    • Decreased the damage done by all Light Attacks by approximately 20%.
    • Decreased the damage done by all Heavy Attacks by approximately 13%.

    Big gz on all the QQ.

    Apart from that, all changes look positive. Especially ones with Item Set redesigns. I also like master writ chances being increased by the knowledge of more rare styles.

    Thanks @ZOS_GinaBruno and all devs, you legitimately proved you have an eye over these forums.

    Ah some of the bugs I have found getting fixed good.

    Now those trials sets are a lot more interesting.
    The tank one still seems a bit weak but I really feel you learnt a lot about what players are looking for in sets.

    Positive changes responding to our concerns good work.

    I know for a lot of people it wont be enough, since class balance still needs work, I wouldn't hold it against you if you waited to see how the psijic skill line changed things and made bigger changes next quarter.

    • Exposed overrideRank to APIs for addons: GetAbilityDescription(), GetAbilityCost(), GetAbilityDuration(), GetAbilityCastInfo(), GetAbilityRange(), GetAbilityRadius(), GetAbilityTargetDescription()

    This could lead to very interesting possibilities.
