In addition to crowd-control trait reworks, this update also addresses traits that deal instant damage and how they affect the game. The large majority of these traits have had their base damage increased while removing their ability to critically hit in order to improve pacing and reduce time-to-kill in competitive game modes.
Shattered Aegis: The damage of this trait has been increased by 20% in PvE only. This trait can no longer critically hit.
Power Block: The damage of this skill has been increased by 20% so that it now matches its tooltip. This trait can no longer critically hit foes.
theyre not instant damage. power block sorta is but its different from what youre describing. shattered aegis requires the target to hit you, and power block requires an interrupt/ no stability. currently power block is NOT meta or even that strong, and shattered aegis lol was never used really except in some niche/meme builds.
you don't know till you know, ya know.
