    Default Quality of Life change for Bladedancer

    First i must say that i am enjoying 51 BD after 1.7. 1 thing that bothers me is that i cant use Sprint or Side Steps (if i pull aggro) without canceling my other CDs in BD, considering BD is only viable with CDs up, canceling one of them drops your dps substantialy.

    I propose that Sprint and Side Steps not cancel Double Coup, BASP, Blade Tempo, or Dualism.

    Just make the 4 dps cooldowns into passives and lower the cool down on precision strike. When I think of QoL changes for blade dancer I remember pre-1.5 marksman.

    That would make BD waaaaay to strong.

    I don't think not having to worry about cool down management would make BD too strong. If you think I am saying to leave them in their current form you are wrong. Obviously balance changes would need to be implemented to make them 1/3 to 1/4 as good as they currently are. for them to become passives

    Why?

    If you want an easy rotation go play MM or NB.

    Agree, sprint really needs to be split off from dmg cooldowns. Sidesteps can stay where it is, I can understand it being there.
    Edit: Zyzyx I think you're a pretty ok poster, but you should stop trying to get every spec changed into 3 button ******** just so you can play it.

    +1 for sprint being a seperate cooldown.


    Sidesteps should stay where it is though.

    honestly i think having just a passive 10% runspeed increase would fix blade dancer for me altogether. id love to be able to use it in pvp, but i just have no way of healing my self like other classes do.

    you don't like bd because you cannot manage simple CDs. We get it. Now go sit in the corner and stop trying to ruin BD.

    Because you SHOULD suffer a dps loss if you get yourself into the position of needing to use sprint/side steps.
