gmmg.9210 Posted May 25 Share Posted May 25 Blade needs reworks in Dragon Slash and Stability in Trigger Guard and/or Dragonscale Defense, not simply more shout/barrier heals. Now Blades can run around and virtually never get killed without being outnumbered or pressured with extreme cc. This is not what we needed. Simply giving back the Stab on Dragonscale Defense would've done a better job of bringing it back into the meta without making it barrier/shout invincible tanks. Seriously that one nerf was way more damaging to the spec than the Shout nerf from last year. Blade can't exist proficiently without having stability access in it's kit. A spellbreaker and Berzerker gets stab access in their kits and yet Blade (the teamfighting brawler) doesn't?? The whole point of Blade was to be a "brawler" type like it was discussed in the philosophy of pvp balance livestream. Brawlers should be able to withstand group fights without getting knocked around like a pinball, and that's still the case even when taking stability skills because Dragon Stance leaves the user super vulnerable. Only now it's made up for more because the shouts and barrier buffs made it not die as easily... This is not the right direction. It needs to contribute to teamfights by having Stability access in its Dragon Stance! That, with an actual rework and jank cleanup would make this spec healthy and viable, without it being some busted barrier shout god that never dies. Fix the Tactics traits without just buffing the Shout GM, make Dragon Stance be able to cancel out of, let us store bullets in combat from channeling our Dragon Slash if we want to, fix the awful Dragon Slash bug that prevents us from even moving.. etc. Once this spec finally has stability then please nerf the barrier and/or shout heals so that two blades can duel without it being a never ending story of dueling, and Spellbreaker can actually look like the real duelist in comparison to the shout spam tank. 5 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
