It was to strong alongside ranger's traps and the result was that ranger's traps got nerfed. After that it ended being to strong alongside thief's traps and the result is that thiefs traps ended up being nerfed and then directly changed to "preparations". Now it's to strong alongside DH traps and you're basically saying the issue isn't the runes...Let's imagine that EoD give the necromancer an elite spec with traps, how much are you willing to bet that alongside runes of the trapper it would be balanced? Come on just imagine necromancer with superspeed and stealth... Other examples: thematically, traps fit both mesmer and engineer so I wouldn't be surprised to see trap given to them in elite spec (mind traps for mesmers and well mechanisl traps for engi). Just imagine them with extra access to superspeed and stealth. For both it wouldn't hurt thematically at all, but balance wise it would be a nightmare.From the very begining, this runeset is a balance issue, the fact that it wasn't changed yet is what's surprising.Not that I have a dog in this fight, but this is a good way to think about the runes.Think of if the warrior EoD espec got traps. Stealthed Bulls Charge or stealthed Earthshakers would happen. The stealth would cover warrior's biggest weakness, highly telegraphed animations. So, apply the exercise to other classes that lack stealth and ask yourself if they become broken.Stealth on a rune set is truthfully an incredibly terrible idea. It's thematic for sure, but without an icd it becomes broken. This is in part because of how stealth stacks. If it functioned like superspeed, where it just overrode the last application 85% of the qq on anything that today chest stealth would disappear.So, IMHO, either change stealth to not stack, or put a 5s cd on the runes. The stealth change would honestly be healthier for the game, but that is my opinion on the issue and others are free to disagree. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
