Damage of CC skills in WvW

So huh... I may have missed this info, since I do not really play WvW seriously, nor with "meta" builds but...

How is that Executioner's Scythe has a damage of 21? I'd swear that I remember it doing way more damage, at least in PvP arenas. Have all CC skills been nerfed in damage for WvW? Since the Chilled to the Bone also has like 7 damage.

    ANet nerfed all hard CC skill damage modifier to 0.01 in sPvP and WvW.

  • Yes, power coefficient is essentially zero now (~0.10). You can, however still do damage on CC: run "Curses" --> Insidious Disruption. This option actually got a lot better with the lower power coefficients and lower corrupt output/lower number of cleanses on enemy classes. It makes all our hard CCs hit a bit harder than on other classes, and the damage output is not affected by target toughness. Plus, usually, people will break stun, and then move away from you: the torment punishes them a bit for that.

    A 1.25 second pre-cast with a 2.5 second stun on a 4 second skill.

    My math skills may be rusty but...
