Here is the skill trees revamp: http://pts.swtor-spy.com/skill-tree-.../guardian/225/
Singularity/Shock will not generate stacks off of Stasis anymore.

You can also go to the PTS forum to see these things or copy your toon over to the PTS and see for yourself. This really blows up my hybrid smashtank spec, but the only reason I was hybrid was because shield generators sucked and the DEF/IMM tree needed some TLC...


I got both so now I will actually be a real tank...

On pvp servers like POT5 or JM there are almost always more sorc/sages than sent/maras logged in at 50. if you check those that are pvping there are usually more sages/sorcs than sent/maras.

It doesn't really matter what nerfs BW throws at them, mercs and bad sorcs are going to whine about maras until the end of time.

There's still not going to change the fact you have to play rage in ranked, undying rage on 45 second cooldown (skill+set bonus)? Smash still autocrit so goes through the new and improved shielding mechanic, and with the lower crit across the board they are actually buffed relatively speaking.

No he's talking about whatever the imp equivalent of combat trance is.

Right now Ataru Form has a 30% chance to proc opportune attack and 100% chance to proc combat trance.

While combat trance is active Blade Storm is an auto-crit.

In 2.0 Combat Trance is tied to opportune attack, so only a 30% chance to proc combat trance, and the autocrit that comes with it (though now Combat Trance gives you your focus back when you Blade Storm).

That ain't a small change. That's a huge nerf to Combat Burst.

Meanwhile, smash has undergone a rebalance at worst. Smash hits a bit less harder, but everything else hits a lot harder.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

I use about 5 or 6 on my focus spec guardian thank you :P Some of us that played from the start don't just spam force sweep lol. The changes look good anyways, it isn't much of a nerf at all.

I agree , imo it was pretty much a buff, lets not forget that now there is a bigger difference between defense and dmg buff from expertise, which gives a buff to burst classes , if you ignore the better curve of bonus dmg, smash dmg has been buffed by 3% and all other dmg buffed too.
