Wait, everyone got screwed on something except concealment Ops? So that's why I sit there mezzed for like 15 seconds, getting pissed as all hell, when a coordinated group uses back-to-back mezzes in a wz? Somehow my concealment Op is actually affected by that, must be a bug that affects only me.

...And how do they not cater to watchman spec? B/c they nerfed your healing a whole HALF a point in this last patch? Doesn't have the same burst as the other specs, but it has more sustained dmg. I can pull over 400k with my MK-1 recruit geared sentinel in watchman spec. I've seen watchman specs in WZs hit over 5k for their highest hit, so its not like the burst isn't there for that spec either.

My mind hurts thinking that a watchman sentinel would feel like they've gotten the shaft...

Hopefully this will make the gear grind pointless- so people in WH are on equal footing. Believe it or not but some people want to pvp just to pvp competitively- no huge gear handicaps, no gear grinds- just pvp because pvp is fun.

I know, I know- 'pvp without a grind!? That would never work'.

I guess that would explain why MOBAs, FPS and RTS games are the least popular online multi player games in the world huh? And why sports that don't have huge gear differences never get any interest? /sarcasm off

Maybe it's time for mmos to catch up with the rest of the competitive world and stop making it all about a gear crutch- leave gear grinds for pve care bears please.

I like that, once 1.6 launches, all you will really need is WH + augments and you are really in the game. Gearheads, no disrespect intended, can still grind up to EWH for an edge and I am sure many will engage in optimization too (grinding Best in Slot mods, etc).

I wonder how this will shake out for those who have *already* optimized. Will they have to re-grind?
