Heya

Im pretty excited about the changes to scoundrels of all flavours in 2.0.
Energy improvements (pugnacity energy regen now baked in, and Pugnacity changed to a 2 min CD) is freaking awesome.
Sawbones moving to more HoT based play with cheaper SRMP and Kolto Pack now healing for about half as much but adding a HoT.
New lvl 51 ability is pretty cool imo.


Whats your view on your class changes?

Here is a link to PTS talent trees to flesh out the info in the patch notes.

But seriously, I can't wait to start having fun on my biggun again

Watchman looks viable again, and Combat now has insane burst. Shadows will have even more influence on tactical play and derpsmash looks like it'll have slightly more smashes going out but no where as hard, but the rest of their abilities look to make up for that in single target dmg.

Overall it looks as though there will be a lot more versatility in classes and more people will play what they actually want to play instead of what they NEED to play.

Can't wait till its live

Combat is getting nerfed. Instead of chilling with 6-7 focus when popping zen then PS + BR + BS combo, you now need to be at 11-12 focus due to there being no cost reduction on BR any more . Focus management in combat is going to be the pits.

Vanguard might be the new huttball tank, with being able to build a leaping/hold the line hybrid. 8 secs of immunity is going to be OP as **** with a combat sent partner.

Well put Tom, I feel exactly the same.

Overall my impression with the changes is excellent.
Well thought out, and improvements to classes that really needed buffs, but everyone seems to have got something cool + QoL improvements.
Just really impressed so far

People being able to play what they want (and still be effective) is exactly what I would have asked for.

I chose my merc over a powerteck because 2 guns are better then one.

I chose my Commando because a big gun is better then a small one. Also i didnt realise they were mirror classes.

Zen in Ataru now increases Alacrity by 30% for 6 abilitiy GCDs, but doesn't reduce the cost on anything. But in saying that it also means Zen + Masterstrike + Bladestorm + Dispatch will be a hectic burst combo.
