changed to the conal dmg to root them with. That would been more in line with other abilities and classes
