Man this is such a classic thread. I still remember arguing about this topic during stats revamp testing. I will not argue in depth again since the devs already chose their side, but my argument still stands. Hybrid should've been doing more damage than PffT. I fail to see how that logic concept was ignored by some guys and devs. Personally, I think they should have gotten rid of masteries and let people play the way the powers were designed to be played. I know we arguing for balance here, but really!? If any playstyle deserves to be the outlier it should have been hybrid. I mean we're talking More required skill points to invest. Using both of the game combat mechanics instead of one. Dealing with the balance of powers and weapons. Clipping usage The list can continue but ehh, im not gonna get into all this until I see a green name down for the cause. Hybrid should've been in the spot where PffT is now. Not blowing the other masteries out by numbers but in the lead of playstyle damage. But Fatal here is arguing for something more in depth, so I'll let yall argue this one out. I bet if hybrid was the dominate choice of dps playstyle, these balance complaints would not be as heavy as it is now. P.s. I wonder how this thread argument will compare to the first thread about this topic?
