    It's a good question. I recommended to Caith in Discord as well as a feedback form to make the rune proc only on Rescue/Sneering Assault/2 taunts.

    Probably go unheard, but It's worth a shot. At least that way you can balance it by Pot/Fervor. Instead of the damage being directly related to being able to proc it 350 times in a 4 minute fight by turning on autoattack.

    Planar Mastery: Fighter's taunt damage component will now only be granted in defensive stance.

    ---

    This is not enough of a change - tanks will only swap to defstance and continue to mash those 5 buttons in total all the time since the difference is too small.

    If you want to have a good rune for all fighters, provide an extra taunt amount if both taunts are being used after one another and/or the next 3 combat arts/spells will deal additional hategain.
    Tying huge damage to defstance feels wrong.

    and where is the correction in planar mastery: bruiser that will actually increase the damage of savage assault and not decrease it ?

    This change makes the Sk epic 2.0 ability completely obsolete.. I wonder if that was by design or by accident :(
  7. Pioneer Member

    So what should I do as an SK? Betray to Pally?
    All other tanks obtain a little weaker but same damage effect and I have to throw out epic 2.0 or rune that tooks me 2 months of game?
    Could you make your updates in other forms than those who are unfair beforehand and deprive me of part of the game?
  8. Earar Well-Known Member

    only 1 class can remain

    the devs chose pally

    They should just keep the damage amount the same but only allow it on the 2 or 3 regular taunts. I totally understand if it was removed from taunt procs, etc, including spells that make all attacks taunt, I totally get it.

    Now I will really be annoyed if they keep it the same, but only works in def stance, offensive stance is supposed to DPS more On general, but not with this change. Also just on sheer principal it defeats the purpose of even going for the epic which was great to be able to use offensive stance and use death prevents. I hope that's not final. Just lessen the damage and or limit what taunts proc the damage. Jebus
