Guessing tomorrows patch if there is one has no significant balance changes due to lack of pre patch notes. Good stuff.

    Only minor changes. One is:

    Thief

    • Backstab: Removed the increased damage when the target is hit from behind in PvP only.

    I wouldn't call the changes only minor, stealth being removed and replaced with visability mechanic which highlights the thief to make it more identifiable in all situations seem like a pretty hefty change to me especially given the movement de buff that comes with it.

    Im sorry what? The entire concept of the skill is to get behind(B A C K stab) to get more value and they removed it? Should they jus rename the skill to "Stab"? :)

    That was only a joke based on the recent threads. Calm down folks! ;)

    To add something substantial: I also do not expect significant changes tomorrow. But who knows... it's anet.

    That is fair. It will have 100% uptime as it was always supposed to be. After all it is a mirage. You are not supposed to be able to hit it.

    I think we should do one more change so the meta is fully balanced. Guardian MoS CD is 0.25 sec. Traited, CD is removed. The only limitation would be how fast you can spam the button.

    They ONLY do balance patches when we get pve patches now. CmC has barely any control, I'd be surprised if he is officially working on PvP/WvW anymore.

    I meant they never release balance patches along new pve content, like fractals or living world episodes

    Forums is hard these days you gotta explain everything in details to not be misundertood

    Wouldn't it be funny if they booted him cause he managed to fix WvW in a hot fix patch and opened the door for different comps instead of scourge wars, but the guy who does the scourge changes is higher up and is pissed.
