Yeah, speculative details at this point but I'm glad to see dev activity on the issue.

It is interesting. Wonder when the official patch notes will come out to explain these better, or even to prove that they are working on it. Would love to get my merc going again.

Looks like someone just did some data mining. Probably not getting the full picture yet.

Meh...tbh, we shouldn't need changes that massive over a year after launch. This reminds me of what they did continually through beta...never tiny tweaks, always a massive overhaul.

Not all the classes were datamined apparently.

Combat Focus / Zen no longer generates 4 stacks of singularity. So no more Leap -> Insta-crit proc -> Smash

The only way to gain singularity now is by Force Exhaustion (which will require you to go up the entire focus tree; aka no more hybrid smashers who are immune to CC after leap through Unremitting) And Force Stasis which has always been the least reliable method of gaining singularity because you can be interrupted/knocbacked/stunned etc...

I'd say it sounds good. The biggest complaint I hear is 3 smashers leap in and 9k(?) smash. Well, if this datamine is all true the smash will no longer be an opener.

Agreed, seems changes go from one extreme to another. If these linked ones happen, Commandos'll see a damage nerf but being basically 1-trick ponies now those def. buffs imply devs are thinking of balance at least.

I'd like to see more little changes and tweaks also, as much to keep up with player generated trends as to address technical balance.
