    The change to birds makes sense but I feel like people spammed it because it's the only class DPS a Warden has. My question is how will this change a Warden's burst in PvP? Will it not make much of a difference or will it impact the class so much that players will shelf their Wardens and play another class?

    Warden's don't have much DPS as it is so this nerfs what they were good at in PvP... burst. Probably won't impact the good players doing Warden or myself since I changed my Warden to more of a tank (saw this coming). More minor buffs (emphasis on minor) to some Warden passives and abilities would make up for this change to birds and also make them slightly more viable in DPS situations. (since I sense some nerfs to other abilities coming as well)

    Plus I thought I read somewhere that birds were already reflectable? Did I imagine that lol? I think I did.

    Another excellent patch, thank you.


    A question: did you miss Bombard/Acid Spray, or do those remain dodgeable by purpose?

    Similar cone AoE abilities: Sweeps, Cleave, Shalks, WoE etc are all undodgeable now.

    Wait, how did stamina AoE ability where you literally shoot daggers got undodgeable treatment, and different stamina AoE ability where you literally shoot arrows is still dodgeable...

    This does not sound to me like it adhering to any stable mechanics :D

    The real question are:

    why Dive has been undodgeable until now?

    And why it is still unblockable?

    Holy crap.... the birds are dodgeable........... THIS PATCH JUST GOT AMAZING.

    Unfortunately yes "Dive: The damage from this ability and its morphs can now be dodged."

    Can't believe that. My MagWarden is *** in PvE Damage and now you steal his Bird-Attack in PvP. What should I do in PvP then? Be a healer or tank?

    Should switch to a twohand-stamina then for PvP... seems to be better. Bye Bye my Warden.

    Learn a combo for it. Once they get half health just pressure with Bird and another attack.

    Maybe it was just the stam morph that was undodgeable? Impale was definitely dodgeable.

    I agree. I love Wardens, some minor buffs would be nice. We'll see but I'm not going to wait for it that's for sure.

    So does that mean the off-balance cooldown starts at the first proc of off-balance or when off-balance runs out?

    Soul Harvest still needs additional effects to be viable in PvP. Powerlash needs to not be consumed if dodged (I would like to say the same for grim focus but one fight at a time). Otherwise pretty good notes

    Are orbs and shards still sharing a cooldown or have they been reverted back to separate cooldowns?
