    Default has anyone tested PTS split personality nerf?

    Does anyone know how much weaker the split personalities are in 1.4?

    Split Personality isn't weaker, it just doesn't get benefit from Spotter's Order.

    Edit: They are also saying that they are adjusting Spotter's Order so that specs get closer to the same benefit. Ideally this means a buff for other specs rather then a nerf for Zoomancer.

    50% was bandied around a while ago. That number is no longer seen on any Trion posts so I'm not sure where it came from now...

    Why would they nerf the only dmg a dominator has? Yes, they got stormshackle, but thats basically dependent on the target being stupid enough to kill himself.

    Also split personality is so easily countered with one meager purge.

    This game is developing in a direction I dont like. Its dumbing down to appease the masses of 1-button rogues/wars. I used to like rift, but with the current state of PvP i can guarantee as soon as GW2 hit the shelves Im out of this ****ty no-brainer, unbalanced pure dps/healing game.

    The stated nerf for pyro was -20%. This translates to roughly 50% nerf in actual combat.

    No I mean 50% nerf to Void Bolt damage was something I read a while back, but can't find it at all now. Maybe I dreamt it.

    had some random ow-pvp on the pts so i couldnt tell you the gear the defiant players were using but i did get to test the shades and transference.

    shades crit for about 600
    warriors we're still empty with a trans>delayed ti.

    so dom is still looking like dom in pvp, just a bit toned down.
