    Default The only Saboteur change that should be made to end all of the QQs

    Instead of the combat log damage from 5 blast charges combining into one huge number and one crit check, split that damage up. The class is already bursty enough, and this would alleviate a lot of people's concerns. People love to cry when a large number kills them. Honestly if the damage on the combat log was like this to begin with, I doubt we would have ever heard a complaint about Sabo's in the first place. Yes I understand Sabos max damage (by about 15%) comes from stacking 5 different charges and goes through 5 crit checks as is, but we still 5x blast for anni bomb popping.

    5 Blast Charges currently shows up as this 1/6th of the time
    Saboteurs Blast Charge critically hits Opponent for 2475 damage.

    5 Blast charges should show up as
    Saboteurs Blast Charge hits Opponent for 275 damage.
    Saboteurs Blast Charge hits Opponent for 275 damage.
    Saboteurs Blast Charge hits Opponent for 275 damage.
    Saboteurs Blast Charge critically hits Opponent for 413 damage.
    Saboteurs Blast Charge hits Opponent for 275 damage.
    Saboteurs Blast Charge hits Opponent for 275 damage.

    Unfortunately, people would still cry because they just enjoy crying.

    You want to know something more annoying than the threads crying about saboteurs? Its the threads defending them.

    Probably. Though Trion seems pretty secure with the state of Saboteurs as it is right now. I could see them making this change because it just makes sense honestly. Each charge should have it's own seperate parry/dodge/resist/crit check.
