    Default Tooltip obfuscation for stalker/guardian phase

    Currently on PTS the tooltip for stalker phase says this:
    Best used for Damage.

    Increases damage done. Plane Shifting further increases damage done and reduces threat generation for 10 seconds.


    Guardian phase:
    Best used for Tanking. Enables Deflect. Increase Armor, Endurance, Resistances, and threat generation. Reduces damage done.


    I play on EU server so I don't have the live patch yet but can someone from US servers confirm if these actually went live? And if they did I would like to know what is the point of removing the actually very relevant information of how large those effects are from those tooltips.

    Easier to slip in stealth buffs/nerfs?

    I'm being totally unhelpful btw as I'm on EU too

    It's like that on the live US servers, too.

    Weird. I know this is a minor issue but I just can't figure out why the info was taken out. I don't know any other abilities that wouldn't state exactly what they are supposed to do.

    My best guess is that they were working on a "beginner tooltips" toggle (WoW has something like this, where it gives descriptions of what the ability is used for rather than specifically what it does), and accidentally put in the wrong description.

    At least, I hope that's the case, because I can't see why they'd specifically rewrite a tooltip to remove useful information for any other reason.

    Well, they fixed EW, so they need to nerf something, why not be sneaky about it.
    AFK.

    Bump for great justice. I find this problem rather annoying.

    This is quite troubling. I just double checked on US live and it's indeed no longer giving the details about the phase.

    Hopefully this was just an oversight, and not something more sinister.
