Thanks for the feedback from the balance preview posts (original global preview).
Sweet feedback, salty feedback, spicy feedback it's all deeply appreciated as long as it is kept civil.
We got these additional changes for upcoming update that'll likely be in the late notes, so if you don't see them in the immediate release notes, these changes'll still be there.
Feel My Wrath (FMW) was near the top of our list for adjustments for PvE and your feedback pushed it to be unsplit from PvP & WvW now rather than later.
With the balance update, across all modes, Feel My Wrath will be:
Cooldown 35 seconds
Quickness - 5 seconds
Fury - 10 seconds
As per the preview with Stone Flesh, we don't like that a minor trait gives you toughness and can make your elementalist a target in some of our content when that's not the goal of your build. We'll keep finding more places to adjust this, and the solution won't be the same in all places.
We didn't have the opportunity this time to hit all of these cases so if you see something missing it is because we couldn't get to it this time. It's still on the list to adjust Soon(tm).
As a sidenote to this specific type of change: This is NOT something that we're changing if it is a major trait choice for this reason alone. If there are other reasons for changing traits, we'll look at this independently.
Other traits with this behavior that we'll be looking at along these lines are:
While we won't be able to get in more changes after this week for this release, we'll be taking notes for the future.
Please keep posting your civil, sweet, salty and spicy feedback.
