    Default Dervish Tuning Changes Incoming..

    Posted a little bit ago in PTS section of forums: http://forums.riftgame.com/general-d...ml#post5154259

    While we all love our spinning overlords, Dervish has been doing a bit too much damage on live in recent days. The following changes are up on PTS now:

    - Lowered Shearing Winds from 100% weapon damage per talent point down to 80% weapon damage per talent point.
    - Reduced Dervish damaging abilities (other than Lashing Wind and Seismic Smash) by ~5.8%

    Please feel free to test this out and throw parses up. I know damage reductions are never fun to experience, but hopefully you can all appreciate the goal of keeping all DPS fairly equitable in terms of their damage potential.
    I would post feedback/commentary/parses on his original thread. Just wanted to link here so no one missed the 411.

    Thank you for posting this. I usually don't keep up with the DEV tracker. Time to change that.

    That sucks, they have pretty low survivability and still don't hit as hard as my paragon for example..and now being nerfed?

    I really regret paying for primalist. It's boring - 6 souls and half the points half the abilities and very little hybrid action, still buggy, squishy as turd and slowly having its DPS lowered.
    Tbh I only play mine cos I don't want to admit I made a mistake buying it...but its time to be honest with myself I think.

    85k thats about average... Dervish looks high a lot of the time because whirling dervish hits other random stuff.

    Dont screw over the only fun spec primalist has....

    Would be nice if the dev doing the nerfing actually played Dervish, and wasnt subject to those crying in his ear. IF there was a nerf it should have been to just Whirling Dervish not EVERY OTHER skill.

    I call this the clueless dev nerf.

    Edit: I hope this isnt because of PVP changes, but then again devs would nerf their own mother just to make people stop crying.

    If you are going to nerf our dps specs, at least give us some ****ing utility. *Hint vulcanist hint*

    would have preferred seeing a nerf to just earthfall and whirling dervish instead of all the sustain stuff, but I guess the hybrid needed a nerf too or something.
