    Default Marksman is not weak!

    At least as of today's initial patch, Marksman is not weak... about same damage as before, give or take. People have slightly higher HP but it's still a killing machine.

    I noticed that the patch notes didn't include the nerfs to empowered shot, STK, etc. I wonder if those got nixed, or are still waiting in the wings for hotfixy-patchy-time.

    No valor, but net damage reductions (on about the order of if not greater than existing valor totals pre-SL).

    They're there;

    * Marksman: Reduced the damage bonus granted by Shoot to Kill by 50% in PvP combat.
    * Reduced the damage of Marksman's Empowered Shot, Rapid Fire Shot, and Deadeye Shot in PvP combat.
    Marksman is still wonderful. Clerics are much more killable!

    Huh! They must have added them, because I was looking for them the minute the notes were posted and they weren't there.

    P.S. Have a box of tissues ready for the first time you get hit by Nysyr's with no valor

    It's not "no valor". The damage reduction is the same or higher than with functioning valor.

    Erp! Reading comprehension for the win. The ES/STK changes were in the PvP section, not the MM section, that's why I missed them.

    Serves me right for working when I should be giving the forums my full attention.

    Well, huzzah. I guess I won't have to lower myself to melee specs

    Hopefully it's not still glaringly OP, though. I'll see for myself in a day or two hopefully.

    Damagewise I'd say it's definitely lower than before. Empowered seems to top out around 2k crit for me now, give or take, when it was topping at 3ks before. Rapid Fire Shot does about 700 x 5 or so to the average opponent and stuff.

    I feel stronger than I was yesterday, but at the same time there haven't been many healers around (and healers don't seem immortal anymore either).

    no no healers were'nt immortal...we just didnt use CC and the whole team didnt coordinate like seal team 6 just to kill them.God forbid there was healers healing healers...
    Well removing the bull rush from my warriors arsenal of abilities has really pissed me off.
