WvW zerg scourge stip nerf?

Someone stated recently that the WvW ezrg scourges had their boon strip and corrupt nerfed in on of the last patches.

However, I don't see much at first glance aside from dagger-5.
The reduced sand shade duration does not necessarily mean less trips, right?

Can you please remind me, which were the scourge -pecific nerfs that would meake reaper or harbingers prefered in w WvW or guild setup?

June 27th patch:

  • Unholy Feast: This skill now removes boons instead of converting them into conditions. Increased power coefficient from 1.0 to 1.2 in WvW and from 1.3 to 1.5 in PvP.
  • Spiteful Spirit: This trait now removes boons instead of converting them into conditions.
  • Enfeebling Blood: This skill no longer converts boons into conditions. Reduced cooldown from 25 seconds to 18 seconds in WvW and PvP.
  • Lesser Enfeeble: This skill no longer converts boons into conditions
  • Signet of the Locust: Reduced cooldown from 30 seconds to 25 seconds in PvE only. Reduced the number of boons removed from 2 to 1 in WvW only.

It's not excessive but there are some losses and there is a stark difference between boon conversion and boon riping.

Well, that said, other boon hate specs took an equally hard hit in this same patch.

Thanks for the reminder! However, those affect all necro specializations, right?

Indeed. In the same patch, Scourge also suffered from a mechanic change which make it harder to cover the area with shades but I didn't talk about it because the thread is about "boon strip".

Two more bits: Devouring Darkness (Lingering Curse Scepter 3) had its cooldown increased to 18 seconds and Path of Corruption also increases the cooldown of Nefarious Favor (Scourge F2) by 50%.  Both changes WvW only.
