Legendary Sergeant's Order needs to go. It's a disease, almost every spec that has been nerfed has been because of it. Neither Tempest or Reaver were able to reach the absurd numbers that are being posted without it. It's a requirement in almost any spec to even reach decent numbers and specs are now being balanced around this one ability.
With Sergeant's Order gone, Tempest doesn't need the 5% nerf on Wavelength. Skyfall on the other hand needs to be fixed. First of all, not hitting the selected target is stupid. It shouldn't be an AOE in the first place. There was no reason to ever make this change. It's a single target burst spec, Lightning Rod should just be a second hit on the target. Hell add Lightning Rod to Chain Pulse as well just get rid of the passive AOE generated by Skyfall. Buff Arc.
Let's give this soul a reason to exist. With Tempest providing passive AOE, this soul has no purpose. Make Plague Bringer cause all abilities to be AOE including Viral Stream. Reduce all damage by 50%.
Without SO, this spec has no burst and even with SO it can't burst as high as Tempest and even with a perfect rotation, it's sustain is garbage. Increase Shifting Blades damage. Make Flurry actually useful. Why is Sweeping Blades still here? Either remove it or change it to 50% damage reduction. It also reduces Open the Stream's damage but doesn't spread it.
Still can't make sense of this spec. Abilities don't work well together and it can't even benefit from SO. Fix it!
With the Nerf to all the Auto Attack abilities, this spec has lost too much power. Let's give it back some of its power and make it useful again.
Why is the ranged pet not fixed yet and why is it a two button spec. Either Cunning Ruse or Vicious Opportunity need to not consume bleeds. Right now it's put up dots, consume, put up dots, consume. I know it's a support spec and it's suppose to be easy but it shouldn't be doing 100k more damage than other support specs with just two buttons.
Can't speak for anyone else but I'm getting sick of only having one decent spec to play and then having it nerfed because of a certain ability that shouldn't be there in the first place. Get rid of SO and balance the specs properly.
