WAR Update

What's this?  A WAR post?  I know, it has been quite a while since my last one.  The Mythic team is currently working on the 1.4.7 patch which mostly address some Combat and Career balancing.  In this case, the normalization of effects.

It doesn't sound all that cool, but equality is an important part of a PvP experience.

From the forums:

The upcoming patch will see the following standardizations applied to these categories of CC abilities and morale abilities:

==[ Knockdowns ]====
3s - Knockdown, AoE Ability
4s - Knockdown, ST Ability or AoE Morale
5s - Knockdown, ST Morale

==[ Staggers ]====
3s - Stagger, AoE Ability
6s - Stagger, ST Ability or AoE Morale
9s - Stagger, ST Morale

==[ Roots ]====
5s - Root, Ability
10s - Root, Morale

Currently, values vary.  With this change everyone will be on a level playing field.  It does not change which careers have access to which type of CC though.  It also affects some classes, who may not have been really a problem like my Engineers Land Mine.  But you know what?  That's ok.  Sometimes you have to take one for the team.

Whose to say improvements for those classes won't follow anyway?  You have to start somewhere.
