The changes we submitted up to Test balanced out our DPS numbers across our DPS souls but the changes also reduced all of the souls to a level that was below what we intended. In response to the changes we made, and your feedback we have made several further changes to improve all the Warrior DPS souls and balance them so that you have multiple builds to choose from and do not feel trapped in a single cookie cutter build. So without further ado, I am going to give you all a preview of the changes you should see very soon on Alpha. Please keep up the great feedback and thank you all for your patience.Champion:
  • Destroyer’s Bearing - No longer increases the damage of only Attack Point consuming abilities, it now affects all ability attacks.
  • Two Handed Specialization - Is now called Weapon Specialization and enhances all attacks, ranged attacks receive half the bonus melee does.
Paragon:
  • Teaching of the Five Rings - Now enhances all attacks, ranged attacks receive half the bonus melee does.
  • Way of the Mountain - The damage increase to follow up attacks has been increased to 30%.
  • Way of the Wind - Now deals its damage as Air damage instead of Physical damage.
  • Paired Strike - Now deals Air damage instead of Physical damage. The number of follow up attacks that critically hit has increased from 1 to 3.
  • Strike Like Iron – The Damage enhancement has been increased to 20/35/50%.
  • Deadly Grace - Now deals damage based on how many points have been spent in the Paragon soul tree. The balance is set so that if you take Deadly Grace when it is first available it will give the same bonus that it used to, from there it will go up for every point spent in the Paragon soul.
Beastmaster:
  • Fight As One - Now increases the chance to get a critical hit by 5/10/15% and melee damage by 15/30/45%. It has also had its duration increased to 30 seconds and its cooldown reduced to 25 seconds.
Riftblade:
  • Avatar of the Rift - Increased the amount that attack power affects Elemental ability attacks.
  • Elemental Touch - Now based on a percentage of Attack Power. This percentage is modified by the number of points spent in the Riftblade soul.
  • Enhanced Burst - Now 3 points and increases damage by 10/20/30%.
  • Empowered Strikes - New Tier 5 talent that enhances Autoattack damage by a percentage of Attack Power. This percentage is modified by the number of points spent in the Riftblade soul.
  • Soul Tree points have been reset due to the addition of a new talent.
Thanks again.
