    Default Poor SAB's

    * The outcome and damage of each charge is now calculated individually. When you detonate 5 Blast Charges, you will see 5 damage numbers, each with its own chance to critically hit, rather than one large number.
    Alas the rogue will become a dying breed now.

    It's just a revamp on how the "charge" mechanics go, it is basically a DoT-one-press-button.

    The change in the OP was needed to prevent the "stars align" one-shots of people in Warfronts. This I do not disagree with.

    The change to Charge Booster is an overly-kneejerk attempt to placate people crying about the aforementioned "stars align" moments that will slash PVE Saboteur DPS by ridiculous amounts.

    And PVE nerfs for PVP's sake are exactly what Trion said they would NOT do.

    I never understood all the crying about Sab's, must have been going on over my highest level which is only 22 and in testing was 29.

    Never had an issue, sure they got me sometimes, but I got them sometimes too.

    So, good luck to Sab's, hope it works out of in testing for you. (Meaning I hope this plays better than it looks on paper!!) Try to hop on Alpha and test, last I saw tonight they still had the /50 buffers and gear up merchants.

    They topped the charts almost constantly for every single of warfront brackets and lead in massive kill counts by basically 2 shotting people.

    Go figure the rage since no one else actually tried any rogue class because sab was so OP

    And cutting their PVE DPS by over 30% based off some quick and dirty testing is not a justifiable reaction to that.

    It's not.

    Period.

    Doing 1 hit of 1000 or 5 of 200 is the same thing... your dps is effectively the same the only thing this does is reduce the amount of burst damage which was the problem in pvp.
    Why cry while you don't understand the implications.

    PS: if you think saboteur was the only viable specc for rogue then **** or learn your calling!
    * LAG is when you get latency related problems. (such as teleporting)
    * Low FPS(Frames Per Second) is when the game starts to stutter and it looks like pictures instead of fluid movement.
